Based on the price (which was about £55 for a twin double with a 10% Expedia discount voucher) I expected it to be along the lines of a Premier Inn or Travelodge, and there's nothing wrong with that. But it's actually much nicer than that.
The reception is smart, the rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy and there is free (if slow, but upgradable) wifi. The bathroom is functional rather than super smart and the view was of the about to be demolished Whitgift but we didn't care. Apart from anything else, the blackout curtains were amazing.
The good available in the restaurant and room service looked a bit "fast food at inflated prices" so we ate out but if there had been nothing else on sure it would have been fine.
The staff were really nice and the price was great. I'd go back and probably will.
I was pleased to find that the hotel was even closer to the station than I expected. Almost as soon as I walked out of the station I could see it. It was also close to the shopping centre.
Check in was friendly and efficient.
My room was very clean and nicely decorated and furnished.
Breakfast was good.
The only downside was that the hotel was without water on the morning of my departure.
