The Good
Many guests reported pleasant stays at this hotel. 

It was tucked away in south London's rural area, but conveniently located right by the 401 freeway, which made getting around quite simple and fast when travelling by car. Some found restaurants and shopping a short drive away.

The hotel and neighbourhood were quiet and guests enjoyed peaceful sleeps on pilloptop mattresses in very clean rooms, which were also described as renovated with new furniture and modern finishes. 

The price was reasonable and guests were typically pleased with the value. The free hot breakfast served in the hotel's restaurant added a lot to the sense of value received. It was served on real plates with real cutlery and offered a wide assortment of hot and cold food on the buffet and guests could enjoy it in the hotel's sunny and spacious dining area.

Guests often mentioned the welcoming feeling upon arrival when they first saw the fireplace and lobby. Although the staff were bashed sometimes online, many found them courteous, polite and helpful with directions to points of interest. They were also reported as being honest, with one guest writing, "My kid lost a computer in the room and I received a call when I was driving on the 401 highway."

The Bad
There was some negative feedback and critique of the services.

Some felt the location was a little out of the way with no restaurants, groceries or shops in walking distance and for some downtown London was also a bit of a drive.

A few guests missed having a means of watching a movie at the hotel. There were no pay-per-view movies or even a DVD player on hand. Very few cable channels made for boring TV options to the sophisticated modern travellers. Guests reported only 10 channels and no SN channel to watch the baseball game.

Although the rooms have been renovated, very occasionally a guest considered them a little dated. They mentioned depressingly-dark grey toilets, tubs and tub surrounds, older HVAC units and and musty or Febreeze odour in the rooms which gave this impression.

Although the hotel received good scores overall for its Wi-Fi and many said it worked fine, there were a few very disgruntled guests who found it to be poor, not strong enough for working, or only working in the lobby.

Some missed having an elevator during their stay, but the hotel has since installed one.
