Average hotel that needs some tlc.
Pretty average for the price. Clean and comfortable room but all fittings are showing their considerable age. Breakfast was pretty limited compared to the local competition, but wasn’t too expensive. Staff were fine.

Dissapointing stay.
We arrived at 15.30pm to be told room still not available for check in and return again in 20-30 minutes. After a long time travelling and then sight seeing in London we were tired and hoping to rest and shower before heading back into London for 5pm. We were one of a group of people who were unable to check in at the same time. we arrived in room 210 to a room overlooking the noisy generators - whilst I appreciate a standard room does not entail a park view - when I asked at reception I was told that this was only rooms available for me. We then got to room to the air con saying fault - although still coming out with cold air. We had no towels so had to ask at reception - very quick service for housekeeping to bring though. After coming back to the hotel following a show, I ordered a hot chocolate at the bar which is on the menu - after one man looking and discussing with numerous staff I was told they are unable to do this. Therefore settling for a cold drink instead. The cooked breakfast was inedible - the bacon was piles of fat only. Sausages raw. Very very poor. For £12 pp I felt that the standard of food was poor and for this money I ate 2 slices of toast and a croissant - most expensive continental breakfast iv had in a long time! Another guest let themselves into our room at 9am - which I feel very worrying that other guests can access the rooms. I booked this hotel as a treat - but will be returning to premier inns as they seem much more reliable!

Room was very date, mould around the bath. Air conditioning did not work which was a nightmare on a very hot weekend in London. There was noise and banging all through the night.

Be sure to book the correct room
As a seasoned Business Traveler I was remiss in not checking the sq m size of the regular double room. Two 5'10" people were very squashed into the rooms facilities, when we laid in the bed our feet were right at the end, that meant that the space between the bed and the chest of drawers was minimal and when you passed in the duration of the night you touched their feet not ideal. The mattress on the bed was probably a memory foam fabric so the temperature was not conducive for sleep therefore we had very very little sleep. The staff were very helpful and friendly we would not fault them just not the stay we expected.
