We were attending an event at the O2 and so we needed to stay locally as we live by the coast.
The sat nav took us to the address and we entered the secured car park and made our way to the reception.
The reception was manned by a flamboyant but friendly and efficient member of staff who quickly checked us in and made us welcome.
The third floor room was adequate in size and clean,although the mattress was a bit springy for our tastes and was approaching it's sell by date I think.
The receptionist called shortly after we arrived in the room to check all was OK and later helped us with a taxi to the venue as well as serving us drinks before we departed.
The breakfast was adequate although the scrambled egg was not to our taste but everything else was fine.
All in all I would say that the hotel is fine for a short stay and the staff we met were in the main very good.
