    The choice at breakfast was poor (continental breakfast).

    Jan 2019

    Location was excellent. Room size was decent.

    Toilet didn't flush properly (not ideal) and no toilet plunger was provided. Bed was not terrible but not particularly comfortable either. It felt lumpy No wall hangers for coats although there was one small wardrobe. Overall could have been much better

    The location is excellent. Recent renovations have made this hotel more modern and comfortable.

    There is no fitness room. The continental breakfasts are horrible.

    Comfortable but poor breakfast

    Good overall value, clean and comfortable room.

    The continental breakfast was a bit exaggerated- little more than a choice of three cereals and a stack of pre made toast which was soggy.

  • Okay

    Conveniently located to Underground

    The most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. It slanted down at one corner.
