The cost was considerable ,even allowing for a central London location ,and particularly because of the poor room service meal arranged by the hotel.
The in -room service meal was very poor,in most respects.Slow delivery, amateurish means of delivery( courses in glass jars in flimsy cardboard box and paper carrier bag),missing side dishes and wine, poor presentation ,mediocre quality,cooked course not hot, small size portions ,poor value for money and only cash payment accepted .I do not consider myself to be an unreasonable customer .I am comparing it with much better room service meals I have received elsewhere at hotels with significantly lower total costs ,even in London.
The room was in good clean condition ,well equipped,well furnished,and comfortable.
The hotel similarly appeared clean,well furnished and well maintained.
Reception service was prompt ,if slightly brusque.
