I stayed for a week in July while my husband was in London Health Science Centre. It was about a 12 - 15 min walk to the hospital and perfect for my needs. I had rented a room with 2 pc bathroom since I knew I was staying several days. Staff was good and sharing kitchen and dining space was... More

Basic inexpensive hotel. Clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful. Sharing the shower was not bad at all and probably worth it to save a bit of money.. They don't have food so you have to eat out.

I stayed here as a courtesy of an employer for whom I was presenting a workshop. It was seriously alright. The Guest House on the Mount is a former Roman Catholic Motherhouse that provides a variety of lodgings from single room, no bath ($39) to queen suite (3-piece bath, TV) for $89.00 (plus tax). It was sufficient, but not much... More

What an interesting place this was. A great deal located just s short distance from Western University where we were visiting. Our family suite was enormous. There were two single beds behind a wall, and a queen bed in this huge open space, with a couch, table, TV, etc. The place was very clean and comfortable. There was one mens... More

My husband was sent by air ambulance to London University hospital on Sunday...and we knew we would be staying in the are for a few weeks. I needed to be close by just in case. I asked one of the nurses where I could stay, and a few suggested we stay here. It's about 4 miles from the hospital, and... More

We stayed for three nights with three or four family members. The room is enormous with two singles and a double bed. A divider wall. in the middle of the room separates the two singles from the double. A small fridge (probably left by previous guests) was useful, the kitchen has two large fridges and draws available to guests. The... More

I have stayed here a couple of times. It is a cheap alternative to a hotel but I always feel as though I have gone back in time to being a poor student when I stay there. It happens to be right next to my mother-in-law's seniors' residence at The Mount which is the reason for staying in the first... More

This is a nice spot and great value. It has historic value, in my opinion in that it used to be part of "The Mount"/"Sisters of St. Joseph - the Guest House is where the Nuns used to sleep. It has been converted, You have options from sizes of beds to no bath, shared bath, half bath, family suites -... More

The location within walking distance and he price is what steered me to this accomodation. I was pleasantly surprised by the nice comfortable, clean room. My room was not well insulated from noise of other guests and the doors are large , heavy and are noisy to close if you aren't careful. People seem to be coming and going at... More

I stay at this place regularly because of it's convenient location to the hospital and sometimes I am called from out of town to work in London for a day, thus simply needing a safe bedroom to stay overnight for one night. For the price, this is an excellent place to stay. The bedding does feel a little worn out,... More
