    Friendly staff. good facilities

    The breakfast toaster was a nightmare! Staff were bothered by complaints which took them away from more important duties.

  • Family with children

    We visited friends whom lived very close to the Hotel, so the Hotel was ideal in our circumstances; they had eaten at County Hotel but had never met anyone whom had stayed, so may now recommand you to their other friends.

    Well located and staff pretty good.

    Walls very thin so could hear next door having a bath and shower etc .

  • Older travelers

    That you had a full length mirror, and plugs over the dressing table

    The pillows were flat and of poor quality. The sound proofing was poor - we could hear people above us going to the toilet.

    Reasonable hotel with good-sized rooms.

    Overall a good hotel, but maybe rooms could improve with some air-conditioning

  • Older travelers
    6.0

    Staff friendly and helpful

    Too many stairs. Price too dear for what it was. Have stayed at higher starred hotels for less.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The service is excellent, breakfast was good and the facilities in the room such as an iron + ironing board as well as the facility to make a cup of tea/coffee was very much appreciated. There is parking at the hotel, free of charge and the hotel is close to Hylands Park, where jls and Olly Murs were performing, so all in all a great stay.

    The bathroom was clean, but the area above the window in the bathroom was quite dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned in a while.

    The guy who worked the night(kunan) desk and the staff at the bar..very friendly

    I didn't have any breakfast, yet the woman at the checkout still insisted on charging me for it...didn't bother trying to convince her otherwise...

  • Single
    7.0

    central location. Restaraunt was pleasant, breakfast was ok.

    General english standard in the bath/shower room. Vinyl floor. Black (mould) in the shower grout. Sink with hot and cold taps instead of mixer. Generally needs a complete new modern bathroom, not redecoration. Using either Carpet or vinyl on all floors, typical of many hotels, looks quite old fashioned and cheap.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Staff were very polite and helpful. Lounge area was large and very comfortable.

    We felt the room was very small if one needed to us it other than just sleeping. We stayed just a weekend whilst attending our son's wedding so it served the purpose very well. However if one was staying longer it would be cramped with the luggage. Wardrobe was full with ironing board and suitcase frame so if space was needed for personal strorage, one would need to put these items outside into the room.

    The staff are very nice and accommodating. I was absolutely exhausted when I arrived they allowed for an early check-in and were extremely helpful.
