It was a nice hotel staff were helpfull without being too 'in your face' it's close to the main bus routes if you want to use the busses which we did! The room was comfortable and breakfast was nice with eggs cooked to order if you weren't keen on the scrambled egg on the buffet. It even had a couple of indian dishes for breakfast I think spiced potato was available one morning.

Wow! What an amazing stay we had! We stayed here for a week and the service never faltered. The staff were so knowledgeable and friendly, which really made our stay amazing. As well as having a few restaurants and bars attached this hotel had it all. As we were so far from home it was so great to be able to use their free internet service and computers so we could keep our families up to date. I cannot wait to go back to London and will definitely stay here again.

It's like a newly built hotel compared to its previous state. I have an executive studio which has a great separate sitting and work area from the bedroom. Great sized bathroom, nicely appointed. I'm looking forward to breakfast. Dinner in Bistro 51 is very nice, attentive staff, food arrives in good time and nicely spiced.

My second stay here was just a nice as the first. This hotel is in such a perfect location for seeing London. The room is so comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, everyone was so helpful. I could not ask for more from a hotel.

Hotel location is excellent! Meals were terrific!Room was spotless! But more importantly all the staff we met during our stay were extremely helpful. Nothing was too hard for them! They looked after us so well, we really felt like family! Definitely recommend St. James' Court to all.
