We had a fantastic stay here for our anniversary weekend, situated right on the river the views are beautiful and St Katherine's dock is filled with bars and restaurants. 5 mins walk to Tower Hill station so easy and quick to get around. Staff were friendly and efficient despite this being s large and bush hotel. Room was clean and well decorated with a lovely hot powerful shower. We would definitely stsy here again.

great location

location, staff, location
It was excellent, great staff and amazing location. My only fault was the size of my room, it was a little cramped. If I was to stay in London again it would be my first choice, just a bigger room.

Dont judge a book by its cover!

Location, Staff, Room size
From the outside it looks dated and not particularly welcoming but once inside its a whole different matter. The place was very clean and tidy, staff very helpful and the rooms very nice. It is in a lovely location and has a good feel about it. It is very big though (I think about 800 rooms) and therefore can be rather busy in reception at times - we were queuing for quite a while to check in and other people were jumping the queue and the staff were not paying enough attention to notice. There are a few restaurants in the marina area to the rear if you want alternative eating which is cheaper as well.

Head for Tower Bridge. Drive towards Tower Bridge as if crossing to the south of the river, straight over the first set of lights and do a U-turn at 2nd set of lights. After the traffic light controlled junction, turn left immediately into St Katherine's Way and The Tower is at the end.
