    As a seasoned traveller I have never before stayed at a "hotel" that did not offer such basic amenities as a tv, minibar, room service, hotel bar or even fresh towels daily (hotel policy is to only service the rooms every 3 days) until now. In fairness the hotel is situated close to the docklands light railway making access to the city very easy. Unfortunately the lack of anything hotelish is probably not to everyones satisfaction, unless of course you are a bible carrying american tourist who seemed to be the only other residents.

    Lovely stay. Friendly, calm environment. Will be going back for sure.

    Bells go off at 8am, so might wake you if you're a late riser.

    The breakfast was awesome. The customer service and safety were first class.

    Extraordinary peace and quiet in a busy urban setting.Very good breakfast served. Proximity to station an important feature.Friendly staff.Excellent value for money still although prices had risen from what was on the brochure. Good secure parking facilities. Would and have recommended the Retreat to friends and relations.

    easy to find, access by pass code at night so no waiting for porter to answer bell

    bell going off many times at eight ? a call to prayer, took ages to check out as on duty staff member could not merge the 2 room bills, sorted when someone else turned up

    The peace and tranquility and the beautiful view from my room.

    Overall the hotel is pleasant. However my last vist I had no hot water. The room was very nice but was not maintained sufficiently. There were cobwebs on the light shades and dirt had accumulated by the side of the shower cubicle.

    Very nice and clean and for a low budget :-)

    The accommodation is basic, clean and peaceful. The staff are really helpful. If you need somewhere that's quiet and relaxing close to the heart of London, this is great. I will definitely be staying again.

    Polite personnel, nice atmosphere, close to the station, good rooms and rates, free unlimited wi-fi internet

    Probably location, but anyway, it is the best place in the neighborhood

    An excellent choice for the solo traveller. Its a religious conference centre. So, if you are happy with student halls of residence accommodation, then its fine. The room was clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Its also extremely near Limehouse dlr - a two minute walk. I loved the sense of peace and relaxation here.

    Excellent retreat center. Rooms are clean, staff is smily and professional. Charming to see little squirrels in the parc! I will definitively will recommend my friends and colleagues!

    Convenient (short taxi ride from work venue), good value and comfortable and quiet.

    The wifi had just gone down and technical support was away for a week. This was inconvenient as I did require it. The solution offered was to use a hotel computer wguch solved much of my problem.

    Excellent location - its only 2 min walk to dlr limehouse station and it will take you to Bank in 10 min!

    Water in the building stinks, if youre sensitive to the smell and taste of tap water. Drinking water could be found in the dinning room if needed.

    I hadn't stayed in a Royal Peculiar before and it is a bit like staying a nunnery or monastery - not an unpleasant experience but quite different from the usual 5* hotels. It may not suit everyone but I felt quite comfortable.

    The area is a bit dead and after you have eaten in "The Narrow" which is the local pub you have probably run out of ideas. Nevertheless it is only a short run into the real work via the dlr.

  • Single

    Calm spot only a couple of minutes walk from the DLR station for easy access to the CIty. Good breakfast.
