Ramada London North M1
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Borehamwood
Reviewed August 6, 2007

Stayed at this hotel on Fri/Sat nights for a family (2 adults, 2 children) weekend in London. Superb value. We booked through laterooms.com and paid £49.50 each night for the room (including breakfast!!!!). Room was a decent size and both that and the bathroom were spotless. Breakfast choice was ample. Drove a relatively short distance to East Finchley tube station (parking £1 all day on Sat and Sun) and after a 20 minute journey on the Northern Line we were in central London. Fantastic. Would definitely use this hotel again.

Great location and very reasonable for London. You do need a car as in affect it is a motorway service area and you cannot walk anywhere (or risk getting arrested ). Hotel is clean, brand new and cheap and very handy for Central London. I stayed here quite a bit when working in London.

Excellent room of good proportions limited hanging space but very comfortable and clean Tea and coffee maker and good air-conditioning...I have had worse rooms in 4* hotels..the only downside is the position ..OK if you have transport..and the breakfast was excellent and all for a VERY cheap rate on a Saturday night,,would definitely go again

This hotel works great for a London stay. I booked through Sidestep and paid almost nothing for it ($50 US). You can walk to the Apex roundabout (1 mile), catch a bus to the Edware station and then into the tube and all over London. The hotel can set you up with a taxi company that will let you call them and get back to the hotel at night for 5 pounds. Plus the hotel is very nice, as nice as any European hotel and super cheap. I would definitely recommend this place. Get them to put you on the train side of the hotel, the cars are too loud on the freeway side. You DO NOT need a car to stay at this hotel if you are willing to walk 1 mile...

This place is beautiful. I stayed there for 4 nights and was extremely pleased with my stay.

Its very new and modern, you can tell when you walk in. The eastern European staff are very helpful, no complaints. I will say i am very low maintenance, and it was just me by myself....I did not stay for any breakfasts, or need to use the wifi connection so I cant comment on any of those type of extras.

But the single room comes with 2 twin beds together..great!
The rooms are very clean, very big, and modern. Bathroom was amazing (better than mine at home) and plenty of clean towels and linen.

Just the size and how modern the place was really suprised me.

But a warning..it is ONLY accessible off the M1 motorway...so if you dont have a car, it would be pretty akward getting there and going anywhere during your stay....hotel provides free parking so its ok.
And the guy who had his car broken into...he looked like he was parked in the rest stop parking area, around the other side of the hotel, there is parking exclusively for hotel guests (and there is a security guard posted out there at night) I mean there are BMW's, Mercedes and God knows what else parked in the lot, i felt very safe parking my rented Nissan there.

And I couldnt hear any traffic noise from the motorway...also supposedly theres a rail line that passes right behind it, and i didnt hear that a single time.

I was there to just sightsee around London, so it was great as from the hotel, you just get on the M1 for a few minutes, off at the first exit, and a short drive to the mill hill or finchley underground stations (its 2.50 pounds to park your car there for the day...cheap)....maybe a 20 minute drive in total. and a 30 or so minute underground ride to the heart of london.

Theres a nice looking restaurant at the lobby area, and a nice looking bar with plasma TV's.

The rest stop next door is also pretty convenient...you can pick up toiletry items, snacks, magazines, etc theres also a burger king, and another restuarant where you can order more traditional english food (lamb shank for dinner, full english hot breakfast) also a mobile phone store where i picked up a UK sim card and phone charger which i forgot to pack.

So if you have a car, pick up a road map so you can find the underground stations and stay in this hotel!!

We chose to stay at this hotel after reading TripAdvisor reviews, both good and bad, and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and helpful, whatever their nationality. Breakfast was very good and fresh and the dining room was kept clean all the time. The bedroom was clean, well-equipped and comfortable and the bathroom was fine, except for the difficult-to-use soap mentioned before but that's a minor problem. The location is good if you don't mind driving for fifteen to twenty minutes to the nearest Tube station (Edgware, Mill Hill or Stanmore). We were worried about the car but we've had our vehicle damaged in France outside a hotel so it's likely to happen anywhere. We would definitely stay at the Days Hotel again.

I just got back from my stay in London, and had mixed feelings about this hotel. I guess overall I didn't like it, because I wouldn't stay there again. However, I didn't feel ripped off and thought that it wasn't bad for what I paid---about $50 US Dollars a night (including their buffet breakfast).

The rest stop itself that houses the hotel seems new, but not very good. The Burger King has a sign saying that they accept Mastercard, but they wouldn't accept mine. Ghetto.

There was broken glass in the parking lot, obviously from smashed windows. Maybe from the guy who wrote the review about his car being broken into? I found it odd that the same glass was there when I checked in, and still there days later when I checked out. I had no problems with my car being parked there whatsoever.

The front desk staff aren't rude, but they aren't very nice either. They are clueless when it comes to explaining things that should be simple, like internet access. I should have left my laptop at home, I didn't use it all.

The rooms are ok, but they use liquid soap in the bathroom, which is extremely irritating to shower with. They also didn't refill them properly a couple of times. One day the hot water wasn't working, but they fixed it quickly.

Twice I came back to the room and the TV connection was disabled. I plugged it back in and it worked fine. Why would the people making up the room unhook the TV? Seems kind of odd, but they didn't mess with anything else.

If this location is good for you, try to get the lowest possible price and take your chances.
