we have been staying at the above hotel for years but the menu doesn't get any better the choice is minimal and the prices are high for what you get.
over all the hotel and staff are good but the food isn't.

The hotel is a good value hotel but we had a bad experience with our neighbours as the rooms have an inter-connecting door . They decided to have a loud conversation at 2am which we could hear all of through the connecting door.
Would be good for families wanting 2 rooms but not so good for people who want a good nights sleep !

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Burden13 Tired rooms and disorganised breakfast
Rooms could do with more tlc - breakfast experience (the booking staff having taken great pride in telling me it was included in the price of my stay) was grim! I had assumed the hotel was aware of numbers requiring breakfast but perhaps not. Consequently, I was disappointed to find eggs and sausages had run out and I got fed up with waiting. I mentioned this to a chap on reception who said there was no refund as breakfast was free! On checking out, the next person said he would listen to and take on board my comments! Am staying there again this week - I wonder if things might be improved? Maybe not, as this is a franchise rather than a 'Holiday Inn'

Booked this room without breakfast so we thought, only to find breakfast although basic was included. Cannot complain, room very clean and comfortable and would certainly stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mel8 Quiet and Comfortable 3 Night Stay
On arrival the reception staff were friendly, helpful and prepared. The room was comfortable. The double bed was too firm for my back, but I spent three nights on the sofa bed which came with this room and I found that better for me. My companion also found the bed too firm but managed.
We were surprised at how quiet the hotel was and enjoyed peaceful undisturbed sleep.
The free t.v. and wifi were an important bonus for us.
Clothes storage, especially hanging space, was just a little less than we expected but we managed.
The shower and loo were adequate but there was a slight odour from the wash handbasin.
The breakfast was varied, plentiful and of good quality and the dining area clean and congenial.
The room was clean but obviously well used, the decor looking a little tired and the carpet marked.
The location of this hotel with supermarket, petrol station, and bus station adjacent was helpful.
On the downside, the dining room was not open during the evenings over the weekend. When the weather/room was chilly we could not make the airconditioning unit work to warm us up a little. My companion is vegetarian and would have liked vegetarian sausages to be available for breakfast.

I stayed here with my two Daughters (16 and 21) in a family room. Plenty of parking space, brilliant supermarket nearby, not too far from the tube right into London. The room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of choice at breakfast. The icing on the cake was the staff - they were so very helpful and cheery. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This was our second visit to this hotel and we enjoyed it just as much as the first.
Very friendly staff and the room very comfortable.
We wont bother to look anywhere else for our next visit to London as we feel at home there so much.
Well done to everyone and look forward to seeing you again in the near future on our shop til we drop weekends.
Best wishes .

The staff was very friendly, helpful, and quite knowledgeable. The only things we didn't like is that the hot breakfast items were the same for our whole stay. We would've like a little variety since we were there for 8 days. The rooms are a good size, but no drawers. The bed is quite comfy. We like that there were 6 hours of free internet, but we didn't like that it had to be used in the lobby area only.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shapot27 comfy bed
The place was easy to find and the staff are accommodating when we arrived. The room is clean and bed is comfy. Although, I did not quite enjoy the breakfast bit. Not much choices. Fry ups are very limited. But all in all, it served the purpose. A nice, clean place to stay in and close to the place we need to be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mitch49 nice hotel
stayed for a one night stopover so were mainly just looking for a bed for the night.however hotel ambiance was most welcoming and stayed up late drinking in bar.prices were as usual more than you would normally pay but staff were efficient and friendly.everything was to a high standard throughout the hotel and although it is unlikely we will return to this particular hotel we will try to use this hotel chain more often if the price is competitive as the price we paid was very reasonable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DalSandhu Nice stay
We stayed here for a couple of nights, so we could take the kids in to central London, for weekend break.
I needed a place where I could park my car, There's plenty of parking.
There's a large super market, right next door, and a petrol station which was handy.
The staff are pleasant, checking in was straight forward.
The rooms a little small when you have the sofa bed out. but for a couple of nights it was fine, clean.
Breakfast, standard kind of stuff but I would have like more of a vegi choice with hot food.
The hotel is on a main bus route and it took about 10 mins to get to the Bus/Tube station, The bus service is regular even on a Sunday.
Overall nice pleasant stay, little simple but good value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johno2121 The warm welcome from all the staff made this stay more enjoyable
This is a good alternative to other more central hotels. Access to the city is easy and straight forward with a car. The warm welcome enhances this experience. The hotel is well located with adequate parking.

I stay at this hotel 2 or 3 times a year and it's worth every penny. I do always eat out or order take away in. Breakfast is good. Rooms great.
Only bad point is service at bar always seem to have to wait for service.
This hotel is easy to get to and staff are always friendly. Highly recommended if you want a cheap comfy quite hotel. I've stayed about 10 times now and never gad a problem.

The hotel is good value for money. Free parking. Free breakfast and good variety. Beds are comfortable.
Only drawback is that rooms are compact for a family.
Overall very good hotel from price and comfort point of view. Would recommend for next stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Billycat Comfortable bed and great breakfast
Everything was fine except that the bedroom was not too warm. Having the heater on caused a draught over the bed, which was not acceptable to us - perhaps a personal thing. Breakfast much better than expected! Overall a pleasant experience.

Very accessible, right by the North Circular. Excellent double-glazing meant that the room was quiet. Very comfortable beds. Good breakfast. Definitely recommended and will stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aimc No welcome from staff and cold room
In comparison to premier inn staff the welcome at check inn and at breakfast was pretty poor. Not even eye contact from kitchen staff when you arrive down. No explanation of what to do. And when I asked if the natural yoghurt was low fat. I was looked at as if I just fell from the sky.
The room was freezing during the night. Had to put heater off as blowing hot dry air down directly above bed. The duvet was all lumpy with clusters of interior filling.
Told receptionist in morning and she replied should get another duvet. Then that was the end of that issue.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by isalew Average place to stay for 1 night only.
Looks good from the outside, very clean inside, couldn't hear any noise from inside the bedroom.
Customer service was dull, not welcoming at all.
No still water for priority customers, fridges half empty.
Woken by the fire alarm at 4:30am - given no oppolgy or explanation, room was hot and stuffy but very clean, nice TV but no kids channels.
Breakfast was basic and looked horrible (specially the scrambled egg)
The goodbye was more enthusiastic than the hello.

I liked your service this time.
I am sorry I failed to be able to make an advance reservation
for late August and early September this year because
rooms appeared to be booked out after the Olympics well
in advance. i made a reservation elsewhere. But when I got
to London I found out that enough rooms were actually
still available. Too late. Block reservations seem to have been
The requirement of a minimum number of characters in this field
is a nuisance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TWes Let down by the breakfast
A straightforward simple pleasant hotel, apart from the breakfast.
Breakfast started badly, with the worst (surely instant?) coffee that I have tasted in decades of travelling for business and leisure. The cereals were the usual high salt Kelloggs varieties, and the only fruit grapefruit (Sadly I am not permitted grapefruit, as it clashes with a number of medicines.) And toast was OK.
However, the horror was the cooked selection. The scrambled egg was a springy mass, and did not taste quite as it should; the beans were watery, and the sausages were truly grim. I was reminded of their flavour regularly all morning!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StillNotImpressed Front staff were ok then it fell apart
The service provided by staff at the desk and bar was good but the domestic element was atrocious. The attitude displayed to myself and my new wife was out of order, we were spoken to with contempt and ordered out of the room so they could clean. This in relation to myself having a disability and my wife being asleep at the time. We had earlier asked when the rooms were to be cleaned so that we could be out and were brushed off with 'later'. I reported this series of events to the desk and was told it would be looked into I then repeated this report on leaving when asked how the stay had been. At no time was any form of compensation offered or mentioned except by me. The a/c in the room kept it nice and cold and even when a member of desk staff worked on it, it povided heat simply below the unit. The price of staying did not justify such a poor showing. In regards the domestic staff the excuse given was that they had poor English, I feel this is never to be used as an excuse for behaviour. After all if I had been offensive I'm sure I couldn't use a similar defence in relation to my levels of English.
I would not recommend thus establishment due to the above even though other staff seemed effective.
