“A lovely budget hotel ”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband for a break in London. Our 1st mistake was getting to this hotel we made our way on the underground/overground at Wandsworth road but once got there discovered was so much easier on the bus (No 87) around 20-35 minutes to Trafalgar Square depending on traffics or a 5 minute bus ride ( 87/77) from stop right by hotel to vauxhall station where u can take the tube. This bus runs all night so no need to worry whatever time u want to stay in Central london til very easy to get back! when got to the hotel the hotel looks very nice from the outside and when went in there was a strong smell of paint u can tell the place is being refurbished but it no big deal was greeted by very friendly members of staff who told us room was on 1st floor. There is no lift upstairs which not ideal with luggage but only had small cases so was ok between us
However the staff are so friendly sure they would help u if they asked. When got to the room the actually bedroom area
Is quite big we stayed in a standard twin as all doubles were booked the furniture could do with updating but the beds were comfortable and the room was clean which is all u can ask for in a budget room in London. The bathroom was very small and there is only 1 small mirror in there and nowhere else which wasn't ideal for us but we managed for 2
Nights but can Imagine not great if 2 girls were sharing the room getting ready for night out the positive though the shower was great though! They don't provide toiletries apart from hand wash ( but budget hotel so not really a surprise). There is plenty of
Information in the room about travel things to do etc and they Provide free wifi which a great bonus. We didn't get the breakfast voucher but as McDonald's right next door not a problem for a 'non healthy' breakfast :-). Also we found a nice Portuguese restaurant A Toca 5 mins down the road recommend by the reception staff which done lovely food and u get a lot for your
Money so highly recommend going there! Overall would
Defiantly stay at this hotel again for budget stay in London

Dear Valleygirl69,

Many thanks for the time spent to write your glowing review, we really appreciate every review we receive as it helps us to improve our services to our guests.

As you say in your review, we are a budget hotel, and our main aim is to ensure we give each and every one of our guests an enjoyable stay in a clean, comfortable, welcoming and friendly accommodation in London. Although some of our rooms are basic standard rooms, we do have Premium rooms that offer more luxurious surroundings, royally approved beds, tea and coffee and toiletries included – we believe having these different standards of rooms ensures we can cater to everyone looking for accommodation in London. Our team has been trained to guide the guest in the discovery of the city, to address them to the best restaurants in the nearby area and to give all the transport information they require to ensure their visit runs as smoothly as possible.

We are currently undergoing some improvement works within the guest house to ensure we are keeping up with our main focus for our guests, however we are ensuring these works do not disrupt our guests’ stays while they are with us.

If you are coming back to London again, we would love to welcome you back to guest house.

Many Thanks,

Sofia

Stayed here for just one night last weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were lovely and welcoming and had some good information about the public transport in the area. I had mentioned that we were there for a birthday and when we came back to our room late at night they had decorated the room and left a bottle of wine for us. Such a nice surprise (for us both actually) which really made our night. I really had not expected that. Unfortunately I was not able to thank them in person when we checked out early sunday morning so this is my thank you note to all of those who were working over the weekend.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor, room 26. It was very basic but was a decent size and was quiet.

Dear Sezaz B,

Thank you for your lovely review of our guest house.

We are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your time whilst staying with us, and you appreciated the extra surprise prepared for you on your return to the guest house.

It is always a pleasure to know that we are doing our jobs well as we work extremely hard to ensure all our guests have an enjoyable stay whether they are here for a celebration, visiting the nearby central sights of London or on a business trip. Whether it be from small extra touches in the room, to a friendly smile and all the information a traveller could want from our reception team.

We will share your comment with all of the team, who I am sure will feel very proud to know they are doing such a good job.

We hope to see you again soon,

Warm Regards,

Sofia

Stayed here from the 12th until the 14th April, and was simple yet excellent. Staff very knowledgeable and willing to help. Good location, next to mcdonalds if you don't fancy paying the fiver for breakfast. Stayed in a double (not superior), comfortable bed, small but met needs as only needed to sleep in, though the pillows wouldn't't have supported a worm but extras were available in reception. Secure, clean, brilliant staff.

Stayed here for one night. I paid just £35 for a single which was a steal. The staff were very helpful, the location easy to find. For the price I paid, I was very happy. The room was small but perfectly functional with shower and sink (shared toilet was also fine and clean). If you're expecting a high spec hotel you will be seriously disappointed; my room was small, bed was noisy, mattress thin, windows and walls paper thin. But I always travel with earplugs anyway so no real problem with noise and I slep fine on the mattress. The room was clean enough for me but, particularly, the state of the window would be too much for someone who is after spotlessness. i'll certainly stay here again if I can get a similar price.

Dear bps-uk,
Thanks you very much for sharing with us your opinion.
The single room with shared bathroom you have chosen offers a comfortable and basic accommodation for a very good value and our housekeeping team works hard every day to maintain and improve the cleanliness standard. Also, at present we are in the midst of renovating our rooms to improve the customer experience and comfort.
We have rooms to suit all needs, from the basic such as the single room with shared bathroom, chosen by you and the Single En Suite rooms, to the mid-range Standard Double and Twin rooms right through to our Premium Triple, Double or Twin rooms, all of which, we believe, are unbelievable value considering our location, fantastic transport links and more.

Thank you once again and we hope to see you again in the near future.

Warm regards,
Sofia

just stayed for 2 nights here on a quick trip to visit our daughter, hotel is in the process of updating to a high standard, room though small had everything we required, on-suite bathroom very modern, tea and coffee provided, hairdryer etc.The only problem we had was on arrival we were put into the room next to reception, which again was done to a high standard did nothing to keep the noise down from people returning in the early hours. We mentioned this to the receptionist the next morning and they were very apologetic and then moved us to another room which was a lot quieter, the staff here were very helpful. If we were in London again and wanted to stay south of the river we would stay here again.

Room Tip: any room apart from room 5 next to reception

I was staying for one night in London for a university interview so needed a place to stay over for the night.
The guesthouse was on Wandsworth road and was easy access to buses running to and from the centre and was simple and quick to get into central London.

The room was pretty basic, single bed, television (which I wasn't expecting) bathroom with great shower and sink, the wifi in the room was well connected so couldn't complain.

Would recommend this to anyone staying in London for short stays for its location, simplicity and its prices.
