Why Road Lodge Southgate?
The front desk staff was excellent. After my online booking did not show up on the PC, they assured me they would sort it out and even allowed me to go to my room while they were addressing the issues. They were friendly and professional and always maintained eye contact when you were in the room, letting you know they would help!
