“Don't stay here ”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

This place is filthy, one room dirtier than the next. The bed "looked" clean, but it wasn't. The bathroom at least seemed clean, but they keep the lights on in them to ward off cockroaches apparently. I didn't expect luxury, but are carpets vacuumed this decade a luxury? The walls were grimy and the baseboards coated with itchy neglect. This place was dirty, depressing, and frankly scary.

Forgot to mention that my room door wasn't locked when I got there and people (employees/permanent residents) seem to hang around the hallways skeeving everyone out.

I would like to forget I ever stayed here.

After reading other reviews about this hotel I was dreading staying here, we went to watch groves vs froch at wembley and this was the cheapest place we could find to stay. After finally finding it, (entrance is between 2 shops) we parked dwn the side street, which if you have a blue badge, like myself, you can park in the residents parking all night for free! Walking in, there's a good few stairs you have to walk up to get to reception. We checked in, and stayed in room 213, double ensuite, quite small but enough room for the 2 of us to move about, has toilet with shower , very clean and tidy. Staff were polite/friendly and in the morning we went straight down to their kitchen area and was offered a hot breakie, as well as helping yourself to juice/coffee&tea & cereals. Can't complain for £54 !!

This was booked as it is closed to London Heathrow Airport. On the other, hand Central London only 30 min and very good transportation to all other cities. All staffs were very helpful and cooperative. Large room with clean bed linen and housekeeping staff cleaned room every day. Rooms are tidy and clean and can easily be shared that type of room. Good value for money as well.

Hotel is above shops on main high street. Parking is a 10 minute walk away at the back of a shop, but costs only £2 per day. Rooms were tidy and clean. There is a Flat screen TV in the room which had all the channels tuned in. Walls were quite thin so could hear other people talking. Breakfast was adequate and was served very quickly. Dining room was quite small so you may find that you have to wait to sit down.

After arriving at the accommodation we were greeting with road works, drilling, dust and traffic. Once in we noticed old frayed carpet leading to a unmanned desk after locating someone we were told only one room was ready this was at 12.30. We all proceeded to the room to find a lady hovering in a very basic room. After viewing the room we notice curtains hanging of the rail, black used chewing gum on the window sill, dirty shower, toilet roll holder broken a red pest control box in the corner of the room. Kettle with cups no tea or coffee no spoons. Litter on the landing. After complaining we were told we could not get our money back as we booked through booking.com so we were pretty much stuck with accommodation we also decided not to use the shower. We are regular travellers and never experience accommodation like this ever!
