              Lovely hotel rooms are very comfortable and much bigger than they appear in the photographs. Roof top terrace has amazing views and fab hot tub!!

              Drinks at the bar are expensive.

              Very nice and quirky room, comfy bed and bedding.

              Very noisy. Walls paper thin, and could hear conversations and more from rooms on either side and above (Room 37) Air conditioning didn't manage to make the room comfortable, which had been pointed out by others on trip advisor. Receptionist didn't appear interested that I wasn't happy with room. 2 glasses of Pinot Grigio wine £17.00, car parking £25

              Loved the fact we got a complimentary upgrade from the hotel, that was a lovely treat!

              I did not like the fact that there was very little in 'welcoming' you to Great John Street hotel and not enough explanation from front desk, regards to what they were doing with your bank card i.e the first hold or payment they charge you and then again on the departure of the hotel, why they then take another swipe of your card.

              the bathroom was amazing

              a real shame non guest can come for a drink in hotel bar after 11.which doesnt really work if been out for dinner

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              The hotel is a romantic venue, and is well prepared for that. The hot tub is a great idea, but does need to be cleaned.

              Based on the price of the hotel, breakfast should be included. It is a bit of a cheek to ask for £30 ish on top. We also felt that the bathroom soaps etc were a little lightweight.

            • Single
              7.8

              Staff was excellent, friendly and very helpful (except those in charge of breakfast). The place has been refurbished in a tasteful and imaginative fashion - good mix of old and new. Very convenient and central location - quiet.

              The bar sitting area, restaurant and breakfast rooms are very dark and somewhat oppressive. Attention to detail was sligthly lacking; eg the hifi system in the room was falling apart, one bedside light was not working, the window had been left open and the room was cold....It would be good to have a cafetiere in the room (rather than instant coffee).

              It was ok but not worth the money

              Roof terrace had private function so could not use it. Did get notified 48 hrs before but could not cancel because could not get another hotel.

              4.2

              When it was time to leave....all the power cuts,Brown cold tap,shower & bath water,abusive members of staff!!!!!!!!!! Staff unhelpful,rude & arrogant.That I could walk away laughing instead of crying apart from my girlfriend who was crying due to the rude unhelpful staff when recieving upto 4 powercuts and no water...... if you want to abused made to feel like a child & have the worst night of your life then please book...but it wont be a nice experience!!!!!

              The feeling of sadness,wasted travel,wasted day....depression,trauma & the feeling of being violated....& too see my girlfriend i was due to propose to so sad,hurt & upset by the treatment of the rude senior manager that was no help at all but very aggressive when asking to be re-located or refunded due to five powercuts which lasted up to 6 hours,told not to shower or change to get ready for a romantic evening due to the hotels terrible water system that gave us cold brown mucky water my dog would never bathe in!!!!! offered a complimentry drink due to the situation then charged which was a complete joke of the matter & a kick in the teeth.....

              Location, services and staff great

              Rooms are definelty wort the money but did feel the breafast was way to expensive for standard English £16 each !

            • Couple
              9.2

              Unfortunately charged £6.50 service charge for them bringing a bottle of champagne to our room even though we went to the bar to order. Small thing, but things like that should be free!

            • Couple
              7.4

              We like the set up of the room which is differ from other normal hotels!

              The location is not really perfect and a bit pricy when compare with other hotels.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Good location, great stylish hotel that is different from your standard impersonal hotel chain. Very comfortable and loved the Temple Spa toiletries.

              Although the room was gorgeous it smelt a little musty. It was also quite noisy as we could hear other guests very clearly. Charging £10 for WiFi access was disappointing.

            • Single
              7.8

              Well designed room and hotel made a business trip a pleasure

              The lift was undergoing an upgrade and my room was on the top floor. The check in member of staff sent me off to find my own way to my room because the lift was unavailable and it was too much effort for her to climb up the stairs. If it was too much effort for her to climb the stairs then to wave a guest off up the stairs with luggage and a minimal apology for the the lift is not great service.

            • Single
              9.6

              It felt like home from home, very comfortable, intimate and lots of personal touches. Staff were wonderful, especially when I got lost on the way and arrived v late.
