Yes it does seem to be large groups of students being marched through on the way to CP Station - either that or standing in huge groups at the 249 bus stops at Church Rd or Anerley Hill going to or from the station. Real shame that they don't hang out in the triangle too.

I do see smaller parties too though, presumably not big student groups - maybe they partake of local delights?

When the extension is built the first thing I'm going to do is book a room......and chuck CitM and NL in it. The simmering sexual tension is most evident .......

Won’t you be to busy in the room next door with Dazza- You will have so much to catch up on ;)


P.S I want one of the new rooms if they are approved and not the manky old ones.

Dear Saint,

While you're at it (pun intended!) can you fix it for NL to have a room-mate upgrade, I know, I know, it's going to be tough upgrading la belle citizen but I'm sure it's within your earthly powers - Kelly Brooks perhaps??

Lots of love

citizen M

ps NL - if his Holiness cannot manage the upgrade I'll stand in for Kelly as long as we're on the fifth floor...

Top posting from Norwood Lad and SL.

What seems to be being forgotten, unless I am reading lazily, is that the proposed extension is merely rebuilding what used to be there before a fire burned it down in the 70s.

The QH is vastly better looking as a result of the owner's recent attempts at facelifts, and I applaud anyone who is willing ot invest like that in our area.

That said, I wouldn't stay there myself : too many bad reports from people I know who have.

The Queens would look a lot better without the ghastly 1970's block

Love the hotel, and the tourists. Hate the parking & road safety situation it creates.

Was knocked off my bike outside there last year - fortunately the dozy muppet who hit me from behind was only doing 10mph or so. Church Road is, supposedly, one of the main routes on the London Cycle Network, but because of overspill parking from the hotel there's no room to put in bike lanes (which at the traffic speed & volume you get on Church Rd., are necessary). There's no room to ride in at the edge of the road, or for people to overtake safely.. you have to merge with 30+mph "A"-road traffic & hope for the best.

All the houses around there have generous off street parking & there's plenty for shoppers on the Triangle.. seems to me they need to replace the awful traffic islands (crap for pedestrians, crap for cyclists, not much better for drivers) with Zebras; if they removed on-street parking & central reservation there's enough space for proper cycle lanes. The council have said they can't do it because removing the parking there would be "unacceptable to residents".. but I doubt somehow it's residents' cars when the old houses have enormous driveways & the new ones have both driveways and garages.

Assume the sign "Quality Hotel" came after the 70's block. I do like a nice modern addition to a period building - really good ones are quite rare, so yes ghastly it is and Quality it is not, and nor is the accommodation. And, with Quality Solicitors on the corner of Church Road/Westow Street, hasnt the area gone quality mad? Shouldn't we rename Church Road Quality Street?

Not all have enormous driveways, and many of the big houses are divided up into several flats - if each have at least one car then the driveways won't cope.

I very much agree with the idea of zebra crossings - it would slow traffic down (often aggressive nutters use Church Rd as a kind of mad mile speed wise) and make life much safer for the scores of people from the language school and Hotel that scuttle for their lives across the Church Rd.

This long running saga finally got permission last month so an extra 24 rooms it is.

 

Erection of four storey front/side extension (including lower ground, ground, first and second floors) to provide an additional 24 rooms; alteration of car parking arrangement and associated landscaping works.

Queens hotel, fresh from getting an extension approved now want to ram another 56 rooms in.

 

However they are proposing to get rid of the massive Banqueting function room and squeeze in 2 levels of rooms. Can’t say these will be pleasant rooms as I doubt the sound proofing would be up to scratch and all those in rooms to the right look like they will have no natural light.

 

Those lucky to get a room on the far wall will have a tiny slither of a upvc window to look out on that can’t be opened. This windows were recently put in as the hotel put in an application to get more natural light into the function room.

 

I have no problem with the hotel here as I think it’s good for the town centre but this is surely a step to far?
