Everything as you would expect from the brand but with almost no parking (15.00 per day if you get one of the 6 spaces) and tucked away up an uninspiring alley. Having said that then Croydon is also an uninspiring place, so this was a little oasis in that concrete jungle.

Dear RodBint Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. As stated on our website, we do have limited parking spaces available onsite, on a first come first served basis. The car park we do recommend to all of our guests is the Q-Park, which is only a couple of minutes walking...

Stayed two nights in December. Upon arrival I was as given 3 different keys to a room and talked to like I was an idiot by the manager because none of them worked. I was then I was transferred into a twin room when I booked a double. Will not be stopping here again.

Awful stay whilst in London.....avoid with a barge pole. Strong smell of paint gave us a headache and when we went to reception, they had only one other room that the window wouldn't close and it was freezing! To top it off, it took 15 minutes to check in as the room card machine didn't work properly. Freshly painted, with...

It's a Holiday Inn Express, so you know what to expect. Light, clean but basic rooms, normally no bar / restaurant but this one DOES have a bar. It's down an alleyway in the centre of Croydon so parking is limited, so check if they have space or go to one of the many local carparks. They found space for...

This is a great budget hotel. Good staff, easy checkin and nice and clean with the usual holiday inn brekkie. Only problem for me was the lack of on site parking ... I didn't arrive until 945 pm and walking from the car park on my own as a lone female traveller was not ideal. The post code for the...

An unbelievably inaccessible hotel with extortionate charges for parking. £15 per night for extremely limited on-site availability, and £9 per night for an unpleasant walk to and from a local public car park. Contrary to the website description, this hotel is nowhere near "MODERN" and is in fact old, tired and untidy. The room heating barely worked, the "complimentary" coffee...

Stayed just one night.. Room was airy and spacious. Bathroom clean. Very central location in Croydon. Rooms could do with updating but on the whole it was good. Reception staff were particularly friendly and efficient. We would stay again.

DONT stay here wished I stayed at the premier inn instead looked a lot better and is closer to the station. Booked a double bed, got two singles, told they would upgrade me the 2nd night, they didn't, way over-priced for what you get, down a dingy alley, which as a single female felt unsafe on my own at night....

the staff are very friendly. there is no parking at the hotel but you can use the mall and it costs £2.00 so not to bad. the beds are very uncomfortable at this hotel and i found my back was in bits, so little sleep. room clean and tidy.

Hello Roy_clough46, I apologise that the noise from the works outside interrupted your night, unfortunately this is out of our hands due to major issue on the roads behind the hotel.
