Pretty nice room. No Wi-Fi and internet connection did not work for a day during our stay. Air conditioning was inconsistent, at best. Hotel advertised fans upon request in their welcome book, but we were informed that they did not have any when we requested one. TV was not easy to work. Felt like we went back and forth with...

On entering the room, there was a damp smell and on further exploration, I discovered a rotten window, stained curtains and carpet, a hair in the bed under the top sheet and the bedside lamp didn't work. I asked to be moved to a different room which was duly arranged by embarrassed staff ... However this room was at the... More

I agree that the rooms and bathroom are extremely small (at least ours was), but this is London so I expected that. It was, however, clean and the bed was comfortable. The location is a short walk from the Earls Court tube which is a handy halfway spot between Heathrow and most of the tourist sights further east. This was... More

Spent two nights here whilst visiting Wimbledon, late June. After reading generally poor reviews on Tripadvisor, we were so pleased with our choice. The Executive room was comfortable, clean, pretty good value for money with a inclusive breakfast and the staff were friendly and gave wonderful service. Gluten-free requirements were dealt with fine in the restaurant where a generous help... More

I traveled to England and stayed at this beautiful Hotel from 6/11-6/19/14 and was treated with the upmost professionalism by the entire staff. Everyone welcomed me with kindness and beautiful smiles. I was traveling alone for the first time, and the staff made me feel at home, which eased my anxiety tremendously! I cannot say enough about the people working... More

I felt a bit conned that this hotel room was billed as £250 full price. Who would have paid that, I don't know. It was tiny - as I see now other reviewers have commented on this too. The bathroom door wouldn't open fully. Corridors were narrow and felt rather claustrophobic. Staff were very polite and helpful. Absolutely nothing negative... More
