“Great business trip”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

2 weeks of training for week in early May. Venue is great! Food is amazing! A great place to stay, my only beef is they ned to fix the key cards that open the room doors -- many issues with it working.

I attended the hotel for a conference. Had a lovely room and a lovely stay. Had one issue with a bottle being left in y otherwise clean room. Was offered new room and when I declined received a lovely treat.

Very reasonable rate for the quality of this hotel. Dining room is very good. I had a room near an exit door but it was very quiet. Rooms have windows that open which is so nice as it gives you fresh air. I did close and lock them at night but only because I was right on the ground floor level although I don't think personal safety is an issue here. I wish they had better maps for the walking and jogging trails.

We weren't sure about booking this place despite its great reviews. However, our stay this past weekend for two nights was great. Shannon at the front desk as well as all of the other staff were friendly and ready to go out of their way to help us in any way possible. The room, although not large, was extremely clean and everything was up to date. The bed was comfortable and the towels provided were the thickest we have ever received. We will certainly stay there again the next time we are in London and have no hesitation recommending this facility to others.

Stayed again, this time had another kid so the no doubles is tough, then some rooms don't fit a rollaway, I must have booked one. When i was checking in with night audit and asked for a rollaway, he said it wouldn't fit but he would upgrade me for the 2 nights i was there. I enjoyed it. Went to Wine Trail and Niagra Falls, perfect distance away, then enjoyed the downtown London Market that is indoors and has amazing children's theater!

Thanks for another great stay. All staff was super, restaurant breakfast 2 times with 2 different servers and the desk clerks that I chatted up so early in the morning when I was carrying my son around so the wife and daughter could catch some more shut eye.

For a learning institution I cannot say enough about the quality of food, the cleanliness and the incredible service. Really fantastic job done by all. The staff always had a smile
On their face and couldn't do enough for you. Really so impressed.

I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the university (Western). While the room was a bit smaller than I expected, it was clean and very comfortable and the internet was great. I arrived rather late in the evening after a long journey and was greeted by two very hospitable staff members at check-in and quickly was given my room key and directions to the elevator etc. I was offered assistance with my bags. During my 8-night stay, I found the housekeeping and other staff to be absolutely wonderful - so very, very willing to assist with every need. The location of the hotel is lovely and the property peaceful and serene. The entire hotel is very well maintained and parking is plentiful (at no extra charge). For future visits to London, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
