Good afternoon, thank you for leaving a review about your time here at the Wellington, i was told by my colleage the incident that happened that day ragarding you and your wife. i would like to bring to your attention that you threatened a memeber ofm staff and also damnged some of my property by pouring your drinks over them which we have had to pay to get cleaned. You wife was asleep in our bar for more then 2 hours and while we understand that your wife had treatment due to her heath conditions we just thought that the safer option was for her to return home in the current climit (Corna virus).

Came to London for a day out and one of my favourite bars is the Wellington. This was my first visit since Covid and was a little uncertain how it would be run. You can choose table service or use their app....he table service was very swift. The bar/serving team were excellent, managing the customer experience very well. I felt very safe.

Me and one of brother's arrived Sunday and stayed til Tuesday. We arrived early and well before check In time, one of the friendly staff Keighley let us put or cases in a secure cupboard and we went for a bit of sightseeing. Was only a few minutes walk to the Thames on this side was the London Eye first and over that bridge was the houses of parliament and big Ben so we was pretty close. I'd point out also that Waterloo Station tube is just over the road from the hotel. It's a pub hotel so you can chill with a few drinks at the end of your sightseeing, we are from South Yorkshire and as its London we expected prices of alcohol to be pricey so that wasn't a shock. Along the street the hotel is based are numerous bus stops, sainsburys, tesco and other pubs and some nice restaurants, I'd Defo recommend the tasty bro's pizza restaurant which is just a 2 min walk away on same side of road. The hotel itself, first of a the staff we're so nice and cheerful and helpful if we had any questions. The room we had was just right for us. It had fridge, your usual brewing facilities, kettle, coffee/tea bags etc. Hairdryer. Shower and shower/wash jels etc. As it was one of the hottest few days we stayed, it obviously got a little stuffy in the room but one window did open and as we we're out most of day and night that was spot on. The breakfast: we we're offered pastries, hot/cold drinks and choices of full English or other choices which we didn't need because we went for the full English which was fantastic and really tasty and big, e.g sausage, double fried egg, bacon, tomatoe, beans in a small pot, toast, butter, honey and jam, Black pudding, hash brown,large mushroom, it was gorgeous. If I was to visit london again I'd Defo return here. Prepare to expect a little noise, as the bus's are always stopping outside and there's a nearby tube that's noisy. Overall I'd definitely recommend this hotel as we had a fab stay and felt very welcome and looked after.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights from March 12th to March 16th. The hotel is centrally located We walked from Victoria Train station to hotel in about 8 minutes. The hotel is very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful The 2 women at front desk from Russia and Ireland were especially nice. I will stay here again if I am in London. I noticed another review that said it was an old building and no lift. That is not true. It is also not close to Waterloo. I think they went to a different hotel

Very high prices in bar, rip off bar prices. E.g. 2 double Morgan Spiced rum and dash of Cola £18.40. Could of bought a litre bottle of said spirit for about £15 to £18 in supermarkets. No problem with bars making a profit, but don’t rip the backside out of it.
