Good value budget hotel
Stayed here on business, if you want a no frills budget hotel that's clean you will love it.
Its only down side is the fact it's a pub in the middle of a housing complex with no parking facility, I had to pRk on the main road and walk round,apart from that it was a good stay.
Lovely hotel, shame about the area
I can't fault the actual hotel itself.
The room was nice. The facilities were great. In the room we had a tv, DVD, kettle with tea and coffee, ensuite with all soap and shampoo provided. Lovely and clean. The thing that lets that hotel down badly is the area it's in. Literally in the middle of a really slummy council estate. Gangs of hoodies on all street corners stinking of drugs and gobbing up in the street. We came back to the hotel at 6.30pm and feared for our lives walking from old Kent road to the hotel. Ive never seen a chip shop with a security guard in it before.
