Travelling with another family member, we booked two single rooms for three nights. We'll be honest - the good reviews paired with the fair prices (65 GBP per room per night) seemed attractive.
The hotel is located outside of central London, but is a matter of minutes from the nearest tube stop - 20-30 mins to central London. Unfortunately, the station was closed for 2 of our 3 days (Sat & Sun) due to work on the line, so we had to walk to the next station (20 mins) every time we wanted to travel to London. No big deal.
The rooms are small, but perfectly fine for one. Two would be a squeeze. Good bathroom, large shower. 5/10 for cleanliness - not dirty, but far from spotless (staines, hairs on bed etc.).
The huge drawback with the hotel is the LACK OF SOUND INSULATION. It was like being back in student halls - every door could be heard, conversations from neighbouring rooms too. I was woken 2 of 3 nights due to noise from inside the hotel, which is what brings the rating right down. Quality of sleep should be priority number one for a hotel, and it was awful here. If you're a heavy sleeper, you might be ok, but beware. Hey - you might even get lucky and not have too many other guests visiting at the same time...but for us, this was a huge let-down.
Good service on reception, tea and coffee in rooms.
