Had to visit Croydon for a business trip, and needed a room at short notice. My employers paid for everything so I can't comment on value for money.
My work took place in Croydon Crown Court, which meant the hotel is ideally situated, as it is just across the road. This does mean that if you've got a room at the front of the hotel you have to look out on the court building, which to be perfectly honest looks like what I imagine the Statsi Headquarters was like in East Berlin circa 1970. I doubt it will ever get listed status, but who knows.
I stayed at the Jurys Inn, Croydon the previous night, and in many ways the hotels are very similar. The staff were excellent, friendly, and helpful. The hotel is clean, and is well presented. Breakfast is buffet style, and excellent. I didn't use any of the facilities, just stayed in the room, and left in the morning.
My only criticism would be the same as the Jurys Inn. The rooms need a programme of refurbishment and updating. This is probably only an issue of aesthetics, it wouldn't really affect whether you had a good nights sleep (which by the way, I did).
If you need a base in Croydon which is close to East Croydon railway station, and the crown court, the Croydon Park is an ideal choice.
