Four of us stayed and found the location excellent although it seemed hidden away. Rooms were simple and very clean. My sons room was smaller than ours and did not have a built in shower. Staff were excellent and helpful especially as we had left a charger in the room. Location was excellent to catch train transport from Limehouse. The... More

I stayed here recently for the first time and found the accommodation to be simple but very clean and comfortable. The garden is lovely and there is a real feeling of calm to the place, yet you are only a few minutes walk from Limehouse DLR station.

Clean but basic rooms, good Wi-Fi but best of all they offer free parking which is near impossible in London. Breakfast was good, this hotel would be average anywhere else but the fact its in London, cheap and free parking take it above average

We have stayed in many hotels in London and this is a good choice. Crucially it is 4 minutes walk to Limehouse DLR which goes to Bank, from there you can access anywhere you need. Free parking onsite which is within their walls and gates locked overnight. Reception staff very polite and helpful. This is very refreshing in London. 10/10... More

I was doing a bus presentation in Canary wharf and booked as it was near Docklands light railway. A wonderful calm place. Great breakfast, clean quiet room free parking. Good wifi - the right price. Hope to say again soon So much better than corporate places

I was attracted to book this place by its location for my overnight needs and the peaceful oasis comments in the reviews. It is a retreat style hotel so don't expect a TV, but they have a good wifi service to rooms, which by the way was very clean and comfortable. They obviously pride themselves on the standard they keep.... More

I stayed in a garden view single which was worth the extra £10. The room, in fact the whole facility, was spotlessly clean. The assistance from reception was excellent & although I arrived late there was food available which I enjoyed in the lounge. Breakfast was perfect. No unessecary greasy spoon stuff, just wholesome continental style offering with plenty of... More

In an excellent location near Limehouse DLR station, so you can get into the city and/or to Exel very easily. Nice rooms, spotless and with good amenities, good wifi and good parking, but no television in the room. The focus seems to be on calm and contemplation - I was not aware when booking but this is a Christian establishment.... More
