Reviewed May 27, 2010

Stayed here on monday night and it was fine, its location is great right next to a selection of restaurants offering a range of things to eat from a burger to an italian.

Bus stop right outside and if you need to go to the tube station its 263 and costs £2.

Hotel staff were all pleasant check in took 5 minutes and questions we had were answered effieciently., Room was massive, we had recently stayed elsewhere paid more for a tiny room so was impressed. Paid £59 through octopus travel so most impressed once again. The bed was big and comfy although on the hottest day of the year we had to kick off the duvet as it was a bit big and bulky.

Breakfast and parking were included in this price and we went to eat about 8.45am just before it was due to finish and it was still fresh and hot and tasty, although as usual toasters are sooo slow your breakfast got a little chilly waiting for it.
Checking out was fine and simple once again pleasent staff and a check out of 11am was a bonus when your on a leisure break so thank you for that.

All in all a great clean hotel ideally situated with pleasent staff and good surroundings

Venue was ok for a short break, little bits of maintenance needed. Breakfast was good and plentiful. However, I was staying with a 9 & 11 year old and the extra fold out bed was not supplied as stated in reservation. Kids were tired on arrival so just made do with what was there. Not a comfortable night.
I think try as they might in other areas, but they should get the most basic of amenities right 'a bed'!!!!.
I had contacted their customer services 'Choice Hotels' about a query prior to arrival, but still had no response to this day.
If you stay with kids, go prepared, take an extra!!

Wow, this is awful and with young kids I really wish you had told as soon as you arrived so we could have quickly sorted out such an important matter.....it would have taken 5 minutes maximum.

So sorry, but pleased everything else was good and you enjoyed breakfast.

We have over 20,000 people stay at the hotel each year and we need to ensure all our guests [including the young ones] get a great nights sleep. That why we have replaced every bed in the last 6 months.

So sorry.

Regards

We stayed here at this time last year when our youngest son was doing the London Marathon. It's a few mins drive from East Finchley tube station on the northern line (loads of parking here for £1 per day on Sundays) and close to the end of the M1 for a quick get away home to the Wirral. It all worked well last year, so we did the same for the 2010 marathon. Easy to locate on the main road near the Vue cinema/restaurant area on the main road. Plenty of free parking. Satnav took us right to the hotel. Fast check in and friendly and efficient staff. We had rooms 332 & 336, which were nice and quiet. No great views from any room, but it is Finchley. Rooms are standard lodge type, but clean and with everything you need. Good quality king sized bed. Plenty of storage. The outside window would not lock, but not really a security issue on the second floor. Bathroom has a good sized bath and in-bath shower. The hot water was blisteringly hot and could be dangerous for small children - the hotel thermostat needs lowering a bit. The adjacent Cafe Rouge provided us with a fine evening meal with pleasant and attentive staff. 2 min walk to the Vue cinema. Only problem we had was that the loo took an age to fill up, so we topped up the cister from the shower head to spped it up. Room 332.

Breakfast was good quality for a lodge, with fried and scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, beans & tomatoes. Plus the usual cereals, juices etc. Nice filter coffee.

Check out was fast and efficient. Free wifi in all rooms. Apart from the loo niggle, we slept well and had no complaints. We would use it again.

We live in Finchley and stayed here for a night while our heating was being repaired. This is a thoroughly good, effecient, clean, pleasant, little place, very similar to Premier Inn standard but a little cheaper.

Don't expect frills but there is nothing at all wrong with this place. One good extra was that residents get a discount at the nearby Cafe Rouge for meals.

Our room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was fine and the breakfast was a good self service, eat all your want type buffet.

If i ever had to stay for a night away from home and wanted somewhere basic and local, I would not hesitate to stay here.

I've stayed here a couple of times as its handy for the M1 and has lots of free parking. Its a standard chain hotel, clean a nd functional. Situated in Finchley North London about 7 miles from the centre, its next to a leisure park with bowling alley, cinema and a number of chain restaurants so if you're staying for one night only theres no need to go to central london.

If you do need to go into the centre, the nearest tube station is East Finchley on the Northern Line. Thats about a 25 minute walk, though there is a bus which runs every 10 minutes or so (less often on sunday). Once on the tube it takes about 20 minutes to get to the west end.

Breakfast was included in the internet rate I got and was full english on a buffet basis--it was ok, not great, but buffets seldom are.

My only problem with the hotel was the bed which was one of the least comfy I think I've ever encountered. I could feel the springs/ ridges of the mattress and had to lay on top of the quilt to make it more comfy .

In summary, Ok chain hotel and not a bad price for proximity to London. Ok for a night but no longer.

Thanks for your review and please you use our hotel.

All our rates inc a free cooked breakfast and we do our best in a very busy hotel to provide the best breakfast we can...particularly when most of our competitor charge extra for breakfast or only inc a very limited "continental" breakfast.

Regarding beds, we are part way through replacing every bed in the hotel and this will be completed by Easter.

Regarding where the hotel is.....well we never claimed to be central London, and most of our guests get a taxi to a direct underground station.

Thanks for the comments and hope you enjoy the new beds.

Kind regards

This hotel is very chic and clean. The services are very good, the breakfast was varied. The only inconvenience was the location. The hotel is too far from the city centre. We took 1 bus and 2 underground lines.

Thanks for your review, but moving the hotel is one of those things that is outside of our control.

Many guests, particularly if there are several in their party, opt to take a taxi to a direct underground station.
