    This is the kind of chain hotel that delivers, what you see is what you get. Reliable in delivering standarised services and quality. Nice and spacious (to be London) room. Clean and semi-stylish. Great breakfast buffet.

    We moved (with a payed upgrade) to a "family room." Hardly large enough for the two of us. No coffee maker, no fridge, no face cloths.
