Reviewed 27 April 2012

Sometimes it is only when things go wrong that you can really judge a hotel. This hotel has a reputation for friendly staff and my experience bears this out. A friend asked me to cancel a booking at short notice on his behalf. I did this on the 'phone and then in person. The manager could not have been more professional and courteous. Exemplary.

Stayed April 2012, travelled with friends

We were in the building around the corner although the area leaves a little to be desired the room was fresh, clean and large. Flat screen tv was a bonus and breakfast was fine. The service was great and friendly. I recommend to anyone

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The beds were ancient. There was no en suite bathroom. We had to leave before 7.30 next morning for airport so we got no breakfast! It cost £162.00 for three of us (two rooms)! This was the most expensive awful accomodation we ever had. Would recommend you to find anywhere else if considering this terrible place.

Oh dear........where do I start. Stayed at this hotel because of concert at 02 arena and couldnt book a hotel closer to Greenwich (because of London Marathon next day). Not convenient for transport into and out of Stratford. Not a short walk to the railway/bus station but Route 25 bus stop outside front of hotel for onward access all areas, you would be advised against walking as local area is dodgy and a bit unsavoury. Hotel itself is dated and tacky. We were shown to a little hut in the car park which was surrounded by about 8 or 9 other little huts - think economy Butlin's chalets and you got it. No curtains above door so light poored in making it impossible to sleep. Shower was too hot and uncontrollable, no toiletries but a small bar of coal tar soap. Not able to get BBC1 on the TV all fuzzy, bed v.comfortable, didnt sleep very much at all. Didnt complain as it was only one night but, lesson learned, will definately not be staying here again. On the plus side breakfast included which was reasonably good, although a little rushed to accommodate other people. Hotel tarrif is cheap but you def. get what you pay for.

Stayed April 2009, travelled as a couple

Barely slept due to lack of curtains. We went to reception at 4.30am to ask to change rooms but the alternative room was the same. Spoke to owners at check-out who told us not to come back if we didn't like it there, saying it's Summer so it's light! Customer service was non-existent.
Breakfast was a bun-fight with only 5 tables for more than 30 rooms.
Although the room rate is cheap, there is no point staying somewhere where you can't sleep and where they don't care.

  • Liked — car parking was included
  • Disliked — no curtains over top window so not able to sleep once the sun rose.
