          • Good location reasonably clean fairly cheap and many of London'. Staff very friendly and helpful, excellent shower/. Nice bar, lovely breakfast.

            Rooms on opposite side of hotel were quieter and the sheets were extremely rough and the bed not very comfortable.

          • The situation is perfect and overall a pleasant stay close to the theatres in a well presented hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful and the room is quite cozy and clean. No fridge to put fresh milk in, breakfast should be cheaper.

            Bathroom was too small, late night revellers from local nightspots were a disturbing nuisance.

            Rooom faced onto busy, noisy road and bed too short bathroom rather cold. Silly price for breakfast £17.50.
