We got a really good deal on a room here and to be fair the room and hotel itself was quite nice. I probably wouldn't consider it quite a 5* but no major complaints on the room itself. We were intending to spend all of our time (and probably a considerable amount of money) in the hotel bar and restaurant but unfortunately when we were waiting to be seated in the restaurant we saw a mouse wander across the floor and enter into the refrigeration system. I have a pretty big phobia of mice so this was less than ideal even disregarding the hygiene concerns. We flagged this to the both the restaurant staff and at reception and just received apologies - I mean, there were people dining in the restaurant, shouldn't they have been informed? It made me feel a bit sick to think that we could have eaten there. I've lived in London a long time and I've never experienced anything like this before. The staff could have done so much better in the handling of this situation - letting us know how they were going to rectify this and potentially compensating us proactively in some way. I didn't really feel like our very legitimate concerns were addressed. I think this is less to do with the staff themselves and more on a clear lack of training and autonomy, which most likely stems from management. Just guessing, though. Upon checkout one of the lovely receptionists did waive the cost of some drinks we had sent to the room, which was nice of her. Ultimately I would obviously never stay here again, and would warn people not to stay as a result of our experience.

Stayed for 1 night we got an upgrade. Must say very nice room and a great shower. We had a great night sleep. They have coffee in the room but no tea. So you have to ask for tea which they will bring up to your room. On the whole a pleasent experience. We also had breakfast which was served in the bar. That to was very nice.

Stayed in room 416. Nice room but small, comfortable bed. Great shower and nice amenities. No bin in the room but one in the bathroom. Big disappointment was that breakfast was only served from 08:00 and I was catching the 08:55 Eurostar and had to leave my expensive breakfast half eaten. Friendly enough staff.

Firstly, the rooms are lovely for a transit stop. I’ve stayed twice, for a single night before getting the Eurostar the next morning. The beds are comfy and the rooms are very quiet, and the pantry (when open) is a special treat. My only quibble is that the door to the bathroom is see through glass, so your travel companion can see you in the bathroom!!! And there is no rubbish bin in the room. However, the level of service lets this hotel down. I made a reservation online through their own website, but by the following morning had not received a confirmation. I contacted the hotel chain and they told me my reservation didn’t exist. So I made a second reservation. I checked the App, and discovered I had two reservations. I cancelled the second booking on the app, and emailed the hotel to confirm the cancellation. Via email with the hotel I confirmed that I only needed one of the bookings. When I arrived at the hotel, both reservations were still current and had to show the lady on reception the emails and messages on my phone to assist the situation and now I have to wait for a refund for one reservation despite cancelling it through the app before the cancellation deadline. I phoned reception to ask for a bottle opener to be brought up to the room, but were told no one would bring on to the room, but we could collect one from the bar. I went to the bar and was told we couldn’t take the opener to the room, but if I took the bottles to the bar, they would open them. Also, the TV remote didn’t work. I expected a higher level of service from a 5* London hotel, even if it is only a transit stop for me.

Dear charlottesZ6777UF, Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor following your recent stay with us at the Great Northern Hotel. Feedback from our guests is incredibly important to us and we are extremely grateful for any insights that you can provide. It was pleasing to read that you found the room to be comfortable and thank you for your comments in relation to the bathroom door which we have taken note of. It was extremely disappointing to read about your experience prior to arriving at the hotel, it is unusual for such a delay following a reservation being made and it is even more strange that the Reservation team could not see your booking. I would like to confirm that the second room was cancelled and the payment was refunded on Friday. I would like to apologise for inconvenience you have encountered and if I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. Kind Regards, Martin
