“Awful. Just awful.”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

I`ve been staying in this hotel many times and It is very dirty.
I used to clean in a hotel and after every room was finished, the receptionist took a look to make sure it was good enough for customers and if something was wrong (hair in the shower, a piece of paper on the floor, etc etc) we had to get rid of it.
In this hotel they don`t even check the drawers to see if anyone forgot something. In one room the window is broken so you can`t close it and in some rooms the lamp is not even working.
I checked into one room once and there was the plastic from a tampon on the floor and when i checked into the same room again later, it was still there!
Two of the guys who work there are friendly enough but the third one is very arrogant and don`t even smile to the hotel guests.
The breakfast is crap and I have to buy my own cheese and ham because the only thing they have to put on your toast is jam.

Stayed September 2013, travelled solo

our double room looked clean on first glance however there was some staining on the top duvet cover that looked like blood, on checking the rest of the bed the bottom sheet was creased and had lots of black curly hair . It had not been changed recently.
The bathroom was very dirty the toilet looks like it Never has been cleaned, the shower cubicle was very dirty and the walls inside were mouldy. the flush was loose , however it worked.
the photo's of the hotel are very deceptive, however the staff where very helpul.
The plumbing kept us awake through the night as the water was gushing loudly through the pipes which lead through our room.

When we arrived at the Hollingbury Hotel they couldn't find our booking, even when I produced a receipt and showed the payment on my online banking they still didn't want to give us a room. They wanted us to pay again. Eventually after around 45 minutes we were given a room, which was supposed to be a double, but was quite clearly a single, they was only one cup, one towel etc. The hotel is very scruffy, the lamp in our room was held together with sellotape. The bathroom was no bigger than a cupboard, you would have to climb over the toilet to use the shower and the sink was in the bedroom. It's located in a very dodgy area of London. Not once did they apologise about the booking mix up, the guy at reception didn't have a clue what he was doing. We didn't bother staying for breakfast, and from reading other reviews it wouldn't have been worth staying for anyway. This is by far and away the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! Our bed was infested with bed bugs which we unfortunalty did not find out till the next morning :(.. We were booked in for 2 nights, so decided there was no way we would stay another night. The guy at reception said because we didn't want to be moved to another room that he would not refund our 2nd night stay. He said he would get the owner to contact us but that he would say the same thing. We still haven't heard back from him. Pillow cases were stained, bed spread had cigarette burns in them etc etc.. Defiantly take your business somewhere else and never stay here!!!

Stayed here as write up seemed good described as near to London Attractions and Wembley false in our opinion took an hour and 15 mins to get from Wembley Arena. and as for the so called hotel it was awful the room smelt of smoke yet a huge no smoking sign was on the door, bedding was stained as were the chairs, mold in the bathroom NO HOT WATER for our entire stay, heating on full blast with no way of turning it down remained on all night, massive crack in the ceiling which when it rained meant we had a leak when reporting it to the guy on reception his response was it wont effect the bed so we had to listen to the sound of drip drip drip all night long, loads of storage space however couldn't use the draws as could see through to the floor as bottom was broken I could just go on and on and on,
My suggestion is stay away I will never stay again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Use a different place!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a great stay at Hollingbury hotel, the hotel was in a great location! And the staff was very helpfull.. When we asked what time is the lock out time the guy replied and said you can come back when you wish! He phoned us a cheap local taxi what saved us money!
The rooms was great for the money we stayed in number 10 it had a flat screen tv mounted on the wall a nice clean double bed very simple but great for money, never found any bedbugs that other people has said!
My only concern was the bathroom! They was tiny! But who cares!!
I will definitely stay again!! And if your going with a group of friends get the quad room like some of our friends did! They had some leather arm chairs and coffee table and a double bed and two singles and a decent size bathroom! It was good for chilling out after a long day walking around London!

I would recommend this hotel to anybody wanting value for money!
