Fantastic staff, good hotel, but noisy area
Posted Mar 11, 2014
The staff were amazing from time of booking until checkout - they exceeded my expectations and helped out massively in organising a birthday surprise for a fellow traveller.
The room was lovely and clean, with good amenities. The hotel was good, the buffet breakfast had a lot of choice and food was perfectly edible.
The only down-side is the area. Our room overlooked the main street and there are nightclubs / bars a few doors down each way. We went out to the bars, are lively people and are not against noise, but a combination of the police and ambulance sirens coming past every few minutes (literally!) for most of the night, because it was the main road through, plus the revellers outside until about 3am, meant we did not get much sleep. On the up-side, it is easy walking distance from several restaurants, the tube station and most facilities that you could need.
We enjoyed our stay and were very happy with the hotel and service.....it's just a shame it's not set back off of the main road to avoid the noise.
