Stayed 4 nites while in London and only a short walk from metro stop with easy access to the city. Rooms were fair size with free Wi-Fi that worked well and staff very helpful and friendly. Would stay here again when in London.

Checking into the hotel went well. It is a short walk from a metro stop and easy to find. The problems began when I came back in the evening. One of the windows was broken and stuck open. Tried calling the desk and the emergency number and no response. Spent the night in a cold room with very loud traffic... More

Stayed here for a gig at O2 Brixton. Easy to find, immaculately clean room & despite being on main road no traffic noise at all. Price ok for London. Access to Clapham South tube station is easy, 2 minute walk away along with a few places for breakfast as not included. Safe area & would stay again. Didn't use car... More

We stayed here last year for one night and this weekend for two nights and would highly recommend this hotel. The staff are very helpful and the room was clean and well equipped. It's in a convenient location.

The situation of the hotel was perfect, just a short distance to Clapham Common tube station, and a short distance to the Common. The interior was homely however, it was well equipped with all the necessities and served it's... More

Had a trouble free one night stay here for SW4 festival. A 2 minute walk from Clapham South station and a stones throw from the Common, booked late and still got a reasonable price (for London) so we were quite content with what we got. Got the feeling that it was a family/couple run sort of place as the staff... More

I stayed here for an event on Clapham Common, and you pretty much fall out of bed onto the common. It is a great location as the stumble back in the evening was so short. The room was small but adequately sized, and was most of all very clean. There was a fridge in the room and the usual tea... More

Had a pleasant one night stay whilst flat hunting with fiancee. The staff were very friendly and helpful and were there if we needed them. Room was comfortable and quiet. Location is superb for transport as well as getting out for a meal.
