I'm pretty sure this hotel is illegal and should be shut down. Initial impressions were ok with exception of the staff who obviously don't like working on reception and are not capable of offering a smile or polite welcome. Room again was initially ok due to being newly redecorated but with cheap and already wearing carpets along with very very poor quality beds and horrible mattress protectors I then started finding fault with everything. No instructions for the worse hotel safes I've ever seen, no robe hook, no bath and very poor quality shower. Bathroom again looks good and was clean but shower almost useless. Big TV on the wall but again cheap rubbish and pointless due to pure quality aerial signal.
The hotel does have aircon but when we reported ours wasn't working we were told they don't turn it on until summer - where does it say that on your marketing material!
The worse bit was the so called complimentary breakfast. I have never seen as many people crammed into such small areas and do question whether a visit from London fire brigade would result in the hotels closure. I have 2 young children who had to stand and eat cereal whilst being constantly being bumped in to due to all the tables being full and all pushed up together in rows. Naturally we didn't hang around to experience the limited cooked breakfast. When I asked if additional seating elsewhere was available I was informed by the reception no it's busy so we'd have to wait and then promptly turned his back on me. I shudder to think what would happen if a quick evacuation was necessary. Why offer complimentary breakfast if you can't seat your guests? Surely it makes sense to charge to avoid a cattle market!
