6/10 Good

Good, but not great
Overall it was a good place to stay, but the staffing and organisation felt a little chaotic. Things like wanting to order from room service, but available menu on website was badly out of date, and room phone wasn’t working. That meant trips up and down from the bar/restaurant to get order placed. The Grab and Go food service was a nice idea, but when we needed it after missing breakfast, there was only 3 “breakfast” type items where there was space for way more. Really handy for the Excel centre, and it was easy to get to, park, and use public transport from, but expected a bit more from it for pricing etc!

8/10 Very good

Staff were polite and helpful at all times, and the check-in was very smooth. The twin room was spacious for two people, and was comfortable and clean. The hotel is well situated for London with the DLR stop on the same level and only a two minute walk to the upper entrance.

10/10 Exceptional

Very enjoyable one night stay.
Had a lovely night stay, the hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly, the room was comfortable. I requested a room on the top floor for the views, which was accommodated. Food in the restaurant was spot on and not too expensive. We went to a show at the O2, easy journey from the DLR station outside
