“Decent hotel for a cheap price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

After reading some reviews, my partner and I were skeptical about booking this hotel. However, we were on a budget so we decided to book it anyway. Besides, we were there to explore, not stay in our hotel for the whole time!

It was very easy to get to the hotel by tube and/or bus. Upon arrival the staff seemed nice and we checked in very easily. We stayed in the second building on the second floor. Our room was extremely nice considering how cheap the rates were!! It was obvious that the room we stayed in had recently been renovated. New decor and cupboards etc. The room was small-ish but the bed was comfy and the bathroom was lovely! There wasn't a lot of storage space for clothes but we made do with what was provided. It was clean, bright and spacious. The shower was quite large and powerful. We never really heard any noise from the hotel or the street outside. We had fresh tea and coffee in the room everyday and the bed was made daily. We could come and go as we pleased as the front reception was open all day and night.

This was the closest hotel to the centre of London at the cheapest price. We would definitely stay here again. Some reviews have said that their rooms are not as nice, but maybe some of them aren't. We were lucky and our room was lovely! In fact, we were shocked by how little we had paid. It felt as though we'd cheated the system somehow!

We didn't pay for the breakfast and chose to get something once we were out.

The bus stop is literally 30 seconds away with easy access to central London. Buses are very often so you're never waiting long and they run 24h which means you can go out on a night out and not have to worry about being able to get back.

We never had a problem with the staff, but we said hello to them every time we passed. Politeness is a two way street. One night when we got back to our room, the key card didn't seem to work. We took it back to reception and they fixed the problem within seconds and seemed to be happy to do so. They weren't overly nice but they definitely weren't rude to us and catered to our needs.

I would definitely recommend this hotel on the stay we had. There could be some improvement, but like I'd said from the start. We were there to explore and not sit in our rooms all day. All I would say is that if you're not happy with your room, asked to be moved. It can't hurt to try and maybe you'll get a nice room like we did!

Located a bit far from the city centre, but with direct bus-lines 24h.
Nice and clean, with a sweet staff.

Myself, son and grand daughter stayed here whilst the Olympics were on and definitely not impressed with the staff or breakfast. Peckham Lodge lived up to the reviews I had read on before booking. The room was clean although not the one which we expected, the WiFi hardly ever worked, a member of staff was rude when it was pointed out that there were 2 wheels missing off the bed and breakfast didn't give much choice - cornflakes, rice crispies, toast and drinks and croissants only if you stayed around long enough! They were also still completing refurbushments at the time which again, I thought they would have finished and from reviews seem to have gone on for some time. I suppose you get what you pay for as we did want something cheap and had left finding accomodation quite late so met our needs. On a good note, it is on the bus route with plenty of shops and takeawys nearby and there was a lift right outside of our room which I think they took notice of when I advised I had an impairment to my leg. Despite this, I would only return again if I had to.

Room Tip: If you want or need a lift, this may be compromised by a less qualititive room.

The worst hotel I have stayed in.
Building works throughout, which we were not informed about before.
Tiles of on bathroom floor which cut my foot. shower door kept falling off. Dirty room. room only had 2 beds despite being for 3 people.
Valance sheet on duvan bed had been nailed on.
Quite expensive for a poor hotel and in rough area.

Oh my word! What can I say.....
We booked this place as it was cheap and there is really not much to choose from in the way of accommodation in Peckham. Desperate not to mistakenly book a B and B that might actually be a halfway house for ex-inmates (has happened) we instead landed up somewhere that had the air of being a borstal or a victorian home for wayward children.
The dingy basement twin room smelled awful and in fact had a large sticky puddle in the carpet - a mixture of rusty water from the radiator and carpet glue we thought. The air smelled a little toxic and we had to keep our shoes on! We asked for a move but were told they place was booked out. We feared being put somewhere worse and didn't want to lose the en-suite so stayed put and kept the door wedged open every night for 20 mins to let the heat and fumes out. The room was also too hot but there was not way of changing the temp we were told.
Breakfast was an 'every-man-for-himself' cornflake-grabbing experience. Never have I seen people in so desperate a rush to get a bowl of non-brand cornflakes! It was a crammed in, sit where you can situation in the dining room. I would go back having said that as, you get what you pay for and we don't like to pay much. It was more the fact that we felt that a room in this state should have been closed to residents.

Room Tip: avoid basement rooms as too hot
