This hotel is excellently situated for Blackheath Village and Greenwich. The price is very reasonable for a London hotel in such a location with on-site free parking. we stayed two nights with two very young children and found the room and bathroom very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and always responded well to any questions or requests. On our arrival, quite late in the evening, the security guard went to the rear car park to check if there was space to park (although other's parking meant we were woken at midnight to move our car). The breakfast was good with a good selection at the English breakfast buffet and some good continental selections including mini pastries and charcuterie.
The downsides were few, but we ordered some food from room service in the evening and it was not great food (fish and chips). When we woke relatively late in the morning, our shower was also running tepid, which wasn't what we were expecting and then had a longer than normal queue to get into breakfast. Parking on-site is difficult with few spaces, but it is free.
Overall, the pluses outweighed the minuses and a good sized clean room, with friendly, helpful staff with a good breakfast is, to us, much more important (and difficult to find) than the few negatives mentioned.
