Arrived a little early but were shown to our table straight away, the Maitre d' was extremely friendly and very helpful, even helping decide what to order, We both ordered the recommendations and the lived up to expectation. All the staff were helpful jovial and welcoming. We will definitely go there again when in Wandsworth Town - Well Done Alma

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Alma Hotel. I loved being around the suburbs rather than being in the city. You can catch the bus to the city centre or you can walk. It's not a very long walk to all the tourist sites and it's great to go across the Thames River. The quality of the rooms were... More

I have eaten here 3 times and every single time I've been totally impressed. Roast dinners, CHICKEN POT PIE (yum!), and the desserts are all amazing pub food. Great atmosphere in the restaurant and the bar is pretty cool too. I can't wait to go back to London so I can eat here again!

We loved the decorations in the rooms, the small private garden, the functional bathrooms, the delicious inclusive breakfast, the energetic pub, the convenient restaurant!!! We very much appreciated the early morning room service they prepared for us before our morning tour!! Even the airport transfer they arranged for us was reasonably priced and so reliable!! Only warning is that it... More

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
