We stayed here in January 2017 and were disappointed. The room on our first visit was not that good. My wife cut her head on the soap dispenser in teh shower unit, and had to be taken to A & E. The hotel is in refurbishment mode and a lot of the floors smell of paint. The rooms are grubby...

Parking is impossible outside hotel but local multi storey car parks nearby and discounted by the hotel. We stayed on first floor, room clean and tidy, but no toiletries supplied although you can ask.. windows need replacing as they are metal framed and emtremely cold in mid January.. also let a lot of outside noise in.

Drawbacks: very bad facilities (red signs on the carpet, very noisy air condition for the heating, plastic cases for the hand soap and toilet paper which fall down when you just touch them. Positives: Rich breakfast

Everything as you would expect from the brand but with almost no parking (15.00 per day if you get one of the 6 spaces) and tucked away up an uninspiring alley. Having said that then Croydon is also an uninspiring place, so this was a little oasis in that concrete jungle.

As stated on our website, we do have limited parking spaces available onsite, on a first come first served basis.

Stayed two nights in December. Upon arrival I was as given 3 different keys to a room and talked to like I was an idiot by the manager because none of them worked. I was then I was transferred into a twin room when I booked a double. Will not be stopping here again.

Awful stay whilst in London.....avoid with a barge pole. Strong smell of paint gave us a headache and when we went to reception, they had only one other room that the window wouldn't close and it was freezing! To top it off, it took 15 minutes to check in as the room card machine didn't work properly. Freshly painted, with...

It's a Holiday Inn Express, so you know what to expect. Light, clean but basic rooms, normally no bar / restaurant but this one DOES have a bar. It's down an alleyway in the centre of Croydon so parking is limited, so check if they have space or go to one of the many local carparks. They found space for...

This is a great budget hotel. Good staff, easy checkin and nice and clean with the usual holiday inn brekkie. Only problem for me was the lack of on site parking ... I didn't arrive until 945 pm and walking from the car park on my own as a lone female traveller was not ideal. The post code for the...
