3 nights and 4 days at this most convenient location 2 minutes walk from Earl's Court tube station. We took a room on the ground floor at the back of the house, which was very good and nice neutral decor. Size was reasonable, and equipped with all you would expect. There was also use of a safe, although it was loose in the wardrobe and not fitted. Flat screen TV, complimentary chocolates and 2 bottles of mineral water. Very quiet and peaceful so you get a good night's sleep.
Breakfast was included, and this was a buffet style hot and cold food. They were economical with their hot food and strangely kitchen staff would peer into the breakfast room literally every few minutes and replenish food with 1 or 2 extra pieces if anything was lacking, although choice and quantity was not great especially if you arrive later i.e. from 9am onwards. I don't think I would have paid the extra £10 per person if breakfast was not included in the room price - you probably would get a better breakfast elsewhere I would imagine.
On the second evening I told reception the temperature of the shower was tepid and not hot enough, this was never fixed throughout our stay nor any update was provided, which was disappointing. Showering was not a great experience, I got so cold, bath was so narrow and you could only have the shower head a certain angle to avoid spraying all over the bathroom as it had a very short shower screen (you know the type).
All in all fairly good value and if they fixed the shower for me, and if they reviewed breakfast it is a pretty sweet place to stay and I would consider coming here again.
