“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I was looking for an alternative hotel where to stay when working al week in London. The usual ones have a awfully busy bridge on the way and in the morning it takes ages.
Found the Foley and gave it a try. The hotel is fantastic. Recently renovated, clean, very cosy, posh and elegant. Bathrooms are fantastic, and the atmosphere is truly amazing.
Just a bit of smell of "new building" which will vanish soon.
The restaurant share the same atmosphere, the food was very good and menu is generous. Maybe a bit pricey (the restaurant, the hotel is not), but the menu accommodates cheaper options too.
Personnel were very kind and professional. I felt very comfortable and looked after. Will go back again.

This can't be (it isn't) the first pub / hotel that Youngs has launched... but why has the launch been so poor? Inexperienced staff doing their best, badly kept beer, varnish coming off bar furniture to stain cloths. I am sure that things will improve, the food is good but service chaotic, but very disappointed & surprised with things so far. Please note, this is my experience in the bar, and have not stayed in the rooms.

This newly renovated/rebuilt Youngs Hotel and pub is a delight. Having stayed in Youngs hotels before we knew what to expect - but our expectations were far exceeded. The Foley is not just a pub/hotel - it is more like a 5 star boutique hotel. The rooms are wonderful and spacious and the decor is tasteful. The food here is superb! The breakfast is to die for - and it's available to non-residents. The beer, even by Youngs standards was exceptional. Very handy parking too and a lovely garden area. The staff are very helpful - the waitress at breakfast and the people at reception are a great asset to this establishment. There is nothing to fault here at all. I could go on and on, but go see for yourself. we loved it so much that we have booked again for next week!
