Always impressive, very basic but true to value, very accommodating and good breakfast. What more can you ask for in London. Keep up the great work. Please try to book rooms at the back side away from the maddening traffic on Finchley Road.

Hi LD2200, I'm sorry about the room's dated feel and lapses in its upkeep that prevented you from completely having a good time!

Stayed here Monday 7th Jan for one night. I picked this hotel because it’s easier and cheaper to stay out of central London, and just travel in on the tube. Easy to find and quite a good size. Very friendly staff who helped arrange parking etc. Good size room for the price
