Gorgeous hotel, poor location, AWFUL parking
Posted Feb 5, 2017
My partner and I stayed in this hotel for just one night. I needed a hotel that wasn't far fro Teddington and my partner wanted a hotel that had a decent fitness centre. The hotel itself was gorgeous inside - the breakfast / lounge area was wonderfully decorated, a very sophisticated/classy environment. We both really enjoyed the breakfast - it was mostly a buffet of cooked breakfast items; there were also cereals, savories and juices to choose from. The fitness centre/ gym was fantastic - it's a "gold's" gym so has every machine you could possibly want, with plenty of machine space, stretching space and free-weights space. In the evening it was very busy; the fitness centre, so the gym and spa, runs on membership access to the general public, as well as hotel guests. The sauna and steam room were also fantastic - very clean. The bedroom was fantastic - king-size beds were plenty big enough for the two of us, lots of storage space and lots of space to walk around. The bathroom was a wet-room but I was disappointed by the cleanliness of it. The shower floor looked like it needed a good scrub, and it wasn't particularly "hot" or "powerful" in terms of the shower water. I was also surprised that we didn't get any shower hats or soaps to use. Beware: parking is AWFUL. The hotel doesn't have its own parking, so you get caught out paying £15 a night to keep your car in a grotty, vandalous area. There was also police tape around the hotel, which doesn't feel you with confidence.
