It was a fine hotel nothing really to complain about per say. It was a bit of a distance into the main part of London. Not really a problem for myself because I was traveling alone, but I think with a larger group it may have been a bit of a hassel. The rooms were fairly clean (although my shower leaked a little bit) and the beds comfortable. They do have wifi in the lobby of the hotel and for a 5 pound deposit you can bring an ethernet cord up to your room. However, in my room the ethernet outlet's were not working so I was unable to access internet up in my room...this is something they are getting fixed and they did apologize for the inconvenience. The breakfast was big and there was a lot of variety. I don't think it was anything top quality but it did the job well.
The best thing about the hotel was the great staff. They were very friendly and helpful. One day I came in carrying a lot of items and the man behind the desk helped carry everything up to the third floor, opening all my doors along the way without being asked.
I would not hesitate to stay here if other places were booked/if you are looking for budget place, but i think a person could find better.
