“Birthday weekend away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

Me and my partner stayed here at the weekend as we were going to a concert at Alexandra palace. We found the hotel on foot, from the tube station no problem. The staff were cheerful and friendly on arrival. The room was larger than expected with an en suite, a very comfortable bed and was very clean. The owner arranged a taxi for us which was a great help. The breakfast was good with a great choice of different food and drink.
There was a little noise above us during the night but nothing worth complaining about.
The owner was very friendly and the next day we left he recommended we spend the day in Camden, which we did and glad we listened as it was brilliant.
All in all perfect for what we needed, a clean, comfortable, friendly place to sleep and I'm sure we will return.

The Chumleigh 'hotel' is nothing more than a guest house.

It felt as though it's the type of place workmen or truckers stay when working on an overnight job.

The name outside was obscured by numerous transit vans parked in the parking bays - an extended sign off the house would have prevented us from passing by it twice!

On first arrival the house was deserted. the shutter was down on reception (if you could call it reception) and we ended up walking into a room where a woman was ironing! She courteously rang the owner and soon after she appeared but it wasn't the greeting you'd expect from a 'hotel'.

The room (no.1) was adequate in itself although i'm glad we only stayed the single night. The fridge in the corner made such a noise i had to unplug it to get to sleep. The blinds didn't work correctly (missing fittings) and being on the ground floor we had to manually move the slats so no one could see in the room.

The bed was nice and comfy and i did get a good nights sleep until i was woken by someone outside the room talking quite loudly - at 6:30am ! I presumed they were workers at the hotel, if they were they should be much quieter when they arrive for work.

Breakfast - the booking said continental breakfast but to our great surprise as we sat down the chef? asked if we would like full english. Probably the most disappointing full english i have ever had. The sausages were very cheap, a couple of the tiniest pieces of bacon you've ever seen. The fried eggs (2) were nicely cooked along with the beans.

It just felt like we were in someone's house and it was all a bit dog eared.

Room Tip: Don't choose a ground floor room!

I feel bad saying this cos the woman staff member is lovely & doing her best but...the owner has cut every corner possible & the result is deeply unpleasant. Cold, bleak, in a state of disrepair. Was unfortunate enough to spend 3 nights here, never slept for one of them.

We had a large and comfortable family room.
Close to the underground station and with easy and free car parking.
Suitable for good value stay for visiting London.
We had a microwave in the room and the host allowed us to have our dinner in the breackfast room.

in room 8 you have to share with hundreds of bed bugs for which i was bitten at least 20 times...on checking the duvet it was black and looked like it had been used to wash a fleet of lorries...the owner offered to wash our clothes but lost most of them and never apologised or was there to be spoken to,he left it all to one of his lackies who spoke little english,had little interest in our problems but olympic gold medallist personal hygiene problem...the chef refused to serve us a cooked breakfast on our last morning and he and the rest of the chinese laundry made sure they made enough noise all morning to make sure us night shift workers got little sleep...i will be getting in touch with environmental health to investigate this fleapit

My son lives in a flat in Finchley and this hotel made an ideal place for us to stay.
When we arrived and booked in we were offered a cup of coffee and a chat about the area and
how to get to the tube etc.

The room we had was a double on suite. It was clean enough and had a fridge and microwave which I thought was handy should we have wanted a snack. My one complaint would be that the on suite was tiny - like a caravan bathroom. It was about 1m x 1m its a good job I didnt have a cat with me as I certainly wouldn't have been able to swing it in there.

The breakfast was excellent. There was more than enough choice and catered for every taste.

Its not really a hotel its more like renting a room in a big house where you come and go as you please and help yourself to your breakfast. That said egg bacon and beans is offered if you want it.

One very positive point is there is loads of parking either on the forecourt or in the street.

I would certainly stay again if my son stays in Finchley and would be ideal if anyone needed somewhere to stay on business.

Room Tip: If you want a on suite big enough to actually get in then dont have room number 10

Rude customer service. The owner was rude over the phone, hang up on us when we hadn't finished explaining our situation on arrival. Hardly ever answered the phone. No Lifts. Bedrooms are very limited. No warning on the bathroom step, tripped over several times. Would not advice anyone to visit this hotel, was not as expected and far too expensive for what the hotel offered. No facilities. Never answers the door, were kept waiting outside for ages for someone to let us in the hotel. We were spoken to like a child and not a valued customer. Awful staff, no shops around, middle of nowhere and when giving the key back for the room, their were no signs were to leave the key, no-one at reception so we had to ring up and took a while for someone to answer and even then he still didn't come out so we had to give it to the cleaner after 20mins of waiting! Will not advice anyone to stay at this hotel! Hotel looks haunted.

Room Tip: Hotel is awful in general.
