We stayed at the Rathbone for 4 nights on a recent London visit and really enjoyed it. We arrived too early to check in to our room, but the Front Desk staff (friendly and helpful throughout our stay) quickly offered to hold our luggage while we headed out for a bit. The location is excellent for easy walking to the... More

When I say "reasonable", I mean "reasonable FOR CENTRAL LONDON" but this is a nice, friendly hotel with well-appointed and nicely decorated rooms. Everything is always clean and tidy, room service is punctual and tasty etc. and I've never had any real complaints after staying 10-12 times.

There were 15 of us staying here for one night during a weekend of fun in London. Upon our arrival staff were happy to let some of us into our rooms early as they were already made up. Those whose rooms weren't quite ready could leave their luggage securely at the hotel. Staff were friendly and nothing was too much... More

Sept 2010 ....We went to London to celebrate our 10th Wedding anniversary, my hubby booked the hotel and we went to see a show, we had a lovely time, it was very central to where we wanted to be, and the check in service was good, room clean and staff friendly

Stayed here for 1 night on business. First impressions, tourists will love it. It's a little old school for my tastes but impeccably clean and well appointed. Staff were truly outstanding very professional and helpful. Only ate breakfast at the hotel but plenty of choice and couldn't fault the service or experience. The only negative comment I would add is... More

Just stayed for one night whilst seeing a show. From the moment we walked in and were welcomed at reception the staff and service were first rate.

This was a fantastic location for our weekend break - Oxford Street and the theatre just around the corner. Very comfortable room with everything we needed. Breakfast with great, a choice of cooked or continental which set us up for the day. The staff were helpful and polite. We will stay here again.

Our experience of the Rathbone couldn't have been better. Very friendly, and helpful staff throughout the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable although a little noisy early morning from the pub opposite due to their empty bottles being taken away.
