I stayed for one night on the 24th May 2012.
The Good points;
The hotel is in an excellent location, large car park and the bar/restaurant was very nice.
The Bad points,
To get to the room was like a mission from the krypton factor, we had to walk along a very long corridor, take a lift, then another long corridor than another lift to the 3rd floor.
Along the very long walk one had time to take in all the delights of the threadbare carpet and little holes in the wall and to see the years of TLC that has sadly been lacking there.
The room, although clean, was extremely small and far more basic then a Travel Lodge or Western Inn. The furniture looked very old and dated.
The bed was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep, until 8:51am when one of the staff starting banging on the door. I opened the door and asked what was the matter, to be told ‘Oh I’ll come back later to clean the room’. 8:51am is a wee bit early to be banging on the door.
Now being half awake we both decided to get up and have a cup of tea and shower. I had a very lovely shower, then about 20mins later my partner had a shower to which there was no hot water, so she just had a cold one.
Upon checkout I informed the receptionist that the hot water had stopped. She apologised and said ‘oh that must be George doing something’.
My partner and I decided to take advantage of the health faculties, as the hotel stated on their website (and still does!) that for a fee of £10 guests of the hotel can use all the faculties at Repton Park Health Club.
The receptionist said they could not issue us with a pass, as Repton Park had changed ownership and the hotel had no deal or permission. This did upset me as this was and still is advertised on their website. http://www.menzieshotels.co.uk/hotels/london-hotels/london-hotel-facilities
The Hotel is basically a 2 Star hotel in a 4 Star building and location.
