“Value for money budget hotel”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

This is a budget hotel with no frills. The room is clean and of decent size. the best part of the hotel is its excellent location - just 4min walk to Earl's Court station which is just 3 stops from the main shopping / theater area! There is a laundry shop and 2 convenient stores nearby. There are lots of coffee places around the area for breakfast if you do not fancy the hotel's 8.50 pounds buffet. Note that the hotel is location within the low-rise white building that runs along W.Cromwell Rd, rather than a building by itself. Look out for flags bearing its logo!

Room Tip: no complains!

Stayed in a family room which was large clean and the beds were exceptionally comfortable with a king size & two singles. Staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. Breakfast was fantastic for £8.50pp with the two kids eating free. Only niggle was that the dining room was too small to accommodate the many people at breakfast. The area was very nice with Earls Court road around the corner offering a bustling vibrant high street atmosphere. A safe place to bring the family back to if you're out late too. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for a short sightseeing/shopping trip to London with our 10 year old daughter. The hotel is in a great location, 5 mins from Earls Court station and was very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We had a family room on the first floor at the back of the hotel which was really quiet. The all you can eat breakfast was very good, great value (soya milk was also available, which isn't always the case) and up to 2 kids get theirs free with an adult. Breakfast room did get very busy but staff were efficient at clearing tables etc. The towels were a bit on the thin side, there was no free wifi and tea/coffee but no biscuits, but then it is a budget chain and the emphasis was defintiely on making you feel welcome. Overall great value and we wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Family of four (children aged 5 and 9) stayed for 5 nights in a huge family room on top floor for sightseeing in London and surrounding areas. Fantastic location for Earls court underground station and Kensington Olympia train station. Lovely comfy bed to come back to after a long day sightseeing. Breakfast is amazing value - the choice is fantastic! The only thing we didn't like was the fact that the windows do not open in room (not even slightly) and we don't like constant air conditioning. Maybe windows could be opened with a stopper on so they can only open so far? That is just our personal preference though so don't let that put you off what is a clean, good value, friendly, base for your trip to London. We plan to come again next year and will definitely stay here again!!

Excellent service and staff, couldn't fault them. The room was a good size, pleasantly surprised when we entered, and bathroom was spotless. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Brilliant breakfasts. Found the location very convenient - you are about a 10 minute stroll to Earls Court tube, and there is a large 24 hour Tesco 5 minutes stroll along Cromwell Road. There is a very quiet bar - which we found ideal, while our 11 year old made use of the very good (though not free) wi-fi.
Our only two tiny niggles were the shower in our room drained slowly (maybe because we were on the LG?), and the coffee at the bar could have been better - though at breakfast it was fine.

Stayed here with family including a baby. From the time we arrived the staff were warm and friendly which continued until our departure. All of our rooms were clean, had good storage and the family rooms are large and more than what is needed for a short stay.
Or rooms overlooked West Cromwell Road and a flight path to Heathrow but sounds were neglible both day and night.
The buffet breakfast had a good choice and of good quality. We had dinner on one night and we were not expecting too much from a budget hotel but we were wrong. There was a good choice, including a child menu. the food was of excellent quality and enjoyed by all. Be aware that the child portions are large and more adult size.
There is one bus service into central London which runs frequently.
Would stay here again.

Booked 2 family rooms for my wife and I with one teenager and three pre-teens for 4-day London sightseeing break on the way back to Canada from the Isle of Man. Earl's Court tube is just a few minutes walk - very convenient for all major venues. This hotel was a very good decision - would certainly use it again. I felt the price was at the higher end of the 'budget hotel' range, but this is better than most budget hotels. Food choice is good and quality excellent. Rooms clean and spacious. Staff very warm and friendly - all of them.

Room Tip: There are a few rooms on the lobby level - we had one and found it very convenient, avoiding stairs...
