The Highbury Centre is the perfect place for ministry workers and their families to take a break and enjoy a comfortable room, hearty breakfast and kind people only a short walk to the London Underground. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My wife and me, our 10-month old baby, and my in laws stayed here for 5 days in May and we'd come again. We used Highbury Centre as a home base for our London sightseeing and really enjoyed the short walk through the park to and from the Highbury/Islington tube stop each day. The Centre is clean, free daily breakfast... More

Enjoyed my visit - friendly receptionist, room basic but clean and comfortable, very nice breakfast. Although it has a Christian connection, non-believers are welcome, and they don't try to convert you over breakfast! It's a little bit of a trek to the Tube, but it's not too bad.

Easy to get to by bus or tube (Highbury and Islington and then a short ten minute walk), this is a great value place to stay. Very peaceful and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was simple but relaxed. Good to know your money is going to a positive venture, rather than the usual profit making hotels.

We use The Highbury Centre once a year for school admission appeal hearings and would thoroughly recommend their meeting rooms for those on a budget. We usually plumb for the inclusive rate which includes lunch, teas, coffees which is under £30 per person including room hire and limited parking. The staff are always very friendly and the food, although simple,... More

If you know this is not a fancy place, you can be very happy at this simple place. I loved the included breakfasts simple, but substantial and a real cost saver. We shared a clean bathroom down the hall. It hardly ever seemed occupied so no bother. The four we got in the room saved us so much money that... More

This is a great place to stay in a lovely, quiet tree lined street. The accommodation is very clean and the staff at reception are really helpful. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone staying in London on a budget, and who also doesn't mind having to travel into Central London.

Situated in a very quiet area just 5 mins on tube from central London. We have 3 children so often difficult to find suitable hotel rooms. Family room was spacious and slept all 5 of us very comfortably. Able to park car outside for free for whole trip. Centre was very clean and staff friendly. We would definitely visit again.... More

Great place to stay if you don't mind being a short bus ride from the centre of London. Basic but clean rooms, at a great price for this area. A Christian-run charity that serves its purpose really well.

I have been using the Highbury Centre for nearly five years, sometimes staying for up to ten days. I appreciate it for its location, friendly staff and very fair pricing. A lot of upgrading was achieved lately and prices have increased but it is still my favourite place, my almost-home in London. Love the communal breakfast tables facilitating early morning... More
