“Excellent food served”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We did not stay in this Hotel but were in the new Travelodge a very short walk away in mid September 2012. We used the bar here as it was a good place to spend a couple of hours in the evening.
We ate in the bar a number of times and can highly recommend it. The food is well presented and was always hot and tasty.
We would return

Room Tip: Take time to eat in the bar.

we stayed for one night as we were going to the olympic stadium very well situated only a 2 min walk from the DLR station. the bar area is very modern with wall mounted tv's etc although we did not eat here the food would appear to be of a good pub food standard. our room was immaculate and i would think recently refurbed to a high standard, our room also had an air-con unit which as it happened was very useful as the weather during our stay was very hot, good location ifyou are visiting the excel or o2 arena, would stay again if in this area. only issue was access if return after midnight you have to use side doors and stairs and enter various codes etc to gain entry thankfully we did not have to do this.

We, three girls, have just come back from staying at the Connaught House Hotel and we will be going back when we next need to stay in London. The main reason we were so happy was the fabulous reception from all staff who were cheerful and always helpful. We had a suite, which is basic but comfortable. Only a shower no bath and tea and coffee again is basic. We had a king size bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was a little hard as they always are but easy enough to get to sleep. You can not hear the traffic even though you are next to a main trunk road. The hotel is a five minute walk from the DLR and the excel centre is within walking distance. It would be a fabulous hotel if you were going to the O2 which is two stops away and then you can cross on the new Emirates Air Line.
It has a great pub attached to the hotel which served good food. Breakfast was of good quality and was a good price, made great again by great service. Overall fantastic place to stay.
We would really recommend it.

Good price given the original prices being asked by all hotels and self catering places in the months prior to London 2012. However, £229 for a basic double - room only - is still pretty steep. Bit mean spirited to provide just two tea bags and two coffee sachets; I know people filch them but we all generally want more than one drink! Our groundfloor room had good high ceilings although not much other room; we also had access to a security coded back door which made it really easy to get in after hours without disturbing anyone.
Helpful reception staff arranged for us to arrive and take the room much earlier than planned and I appreciate the influence they exerted over normal housekeeping protocols.
The location is absolutely great; we got to the Stratford for the Olympic Park via Prince Regent DLR in under an hour and got back again post midnight with a very short and acceptable walk from the station. Perfect for Excel, the Emirates Air and London City Airport and O2

Room Tip: Room 1 - worth the walk through the hotel to be on the ground floor and have access to a code operat...
