This is the 2nd or 3rd time I have stayed at this hotel. It has the normal Holiday Inn Express with good levels of cleanliness. The reception staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the normal choice of hot & cold self-service but quite a small selection of cold items. Hot is the normal mass produced & cooked scrambled... More

Staff unbelievably helpful, so polite and welcoming. Good location for shopping but no pubs or bars within walking distance. Breakfast was very good very unusual to have bacon at an express but very welcomed. Parking is at the rear of the hotel

I have stayed 3 night in this beatifu holiday during the last week-end. Was really amazing stay full pleasure of the stay. I was warmly welcomed and recognised as member of IHG rewards. I got the room in the most silent area, daily newspaper, even the late check-out at 13:00. That all for being the member. Plus the perfect breakfest... More

I stayed a couple of nights on business in the hotel, and it was ideal for my purposes. The hotel is handy for the tube into London meaning it was ideal for where i needed to go without being too busy in the city centre.

I visit London often and always stay in Premier Inn and decided to on a change and booked into the Holiday Inn Express Swiss Cottage. Wished I'd stuck to Premier inn. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and I woke every hour trying to get myself comfy. I've never had this problem at premier inn and they have nice thick luxurious... More

A few friends and myself stayed the weekend just gone, as we were all in London to celebrate a friends birthday. The rooms were very clean, staff were very attentive, friendly and welcoming and breakfast was lovely. We would definitely recommend to friends needing somewhere to stay in London.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel as the price is reasonable for London and location is easy to get to coming down from the north (and outside the congestion zone) and close enough to our son who lives a short distance away. Check in was swift with the reception staff polite and pleasant. We asked... More

Stayed here during half-term week and could hardly notice it was until breakfast. Breakfast was a little more busy than expected but absolutely lovely with a wide range to choose from! Staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel did not feel a million miles away from Central London. Very easy to spot once leaving Finchley Road underground station.... More

Good, clean hotel with very friendly staff. We think they had mistakenly cancelled our booking but when we arrived the manager could not have been more helpful and found us a room immediately without stressing us out about the mistake. We paid the extra £20 for parking which was worth it as the car was kept in a locked garage... More
