Lovely staff, excellent service and location

Staff, accommodation and location
We booked in for two nights and were met by very pleasant and competent front-of-house staff. Our room was nicely appointed, the decor unobtrusive. The hotel is located very near to Shaftesbury Ave and only a few minutes walk to Coventry Garden and Soho. As we ate a late breakfast, we put the overdone sausages down to them having been under the buffet heat too long. Next day was the same and we concluded sausages are cooked in the oven for too long, which was disappointing but we would still recommend The Thistle.
