I stopped for one night as it's in a convenient location, however wish I'd stopped in the Premier Inn around the corner as the night went on. The room was small, but adequate for what needed as just a stop over. On going outside there were men dressed in rubber and leather gear, some as dogs and other animals with... More

There is no mention of the basement bar in our literature because it's a separate venue in it's own right, with it's own totally separate entrance and is ran by other people. The B&B is three floor up for goodness sake. Did any of these people dressed in leather approach you or even take the slightest interest in you? No!... More

I stayed in the single room with shared bathroom. The size of the room was really tiny. It is also quite noisy, it was a Monday night and there was Karaoke in the bar downstairs, so you could hear it all. Until midnight. So I think it's ok if you stay in London and go back to your hotel after... More

Central station is one of the iconic gay pubs. As such if that sort of thing upsets you, you won't enjoy checking in. Avoid doing it when there's an act on stage as the bat gets very busy. The hotel itself is very different. I stayed twice. You have to climb up quite a steep set of stairs, with a... More

My best friend and I stayed here on a Saturday evening as we were attending a function nearby. The hotel is attached to Central Station Gay pub. We went into the pub to register and then we were taken up to our room. The staff were very professional and the room was of a nice size, very clean and well... More

We booked for two nights based on decent reviews and online photos. What we found on arrival was dirty and shabby, and a casual attitude by staff. We were so desperate to get out that it was worth losing one night's rate for late cancellation - first time I have done that in my life.

Ah yes. I remember you, you arrived made some homophobic remarks along with a choice number of expletives and declared you weren't staying. How then would you know what the rooms are like as you didn't even see them. It was with great relief to us that you about turned and left. Nothing more to say really. More

Staff soon get to know you after a few stays and always welcome you. This place is super friendly, clean, good value and the condition of the place is upgrading all the time. Even the bar and inescapable ambient Central London noise seems to be less than it used to be. Unintrusive if you want privacy, and great fun if... More

My daughter and I made a last minute hotel search through booking.com whilst on the train to London. We wanted to stay close to St. Pancras but not prepared to pay a fortune. It was also a last minute reservation hence to find a hotel 250 yards from the station at 90£ per night was superb. We got in after... More

First of all this is a B&B, and above a busy pub. That said whilst it was not countryside quiet, it is central London, so as soon as the music stopped, other city noise was still there. The rooms where clean and secure, the bathroom as well, the main public areas are being refurbished, but even that clutter was kept... More

Good quality pub grub and although i am not gay made to feel very welcome in this gay friendly place. Would visit again if we go back to the same area. Good atmosphere with good choice of alcoholic drinks.

had a very enjoyable stay here recently. The room was very tiny and up many stairs, but was clean and comfortable. I was looking forward to trying their food but the tables were all full and I was too hungry to wait around. The evenings entertainment was karaoke. Such a great, diverse group there was there. All so very talented.... More
