8/10 Very Good

London weekend stay
Lovely rooms and great breakfast choice. Service excellent. Rooms don’t have aircon so it was a little warm and a little noisy with the windows open. Decent value all round.

Very busy and slow check in. Lack of aircon meant we had to sleep with window open and the local noise level was high!

Really good hotel.
It was really good for the price and the area. Wifi worked well sometimes and sometimes was really slow.

6/10 Good

Room was a little tired. No lock on bathroom door. Shower head loose. Pillows very firm. No hairdryer. Also very very warm and no way of cooling the room. We opened the window but could hear a very loud tv for hours on end - still going after 11pm and started again at 7am.

London stay - The Royal National
Central location with good facilities. Room size was best I’ve encountered in London and housekeeping was in place during stay for fresh towels etc. The hotel is big, but staffed well. Adjoining pub good for drinks and TV sport

Good stay
Pleasantly surprised after reading some reviews. Good service, exceptional price that included breakfast. Good facilities and open late. Self service vending machine area that sold sandwiches beer, wine etc. Breakfast was very good. Only minor downside was the TV remote only had one battery and was unable to switch on. Great area as well.
