When visiting London we usually stay at Pestana Chelsea Bridge, but due to the price on this occasion we decided to look at alternatives close by.
Thankfully, we discovered Hotel Verta and booked a one night stay. On arrival we were told that our room wasn't quite ready so to avoid us having to wait we were upgraded to an executive room. The room was absolutely lovely with lots of space and huge bed. The bathroom was stunning - impeccably clean and modern.
The bar area is delightful and watching helicopters coming and going was good entertainment.
We made use of the spa and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hydro-pool is almost 'grotto-like' and very relaxing.
The next day we enjoyed breakfast - very nice but a little expensive overall. We appreciate the buffet mentality of being able to eat as much as you want but as most reasonable people don't see this as a personal challenge to set a new world record on the amount of food that can be consumed at one sitting £32 (inclusive of the 25% guest discount) for two plates of food was a bit excessive.
We checked out and left our luggage at the hotel before making use of the free shuttle to Sloane Square tube station which was an excellent bonus. On our return we were allowed to change before again making use of the shuttle to start our journey home.
Although our stay was very short at just one night, staff were incredibly helpful and courteous. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble, especially for the gentleman on reception.
We will definitely stay at Hotel Verta again and have no reservations in recommending it to anyone that wants to stay at a good quality hotel without paying the earth.
