‘City view’ it said, when I booked the hotel. Indeed. We could just about see some of the landmark London buildings but only when the eye travelled past the glaringly obvious sight of Waterloo Station. If our son had been six again and fond of choo-choos then this would be kiddie heaven. Pretty cool at night though.
Amazingly the double-glazing was so thick that we couldn’t hear a thing from our room on the 12th floor. The positives of the Park Plaza County Hall hotel definitely outweighed the negatives. Very much a family friendly hotel, most rooms, like ours, had a lounge area with sofa bed and a kitchenette with microwave and coffee machine. Not sure why there were scales in the bathroom. The last thing you want to be doing on holiday is getting hung up about the effect of those extra croissants you managed to secrete into a napkin at breakfast.
