I spent 3 nights at BH this month - 3 nights B&B in this tremendous location for only £99, truly hard to beat.
Easy check in, and desk staff always courteous.
Good sized single room, arranged in a triptych with one other bedroom and the bathroom. Everything was well worn but very clean. Good shower pressure but the lavatory required a lot of cranking.
The bed was extremely comfortable, and the duvet cosy. Good amount of hanging and drawer space, though only 2 coat hangers. Plenty of power points. Courtesy kettle, decent size, and a regular supply of coffee, tea and milk.
The only down side was that there was no mirror in the room at all, so it was impossible to see how one looked before setting off. There was a small shaving/make up mirror in the bathroom, too high for me and anyway, no good for checking hemlines in.
The cooked breakfast - 6 items plus unlimited toast and coffee - was excellent: good value and very well cooked. Some of the nicest sausages I've ever had, and the yolks in the fried eggs stayed runny, despite the mass catering.
They happily kept my luggage for me after check in.
On easy bus routes, especially the RV1, which never seems to come up as an option on then TfL website but was a lovely route, right into Covent Garden.
Particularly easy for the Menier Chocolate Factory.
In truth, for a holiday holiday, I might choose something with just a hint more en suite about it but for a bargain weekend, I recommend Bankside unhesitatingly.
