“Staff leave much to be desired...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Stayed for two nights at the Maranton in November 2012 with my mum and 7 year-old daughter. The 'hotel' (B&B!) was cheap and close to Earls Court - the two redeeming features. Not being seasoned travellers we hoped that the staff could assist with some local advice on transport, etc - NO!!! Poor grasp of the English language and no local knowledge - when requested to book a taxi to the West End we were booked a mini-cab that took the mickey and charged £25 for the journey :( In short, lots of smiles and nice people but lacked the ability to communicate properly with a British family who would have appreciated some advice. NOT going back. (On the plus side they are pet friendly and our wee dog had a grand time!!!)

Good location just a few minutes away from Earls Court Underground. Easy to get here if you are coming from Heathrow. Quite street with several hotels, although near pubs, restaurants and shops. As all old hotels you will find no lift and steep stairs. Room was well sized and clean. Breakfast is quite simple, maybe better to have your breakfast at one of the nearby pubs.

Great location - 2 mins away from Earls Court Arena and plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby. Room was clean and a good size overlooking a small park. Bathroom small but clean and tidy.

Staff very friendly and helpful.

However on the downside was the breakfast. Limited choice of cereals. No fruit or yogurt. You are then given a plate with cheap ham, cheese triangle ( in foil), sliced processed cheese (still in it's wrapper), croissant and white toast. Not good.

I prob would stay there again but would def find somewhere else to go for breakfast!

Very near Earls Court station and very accessible to many places in London. The only problem I had with the place was the stairs. 7 flight of stairs to be exact. They should get a butler or something since walking up to the top floor with the luggage was no easy task. All in all; good, clean and affordable hotel. Good job guys!

Our room was located in the basement level below the check in area of the office. The window faced a wall below the sidewalk. Some people would not like a room below street level but we found it not to be a problem. The room was basic but comfortable. Even facing the street it was quite quiet even with the window open all night and day. Beds were fine and slept well. The wifi also worked in this room. The breakfast was very basic, corn flakes, Special K, processed cheese, ham slices and only white bread for toast. No fruit, eggs or yogurt. Good value in a prime location and would stay here again but would go else where for breakfast.

Room Tip: If you need wifi, ask for a room where it is available as it does not work in all rooms

It was an excellent value during the olympics and we could not have picked a more perfect location. It was down the street from the Earls Court subway station and 2 blocks from the entrance to Earls Court arena. There are plenty of restaurants and the hotel is on a very nice street. Also down the street from a Marks & Spencer which we frequented for sandwiches, yogurts, desserts. There is an empty refrigerator in the room which we stocked from M&S.

Maranton was like staying at a relative's house. We had room 10 which had 2 cute balconies overlooking a small courtyard. There is no elevator so you might want to request the lower rooms if that will be an issue. The only minor complaints we have are the crack on the toilet seat, every once in a while the toilet didn't flush fully, and the pillows could be a little fluffier. If you are looking for luxury and modern, this is not the place to be. But if you want value, great location, and the feel of visiting a relative in London we would recommend the Maranton. Overall a great stay!

Stayed July 5th for one night. Had room 8, a single. Carpet was stained and room, although clean, was "tired". I always stay in Earls court when on business in London, and would not stay here again. I would stay elsewhere (The Mayflower is a similar price and far superior)
