Very Good 8.0
Tiny rooms but clean
*Tiny* rooms and no elevator (which I was aware of before booking). No landline phone in the room, nor are there those “do not disturb” door hangers, which lead to housekeeping nearly walking in on me one morning. Location could not be better if you have a morning train to catch!

Location perfect
We loved the location, close to many transportation opportunities, and price for the room was very reasonable. The room was perfect. Clean and comfortable, breakfast was delicious and served with a smile. Our special requests were satisfied. Had a wonderful stay. Manager was especially patient when i blew a circuit plugging in the wrong device. Had problem fixed quickly.

Not impressed
What this hotel has going for it - location, for sure. It was very close to St. Pancras. And the service at breakfast was very nice, and there was a a nice English breakfast provided. However, we would not stay there again and wouldn't recommend it. Our room (#7) was a decent size, but the twin beds were quite hard. That wasn't a deal breaker, however. It was the bathroom. Not only the tiniest bathroom I have seen (and I have seen some very small ones at similar hotels in London), but in terrible condition. The miniscule sink wouldn't drain water, so we had to turn on the shower to brush teeth, wash hands, etc. The floor and water damaged door looked pretty gross. The "bath mat" was a piece of paper, which was useless.

The facilities are in poor condition. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls. There was mold growing on the bathroom door. We chose to leave.

No Airport Shuttle - although advertised
The location was very close to King’s Criss station which was wonderful. BUT, the website indicates an Airport Shuttle as a “Main Amenity”; unfortunately there is NO shuttle to the airport, which is the main reason I selected this hotel.

The hotel has steep, narrow stairs and no elevator. Navigating the stairs with a big, heavy suitcase was a precarious undertaking and hotel staff does not offer to carry suitcases. Room was also very small.

Skip it unless must be by train.
Beware if respiratory issues. 4 flights of stairs. Then very strong odor of room deodorizer left me sick by morning. Room redone and clean but just quirky bad layout with tinyuneven bathroom floor. My fault for not being aware of stair issue but skip unleashed next door to train. For young backpacker types not for older adults.Have stayed in many b and b English hotels but just did not like this one or the attitude of checkin.

Cute family ran hotel
We stayed at this hotel in July and was literally right down the street from the train station, which was super convenient since that was our means of transportation across Europe. Room had a fan which helped with the air circulation, but was still not enough to keep the room cool. The breakfast tasty and was a nice touch to our stay. I would definitely stay here again
