My partner and I stayed here for a week, and it was a completely wonderful place to stay. Full English breakfast is included for free, and the room was very clean and quiet. The staff is very, very friendly. For example, for my birthday they covered the bed in balloons and gave me a small box of chocolates! The proximity... More

The hotel itself is well located and just a 5 or 6 minute walk from Holborn tube station. For this area of London, it's not off the scale expensive. The staff were all very nice, no issue there. But accommodation wise, it all just felt a little bit tired and in need of some modernisation. The room was compact, the... More

The staff were very helpful, we arrived at the hotel at 12 aware that we weren't able to check in until 2PM and asked to leave our bags there until then. They got the room ready and checked us in by 12:15!! It was only two stops... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, staff were always attentive, rooms were clean and tidy the lift however was very small and took a while to go between floors. This hotel was very central, walking distance to oxford street, Covent Gardens etc. wouldn't think twice about staying there again.
