Stayed here last weekend. Great location. Euston station, The British Museum and Covent Garden were all within walking distance (or a short tube journey if you prefer). We arrived a little early but thought we would see if the room was ready, and it was. We were told we had a complimentary room upgrade and it was a fabulous spacious... More

Stayed Aug 2014, we received a very professional and polite welcome upon arrival, the room was nicely appointed and very clean. We had breakfast included in the booking which was of a good quality and although only the cold breakfast was included, for me the additional 5 GPB per day for the cooked one was worth it. The hotel is... More

a great hotel for the basics: the room was fine and the shower was good as well but there was no air conditioning in the room and the room was very hot (much hotter than it was outside!). The breakfast was very expensive so we skipped that. However, the staff were nice and helpful, and the location is fantastic: minutes... More

Recently stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. The executive room was lovely and the bed comfortable,but oh so expensive. The room was so hot, no air conditioning and as it is classed as a 4star hotel I would have thought something would be done about this, even if was just putting fans in the rooms as we knew other...

Lovely small hotel in a brilliant location. Easy walking distance to just about everywhere especially Soho and Covent Garden. The Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Didn't have the breakfast but Sainsburys was just around the corner and plenty of cafes nearby. Air conditioning would have been nice as it was very warm... More

Stayed at this hotel when the temperature outside was 28 degrees. No air con in the room and as it was a basement room the windows were sealed....result a hot room and not a comfortable nights sleep. However, the staff were lovely, the room nice and the food very good, so just avoid in a heat wave!

We arrived very early in the morning to London Heathrow on a Monday morning. We stopped at the tourist desk at the airport to ask some questions. Originally we had been booked into an Inn in Hampstead. The man at the desk was able to find us a room at the Clarendon for close to equivalent price and it was... More

Booked the garden room suite here, great hotel, really good for tube access straight into all central London. Clean, comfy and heart buffet breakfast. Nice to walk into local village for dinner and a beer, Definitely recommend, but never looked at the standard rooms.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay - it's quite rare to find hotels with nice gardens in central London, so its good that you were able to enjoy the garden during this lovely sunny weather. More

We only booked for 1 night to attend wedding on HMS President, we arrived just after noon even though check in is from 3. We needed a room to change into from travel clothes to wedding attire. This posed no problems and we were quickly shown a room to use. All the staff are very polite, professional and friendly. Breakfast... More

On arrival, upgraded to a large room overlooking a garden courtyard, which was a bonus. Comfortable room, although TV offering is a little mixed (SKY channels are welcome, but other channels a bit limited and unreliable in quality). Breakfast is pleasant, good range of things to choose from. All in all, would use again. Didn't use it, but looks like... More
