As expected from inner-city inn style hotel
Generally I was pleased with the Great Expectations. The service from staff both at the bar and at reception was great; friendly and polite throughout. My room (5 on 1st floor) was ok. The Shower mixer tab was damaged, and the soap stand had old soap scum on it so not been cleaned. The curtains were a cross between ye olde chinz and sun bleach faded. The TV remote was not for the TV in my room so couldnt change the channel from news 24. As I was only one floor above the bar with live "music" it was quite loud but not too loud not to be able to sleep. Inclusive breakfast was OK. It is served in the bar, but was clean and laid out in preparation for guests arriving. There was a selection of Kellog's cereals and juices/coffee on the counter to help yourself. Cooked breakfast including danish and full english was also available, but you had to ask as no menu was available. I ordered poached egg and sausage with toast. I got a fried egg and sausage toasted sandwich but I just broke it down again to its components for consumption. It's not what I asked for but was nice enough. I would stay here again as the price outweighed any of the cons detailed above.

Great value in Charles Dickens themed hotel.
We only stayed a night, as we had just arrived from Paris and were intending to pick up a car the next day. The rooms were clean and adequate, and fine for the price. The staff were helpful and the meals were lovely. The hotel is where Charles Dickens did some readings, and it had a Charles Dickens theme that gave the place an atmosphere of culture. There were only two shortcomings: there was no lift and, therefore, the stairs were a nightmare particularly with luggage; and the place is actually a local pub, which gets filled with locals who are oblivious to its cultural heritage and are more interested in watching football and detracting from the atmosphere. That being said, it was good value and, being within striking distance from London (about 40 minutes by train), would be better value that staying closer in.
