“Good with some issues”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

I stay n this hotel regularly and it was always satisfactory but this time I had some issues. Firstly toilet n my room wouldn't flush properly, awful smell of sewerage comin up from toilet. Bed sheets were filthy had blue marks on them & the final issue was ants/flyin ants n my room, think I even drank one wit my coke. The staff are very helpful & it is a clean hotel but this time I was very unhappy.

The location is equal to its price, especially in the promotion price. The family room is in good condition. The shower is good, and its space is bigger than before.

The staff is quite even when we say hello.

Room Tip: the entrance is not easy for clients to find. searching on google before you go.

Can't rate the staff highly enough ... They couldn't have done more to make the stay pleasant!! The room was stark but served the purpose and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Lovely walk in shower in the little space capsule bathroom. Towels were pristine but had definitely seen fluffier days!!! The room would have benefited from a bin. Food was basic but served the purpose - the fish pie was actually quite tasty. Would stay again.

This hotel is ideal for visiting London with a tube station just a 15 minute walk away or a 5 minute bus journey. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. Food was of a good standard if perhaps a little pricey - but it is London. We would certainly consider this hotel if we visit London again.
