Very Poor
To be Honest this hotel falls far short of the quality I expect of a Waldorf Astoria Hotel. In fact I would suggest the senior management take a look at everything associated. The rooms are absolutely not worth the money not even if the rate was halved! the room service was abysmal and the food was to put it mildly not even on par with a greasy spoon. Couldn't even keep it hot from kitchen to my room 3 time!!!!! and sending me two electric heaters which in a huge room does about as much use as a chocolate teapot. AVOID and stay in a budget hotel as it will be better quality.
Everything about the stay was abysmal and in no way indicative of the rest of the waldorf brand as we stay in many all over the world. If I was the area manager or indeed a senior exec I would be ashamed to have it in the portfolio in the state it is in. Staff were ok, not as nice and approachable as others in the chain but pleasant. Doorman was the only plus. AVOID and stay elsewhere.

Staff very helpful large rooms which we found to be cold The fan air heating battles hard to keep the room warm and it very noisy. I would not choose to stay here again in the winter much better I would think in the summer
Cold corridor cold room and stone floors in the bathroom with no underfloor heating not great in the British Winter

Heating did not work in the room so we were given a plug in heater. Breakfast was way to expensive at £25 a head for hot and £12.50 a head for cold.

Great location.
For the room which I booked for the night very disappointed with the comfort of the bed and the shower did not work. Overpriced for the size of the room and the comforts offered
