The ferry trip over the Thames from Canary Wharf makes it sound like is not very accessible, but its a short and regular hop, and something a bit different - certainly a lot quiter than some other locations. Room was comfy (if they'd fixed faulty air con in my room when asked would have probably rated more highly) and pretty good. Service for dinner was prompt and friendly, and dinner was tasty and enjoyable. You can sit out and watch the ferries on the Thames which is nice in warmer weather. Breakfast was busy (big hotel) but again prompt service and wide selection - minor niggle was that cooked breakfast wasn't quite to my taste - black pudding wasn't the best, bacon was a bit a-la-beef-jerky, but might just be me. The lack of responsiveness to my air-con and missing TV control (2 attempts to get someone to come and fix but to no avail) was a bugbear, but haven't overly penalised on rating, but something to be aware of.
