Quick stop over while collecting my daughter to bring her home for the festive period. You definitely get what you pay for. Not the worst but definitely not up to scratch. Cobwebs, stains, broken furniture and unbearable heat were on the list of do nots, and awoken by what I pray was pigeons noisily scratching. Friendly staff and clean bedding were okay, and the offer of a full breakfast was nice. Stayed in far worse places, but some of the wrongs here could be easily rectified.

We stayed here Friday & Saturday prior to attending the Ride London 2019. The Guest house is basically two houses that have been refurbished into one, it is in a quite a busy neighbourhood the majority of houses on the street are guest houses. The room a suitable size with a double bed and a single bed, this is definitely a cheap place to stay and trust me that is not a bad thing, especially if your working within a budget. Although the bed was quiet solid as in the mattress but that could be just me, the pillow again was quiet solid I tried everything to fluff the pillow it definitely did not work. Although I have to admit the security is definitely first class as there is at least 10 CCTV outside and two guys tried to break into our car and the receptionist was out there giving them grief so definitely can’t complain there. This guest house has free WiFi and the WiFi works well so that is a bonus, breakfast was extremely nice a good british fry up lovely and they were extremely friendly and the eating area was spacious and clean. The only issue I had was the shower, I thought the showers were broken until I realised that the power switch to turn on the shower is not in the bathroom but outside in the corridor, so in theory if you were in the shower getting wet and then lathering up and then someone turns the switch off so low and behold you must go outside into the corridor soaking wet to turn it back on! I know, I know who would do that but let’s be honest there is always someone stupid enough to flick the switch. One final note there is a nice little pub just nearby called JONOs which I highly recommend.

This is a basic no frills bed and breakfast. I checked in quickly and had booked a single room with shared bathroom. The room was small, but functional and had a small tv, tea and coffee and a fridge which was a bonus. It was a bit rough round the edges and the shared bathroom was in a bit of a sorry state but ok to use the loo. Unfortunately as I was here for work I decided not to stay overnight mainly as my work location was further away than I realised but combined with the constraints of the room, I did not decide to stay overnight. I probably would have otherwise but I would rebook as it was quite average at best, although, for a nights sleep was adequate. It had on site parking which was free which is a bonus and was not far from a few shops and restaurants which is also good. I would not stay here again as I thought it needed a bit of a tidy up.

Just come back from a one night stay in a deluxe double room which was well presented and was more than big enough as it had an extra single bed too. The room had lovely little reading lights over each bed and a handy fridge along with plenty of tea coffee and milk to make drinks. They also provided some lovely little toiletries including little bars of lux and a tiny nail file set which was very handy for me! The only thing that let it down was the toilet roll holder, shelf and towel rail which should all be replaced and would transform the room and the mirror was crooked for no apparent reason! It was all very clean though. A continental breakfast is served free but you can order a cooked breakfast before 9:45 (this is later than some reviews suggested). Surprisingly the cereals and bread for toasting were all branded (Kingsmill, Kellogg's etc) not cheap supermarket ones which was great. Tea coffee and juice was available but only whole milk. Would like to have seen yogurt and fruit available but maybe that's not popular with many guests. The staff were all friendly, hospitable and helpful and I provided you don't mind staying in an old style guest house (they all seem to look like this unless you stay in a Premier Inn or Travelodge which cost two or three times the price ) I would definitely recommend this one.
