Rugiatu sesay, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Arrived to welcoming staff. The room was a superior twin room which was very clean and the beds very comfortable. The en-suite was a wet room with a good shower. It was a little small and I would have preferred the wash basin was inside the bathroom. However it wasn’t an issue that I would not stay again. Situated a 10 minute walk to Whitechapel tube which was convenient.
