Building was ideally located to local transport and was convenient for our trip. However on arrival to leave our bags until check in a few hours later, the service received was disgusting, the lady who served us was rude and unwelcoming. On return to check in we went to our room which was nothing like was shown in the pictures... More

Three of us had rooms here for a business trip - all were just as bad - hotel was tatty and in desperate need of refurbishment, bathroom doors didn't close - bedrooms very noisy (no double glazing); also really hot and stuffy (no air-con.). One morning they forget to leave any fresh towels in my colleagues bathroom - but had... More

I say this because on booking.com the images the have used are NOTHING like the actually hotel. The rooms are sort of clean but no where near as beautiful looking as the photos. My room had broken windows that took me about 4 minutes to close (not exaggerating), a broken ceiling in the bathroom so every time i opened the... More

This hotel is dangerous and threatening. I stayed one night in this hotel and albeit I was shocked upon the arrival into the room what happened during the night and beyond was horrifying. At 1am a stranger walked into my room where myself and my daughter slept. I was pregnant at the time and I was awoken to the door... More

We were going to Wimbledon for the finals so wanted somewhere reasonable, not too far away and with parking. We got most of that at the hotel Lily except the most important part - reasonable - was missing. I'll start with the good part. It was a short tube journey from Wimbledon, we parked there for the duration for 30.00,... More

No flat sheets. Dirty rooms. The toiletries consist of two unwrapped bars of soap set on the toilet. No bath mats. Bathroom door doesn't shut. Dirty towels. Charge for internet. Doors heard slamming in the hallways all night. But worst of all was the complete lack of customer service. The desk clerks were incredibly rude over and over again. One... More

Okay...here we go. The hotel is relatively inexpensive (for London) - around £120 per night for a triple room with breakfast for 4 nights. It is old and so are the furnishings and fitments, windows ...and the elevators. The reception was clean and tidy and the staff there were very efficient with the check-in. The decor in the corridors and... More

Well, it is a budget hotel so do not expect 4 or 5 star. As such, I did not get my microscope out to be the Hotel Inspector! Just accept that you get what you pay for. The hotel is value for money to stay for a day or two and was very well worth the cost. Booked it early... More

I stayed here a couple of weeks back. Basic room, not really a problem, except for the shower fixing hanging off of the wall. Next to a busy road, with no double glazing. Room was very hot all night. Breakfast was one of the worst 'full english' i have experienced. Most worrying though, was the next day I overheard another... More
