Not going back

Lumpy uncomfortable beds which they really need to update, showers with low water pressure, service not great but not awful, food is typical British quality (in other words: not great). Location next to Regent st which has lots of restaurants to go to, so that was a plus. Also walking distance to national rail station so you can jump on the train to London. Distance still a bit too far to drag a big suitcase there though. We have stayed there twice: December 2006 and July 2007. This last time we stayed at the Garden Hotel which was only slightly more expensive, but definitely worth the switch. Their beds were not that great either though! I think British Hotels don't have high standards for comfortable beds compared to the U.S.
