Very friendly and helpful service. Environmental pleasant and quiet, good location, convenient to move around in many places. Rooms tasteful Londoners, a great atmosphere. Breakfast plentiful and special diet were taken into account as well. A lot of the staff there and the service is fast. A clean and comfortable hotel.

I honestly have nothing bad to say about this hotel everything about my experience here was amazing. I recently stayed for 4 nights and the staff was more than helpful and the room was clean, as well as the bathrooms. The location is excellent, it is easy walking distance to a lot of the tourist attractions or just a 5... More

I stayed at the Ridgemount for three nights and enjoyed it a lot! The owners and staff are extraordinarily kind and helpful. I had a single room at the top floor, facing the garden – it was small and impeccably clean, and so was the ensuite bathroom. As everybody else mentioned, the location of the hotel is great. It is...

This hotel is located near the British Museum, Dicken's house, and other Bloomsbury attractions which made it a fun neighborhood to walk around. It's was full of guests, but bathrooms were always clean and available and the proprietors were very helpful and friendly. Easy transportation via train, bus,or tube. The breakfast was great and served quickly. There is no lift... More

'Excellent value' is the most fitting description of this guesthouse. It is so conveniently located, with excellent transport links, be it the train or tube stations. And you can walk to the centre of London easily The hotel is owned by a Welsh family, and for me this is lovely as it provides a home-from-home atmosphere. They are so welcoming... More

I found this hotel via Tripadvisor and chose it based on the great reviews and the certificate of excellence it had received in 2013, it wasn't a disappointment at all. Apart from being very central and having bus stops at the each end of the block it was not at all hard do find. The staff was very friendly and... More

I found this hotel through Trip Advisor reviews and we are very pleased that we stayed there. The location is very convenient to walking, grabbing a bus, and has several Tube stops within a 10 minute walk. Short walk to the British Museum which is a real treasure. Many restaurants also within walking distance. The hotel itself is not big... More

This is not a new or fancy place. It is a reasonable price for London, in a terrific convenient location run by a very nice family. The beds were small, the room was small, but had everything we needed for our one night stay. From my initial inquiry, to check-in, helping with our queries about getting tickets to Charlie &...

I came across the Ridgemount whilst attempting to find a hotel that would be able to accommodate me on short notice for an interview at UCL. First and foremost, the communication I had with the hotel before I had even arrived was by far the most helpful and informative out of any hotel I've stayed at in the past. From... More

I originally found the Ridgemount on Trip Advisor two years ago when my daughter, then a student, needed to find somewhere inexpensive and preferably central to stay while she had a week's work experience in London. The positive comments from so many reviewers suggested that this would be a good choice for her and that indeed was what it turned... More
