My daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights when we traveled to London. It was our first trip to London and selecting a hotel was a difficult process as we were unfamiliar with the city and unsure as what would be an ideal location. It turns out we could not have chosen better! The location was fantastic, the staff... More

We spent two weeks at the Jesmond Hotel and felt we could not have chosen better. The location was close to several tube stations which made our day tripping a lot easier as we went to the station that took us directly to the correct tube line we needed. We were surprised that it was so quiet as we left... More

We initially chose the Jesmond because the hotels we usually stayed at when my husband teaches at the University of London were filled and it was close by, but we're glad we did! Mniur room was ensuite on the 3rd floor walk-up, but more room than we expected and clean as was the bathroom. Not especially plush, but workable. Bed... More

This hotel is an easy 10 minute walk from Covent Garden, with a bus stop across the road and a tube station just behind. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom. The room was much bigger than I had expected, having read several other reviews! It faced on to the main road but the good double glazing meant... More

Our stay at the Jesmond Hotel exceeded our expectations. We found Mrs. Beynon to be extremely helpful and engaging--we very much enjoyed talking with her. We later met Jason and then Glyn, and found continued good cheer and helpfulness. Our room wasn't elegant, but it was clean, larger than we had expected, and had a lot of flat spaces for... More

Hearing how rooms are tiny in London I was very concerned about what type or room my niece and I would have to share. The room was actually spacious (room 10). It had a double bed and a twin bed with plenty of room to move around. The bathroom was small but clean and manageable. The young man at the... More

The hotel is close to Euston Station and the British Museum. Two blocks to Goodge Street Tube. It's an 18th century building. We had a very small two single bed room with shared bath for about 85GBP. There is a sink in the room, TV, fan, not much else, very little room even for suitcases. Room was clean. One towel... More

Small hotel in good location with friendly staff. Bedrooms clean and comfortable but spartan. Nice small garden at the back, free internet, large TV in eating area and newspapers available. However, breakfast was poor. Is this the only hotel in London which won't do poached or boiled eggs? Not helped by carton orange juice masquerading as the real thing, packeted... More

We stayed 5 nights in a room overlooking the garden (which was a haven for some lovely birds), an oasis in a big city. Although small, the room was very clean and the bed comfortable. Glyn, and the rest of the staff, is so friendly and helpful. It's a real plus to have a hearty breakfast to start the day... More

We just stayed 4 nights on the 3rd floor, overlooking the garden and thought that it was a fabulous hotel with lots of history - ask Glyn the Manager, he has written a scholarly paper on the hotel, and knows its history inside out. Start the day with a nice freshly cooked to order English Breakfast, then you are only... More
