If you've got a car, you would be best off booking at a different hotel. Expensive overnight parking in the NCP. Difficult to get to in the one way system.

Hotel itself is centrally located.
Friendly staff
Got an OK room rate for the location, but with extras and location I would go elsewhere next time
Expensive breakfast with plenty of choice outside the hotel that offers better value.
Room OK, although was a disabled room with all the associated furniture and handles in the bathroom - I didn't request this.

Its a chain; you know what you're getting. Breakfast was included in the rate but i'd suggest booking room only. It's quite chaotic as its in the bar, and breakfast items are laid out in seemingly random locations. The food itself was average at best. Its a convenient location and I had a good rate- best feature is that its opposite the Glassboat brasserie so even in poor weather only about 10 paces away!

The room was fine though the TV had a speaker in the bathroom that didn't work - it made an annoying noise. I had particularly wanted a hotel with breakfast and I was careful to check that this was included when I booked with TripAdvisor. However, when I arrived at the hotel it turned out that breakfast wasn't in the package. I could have found a cheaper and more geographically convenient hotel had I known. The hotel staff said that this happened frequently with booking sites.

Room Tip: Book direct with the hotel to make sure you get what you paid for.

We picked this hotel for a Saturday night stay mainly for its location within walking distance of a gig at the O2 Academy (approx 8 minutes walk) and nearby parking (hotel offers a discount at the NCP behind the hotel on Queen Caroline St). For the price paid we were expecting a good standard.

Room was generally fine with a very comfortable bed, fridge and modern TV. Several things not working: a/c, TV in bathroom (a bit gimmicky anyway), and carpeting and chairs had dirty marks on them. If we hadn't had such a rushed 1-night stay, I would have brought this to the hotel's attention and asked for a different room. The part of the room around the bed and the corridor seemed to have been refurbed, but the guestroom bathrooms are old and tired, as well as some of the public areas.

Breakfast was very busy, and we were lucky to get the last free table in the restaurant. Cooked to order items are available but we didn't want to risk a long wait so just used the buffet which was just average. The glass boat restaurant across the road looked good but alas not open on the Sunday morning we were there.

Regarding the hotel itself, we are indeed due a refurbishment, which we are hoping to plan for the beginning of next year.
