Martin & Dianna have recently refurbished the hotel to a very high standard. The location to transport was less than 10 minutes walk in two locations. A very quiet suburban street. Martin was exceptionally helpful and kind. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Very pleasantly surprised, good location for visiting London's west end etc. Well off for trains and bus travel. We stayed one night for a show, to find a very reasonable price was a bonus as was the welcome from Martin and Diana. Would return.
