Reviewer: Dublin Family, 2 children
Review: The Photos of the bedrooms on their Website are not of the bedrooms we were in. I checked the other bedrooms, as I thought we may have pulled the short straw.
We were in 3 bedrooms over the 3 nights! Broken showers, lack of light bulbs, traffic noise, general grubbiness e.g.cigarette holes in the 'dining room' chairs. Work men in our bedroom fixing the curtains while we were in the bedroom!
Reception's explanation was 'it is a 3 star' what did you expect?
We paid for 2 out of the 3 nights and got the immpression that people frequently haggled about the price.
We have been visiting London for years and when I was a student I stayed in cleaner, better, accomodation.
