Quite a nice location in East London. I felt safe there. My car was well looked after. Staff very friendly and professional as I would expect from a...

Kettle to close to the TV and thus the steam affects the TV. The shower area is very small when standing in the bath...

The hotel is situated at the beach front. The view from the room was nice and even had a small balcony. There are shops in the surrounding area if you have forgotten something. Dining area has a view of the beach.

Train your reception staff, they are the face of your hotel. When there are challenges with a room it is recommended that you move that guest to another room and not keep the guest waiting twice outside whilst the technician is fixing a malfunctioning door.

Nice location, very friendly and efficient staff. Comfortable bed. Geat swimming pool. The only disapointments was the overwhelming sigarette odour(room 132) and late night noise coming from the restaurant. Irritating when one has to register for WIFI.

Stayed there for the Half Iron man at the end of January, and was within an easy walk of the start at the Orient beach. Race morning it was also on the shuttle bus route, while the hotel was the registration venue for the event. Services such as breakfast, was geared for the event and was very good.
