We had a Saturday night stay. Check in was very quick despite a small queue, & staff were very courteous. The hotel itself is nicely laid out, & you can tell immediately that all fittings & fixtures are brand new. However, be prepared to wait for the lifts - there are only 2 small ones for 10 floors.
The location is very good - next door to Oxford Road train station - but noise is not a problem. The rooms are of a higher spec than other Express hotels we've stayed at, & more roomy with nice colour codes. Very large bathroom, nicely designed, but the shower wasn't as powerful as it looks. Good sized flatscreen tv, comfy bed, various mood lights, etc
The only downside was the breakfast. The (very civilised) queue took about 10 - 15 mins, & unfortunately the food was really poor. The O.J. tasted awful, the coffee machine had no milk, the scrambled egg was woeful, the cooked sausages were half done, no veggie choices...... I know it's free, but I've stayed at some were the breakfast was varied & excellent. They seriously need to sort out the standards. Other hotel chains are cheaper but don't include breakfast, so the food quality may sway some people's choice as whether to stay here or not. It's something which the manager ought sort out a.s.a.p. Overall, though, it's a good place to stay.
