“Quite a few times”
Reviewed March 25, 2006

My wife and I have stayed at the Holborn Grange four or five times and at each stay have been delighted with the service and quality. The last time we took our son and his fiance with us and because of possible overbooking we were asked if we would like to upgrade to the City hotel. A limousine was provided to transport us to our new location which gave us wonderful views of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge etc. The only drawback was getting back into central London which the Grange Holborn is so ideally situated for. Is'nt it so nice after an evening out to return to the hotel and relax in the lounge with a nightcap. We are staying there again this Easter and we know it will be perfect.

Stayed for a weekend at lowest rate £90 per night.
Room was a bit small and decor looking a bit dated but was clean and quite comfortable.
The inclusive breakfast was not good enough; greasy croissants, watery orange juice and slightly dried up cheese. I think a full buffet breakfast should have been on offer in this price.
The pool was lovely though, quite unusual and definitely worth a visit.
Staff were friendly enough and well trained.
On the whole I give this hotel a 7/10.

Superb location just two minutes walk from Holborn Underground Station. Staff were friendly, courteous and eager to help. The rooms were well appointed and spotlessly clean. Contrary to the last review of the hotel I read, all our party thought the buffet breakfast was excellent with a good choice of food on offer. We visited the Spa each morning which had a decent size pool and complimentary towels and toiletries. We shall definitely return the next time we are in London.

We spent three nights at the Grange Holborn in February 2006. We booked on the hotel's website and it cost £250 for the full stay. On the positive side, this hotel is very well located, close to Covent Garden and the City. It is clean, the rooms are comfortable and well equipped with a kettle, ironing board, good quality toiletries and a selection of current magazines. In general the staff were friendly and helpful. However, it is on a main road and pretty noisy. We had a room at the back of the hotel and on the ninth floor but were still regularly disturbed by street noise and police sirens. The decor is loosely Egyptian in style and very dated. If you like contemporary design you'll hate it. The breakfasts were very poor. Watery orange juice, weak tastless tea poured from stained jugs, processed bread and pastries. Several of the waiters needed a trip to the dry cleaners and areas of the dining room were decidedly grubby. Generally poor housekeeping. To sum up; this hotel is OK if you get a good deal but don't expect it to be 5 star and don't pay more than £90 a night.

The hotel really does rate as one of the best I have ever stayed at. The pool and facilities were 1st class. Molton Brown as your everyday cosmetics/toiletries says it all really. The room was a good size, the bathroom was state of the art and the breakfast which had a £7.50 supplement to be upgraded to full english was 1st class. Totally recommend the weekend deals where you can pay from £80 per room per night. Only slight criticism would be getting a taxi back after 0200hrs!
If you get a chance, book 2 days and not the 1. Enjoy!
