I stayed at this hotel for the first time over the New Year period and was well impressed with the service. The meet and greet was very warm and welcoming, no requirement to request for anything as the receptionist confirmed all my requirements including my extended check out.

The bed was very worn out and incredibly tiny, in fact it was the smallest double I've stayed in at any hotel! The location is good (opposite Apsley station, 30 mins to central London) and it's near the canal which is quite picturesque. The staff were friendly and the bathroom

You can get into Harry Potter world early. our tickets were 4pm, we arrived at before 3pm and got in without any problem. There is a cafe inside Harry Potter world and its butter beer was wonderful.

Do the sofa beds in room fit 2 children aged 9 and 12. Thanks in advance.
We didn't use it as a bed, but it was a full 2 seater, so I'm sure it would have been fine for the children when opened.

"Ask for a room on the canal side of the hotel so you're away from the railway line."
"Our first room was an adapted and was good but near the road. We moved across the corridor which was quieter and had a sofa."
"1st floor (not ground floor),near hotel facilities, we didn't get disturbed by bar noise."
"If you want a king size bed; check before you book that there is one in the room"
"Stayed in room 324, no problems."
$46 - $170 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
