Just stayed the one night with my son. Found the hotel very convenient for the station and confirm other reviews that its only about 5 minutes from the station and some 20 minutes walk into the main town. Walked into town for our evening meal and found a reasonable selection of restaurants at typically London'ish prices (yes we are from the North and don't understand paying a small mortgage for four prawns and two calamari on a 'starter to share'). The breakfast in the hotel however was basic but enjoyable and with a reasonable selection of items. My son panicked at the lack of bacon but felt able to console himself with extra sausages.
The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful which made our first visit to this hotel and area completely stress free.
The bus to the Harry Potter studies leaves from the station making this hotel a good base to work from. The hotel reception provided us with a timetable for this service.
I didn't use the hotel wifi as I carry my own portable dongle; The 3 network reception in the room was excellent.
We would definitely stay here again.
