We recently stayed here over the weekend for a nearby wedding and what a treat it was. The newly weds live close-by so choose the The Alma pub for pre-wedding drinks on the Friday night, then hired a private room to watch the rugby on the Sunday. The old style pub has a lot of charm, with delicious gourmet finger... More

I stayed at the Alma this week for 3 nights and secretly hoped I would miss my flight back home, so I could stay another night and sleep again in a huge sleep-inducing bed. The attention to detail was evident in my beautiful room and in the public areas, such as the dining room. My room was quiet, serene, warm... More

Stayed here many times with family and we always have a wonderful time. The rooms are lovely, with comfy beds and great facilities. The new addition of sky tv is a bonus and the breakfast is amazing. I love the charm of the olde world pub attached and convenience to Wandsworth Town train station is great for exploring London. Can't... More

Regular stop over when working in London. Wonderful hotel, comfortable rooms, good room service options from the restaurant and I always enjoy my breakfast with the ever cheerful Lila and her long jam spoons. No tube - but well served by Uber

We had three nights recently at the Alma for a family wedding. Almost all guests stayed there which made for a fun weekend. The rooms were stylishly designed and were very comfortable. The restaurant downstairs was accommodating of large groups and served an excellent breakfast in the morning. The hotel is well located in the SW London area - directly... More

I really enjoy staying at The Alma. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The breakfast is super and I always look forward to the service and smile I get from Lila down in the dining room. Excellent place to stay in London..... a warm experience always found even in very cold weather.

My old local pub and took the opportunity to stay whilst on a business trip. Very comfortable, great service and above an excellent pub. Great and homely little place for anyone who fancies a homely, English piece of hospitality whilst travelling to London. Is south West London and 15mins train ride to Waterloo so ideal for those that don't mind... More
