The building this place is in cannot be faulted. Its really stunning. Imposing and right in the centre of Greenwich so its perfectly situated for everything. The foyer area is a little more conference hotel, and the corridors and rooms are even more so, with extremely startling carpets and decor choices. As a matter of interest one of the fire doors upstairs was actually jammed open and wouldn't close, which is maybe something someone should look into. The breakfast was quite good and very cheery and enthusiastically served, although the Virgin Mary bar would have been better had it had some tomato juice on it. The sausages were also rather too as it happens. More than one coffee machine would be helpful as there was always a queue to get drinks (instructions on how to use it wouldn't go adrift either). It was an ideal place for a weekend break, well priced and well placed. The other gusts were also happy and cheery and there was a good vibe. Not perhaps as froofroo as it looks from outside but nobody else need know that...!
We have just returned after a two night stay . It was a perfect break. Greenwich is a lovely area and this hotel is perfectly placed to ensure we could visit many of the sights on foot - mostly less that a ten minute walk away.
We were very pleased with our room in the eaves on the 4th floor. It was warm and comfortable and had a lovely large bathroom. Although the window was small, we had a lovely sunny view of Greenwich Park with the Royal Observatory in the distance.
Breakfast was very good and we were pleasantly surprised that despite it being peak breakfast time there were no queues for tables or food. The restaurant waiter was great and despite being busy, he actually seemed to enjoy his job and make every guest feel welcome.
The huge bonus for us was that car parking was charged at £10 a day for guests and there seemed to be adaquate spaces.
We will recommend this hotel and hope to return in the near future.
