Comment: Was marketed as a 4 star hotel while under the Comfort Inn branding but under the Holiday Inn express branding the rating is 3 star. These are self ratings. Was known as The Vauxhall Hotel for a short while being rebranded from a Comfort Inn hotel to a Holiday Inn Express Hotel. Was called the Comfort Inn Vauxhall Hotel until 2014. Hotel opened for the first time in 2000.
