Well that is the big question. I stayed in PI on Monday and HI on Tuesday

Simple answer is if this is same price stay here.

There are 150 rooms on 3 floors but in a very odd U shape with the most vile grey wallpapered pillars in the way . They really are awful.

The rooms are nicer than P I. Better TVs. The beds are smaller and lower and thats suited me. I dont like the very high beds in the PI rooms. The decor is nicer and best of all the bathroom knocks spots of the PI. I especially liked the blue low level lights. No being blinded in middle of the night.

Simple one touch locks to get in the room.

Bonus - Breakfast is included so that saves £6 on PI. Its nothing special but coffee toast and scrammbled eggs was fine for me. PI breakfasts seemed to be ignored due to cost.

Downside. NO FREE WIFI not even in the bar. no stupid is that and its £7 for 24 hors whereas PI is free 30 minutes then £3 for 24 hours. For most people the 30 mins is enough to check your email or facebook. upside £g coverage was good so I just used my phone. I could have used the free wifi in the pub next door.

Overall HI is much nicer than PI. I would always prefer HI but company pays so its all down to price. Prem INN prices vary wildly depending how far in advance you book. HI seems to be £99 as standard but cheaper vai Hot deals hotel .com etc

If you take a look at Google Street View all you can see of this hotel is a building site. Well I'm glad to say they finished the building work.

In much the same way that people living in Acton insist that it's West Chiswick or East Ealing, so this Hotel claims to be South Wimbledon, despite being almost opposite Colliers Wood Tube station. In terms of location it's not that bad in that you can get to Central London via the tube in about 30 minutes, it has parking and it's easy enough to get to by car or bus.

I stayed in the recently constructed side of the hotel and the room was much better than I'd expected. I'd always though of the Holiday Inn 'Express' hotels as more motel than hotel, fighting toe-to-toe with Premier Inn and the likes. Well this room was superb, stylish and very well maintained. In fact the whole hotel was very plush and clean without being too intimidating or over-the-top.

I'd certainly go again, given half the chance.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the newly constructed section of the hotel.

This is a relatively new hotel which is directly opposite Colliers Wood Tube Station. It takes approximately 20-25 minutes via tube from Central London.

I made enquiries via the online chat facility before booking to check what the "free breakfast" included, I was told it was continental and that they did not serve hot food. I was pleasantly suprised to discover this was incorrect and they did indeed serve sausages, beans and scrambled eggs. The restaurant was clean and well run.

We asked for a baby cot on arrival and when we returned later in the evening it was half setup in the room, you know how you need a degree to put these things up. However there was no linen with the cot, so I had to go down and sort this out. I was oddly offered a pillow, 9 month olds don't usually have pillows in cots but I guess just an education thing.

Also agree that being London the emergency services do use their sirens 24 hours a day and can be noisy in the night, with a front facing room.

In all great simple and basic stay with a great breakfast that doesn't get the promotion it deserves.

Stayed on business for one night. Room was clean and well presented. Bar/Restaurant area was nice, though service was very slow....seems the check in staff do both, or so it would appear - as i waited 10minutes to be served! Food was of a good quality, though if you didn't want to eat at the hotel there are plenty of nearby restaurants and 2 large supermarkets within walking distance. Breakfast had a decent choice of food, all self service.
Hotel is right across the road from the Colliers Wood tube station, so easy access to London via Northern line. Would stay again, as good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are quieter as they are further away from the main road

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights. Hotel very clean , rooms confortable. Breakfast could be improved for europeans, we are not used to eat beans at breakfast. Maybe some cheese would do. Location is just across Collier Wood Tube Station on Northern Line and very easy to visit London. Some good restaurants in the area, and a Sainsbury supermarket.The only minus was losing my sons tedybear when the bedcloth was changed.

This French run hotel is conveniently located. It is across from the Colliers Wood tube stop. Buses to the village of Wimbledon and its rail station are a few minutes walk and frequent. A large Sainsbury supermarket and Marks and Spencer department store (both with a deli and take out meals) are also close. Hotel is very clean. Rooms are small by U.S./Canadian standards. Complimentary breakfast is much better than U.S./Canadian Holiday Inn Expresses. Unfortunately, the hotel seems to cater to large groups of French teenagers. They were often loud. This hotel is a good choice if you can tolerate the occassional soccer ball being kicked arouns the hallway and excessive noise levels at breakfast.

Our family stayed here for two nights on a short holiday in London. It was a bit out of the central London area (about a half hour's train ride from the theater district). One thing to note - the hotel is actually near the Collier's Wood tube station, not Wimbledon as we had thought from its name. The room had decent space for the four of us (2 adults, 1 teenager, 1 younger) and was clean. When we checked in, we had to wait for at least 10 minutes while the only clerk was on the phone handling a reservation problem. That was annoying, but finally a manager came over to check us in. The rooms were alright, although strangely our bedsheets were not fitted and kept coming off the bed. Otherwise the beds were pretty comfortable. We had a small problem opening the safe int he room, but the manager came up quickly to resolve it (oddly, he could have told us what to do over the phone, but came up instead.) The breakfast buffet was standard and included cereals, breads, and a little fruit. Overall it was a decent place to stay out of the main central area, for less than the exorbitant prices you pay closer to the center of London.

Room Tip: We had a room near the lift, which was a bit too noisy at times. Try to get one further away.
