Just returned from 2 nights in London - the purpose of the trip was to do the London to Brighton bike ride so we picked this hotel for its proximity to Clapham Common which was our start and finish point. It seemed every second person checking in was doing the ride and had a bike too. The hotel were fine allowing bikes in rooms.
The hotel itself was fine. It's apparently been given a 'fresh new look' but I'm not sure that extends to much more than an extensive lick of paint! The room I had (403) was large and was a family room as it had a king bed, a single bed and another pull out single bed under the double bed.
Room was clean, check-in efficient, hotel is basic but you get what you pay for (which was about £90 for 2 nights for me).
Now for the bad bit, it wasn't that hot outside (only about 20 degrees) but I found the room extremely warm. The windows only open about 2 or 3 inches and during the night I had to have the windows closed owing to the traffic noise so there was no way to cool the room. There is no a/c. It looked like reception provided fans but again that generates too much noise to sleep with. The bed linen was too thick too as it was a quilt. A sheet would have been sufficient so maybe something the hotel should look at providing during summer months?
As far as dining out locally was concerned, there is a pub in the side road directly opposite the hotel called the Anchor. Seemed friendly enough and we went there a couple of times. If you venture further afield then take a left out the hotel and walk 10-15 mins along the main road and you'll hit Battersea High Street. We went to a very good Italian called L'Antipasto which I would recommend.
Overall a sound hotel which served a purpose and I would return to this hotel again no problem at all.
