Liked: The building is beautiful, totally worth seeing! Also the staff is very friendly and the eat-as-much-you-can breakfast reasonably priced, which I find very rare nowadays.

Disliked: The pillows in the beds are so flat, that you could almost sleep without one. Bathrooms should have more hooks and maybe plastic carpets inside the showers, because now there was no place to set my cloths and the whole floor of the bathroom was really slippery because of the flooding water.

Liked: Very charming Victorian building. Easy to reach from Stansted Airport, Two tube stations are located close by that get you to central London real fast. Free coffee, drinks at the bar at a really good price.
