Comfortable, quiet and clean. Thank you!

Very nice people. Room is clean. Nice stay.
Mlle. Tania P

Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my trip -- the accommodation was just enough for my needs. Good location, clean, great and friendly staff (in the office, management, security, and cleaning staff). Everyone was very accommodating! I have already told my family about this accommodation option for our upcoming trip to the UK again. Hope to see you all again.

An excellent location for my volunteer shifts in the Olympic Park. Got used to the trains and the unit was quiet, much appreciated after long shifts.
Ms Judith G

it was a most satisfying first experience I'll recommend it for sure

I had a lovely stay at Loring Hall--the space was just right for one person, and the staff were friendly and helpful during my whole stay. I only regretted that I could not stay longer!
Dr Christina Marie D

Excellent location, close to train station. Room very good, only downside was the train line being really close to the room,so could hear the trains going by. Otherwise brilliant room.
Mr Kevin G

Perfect for me. Cheap, basic but clean room with plenty of hot water, heater, comfortable bed and good Wifi. Quiet, too, and on easy bus route to centre (453,53). I will stay again.
