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!) The room was spotless and comfortable with lots of toiletries and clean towels. The cooked breakfast was delicious and plentiful and all of the... More

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

I have stayed at the Wellington regularly for the past 18 months, as a business traveller. The rooms at the Wellington have been upgraded to a very superior standard, but there was nothing to complain about prior to the refurbishment. They still have the extra touches that you don't get in many other hotels, e.g. bottled water in the room... More

Me and my husband traveled to London for two nights, just to see the Monthy Python Show but this charming little 'bed and breakfast' of an hotel sort of stole the show. This was first time ever to London for my hubby. Location was excellent for tourists like us. Major sights such as South bank, Westminster with it's Big Ben,... More

Our review in March 2012 merits updating as the overnight accommodation facilities at this Waterloo pub-hotel have been totally refurbished (photos illustrate). All aspects relating to location obviously remain the same, as does the quality of service. Thankfully, Mark Leeds is still in charge, so the Wellington retains its charm and efficiency. The major changes work in favour of but... More

I stay at the Wellington Hotel at least once a year and have done for at least the last 10 years. Firstly there isn't a better situated hotel in London for immediate access to the great transport infrastructure London has to offer. You are literally 25 metres away from Waterloo Station. You are then a 10 - 15 minute tube... More

I booked this hotel for an overnight stay and it was perfect for our needs. The staff were friendly and the bar downstairs was busy and vibrant, we didn't have a chance to have a drink in there unfortunately but it looked like a true London pub. Proximity to Waterloo station and the Eye/South Bank was perfect. We met Mark... More
