Stayed for one night and it was so so smelly and grubby. Location for Westfield Stratford is good but the noise from the train track is horrendous. We only had one channel on the television. No fob to get in and out of the main door and gate. Customer service was terrible. Guests complaining on reception and the reception guy... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks for work, and by and large the stay was ok; nothing special. The rooms are generally very good, and decorated well and the bathrooms are good. Each apartment has a dishwasher and washing machine. On arrival you are provided with shampoo, conditional and shower gel miniatures, a few dishwasher tablets and a couple of... More

Guys marlin apartments is just a waste of money. I paid £325 just for 2 nights for a two bedroom apartment. Such a horrible location after every 2 minutes there is one train passing by. Apartments are like as if you are staying in a birds nest. I dont know why the hell they are charging so much. I would... More

Booked the hotel as part of a business trip to London, and wow what a disappointment. First and foremost, the hotel is straight on top of railway that is operated around the clock. This means you will get little to no sleep during your stay. If you are hoping to work using their WIFI you'll be profoundly disappointed, the wifi... More

Having booked these apartments and had a great stay the previous year, we didn't hesitate to do the same again for this year's Ride London event as the location is perfect and the apartment was great last year. What a disappointment! Firstly, having reserved parking, which is quite important when you've got valuable bikes etc in your vehicle, we received... More

I don't normally bother with reviews, but with so many things this time I thought I would. Yes it's noisy but this was expected given the location. I stayed with my husband and 7 month son for the London bike ride as it was close to the start for a 5 am start. Book your parking space early as they... More

We stayed for 2 nights in July and had to choose between closing the windows and overheating, or opening them and being deafened by frequent passing trains. Also it's half a mile away from central Straftord, past building sites. I really like Marlin, but for this one it's, "never again". Apart from that, it's pretty good. Trainspotters would probably love... More

These apartments are advertised as 'plush' and 'luxurious'. They so are not. From the peeling paint on the entry gate, to the lack of any kind of 'reception', I really felt like I was going into the back door of some kind of institution. The rooms were ok, but nothing like the photos, scratched furniture, ripped chairs, no scatter cushions... More

The description reads "free high speed internet (wifi)", this is actually a scam. The free wifi is made extremely slow on purpose. You can however upgrade to normal internet speed for 12 pount a day, 30 a week and 85 pound per month. I was forced to pay 85 pound, just to get some normal "free" internet. Secondly, the rooms...
