  • Very ordinary, lifted only by the staff.

    by StephenR744 on 2019-06-17 08:51 am

    First disappointment is the hotel is undergoing refurbishment and the front is fully scaffolded meaning that the rooms are effectively blacked out, no view whatsoever and we were not informed at the time of booking.

    Our room was larger enough on the Executive floor but the decor, combined with the effective blackout was quite depressing, also combined with poor lighting and dated decor.

    The "goodies" offering was poor for the standard and price of this hotel, no makeup removal pads, no vanity kit, no cotton buds, I am certain that they could be made available but you should not have to ask!

    The executive floor offering was acceptable but there was no wow factor

    Staff were friendly and helpful but overall verdict could do better!

  • Disappointed.

    We have stayed at the Waldorf on several occasions. The recent four day stay was spoilt by the building work. We paid a lot of money for our stay. This comes with expectations. No person acknowledged the work or apologised. This work is necessary as everything is becoming rather jaded. No reduction in hotel fee. Instead we were were expected to pay for breakfast. The first time ever. The staff in the restaurant were very attentive. The hot food could have been better presented and a customary comment apologising for repeated walking in front of one.

    To cap it all when returning on Sunday evening from dining out we noticed the doorman sitting in the doorway of the local theatre smoking. Not very professional and hardly showing your hotel in a good light. The front desk were advised of this.

    So not a very good stay I am afraid.

    You need to get back to the efficient effective service of delivering what once was an excellent service in a hotel fit for purpose.

    Not value for money at the present time.

  • Still giving 2* service in a 5* building

    by Adam_in_the_UK on 2019-06-15 06:12 am

    This was the second stay for my wife and I. Unfortunately the service was as variable and below standard as ever. The doorman is too busy flirting with any 20 something ladies to help anyone else by opening the doors when it is raining or carry cases up the entrance steps (which are steep and have no ramp option). The reception staff vary and this time check in was great (friendly, efficient and with local knowledge) but other interactions were frustrating (reporting the bathroom lock did not work got a grunt but no repair etc)

    The shell of the building remains a homage to bygone times and is worth a visit but every other part of the stay could be in any 3*-4* Hilton but with less than the usual Hilton welcome or smile. The hotel is "on brand" so lacks the flair and unique style that this venue could so easily deliver with a little extra effort

  • Event

    by Melinz on 2019-06-14 06:33 pm

    First visit to London for an event at the hotel.
    Disappointed to see a construction site upon arrival, however, the lovely Francisco made the welcome very pleasant!!
    The welcome quickly diminished as Upon check in, reception, Olga R automatically assumed I was part of a staff and gave me a room number which had nothing to do with me ... this room was staff packing bags and ironing...when she realized I was an actual 'Guest' of the hotel, she tried to 'back track' but it was a little too late...
    Olga needs to learn from real 5 Star professional Concierge from Rosewood and the Oetker Collection what 5 star service really is ... you should never judge people upon appearance and treat everyone with the same respect. Very disappointed with her ... not great
