Used to be a good hotel which I used frequently. On this occasion a maid let themselves into my room at 5pm without knocking (why?) and breakfast was over 40 mins late starting. My bathroom also stank.

I have stayed at this hotel on various occasions for business and leisure. I had stayed a couple of weeks ago and provided some feedback to the management team. They had kindly offered me a complimentary stay which I had utilised this weekend. They had made my return visit feel very special and welcoming! I had stayed in the suite 348, very spacious, modern and clean! The only one thing I can suggest for improvement would be the quality of the towels. I would like to highlight how helpful and polite two members of the team are that would be Marcia on the front desk and Manager Aurelija Revuckaite. I will definitely be returning to this hotel when back in London!

I stayed one night as attending a trade show in the Excel. Very clean and well organised hotel. Check in was quick, rooms clean and temperature was just right. Breakfast very good, although cereal holders could have been more visible.

This hotel is pretty standard, nothing much more to say on this one. Near by to the excel is pretty much the best thing about it. The rooms are just standard. Food was pretty much standard and the air con didn’t work.
