It was a shame the building was tentacled with scaffolding and building works where on- going. The receptionists were very friendly as were the bar staff. The room was clean and correct. The traffic outside is noisy though. There is a great atmosphere in the popular bar but there were 2 things I much disliked: to access the toilets from... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Mad Hatter hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is located about a 10 min walk from the Waterloo Station. Easy to find, just straight down the road. We had a late check in, which wasnt a problem (but I did let them know beforehand, just in case). You'd just ring the door bell... More

There re several less than complimentary reviews about this place, and after staying there for a week I can see why. It's a great place, let's get that one out of the way first. It's clean, the staff are friendly and it's in a good location. My bed was comfortable, the room was a good size, it was warm, the... More

I have stayed here a few times over the past 2 or 3 years. A really good value for the area. Its a classic London hotel. Its located right on the south side of the bridge so an easy walk across and into central london. The rooms are small but that is Europe. Very old but everything always in good... More

New Years Day in Southwark. All the pubs we knew were shut. Then we found the Mad Hatters bar on the junction of Stamford Street and Blackfriars Bridge Road. A lovely welcome from the staff and a nice place to catch up with friends. We didn't eat but the plates going past looked and smelled livery. A great find in... More

The Mad Hatter is a lovely hotel situated across the Blackfriars bridge near the Underground. The hotel is not far from most of the major attractions and it is possible to walk. We had a room located on the second floor and there was a lift which was helpful with all of our luggage. The room itself was pretty spacious... More

Stayed here for the second time on a business trip, the room and hotel service were very good, but, the breakfast "process" needs to be sorted out. It takes far too long taking individual orders and serving everything, including milk and toast, for each individual person, mainly only by one member of staff, which results in a long wait. If...

Booked this hotel back in April for a Christmas weekend. Wasn't sure if staying above a busy London pub would be relaxing, but you'd never know. It was very quiet. The rooms were clean and spacious, bed was v comfortable and made daily by maid. Coffee and tea facilities were great, fresh coffee and shortbread biscuits! Amazing! Hotel is located... More

It is hard to find a single positive thing to put in this review. The building directly fronts onto an extremely busy main street leading to Blackfriars bridge which is one of the main routes across the river Thames. It is also currently surrounded by major construction of new skyscrapers. Inserted frames in the windows with extra glazing do almost... More

I would like to assure you that, though the construction in the area is beyond our control, we are taking every possible measure to protect our guests from the noise. In addition most of our visitors enjoy the traditional feeling and lively atmosphere of our pub and have... More
