    Friendly staff (and I was late checking in). Clearly proud of what they do and rightly so.

    I liked the location which suited my needs. The room was very nice and cleaned daily. I disliked a steep staircase with the room at the top floor (I'm partly disabled).

    Fantastic budget hotel.

    For such a cheap stay (£40-50 per night) in London it was amazing. The host was lovely, showed me around the room and full kitchen facilities. I had an en-suite room, but there are cheaper options with shared facilities. If I am in the area again I will definitely book her (which is half the cost and twice as good as most other budget hotels in London).

    Friendly, comfortable, clean

    Checking in at a busy local pub bar, part of the hotel, felt a bit unusual to start. A warm friendly welcome from the efficient staff immediately made we welcome. The room had obviously been recently updated. A stylish en-suite shower room with top quality fittings had plenty of hot water, and the bed was comfortable. What else do you need.
