We visited here for an afternoon tea for a family treat whilst we were staying in London for a mini break. The yacht looked absolutely incredible. The foyer area was breathtaking, a large chandelier surrounded by two spiraling staircases either side. We were ably assisted from the start of our experience and taken to our table overlooking the dock area of the Thames. We didn't have too long to wait for our afternoon tea. The food itself was more than ample, four finger sandwiches and a mini-brioche roll. Two fruit scones and four other cakes complete on a three tiered china tray. We opted for a champagne cocktail option, which was a great accompaniment to the food that was served. We were also given a variety of options for tea, ranging from the usual English breakfast, darjeeling, Earl Grey etc. Our waiter was always on hand to answer our questions and was very passionate about their job. We left there feeling full and satisfied and knowing that when we return to the capital for a break that we will definitely consider staying at the Sunborn Yacht HotelGOOGLE REVIEW

Fantastic hotel. Booked an exec double room with balcony. Bearing in mind it's a yacht the balcony was pretty redundant. The room was clean and the bathroom very nice indeed. Watch the step up into the bathroom...no warnings. Breakfast was included but I'd hate to have to pay £16.50 for a very average offering. The staff were great, even with the more troublesome guests. On the whole the look of the hotel is superb but not sure it quite justifies the price. I'll be returning, but won't be upgrading my room next time as there appears to be very little difference for a much bigger price tag.GOOGLE REVIEW

Simply put I think it’s the best hotel in London. Open and airy with very large rooms. To sit on the stern deck and enjoy an afternoon tea by the water is divine. The staff are so nice and can’t recommend here place enough if you want to be away from the bustle but stay in a cool place.GOOGLE REVIEW

The novelty of being on the boat was great and the bed was really comfy. The room was large and had a nice river view out of the port window. Breakfast was average and priced about the same as most hotels but had quite limited options. Not sure honey on the avo toast is to everyone's taste (perhaps put it on the side). The drinks were also rather pricey (£20 for a pint and a glass of wine with service charge) but sitting on the bar deck with views of London helped compensate the expense. We had a classic river view room and there was a coffee machine and bar but no water or tea/coffee supplies at all in the room. The weather outside was warm and unfortunately in the below deck rooms you have no opening windows and the aircon was more like a fan is it did not generate any cool air. Over night the room was up to 26C which was pretty unbearable and no real support from reception because the hotel was packed due to the event we were attending at the O2 Arena. Hint: If you are attending an event at the O2 Arena make sure you leave plenty of time to use the Emirates cable cars over the river and avoid the queues. Uber and taxis are not a viable/quicker option as you get stuck in traffic that ultimately takes longer than waiting for the cable car. You can tap your contactless card on entry for £4 one way. Its sounds pretty negative but in reality I would love to go back and just do things slightly differently knowing the layout and how things work at the hotel. I would recommend and other than the heat of the room, the service was pretty flawless and its worth a visit.GOOGLE REVIEW

Fabulous place to stay Food was good rooms were beautiful Although we had a bedside light that didn't work and a lot of European plug sockets so take adapters with you. Also it's a bit of a walk with heavy bags but that's the price you pay for where you stay. The only real downside is they charge A 12.5% gratuity on everything and for the love of God if you try to ring them you can't get through. Having said that I will go againGOOGLE REVIEW
