I arrived late at 9.30pm, and left at 9 the next day,, had a good nights sleep, bed comfortable.
Breakfast ok. Staff friendly. Very Good budget hotel. Very quiet location unlike many London hotels.
fine if you are a polar bear
.quiet area , parking good.
staff were fine, they changed my room immediately when I found my on suite had no show or bath, and they gave me a blanket when I asked for an extra blanket because the room was'nt that warm and there was no spare blanket in the room . BUT the heating went off all night and didnt come on until I was leaving at 8 just before I left and the radiator was only luke warm so either only go in the summer or take thermals. Also breakafast isnt until 8.30 on a Sunday so if you have to leave early don't expect breakfast. its ok for a short stay.
lovely hotel and excellent customer service.
Good but misleading photos on Website.
I had to stay one night in Bromley for work reasons.
Because of the photo's on their website (and perhaps my lack of attention to detail) I had assumed this was a brand hotel on a retail/leisure area. The name Avis also lead to that assumption. It's basically more like a guest house on a residential street, which was not what I expected. I think they use their web pictures to cleverly upbrand themselves. Anyway, not a problem. Bed was comfy and service was good. Just not what I had expected.....
A week in Bromley
Road warrior hotel, probably best vfm in the area.
Excellent small hotel
After an initial problem with our booking,the gentleman on reception sorted everything out and was very apologetic for the error.
Our room was fine, clean,, warm,good bed,everything we needed for an overnight stay. Bathroom door would not close. Breakfast was comprehensive and good. Staff friendly and efficient.
The Avis provides solid mid-level accommodations, not spectacular but not disappointing either.
It is probably one of the better options in the area.
Great Nights Stay
Attended a friends party nearby, The staff were very warm and welcoming, room was lovely and clean, breakfast was very nice.
I would stay there again.
Understaffed which didn't help, but not a great stay
Not a great experience for my stay at the Avis - started off with rooms still being cleaned at 4pm, despite being told that they would be ready by 3pm.
Then after getting in the room, locking the door and going into the bathroom, heard the door open (no knock) and the cleaner was suddenly in the room. He gave it a cursory vacuum, and how cursory became evident when i found a toenail of a previous occupant on the floor later. The manager (part of the family who own the hotel) had said that they were low on staff when I was checking in, and this was the issue. I think there was only the one cleaner for 21 rooms, and he didn't know whether he was coming or going. I had no confidence given the room/cleaning that the restaurant service would be great, so didn't eat there - the menu looked to be decent staple pub grub style food, and reasonably priced. In the morning, unlike the night before, there was no hot water to be had from the shower, although there was from the taps. Breakfast made me think I made the right choice on dinner: there was only one bloke doing literally everything: greeting people, tea/coffee, cooking, clearing,serving toast, egss, etc. Unsurprisingly there was a big delay on the tea/coffee/toast, milk had run out, and the breakfast buffet was nearly empty. The bloke was actually very nearly keeping on top of everything, but I think the hot food was basically done by 7.45 am
The place is just tired, carpets, furniture are all worn, could do with a redecoration, and they definitely need to at least double the number of staff I saw. On the plus side the manager was a really nice friendly guy, the breakfast chap was valiantly fighting a clearly futile battle, decent flat screen TV, and the wifi was very good. And the location is excellent - 5 minutes walk from town centre, but in an extremely quiet residential area that is not a cut through, so very little traffic noise. I very nearly gave it a one star, but with extra staff it would be two stars. Having said all that I stayed at another hotel last tme I was in the area, and would definitely pay the extra next tme to stay there again - it was cleaner, more efficiently run and overall just more appealing.
Well placed hotel
The Avis was comfortable and the staff welcoming.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable A couple of gripes: the shower and toilet cubicle was very small but it was clean and worked well; there was only a metal chair in the room rather than an armchair.
