Because of its location and design I would agree with previous reviews that the hotel lacks charm and soul. However, we just needed a bed for the night. This I thought was good and the room clean with decent toiletries. The shower was nice and hot and the room even had an air con unit which was a god send on a very rare hot English summer night.
Breakfast was a disgrace; cold beans, blackened sausages and tepid coffee. In a nut shell a Danish pastry from waitrose around the corner would have been a better bet.
Overall ok if you just want a bed for the night.
