Speedy check in, spacious double room, with extra facilities of the pool and sauna room. There are plenty of shops nearby to purchase extra things you may need, and the tube station is just 10 minutes walk away. The breakfast buffet has a wide selection including scrabled eggs, bacon, sausages, breads, cereals and fruits. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Travelled on business in March 2020. Fast check-in, really helpful staff and room was everything I ask for - clean, tidy and comfortable. I will definitely use again. A lady on reception called Molly was very helpful resolving some technology based issues on my behalf (nothing to do with the hotel, just going the extra mile for a customer). I hope her manager gets to see this.
