I stayed at the Crystal lodge hotel with my father as we were working in Croydon and as you know there are far more expensive hotels but we wanted a fair price and that's what we got but even more to the point we were made to feel so welcome especially by George he is so hard working and bends...

I booked this hotel primarily because it was cheap and near the train station. I did my usual trick of not reading the reviews until after I'd booked and came very close to cancelling based on what I read on here and late rooms. I'm really glad I didn't. The staff are friendly, the rooms ARE clean (sure there's a...

The writing was on the wall when the proprietor tried to charge me for two rooms. I was travelling alone and always was. Why would I want two rooms? His logic in his broken English was that his computer said two rooms and he believed it! Was I then being accused of being a liar? Had it not been so...

We arrived around 7.30pm the night of our stay, we were met with a parking space right outside of the hotel ,which is always good in Surrey. We then went into reception to be hit with a god awful smell, what it was still remains to be seen. Once we checked in we were charged 3% of our total bill...

“I do not believe there are any good rooms.”

“none terrible”
 of 5 bubbles 593josh, 2 Dec 2015 | Read review
“Room, bedding and furniture in particular, seemed clean. Ground-floor twin-room situated away from any street noise from the busy road at the front, however it backed onto the disused yard area which was initially somewhat of a security concern. The tiny, tiny room would have been intolerable if I had been with a companion. The ever-present television was not best tuned in and there was no mirror. There was an attractive blue-light insect-repellent plug-in which was equally concerning and comforting. The bathroom facilities were very, very poor, including one leaking toilet (of 3 available). Facilities were on the ground and first floor, through reception which suggests that you'd have to complete your dressing in the moist, uncomfortable bathroom surroundings. Two baths but no plugs for the plugholes. Pretty grim, all round.”
