We stayed here for 3 nights in early february. The staff were very courteous and welcoming. Room was quite small but clean and cozy. Beds and pillows were comfy enough. Breakfast was basic but nice. Very well located, 3 minutes walk to the baker street tube station, starbucks is just around the corner, also walking distance to tesco. Area was quiet as it is not facing the major/main roads. Overall we like it here and probably will come again!

Dear valued guest

We thank you very much for your feedback and I am happy to learn that you were happy during your stay with us. Our location and staff are our 2 key assets - and I am glad to note that both were the highlight of your stay.

The hotel was converted from old Victorian townhouse and we were therefore restricted in the room sizes to the original building. We have tried to overcome by the warm and cozy nature of the room decor.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Stayed here for 3 nights in October, having chosen it after reading previous reviews.

It looked quite nice on arrival, with pretty windowboxes, and the man on reception was welcoming. The lift to the 3rd floor was tinyl and slow, and we were disappointed on opening our door to find such a small room - we had to edge between the bed and the table to get to the window side. Storage consisted of an open closet plus a drawer, thought there was a safe. The TV appeared to have only terrestrial channels. The bathroom was also small (you had to close the lid in order to flush the loo),the towels were decidedly skimpy and there was nowhere to put the soap by the sink, so the nice dark surround quickly became a swampy mess.

The bed itself proved to be very comfortable, but there was a lot of street noise (and we live in a capital city, we're not country mice!). The walls must be quite thin, because we could hear people coughing and a crying baby in other rooms.

Breakfast was served in a basement room, though in fairness it was quite light. There was a hot and cold buffet, and although there was a decent selection of foods, we felt the ingredients were fairly basic. Also breakfast is only served till 9 a.m. (9.30 a,m, at weekdays), whiuch is quite early for leisure visitors. The waiting staff were very friendly.

There are no restaurant facilities apart from this, though you will find plenty places nearby.

The one outstanding advantage of this hotel is its location off Marylebone Road and parallel to Baker Street, so you are very close to all forms of public transport. If you don't mind a very basic place to stay, then this hotel would fit the bill.

Blandford Hotel is the most charming hotel with extremely polite and nice staff. I traveled with my spouse and grandmother, we had two separate rooms for a week long leisure trip.

Our room was just perfect, clean, roomy, nice new flat screen tv. My grandmother's single room was of course much smaller, and otherwise it was good, except that in the bathroom it smelled like mold. Probably something has got stuck there inside the walls or something. Also there was hardly any hot water in her room, in ours everything worked like a charm though. The location is quiet enough to garantee a good night sleep, and the beds were very soft and comfy. The toilet was very clean and sheets and towels were changed every other day.

The location is perfect, near the tube and busses, and LOTS of restaurants and pubs all around. I recommend Pizza Express.

The WLAN is available and we bought it a couple of times for 24 hours. Of course the signal is what you could expect - so weak, that you really have to find the spot that works best. But we got it working and made use of the Internet by finding shops etc.

The English Breakfast is magnificent with bacon, beans, sausages, all the work. Impossible to stay hungry!

I've been suggesting the Blandford Hotel to all of our friends, and if we come back to London, we'll be surely staying there again.

What a relief to find this lovely little hotel after hours online! Short walk from Baker St station and major bus stops the Blandford is a quiet and restful retreat. Comfy bed, clean room and bathroom. Ensuite bathroom. Decor is probably a bit dated but everything was in good order. Shower always hot. We had breakfast included, which was really filling. Great service from all staff. Would definitely stay here again.
