4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

+ The location, the friendly staff, amazing breakfast (full english)

A bit small rooms

Went with two friends, celebrating one of my friends 30th birthday. This hotel was very close to the underground which made it an ideal startingpoint for our London adventure.

My wife and I spent the night here after arriving at Heathrow at 9:00 PM and having a 9:00 AM train out of King's Cross the next morning. I spent an inordinate amount of time on the internet looking at hotels close to the train station and in the end I just threw a dart at the board and picked the Jesmond. Fortunately I examined the reservation a couple days before we left and realized I had booked a room that shared a bathroom. Not good for seniors. They gladly changed it and luckily I was able to get a room with a bathroom at a reasonable rate. Rooms are clean but dated. I'd probably look around for something more modern and not worry about being so close to make the station

We stayed at the Jesmond Dene Hotel July 28-August 4 and were very pleased. Our room (room 21) had air conditioning and an en suite bathroom. Although small, our room and bathroom were very clean and perfect for what we needed. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Breakfast was very good and is served from 7:30-9:00 and although they do ask that you call down just before breakfast to let them know when you'd like to eat, we were always told we could come down right away. Very close to the tube.... literally about 2 minutes away.

Room Tip: Our room (room 21) was up two flights of stairs. Someone who is elderly or with difficulty walking...

Booked this hotel at short notice and honestly didn't pick up until booked, that the bathrooms were not connected to the room. Reservation states bathroom outside room. Reality, bathroom 3 or 4 flights of stairs, up or down. Only 2 showers for 14 rooms. The night I stayed was quite hot and the room had no air conditioning. Only option was to have the window open for limited air flow. Noise from street traffic, cars, delivery vans, pedestrians went on late into night. Sirens from main road just down the street were every few minutes until well after midnight. Eventually closed window and slept on top of bed sheets. Early morning delivery 5.15am meant any chance of a sleep was short lived. Internal noise of other guests arriving and leaving also a distraction. Breakfast served between 7.30 and 9.00am. Needed t book a time the night before. No options on what you get, other than choice of tea or coffee. Close to Train stations which is reason booked, but more like a B&B than a hotel. Over priced for what you get. 4% credit card charge bit over the top, on a booking made via Internet.

I recently attended London on business. There was a mix up with the booking but the manager sorted it out. This made my journey and stay stress free. I was worried about parking and they sorted it out no problem again removing some of the worry. The manager was friendly polite and so were all the staff. The breakfast was just right and very tasty. I would stop at this hotel again no probs. Oh and the shower was superb.

We stayed 1 week at Jesmond Dene Hotel and we loved it. It was in a great location, one block from King's Cross(Platform 9 3/4 for HP fans!). Easy access to the London Underground and British rail system. Good English breakfast daily and Darren the manager helped arrange transport from and to Heathrow airport. We stayed in the family room with air conditioning with private bath which was on the third floor(a bit of a climb at the end of long days but not bad). Everyone was very nice! Would most definitely recommend staying here.

Really pleased with this hotel which was close to the international rail line and close to many London sights.

Unfortunately we had the top floor 'family room', which after climbing what seemed like 100 steps each day, was not ideal for my 75 yo parents.

Other than that, it was a perfect hotel for our stay, celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary which included a trip to Paris, hence the need to stay close to St Pancras.
