We booked two rooms,after coming from the Station. It is convenient and the rooms and bathrooms were spotless. The room however was hit and noisy both from the traffic and someone in the next room snoring. I could hear every gasp of breath and the full throttle snore. It had a feel of a sixties boarding school. However it was... More

I had read some reviews regarding the Swinton Hotel and to be fair was a bit nervous as they weren't great. However I took tips and asked for a garden facing room as I read it could be quite noisy having a room facing the street side, I emailed the hotel at 21:30 the night before I was due to... More

Forgive me for assuming that a hotel offering cots and advertising that children were welcome would actually be SUITABLE for children! Far from it: steps up to the front door, claustrophobically narrow corridors that I couldn't get the (normal-sized) pram along, a lift so tiny that I nearly had to send the baby up on her own in the pram,...

I stayed at the Swinton for 3nights and I appreciated the essenciality of the room, its cleanliness, the small garden and the perfect location. If you have heavy luggages is advisable to ask for a high floor as the rooms in the basement can be reached only by stairs.

Swinton Hotel, in comparison to other London hotels, is a bargain. The stock photos on the website are a bit deceiving, but lower your expectations and Swinton Hotel offers a decent place for a night's sleep (though not much else). Rooms are basic but clean and staff are helpful. I had a street-facing room and it was incredibly loud -... More
