                        9.2

                        one of the better hotels in London

                        We needed to do a prepay on the room the admin e-mailed the hotel but they do not seem to check e-mails so when it came to checking in it was a nightmare my manager had to faf about filling in forms that the hotel should have sent over during the day and scanning the card,we understand the reason for the form but it was the overall not checking e-mails and sending the forms over that caused a problem

                        Location was ok, about 10 minute walk to tube station

                        Pretty basic in every aspect, wi-fi was not included in rate and charged 5 gbp per hour!! Cleaning of the room was superficial. Silverware for coffee was not clean.

                        Location near central London close to a tube station.

                        Bed mattress uncomfortable and small double bed.

                        Good Location for Kia Oval. Clean

                        Rooms clean but despite paying for an executive room, it was still fairly basic. Therefore expensive. Reception staff were polite, but nothing more. We did not have breakfast at hotel as an extra charge for a basic breakfast on top of the room cost is unacceptable. I would only recommend hotel if location was good for business reasons.

                        The location was good

                        the hotel was very noisy with people stood outside smoking, there was no air con in the rooms or fans available, out of the four towels in my room three were dirty and badly stained, shower gel was empty on check in, tea bags not refilled for second day. reception staff not very helpful

                        The location of the hotel was bad. They withdrawn money on arrival, it was very rude. You have to pay to use the internet connection, instead of this they can make it free and increase the price.

                        We liked the efficiency of the online booking, the cleanliness and the helpfulness of the staff. We stayed on the last weekend of the Olympic Games and were pleased with our location and service. We will definitely stay again.

                        Well situated, very clean. It was worth payng for a higher rate of room.

                        A huge school party came in which filled us with potential horror that we would not get any sleep, but in fact we didn't hear them at all. Stll not that cheap for the fairly basic style of hotel, and internet is not free.

                        I like the location

                        The size of the room and wc it is very very small

                        Ironing board in hall way fixed to the wall, yes ironing in the hall! &Quot;Seating Area" in room, consisted of a small chair, and I parked at 3pm and left 3pm the next day and had to pay 1 1/2 days, £33 to park as it runs 1pm to 1pm. &Quot;Comfort Inn" you are on my never use again list.

                        Looks bad from the outside - better inside. Check in was quick, staff very friendly. Room basic, no a/c and I was on ground floor so couldn't leave window open. There is a ceiling fan but it didn't work too well. Bed not brilliant. I paid £133 which I found way too expensive. I wouldn't return unless there was a good rate - no more than £60.

                        Over priced for a very cheap hotel. Room walls paper thin

                        Very good value.

                        Lobby did not provide a comfortable seating area and restaurant area was not always available for casual sitting.
