Great Area but in need of an upgrade
Posted 20-Mar-2017 on Hotels
This hotel is in a great location to visit Camden. It is a quick walk to Chalk Farm and Camden Market. The rooms themselves are very dated and could do with a freshen up. We booked breakfast on the Thursday night and were told it was a buffet breakfast. Friday morning there was no hot buffet but you could help yourself to cereal, fruit etc. I can honestly say this is the worst breakfast I have ever received in any hotel. The one sausage seemed to be deep fried, the bacon tasted strange, tinned mushrooms and tomatoes, beans which I hate but wasn't given a choice and two crispy fried eggs. Was a bit annoyed as we had paid an extra £10 each for this. When we checked out on Sunday it did seem there was a buffet option for the hot food so maybe it is only on certain days you can pick what you want. The hotel is dated and did smell in places but if you are looking for a room to put your head down and grab a shower then for the price in this area you can't complain. The staff were helpful. Towels replaced every day. Asked the cleaner for some spray for the room but he didnt have any. The room has everything you need ie hairdryer, iron etc. Would I stay again? I'm not sure. For the Price and location yes. Breakfast no. Rooms...I'm undecided. We were £280 for a 3 night stay. £300 Inc the breakfasts.
