The bed was comfortable and the room warm ....exactly what was needed , and together with a wholesome breakfast the stay served to refresh and revive me for the next days endeavors...thank you

I am a priority club member and have used this hotel on earlier occasions as well. I found the stay comfortable and staff extremely good at their job. Very good location too ideal for commuting to central London.

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.

There are many travelers with kids, it's a little bit noisy in the morning.The single room with a sofa is quite comfort for us to hold a party of 6 persons.There is a large supermarket nearby, we are happy to shop there.A pity is the poor breadfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chaudhry Comfortable bed but compact rooms
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by paro good all round ,
except room had slight smell of damp,and heating only comes on when you put the card in,so you come to a cold room if you are out for the night.

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.

Great place to stay to visit our friends and attend their wedding.
Sainsbury's supermarket next door if you need anything you've forgotten. Rooms quiet so able to sleep soundly and plenty of car parking available. Only complaint was no bacon for breakfast.

The hotel is situated on north circular and easily accessible. There is Sainsbury with the park where hotel is situated so very handy. We attended a wedding in London and was ideal to stay there and commute to the family. Nice comfortable and affordable hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Could not have expected a better experience
The reception staff made us feel at ease, and were most helpful in settling us down to a most enjoyable stay. We arrived back very late (about 1.45am) from the Paralympics opening ceremony, and the bar staff were very courteous in dealing with us.
The room was very comfortable, with all the amenities that I expected, and the breakfast was more than adequate.
If in London again, I would certainly consider staying again at this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by popeye customer care poor, bad experience
When booking on line, I requested twin beds, on arriving at the hotel we were given double beds. When queried this we were told they do not do twin beds. They said they had noticed my request on the booking form though. I am not happy as they could have contacted me prior to my arrival to point this out to me, allowing me to at least be fore warned.
Secondly we could smell cigarette smoke along the corridor the day we arrived and by around 7.10am the saturday morning the fire alarm woke me, and my family out of bed in shock due to someone smoking in the bathroom.
Thirdly our tap made a loud noise every time we turned it on and the sink drain had a sewerage smell.
Finally, rather than eat breakfast there as we have in the past, we went out for breakfast as we had a long day and what they offer is not enough to keep us til lunch time as it is not a full English breakfast.
