      Perfect

      Great location and yet for somewhere so central it was very quiet.Good range of restaurants and supermarkets within 10 minutes walk.More space in the apartment and more luxurious than many 4 star hotels we have stayed in

      Breakfast was slightly chaotic and pricing/meal structure not clear.Whilst included in the room package does not represent fair value especially if full room rate is being charged

    • 8.2
      Great

      Excellent location for sight seeing London. Friendly helpfully staff. Large spacious apartment rooms. Very clean tidy freshly painted/ decorated through out.

      Having to pay an extra £10.00 per day for Wi Fi . Overnight on site parking is expensive at £35.00 per night. No dishwasher in the small kitchen. One of the main reasons we choose Dolphine house was that they advertise full disabled facilities, I have a adult daughter who is totally wheelchair bound and was disopointed with the showering facilities. There was plenty of room to get around the apartment and bathrooms in a elchair but the shower was either inside a bath in one room or the other bathroom had a large step into the quite small shower cubicle..

      Perfect

      Lovely room, good breakfast and overall, a great stay

    • 9.6
      Perfect

      Even the economy double room is a good size room, with fridge and microwave. Even for a short stay this is nice to have, particularly as milk, chilled water, tea, crockery are supplied. Very different feel to a hotel which is a bonus. Complimentary use of the gym is an excellent addition.

      £200+ is still a lot for a room used by a single person, even if it is in London and even if it does compare well to other hotels. Breakfast isn't realistic at £14.95! Its just breakfast!

    • 9.2
      Perfect

      I liked the freedom to use the kitchen in the apartment and the friendliness of the staff. The room was spacious and clean.

      Nothing open to eat or have a coffee when I came back in the early afternoon

      Location Friendliness of restaurant staff

      The room size was less of a studio apartment and more of a standard hotel room (in my experience). Welcome could've been more enthusiastic/cheerful

    • 10.0
      Perfect

      We enjoyed every facility from the health and fitness centre, dolphin bar and grill, bedding and pillows, tv's, kitchenette, location near tube, area of London very nice, green spaces, shopping arcade, reception area, friendly staff, safe in room, quality of toiletries, fluffy towels. We loved it all (even the quality fans in room on a very hot day in London).

    • 10.0
      Perfect

      From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable. The suite was beautiful and well maintained. Any requests for extra services (e.g. laundry) were dealt with promptly and carried out to beyond expectations. All the facilities were great.

      A little far to the underground, but a very pleasant, tree lined walk when not raining.

    • 8.8
      Great

      I liked having access to the gym and pool facilities.

      There is no free wireless internet service. How can this be so? Every other accomodation I had was much cheaper and always offered free internet service.

      Guest rating

      1. It has no good ventilation and no air-conditioning. The apartment gets hot easily. 2. The available TV channels are exceptionally few. Though there is a decoder no channels on it are available 3. Though check-in isn't until 3.00 pm, checkout is 11.am and an attempt was made to charge me extra for staying till 12 pm which I resisted. The hotel got to play fair 4. The taxi charge of 65 pounds to Heathrow is the most expensive I have ever seen. I called a cab and paid 30 ponds instead

      Great

      Spacious room. Very clean and very comfortable.

      Bathroom Venetian blind was broken. Toilet made an odd humming sound when flushed.

      Very good

      Good for meeting Family in An Appartment

      Most surprised to be charged for room cleaning as thius was not mentioned when booking. Also after the first night of our stay the room did not apprear to have had any atention apart the making of the beds and emptying of the WasteBaskets !! It appeared to be an additional charge which one should not expect without prior warning ????
