We stayed here for two nights and found the hotel and staff to be lovely and friendly. The rooms clean and well equipped, the breakfasts were lovely, (evening meal also available but we didn't try this). I picked this hotel as it wasn't far from the main railway stations into London and has easy accessibility, tube and buses, to all...

My room had two tiny single beds, no air-conditioning, the smallest bathroom I've ever seen and ear plugs on the bedside drawer which is never a good sign. The wifi was pretty fast and good for email. Toiletries were the type you'd get in a cheap motel in the USA. Check in staff was great. Check out a little onerous....

From the moment you walk in the front door, of this 'olde worlde, lovely hotel', the delightful scent of a clean and welcoming establishment draws you in to the small reception area, with those wonderful high back relaxing chairs, the free cooled water bottles and magazines for your use. We have always found the reception staff delightful, and should you...

Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

As you would expect on a main road in central London, it was quite noisy in our room, with a bar just along the road and late night party goers. This wasn't helped by the lack of double glazed windows. The hotel helpfully provides earplugs though so we still had a good night's sleep. The beds were very comfortable. Compared...

Really good location, 15 minute walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station. The room was basic but clean and had what we needed. Nice powerful shower and bright bathroom with large windows. Beds were very comfy too. Floorboards were very noisy though and a little fridge would have been nice. Unfortunately the loft was working when we visited but this...

We only spent 3 nights in this hotel. We were welcomed by the very friendly and helpful staff, along with a glass of prosecco and scrummy hot cross buns. Not sure this is everyday but it was a really pleasant touch. The hotel seems to be split into two sections. One has a lift and the other hasn't. We did...

While the location is fine the hotel needs a lot of improvement. No lift and we were 4 flights up (no biggie I thought) then we found out we had one electrical outlet in the room that worked.....and the TV was plugged into that one. If you need to do any type of work on your electronics you may want...

Stayed here on Saturday for my Husbands birthday.

Good value for money, room was upgraded for free to a junior suite. Our little boy loved it and the breakfast was good food. Would return. There is a car park right down the road under the park which is fairly cheap if you Pre book. Remember to use hotel reservation as you'll receive further money off! We took a...

I love staying in this part of London. It has some great restaurants nearby and nice little outdoor mall with a grocery store. The tube station is close by along with Costa and Starbucks. The staff is always accommodating, and extremely pleasant. The room was a bit small with no air conditioning, but there was a fan in the room....
