We stayed here from the 5th-7th July and thought it was a fab hotel in a fab location...it totally suited our needs as we had come to London to sight seeing and to see a show!...after originally spending a long time time trawling the Internet for a hotel in our price range (especially as that weekend was the men's final at Wimbledon and the stones in Hyde park and prices seemed ridiculous)....we found that is was great value for money....including the fantastic breakfast, full English (however which way u want it) aswell as continental being on offer...a great way to set you up for a day of sight seeing!!! We also found it great that we could have a drink in the bar downstairs, ear plugs were provided in room but to be honest we experienced no real noise...rooms were clean and charming!! Staff were very attentive and friendly, evening allowing us to leave our bags after we had checked out, so we could go and explore until it was time for us to leave for home.
Would most defo stay here again!! Was a great experience!

Stayed for 1 night to visit theatre, fantastic location and easy walking distance to lots of attractions, we also walked there from Victoria coach station, only took 30 mins. Pub nice and friendly, duty manager and general manager both very friendly and helpful. Rooms small but bed lovely and clean and comfortable, excellent shower, all furniture and decor looking tired but this will not stop us returning. As for the breakfast ( included in price of room)!!! Wow, continental selection fantastic, the full English used great ingredients and not only cooked to perfection but presented lovely as well. We will definitely stay again.

We stayed in the Wellington for just one night and I am happy to recommend it. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was small but spotlessly clean and the breakfast, which is included in the price, was superb. The hotel is really well situated for sightseeing and, even though it's on a busy main road, across from the station, the free ear plugs made sure that I got a really good night's sleep.

Excellent location - just across the road from main line trains and tubes. Easy walk to many tourist locations. We were there to go to a concert at the O2, so easy to get there from waterloo. The hotel was clean and staff friendly which was great, stayed in loads of London hotels and this is far the friendliest. For a room rate to include breakfast this to is unusual, the breakfast was really good, lovely freshly cooked breakfast and plenty of other options. The hotel is extremely close the train lines but we slept well and they do supply earplugs. The bathroom was small but the shower was excellent and everything was really clean. Felt very safe there. Will definitely stay at this hotel again.

I am sitting in my office on this very hot day, reading reviews. I read your comments and I'm glad that you felt safe and you enjoyed your stay with us. I hope that you enjoyed the concert at the O2. On a final note, yes, I agree, in fact I believe that the showers at the Wellington are the best in London. Thank you for your review.

The wellington is ideally situated just across the road from Waterloo station on a busy and noisy main road . When I got to check in that was ok and went quite smoothly but when I got to the room (room 22) it wasn't ready the bed wasn't made and all the linen was all over the floor and the 2 cleaners were arguing shouting and swearing at each other not good in front of guests but I guess it was free entertainment while my room was being made up .the en-suite rooms are well equipped bed,freeview tv, fan,wardrobe,table & tea and coffee making facilties and also a en suite bathroom (walk in shower sink , toilet but for the price i paid £60 its ok .So overall would I stay here again yeah despite everything I would

Hi shane1212. Thank you for your comments. I apologise for the behaviour of the house keeping staff. As we have a check out time of 11am, it is sometimes a struggle to have all rooms ready for check in after a fully occupied night. We are looking into a sollution on how to manage this problem. Apart from the problems mentioned, I do hope that you found the stay pleasureable.

There for 4 nights. Not budget price range but clean room, good bed, good food and safe. Pub below always busy so drank elsewhere. Staff nice, location great for getting around London on tube or walking to West end. Only downside is the main commuter train line 20 metres from bedroom window. Not too noisy and we slept well but light sleepers beware

Room Tip: As far away from the railway line as possible.

The location couldn't be much better, just across the road from Waterloo station and a few minutes walk to the London Eye and just a little more to Westminster. The rooms are small, but clean With free bottle of drinking water, coffee and tea making facilities, a TV set and somewhat old fashioned. We stayed 4 Nights and were not too much disturbed by the noise from the Trains. We never used the supplied ear plugs and slept well. If you travel with 2 big suitcases, it could be a slight problem to place them without blocking the access to the bed.
The bathroom was clean and ok, with a shower that must be among the best I've had at any hotel, very good pressure and lots of hot water and doors that didn't let a drop of water get through to the floor.
The staff was friendly and helpful and the downstairs pub/bar was nice and a good place to sink a pint of real ale on our way out or back.
A full English breakfast, well prepared, was included and served in the ground floor bar.
For the location, and included breakfast, we found The Wellington exellent value (for London that is) and will certainly stay there again next time.
