    Short trip London

    Great location. Very close to Underground services and bus routes. Selection of restaurants nearby. Rooms clean and tidy. More like serviced room than hotel. Good sized bathroom. Beds comfortable and linen clean. Great for our purpose.

    Four star review

    Cannot fault friendliness and helpfulness of Reception staff. Exceptional. Room and bathroom were very clean and it was good to find so much storage space. Location was spot on for what we came to see at the V & A. Only disappointment was not being able to have breakfast in the hotel.

    Overnight Hotel

    Overnight stay for sporting event in the city. Room was clean, albeit a touch dated, but adequate. Bathroom clean and perfectly good. Location great, next to Gloucester Road tube station. Would use again if in that area for an overnight stay.

    Great apart from the lack of housekeeping

    Stayed here as a family of 3 in room 093 and really enjoyed our trip to London. Good location close to Gloucester Road tube station, cafes and Waitrose. Quiet road and a very spacious triple room with a modern en suite bathroom. Managed to get checked into room very early which was a bonus and left luggage facility on last day of stay. Only drawback was a lack of housekeeping while we were there. It was only after the 2nd time of going to ask for fresh towels was I told that there would be no housekeeping during our stay. Would definitely stay here again.

    Nice hotel in quite area

    Lovely quite area, welcoming staff. We arrived earlier than check in time so called to drop our luggage off but they let us have our room. Room nice, linen immaculate, bed comfy. Only disappointment was they was not doing breakfast. We did however discover a lovely place called the blackbird about a ten minute walk away on Euston Square Short walk to the underground ad well We had a lovely break in a nice hotel

    Short Break in South Kensington

    Great stay with wife and daughter, had the triple balcony room 101. I think we were the only ones in the Hotel so very quite and safe. All the team on the desk were excellent - I would definitely use again. Great location, close to the tube, supermarkets and restaurants.
