We booked The Harrison on a whim realising that the local Travelodge wouldn't hold our luggage for the day while we waited for our night-time flight. What a find! It's about an 8min walk from Kings Cross station down a quiet street. The staff were exceptionally warm and friendly and the small pub on the ground floor has great character. Our room on the top floor (narrow stairs...no lift, you need to be mobile to stay here) was small but very clean, comfortable and had the feel of staying with friends rather than a more stale hotel environment. It was very quiet with no noise from traffic or the bar below. We had to travel downstairs to get the wi-fi to work, but the bar was a comfortable spot for surfing.
The night we stayed there was an acoustic music session on downstairs. The candle lit bar was full of what appeared to be friendly regulars - quite an eclectic mix of young and old. The staff extended the food-service hours so we could eat and the entertainment was very pleasant. Food was reasonably priced and very tasty.
We pre-ordered what we would like for breakfast and had it delivered to our room at no extra cost. Staff were accommodating to the dietary needs my partner and I have. They stored our luggage at no extra cost. At £59 for a double room including breakfast, this is a great independent alternative to the budget hotels nearby. I will definitely be returning.
