I've used Highbury on a few trips to London because it's such good value, close to the centre of London and easy to get to. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable and the staff are always friendly and helpful. I don't get a room with an ensuite because they are so tiny and I've never had to... More

Although the charter specifies Christian Workers, this accommodation is also open to anyone for a slightly higher charge. [Or put it another way, there is a discount for some.] These comments are based on a Double en-suite, which we had, though we were initially able to reserve a Family Room and go on a waiting list for the en-suite.

We needed a base in London for a night and sought out the Highbury Centre - and not for the first time - we went there on our honeymoon 45 years ago and from time to time since. on every occasion it is upgraded and this was no exception. We checked out at the correct time but they allowed us... More

My ranking is based on comparison with other Christian accommodation that I have stayed at. If I had not stayed at St Katherine's in Limehouse or the Woodbrooke Quaker Centre in Birmingham, I would have rated the Highbury Centre higher. But, the other two are without doubt of higher quality and even more so given that they also charge about... More

The Highbury Centre is the perfect place for ministry workers and their families to take a break and enjoy a comfortable room, hearty breakfast and kind people only a short walk to the London Underground. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My wife and me, our 10-month old baby, and my in laws stayed here for 5 days in May and we'd come again. We used Highbury Centre as a home base for our London sightseeing and really enjoyed the short walk through the park to and from the Highbury/Islington tube stop each day. The Centre is clean, free daily breakfast... More

Enjoyed my visit - friendly receptionist, room basic but clean and comfortable, very nice breakfast. Although it has a Christian connection, non-believers are welcome, and they don't try to convert you over breakfast! It's a little bit of a trek to the Tube, but it's not too bad.

Easy to get to by bus or tube (Highbury and Islington and then a short ten minute walk), this is a great value place to stay. Very peaceful and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was simple but relaxed. Good to know your money is going to a positive venture, rather than the usual profit making hotels.

We use The Highbury Centre once a year for school admission appeal hearings and would thoroughly recommend their meeting rooms for those on a budget. We usually plumb for the inclusive rate which includes lunch, teas, coffees which is under £30 per person including room hire and limited parking. The staff are always very friendly and the food, although simple,... More

If you know this is not a fancy place, you can be very happy at this simple place. I loved the included breakfasts simple, but substantial and a real cost saver. We shared a clean bathroom down the hall. It hardly ever seemed occupied so no bother. The four we got in the room saved us so much money that... More
