What a shocking place this was. It's like a throw back to the 1970's. The room we had as a 'twin' was narrow, tiny and unbearably hot. Had to wedge the window open with a can as the sash mechanism was broken. Only one power point, no where near a mirror so ladies don't even think about drying your hair!... More

My adult son and I were visiting friends in North Yorkshire from the US, and on our way to Paris were going to have an opportunity (rather last minute) to spend one night in London (June 25th). We began looking for a room around the end of May and finding something even remotely affordable in such a short time was... More

I don't normally review rooms but i almost didn't stay at this hotel because of all the negative reviews. In my opinion, whether or not you should stay at this room is dependent on your expectations and what you consider a necessity. I had a few priorities for my hotel room in the following order: 1. Price 2. Location 3.... More

I stayed here for 1 night on business and can honesly say I will NEVER ever go near this place again. The room was disgusting, shared facilities were beyond dirty and my bedroom door would not shut or lock. My room was £90 and I can honestly say I would not stay here again if it was free.

This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Don’t spoil your stay in London. I felt sorry for the staf... We stayed as less as possible at the hotel and didn’t used the including breakfast in the basement. How is it possible that places like this can stay opened, is there no control at all?

Box room with a shower plonked in with the rest of the squashed in furniture. Hot and stuffy and could not turn off the radiator. Had to jar the window open as wouldn't stay open, dirty curtains. Loud guests could be heard regularly in the early hours, some of whom opened our bedroom door in the middle of the night... More

well....what a dreadful disappointment. A star for location but sadly this is its only good point. From a sardine can sized room, to skirting boards thick with dust, sink in room - tap only provides cold water. Stains on bedding, holes in curtains, even the garden is a mess! Severe lack of love in this hotel. Shared bathroom shower had... More

After reading the reviews on here about this hotel I was close to tears about staying here, specially due to me being pregnant. The hotel is in need of up to date bedding. The room me & my hubby had was an en-suite, room 16 & was great for a weekend away when we were hardly in. The bedding, room... More

Do not stay here! I paid £75 per night during tube strike. Huge mistake but did have much choice of changing hotel as all fully booked and inflated prices. I stayed in room 15 and I was close to tears when I saw that the back door was held closed with a rabbit hutch hook. I was then greeted by... More
