    Great place for a great price.

    Spacious rooms. Really good restaurant with good breakfast. The staff was curteous and professional. Always willing to help. Great value.

    Location was challenging! It’s a bit of a walk to the DLR. And a good ways from central London

    Blown Away!!!

    This hotel is about to complete renovations and it looks great. First the rooms are very nicely decorated, they have a great size and are very comfortable. For a hotel so close to the Airport you cannot hear a thing. Several airplanes landed and took off over night and I did not hear a thing from the outside. The rest of the hotel is incredible. The hotel restaurant serves great food, very high class, the quality is great. I would highly recommend eating at the hotel. I have only had bad experiences at Ramada's but if they all remodel to be like this one I would stay here always.

    Fine for a pre-flight stop

    Breakfast was excellent and the physical restaurant was a pleasant suprise. Also had some light fare in the bar in the evening and it was substantial and tasty.

    WIFI wasn't as good as I've come to expect from most places in London. The whole place looked a bit worn and could use a refresh.
