In the eighteenth century when the hotel was built, Greenwich was one of the most powerful places in the world. Now as public interest is drawn here for the new millennium, the hotel provides visitors with an ideal base to visit the famous National Heritage sites. Renovated in 2010, this 51-room air-conditioned city hotel welcomes its guests into a lobby with 24-hour reception service, hotel safe and lift access to the upper floors. Further facilities include a café, bar, restaurant and wireless Internet access. Room and laundry services are also provided.
Beneath the area where the hotel is located lie the remains of the Tudor Palace of Placentia, where Henry VIII was born and Elizabeth I sent Sir Walter Raleigh and the English Navy against the Spanish Armada. Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, the West End of London and Theatreland are only 20 minutes away should guests wish to go further afield. London Heathrow Airport is approximately 55 km and London Gatwick Airport some 60 km away from the establishment.
The bedrooms are all very comfortably appointed and tastefully decorated. Many offer a panorama of Blackheath, looking north towards Greenwich. All rooms are en suite with a shower, bathtub and hairdryer and are centrally heated. Terrestrial and satellite TV, a direct dial telephone, coffee and tea making facilities, hairdryers and radios are standard features in all rooms. Further in-room amenities include Internet access, an iron and ironing board and a double or king-size bed, as well as centrally regulated air conditioning units and a safety deposit box.
