Down in London for a one night stay, arriving into Kings Cross. Booked an Advanced half-board (dinner, bed & breakfast) for a good price, and requested quiet. Arrived late having been at a reception - Magna Carta at the BL - and feeling tired. No fuss check-in, given an upgrade (I think as it was a good room) and as... More

Spent 3 nights at the hotel with my elderly parents (1st time in London ever) and my son. The location is excellent, we walked from St Pancras (10-15 min), Russell Square underground Station is round the corner, we also walked to Trafalgar Square. The breakfast buffet was very good, they even had soya milk. The bar is quite cosy. The... More

We have stayed in this hotel a few times due to several reasons. It is within walking distance of Saint Pancras train station that we use when taking the chunnel to Paris, it's within easy walking distance of the British Museum, there are several pubs within a block or so of the hotel, restaurants nearby, within walking distance of the...

Hired a small meeting room at the Holiday Inn this week. Very well appointed 'Academy' foyer for all the meeting rooms. Our room was set up exactly as requested. There is constant light refreshments available - so break times are not an issue with staff interrupting presentations. Lunch is served in the restaurant which has an excellent choice and is...

We travel to London several times a year for the weekend, mainly to see a West End show and always shop around for the best value hotel.We booked through a holiday club of which we are members so did get a discounted rate. Had we been paying the full rate we probably would not have booked. I was quite shocked... More

We visited in mid June, a second visit this year. The room, a standard double, had been newly refurbished and was clean and quiet. It was rather small and next time we would upgrade to a superior one, as we had on a previous visit. We booked and paid ahead and the price was reasonable for London. It is close... More

I have stayed here before and liked it but this return trip was a big disappointment. Check in took 24 minutes ( I tend to look at my watch when I see a queue and too few reception staff) Room too small to swing a cat round, no bedside tables, bathroom small and door hard to close unless you are...

Hotel itself is typical Holiday Inn property, not a big wow factor but clean and friendly staff. The thing that does stand out about the property was the concierge, Gary. He went above and beyond his responsibilities to please us and also to please other guests (I would watch him talking to people). He is the type of concierge you... More

The hotel is located in an area with a few pubs and restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are small. toilets even smaller. Difficult to get into a standard room toilet. We had to pay an extra 20 gbp for an up grade to executive room which was decent in size. Free internet for IHG members. The policy of a... More
