                  Loved this hotel. Perfect location close to the tube station and bus stops, yet seemed tucked away.

                  Rooms very clean, great food options. Breakfast with room was a great a choice.

                  Only thing I would have liked is to control the room temp. It was a bit warm but still nice.
