    Your confirmation cost included V.A.T. however the hotel charged additional V.A.T. We were offered a free upgrade and breakfast but this was more expensive than we had planned to spend and exceeded our budget.

    The location was brillient! I did request for a view of London Bridge and got Canary Whalf which was ok. The hotel is very grand and is very beautiful, the staff were helpful!

    The windows in our bedroom were very high so I had to stand on a chair to look outside, it made me feel although I was on a boat. Room service was brillent although a little on the pricey side. I stayed her with my artner but was only given 1 dressing gown and 1 pair of slippers. Our room did not look at all like the pictures the room was still very nice just nto what I expected.

    I particularly liked the location, close to the Tower and St katherines Dock was quiet and relaxing.

    The room was cold. The window was poorly fitting and the catch was stiff

    I have no complaints at all about the hotel...in actual fact it was fantastic. Great locationWe even got upgraded on booking in and had the most stunning view from our bedroom!! The room was clean...the amenities were spot on!! I will definitely be returning and my friends have also asked for the details of the hotel.

    The room (663) was tired and in need of refurbishment. On informing reception, I was told that the room had recently been refurbished. This was disappointing to hear.

    The whole experiance was a real treat. The room which we were given was wonderful with a wonderful view of the river. We were greeted by friendly and smiley staff who were so helpful. The whole ambiance of the hotel was very pleasing and convenient for doing London Sights.

    A rather crowded breakfast but as i am wheat and gluten free would be nice to see a better selection of breads etc.Although staff did find me some rolls.

    Location

    The decor in the rooms and corridor very tired and worn. Fittings to furniture broken or missing large crack in the barthroom sink. One room the heating didn,t work. The breakfast was nothing special a good job it was on offer at £12 and not £22.50. This was not our first time at the Tower and we have seen the standards slide over the years. The reception area is 5 star standard but the rest is, at best, no more than 3 star.

    Very good hotel central to london sights but far enough away to miss the crowds. First class service and facilities the one negative being that the fridge in the room was not working and screwed up. would have been a help to chill drinks as the room temperature was hot and the air conditioning was not working.
