I stayed here for 3 nights, with my daughter, in town for a conference across the street at the university, which came recommended for the convenience. The reception area could be nicer, it has several stains on the couch, but the reception people were friendly and helpful. However, in the room, there was nowhere to hang our towels, and we... More

Stayed here as close to where I was working it said it was 4 stars at £125 however when I was there it felt like a cheap B and B... Rooms were clean but the paintwork was very tired with dirty net curtains.... The brown carpets made it feel even more tired... Won't be recommending it.,,

I do not usually write poor reviews, as I've never really had an experience like this before anywhere in the world. 1) I stayed in room 106. Woke up to a number of welts on my arms running in lines which, once researched, immediately looked like bed bug bites. Terrible. 2) The air conditioning was broken, and the room was... More

I booked this to be near a course I was taking in London. I couldn't afford the hotel the course was in (£600+ per night). I have a few issues which meant I had to find a hotel close to my ultimate location rather than staying outside of the area and catching the tube in. After reviewing AirBNB and deciding... More
