“Birthday celebration”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

As it was my daughter's birthday we decided to stay in London to celebrate, the room was a good size with a double and a sofa bed the bathroom was clean and spacious. The only criticism of the room was that it was cold as the afternoon turned into evening as the air con only blew cold, we mentioned it to reception and within 5 minutes a portable heater arrived so problem solved. On Sunday when we came down for breakfast the dining room was full so we were offered to sit in the bar area which we did taking our plates with us we were advised that someone would be with us shortly to take our beverage order, after 10 minutes no one had come over so my husband went back to ask to be told again that someone would be right with us we waited a further 10 minutes and then gave up! Eventually when we were getting up to return to our room we were offered takeaway hot drinks not really what I would have expected from a premium hotel.

We stayed at the Sherlock Holmes for a 70th Birthday Party reception. The accommodation and the meal were excellent. The beef served with the meal was some of the best we have ever tasted. Should we stay in London for a few nights again this hotel will be on the top of our list.

Great location, only ten minutes walk to the shopping street, many places to dine in the neighborhood. Our room was quite large, wooden floors, nice bed, the bathroom needed a little touch-up. Friendly staff! Have stayed here before, and will probably stay again in the future.

We stayed here recently on a Saturday evening. Our room was upgraded to a suite, which was very spacious for our needs, and in a quiet location towards the back of the hotel. The room itself was very clean and the bed very comfortable, although the bathroom was a little bit small - but I do expect that in a central London location.
We ate in the hotel as part of a large group. The food was excellent, and the portions huge. All the food came out together which is often difficult with a large group, especially as the restaurant was busy that night.
The service throughout our stay was very efficient and welcoming. Overall we had a very good trip.

Stayed for one night as having dinner in town. Stayed in a double suite, split level. Bed was on a level above the sitting area. Very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom and very comfortable stay for an overnight although the suite would be considered too small for a longer stay. Excellent location for access to the city. Nice touch with the Sherlock Holmes collected works in the bedside draw although my partner got the Gideon bible. My gain I believe. Would stay again when need an overnight in London.

Nice. Very centrally located hotel in London, with more space than we have had in any hotel room in London previously. Maybe we just got an over-sized room. But, it was nice after the postage stamp sized ones we had stayed in previously. They held our luggage after checkout so we could go and see the British Museum nearby. Very accommodating staff as well.

I have just come back from London after staying at this hotel on Friday evening - we stayed in a superior twin - the room was beautifully decorated but small - saying that though the bathroom was very spacious and the bath was huge - I have never seen a bath so big - the food in the restaurant was okay - I asked for a steak medium/rare it came overcooked - I spoke to a waitress who took it away and brought it back completely cremated - which did make me laugh but after explaining again - the correct steak arrived. The hotel is in a prime location for Madame Tussauds and also an approx 10 minute was from Oxford Street - just come out of the hotel turn left walk to the bottom of the road and Oxford Street is there. We had a function there on the Saturday but that was a bit of a disaster it took nearly an hour to get a drink due to staff shortages - but apart from that it was okay
