Upon arrival, the hotel front desk person when asking if we needed help with our luggage to our room and I said “no thank you, we are all set” she turned to me and says “I wasn’t asking you, I was asking the lady” Rude.

Hotel under refurbishment...we weren’t advised before arrival. No bar, no proper reception, no toilet to use on arrival! Rooms quite small - even by London standards. Location is good but not a hotel we would return to.
