Don’t go to this hotel
The room we were in was at the front of the hotel, very very nosey. Out from all sites, therefore spent a fortune on tube, taxis, and buses. The breakfast and room was very dam basic, for the price there were charging , definitely would not return.
William, gb3 night family trip
Good 6.0
the room was smallish but fine. The problem I had was the double bed had two mattresses put together on it so the middle of the mattress was uncomfortable. The a/c was good and the bathroom and bedroom clean. Breakfast was buffet - not great - what you would expect scrambled eggs sausage , cereal and bread/croissants....not a huge choice. Basically it was fit for the purpose ....

Great hotel and location for Wembley visits
Great hotel for a trip to Wembley. Just one stop on the Met line makes this hotel an affordable option. We were on the road side and it can get a bit noisy one the traffic levels rise in the rush hour. If you're a light sleeper see if there is a room further from the road. 5 stars from me as it wasn't a problem.
Neil, gb1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Improving hotel
Used this hotel on a number of occasions. Managed to secure a roof to the rear of the hotel which is much quieter. The breakfast offer has also improved. As always the staff were very helpful and friendly
