Stayed three nights at the Collingham.
Good standard of accommodation, very well-equipped kitchen and living room. Friendly and courteous staff. But there are issues which need addressing:
Bathroom was of a fair standard but the shower had barely any water pressure and was barely functional. Unpleasant to wrestle with a trickle of water when getting ready for meetings in the morning.
No toiletries provided whatsoever which is a major negative for any hospitality outfit. Requested shampoo and toothpaste late at night but was told I'd have to go to the shop. This is unacceptable!
Internet costs £9 per day per device (can't have laptop and phone on same account) which is extortionate considering the room rates. To have 900 channels of free TV but charge for internet is a bit backwards.
Bed was really uncomfortable, didn't sleep well. Also it gets very hot in the apartments so I had to sleep with the window open (in March!).
I can't fault the location or the people, but some of their amenities really need a rethink.
They also don't seem to actually read reviews on TripAdvisor, just reply with the same canned responses every time.
