Good 6.0
We stayed 2 nights, the room size is fine, but the bathroom is so tiny, and the beds are too soft. The second day when we came back from the day trip , our room door was open, luckily nothing is lost.

Very good 8.0
Staff was nice, room was big for a normal London hotel room size. Old decor but that was expected. Not too noisy, got a good night sleep with earplugs on without waking up.

An okay hotel
Overall this was an okay stay for one night. Staff friendly, location excellent for underground. Room very basic, old furniture, bed not that comfortable. No amenities, TV, or kettle. Did for one night.
Gordon, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Cosy and quiet but improvements and water needed
Clean, tidy, quiet, warm shower and close to the Royal Albert Hall, which are the main things I was needing. Areas for improvement, especially considering the cost are; NO DRINKING WATER FROM TAPS/no kettle etc. needs to be made clear on advert/booking form to help prepare for visit, and provide mineral water per person next to bed. Bed throw was clean but stained, pillows were thin and only one each and the continental breakfast quality and choice of drinks could have been better. Coffee was, I'm afraid, dreadful and there were no herbal teas, just a green tea so not great for decaf drinkers. Fruit juice would have gone down 'so' well after not having water/kettle. No TV but I liked that - no risk of conditioning or noise! Customer service and friendliness was great so a few amendments could make this amazing! Plus the wee Jack Russel made me smile :-)
Nikki, gb1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
This place was lovely for me and my partner. We stayed 1 night and was very happy with our stay. Less than a 5 minute walk to the underground. The people were lovely and warming. I would definitely stay again.
