Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whynot4 Clean comfortable rooms- staff friendly
We stay at this hotel several times a year when visiting my son.
In the 3 years we have been coming we have always been greeted by friendly staff and the rooms are clean and adaquate for our needs. Value is good as we always book in advance and take advantage of any offers.
On our last visit it was nice that Robert on reception had remembered us from the previous month, he made time to chat and make all feel welcome even the children had a bag of sweets.
Hopefully he will still be there when we return later in the year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pacemaker1000 Nearly 5 star but no free WiFi
cant fault location, access, food, cleanliness or staff but the lack of free WiFi is unacceptable today. not only that but the fee was extortionate!
I believe free WiFi is on the way though, thank goodness

Stop over for business. Good location for south of the river, not far from Dartford Crossing.
Food ok, rooms great.

The staff were so friendly and helpful even down to putting us in a back room with no noise so we would get a good nights sleep before the marathon. The food was all freshly cooked in the restaurant. The serves was first class and as for value for money very good.
I would say there again and any one doing the London marathon next year I would recommend it.

I chose this hotel because I was taking part in the 2013 London Marathon. After hearing bad reviews about Holiday Inns previously (based on price and food), I honestly didn't expect it to be a great stay. Despite this, I thought the hotel was brilliant. I selected the marathon package which included a carb dinner, breakfast, and a coach to the start line. I could have stayed elsewhere, for less, but I would have had to make my own way to the marathon start and arranged my own dinner. Staying at Holiday Inn meant that everything was already sorted for me, and a load off my mind! I definitely thought it was worth paying a little extra, maybe (as when I researched, there weren't that many places cheaper than this deal#, to not have to worry about the extras. The dinner was pleasant enough, plain pasta with separate sauces, jacket potatoes, bread rolls, etc. You went up as many times as you liked, which was great for carb loading! Very early start in the morning re breakfast for the event, but lots of choice so you weren't short of anything. My room was just right for me, small but very comfortable. Heating was spot on, bed was brilliant. Only slight complaint is a couple of doors slammed around 10.30pm, but if I had been a normal guest this would not have bothered me in the slightest and definitely has nothing to do with the hotel itself! The best part about my whole stay was the staff. They are the most wonderfully lovely people you will ever meet! The gentleman on reception who checked me in was very kind, patient, and friendly. Went out of his way to make sure I was catered for and that the marathon morning went smoothly #even offered my parents tickets for the coach so they didn't have to travel in from their hotel when he could easily have not mentioned it#. When I returned from the marathon, even though I had checked out that morning, he offered me use of one of their shower rooms so I could go home in comfort rather than my sports gear.
Overall, I would reccommend this hotel to anybody, especially those who are looking for accommodation for the marathon. It is a little further than others, so you do have a train ride and a ten minute walk to the hotel when you're returning #make sure you're with someone if you have just done the marathon, I managed to turn that 10 minutes into an hour, would have more if I hadn't have had my parents helping me!) but based on what is included and the incredible staff, it is a perfect hotel! Should I partake in another London Marathon, I will definitely be returning to this hotel.

We chose the Holiday as it had a London marathon package allowing us to not have to worry about getting ourselves to the start line or taking breakfast with us due to an early start. Everything is well thought out and the staff were supreme in every aspect giving us information on whatever we asked. Other than a pillow that wasn't the most comfortable as it seemed to hold the heat in everything else could not be faulted and I would recommend this service for anyone attempting the Marathon.
