My husband and I needed to be in London for work at short notice We needed to drive so specifically called the hotel to ask about parking.
We were told there was street car parking so we decided to book.
On arrival we found max stay was 2 hours, at a price of £4. When we asked the hotel about the parking situation again, they advised to keep putting a new £4 ticket in the car every 2 hours throughout the day, we were staying for three days!!
This really should be specified on the website or up-front when we called, as we wouldn't have booked the hotel. In the end we had to arrange for the car to be parked in a secure car park elsewhere which was a such inconvenience.
Our room was small, very basic, really hot, and had a really bad smell (as described by another guest in a previous review). The walls were paper thin so we spent the first night being forced to listen to the couple next door who were particularly loud throughout the night (not ideal when travelling for work).
The hotel is not manned as far as we could tell, out of hours so when we needed 1) an ironing board 2) extra pillows (they were especially poor) there was no option of getting these until the next day.
Another annoyance, there was also no do not disturb sign and the housekeepers are extremely keen to get into your room. On the final day the check out time was 11:00 I was getting a knock at the door every 10 mins from housekeeping so they could get in and clean, which again when your trying to get work done wasn't great.
The price for London was quite good, however I'd not stay here again.
