    Shower to get flu

    Vent in shower blowing strong cold air down on you also creating an unpleasant draft in the room.

    Great basic clean hotel

    Great basic hotel where I always stay when In am in East London. Unfortunately there was no hot water in the shower. A very tepid / lukewarm shower had to be had in the middle of winter

    Great reliable hotel

    The road load is a basic hotel which is great for business travellers. Guests are often loud after hours (10 pm)

    Pit Stop

    Our short stay was good, our accommodation provides all the necessary requirements. There were some children running around in the corridors and being quite loud, but fortunately this dissapated by after a while
