Stayed 2 nights 7-8 march. Was dreading staying here following reviews. We were in a triple room. Room very basic but clean. There was no shade covering the light bulb, The window was broken. The room was too small to be a triple room, just enough room for a double but they squeezed in a single too. As a family... More

Although my room was directly opposite the source of... More

Linen was clean. The whole room (hotel) needs seriously up dating. Broken chair, tv hanging off the wall! Walls stained! Bathroom felt dirty. Shower really pants!! - hardly any power. The dining area/breakfast was ok. Wouldn't return - get what you pay for!

A couple of friends and I stayed in this hotel for New Year's Eve and we found the standards very poor. We were greeted by a very unfriendly receptionist and staff in general. I booked two triple rooms on the website however the receptionist responded that in fact these were not available and we would be given two doubles and... More

And they had no idea who might that be. Ok, half an hour later a boy from the staff came and took the stuff away. My... More

I stayed here for a few days in August 2013. I have stayed before and found it to be reasonable in the past. There are some good points. It is quite cheap, not far from the station with easy access to Central London, close to local shops and the big Park. But there are negatives. Room generally dirty. Socks from... More
