We stayed here for one night after an international flight back to the UK and paid over £100 for what we were not told at the time of booking was in an annex across the road from this small-ish hotel.
The room (No2) was down a small tight staircase in the basement and we had difficulty getting suitcases through doors and into the small room where there was little space to put them, far less open them.
Outside the window of the room (which faced the street) there was a ladder lying on the ground which I took to be the means of escape in case of a fire in this annex. Hmmm, how would small children or elderly and/or obese adults be expected to negotiate this and over the top of the fence above a wall, especially in the dark and/or heavy rain, snow, sleet, hail etc - not very well I suspect.
Is that an approved means of escape?
Again, the breakfast room back across the road in the main building was small with far too many people in there. I have never experienced such a cramped breakfast or dining room.
The food was OK and the staff friendly enough though and the room was clean and I could smell fresh paint somewhere.
On booking in during the evening of the 5th March, the young man, on my enquiring, told me there were 52 rooms including the annex and that they were pretty well full that night.
At even £100 per room, this equates to somewhere between £5,000 and £6,000 and it appears from the website that many rooms are much dearer at £123, £153 and £168 so we are talking large sums of money here, even by London standards.
I know we will not be staying there again, though many will because of the location.
