          • Family with children
            6.6

            The staffs always keep to time

            Double bed too small

          • Older travelers
            9.0

            Room was basic but very clean. It was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good. Just what we expected for the price we paid.

            We picked this hotel as there was a bar, but there was never a bar person around when we were there.

          • Family with children
            5.4

            Staff friendly, breakfast good, location good

            Not very clean, beds not very comfortable - lack of pillows.

          • Single
            2.8

            everything was dirty bad electrics broken bed very noisy

          • Single
            7.0

            The staff were very friendly and welcoming, I felt safe as a woman on her own

            The radiator had an annoying "rattle" which kept me awake during the night.

          • Couple
            2.8

            very basic, poor cleanliness of en-suite bathroom, wires to TV hanging off the wall. Didnt stay for breakfast

          • Family with children
            2.8

            Nothing.

            Please please do not stay at this hotel unless you want to pay to sleep in a bedsit it is awful we booked it because we had last minute tickets for the olympics and it was close to stratford but apart from that it was disgusting.the staff were rude could not understand english the room was filthy furniture second hand lights kept going out in the room window not closing properly the list goes on if it was not for the fact we had tickets and could not find another hotel we would have left.i have booked a lot of hotels through bookings but this by far is the worst.TRUST Me do not stay there.

          • Couple
            8.8

            The room was a double room, very good price, very comfortable. I would stay here again, the Breakfast wasn't great, but that is not really a problem. Overrall, I was very pleased with the nights stay.

            The Breakfast was not the best, but it was ok. The floorboards were very squeaky, but nothing else really. Very good.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            We chose the Banks because of the price, the fact that it was situated close to the train station and it also offered free car parking (which in a London hotel can vary between £15 and £25 a day on top of your room). A full help yourself cooked breakfast is also included. The hotel itself is a row of Victorian terrace houses that have been knocked through, so don't be deceived from the outside photo - its not what you expect when you get inside! However, the small room was clean and adequate. Its a short walk to the train station with trains going every 10 minutes into the heart of London and also the new Westfield shopping centre. There is a great Wetherspoons pub just around the corner from the hotel which offers cheap drinks and food. All round, a good budget hotel if you don't want to splash out! Very quiet at night too.

            Annoying things like no towel rails or shelves in the bathroom. We were only given one tiny piece of soap for our two day stay. There is no mirror near a plug so it was impossible to see whilst drying my hair! The mirror in the bathroom was set so low you had to crouch down to see in it!!

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Location

            Strong smell of greasy cooking in the morning. Food looked good, but as they could not keep up with demand we left only having cereals and toast.

          • Couple
            5.0

            The breakfast and the staff were friendly. The location was superb as being a muslim there were plenty of halal places to eat from locally and also travelling to central london and tourist attractions was nearby.

            The room that me and husband stayed in felt claustrophobic.... The bathroom was so so small and tight for space... Also the room was small and very tight. Didnt feel comfortable and didnt really have a good nights sleep as the following early morning the staff cleaners are talking loud along the corridors, vacumming and banging the doors.. Sleep is extremly important.

          • Group of friends
            3.2

            There was a horrible sewage smell just outside the room, the room door was hard to get into without assistance, the heat was so stifling in the room it was uncomfortable, the shower was either freezing cold or scalding hot. Would never stay again.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The staff, I have stayed in a lot of hotels a lot of them 4 and 5 star, my friend told me about this hotel, and I have to say the staff at the hotel were better than 5 star customer service....... I would love to meet your staff in other hotels where I stay, well done to Banks hotel for there customer service and cleaning staff,the location is perfect for reaching central London in 17 minutes,Lovely buffet breakfast, and late night bar added extra to our pleasant stay.the hotel is recently refurbished and definitely more than value for money, it was the best and keep up the good work as I will be back and will bring my family and friends with me...

          • Couple
            3.2

            I know this isn't a complaint form- but after sending a separate email I still have not had a reply. It was awful- rat poison boxes in the bedroom,& no tv remote, thin pillows, no toilet roll, poor staff manners, poor breakfast (cold and lack of choice), no towels! We went to pick the tv remote off of the floor and it was a box full of rat poison (I have photo's) it was just disgraceful; and then we had to wait about 10 minutes at reception for a tv remote whilst the man had a personal conversation on the phone! There was no toilet roll or towels, which made us feel very uneasy to go back and ask. How can you put this hotel on your website as a recommendation!

          • Group of friends
