This hotel is the most dirty hotel we have ever stayed in. It was basic beyond belief and everything was dirty and there were even tiny insects everywhere!!! We left the hotel to try to find somewhere else to stay but unfortunately due to it being a Saturday night everywhere else was fully booked. Most horrendous night sleep we have ever had. I contacted the manager of the hotel and sent photos of our room, he replied to say he would get back to us but never did and I've tried again since and still no reply. Shocking service!!
The hotel is difficult to find because there are no signages leading to it. Google map said we have arrived in our destination but we were standing in front of Pembury Hotel. Apparently, Pembury Hotel also do the check in of Queens Drive which is located behind this fairly new-looking hotel. Dodgy from the very beginning. The hotel should not be called a hotel. It looks scary and unsafe. The room does not inspire confidence too. We tried viewing other rooms in Queens Drive but all looks the same except for the bottom room which is a little bit bigger with a better layout. With the price we paid it is still not fair to argue that we get what we deserve. If you have very limited budget and just needs a room to crash in this might do. But if you are particular with your safety and quality for a fair price you won't get it here. We wasted a paid one-night stay here because when we were asking for a refund the receptionist said only the manager can do it. I emailed the manager the following day but did not get a response. We will never recommend this place to anyone. Totally not worth it.
Used the hotel as is located within a stones throw of Finnsbury park station. Budget rooms, but clean. Don't forget to check in at the hotel on the main road opposite the park! Cost us 7GBP for a taxi to Ally Pally, result! Got woken up by my cleaner, hours past check out time with no problems, thank you!
This hotel is seriously bad I recommend nobody to stay here!! Looking at all the other reviews we all feel the same take you're money somewhere else !! the rooms are old damp, dusty,disgusting, and smells bad! They say you get a free breakfast they lie u have to pay for a full English u get a (continental breakfast) which is pork, cheese, and a bit of cows milk cereal no healthy food no fruits or vegetables no main very low budget food and because me and my friend asked for almond or Coconut milk or soya because we don't eat diary! they had the women at the reception her name is Sevtlana who was really rude about it completely not understanding that the hotel needs to cater for all types of health conditions a lot of people don't eat diary you should know this !! as a hotel charging people £55 a night and more!! They need to fix up big time would never come here again and sorry forgot to mention no heating in you're rooms its freezing!! you're remote doesn't work for the tv and the drawers are all broken trust me find somewhere better it's the worst !!!
Seriously, unless as a very last resort, don't bother with this place!! Hostel accommodation at hotel prices. Dank, damp, dusty bedroom. Heavily stained and dirty furniture. £20 overnight parking charge for guests. No wifi, except in the main hotel lobby. Dirty, dank, dusty, damp....... Oh..... Seriously, don't bother!
Booked the hotel as its cheap, includes breakfast and discounted parking. First the parking was £20/day. Second their are 3 separate buildings but one hotel name so we went through each building to find our room. When we actually found the building where our room was located the building was old and it looks like a grave yard. smell of damp as you walk in the hall and in the room and was tiny and not even presented well. The chair that was in there beside the chest of drawers has loads of stains of god knows what. The shower pressure is so slow might as well not have a shower. The toilet is broken and not flushing properly. Seriously! This place needs to get sorted out. So, if your a sruffy person then this place is for you but if not then better look somewhere else. I do not recommend this place at all even to my worst enemy! Here are just some of the pictures that ive taken in the room!
This isn't actually a hotel, it is a large converted house and I use the word 'converted' very loosely! It is located behind - and is part of the Pembury hotel. The room was very small although it did contain a wardrobe (with 2 hangers), a chest of drawers, a dining chair and a TV. The bed was an old divan with no headboard, springs coming through and there were 2 very flat pillows. There was a sheet covering the mattress and a very thin duvet. The en suite contained toilet, sink and shower (which was in fact a mixer tap with shower hose). The room was freezing cold! There wasn't even enough room in the bathroom for a loo roll holder! Tiles in the shower were broken and the shower dripped all night. The toilet could only be flushed every half an hour and once flushed, you couldn't use the shower either as it just trickled cold water until the water pressure had built up. Breakfast was taken in the Pembury hotel and was supposed to be continental, which we'd have been happy with. In reality, the continental breakfast was a choice of corn flakes or muesli, white or brown bread, ham and (processed) cheese, tea or coffee and orange juice (from a carton). If you want a croissant or pastry, you have to pay extra and there was no sign of fruit or yogurt. On our second morning there wasn't even any bread left! I don't think that this is a hotel at all, rather used to house Monday - Friday low paid workers, with the rooms rented out to tourists at weekends. Even at £75 per night, it was a rip off! I'd have got more sleep in the underground tunnels!
A family trip for four people. A trade-off between economy, and proximity to sightseeing locations. A quick booking at Booking.com for a Quadruple room. (No meal option was chosen in the booking) The information that customers need to check in at the Pembury hotel, was a bit surprising. The information on the Booking.com confirmation was, `Customers need to check in at the Pembury Hotel, which is behind Queens Drive Hotel: 326328 Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, London N4 2AP.' On reaching there, one found out the reason: it is a part of the same property. Reached London on AI 115, DEL-LHR on time. 20 May (Tue), 2015. Took a cab from Heathrow airport. A 90 pounds setback, but then there was a bit of luggage. The room had two single and one double bed. Room on the second floor (British system), which the Americans refer to as the third floor. Nice and clean room, but no lift. Narrow staircase, so carrying luggage was a bit of an effort. The Internet signal did not reach the room. One had to reach the lounge for Internet access. The bathroom was clean and spacious. There is a switch that had to be pushed for for hot water. The stay was peaceful, since the room was at the back of Pembury Hotel. Mostly quiet and tranquil, with a very big park opposite the property. One morning, the wake-up call came from a faulty fire alarm. Breakfast was at 2 pounds, with extra for eggs. Juice, tea, coffee, cereals, sausage, cheese, butter, bread and some assortment of jams. Overall, satisfying stay. Nice location, well-connected, on a bus route, with lots of grocery shops nearby. Lots of restaurants nearby. For meals, patronised a Bangladeshi restaurant, which even offered a free rice plate. Set out 23 May (Sat) for Paris Nord via St. Pancras on the 9040 Eurostar.
Hotel was bad, very small bathroom, doors were very noisy. The towells were changed every day, the receptionists very nice. The breakfeast was very poor, consists of: bread, butter, gem, ham and cheese, some cereals (very bad quality), one type of black tea, bad coffee, milk and cocoa. It was in zone 2, close to the underground (5-10 minutes)
Don't use this hotel. No staff ever there, door on hotel room didn't shut, so had to use a chair at night for security, tiles dropped off in shower. Says traditional cooked and continental breakfast in the details but all we was given was toast with rubbery cheese and ham and cereal. Rooms also got mixed up because the receptionist admitted she wasn't listening to me and got confused with another family. What a waste of money, won't be going there again
