Chose this as had great rating on Booking.com and sounded an interesting alternative for a hotel needed for stopover between Gatwick and Heathrow.
Location, whilst not in central London is great - very easy to get to from gatwick with a quick change at Clapham Junction - quicker than getting to a central London hotel. And only about £25 from Heathrow in taxi.
I won't reiterate what others have said, other than to add that first room offered was by kitchen fans and very noisy, second overlooked internal courtyard and was quiet and spot on. Toiletries, tea coffe etc top notch, and bed very comfortable.
Bar was too busy to drink / eat in comfortably in evening so went into London - local options are out there but limited. It's only 20 mins to Oxford Circus (changing at Vauxhall to tube) and much easier to negotiate than expected. The windmill pub does great pies in Mayfair and a short walk from Oxford Circus in Mill Street - may need a map to find.
Breakfast good and staff very personable.
Great option as alternative to usual London hotels and will use again.
