Service and Staff
Property condition


Staff was friendly and accommodating. Property was not up to par for area and price. My first night, the room I was staying in smelled like cigarette smoke. I wasn’t quite sure where the smoke was coming from—either from another room or outside. It was evident the smoke was entering my room only, as the hallways did not smell like smoke—I eventually switched to another room the following day. It is my belief staff was aware that the room had a smoke problem, as when I checked into the room, all the windows were open despite the cold weather as if they were trying to cover up the smoke smell. Additionally, the hotel had no heating available and portable heaters were provided only after complaining of how cold it was. Would NOT recommend this hotel.

Really disappointing and the pictures and headline rate grossly misrepresent the offer here. The pictures bear no resemblance to the rooms on offer here. The rooms are dirty. The headline rate of "£300" is simply larceny - the heating clearly hasn't been working for weeks and there isnt even a kettle in the room. A noisy fan heater was grudgingly offered. Lots of staff wandering in and out of the back office but none of them doing anything useful or engaged in service to the customer. Finally and of note, the person checking in behind me had his credit card stopped simply for giving his details to this hotel. BE AWARE. Expedia should de-list this hotel unless the rate is reduced to commensurate with the offer: a second rank two star bed and breakfast a long walk from the nearest tube.

The property was well located very near to the Gloucester Road Underground. Nearby were several fine restaurants. The TV worked and there was always hot water. It had an elevator. The staff was passive. The internet didn't work for 2 days and 3 separate desk clerks at different times couldn't say what was being done to fix it. Drawer pulls were missing from the bureau. The continental breakfast was limited and the bread was always stale.
