I was happy with POWP. I had a room to myself though; there is a chance you will be allocated a shared room. My obs said that RHW was fine as well, and as a private patient you would definitely be given a room to yourself. RHW is apparently recommended for 1st time mums cos there are more midwives around. On the other hand, I heard that it is noisier, and the food isn't as good - I can't vouch for the accuracy of these aspects. I went with POWP cos if I ended up needing the special care facilities at RHW or SCH (thankfully not) they would be v close by.
