Always value for money and in general a good experience. However rather confused by the booking procedure as I ended up using both Speedy Booker and to secure an additional night your own direct booking facility. Disappointing the bar was not open this time.

This is the second time we have stayed here. The staff is incredibly helpful. The location is perfect for London holidays. We will always try to stay here while in London!


Great value accommodation in a really quiet central location ☺️ If you want breakfast at the college you can only buy this when you book the room


Clean and efficient. I couldn't find the breakfast venue.


Very high standard in the room. Secure building.
