I use this Hotel all the time but feel it has really gone down hill. Room was very tired looking and the food in Restaurant really poor. Both breakfasts were stone cold, plates cold, no butter, no sauces which I feel is very inadequate for such a large Hotel.

Far from great

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Anonymous Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

- Long check in / check out time - didn't receive the booked room at first - was charged an additional night despite the original book was only two night - no joy when calling the hotel - so far no reply on emails Overall far from a great stay. Not what I expect from a Luxury brand hotel

Needs some professionalism

Spencer Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

The reception counter is crowded but there is no attention nor matter of logic. Check-in as member, no attention, no drink coupon. I was so fedup I didn't even bother. This room was Ilse the least clean I have had of all stays in the hotel. Bad luck? Black spots on the carpet etc...

Ageing, needs improvement

I was their for a Conference for 3 nights and I must say that they are not equipped to cope in terms of HR, though it is a big hotel. One doesn't get a comfortable feeling overall.

Poor stay

Mg Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

I arrived for a 2 night stay for business and was put into a uncleaned room which was dusty, rotten food on the floor. The heating was not work so was given a radiator after 2 hours very poor. They didn’t move my room to my disgust, the hotel was recommended to me as I travel very regularly with the company and it’s on our preferred supplier list. I was do disappointed with the service the following day when I asked for the room to be cleaned or changed I was told nothing was reported. I will not return to the chain unless my trust and confidence is restored.

Hotel is fine - but service isn't up to scratch

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Garrya Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

2 night stay. Check in process is too long and tedious - if you are going to have people on reception have them servicing the check-in queue rather than talking on the phone. I wanted to charge drinks to my room but was told I hadn't added any credit to my account. During all the time at check in (for a pre-paid booking) where I had to show ID and the payment card there was no mention of the need to open room credit.....Its all just a bit poor. Check out was equally slow? Why do I have to ask for a paper copy of my receipt? You have me email on the booking - why not confirm at check in that you'll email my receipt so all I need to do at check out is drop my room key. Why do you inisit on making me stand around reception....

On the first night if the stay there was a party running to 1am on the floor immediately beneath us with music so loud that you could hear all the words of the songs. Apparently the receptionist was supposed to inform us at check in but the did not happen. Shockingly bad service.

Room not as requested and no one willing to help

C. R. Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

Booked a family room I called and requested two adjoining rooms and a camp bed plus a double bed in one of the rooms as have three small children I was told perfect all booked after paying more for the stay. We arrive and are allocated two rooms not next to each other and no extra bed. They have now updated the T&Cs to say rooms may not be next to each other which totally defeats the point of offering family rooms I have been advised. No one helped, reception do not answer the phone and the hotel phone number not answered either. Not family friendly at all unfortunately.

Check in was very bad. Slow, asked to wait 30 mins for room to be ready, then check in took 20 mins only to be given wrong room. That took another 30 mins to rectify. Only one or two people on reception knew what to do. Long queue. Everything else was good.

Good location, couple of issues

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Kyra Friends - Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent location for Hammersmith Apollo, close to the underground stations too. Warm welcome, lovely room with nice touches; we had a lovely view, too. Great little collection of toiletries in the bathroom. But a few issues were noticed. On arrival to our floor there was dirty crockery with a partially eaten meal (we arrived approx an hour after earliest check-in time). It was still there when we checked out the next day. We had visited the Apollo and wanted room service on our return, as we'd not had chance to eat earlier. It was late at night, but it was claimed there was a 24hr service. First of all, our room phone didn't work. My friend went to the front desk to report the issue and ask to place an order. They refused to do this, but did send an engineer up with my friend to change the phone. My friend then tried to call room service. No reply, the phone just kept ringing. Both my friend and I kept trying for almost an hour, but only getting either an engaged tone (presumably others trying too), or just ringing and ringing with no answer. By the time we gave up it was past midnight; we were tired out and so went to bed hungry and disappointed. Our experience meant we weren't inclined to stay at the hotel for breakfast, but rather check-out and go elsewhere. It was a shame, as the room was really lovely and we'd very much been looking forward to our stay.

Superior rooms are BASIC

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Sue Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

OK stay. Staff in person are nice and efficient although I Could not get through to the hotel at all before the stay. The superior rooms are really basic. The beds were good and they had put in modern headboards in a very old fashioned room with artex on the walls and ceilings which had just had a paint. The carpets were filthy (they had been hoovered) with years of old stains and were very worn. For nearly £400 for two nights, this is not acceptable. I would recommend anyone going to a superior room to take slippers with them....

Nice location, reception renovated and very nice, but rooms are a bit outdated and the service was poor (no baby cot on arrival, not after the end of the day after asking reception, one day of no cleaning...).

A very quiet bedroom with triple glazing, spacious and clean. Bath wouldnt' empty and very narrow with no grab rails. Rock hard bed and pillows so didn't sleep well. Bar quite nice. Didn't eat here so cannot comment. Staff efficient and friendly.

We chose this hotel as it was hosting a convention so it would be convenient for us. Our first problem was when we arrived. We had paid for parking in our booking. We have a van and a few days before our check-in we called the hotel to ask if there were any height restrictions as if there were we would come by train. We were told there weren't any but when we arrived we weren't able to park as there definitely was a height barrier! However the gentleman on reception was helpful and as there were no coaches due he arranged for us to park there. Those answering the phone need to know the answers to questions like this. Had the hotel been busy with coaches we would have had a serious problem. The room was ok, a little tired for a 4 star hotel. We had a cup of tea from the hospitality tray and when I got to the end of the drink there was a sludge in the bottom of the mug which was rather unpleasant. Water leaked from the shower (which was in a bath) over the bathroom floor. Breakfast was adequate but not the best. The fried eggs didn't look fully cooked and the scambled eggs and hash browns were cold (this wasn't a late breakfast either) The bar area was attractive however we were very disappointed that no last orders were announced, the bar staff literally just switched the lights off at midnight. The bar was extremely busy at that point (at least 100 people were there). We could not believe that a large hotel in London would not continue to serve residents. Despite appeals to the team on reception to continue serving there were no more drinks available. We will be considering a Premier Inn next year for the convention as at least we will get what we expect. Disappointing experience.
