This hotel is the most vile place I have ever had the misfortune of staying. I have just spent a month backpacking around Thailand on a tight budget and I can honeslty say that the Manor Court was worse than anywhere I stayed when I was traveling.
The staff are unfriendly and incompetent. Guests are required to leave their key at the front desk when they leave the hotel, and despite not having been informed of this I was reprimanded like a naughty child for not leaving my key.
Breakfast consists of a pile of bread, some cheap cartons of orange juice and tea making facilities. Only 'served' between the hours of 7.30 and 8.30 it is best avoided.
I can't say enough bad things about the rooms. There are wretch-worthy stains all over the walls, lampshades, carpets and linen. Nothing has been updated for decades. The bathroom smells absolutely disgusting - something which the owners are obviously aware of since they have gone to great efforts to place a cheap can of air freshener in the cell-like en suite. The shower curtain is mouldy, and quite fankly you'd get a more thorough wash by standing outside in the rain with a bottle of shampoo.
The heating doesn't work and so even if you can manage to come to terms with lying under the rancid sheets you still wouldn't get a decent night's sleep as the room is so cold.
Sadly, there are far too many hotels in London like this. Next time I have to find accomodation in Londonl I will stick to the big hotel chains.
