Booked the night before driving down to London - last minute idea for a long weekend.
The drive down from the north west was very easy and stress-free. The hotel was also very easy to find. Arrived at the hotel at 5 past 2 and checked in straight away. Chose to stay in a "club room" which is just like a double room but with less empty space. More than ideal for what we wanted it for.
The communal areas and the room were smart and clean and looked to be recently decorated. There was a TV on the wall but we didn't stay in the room long enough to use it for more than as background noise before we went out.
The bed was good, the sheets clean. Bathroom was great. Clean with a good shower.
A tray with tea, coffee and hot choc with a kettle was in the room. Towels were fresh and clean. No thing really to detract.
I could even see my car in the car park from our window. Free parking too! Just what I was after.
The hotel was just down the road from Wimbledon town centre which had lots of shops of all kinds. So if you get hungry, bored or want a new top for the evening, you needn't worry. And Wimbledon train and tube station was less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Perfect!
We only stayed one night but could have easily stayed in the same room for a few more days. Storage space (shelves, etc) in the room was good and even a light sleeper like me slept well.
We checked out the next day without any fuss or faff. I even asked to stay in the car park as it looked very secure to me. An extra £12 charge was asked for but that was ok as I didn't have to worry about the car until we were ready to leave again.
All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit London or Wimbledon especially if you are driving down.
