Below average stay
My room was okay when I entered it. I felt like it was manageable until i decided that I want to wash my hands and take a shower! The sink was completely clogged and would not drain itself properly at all. It also left a horrible residue of nasty dirt. The beds are quite uncomfortable. I did not have a good nights rest! Then that morning there was no hot water at all in my room and unfortunately the rooms do not have a telephone, you have to whatsapp reception which really annoyed me too. I complained via text and they offered to swap rooms for me. They did not however apologise for the inconvenience at all. My new room was alot better. But I paid for breakfast however there was non. No restaurant in the hotel was available and customer service is below average! Not at all professional in the least. Quite unhappy with my stay. I would not recommend it. Not all the lights in the room work either. and the fire alarm went off at 2am in the morning!!! Twice with again No apology. Horrible service. Definitely would NOT recommend!!!

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Comfortable and good value for what I paid
I stayed for one night as I had a meeting in London the next day. The hotel was undergoing renovations when I stayed. The car park is easily accessible but costs £16 per night which is very expensive. The staff are friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was clean and modern. I did not stay for breakfast so I cannot comment on the food quality.
