Upon arriving the lift is a little complicated & hard to hear the receptionist in order to actually get onboard. Check in from 3pm so we sat in the restaurant we had 2 G&T’s, 2 pints of Peroni and 1 portion of squid off the ‘bar snacks’ menu. In total it came to £60 odd so we would NEVER get drinks or eat on board again. However once we got into our room the views were incredible and the rooms were immaculate, big & absolutely lovely and worth the money. Location is great to get the O2, we caught the cable car a cross (took 10mins) and got an Uber back later *note that the Uber / taxi won’t be able to get you directly to the hotel door. The only reason I didn’t give a 5* was due to the cost of the food & drinks and the fact the cleaner opened our bedroom door at around 9am and woke us up after we’d had a late night at the O2 so wasn’t overly impressed with that given that check out isn’t until 11am.

The rooms/cabins are great ..big and comfortable and reasonably priced (at least when we were there) but prepare to take out a mortgage if you want to eat or drink onboard. (I suppose there must be a lot of guests on expenses who don't quibble at those prices) As it was we went ashore to eat. Had the food been more reasonably priced we would have stayed on board.

If your disabled think twice before staying here. To be frank no compassion it’s not a disabled friendly hotel. Taxis couldn’t access the the hotel barrier it was a nightmare! Broke intercom on the ground so our taxis was couldn’t gain access to pick us up. No thought nor planning for disabled customer. Very disappointed with this treatment , also noticed no children around either very odd! I had to ask for a wheelchair in the end! It wasn’t offered the girl in reception didn’t care! Awful.

i must say myself and my wife had a fantastic stay at the sunborne hotel. straight from the arrival to leaving it was excellent. We had a problem with the room once we got back from a concert just after 11.30pm but it was sorted, we were upgraded to another room without any fuss! i am disabled, althoigh i could not get my mobility scooter into our room i was able to leave it just outside the room and charge it! the corridors were very spacious! breakfast was excellent, the staff were fantastic, my wife was able to have gluten free bread and soya milk! Drinks are expensive but i guess you pay London prices. Overall an excellent stay!
