This hotel went above my expectations! From the photos it looked very nice but I didn't realise it had a rooftop bar and restaurant. The room were just as the photos and description, the pool was amazing to relax after a day of walking and very comfortable with chairs and cushions, and the bar and restaurant was an excellent addition. We really enjoyed the dinner specials at really affordable prices and very generous portions! Drink prices were great too, and they even give you a voucher if you consume a main meal at the restaurant 🙂 All staff from reception to the bar were super friendly and attentive, and they really made us feel very comfortable. You can stay at the hotel after check out and use the facilities until you leave, which we really appreciated as our flight was not until 8 pm. Rooms and common areas were super clean, bed was comfy and shower was good. Rooftop had a nice view of the river and main street. Location was good for us as we arrived from the ferry and was a short walk, but it can feel a bit far from the main bits of the Strand if you don't have a car.The only thing I didn't fully enjoy is that the room feels a bit small and since the windows look to the hallway, you need to have the blinds closed if you want to turn the lights on. The bathroom configuration was a bit odd as well with the shower and toilet are completely enclosed. I'd have liked to have a little sofa or something were to sit with a table (that wasn't a desk/chair). However this was a minor detail for us as we didn't spend much time in the room.All in all I'd definitely recommend!

Nice boutique hotel. Clean rooms and very cool having a rooftop bar. The woodfired pizzas are nice and they have cabana by the pool where they will serve you food and drink if you are a guest. The cabanas could do with a bit of a clean as I guess they get wet all the time and the TV in the room didn't work or allow you to cast your own entertainment; staff said they had not all been set up properly.Would stay again. Nice place to relax.

Armati’s is your home for signature wood-fired pizzas, prepared in a scorching hot wood-fired oven that takes center stage in our restaurant. Our pizza artisans work tirelessly to guarantee these thin-crust masterpieces are swiftly fired up and ready to savor within moments. It’s a captivating sight to witness the intense blaze of wood in the oven as the pizzas dance through, rotating at a brisk pace. The outcome? Neapolitan-style pizza perfection – wood-fired, delightfully crisp at the edges, and irresistibly gooey in the center.
