We live in London, and one of us works near Mecklenburgh Square, but we had never heard of this place until we were given a weekend "hall pass" by the in-laws. The room was small, but comfortable with all amenities. The price is extraordinary for a London hotel of this quality. The only minor quibble is that the room had...

The room was fine and the staff friendly but it was by no means is it luxury. The room was small, bed rather hard and the floor had not quite been hoovered properly, but we got new towels in the morning and there is everything you need (hair dyer, tea/coffee etc); it is fine for just somewhere to sleep but...

My wife and I stayed here last year as we are in London on a weekly basis and about twice a month need to book a hotel. We needed a room for three nights. Year in year the price per night had skyrocketed. Never mind we knew that the lodging was to a very good standard, or so we thought....

Perfect place to stay in walking distance to the Universities. Spacious room, very clean, comfortable bed, very quiet. Staff is friendly and helpful. English breakfast at the college is fantastic. Easy to reach from Heathrow. Stayed there several times when in London and was never disappointed.

I stayed here for one night on business. Single room was immaculate and spotless with a lovely modern bathroom. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. I had a great nights sleep in a comfortable bed. Breakfast across in the college in the morning was lovely again with very helpful and welcoming staff. Would definitely stay again.

My husband found this guest house by chance a couple of years ago, and we've stayed a few times since. It's in a lovely location - a really quiet square that seems miles away from the bustle of London, but barely any distance from the centre of things. Rooms have lovely views over the gardens of the square. The breakfasts...

It's simply the best Guest House in London, ever since. It's not a Hotel. All the rooms with street view are the most wonderful, especially the 321 and 341. Be careful there is no elevator, but once you reached the room the quietness and the view are simply the best. The breakfast is taken in the Goodenough College, across the...

I've stayed at the Goodenough annually for about the past 15 years. It is a home away from home, located in a refurbished Georgian row overlooking Mecklenburg Square, a private gated park. The rooms come in varying configurations, and are arranged with the traveling business person or academic in mind, with a good-sized desk, high speed connectivity, luxurious en suites...
