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.

We just popped in for a drink on a hot day. The staff were friendly and prices reasonable. There was a good buzz / atmosphere about the place, even after the football had finished. It is just situated just across the road from the entrance to Waterloo railway/tube station. Worth a visit.

Spent 2 nights here after long flight from Australia and before a UK road trip. Room was spotless (special mention of housekeeping excellence) and bed extremely comfortable. Unlike some other reviews, we didn't find room noisy at all. Even though rooms are smallish, they are very well appointed. Yes there are some stairs to contend with, but we were 2... More
