Really nice room, friendly staff, lovely and clean the pub next door was really nice too! Only annoying thing was that trip adviser had it listed in hotels close to Electric Brixton, it said it was 1.1 miles away but when I arrived it was actually 2.4 miles away

Hospitality is not only about the place rooms or facilities it's a feeling that you are actually welcome and that the hotel staff are invested in ensuring that you will have all you need. This hotel delivers with the Brasilian guy at the front desk who is at the top of his game and he did everything he could to...

Great room, friendly staff, brilliant location and excellent price. Premier Inn standard but half the price. Just remember to bring your own travel iron as they don't have any. Room came with tea/coffee point, hair dryer, mini fridge and flat screen tv.

Hotel was further from Clapham Junction than I expected (walking) but had a friendly reception on arrival. Room is basic and clean with comfortable beds. Good bathroom. Tea making Plus a fridge. Be warned the traffic is quite loud and if you are not used to it - take earplugs with you.

No breakfast but a decent cafe across the road (the common room). Good location next to Clapham South tube. Noisy as next to a busy road but used ear plugs and...

We stayed here as we were attending a concert on the common. We were met with a very friendly and helpful receptionist, our room was very clean and tidy, upon first impression was a bit on the small side however considering the reasonable cost it is more than adequate. Would certainly stay again if we are local.

Well run hotel in an ideal location, two minutes walk from the tube station and Clapham Common. It was a great base for my travels around London. Clean and comfortable rooms with all the facilities you'd need. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of choice nearby for cafés, shops and bars. I wish they provided breakfast but everything else...
