I stayed one night at the Alma and I wished I was staying longer! The beds were incredibly comfortable (the Queen apparently has the same make of bed!). The rooms were spacious and clean, with a Nespresso coffee machine, good selection of tea bags and biscuits. The bathroom was fab, the shower was brilliant and the towels were exceptionally white...

I've stayed at the Alma quite a few times now and every time is fantastic. From the comfortable, well equipped rooms with huge beds to the amazing restaurant food I really cannot find fault in the hotel. The staff are also extremely helpful having kept the restaurant open later for me a couple of times now when arriving late. Breakfast... More

We stayed here for one night as a birthday treat from my hubby. Everything about the place is lovely - our room number 23 was very spacious , spotlessly clean and very quiet. Breakfast was delicious - would highly recommend

We stayed at the Alma for six days and we absolutely loved it! The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The hotel is located directly across the street from Wandsworth Town station and the trains to central London (Victoria and Waterloo) arrive every few minutes. Our room was very clean, spacious and the bathroom was great. The last night we've... More

We stayed here for one night. The hotel is separate from the busy pub. The rooms are very comfortable and our room - No. 19 had a good sized bathroom (something you don't always get in 5 star hotels!) The staff were delightful. I had requested a quiet room and this certainly fitted the bill. Everything you needed was there... More

I was booked into the Alma Hotel by a client in the local area - they often book this hotel for their frequent guests that come over from Germany who are not happy if the Alma is fully booked! I completely understand why!! First of all, if pubs are not your thing when you stay away then do not be... More

We had our wedding reception at The Alma and it was such incredible value for money and such a perfect day. The events planner, Ciara, was so fantastic and made sure the whole lead up and day was seamless and exactly as we'd hoped! We had eaten at the restaurant several times before and the food for our wedding breakfast... More

Stayed at The Alma for 9 nights in December at the recommendation of a friend based in London. Lovely hotel beautifully renovated - rooms of a very high standard and quiet. Only had breakfast in the restaurant but very good - seemed busy for dinner every night. Very close to all transport links - only 100m walk to Wandsworth Town... More
