Some people on this website really do not understand budget!! I really enjoyed my stay and the amount of people I know that go back to this hotel speaks for itself. I have always found the staff polite and helpful. I know they have several European employees who are direct in there manner, but I have ever found them to... More

The hotel looks like it has not been touched since 1980. As soon as we walked in we thought oh my god, but it was late so we went with it. We were greeted by a pleasant man in a Spongebob T-shirt and shown to our room which was quite awful. The best that can be said is that it... More

If you think you are going to get more from a bed & breakfast hotel - you think right. The central location of the hotel is the more you would want. Walking distance from Debanhams, Nandos, Tescos of the World, The Harrow Town Center, St Anns and At Georges., so practically you can shop, eat, come back walking - drop... More

This hotel does not advertise itself as a 5 star hotel. Yes it is dated but it is clean and friendly and in a great location right in the centre of Harrow and a few minutes walk from the tube station. Had booked 2 single rooms for £61 each inc breakfast, bargain! The locks on the doors were dodgy and... More

Incredibly dated rooms desparate for update. The room was clean but very old and broken furnirures.There was a hole in bathroom door. The bulb from side lamp was missing. The wall is so thin u could hear a whole conversation next door. The staff wasn't welcoming either. There are much better B&B at same price in Harrow.

My first impression of London was from Kempsford. Booking was done online via email. Check-in and checkout were both hassle-free even though I had to reduce my stay and check-out at short notice. The owner and the staff were extremely friendly and patient. Rooms were kept clean. Breakfast was good. I could memorize the menu, so a little change in... More

Having stayed, some five years ago, at this hotel for a period of three months, when I needed accommmodation in the area, I booked a week expecting a similar experience. What a disappointment! On arrival I found the large Car Park at the rear of the hotel closed, but was lucky to find a parking space on the front. I... More

We had originally booked a Best Western hotel down the road as accommodation during our night out at the Take That gig in Wembley. After being transferred from the local overbooked Best Western hotel, we ended up in Kempsford House Hotel. On the first look, we automatically thought 'dated!!' but the family running it, were lovely people - friendly, dishing... More
