“awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

We arrived at what I can only describe as a glorified hostel!! Breakfast was supposed to be included but you had to pick it up the previous evening. This included a muffin (cake) a box of orange juice (out of date) and a box of cereal - but we were informed that there was no milk, no utensils. Utterly horrible. The room was supposed to be a "family room" but there wasn't room to swing a cat and the bathroom - you had to stand sidewise to close the door and get in the shower, which was dirtly.

We had asked for an early check in but were told on our arrival that the room was not ready as the owners son had turned up last night and was still asleep in the bed!!!

Never ever going back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2009

My first trip to london was not to meet the Queen (unfortunate) :) the reception was nice and i must say the cosmopoitan nature of the staff at the counter made me feel much at ease.

the room was small neat and compact. i was later told that hotel rooms are generally small in london. but it was nice and cosy.

the breakfast spread was amazingly good and a HUGE area.

the hotel for me great as just a few minutes away you have public means of transport and a row of shops offereing you some london tour or the other.

not too many good eateries around but a good a walk and a hungry stomach is all you need before you can find something great for your palate.

other then for business purposes may not advise it to a tourist.
