When we checked in we were told that we had been upgraded which was a nice surprise, we could even leave the car in the Hotel car park after we had checked out for an additional fee which was a comfort to us.
The location for us was perfect as we had mainly travelled here to watch the Arsenal liverpool match, the local underground station is a 5-10 minute walkso you can be in the centre of the city within 10-15 minutes, and Finsbury Park was opposite which was really nice.
The rooms were cleaned every morning and there was also a kettle with tea and coffee which was a nice touch.
Staff were very helpful and polite, So thumbs up from me. : )

I booked this business trip with only six weeks notice, expecting to have to grossly overpay for a London hotel. Especially when I was looking for a chain, (as a lone female traveller, I feel more comfortable). I was over the moon to find this hotel at around £32 per night and less than ten minutes walk from Finsbury Park station (or 2 mins by bus). I was made feel very welcome on check in, with everything explained and an optional choice of floor. The single room was compact, (but not too small), very clean, cosy (adjustable radiator), clean towels in shower and heated rail. Flatscreen TV with freeview, a safe, a selection of tea/coffee and biscuits. Great free wifi. Plenty of hanging space/storage. A hairdryer and well lit, large vanity mirror above a desk and another full length mirror. The bed was very comfortable and there was a spare pillow. The hotel was very quiet at night, even though it is on a busy road. The surrounding area is safe to walk at night and is served by very regular buses. It's directly opposite the park. I arrived on a Sunday and there were plenty of people in there if you wanted a walk/to exercise. It's also handy to plenty of shops for amenities. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again !

It's a friendly budget hotel with good basic amenities close to transport links for the city. Stayed with my wife for a weekend catching up with daughter/nephews in the area and a day out to the city at Museums, dining and theatre. Good on site car parking (£10/night) was convenient as I don't often drive into London so I left it there and took tube or bus, all in easy walking distance. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Yes, there was some noise from other guests at night but it's a city location with family groups of all ages visiting so nothing unexpected, felt like a safe environment for a family visit to the city. Room was big enough (it's a budget hotel, at least we could walk each side of the bed) for our three night stay - we were only in it overnight - and it was kept very clean and tidy as was the shower room, which had a good supply of hot water. Buffet breakfast was simple and good with fresh selection of cooked and continental breakfast in a simple dining area that was kept clean and tidy by friendly staff. We used our room (on 2nd floor, lift always quick) as a base for going out to meet up with family and enjoy the amenities of a nor inexpensive city so it was ideal for us and would stay again if visiting this part of the city.

Firstly, may I thank the staff for being so wonderful. They went out of their way to be helpful and friendly, and felt they were fantastic. From providing plates and wine glasses for my takeaway, to accepting that take away and being generally very responsive and friendly - you have a wonderful team and I'm sure you're proud. I feel this hotel would be wonderful for a backpacker or tourist needing a value hotel to stay in.

However I do have a few points which meant I felt this was more of a 2 star hotel if anything: I did not feel the location was Covid Secure at all. No guests I encountered wore masks around the hotel and on entering the room, no reference was made to the fact it had been cleaned securely. Instead there was heavy dust on the curtains and unknown splatter stains on the wall. If, like others, they had a note saying 'we've taken extra care to clean touch points' or something, it would have made me feel more comfortable. The TV remote for example, was incredibly grim and clearly not clean.

The inside was very old, and not a reflection of the beautiful exterior, it has clearly never been renovated internally. Old red pub type carpets, creaking floorboards and poor decor stood out on going to the room.

Windows in the room had gaps in the frames too, so there was little 'soundproofing' which comes from having double glazed windows. As the rooms were small and corridors narror, you could hear outside the room, although I will say it was quiet and they had signs telling you to be quiet at night.

The room itself was incredible small. Smaller than any hotel room I've stayed in before, including Travelodge etc. There was a tiny gap, for example, between the bed and the hangers, so you had to side step or climb the bed. I booked this 3 star hotel thinking the standard of rooms would be good, but it was smaller than my bedroom at home.

Parking amply available behind the building, but I was very lucky to have free parking to the left of the property, as I arrived after 18:30.

I personally wouldn't stay here again, as even at Travelodge you'd get a better standard and more room.. As I say however, the team were lovely and I appreciate you cannot change the interior design and room layout... I just wish the photos reflected that a little clearer before I booked.

Thanks.

I stayed here for 3 nights during March 2020.The hotel is just opposite Finsbury Park, with bus stop just outside ,between Manor House and Finsbury Park tube stations ( Piccadily & Victoria lines ),its a ratherly small hotel but its very nice and very clean with great staff.All the people that i interacted with (front desk , cleaners , breakfast staff ) were amazing willing to help with a smile. The room was at the small size but adequate and very clean.It is a quiet hotel , high quality of sleep , with basic breakfast but it has all the neccessary items. You can take the bus no 29 ( stop at 10 m from the hotel ) bothways : southbound to Traffalgar sq. or northbound to Wood Green Shopping city.
My overall impression was extremely positive , i recommend this hotel and i would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Small carpark have to get there early to get a space then pay £10 for the privilege and then register your number plate then put a bit of paper in the window screen to say you staying in their carpark! If you get there after 6 maybe worth parking on the road as its free then !
A warm welcoming from the receptionist all info given.
Room(105) downstairs there's a lift to all the floor's
The room was a good size shower room was small
Bed was ok had a decent sleep though you could feel a draft from the window above the bed and the window was shut .
Good WiFi
Excellent powerful shower
Breakfast included
An average choice on offer
They don't do evening meals but lots of restaurants within a ½ mile walk away
Lots of paths good for walks and running.
Would I stay again and recommend YES 👍

Stayed in an accessible room 108 for one night last Saturday as a mate and I were at The Waiting Room to see MALKA (great gig).
The room was very clean and had 2 single and 1 double bed. Very comfy. One of the best showers I've ever had in a hotel and the extractor fan worked!!
Reception staff were charming and professional. We needed directions to get into the carpark (£10 charge on top of the very reasonable £149 cancellable room rate which included breakfast).
The brek was self service and good value. The ? oven baked bacon was good quality but tough due to over cooking. Decent sausage, scrambled eggs, tinned tomatoes etc. HP sauce was to hand. Good choice of juices, cereals, pastries, cheese. The toaster was one of those belted ones and was actually set properly for a good 1st time toasting. There was a choice of teas and coffee and spreads. There was a very professional lady on duty who was on top of cleaning and finding the marmalade.
I'd deffo stop here again if coming down from Birmingham.
Btw, the Jolly Butcher in Stoke Newington does great food and ales.

An excellent, affordable location to visit anywhere in central London using the tube, which is approximately 5 minutes walk. The onsite car park charged at £10.00 is an added bonus. The breakfast was brilliant, with lots of choice of hot and cold food, and plenty of drinks too.

First of all, the hotel and staff are lovely...rooms are small but adequate with comfortable beds and a really good shower. We were in room 203 at the front of the building and unfortunately had one of the lights from the front of the hotel shining right into our window and the curtain's didn't do a great job at keeping the light out but it wasn't a massive issue for me. The staff are all extremely pleasant from the reception staff to the cleaners...everyone said hello and had a smile on their faces. In my opinion, breakfast wasn't great at all and if I were to stay here again I wouldn't have it but I'm sure it will suit people who want to quickly grab something to eat in the morning.

Booked to be close to an event at the Ally Pally, great locality to the tube stations for this and access to city centre.
Staff were lovely and helpful, room was nice and clean. Few wee things needed looked at to to bring it up to 100% - net curtains were grey and needed a wash, fan was covered in dust and shower hose needed replaced (more water came out the hose than the shower head)
Room was comfortable and although it was beside a busy road, the ear plugs provided means that I got a good nights sleep.
Breakfast was good, coffee was terrible!
Would definitely book again.

Get the tube from Heathrow to the nearest tube station to the hotel which I think is probably Manor House. The hotel is a short walk away.

You could get any a bus from a stop on the same side as the the hotel and go to Finsbury Park Tube station (5 minutes). Buses normally very frequent (turn left out of the hotel). From Finsbury Park you can get the Piccadilly Line to, say, Leicester Square - takes about 15 minutes. Otherwise take the Victoria Line to Oxford Circus. About 12 minutes. You can also get any bus from a stop on the other side of the road from the hotel go to Manor House tube station (frequent and takes 2 minutes). Then take the Piccadilly Line. A few minutes more than from Finsbury Park. Manor House station is a bit nicer than Finsbury Park station. Please note that the timings are approximate and for normal timetables. The corona situation might affect travel times and frequency.
