Not only was the staff friendly but they helped with all of our questions about the town and hospital. The rooms were clean and felt very safe. I Would highly recommend and will stay here every time I'm in London, Ontario.

The place is quite inexpensive and located on what looks like a former nunnery - gorgeous property. The cheapest rooms require sharing at least a shower - not for everyone but it didnt bother me. My Queen room itself was quite large with decent storage. It lacked a table or suitecase stand but there was space to put it on... More

Good Morning! thank you for your review! We appreciate the feedback and are always looking for ways to improve! The coffee is just Folgers, so I'm sorry you had a bad batch. We do try to do regular checks on the third floor but I agree that with the desk on the second floor someone may feel a little better... More

Found the place from another online booking system and was really amazed by the quality of the accommodation there. The place is clean and the staff is helpful. And it is very close to the university. You can enjoy a peaceful sleep in the most comfortable bed in the world, walk in the great nature around the Thames river in... More

The Guest House on the Mount was previously a hospice for religious nuns. It is located on top of a hill, in a beautiful and quiet location, right on the Thames River in London, ON. The Guest House is very reasonably priced; the rooms come with or without showers; and the entire complex is close to the local hospital, Western... More

I started off at the other end of London. Driving 4 hours a day, back and forth to university hospital. A friend told me about this place so I had a look and moved in the next day. 2 minutes from the hospital, cheap rates, cooking facilities , free wifi and laundry. No bells and whistles but perfect, safe and... More

My first visit was awkward to say the least. The parking lot was confusing as to where the entrance was. Drove around aimlessly looking for someone to help with directions. Finally just wanted to get to my room to sleep. The Window doesn't lock apparently which has balcony access and outer doors leading to the balcony. Was told don't worry... More

Hello there! We know the windows can be an issue! They are unfortunately a little older so the locks aren't always up to par. We will definitely look into this a little farther! I'm happy to hear your second visit was a little more comfortable! With our proximity to the hospital we understand these families can be our highest clientele.... More

We had stayed from Friday to Monday, as my grandfather had open heart surgery. After driving around aimlessly to even find where the "hotel" was, we went up to book a room. They do NOT come with a full bath, and if you are the lucky early bird to get one, they charge you extra. We were put in room... More

Hello there, I'm sorry to hear your experience with us wasn't a great one. We do have quite a few different room styles, so if a reservation is not made in advance the full bathrooms do tend to be the first to go. We try not to advertise as a full service hotel as we aren't able to offer some... More

This place was clean and was located on a nice, green hilltop close to campus and the Thames River. The room was clean but strongly resembled a pimped out hospital room (pimped out because of the small tv, desk, and Queen sized bed which was quite comfy. The hospital smell was quite strong. There was a nice shared kitchen area... More

I still can't decide if the lack of amenities and unusual layout is worth the savings. $70, not even to have my own shower? Stayed in a room with two single beds and a small and outdated half bath (ancient industrial toilet and sink only). Lack of a counter in the wash room made it awkward to get ready. If... More

I stayed here for an extended stay. The front desk staff & housekeeping were never helpful or friendly. The kitchen was always dirty (sink full of dishes, dirty coffee maker, no clean dishes or tea towels,dirty shelves in the fridge) and the floors in my room were never clean. The duvet cover on the bed smelled so bad I insisted... More
