About the hotel
The Casuarina Tree Hotel is located on a former pub on the A217 close to Mitcham’s tram stops and only a short way from Ravensbury and Poulter Parks. We have a free car park so no worries with parking and also offer free Wi-Fi access. We have seven recently refurbished spacious bedrooms each have colour TV with all major TV channels and DVD player.
Hair dryer and ironing facilities are provided. Breakfast are provided on request. The Casuarina Tree combines the original features of the old building such as wood beams and bay windows with contemporary furnishings in bold blacks and reds. This relaxed, unhurried setting is where Mitcham diners enjoy Asian fusion cuisine with a sprinkling of Continental inspiration too. The Casuarina Tree kitchen works creatively with ingredients, taking inspiration from the traditional but refining those dishes to suit the more curious and harder to please modern palate. The menu here is heavy on the Indian side of things, offering both favourite curry house choices and lesser known regional specialties, but also displays a range of main dishes from Sri Lanka and China too, all eminently affordable but of the highest quality too. There is also a bar in the restaurant. Casuarina Tree is about 10-minute from Wimbledon and Croydon by Tram. East Croydon is a major hub within the national railway transport system, provide easy access to central London, south coasta and easy acess to Gatwick airport a mere 20 minutes from East Croydon. Wimbledon station is the only London station that provides an interchange between rail, Underground, and Tramlink services provide easy access to central London and south of England.

I arrived about 7pm on a Thursday.
This is a bar and Indian Restaurant. There is no reception area for guests. I was given a key and a card with hand written Codes for the door and a 6 digit number for the gates if I returned late. The entrance was pointed out to me through the bar window. I couldn't get the door to open as I had turned the knob the wrong way. Eventually someone opened the door from the other side and showed me my error. I was told I was on the first floor, Room 4.. I was left again. I found the room without a problem. The key wasn't the correct one. After going downstairs and knocking for several minutes on the door, it was eventually opened by a customer as no one was serving at the bar. A lady rushed over and I explained my problem, she went to get some other keys and met me by my room door. She first tried my key, it didn't open, then tried some of the keys that she had brought with her. Finally it opened and I was given the key. The room wasn't ensuite and there are no signs showing you where the toilets and showers are. If they had showed me to my room all these problems could have been resolved quickly !. I left my bags and headed out to meet some friends in Wimbledon. I returned about 12.30am. The place was closed and the gates were locked. I had the card with me with the hand written 6 digit combination to the locks. On inspection the padlocks only had 5 cylinders and only needed 5 numbers. Now I didn't work at Bletchley Park and being quite "tired" I tried several combinations of the number to no avail over about 15 minutes, looking like a trainee safe-breaker. Eventually I gave up and looked for some way to scale the 6 ft high metal pole gates as I didn't have a phone with me. I clambered up and over the gates using a metal news paperstand and a large industrial bin on the other side. There really must be easier ways to get back into your hotel than this!. So not really the best experience I have ever had with a hotel. But the rooms were tidy and clean and knowing what I do now, I would stay there again if I needed. It is just around teh corner to the Tramlink so easy to get into Wimbledon.
Reasonable value and the opposite of an anonymous chain
We were a little concerned about some poor reviews and the area of the hotel, but I've got to say that the experience was much better than we expected.
The room and bed-linen was spotlessly clean, the en-suite shower was as good as any I have used and service from the staff could not be faulted. The car park always had room and was very secure.
It was noisy at night from traffic, until we found all the open windows and access to the washbasin was cramped. The establishment is actually "The Crown" pub with a very good Indian restaurant attached. The pub itself is not bad - good beer at reasonable prices but, breakfast is an idea that has yet to be fully grasped. Several establishments can provide same within strolling distance.
