“Nightmare”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2011

The staff, all one of them seemed helpful and were friendly, and the breakfast was fine, the rooms were
1. Dirty, carpet was sticky, yuk
2. Bathroom floor was broken and dirty.
3. Could not open drawers as bedside table was in way, and could not be moved (everything was crammed in)
4. Wardrobe door broken
5. One pillow each, asked for two more but only got one as said there were no more spare!!!!
6.Hotel arranged taxi and a price, to take us (4) too and back to 02, agreed £50.00, however on arriving at 02 driver demanded £70.00 were said hotel agreed price, after speaking to his boss, agreed to £35.00 paying rest on return, but you guessed they never showed up, we phoned firm but they kept hanging up, phoned hotel to explain they said they'd phone us back, but didn't, so we were stranded at 02 at midnight!!!! we finally got home with another Taxi. Hotel were most un helpful when we got back. So don't book taxi with hotel!!

I work in the Tourism Industry In NZ and i have never ever slept in this kind of accommodation ever. Even our Backpackers are nicer.

When we arrived the outside of the hotel was quite nice and as it was a very hot day and i had just had a 30 hr flight we couldnt wait to get in the hotel, looking forward to some nice air conditioned rooms. Boy were we wrong.. The hotel was almost as hot inside as it was outside. No air con at all. So we collected our Room Keys and asked where the elevator was. There was none. So up a flight and a half of teeny tiny steps we headed to our rooms. Well it was the bed and a small wardrobe. Not to bad for budget acc. Bathroom seemed ok as well. BUT it was as hot if not HOTTER than outside. With one small window to let in a stiff breeze, of slightly cooler air. As the night progressed i tossed and turned as i had to leave the window open to be able to breathe but with the usual drunks outside playing soccer untill 1amish. The sink plug leaked and the tap water was lukewarm. The shower was pathetic a dribble instead of even flow. Not to mention it vaired from ice cold to Scalding Hot. Very Unimpressed over all. Would not stay here again if i was paid to. As well as a bum off the sreets kept accosting customers of the hotel and asking for money and the staff didnt do anything.

My friend and I stayed here for one night in a twin en-suite room. The room was clean and spacious, and the shower was better than I'd expect for the level of establishment.
There is plenty of parking at the front and back of the hotel.
The staff at reception were friendly and helpful.
The only negative is that there wasn't enough seating for breakfast, it was only in a small room, so we couldn't have any. When we looked at what was on offer we weren't too upset that we couldn't eat, as it didn't look very appetizing.
Also there wasn't a lift so I had to drag my suitcases up some narrow stairs.
But overall, good value hotel.

Im suprised at reading these terrible reviews !!! I thought our room was clean and fairly new looking. Bathroom was ok too. We only stayed for one night whilst we attended Love Box Festival but it served its purpose(comfortable sleep & Breakfast). Staff seemed friendley. For the money and what we wanted it for it was fine !!!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms 1 & 2 were fine

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel for the night as it was 5 miles from the O2, the first impressions of the room and bathroom were quite nice however when i went to have a shower the water was coming out freezing and there was a smell of what can only be described as a dirty fish tank / sewage smell coming from the shower.

The shower also wasn't draining either, my boyfriend went to reception to complain, a man who could hardly speak English came up to the room to unblock the shower which made the smell even worse and the dirt, hair and other deposits that came out of the shower plug were disgusting, when we advised him of the nasty smell coming out the shower his answer was to bring us a bottle of nasty smelling air freshener, he also persisted to say that the water was warm when it clearly wasn't, we also had to ask him for the TV remote which for some strange reason was at reception he seemed very reluctant for us to have it. The attitude from him was that he didnt care either. It so gross i ended up washing my hair in the sink and couldn't even close the toilet door to use the loo as the smell was so bad.

We could hear noise from the other rooms as well, people walking up the corridors and moving about upstairs, we had to keep the toilet door shut all night to make sure that fish tank smell didnt come in the room, It was a very lucky thing that we actually missed breakfast the next morning as i cant imagine what that would have been like.

Again went to wash my hair in the sink the next morning as the thought of even touching that shower made me feel sick the water again was freezing,

we couldn't check out quicker and def wouldn't be coming back. if you are thinking of staying in a hotel down this road please make sure you dont stay at this one.
