    Great from check in to check out. Friendly helpful staff. Room was relaxing and large compared to most chain hotels. Easy walk to main Oxford Street with plenty of restaurants to choose from. Close to train station but never heard the trains.

    Our family rooms have a double bed and a single bed, normally for three occupants; it would depend on the age of your children and for how many nights you wish to stay. Please contact the hotel directly with your request.
