          • Couple
            6.2

            hotel was nice and bright and clean

            room was too warm and wall fan did not work. Although hairdryer was in room there was no plug attached.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Price was reasonable compared with offfered services. Brakfast included ed a free parking in an open area but locked at night. Bus stop in front of the hotel and underground 10' wolking.

          • Couple
            5.4

            Safe parking and good access to where I needed to be

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Staff pleasant and breakfast available early

            Did not request non smoking room as I did not think smoking was allowed in hotels now. The room had obviously been used by smokers and ash tray present so this implied smoking allowed, as a non smoker was a bit unpleasant. Be specific when you book!

          • Single
            7.4

            Loved the room - well designed, comfortable, and away from the main road - and i liked the balcony access.

            Breakfast wa uninspiring but it was "free".

          • Older travelers
            3.8

            Good location. Close to a subway station and within the limits of the tourist part of the city.

            Our room wasn't cleat at all. Dirty and used sheets, which they didn't change during our stay ( and I believe even before). When we arrived our room was smelly. The pillows smell like cigarret. The towels were the only thing they change every day, but that didn't meant they were clean towels. The shower wasn't also clean. Also the plates for breakfast were dirty.

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            free parking facilities

            breakfast times not long enough, cut off at 9am needs to be at least 9.30/10:00 am especially on weekends.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Very secure free car parking with good access to bus transport into the city, or to next underground. Kettle, tea/coffee facilities in room. Quiet area, especially in the rooms at the back of the hotel.

            Breakfast finishes too early at 9 o'clock on the dot (we did not even try to be there), fortunately Sainsbury Express is across the road with excellent sandwiches etc!

          • Family with children
            7.0

            That it was a quadruple room for a reasonable price,

            It doesn't look much like a hotel from the front and the fact that you eat breakfast in the reception is wierd and make it seem cheap, should have a wall up to seperate the areas.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Friendly atmosphere, lovely breakfast.

            Maybe more tea and coffee facilities in the rooms, this would have been lovely as we traveled a long way and more then 1 hot drink would have been a nice improvement.

          • Couple
            8.2

            free parking, allowed us to change room

            at first we were put in a outside part of hotel, room was dirty and hair in shower etc. we asked to change rooms they put us in a really nice clean room. paid for breakfast but they didnt have any fruit so i couldnt eat anything as im dairy and gluten free think they should of done fruit for people with diarty problems, apart from that we were happy

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            The staff were very obliging and helpful and having the free parking facility was a bonus. Handy for the tube station into the city. Even allowed us to leave the car after checking out, so we could could make the most of the day.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            no complaints for the price and within easy drive to the O2 Arena and Excel

            Its basic and Good value for the money so can not fault

          • Couple
            6.2

            The room was clean and quite large for a budget hotel. Nice big shower. Good value.

            The staff were shouting and banging doors before 7am on Sunday morning!! One of the milk sachets was off.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            The room was clean.

            We heard a lot of noises from the street at nights when we were sleeping..
