Rob, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
First stay in Bloomsbury area
For a 2-star it is probably a notch above. The staff are very helpful ( they assigned us a room with fewer stairs to accommodate my wife who had had a fall prior to our trip),beds are comfortable and price is reasonable for the area. Windows are single-glazed and if facing the street, it can be noisy in the evenings, especially on the weekend but this did not interrupt sleep for us. Room was rather spartan (no TV or radio), walls are thin but once again this was not a problem for us. Sink only in room and shared bathroom on the floor below or above. Beds were changed each day and rooms cleaned. We would stay here again.

Exceptional 10.0
Convenient and affordable
Small, slightly eccentric and well priced accommodation in Bloomsbury. Well placed for university. Small room, shared bathrooms but very safe and friendly. Breakfast available downstairs
Howell, gb2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Had better
Not really up to two stars, narrow room, no en suite, but relatively cheap and well located, so OK for one night.

Fair 4.0
too hot to stay at the time of summer (no air-conditioner) and have to ring the door bell every time you go out of the hotel
gb10 night trip
Very good 8.0
The staff was always very friendly and considering the hotel building is 200+ years old, it was an interesting hotel. Good location to trains and buses, found some very nice restaurants nearby as well. Not a modern hotel but a good experience for the younger generation. Missed some air conditioning but found out most places didn’t have air conditioning.
Jo Anne, gb1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
In 4 days had to ask to change towels. Internet was useless. Sink swished with a rag and no cleanser.
