Sarah McDermott, White British

Hanover Hotel London was in an excellent location with Victoria Station just a few minutes walk, taxi fares were also cheap from the hotel around London. Rooms could be better but got what I paid for, breakfast was in a tiny room with everyone cramped together and I believe this could be improved
