Stayed here briefly and that's all one should do. Run down and slightly depressing room, the telly worked and so did the loo. Use everything with your fingers crossed. Breakfast was ok and the staff that we encountered tried. Cannot really say anything more helpful, oh, Hampton Court being next door is a redeeming feature and also, so I believe,... More

It was already terrible to find out that the hotel was closed for bankrupcy with all windows sealed. Not only we had to find two rooms for two days in a more expensive hotel but now we found we have been debited the full amount and there is nobody helping so far after 1 week from the complain. never again...

We stayed at the Liongate Hotel for just one night, we were going to a black tie party in Hampton court, and this hotel strangely still had rooms available and was just a few hundred yards to stagger back to in the early hours. I must say that we did only pay £60 for our room, so we were not... More

Where do I start. A weekend in the capital for a family reunion. Picked my 'family' room which I've got to say looked fab in the pictures on the website I booked on. On arriving I was shown to the room which immediately struck me as poor and very small with the wallpaper peeling off. 2 of the tiniest double... More

To be fair, the staff was very helpful and pleasant. However, the hotel itself needs serious renovation work. I think the management do not really care about this hotel. - Dirty rooms - stains on bed covers - bad sound insulation My advice, avoid this hotel at all cost. For£90 / night, it is not worth it.

We needed a hotel we could access easily from our son's house, arriving late at night, and we didn't want to spend a fortune. The rate available was suspiciously low for this area, and we looked with foreboding at the reviews on Trip Advisor, but booked anyway (Kingston not being famous for its excellent hotels). What was all the fuss... More

When I arrived at I hotel I initially thought it was a derelict building, not much improved inside. We had room 3, could have been quite a nice room but it is in serious need of refurbishment, and basic maintainence. It was also so hot- ?why - a fan was provided but the heat made it impossible to sleep, couldn't... More

To anyone who is thinking of booking this hotel my advice to them is dont, the rooms are absolutely filthy and severely downtrodden, our recent trip to this stunningly beautiful area of london was ruined by this dosshouse.

The first room was dingy, dirty and smelly. The old TV had a digital box thing sellotaped to the top of it and the trouser press had bear wires sticking out of the housing. Now on to the bed! My 6 month pregnant wife sat on the bed to change her shoes and got stabbed in the leg by a... More
