“A last minute.com secret hotel booking - fab experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have never used the secret hotel booking via Lastminute.com before but I have to say, what a pleasant surprise.
I booked a twin room as a last minute booking for a stay over in London after a reception.
Excellent room, spacious with huge x 2 twin beds. Spotlessly clean.
Friendly reception staff.
And, to my surprise a pool, sauna and jacuzzi thrown in for a nominal fee.
I had it all to myself in the morning what a lovely way to start the day.
A delicious choice for breakfast.
I will definitely visit this hotel again.

I stay at this hotel 3 or 4 times a year, not through any sense of brand loyalty but because it is the nearest to a business client. It is very expensive for what and where it is but the staff are friendly and the rooms are perfectly adequate. What is unacceptable is the quality of the TV reception. There is a major sporting event in London in a coupe of weeks' time and you will be able to watch it in your room providing you don't mind white lines and snow storms.

Clear TV reception is not rocket science so why can't this particular hotel be bothered? You would think as they are charging £5 for an hour of internet access that there would be plenty of money in the budget for customer comforts.

excellent package, accommodation, food and service fabulous stay for myself, my husband and daughter.
Plenty of room in the room for all 3 of us, clean and quiet.
Didn't get to use the other facilities, gym etc, but all in all a good stay at this hotel, would definitely come back.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn for couple of nights during a recent business trip. The hotel was ok but a little run down when compared to other Holiday Inn hotels I have stayed in.
The room was small but not tiny, and very clean. Continental breakfast was ok, nothing more. A downside is the distance from the center and the nearest tube station- some 10 minutes on foot. Overall not bad for business purposes, for a family holiday there are better options.

I enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn and would recommend it. Beds were comfortable and for around 4 pounds you get access to the wonderful pool, gym, and sauna on the 1st floor. Worth the price.

English Breakfast was also a plus. Surprisingly good. While it is a bit far from the Kings Cross Station, there is a very convenient bus stop that can take you there and runs every 8 minutes. You can get an Oyster Card across the street.

We stayed at this Hotel as part of a package Fri to Sunday including a night at the West End Theatre. with Train travel Return from Glasgow.
I know London pretty well having worked in and around for many years,so it was pleasant to get a lovely room 7th Floor...very quiet..(although a seemingly very busy Tourist hotel and Business no doubt during the week)...Room was great, big single twin beds and very clean.
Breakfast (full English ) was excellent and the civility and helpfullness of the Staff Check -In,Dining and Housekeeping was much appreciated ...a wee observation though ,goodness knows how the London Hotel industry could operate without the many hard working foreign workforces...it was genuinely pleasing seeing how they coped with all off the many diverse tourists/residents...well done indeed..!..
Only drawback we felt was the location...3 Underground Stations i.e.. Kings Cross, Faringdon and Russell Square are just a wee bit far ( 15/20 min walk ?)....so Taxis were found to be necessary...and this did add unexpectedly to the weekend costs..but hey, central/west end London is not the place to go if hoping to penny pinch..!....enjoy the whole buzz of this great City...we did. !
ps The Hotel is right next to the large Royal Mail Depot ( Mount Pleasant)..but unless you are high up in Hotel you would never know..

Room Tip: Can only speak for 7th Floor (room 743)...great views, St Pauls, The Shard,and the Gerkhin buildings...
