We returned again to this well-run hotel. Spotlessly clean, well-run but best of all, the front desk staff welcome us like family and take such good care of us. Hearing that we were in London to celebrate my birthday, there were good wishes all round. But more than that, coming back at night after our celebrations with the family, there... More

We staid over in this hotel for one night. The hotel is clean, in a good location, close to the underground. Opposite there's a nice shopping centre, on the street we have a MacDonald's , KFC, some small restaurants/takeaways and some shops. From the hotel there's a 35 minute walk to the zoo. Staff was very helpful, breakfast was not... More

We spent two days in very hot weather so the air conditioning was a blessing. Staff were very helpful and even supplied iced, fresh lemonade in reception. Breakfast was varied and plentiful. Reception staff couldn't have been more accommodating and were lovely with my grandson. We had a family room and there was no cot for the baby, which had... More

Excellent location, very friendly staff. The food was very cheap and not bad, just average. The hotel was very clean, and the room was nice and relatively spacious, especially for a small hotel. However, the mattress on the bed was very hard, so it made it very difficult to sleep. If you don't mind hard mattresses though it would be... More

I have used this hotel several times on visits to London. Rooms are very clean and the whole hotel has a good modern feel to it. Ample breakfast. The hotel is particularly well situated if you are taking in an event at Lords or Wembley.

This hotel is perfect for concert trips to Wembley as just one stop on the tube. Parking was available at £20 a night and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were nice and the breakfast was included. Would recommend this hotel.
