We have stayed here before and loved the hotel and the area, although the area does get far too busy at weekends so I would suggest, if you can, staying midweek.
Try to get a room overlooking the
lock. It is great for people watching but does get very noisy, however the double glazed doors keep a remarkable amount of noise out.
Highly recommend this hotel if you want a great experience away from the main drag of London. Kings Cross is only 2 tube stops away on the Northern line, London Zoo, Regents Park and Primrose Hill are only a ten minute walk away (and that is with sore feet from all of the walking we did!). [Less]
