From the outside, a very impressive-looking hotel conveniently situated a short walk from 2 tube stations. The lobby and bar areas were very nice. The double room was small and basic, with tired and dated furniture and fittings, but it was clean. The dining area was, again, a bit tired and in need of a lick of paint. The breakfast was adequate - choice of cereals, fruit, toast, fruit juices and hot drinks. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. If you're just looking for a clean room for the night with no frills, this is ideal. If you're looking for a bit of luxury, look elsewhere.
