A one night B&B. Big room and comfortable bed. Shower and loo ok but toilet seat kept coming adrift and the sink drain lever was missing so could not empty the sink. Sink and loo problems seem to happen frequently for us!! TV reception poor. Room could have done with a bedside cabinet and chair, plus, to plug the kettle in, you had to pull out a chest of drawers to reach the wall plug. Lovely to watch the Jumbo jets going over the hotel on approach to Heathrow. Friendly staff. Young manager, he was hands on, serving breakfasts and saw us off with a friendly smile and a handshake. The breakfast was fine, served to the side of the bar. Good choice and quick service. Giant TVs - we would have preferred the News to Frasier in the morning.

Room Tip: Side room to avoid road noise. Check loo seat, sink and kettle connection. Would stay here again.

Booked here to save travelling back to Norfolk late at night. Great value for money as it includes very nice breakfast. Single room, clean and ideal for short stay. Only short walk from Greenwich park. Would definitely use again when going to O2.

Stayed here as we were going to the O2 for a concert. The hotel is friendly, very clean, welcoming. The room was very clean, spacious. In the room was tea/coffee facility, tv. The bathroom had a lovely shower, which was nice and hot. We will go back to the hotel, when we go to another concert.

Had the warmest welcome ever from friendly and professional staff. Took me to my room. Room was tiny but with enormous wardrobe. I'd suggest losing the wardrobe and going for shelves and hooks. Evening meal in the bar was ok...salmon a little dry, but the breakfast omellette was delicious! Was worried when i saw amps arriving for the evening of live music but dudn't hear a thing in my room and slept soundly. Am returning in few weeks as impressed by location and service.

Booked this hotel as we had never looked around Greenwich before. It was beautifully clean, newly renovated I think.On arrival the receptionist, who was very pleasant and efficient, decided to allocate us a larger room on the side of the hotel and less noisy. The room was fine but needed a lamp shade and the bathroom would be challenging for anyone on the large side. It would have been useful to have another shelf somewhere, but plenty of drawer/wardrobe space. I found breakfast a bit wanting, you could only have one choice, i.e, cooked, cereals OR pastries and one hot drink, fruit juice was extra. Having said that my vegetarian breakfast was very nice. We appreciated being able to collect our bags later on the day we left, having visited Greenwich Market, The Old Maritime Musuem, and a trip on the Thames to the flood defences, very enjoyable, especially in the sunshine.

Room Tip: Ones on the side slightly quieter but this is on a busy road.

I booked two rooms nearly a year in advance and expected them to be on the same floor. However, one, quite a large room, was on the first floor, and the other , smaller, on the second. As can be seen on the photo, the rooms are basic, but at least they are clean. The power shower was good, but I hardly had enough room to sit on the toilet. Only BBC 1 and 2 were available. With one window open it was noisy, as the hotel is on a main road. The cooked breakfast was very good, but cold, as it was served on cold plates. How is it possible for a cook not to get the basics right....
