Good value cheap (for London) hotel, with relatively easy access to LCY. There is not much around in the way of restaurants without driving. A pub is about 10 minutes walk away. The hotel does have snack foods and beer and wine etc, as does the petrol station on the corner next door.
The room itself is "cosy", the separate toilet does not seem to have an exhaust fan! And the shower stall is just big enough. No plug for the sink, so shaved in the shower :(
At one stage the smoke alarm went off for a few seconds, rousing me from a light sleep! A bit later as I was dressing somebody (housemaid? guest?) opened the door, but then rapidly closed it.
Anyway, the bed is firm and only 2 pillows, but that was ok. The lounge downstairs was a mess in the morning after people having breakfast and nobody cleaning up. Free wifi throughout is a nice change from Aussie!
