Stayed at St George for 2 nights last week. After reading all the positive reviews about how nice it is I was really looking forward to our stay.
The hotel itself is really very average. It could really do with a refurbishment and an update. The windows were terrible at noise control – I woke up at 6.30am to the sound of traffic which I wasn’t too pleased with. Also the room were very stuffy and it was an absolute nightmare to open the window as you had you manoeuvre the TV off its bracket on the wall to pull a giant pane of glass out.
In the bathroom the shower screen wasn’t designed ergonomically so water sprayed out onto the floor. My 6”2 tall partner barely squeezed in shower area. Also no smaller hair towels were provided which was a pain when washing my hair and the hairdryer was pathetic.
Another issue was that we booked a double bed but when we checked in only twins were available so we had to push the beds together and move all the furniture around ourselves. The lady took an hour to let us know all double beds were fully booked – surely this takes 10 minutes to check the booking system?
The positives were that it was fairly well located near the train and underground. As far as bog standard hotels go it was very average – nothing special just a bed in a room near a station. If this is what you’re after then it will be perfect for you but if you want a bit more from your hotel than just a bed in a tiny room look somewhere else.
