So, we booked a suite with all the extras for our two night stay for a business trip. Was really looking forward to it but all went down hill from the moment we arrived. First we were told the "hotel2 was double booked and we would have to accept a down graded room ...hmmmm not nice. But we were stuck for time and accepted . The room was dingy and unclean , in fact we had to call for the bed to be re made . We ordered a twin as being two tall men did not want to share..but we got a double and told it was the last. After haveing no option we had to carry on. We went to the very bland bar and was charged £15 for double gin and tonic. The staff here are very robotic and rude does not even begin to describe their attitude. I think they need to be retrained. I would not stay here again and if pushed again would opt for something further away rather than be forced to not enjoy my stay. This is my honest opinion of this hotel

We stayed here on our honeymoon for 1 night and it was a horrible experience. Room was bare - no tablet and the shelf in the mini fridge was broken. The air con also wasn’t working and we were absolutely sweating all night and trying to dry my hair in the morning was horrendous due to the heat! We couldn’t wait to leave - I think it was the first time we actually left 2 hours earlier than check out time. Wouldn’t recommend!

Beautiful luxury Yacht moored in Royal Victoria Dock. We booked via ‘Secret Escapes’ a Classic room 1026 on the first floor. Entrance to the hotel was via small lift that took you to the reception. The room was very large with huge porthole window. The bed was very large and comfy with beautiful white sheets. The facilities in the room were adequate. Air conditioning was available but quite noisy. The only drawback was the continue drone of an air con unit in another room throughout the night. The bar was fantastic with great views but expensive as you would expect. Breakfast in the morning was exceptionally good. My advice would be eat out in the evening as the restaurant although beautiful was very very expensive and the food didn’t match the high prices. My bill came to £169 for two of us although I did get a £20 refund as they overcharged me for two glasses of wine. There are many lovely restaurants in the area so go out and find one. In all a lovely night stay spoilt a little by the restaurant experience.

It was my first time staying here, the room looked nice and rhe view was even better throug the hotel room. In the morning on breakfast, Tatiana was nice, polite and helpful lady, she seems to care a lot about people who stay over, we had a nice chat and this made my stay even nicer.

A novelty hotel.My opinion only.One stay is suffice.Staff on reception a little grumpy which is not what you want on arrival.Our room with balcony was definitely interesting.Just like being in a boat of course but much better.Comfortable seating area leading to a cosy bedroom with great storage for clothes etc.TVs in both rooms and a separate en suite bathroom with a wonderful size bath and fantastic shower. The ship itself is fairly glamorous and you certainly feel like you have money(we don’t🥴)But the feeling good.The major let downs are staff for sure.Not very forthcoming.Bar personnel not the most efficient and service of drinks so time consuming,waiting for ages even when it was quiet.Breakfast best sail down the docks than consuming the food.Maybe it was busy prior to we arrived but not a good variety of fruit etc etc.My partner brought to the table in her hands,milk portions and butter portions and toast wrapped in a napkin as no plates.A la carte breakfast plus the starters not the standard for the price that we paid.One last thing on our last night we ordered a taxi,reception staff informed us it was outside by the barrier.It was not until 5 minutes later.Waiting in Rain and wind for my partner and her friend does not go down well when they spend good time looking presentable for an important evening out.Maybe,again only my opinion as a good old class song says,walk on by.
