“enjoy our stay”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

It was great to stay me and my boyfriend to this hotel nearest London - aprox.20 minutes from the East Croydon Rail Station. It is a quiet place and it was a pleasant room, good services and good food.
We enjoyed every minutes!

Yours sincerely,

Daniela & Valentin, Bucharest, Romania

Room Tip: Quiet room, many elevators

I traveled from the US to the UK for a week for a business trip. I was only 5 minutes walking distance from the office. The hotel also had a great selection for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With everything I needed so close by, I had no need for a car. I also had free wi-fi to use my computer in the room. The room was large and the bathroom was nice and updated. However, the room could use a little updating. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. I wanted to workout while I was here, but the gym was very small and I had to wait for a treadmill or bicycle. I found out that "outsiders" could pay to use the gym. Since that's the case, they really need to enlarge it and have more than one treadmill and one bicycle to accommodate all the guests. They had a great breakfast and dinner buffet. The dinner had everything you could have imagined to eat, which justifies the price. The surrounding area was nice and quiet and my 5 minute walk to the office was a scenic one. I would consider staying here again if I travel back to Croydon.

We booked this hotel at 3pm the day we went via a last minute website and got an executive room very cheaply. We absolutely loved it! The staff were very polite and helpful - for example, my partner ordered a starter in the restaurant that evening but i chose not to have one but they brought me a plate of complimentary crudities and dips! We were only there one night but left feeling very refreshed!

If you are ever unlucky enough to be sent to Croydon for business (no one ever goes for pleasure), the Croydon Park Hotel is a good place to stay. Overall, it is efficient and functional, and on a relatively quiet road. Location is convenient, only a few minutes walk from East Croydon station, Fairfield Hall and town centre. Though it has been partly refurbished, some aspects look a bit old (bathroom plumbing, for example). Breakfast is very good - generous and varied buffet, service quick & friendly. Didn't try the bar snacks or evening meals, though should have, as dining in Croydon itself is pedestrian at best. Checkout slow at busy times. Fitness centre short on changing & shower space.

Room Tip: Rooms high up and not facing the road would be best.

Great location with free parking.
Excellent friendly welcome from reception and our room was very comfortable.Big bed and sofa in room. Clean.
Dinner buffet was really nice and excellent value. Restaurant manager had excellent customer service skills and made sure we were happy with everything. Bar staff knowledgeable about the wine and cocktails were made with panache! .Loved the sofas outside the bar area to relax on. Ordered food late one night and came very well presented and was tasty.
Breakfast was a good buffet choice and only thing that marred was the lack of milk and the waiter forgot to bring some when asked!
Used the pool which although small was nice, used the gym which is downstairs and hot, one fan not working and weight machines had no instructions on them and no staff to ask. Felt if you had an accident in the gym no one would know and there were no cups/bottles for water.

I stayed at the Croydon Park for 2 nights in a twin room with a friend who was getting married the next day.

Upon checking in the staff were extremely helpful, in arranging for a quick laundry service for my friends suit so it could be back in time for the wedding. This meant the stay got off to a great start and the staff continued to be very curtious and helpful throughout the stay.

Check in was done effortlessly and we made our way to the room. The room itself was above average, very clean and tidy, a good size, including and a decent sized bathroom. As others have said a mini-bar/fridge is really expect from a hotel of the size and class, but this was the only real minor let down with the room.

We did experience the restaurant for both lunch and breakfast. Lunch was superb, once again polite, helpful staff and a nice selection of food at the buffet and the 4 of us who ate, all throughly enjoyed our meal.

Having experienced Lunch the day before, I was really looking forward to Breakfast, but found it to be disappointing in comparison. We booked a couple of other non hotel guest for breakfast at £14.50 and unfortunately it wasn't worth half that price.

The choice was average, coffee/tea is served via waiter service, when a pot/jug on the table would have been much better. The selection on offer was average and some food luke warm and other items not replaced.

We had a quick look at the gym/swimming areas and they looked nice enough, but didn't have enough time or energy to experience them.

Overall though the trip was enjoyable, the staff particularly pleasant and helpful and I would return and recommend the hotel.

The only let down was the breakfast and I would not pay extra for breakfast again as far better/cheaper is available within a few minutes walk in the town centre.

The check-in process was straightforward and the staff were pleasant. We were pleased to find that the hotel had free car parking and there were plenty of spaces available during our stay. However, we could not find a lift from the underground car park to the ground floor of the hotel, which meant that we had to take the stairs with a particularly heavy case.

The room was somewhat dated, but it was clean, and as other people have mentioned below, it was quite spacious. Overall, we were pleased with the quality of the room. Our only slight frustration was the lack of a fridge, but we were provided with ice upon request.

One of the reasons that we chose this hotel, over other hotels of a similar price in the area, was because of the advertised facilities, in particular the gym and the swimming pool. Much like the room, these facilities are rather dated, albeit they are adequate. Our biggest frustration was that both the pool and the gym were very busy with what appeared to be individuals not staying at the hotel. This meant that we spent much less time using these facilities than we otherwise would have done.

Having said that, on the whole, we did enjoy our stay, and we would return should we re-visit the area.
