4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

This is the place to stay if you don't want to spend all your money on living! It's a quiet area, at the same time close to the tube and busses. The staff is very friendly, we will defenetly come back and stay at this hotel. Breakfast is nice. The room was not too big, but clean. Nice bed, slept well. It takes aprox 10 min. to walk to Oxford street. Only thing that coult have been better was the Wi-Fi :) All in all: very satisfied !

Dear Kristin1966,

Thank you very much for staying with!
I am very glad to hear that you would like stay with us again and therefore your feedback regarding your experience is very important for us!
I am really glad to hear that you could enjoy our location and easy access to the Tube or walking distance to the Oxford Street! I am sure it was even more comfortable when you were returning back to the hotel with your full shopping bags.
Our rooms are adequate in size but as you mentioned our staff is trying to do their best to keep our rooms well maintained and clean for your comfort!
I am glad to hear that you did enjoy our breakfast as well, our staff is always looking after our hot or cold buffet to ensure that you have a good start of the day!
Thank you for your feedback regarding wifi, we will try to sort the issue with our network provider!

We really hope to see you soon again in Blandford!

Kind Regards,

Sam

Blandford is a really nice hotel in silent street, near the tube. Rooms are quite small, but modern and clean. The biggest surprise for me were breakfast. It was really tasty and abundant. It's definitely hotel for my next trip to London.

Blandford is a safe, clean and cosy hotel. The location is the best, the prices are okay, and the staff is amazing. The 3 guys in the reception are always nice, and they can answer all your questions about london. This is the 4th time I stayed here, and as I have lived in London, I have tried a lot of hotels. Still, I always return to Blandford. Only thing I would point out, is the WiFi internet. It is not so good.

See you soon!

You need to make the Wi-Fi better. Our third visit to the Blandford over the last 3 years and the wifi signal this time was terrible. Constant disconnections are annoying when your away from your business and need to keep in touch with it and having to have different log in tickets for each device is very frustrating. Not good.
I'll make another suggestion too. Get the kitchen staff at breakfast to keep the sausage and bacon hotter, lukewarm at best each morning. And we asked for a queen room and got 2 twins.

But lets get those minus points out of the way and move on.. the reason i keep coming back. I still like it here. Its incredibly convenient for the Tube and the open top buses outside Tussauds with a tescos and starbucks close by. The hotel is on a quiet road with no noise at night. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble when you ask them something.

Yes the rooms are small BUT ITS LONDON! Your not spending all day in the room, your out exploring and doing stuff. It dont matter! Room prices are good when you visit in March.

And i discovered an excellent little Indian restaurant 450' down the road called "New Diwan I Am" . Its on my list for next year too.

And then you have Costa (no not the coffee shop around the corner) one of the guys that works at the Blandford. What a really nice man. You sir, were a star. Thank you for all your help. Thank you for being our ride in from Heathrow and back out and thank you for being so nice too.

I pondered what score this year. I always give 4 but the wifi this time was a massive frustration. I'll give it 3 this year for the wifi and the wrong beds BUT Costa got you back up to 4.

See you again next year but please fix the wifi first

Hotel was clean from outside but not so inside, our room number 30 on the top floor was like a little capsule, it was so tiny for 2 people, no space at all, literally had to walk sideways around the bottom of the bed to get to the tea and coffee and those awful little milk things, (it is my mission to get these banned from all hotels!!!) Just put in a little mini fridge with fresh milk in it pleaseeeee. The staff were pleasant, the breakfast average but please manager of the hotel, banish all tinned fruit!! this is really bad, just put some fresh fruit out instead and leave it in the skins if don't want wasted. The biggest problem was the bed, it was awful, a big lump in the middle and I felt like I was cliff hanging all night, it needs immediate replacement for any other guests, the room was way too hot and so at 2am I opened the window and was met with 3 massive search lights on the wall of the fire escape so I could not leave open the curtain to let in air. It was a long night............... I stayed away from the cooked breakfast and just had tea and toast which was ok but he bread was very thin and cheap quality. The whole place lacks any atmosphere, I needed the loo in reception and they could hear me having a wee on the top floor, a little background music would be so much more pleasant for guests. The free tea and coffee in reception is good idea but please make available proper cups! and proper milk! I know you are going to have to wash them but its the little touches that people like. Would I stay again, well this was our 2nd visit, if I am stuck with nowhere else then maybe I would but please take on board our comments.

Stayed here in April 2014 and enjoyed a wknd with my daughter. Very close to the tube, have stayed several times here, as have other family members and really enjoyed the location, nice breakfast and most of all the lovely friendly staff that remember us every time we go back. I have stayed at other hotels last minute when the Blandford was fully booked but they have never been as nice, so we have always come back here. My daughter moved house in 2009 and had a few nights between accommodation and stayed at the Blandford, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and she has been visiting ever since. Clean, comfortable, great location, quiet street and lovely staff.
