Positives, I actually found the staff quite pleasant to speak with. Negatives: - the room was dirty, very unpleasant stains on the carpet meaning i kept my shoes on when walking around at all times. - no hot water in the shower - stains on the curtains, which were also very thin - room looked over another property within touching...

The night before we travelled I read all the reviews of this place. Yes, the rooms are small, yes they're a little dated and yes, our bathroom tap wobbled a little but on the plus side our room was spotless, as was the bathroom. The shower worked fine and the bed was super comfy. People seem to want to pay... More

SHOCKING!!!!!Where to start! 1) You are expected to bring Photo ID such as as passport (UK hotel/British Citizens!!!) which they don't tell you when you book, so naturally you don't bring any! Apparently this is for health and safety! (Hmm!)2) TINY double(ha, ha) room. 3) Have to hang all clothes above the bed (no wardrobe) 4) Was full of builders... More

This hotel was truly awful. I stayed one night out of necessity of working a Sunday in North London. The room was not a double as I requested, they moved me to a twin. On the ground floor facing the road. As a female travelling alone I felt quite uneasy about this. It was also unbearably warm in the room... More

I booked this room for two of our company staff. They witnessed a mouse in the room shortly after arrival and asked to be moved to another room. They were told by the desk staff that there was no alternative accommodation and they were not offered a refund or any help whatsoever. To compound the issue, the shower was broken... More

Stayed here for 3 nights just for a bed as the daily commute from Hampshire was unbearable. I wasn't expecting much and wasn't disappointed! All the double rooms were booked so had to pay £60 a night. It wasn't worth £60 and was only really a £40 room. My colleague was staying at the St. Georges Hotel in Good Mayers... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, when attending events at Olympic Park: the Anniversary Games. It is well located, a short walk from the Underground station, and the good array of bars in the High Street. On site parking is free and useful and the breakfast was good. Rooms are newly decorated and basic, and overall the decor is modern and... More

Stayed there for New Year's 2013 w/ a friend. Our room was on the ground floor and we had glass walls facing the street and only a curtain to cover the room from strangers looking in. Not to mention the fact that the hotel isn't really in the safest neighborhood, so you don't really feel comfortable knowing there's only glass... More
