Very nice hotel, clean, great location - between Oxford Street in one and Regents Parks in other direction, friendly staf, rooms small but comfortable, all in all - no major complaints. We dont know about car parking because we didnt take a car.

I last stayed here for one night on Saturday 26th January and it was my third visit.

The twin room room was at the top of the stairs on the first floor and front facing, Immaculately clean, good room temperature. Downstairs reception staff have always been helpful and polite (one evening they lent an umbrella because it was pouring with rain).
I normally book on line and get a good service and I think the rate is good value for London.

Have also stayed in a front facing triple room on the lower ground floor near to the dining room and that room was fine too.

The location is the best thing. Easy distance on foot to Regents Park in one direction and for Oxford Street in the other direction.

There is a pleasant conservatory type sitting area with WI FI but I havent seen anyone sitting in there. I dont know about car parking because I didnt take a car.

I'm not sure about 4 star - I would say its more of a bed and breakfast/guest house than a hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel havent liked to commit to a specific room in advance beyond saying that they can offer a s...

Average hotel- definitely not 4 star in my eyes. I stayed in room 16 on the top floor, as another reviewer has mentioned, many flights of steep stairs and no lift. When leaving in the morning, I opened a fire door expecting a corridor on the other side, and almost fell down the flight of stairs immediately on the other side of the door. Were I a child, or pensioner, I could have had a nasty fall. Pay a bit more and use hotelsdirect to book a room in the Thistle around the corner. The differential was about £25 and the latter is a 'proper' 4 star hotel with lifts and a nice cooked breakfast, not the continental style breakfast at the St George. I won't be coming back.

Room Tip: go for a room on a lower floor, not at the top as there are no lifts!

Stayed early December with four other friends for a xmas shopping trip. We will be back...... the rooms were spotlessley clean, all staff were most helpful and hospitable, making coffees and teas, booking taxis, directing us for buses to Knightsbridge ( or else we may have been walking aimlessly to find the right bus stop).

So many many thanks all of you for making us so welcome, fingers x we will see you very soon

Room Tip: Whereas the higher floor is very quiet, it is a hard climb when you have alot of shopping,

If you feel like going on a fitness camp this is great. There are loads of stairs, quite steep and narrow, and no lift. We were not impressed! On top of this the place needs total redecoration. The carpets are threadbare and it could all do with a lick of paint. Our toilet did not flush so we used the shower to get water into the bowl. The bathroom was tiny enough to allow this! Virtually sat in the bath on the toilet. Also the shower had a massive leak so the bathroom flooded in about 10 seconds. We paid £85 for a double room, saturday night. I couldn't believe the sign by reception saying the usual rate was £185 and you have to pay extra for English breakfast.
We were kept waiting when we arrived and again on checkout because the girl was busy chatting with a collegue. We were then spoken to very rudely as if we were idiots because she didn't believe we paid when we arrived even though she had the reciept. Very unprofessional.
All in all we will not be coming back!

Room Tip: Ask for a low floor!

Dear Zara and Andy,

I have recently read your review and was very disappointed to find our that first of all, you have criticised the building, which is a town house, more over a class 2 listed building that cannot be modified or adjusted much to people's needs of space and extra comfort, like large bathroom and lift, all in line with keeping the heritage intact. This is something typical to the great majority of town house hotels in central London, which are converted buildings. What you get in return is the location. Secondly, no leak from the shower was reported to us, we keep everything in good working condition, flushing the toilet should not have been a problem either, different toilets work in different ways, you have probably never tried to push the lever all the way. As for the checkout, we were in the middle of staff handover, and turned our attention to yourselves straight away. Only queried the fact that you had paid, as it is not typical to pay at check-in and our system did not show it either. I admit the shortcoming was ours, but we were not rude, we merely wanted to be sure as many guests assume they had paid, without actually having had done so, only because we have their card details. We apologised there and then. As for your rate, you had a special low rate due to the Paralympics and due to London not being very busy. Our typical rates for standard rooms are usually £115.00 and above.
Hope this helps and we wish you further happy travels.
Regards,
Laura Gub
General Manager

The very central location compensates for the lack of facilities like elevator and air condition. Value for money B&B during the Olympics, helpful staff and clean. English breakfast should however not be subject to extra charges on a B&B in London.
