Liked: The location and price (with breakfast!) are amazing. Despite the rooms being a bit basic, it fitted our needs perfectly. Staff were unbelievably friendly and really informative about the local and wider area. Helped us out massively in a couple of situations. Sports facilities were great, and cheap for the area. Oh and the parakeets in the park are crazy!

Disliked: Building is looking a little tired in areas. Lifts could be temperamental at times. Otherwise great.

Liked: The advantage to having a fast connection to the city of London, through their public transport. For those who want to enjoy the pleasure of nature, the sports complex will allow a range of solutions from walking, swimming, tennis ... Quiet and peaceful.

Disliked: What angered me most, is no maintenance on the building, which deserves some improvement works. The elevator stopped on the wrong floor, and took a long time. Visibly some wear, the use of flats over the years.

Liked: For our first stay in London was great once we found our way around, with the bus station and train station within walking distance, clean rooms, decent bathroom and free wifi couldn't ask for much more

Liked: The staff was friendly and the surrounding area was lovely with the park spreading around the Lodge.

Disliked: It felt kinda dirty. It was clear that my room wasn't properly cleaned before I came in, as I could see the filth on fitted carpet, especially in the corners. The shower was worse, I didn't feel like taking proper showers there for two reasons: 1. It was dirty and 2: I only got cold water from it. Sheets were clean and new, but everything else felt smutchy.

Liked: Cheap and cheerful, no frills, does what it says on the tin, 1970's style building and decor. Not for the fussy or pampered, what you see is what you get.
