Fabulous 8.6 From 760 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Clean, basic, close to DLR station
Clean, basic, a bit on the small side for a family but still doable. Nice size shower and full breakfast included. Close to DLR station which takes 30 min to get to Tower Hill. Not much in the area (still under development) but convenient for the price. I would stay at this hotel again.

Exceptional 10.0
Two great guys at the desk when I arrived and they were fantastic. Even loaned me a charging plug for my I Phone as I had misplaced mine. It just carried on from there as the staff were amazing. Lounge, restaurant, breakfast buffet all were great. Hotel condition is mint overall and room was very well appointed. I consider myself knowledgeable about employee relations and somebody is doing very well here as morale seemed to be very high. Great job folks and I will be back.

An OK hotel
When checking in the staff were OK but went off to deal with another person whilst leaving us to wait. Didn't find them as welcoming as in other hotels I have stayed in. Breakfast was nice but could've been better.

1 min from DLR station, good breakfast and welcoming staff. Close to city airport, so close you can feel the planes let alone hear them! But only in daytime hours.

Overall excellent!
Everything was perfect to start with, we arrived extremely early and asked if we could park the car, use the baby changing facilities and then check in later on, the friendly receptionist had no problem with assisting us. The receptionist could then see that our baby had started becoming unsettled so found us a room to check into early. The room was standard, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Then we came to check out and the receptionist (different from the day before) had an attitude problem, wasn’t very friendly, wanted to charge us £10 to leave our car for 2 hours until 11am (standard check out time) because the previous receptionist had kindly let us park early. It’s a shame that this one member of staff ruined our experience because everything else was pretty much perfect!
