I stayed for one night and had a very pleasant time. You couldn't be closer to Waterloo or Waterloo East stations: perfectly placed for the Old Vic, the Globe and surrounding restaurants. The pub is always very popular and busy, busy and we really enjoy it there. The rooms are modern, very clean and pack a lot in with generous... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed for just one night, we went to see Charlie and The Chocolate Factory in Covent Garden. Hotel is prime location, opposite Waterloo Station, you literally walk straight up along the bridge and Covent Garden is right there! We also walked from London Victoria and walked past Westminster, over the bridge, walking past the Houses of... More

My family and I stayed at The Wellington Hotel in Waterloo in JAN 2015. I must admit I was a little thrown that the Reception Desk was located in the Pub Area but don’t judge a book by its cover! We are a military family who lives and travels abroad routinely. The Wellington Hotel is and has been the best... More

Loved our stay here. We stayed 3 nights in rooms over the pub & had large breakfast to order each morning in the pub. Great location, authentic and warm rooms, wonderful views, friendly service ...cramped, tiny staircases, rooms, and bathrooms that we enjoyed immensely. Walking, busses, tube & rail are EASY from here.

This a small hotel with a great atmosphere. The bar is lively and the food is excellent. The breakfast will set you up for the rest of the day. It is near Waterloo main line and tube stations. An easy 15 min walk across the Thames and into Covent Garden and theater land

I had a dinner at the OXO tower, 9 mins walk) and wanted a stop over, it was a choice of Days Inn or premier inn...but Wellington had a deal of £99 including breakfast. I was a bit nervous before booking as it seemed rather close to Waterloo station (across the road) re noise, but it was fine. The Wellington... More

Visited London for a show at the ExCel, but wanted to be closer to town for easy access to the West End. Turned out to be a great choice! Location could not have been better, just facing Waterloo/Jubilee Line entrance, also very easy to get buses and taxis from right out front of the hotel. Walking distance to Southbank Centre...
