Why We Love This Hotel

  • Sunborn London, the capital's only yacht hotel, has views of The O2, Canary Wharf and the Emirates Air Line cable car
  • "This is a rather surreal yet intriguing place to stay," says The Times
  • The hotel featured in TV series "The Apprentice"

"The rooms are large and very nicely finished with a big comfortable bed."

The "swanky" (CNN) superyacht was a luxury spa hotel in Finland, before the vessel was refurbished and towed to London's Royal Victoria Dock at a cost of US$67 million. The hotel epitomises "total luxury", according to SquareMeal. 

It has a spiral staircase reminiscent of the Titanic's, a centrepiece chandelier and Art Deco interiors.

You can sample the Afternoon Tea Under the Sea, which includes a selection of sea-themed assorted cupcakes and sandwiches, or hit the third deck and head to the Sundown Bar for a cocktail while watching the sun set over Canary Wharf. The Lands End Restaurant serves British, Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.

The Symphony Spa has two treatment rooms and an outdoor relaxation deck. The rooms -- they're not referred to as cabins -- are "spacious and light" (The Daily Telegraph) and have tablets for ordering room service. Wi-Fi is free.

Yacht Classic Rooms are split between Dockside and Riverside.

There is a constant noise coming from the A/C whether or not you have it on or off in the room. Not particularly a problem until bedtime when it is most definitely an issue.

This is a comment about the cost of the package. We we're disappointed to discover we could have saved over £20 by booking independently via the hotel - always thought Travelzoo offered a good deal but not on this occasion. I could have organised a room for £109 Inc taxes plus breakfast for £19 each.

Breakfast very mediocre basic orange juice, tea stewed in an urn, hot food left to steam. Static electricity in bedroom very disconcerting and windows needed to be cleaned.

Disappointed that we were unable to have a liquer coffee in the bar after dinner. As they were not on the bar menu we were told we could not have one, even though they were available in the restaurant.

Breakfast was good, very high standard of cleanliness.

Found the staff all quite miserable. No one really seem to care about the guests or get involved in conversation. Only one pleasant staff member was at breakfast.
