A colleague and I stayed here for two nights for a course. It was close to the course venue and by far the cheapest hotel in the area.
We booked a twin, but were pleasantly surprised to be asked if we would like singles for the same price. The rooms are basic - bed, sink, desk, wardrobe, tv, tea & coffee making facilities - but everything was clean and neat. Beds were made each day and towels changed, which was a nice touch.
The communal bathrooms were clean, and although the toilets could have done with a more frequent cleaning, they were not rank.
Breakfast was plentiful and self service.
All in all, what more could you ask for, for somewhere to lay your head?

Having read several not to flattering reviews of the county hotel I was a bit wary when booking, but there was football to watch and the tube strike made it impossible to return home the same night. The reception was clean and spacious the check in was efficient and easy. the twin room with shared bath was clean warm and exactly what you need for one night. We returned after the game and the porter was pleasant and gave us our key with minimal fuss. we had a decent nights sleep and the complimentary breakfast was warm and tasty. I cannot understand some of the complaints on this site about this hotel. my experience was positive and for £66 for a twin room with breakfast in the centre of the most expensive city out there was a bargain.

Room Tip: the higher the better for traffic noise

The first thing I noticed was the smell, it is in need of a refurbishment, while the bed linen was clean the beds were like camp beds. There were 3 beds in our small room and there were only 2 of us. We had to climb over one bed to get to the hand basin. A good lick of paint is needed throughout. Piles of used laundry left in hall ways and in huge cages just outside the dining room. Housing Keeping woke us up at 8.15am. Breakfast was ok and the staff were quite friendly.

It crosses the wrong side of the budget vs cheap and nasty line occasionally - rooms tiny, scruffy, sometimes dirty, very noisy. Shared bathrooms. No heat or ac in some rooms and if you try and open the window it's really really noisy from the traffic. Small tv in rooms functional wifi in reception area. Breakfast acceptable. BUT it's central London and the cost is £52.....difficult to argue with that!
