Stayed for one night. Lovely room. Helpful staff. Told restaurant was fully booked from 530pm to 930pm on a Sunday evening so Reception kindly offered to reserve a table at 9pm as my Birthday treat was reason for our stay. So we had bar snacks and drinks at 5pm to keep us going until late dinner reservation, but when arrived at 9pm no table had been booked as promised & too late to go elsewhere! Yet the waitress on duty Nadige very quickly sorted out a table for 2 and took our order plus arranged for our breakfast in bed request to be placed. If not for her prompt and excellent customer service our stay would of been ruined with no dinner but she saved the day and we thank her for that as very impressed she quickly sorted it out for us. The restaurant was half empty anyways. Food expensive but vwry good. Overall a unique venue and experience.

It was an impressive sight to see the Sunborn Yacht from the cable car, a short 5 minute walk. We checked in and made our way to our cabin…. Very nice. We then made our way to the aft deck to have a drink, drinks and snacks were ordered. When our drinks and food came we had to ask the waiter for some napkins as the ‘wings’ were going to be messy, my wife had to get a side plate herself for the eaten ones, next time bring them with the food. When the evening came we were eating in the ‘Lands End’ restaurant but before we thought we’d drink in the sundown bar once again, our drinks were ordered, table service due to Covid, drinks ordered waited and waited… hello where’s our drinks…. Ooops still on the bar. Come on guys you need to raise your game! That said our meal in the Lands End was wonderful, service a little erratic. Hence the low rating I have given to a wonderful Yacht in an impressive location.

Arriving in the lift and entering into a beautifully lit reception was a great start to overnight stay. Checked in easily and proceeded to lift to go down to my room. Room was on lower level but was big and spacious with a couch and a huge bed which had lovely white crisp bedding. Bathroom very tidy and had toiletries and fluffy towels. Coffee machine in room was good but quite noisy if you decide to have a drink in the early hours. Only a small tray with 3 coffee pods, some teabags, sugar and 4 milk pods. Glad i was solo person as this wouldn’t have lasted long. No bottled water in room which was a surprise. Decided to go up to the bar for a snack about 9, member of staff gave me a menu and i sat down at table and they said they would be back to get my order. After 10 minutes of noone coming for order i just went back to room, bar was not busy there were only 6 other tables with people at them, couldn’t understand noone coming back for order. Anyway reasonable night’s sleep, up showered, breakfast 8. Staff member very helpful showed me to table explained menu and buffet style juice, beverages, toast etc. Breakfast came and looked lovely but not sure what kind of fat/oil hash browns and sausages had been cooked in but they had a funny taste. Beans were cold. Didn’t complain as i was one of the first in for breakfast and it hopefully was just a blip. Checked out which was easy.

I booked this for mine and my husbands 30th birthday after a day of activities in London. We loved the food, the room and the cocktails! Our trip was made extra special by the kindness of a barman called Joshua who was very attentive and made the nicest cocktails I’ve ever had!!!! Thank you Joshua and I hope you get the recognition you deserve. The views of the city are stunning and the beds comfortable! Would come again and would lobe to try the afternoon tea!

We arrived an hour earlier to check in, our room was ready, luckily for us. The rooms are lovely, lots of polished wood and large. The bar gas a small terrace to sit on, it was sunny and so we spent an hour or so here. You can see the O2 and emirates cable cars in the distance. Friendly, helpful staff. We had tea & coffee in the room and a Lavazza coffee machine which made really tasty coffee. TV worked well and we heard no noise whatsoever all night. Comfortable huge bed. The reception is really stunning with a big chandelier and stairs going up to the restaurant area. Breakfast is served from 8am on a sunday and there is a notice saying to get there before 9am or it gets busy. We got to breakfast at 8.45am it was quiet for 10 minutes then there were queues constantly and still queues when we exited. There is a full cooked breakfast which was tasty. Coffee, tea, toast, juices that are self service. We loved our stay and will come again.
