We have just return from a wonderful (very) long weekend in London. We based ourselves 4 in Jurys Inn Croydon and I must say we were very happy overall with our choice. Having lived in Croydon in the late 80s/early 90s - it was a pilgrimage of sorts for us.
First of all the hotel rate was excellent - €320 for 4 nights for 2 of us. The hotel is a few minutes walk from East Croydon railway station - which gets you into London Bridge or Victoria in 15 mins - on the fast train. We were a short stroll from a great selection of shops/restaurants and bars. I think this was one of the first breaks we have had that we didn't hire a car - the location and local transport were so good.
Our room was lovely - yes you can see signs that it could do with a decor update - but everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Even though we were on the 12th floor - we still needed to keep the windows closed tightly to keep out the traffic noise early in the morning. This was not an issue as the air conditioning was powerful. The bed was my only gripe. It was the smallest double bed I have ever slept in. Room service was extremely efficient - it was usually complete by 10am. each day. Not good if you wanted I lie in though!!!!!!
The free wifi (all over the hotel) was really fast - you just needed to get a new code every 24 hours. Breakfast was also included in our rate. There was a great selection of hot and cold food (buffet style) - which was constantly being replenished. I couldn't fault the food. I agree with other posters that it can be a bit hit or miss - looking for cutlery, plates etc. They don't seem to have a dedicated restaurant supervisor on duty at breakfast either - which would help.
All the staff we encountered were really friendly. Anything we asked for - they delivered. This even started weeks before our arrival when we made several room requests. I would return to this hotel and I would recommend it. It is a luxurious 'pampering' hotel - but then we didn't pay for this. Great all round good value hotel in a brilliant location.
