  • 8.0.Very Good

    Great location in North Greenwich. These are unique nautical-themed rooms in a historic building but visitors should be fully aware that this is not a hotel per se but rather an inn with rooms attached to a restaurant/pub. This means limited check-in hours, no front desk, and sound traveling from the restaurant. I knew that in advance and was fine will all of the above, enjoying the experience.

    Today, Abi, God wants you to know that when you do the right thing, it will feel good in your body. Your body never lies. When you feel stress in your body, something is out of balance in your life. Restore the balance, and your body and spirit will reflect the rightness of your choice.

    Great hotel close to the O2

    The Pilot is a great place to stay if you are seeing a show as it’s walking distance to the O2. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and when you add the pub and restaurant it makes it a perfect location to either sit outside and have drinks before and after a show. The free parking and inclusive breakfast are also great benefits.

    A good stay

    Great location. Good historical hotel with a good range of beers, real ales, wines & spirits on offer. Good quality food. A quirky themed hotel with comfy rooms and a great breakfast included in the price. Only disappointment was the repair works being done on the building.

    Just perfect!

    Perfect spot for a Greenwich break. We stayed whilst visiting family in the area and it was just great. Parking was easy and included in the price, which is a bonus in the local area.

    Our stay was lovely, the Hotel Is in an amazing location, the staff super helpful and the breakfast was spot on. Even the ginger cat was funny. The only downfall was the bed supplied for our son was only a cot bed, but we was told in an email prior to arrival, maybe a camp bed for toddlers could be supplied. And the noise from the pub was loud, but if you are staying after a show or concert you'd more than likely get involved or be back after last orders, but with a 3 year old it was a tad loud. But we knew it was above a pub so they can't be blamed. All in all we will dedo be back and maybe ditch the kid and get boozing
