Disliked: Room comfort
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was small and hard. We left lots of goods for my mom who took over our room when we left the hotel and the cleaners “stole” all the goods. By the time my mom checked in, the goods were all missing including the cool drinks in the fridge.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and found the rooms comfortable and the staff very helpful. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the V&A so in a great location. Nice bar area and breakfast was plentiful.
