    Fabulous

    Hotel booked for operatives working in the area. they have asked to be rebooked into this hotel every week so that is recommendation in itself. their comments were that the continental breakfast was ok but they would much prefer a cooked breakfast! There is parking on site but it gets quite congested until the workers leave for the 7.30am sites.

    Gets booked up very quickly by companies for their workers in the area, so book early.

    Very good

    Friendly staff, clean room, at a reasonable rate.

    Suggestions, Breakfeast facilities a bit basic for the amount of guests staying, a extra set of tea/coffee makers and a extra toast machine would have sped up the queue. How about a decent big vending machine for 24 hour availability of snacks and soft drinks ?

    Very good

    Receptionist was very helpful. Breakfast was as good as it could be. Easy to find your way around the hotel and the 24hr reception is a bonus! Room and en-suite were spacious. Rooms are fab IF you don't mind the fact that people have probably been smoking in them.

    When we arrived for check-in after 11am (as it stated on the booking forms) our room was not ready. It hadn't been cleaned. We were told we could put our bags in the room and it would be cleaned while we were out. The room absolutely stunk of cigarettes. I am a smoker but I did not want to walk into a room like that. The ashtray was overflowing - I thought ALL hotels were no smoking these days? When we came back they'd cleaned the ashtray and put it back on the side. I did not smoke in the room.

    I liked the cost and the cleanliness. I also liked the helpfullness of the staff.

    Breakfast wasn't the best but you pay for what you get so cant complain really.

    it was clean and the room was a nice size

    it didnt have a bar and wasnt anywhere as close to the underground station as it suggested. Staff could also have been a bit quieter so early sunday morning!!

    Very good

    Getting back via the Night bus, the stop was directly in front of the hotel.

    Getting to the hotel from the train station was a long walk and we had to stop to ask for directions.

    The value for money and location

    The staff had poor english and the night staff where most unhelpful since my car had broken down , the night receptionist was very rude and unhelpful and should be sacked for his attitude alone . I simply touched him in a gesture of English friendship and was told in bold language " dont touch me" twice before the breakdown truck arrived ..very abrasive and not suitable for the job....impossible to relate to and ignorant ...he really needs sorting out

    Superb

    The man at the counter gave us a choice between two rooms which was nice, good hotel, lovely rooms, did'nt feel like the usual plastic manufactured rooms like the travelodge, instead had a homely design, plus there is internet available with printing facilities but a little bit pricey at £1 for 6 mins use, nice computer and chair mind with easy printing, no nead to call staff to help can do it all there.

    Breakfast is simple, but the price for three people staying is very good, better for four.

    Superb

    Hotel clean with modern feel. Staff were very helpful. Off road parking is . superb. Bus stop outside of hotel. Breakfast more than adequate for price of hotel. Overall, would recommend and be happy to stay there again.

    A fair walk to Tube.

    Very good

    The room we were showed was occupied then another one shown to us which was a twin bed that was booked on the net in the first place, because double rooms were fully booked, we weren't happy with that, so we paid the difference for a double and a single together that is the only one available, which we were very happy to have. the facilities were excellent and comfortable.

    just the pillows are too flat, apart from this everything, the staff and the environment is perfect, I will be coming to stay and be recommending to friends.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    My friend and I liked the value of the hotel and also the no nonsense approach - it was say hi fill out form and into room superb for what we needed.

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    Rooms are airy and comfortable, breakfast simple but good, Only one small complaint, no bath mat and the floor is slippery, could be an accident.

    As above. I always enjoy staying here, in fact it is my first choice London hotel and I sleep very well there.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The stay was very pleasant and would go back again to stay at Viking hotel.

    The rooms on the street very noisy but thanks for transfering us to 201. Room 201 is a very nice room and not noisy (traffic) at all.
