    Still waiting for my deposit four weeks on

  • Poor
    Mar 2020


    My wife stayed here from the 6th - 8th of March. We were charged for the room in February however, shortly before the stay I amended the booking from my name into my wife's name as our dog was unwell and I could not travel. Upon arriving she was checked in and asked if the room could be changed from a double to a twin as she was with a friend. This was done but upon checking out she was charged again for the room. She raised this with aloft and they have declined to offer a refund even though they ignored the existing booking and booked my wife in as a new guest. Absolutely disgusting way to handle your customers, and the after service we received trying to get reimbursed has been appalling with long delays between responses and an attitude of 'tough shit' from the person we've been dealing with. This wasn't the first time we had used them, but it most definitely will be the last.

    Someone at the hotel charged my card for £1000 and they could not say what it was for and would not refund it. Dishonest inconvenient and frustrating.

    Location was great if you were planning on going to the O2, probably a 15 - 20 minute walk

    They would've all been at the best, however not everything was open which was out of the hotels control, however what we did have was great
