“clean, modern rooms, and great location”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

i stayed here after a concert at the O2, and flew out of london city airport the next day. very handy for both, the airport was an easy 15 minute walk the next morning. the rooms are spotless and brand new, and the pub downstairs has a nice atmosphere- seems to be used by locals as well as residents. didn't eat here, but the food looked pretty good.

Room Tip: they have no lift, so if you have a lot of luggage, maybe ask for a lower room!

The hotel is easy to reach by road and an excellent alternative to staying in one of the big box hotels when visiting Excel.

Staff handled arrival perfectly and were always pleasant.

I spent two nights in a first floor superior room which was large and well-appointed with air conditioning and a comfortable couch and good drawer and wardrobe space. A coffee table would have just finished the requirements. Free parking and WiFi were added bonuses.

I ate one night in the pub lounge which was quite acceptable if not especially exciting. I was hoping for fish & chips but there was an appliance problem in the kitchen. On the 2nd night I ate in the nearby Yi-Ban Chinese restaurant which is easy walking distance.

I would categorise the hotel as a pub with rooms which in no way denigrates it as I found that mix quite acceptable even without a lift but might surprise anyone who hadn’t checked in advance.

The nearest Docklands Light Railway station is only a short walk away so if anyone wants to visit the city centre this still is a good location and much better value for money than most more central hotels.

Very nice and very clean rooms. Hotel also has a pub and a restaurant and has room service

Would have liked more of a warm welcome upon arrival, I also would like to have been told that they had a restaurant as well as the option to eat in the pub ( I had a meal in the premier inn next door as wanted to eat in a restautant rather than the pub) Found this out when I returned from the Premier Inn

Had two lovely poached eggs for breakfast with lovely service

Stayed here whilst at exhibition at ExCel., 5 minutes walk. Had Bedroom 5, a Superior room. It was excellent for space, good size TV and table for late night working. leather sofa very comfortable. Shower room very good, although step down needed getting used to. Ate in the Restaurant, food good, reasonable value for London, just took a while to come because the Bar area was quite busy and food was being ordered there. Discount for residents for food and drink a nice touch. Had a good nghts sleep considering the hotels location near docklands light railway and on flight path to city airport. Would definately stay again.

Stayed at the hotel while in London for business. Arrived quite late to a fairly warm welcome. Bags were carried to the room by a porter.
Room was compact but nicely decorated with a cosy bed, tv and a small shower which was cold unfortunately.
People next door were talking quite loudly which was a shame as the room itself is nice.
No breakfast included and was consequently a little overpriced. The room however did have tea, coffee and a kettle.
Overall a pleasant stay although the hotel location was a bit far out for where I needed to be and I felt quite isolated, walking from the station to the hotel having to eventually grab a cab.

What can I say? This hotel has character in abundance for starters. But also a mix of old and new. We went for a superior room for our recent visit to London. The room was amazing - massive with double bed, triple sofa, bench and seats to eat dinner at and nice bathroom with a powerful shower. As other reviewers have said, it is all very very clean. The staff were very helpful and your room card got you 15% discount at the bar. The room card is a radio swipe key. Even the 'Do not disturb' sign is a switch with an LED on the outside - really Star Trek hi-tech! The Docklands Light Railway is only a 5-10 min walk away which gets you into London in 20 mins. The area itself is very quiet and we slept really well. I can't even tell you the price - it's so reasonable you will fall off your computer chair. No problem driving here if you can navigate through the Blackwall Tunnel if coming from South. The Hotel is right by London City Airport should you get lost.

Room Tip: Superior room if you can.

Just back from a two night stay in this wonderful hotel. This place is a gem. Everything about it was perfect. The staff are great, really friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The room (number 8)was lovely. Bed was lovely and comfy. Everything was spotless. Great powerful shower in bathroom. Tea/coffee making facilities(with mugs, not those tiny cups that i hate). Nice sized flat screen tv on wall. We also got a meal and drinks discount if you produce your room card...best meal ive had in ages:)....We went to a concert in the 02 and the location was perfect. We walked to the cable cars(about 10 mins walk) and got a cable to the other side of the river, right beside the 02. I would highly, recommend this place. Definately 10/10. Well done to the staff and management you are all doing a great job. Hopefullu i will be back again soon. From a very impressed Irish guest. Ruth.
