We stayed with 3 in a Crown room on the ground floor, facing the garden. The room was large enough, it included a double and single bed, a desk, two chairs, coffee table, water cooker and a small table with cups, glasses, coffee and tea. There was also a flat screen TV on the wall and a fan ( much needed, we were there last week , 34 degr. C ...) . The bathroom is rather small but as you are usually there by yourself, it's big enough. Shower is ok, could use just a little more presssure but it's hot ! The door lock was in need of some repair and it could use some hooks to put your clothes or towels on.
The room , bathroom and furniture where absolutely not worn out and everything was very clean.
Receptionists were friendly and efficient, so were the staff in the breakfast restaurant. Eventhough the hotel was full, breakfast items were plentifull and constantly being restocked . Choice is adequate ; toasts, cereals, yoghurt, pastries, some cheese and deli items, and the line up of hot British breakfast items. Service was great, dirty plates were taken away etc.
There is also a large bar downstairs and some function rooms.
The hotel has three small car parks, one in front and two in the back. Since you cannot reserve, you just have to be lucky. There is also parking in the streets around the hotel ( no charge). The railstation is just around the corner ( 5 minute walk) , get a off-peak ( after 930 and on weekends) day card for 8 pnds and travel all around london on the train, tube, bus and DLR .
From Blackheath to Central London ( Charing Cross ) is about 25 minutes.
All in all, a good stay for a good price.
