My wife and I checked into Harcourt House in October 2007 and stayed only one night. The room did not meet our expectations so we found another hotel for the remainder of our stay in London.
The room was very dingy/dirty and located behind the steps beside the door to go the basement where the breakfast was served. I tried to take a shower but nearly flooded the small bathroom as the shower did not drain. My wife did not even attempt to take a shower as she said she may have felt dirtier after taking a shower as nothing in the room was clean. The toilet was in a separate very small room which unfortunately doubled as a storage closet for cleaning supplies for the hotel.
Overall it was quite a miserable experience. We didn't even stay for breakfast the next morning as we really did not want to be there. I most certainly would not recommend Harcourt House to anyone and I'm quite disappointed my wife and I had to spend a night there on our honeymoon. Furthermore, I feel the B&B was misrepresented on the website even though it appeared to have somewhat decent reviews. Never-the-less, a photograph of our particular room I'm sure was never displayed as a selling point. Perhaps the rooms upstairs are better.
Without raising too much fuss, I simply told the concierge at the hotel the day we checked in we were checking out either immediately or the next morning and she preferred the next morning and unfortunately we agreed. Looking back, I should have left immediately as the hotel was clearly not as advertised.
