    Location

    Room was not clean; had to ask to do it again. Staff very unfriendly; especially some of the women at the breakfast room and one hotshot at the reception desk. Some staff were friendly but some really extremely rude without reason. It is not in my habit to complain but as it said guests are responsible for stains made on bedding I mentioned the fact that the bedding was stained when I entered.

    Very good

    Location

    - The toiletries were a bit stingy and the continental breakfast was mediocre; the croissant was like something from aldi that had been defrosted. Considering this was an extra five pounds I was less than impressed. It's not ideal to have a hairdryer in a bathroom if the bathroom is already full of vapour - the result is frizzy hair.

    Staff were quite rude. Room was very small with little room to move around. Window blind party broken.

    Good

    The hotel was well situated for accessing London's transport. The rooms were a good size and had the baisc facilities that you would need for a short stay.

    My room was at the front of the hotel and was very noisy. Breakfast was basic.
