My Dad and I traveled from Canada to London for his 70th Birthday. My Dad has never been to London and I knew he would feel uneasy being away from home, so when I read the reviews about the Mandalay, I thought it would be the perfect place for us to stay. Just as I thought, Dwight and his family... More

I have been to this hotel 3 times and plan another stay for next year. Mandalay Picton House is a small family-run hotel, which is always clean with fresh and hygienic rooms. The breakfast is served in a comfortable room and it is a wonderful start in the day. Even for people with allergy against special type of foods it... More

We chose to stay at Mandalay Picton House because it was one of very few budget options in central London and at a great location. From the very first email from one of the owners, Gary, we could tell that we were going to meet wonderfully kind and considerate hosts, and we weren't disappointed. Both brothers are extremely talkative and... More

I`ve chosen this hotel on the basis of reviews found here and I must say that it was really a good choice. Good location, very clean room, good breakfast (eggs, beans, muschrooms, cereals, toasts, bananas,...) and above all very friendly owners. Both brothers were really nice - we felt like at home and we were sad when we were leaving.... More
