I stayed here with my boyfriend for our anniversary. The concierge very kindly upgraded our room. It was wonderful. We overlooked the Thames and were directly above the Helipad, which was amazing for watching the helicopters take off and land. The breakfast is very good. Lots to choose from. The spa is small but lovely. The customer service was very good. Fantastic hotel with elegant yet modern designs.
Stayed here on 08/02/2015. Very nice restaurant, Breakfast and room.

London heliport is next door which is not noisy from your room.

We stayed as a family of three. The standard room was very comfortable. The TV was of a good size and had a wide range of channels including sky sports. The bed was king size and comfortable. We had a view of the heliport and part of the Thames. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar had great views and the food and drink was of a good standard and a price you would expect of a hotel. There was plenty on offer at breakfast and there was plenty of seating. That's all the good points. The negative points are that it is a 10 minute walk from Clapham Junction station and the walk to the hotel takes you via some slightly run down residential and commercial areas. There are two ways to reach the hotel from the station my advice would be to go via Falcon Street as the lighting is better. The hotel runs a shuttle but only one way to Sloane Square. They have a six seater but would be better of with a mini bus picking up and taking guests to and from Sloane Square and Clapham junction. I understand the shuttle is booked quickly especially at peak morning times. Only a slight negative but a shuttle to station would encourage more people to stay here. Only other thing I would say is we paid a rate which was an introductory rate as the hotel had only been rebranded. I saw rates advertised as much as £200-£300 which would be too much for this hotel. But the rate paid was excellent value

Arrived mid afternoon on Wednesday and went swiftly thru check in with no probs, car valeted to the car park and all luggage brought in and taken to our room and put away for us. The room overlooked the river and heli port which was the best ever. The room well appointed, huge, the bed sooo comfy, the bathroom , shower and all super duper including a tv whilst bathing, so decadent. All the usual teas/coffees chocs etc and big fluffy robes and slippers. Being in Club class this allowed us to have access to a lounge with unlimited soft drinks thru out the day, biscuits and fruit, which was excellent especially overlooking the river and watching the helicopters land and go. The spa down in the bowels of this elegant friendly happy place is beautiful. It may be petite but wonderful all the same. The hot ceramic beds to lie on is relaxing, the sauna, steam rooms etc well equipped and perfect. The pool with its stretch out area at the rear of the pool is fun as is the chair to sit in and have bubbles surrounding you and the jets in the hydro section is fab. Not a swim pool but one can strech out and float and relax. The spa treatments looked good and well priced. The ladies changing room is really lovely and very well equipped along with jugs of chilled water and citrus water, fruit etc. Lunch in the terrace bar is excellent and in the evening with the complimentary wines, beers spirits and canapes gallore etc as a club member is superb. Thankyou so very delicious. Dinner looked really good and the menu varied to cater for all tastes, but we were eating out. Breakfast in the morning after an excellent sleep in a room that was not to hot( us the aircon properly and no problem). Everything you needed was there for breakfast and the haddock and poached eggs heaveny. Husband enjoyed the English breakfast both mornings and the fruits and yoghurt delicious. Coffee very good too, and the service by all the friendly staff both in the bar and resturant along with front of house staff are friendly, polite, very helpful and have all been trained to a very high degree. Thank you for your courtesy and kindness one and all. I went on a baking course with Eric Lanlard in his petite cookery schoool a ten minute walk along the river for Wednedsay where I made some wonderful cakes and learnt lots of tips and things. We showed a few of the front of house staff my results on our leaving day as they were interested to see the results and were amazed at the results, it was so nice that they really were wanting to see and remembered what I was doing. Thank you I honestly cannot find any fault with the hotel, food, ambience, people or anything, everyone and everything made our short stay so memorable and this is only done because those working there seemed to want to be there which shows in how all interact with one and all. Keep it up, by far one of the best places I have stayed in and I travel quite a lot. Thank you
