    The departure

    Price/value and the more than lousy breakfast

  • 6.6
    Good

    The staff were flexible in that they allowed us to check into our room well before the advertised time.

    Surly bar staff!

    Very good

    Comfy bed and the best breakfast I have had in a hotel for a very long time

  • 6.6
    Good

    Staff very quick and efficient . Rooms comfy

    Getting ready for a make over. Not as close to the train station as we thought

    Very good

    two double beds

    People in the adjacent rooms congregated inthe corridor and were quite noisy until the early hours of Sunday morning. Hotel was a good 15 minute walk to the nearest tube so not ideally located for us.

    Fabulous

    The room size and pillows.

    The condiments were available upon request.

    Good location and easy to access London.

    Not enough parking and not adequate breakfast facilities for the amount of guests in the hotel.

    Guest rating

    The location as we could easily walk to St Pancras to get Javelin train to Stanford and the Paralympic Games

    Not sure why this hotel is 4 star. The leisure facilities are extra so can't really be included. Mind you the hotel is better than other reviews on this site. Our tv was LCD . It was not shabby and I don't think breakfast in the Indian restauran really matters

    Shower and bed

    Stop the bloody constant alarm going off and oh my god let the potential customers know that there is construction happening at the hotel. Cant believe all the above compared to the expensive price at the same time. Diagraceful WIFI as my 2G network would be far better than their silly snail like WIFI. Disgraceful for them to also charge to use the swimming pool. 3/10 rating.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    the shower was good, the hotel was clean and friendly, and modern

    took 5 requests to get the sofa bed made into a sofa, even having booked it. however, the receptionist was very good.

    Fine hotel in decent location. Clean rooms. Good pub across from the hotel.

    Wi Fi very slow

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Breakfast was very good value for money. The breakfast staff were excellent.

    Only a service lift for people with limited mobility which was not working on the day we left. There was a pool available but you had to pay extra to use it which was not made clear on the website.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The rooms are clean. It's well run. If you pay a fee there is a lovely pool.

    What I didn't grasp when booking was that when they said 'refurbishments' were going on that meant a jack-hammer on the floor beneath us at 8am. The restaurant had gigantic AC units in the dining room. I'm sure it will be beautiful in due time. And we got a good price due to the construction I suppose. But it was not entirely done, and the poor staff seemed harried.
