This is a former pub that has been converted into budget accommodation, which was not clear to me from the website. That said, it was quite satisfactory and my overall experience was a positive one. Upon arrival I was met by the manager, Kumar, who was ever obliging, friendly and helpful. Anything I needed, I had only to ask: an extra towel, hair dryer, tea bags, etc. The room was functional, warm, with a comfortable double bed, tv facility, cupboard and drawers, and a small ensuite. Slight problem with the plumbing in that I always had to flush the toilet several times for complete effect, and the light bulbs over the mirror were not operating and were not replaced despite my drawing attention to them. Window blinds in the room did not work so I had to keep them down the whole time. My only serious criticism is that on one night there was a large group of rowdy revellers in the rooms opposite me and I got hardly any sleep. The next morning I requested a room change, which I know would have been granted, but said group had checked out. I could also hear other people's tvs from my room, which didn't really bother me but could be an issue for others. Although the hotel is located on a council estate, as a single woman walking to and fro into Kingston, sometimes after nightfall, I did not feel overly scared or threatened. This is a case of 'you get what you pay for'. Would I stay there again? Yes, certainly, because Kumar genuinely wanted to please, he was always attentive to my needs, and that to me is a mark of good service no matter the 'budget' standard of the facilities.
