4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We spent 6 days at the Sumner during January 2013. Booking the hotel on line was uneventful, and a room of the quality that we expected was provided. The rooms were comfortable, quiet and well appointed with comfortable beds and a bathroom with a good shower with good water pressure. The room was somewhat warm, but no more so than any other place in London during winter. The breakfasts were good with a wide range of food and helpful attentive staff. There is limited room service.
One of the best features of this hotel is the location: close to Marble Arch tube station and Oxford Street and 2 good coffee shops (use Beanhunter app), and many good restaurants of varying prices and a 10 minute walk to Paddington Station.

January I spent some nights at the hotel. It's a luxury, I felt very comfortable, the staff are lovely. The temperature in time, a good cup of tea or coffee always ready. Very good vibes from the hotel staff.

We stayed for 1 night with our friends on New Years Eve. We had lovely rooms that were very clean & very comfortable. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was good & very continental. The only thing that would have been nice would have been a complimentry tea tray in the room. We also didn't use the mini bar because of the high cost of the items. Would definitely stay again if we needed to as a great location in London. On checkout we were given a lovely diary for 2013. A really nice touch. Thanks again.

Very comfortable boutique style hotel near Marble Arch. Very convenient for Hyde Park and has lots of good restaurants close by. It's just a 5 minute stroll to Oxford Street and all the shops. Lots of buses to choose from to get to all parts of the city. (If you have a Senior Bus Pass - or similar - you can save loads o' money.) The staff are very friendly and helpful. There's a nice comfy lounge lounge where the staff will bring tea or coffee for you - or to your room if you prefer. We stayed two nights 31st Jan - 1st Feb 2013. We've stayed there twice but it won't be the last time.

My wife and I stayed at The Sumner for the first time, but it will definitely not be the last. Very friendly staff, very nice breakfast, very clean and spacious room. Only 3 minutes walk from Oxford street with all it`s delights. Perfect for us. We can recommend this hotel to anyone going to London.

We booked this hotel as a bit of a blow out treat for ourselves over Christmas. It was a lovely romantic stay (in fact my now fiance proposed on the trip!) and the hotel was convenient, but I must say for the money I did expect a little more.

We were offered an upgrade when we arrived from a very nice receptionist, but we turned it down after looking as the room was dated and facing the street on the ground floor, whereas the room upstairs was on the top floor and no noise. The hotel is a converted Victorian house and the floors have not been reinforced so you do hear people moving around. Luckily, our 'neighbours' didnt seem like big party animals so it was fine. Lovely thought to offer free tea and coffee brought to your room any time you need it, with little choc biscuits.

A REALLY good spread for breakfast and the service is good. You can totally fill up and last all the way to dinner if you wanted. Very close so the location is the thing you pay for I guess.....you can walk to Oxford Street, Hype Park etc. That's the best bit about London. 6 min walk from Marble Arch.

Can't really fault the hotel (aside from really bad TV signal), just kind of expected more, but maybe I just havent seen the other offerings in London. A solid bet for people who want to be near the centre.

Room Tip: Go to the top floor for quiet rooms. A little cosier but very romantic.

This was my second visit to The Sumner. On both occasions staying in conjunction with a business colleague.
We are both agreed this is a perfect boutique hotel with a very good pub next door.
Lovely atmosphere. Could do without the constant pan pipes in drawing room however.
Breakfast perfectly adequate....it is a hotel breakfast.
Pleasant, helpful and courteous staff.
Perfectly situated near the Central Line for business meetings.
I will use it whenever visiting London

Room Tip: Choose a rear facing room for preference in terms of street noise.
