We were booked in at a nearby Hotel, but the noise factor was unbearable for normal people. In desperation, we called the Hampton while standing in the street at 7:30 on a Saturday evening. When the phone was answered and we explained our situation, we were immediately let in, shown the rooms and were welcomed and checked in. What an absolute lifesaver and great experience. The room was neat, clean, quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was ordered the night before and served on time in the room due to Covid 19 regulations/social distancing. A great experience with safe onsite parking for our motor bike.

We spent 3 nights at The Hampton over the Ironman 70.3 weekend and had a lovely stay. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The extra touches provided for us as athletes (energy drinks, energy bars, course maps) was a lovely gesture and so appreciated. Although Quigney isn't the most scenic area, the hotel has a lovely view over the sea, and the staff were friendly and attentive. We've booked our stay for next year already!

I did enjoy staying at The Hampton. The staff members were very friendly. It was raining and heavily cloudy for the 4 days there, however the room was very comfortable. The room we had was on the ground floor with a lousy and obstructed view of the sea. The dining area upstairs...that is where I got a splendid view of the sea.

I had an amazing experience living at the Hampton for 6 nights at the beginning of June 2023. I was happy with the complete deal, the location of the place, my unit, the staff and not forgetting the daily breakfast I enjoyed that gave me an awesome start each day. I will definitely recommend the Hampton to anyone visiting East London.

The staff is the best and they made my stay very pleasant. Always willing to help. Even after the AC did not work the smiles and friendliness of the staff I did not even care. If you are thinking in visiting East London you have to consider The Hampton

It's the perfect place to stay in if you want to really rest. The area is quiet and close to the beach. The staff are friendly and helpful.
I wish more people would give it a try. The rooms are clean and the cleaning staff always ready to assist.
