Stayed for a few nights while in the area on business. Very handy being opposite the train station. Nice staff. Good price for London. The pub downstairs has good food & beer but it is very "London Gastro-Pub". Nice room and en suite. Unfortunately the bed was very hard. The big disappointment was on Shrove Tuesday, they took pancakes off... More

Can't beat the value. Undr 100 pounds per night with breakfast. Nice, albeit, smallish room, comfy bed, nicely appointed bathroom. BUT beware of the 'coffee maker" which is an old fashioned press with slimy coffee-like liquid (no creamer provided either). Yuck! So, best to order coffee with breakfast or skip altogether. Nice residential location close to the Thames (nice walk),... More

My now wife and I held our wedding reception upstairs in the Alma in October 2013. It was a lovely day. We had over 50 guests attend with some staying the night. The food was fantastic - would suggest you ask for the Strawberry sponge cake for dessert. The service was brilliant. Ann & Colin did a fantastic job on... More

Stayed for the weekend recently - and the service, rooms and food were first rate. Location was excellent, just outside the train station at wandsworth town and there was no noise at all. Perfect weekend.

This was a spur of the moment idea and we loved every minute of it. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very special and spoiled. The Manager, Sean, was first rate and could not have done more to make us want to repeat the whole experience. Our bed was one of the most comfortable... More

The Alma Hotel is a very comfortable and friendly small hotel. The room was large, comfortable and very clean, and the staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. Although this Hotel is attached to a pub, we did not hear a thing in our first floor room on a Friday night. The train station connects to the tube system to... More

This boutique hotel is convenient for Wandsworth train station, it is just across the road. Our room was very spacious with a walk in shower. The staff were very pleasant, efficient and friendly. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very nice and pretty busy. We also had breakfast during our stay and there was a very good choice.... More

This Victorian boutique hotel in a courtyard environment opposite Wandsworth Town Station has great atmosphere and comfortable, well-appointed rooms. Ours had a walk-in shower and a brilliantly comfortable bed. The bar and restaurant retaini much of the hotel's origianl character. The bar, with its oblong central counter, pillars and panelling is still a Victorian/Edwardian saloon. The staff were extremely friendly... More

We decided to have our staff Christmas meal at The Alma. We had been to The Alma a few years ago and it was nice but this time it was excellent! The staff were fantastic, from the initial booking of our table to the actual evening itself. On behalf of our group of 16 I would like to thank Sean... More
