Best hotel in London!”

We arrived as a treat for my husband‘s 60th birthday, there was champagne on arrival and a room upgrade to a suite. The staff on reception and both restaurants were absolutely amazing, nothing was too much trouble. Given the wider choice of venues in London I wouldn’t choose anywhere else in the future. The communication from the start of the booking right through to the end was perfect. I can’t fault anything about this place and I’m very fussy!

Stylish hotel in fantastic location with great staff”

We had an absolutely amazing time at Sea Containers. A stylish and modern hotel in a great location on the riverside. What really made our stay was the kindness and friendliness of the staff who made us feel so welcome. Joseph Rocky, the Guest Service Manager, was outstanding and a true gentleman! I would thoroughly recommend the hotel and we would definitely stay again in the future. Thank you Sea Containers!

A luxurious & unique stay!”

Absolutely loved staying at The Sea Containers, the decor right from the lobby through to the room was exquisite, I told them that it was for a special occasion and the gentleman at reception gave us complimentary drinks to enjoy at the bar and a room on the highest floor. The views are spectacular especially at night when the whole skyline across the other side of the Thames is lit up. The amenities are plenty too within the room and in the rest of the hotel. I would highly recommend staying here!

Good spot for a stay in central London”

This is a great hotel for a stay in central London. It is well located for easy access into the city. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean and the facilities are all very well kept. The breakfast is also very good - the only thing that let it down was the poor service in the restaurant. Otherwise couldn't fault it.

New year 2020”

The room was nice, we were in a riverview double double. There's a mini bar where your deposit will be deducted in case you drink/ eat anything from it. For lunch/dinner, we suggest to try the hotel restaurant for fine dining. They serve good food and was delicious. The hotel location was along the river Thames but you won't be able to see the New Year Fireworks from the hotel, which was a downside. Overall, a nice stay.

Disappointing Hotel”

I booked three rooms for two nights, arriving at the Hotel on a Saturday. We wen to have dinner at the hotel restuarant at 5:15pm but were told without a booking we would not get in, the thumping music didn’t make it attractive. We returned from dinner at 6:30pm, went to the bar downstairs again told it was full we could try upstairs, we went to the upstairs bar were asked for a booking which we didn’t have, after in remonstrated we were sent to stand at the bar in a 2 meter space whilst the rest of the bar had reserved signs, 30% of the table in the bar were empty, we were told they are all booked, we had two beers and left at 7:30pm with 30% of the tables still empty. This is the first hotel i have experienced that does not cater for in-house guests and does it with extreme arrogance. We will not be back.
