My wife and I along with another couple just spent 5 nights at the Ridgemont Hotel. We did know before we arrived that the rooms were small, and that there as no air conditioners. We arrived and Mum (the owner) welcomed us with a hug, and advise our rooms would be done shortly. This hotel has many rooms, and they... More

Ridgemount was recommended by a friend and we couldn't have been more pleased staying here. It was easily accessible from the Metro (even for inexperienced travelers) and we were so nicely welcomed in from the rain. The accommodations are simple but complete and the staff is delightful. Breakfast is very filling and the servers are so attentive. Mr. Rees was... More

Whatever plans you have for the day, tell them to the older man who is working the breakfast room when he asks, then take his bus route advice. It's brilliant. Clean, quiet rooms, reasonable rate, first rate location for seeing the sights. Enjoyed our stay!

Recently took my grandson from Missouri to Europe to celebrate high school graduation and we stayed eight nights at the Ridgemount. I first stayed there 35 years ago, 25 years ago, 11 years ago, and intermittently over the decades. The Rees family and staff work very hard to be kind to travelers, and every effort is always made.

We stayed 3 nights from Wednesday 18th. Very spacious family room no. 6 just for the 2 of us, with 3 beds to choose from. Not en suite - had to share bathroom facilities with occupants in 8 rooms.

Lovely small hotel, very central, good breakfast, stayed in a single room which was very quiet.Room was small but shower was large--just what one wants when its simply somewhere to crash. Good wifi. Common room if one wants to chill in an armchair. some computers available for use by guests.

This place is a small family run place, and you won't get a designer bathroom or (for some rooms) a bathroom at all. But for what it is I thought it was excellent. It's a lovely Georgian house, and my single ensuite room was spacious - I have paid considerably more for much smaller rooms in central london. There also... More
