Recent guest reviews
Stayed 2 nights with my 3 kids. Had family room. Aim was to see a bit of Central London and visit Harry Potter World. Would recommend without hestitation. Basic but functional facilities - but for £60 for 4 including breakfast this was great value. Good breakfast but some early as tables a bit limited. Sofa bed was broken on first night - staff changed our room without hesitation. Easy bus transport to Golders Green tube. Restaurant is OK with generous portions. No kids menu though. Free parking though limited in number - ignore the FULL sign outside. All in all a top Place. Will stay again
Booked for a one night stay to attend an event at the Alexandra Palace. Easy check in. Hotel staff friendly and arranged our taxi to the event. Secure on site parking. Breakfast as expected. Would recommend as a convenient stay over for the Ally Pally.
The rooms were comfortable, but I found it inconvenient living out of my suitcase for nearly a week. There are no cupboards, and no in-room safe. There's a notice in the rooms saying that the hotel isn't responsible for theft and that valuables should be kept in a safe next to reception. However the were no safes available. The staff were very attentive to all needs. The toilet blocked in the middle of the night and the staff were there there within minutes to fix it up. I also found the location very far out - need to take a long bus ride (no 13) into the city or a bus to Golders Green station and then a a tube into the city. I guess that the lower than city prices account for this.
I stayed here on for business recently. The car park was challenging, very few spaces were available and some were chained off (looked like rented out) so it was not a good first impression. The staff were amazingly pleasant, all of them did their very best to help during my stay. The room was fine - it is a Holiday Inn so don't expect miracles. I was tired so decided to eat in. The first two items I chose from the menu were unavailable and the one I chose (which I think was some kind of South American spicy chicken skewers) basically consisted of plain microwaved chicken with some dips. It was awful and I gave up immediately. So it was by no means a disaster, but some detail improvements would lift my score.
Well what a nice surprise! Lovely rooms and bar staff (yes it’s you Beverley you deserve employee of the year) that are friendly out of this world, and reception staff that printed a load of forms of for me when my portable printer blew....... Just excellent service and they even allowed me a little extra on the car park when I was late back from a VISA application in central London. Top breakfast, top rooms and top service. Don’t take second best stay with the best lol! Ace........
We were pleased that the double room we stayed in was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Despite the hotel being right next to a busy junction traffic noise did not bother us. We enjoyed a drink in the bar in the evening. The hot breakfast was not good, but there were plenty of alternatives including cereal and croissants.
My wife and I stayed one night and found the staff to be friendly and helpful and the hotel room clean and quite spacious for our needs. Breakfast was okay but would like more choice of eggs as only scrambled was on offer. Overall the stay was okay for the discounted price we paid.
I have had to stay in this hotel for buisness. I arrived at 22.30 last night and there was no room in the car park. I've had to park on the street near by. They had also stopped serving food. Other Holiday Inns in London and Manchester etc you can order food until 1.30 am or receive room service. They said the bar had shut even though I could still buy a drink by putting the cost on to my room. The wine choices are very limited and come in 187ml bottles. One staff member was speaking condescendingly to another member of staff which made it uncomfortable to sit at the bar and relax. The tv in the room is badly tuned and has very limited channels. Its like going back in time 15 years. The free wifi keeps going off and I have to keep putting the username and password ( which is a bunch of numbers) in every two hours. I have also had to order a takeaway, advised by the hotel, that promised a vat receipt ( as I'm on buisness) which I never received when paid. All in all, not too keen. Hopefully breakfast will be a better experience.
Like all hotels in this chain, you get a fairly basic room, comfortable bed, and good free Wi-Fi. What makes it special is the attitude and demeanor of the staff. Super friendly and enthusiastic, and any issues are immediately addressed. Highly recommended for a reasonably priced hotel near London.
Stayed here twice now, friendly staff, clean and tidy rooms and good a breakfast! But noisy outside with traffic, but hey it's London Great value for money and close to Alexandra palace and other areas...
