This hotel was such a pleasure to stay in. Great location across the street from the underground. Surprising quiet for being so close to the trains and having a pub downstairs. The rooms were very clean and the bathroom was supplied with every thing needed. There is no lift but offers to help with the luggage were frequent. The breakfast... More

This is very much a pub with rooms above. But those rooms are attractively decorated and well-equipped. The rug in the family room we were given was somewhat stained, but the room itself was clean and the beds comfortable. The staff are friendly and the location is excellent. I would rate the breakfast as goodish, not great. Coffee was instant... More

I was originally going to stay in a hostel to save money, but I'm glad I opted for the Wellington instead. David at reception was super friendly and helpful, nice full breakfast every morning, and the lotion/shampoo/shower gel were awesome - wish I'd found some to bring home with me. It was so convenient to Waterloo station, and I had... More

I needed a hotel close to Waterloo station for 3 nights as base (did not know Embankment station was shut, which made getting on the Central and Victoria lines a bit laborious) which was reasonably priced - The Wellington was perfect and excellent value for money. Reading on tripadvisor that there were no lifts, I requested a 1st floor room... More

It is convenient for Waterloo station. In fact the line its so close I can virtually touch the trains as they pass. You reach the room by a single staircase - no idea if there is any fire escape - which manages to incorporate all the smells of London you didn't ever want. The room is clean - if cupboard... More

I stayed a couple of weeks ago for one night only whilst I was in London for my son's graduation. The staff were very helpful & even upgraded me to a double room at no extra cost. This was much appreciated as it meant I was at the other side of the hotel from my ex-husband & his parents! The... More

My friend and I stayed at Wellington for 3 nights and had a wonderful time! First of all, the location couldn't be better. As you exit Waterloo station you come across Wellington just in front of you! You can easily get to many places on foot as well, so it's probably one of the best locations we've found so far... More

I have just returned from a overnight stay at this hotel and I have to say - WOW! The hotel is fantastic, steeped in history (which I love!) and when I arrived approx 30 mins before official check-in, the staff were so incredibly helpful. A Scottish gentleman at the bar spoke to the member of staff dealing with my booking... More

I have just stayed here overnight on a theatre and sightseeing stay. We received a warm welcome and our cases were carried to our room (up to the third floor in the heat wave, much appreciated!)

Perhaps popping in at 16.00 on a Friday afternoon is not ideal, quite busy, a good number were in having completed their work shift for the day. Service was good, ordered a pint of Fullers LP, a bit too warm for my liking but ok. All tables in use, its a pretty large pub, three TV screens, one showing the... More
