On arriving the reception staff were very pleasant. A man who I presume to be a manager was miserable as was the security man. Communal areas were quiet and lifeless and there was never anyone behind the bar to get a drink. Room was a good size but definitely wasn't what I would consider to be 5* at all. Some of the furniture was really dated and the top of the table was bubbling. The pillows were the most uncomfortable pillows I have ever had and therefore had hardly any sleep. We had no view only of the dirty air conditioning units. We only had one teabag left in the room which was quickly rectified following a call to reception. The leisure facilities were ok. The pool was not very warm and the steam room was not even switched on to use. Not enough seats in the pool area. The changing rooms were not open so we had to walk through the hotel in our robes and we had no slippers in the room. Breakfast was very average. Very basic and not very hot. I would expect table service in a 5* hotel rather than help yourself. All in all I was extremely disappointed as this was supposed to be a treat for my partner's birthday as we have never stayed in a 5* before and would not stay here again for the price. I have stayed in nicer 3* hotels. What I can say is the location was great and would definitely stay in Shoreditch again.

Hugely disappointing and a safety hazard. The firm alarm in our room was missing and the staff did nothing to fix this despite us reporting this twice during a 3 nights stay. The fire alarm went off at 4am and we seemed to be the only guests who came downstairs, to find a confused member of staff oblivious to the alarm blaring on the 1st floor. There was no cooked breakfast, the bar closed early and there was no room cleaning service, despite this being requested. We paid over £250 per night and it was not at all value for money. Very disappointed, does not in any way reflect the website nor the potential

Response from Darryn Tanner, General Manager at Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear Guest, we appreciate your review of your stay and are sorry to hear that it was not as you wished. We do take all feedback seriously and address all points made with our teams. On some quieter days we may offer continental breakfast rather than Full English, our Jailhouse Bar is available to residents later in the evening where the Night Manager will serve drinks upon request, apologies if your room was not serviced, we do have Housekeeping staff working every day and any additional items can be requested from Front desk if required although some guests in current climate prefer their rooms not be serviced. We do of course take Fire Safety seriously with all staff trained so apologies if you felt that the front desk staff member was not clear on the situation, we would always have team members quickly investigate why an alarm has been triggered communicating back to the front desk the cause and necessary safe action to be taken. We do hope that you look to stay with us again in the future where you can have a more enjoyable relaxing stay.

Wow?! Probably one of the worst hotel experiences we have ever had, worse than a bog standard travel lodge. Whoever gave this hotel 5 stars needs to have a word with themselves. The Entrance is a shambles, staff are uninterested and unmotivated. There wad No one to help with bags or show us to our room so you have to guess where to go. The roof terrace suite is nice but could be a lot better, the living area is a just large open empty space, you have direct access to the roof terrace area which was closed and locked so couldn’t take any pictures or see the view. Called for some room service, were told the chef wasn’t cooking that day?! What?! Never heard of that in my life. Paid over £700 for this place which doesn’t offer any facilities?! Dressing gowns were dirty, towels were a joke. Random loud drilling and banging sounds throughout the day from somewhere. The curtain in the bedroom wasn’t fitted properly so let’s in lots of light in the morning. Asked if we could order breakfast in the room for the morning, was told I would need to call in the morning to check if they are offering that? Again this is not something that should be expected from a so called 5 star hotel. The only person that deserves some recognition at this hotel is James who helped us to park the car, he was very helpful, friendly and answered any questions we had with a smile on his face. He should be front of house or managing this place. This place is so badly run it needs to be shut down immediately, they need a whole new team in there as it has so much potential to be really good. I wouldn’t recommend it at all, even to my worse enemies.

I stayed here with my wife and 6 year old in a family suite for 2 nights. Decent sized room, but a bit tired. Worth noting that it seems all the bedrooms, even those named eg Dalston King are just double beds, the king is just the room name (as was the answer to a person's complaint at the front desk as I arrived). When you arrive the desk that looks like check in is actually security and he gruffly points you in the direction of check in desk. There's no offer of help with bags. No showing to room. The firealarm was above the bed and every 2 minutes fashed in a circle which lit the room when the lights were off - somehow directed at the pillows ie straight into your eyes when trying to sleep. This was fixed for the second night, but appears from speaking to other guests and looking in the corridor alarmd that this is a problem throughout the hotel. When I reported it I got the usual "did you report it last night" response (and I hadn't, because I had a 6 year old asleep in the bed- no parent wants a handyman in the room at midnight waking up a small child! ) I ordered room service the first night. Which was evidently an unusual thing to do despite the menu in the room. I ordered a main each for 3, one pudding to share, olives and a drink each. I was told this was a lot of food to order. And wasn't allowed to order a beer for myself. Was told that's a lot, I've got to check and hung up on. It arrived cold. But was tasty enough. Second night deliveroo, which is clearly the better option (but not one I was familiar with due to living very rurally) The room wasn't serviced during the day when we were out from 9 am to 6:30 pm, although fire alarm was fixed. I complained when we got back at 6:30 pm. And it was then serviced around 7:30. But for a family of 3 people in a 4 bed suite we were given 2 sets of towels. And she still didn't remove the room service plates from the night before. The TV in the bathroom didn't work. The phone in the sitting area didn't work. No pen or paper. The loo roll holder wasn't attached to the wall, it just swung loose. The couch was horribly uncomfortable. The thermostat kept resetting itself! Shower water pressure was great. The room was quiet. Breakfast was a very standard hot and cold buffet. Nothing special. On a par with a slightly substandard Premier Inn breakfast. I had to ask for a glass of water as this wasn't an option, and again I was made to feel like this was a strange request for breakfast. When we arrived there wasn't anyone to greet us for a few minutes, we tried to guess if we were supposed to just sit down or sign in somehow. At 8 am on a Saturday. A minor niggle but just part of the customer service failure in a supposedly 5 star London Hotel. Everything just seemed an effort for staff. We had booked and paid for late checkout. This wasn't noted on check in and hadn't been applied until I thought to double check it on the second morning. We had booked a bowling alley session for 9:30 AM. This wasn't ready, had to be got ready, which took time and meant we had to cut it short due to a lunch date. However in recompense for my litany of complaints it was given to us without charge. Which I do appreciate. A friend recommended the Courthouse Hotel when I said I was looking for somewhere a bit special for an anniversary celebration. It was memorable for all the wrong reasons. It cost just shy of a thousand pounds for 2 nights. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone at this point

I'm not one for writing reviews, but I think some of the recent ones are a little harsh. We were staying at the CHS to be able to attend a works christmas party very nearby, so this was in walking distance. We arrived pretty much bang on when we could check in, and that was all pretty smooth given the room had been pre-paid. We had a room facing the front, but the road noise wasn't too bad. We had water bottles and milk in the fridge, and tea and coffee. Oddly one pack of biscuits had one missing, but I guess a previous guest was not hungry enough for both - suffice to say we left the 2nd biscuit as was. The bed was comfy, the shower hot, and there were enough towels for us both. The wifi was useable, nothing amazing, but worked fine for my needs. We had no issues with fire system lights or leds in the ceiling. The room was pretty quiet, which surprised us as we were the nearest to the lift, but barely heard it. Breakfast the next morning was adequate. A colleague said the milk for the cereal was off, so we avoided it, so can't comment on the truth of that, but everything else was edible and filled a void and helped with the hangovers. All in all, it was OK. Nothing that wow'd me, but all pretty clean and tidy. Having read the reviews prior to going I wasn't really looking forward to our stay, so it was a pleasant surprise that it really wasn't that bad. Unlikely to stay there again, and remember, I didn't pay for out stay anyway, so wasn't really that fussed. :)
