“Not the best.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

This hotel is in a great location and allows you to run a tab plus the breakfast is really nice. Those are the only good things about the hotel. The problems with it make a longer list. Firstly the windows in the room don't lock and just have a piece of wood for propping them open and they slam down with such force they could take your fingers off not good as room is on ground floor. Door lock is always sticking which makes it difficult to lock. Rooms are small. Showers are a drip. Towels are prized above gold as are tioleteries as they never give you any. Parking is rubbish 19 rooms but only 10 parking bays. To be honest its not worth what you pay for it.

Very good value for money. Free parking, and just a short walk away from South Croydon Rail. Room was very spacious and although a bit dated it was clean and comfortable. Breakfast only served for 1h, but the staff rung my phone to ask if I required a breakfast, so it's impossible to miss it. Overall a pleasant stay and I won't hesitate to book again.

Hotel OK, but full of white van men and their vans. Vans poorly parked, scratches and white paint on my car. One driver staggered up the stairs at 4am and was moving his van off the car park at 5am.

We stayed here a total of 3 night. Initially I was happy with this place. But this changed upon the first night. There is to much light in the rooms at night from the street. The toilet and bathroom o sall, you cant move in there. I am an averagre european and I could bearly close the shower door.

They do offer free parking which is a big plus as well as free WiFi throughout the entire hotel.

Breakfast is simple and nothing special, I recomed to save that and look for a small breakfast place in the city where you get more value for your money.

The staff looks nice and honest from the outside, but when it comes to refunds they show the true face. A refusal for a refund of ten pounds for a non talking breakfast at the last day due to our trainshedule through the eurotunnel ( note the BF times are just an hour in the morning and quite late on Saturdays) has destroyed the positive feeling I had about this place.

They have lost a returning customer and I do not recommend this place to any of my friends.

A great location, convenient for East Croydon station, ergo London. Central Croydon within walking distance, including the Fairfield Halls.

The booking in was quick and efficient. The room was clean and warm. There were lots of these little touches, such as biscuits, a box of tissues, soap and shampoo. Breakfast was well cooked.

Not a hotel with amenities where you would want to spend your day, but if you need a place to sleep for a few nights whilst visiting London/Croydon this is the place to be.
