We thought this hotel would be a good place to stay as it's not too far from transport into and around London. However, we were badly disappointed! We were a family of 5, sharing a triple and a double room. The triple room was spacious and clean with a newly refurbished shower en-suite, so at first we were quite satisfied. However, being the middle of winter, we did not appreciate having cold (and I mean freezing cold) showers! As we were there for two nights, we reported the problem to reception who said that would sort it out. There was hot water for one shower that evening, but then the following morning it was back to freezing water again - my husband went to complain and was told we could use another vacant room's facitilies. This meant wandering around the hotel in pj's etc, and again only sufficient luke warm water for one! The other half of our family experienced the exact same probem in their room! Absolutely NOT good enough.
Breakfast room was a bit of a bun fight to get a table, and also cutlery and crockery at a premium, so one had to keep asking staff for knives or tea cups etc. How the hotel copes when full I can not even imagine! Juices were watered down versions of the real thing, the toaster machine half toasted the bread, but if you ran the slice through a second time it was cremated, so neither option was brilliant! Not quite sure what was in the sausages but they tasted foul! (And to be honest, we are not a nit-picky bunch under normal circumstances!!)
On the plus side, we were able to leave bags in a locked baggage room which saved us lugging them around London on the day we left.
