This functional hotel is located on an estate containing a few restaurants, a cinema complex and a leisure centre in suburban North London. There are very few hotel options in the N3/N12 area, so if you need to be in this area, you may still end up "choosing" this hotel.
We were due to arrive very late and phoned the hotel every 15 minutes from 3pm until 6pm to confirm our reservation and warm the staff of our late arrival. For three hours the calls remained unanswered. Either the hotel is seriously under-staffed or they were all outside enjoying the sunshine.
when we finally got through, we were reassured that a late arrival would be no problem. We did check in with no difficulty, but rather than the King size bed we had booked, the room had a conventional double plus a truckle bed for a third person.
London was experiencing an unusual heatwave, so we tried to open the windows. Only one opened, and only about 10cm. There was some kind of free- standing air filter which served only to move the very hot air around and was noisy. It was a hot and unpleasant night.
In the morning I tried to operate the shower, but the fixture which should have switched the water flow from bath to shower was missing. I tried to phone through to reception but the phone had no information giving the reception number. I tried 0 and 9 but got no response, so had to get dressed and go to reception in person. The member of staff agreed immediately that there was a problem and offered me a pair of pliers to pull a tiny screw to operate the shower.
The staff are pleasant and, when specifically asked, quite helpful, but the hotel is shabby and poorly maintained, certainly not worth the mid range price they charge.
