Had to spend a night in Hendon and booked into the Hide Hotel.
Not cheap, but good service, adequate (and quiet) room, and very handy to the nearest tube station.
I would recommend this place wholeheartedly.
Just one tiny thing... The breakfast was magnificent. A nice continental style cold collation which included absolutely everything! Pate, high quality cheese, parma ham, smoked salmon, it was all there and absolutely crying out for some 'fresh from the bakery' baguettes. Sadly, you got sliced white or sliced brownish, flaccid bread. Oh well..
