THPT Comment: This interesting hotel company, who choose to keep a low-profile, has a unique approach to locations – the lesser known (for hotels) periphery areas of London – Peckham, Croydon, Wembley, Leyton and now Tooting, with Crystal Palace and Greenwich under construction – only a London taxi driver would know these locations! But well-done I am sure they are all crying out for a decent hotel. The company has chosen Best Western and Accor Ibis as brands.
