I booked this hotel because the pictures looked good and the rooms looked nice, clean & tidy, but that was far from reality! The walls & ceilings looked dirty & there were tea stains on the bedsheets! And by the looks of more than half the reviews on here, I'm not the only one whose had a bad experience here!... More

Seemed a nice hotel but because of my request ignored and i now have a long drive on a sleepless night, bad sinuses from the... More

I was overcharged TWICE!!!! The bed was full of pee stains, kettle didn't work I had to manually hold it in place with my foot, I was finding it extremely difficult to breathe as the heating was broken on max and couldn't be turned off. The pillows gave me & my partner a stiff neck, it took a long time... More

Reserved a room in this hotel based on a google map of its location being close to a college course in London. It is a budget hotel and you get what you pay for. It claims it has wi-fi but that depends on which room you get. Remote controls are not left in rooms and you have to ask for... More

It's cheap for an Hotel within striking distance of London and serves a great breakfast but that was the end of the good points. The staff are friendly but the hotel is not. It comprises of what looks like a few older type houses joined together which can be interesting in some locations but fails here. Floors and doors squeak,... More

Me and my husband booked a room for one night. It turned out they gave us a room right next to the resturant eating area. You open the window and voilà the resturant and people in there. Let me ask you how the hell you give a room with window right in the resturant to people staying there? And god... More

Great place to stay, excellent value for money (including free breakfast each morning at this price), very friendly staff, rooms were cleaned to a high standard. The hotel is only a short walk from the station and very easy to identify from the road. If you're travelling to London then there are frequent trains in via Stratford although I'd recommend...

Me and my girlfriend want to visit London to celebrate our friends birthday. We wanted a cheap clean hotel that either provided breakfast or could offer us some ideas on where to have breakfast close by. We looked at this hotel and the pictures look very nice, the price was very surprising in a good way, also only an hour... More
