Quiet quality

Nice quiet location 10 minutes from Victoria Station, on the way to Westminster. Great beds. Comfortable, good-sized room. The only negatives I'd give this place are for "add-ons." The breakfast was quite pricey. But more annoying was the cost for wifi in my room. Who charges for wifi nowadays, when every pub in London provides it for free?

Disappointed

The room was extremely small for a double room. The shower head sprayed water all over the bathroom. The bathroom fan did not clear the steam away so it rapidly became like a sauna. In 4 days I had to ask for a new key three times. There was a charge fr internet connection which I had assumed would be included; and the price for breakfast was extortionate

Convenient, charming, good service.

The hotel was charming. It was an easy walk to Westminster abbey, Big Ben, the London Eye, and places to eat. Taxi ride was 5 minutes to Victoria station. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room had niceties like a tea cupboard with an assortment to teas, sugars, and creamers with real tea cups and saucers. The bathroom towels were large and fluffy and there were plenty of toiletries. The room was incredibly hot and we could not turn down the heat even when we asked for assistance, so we opened windows. There are no outlets next to or near the bed, which was a problem since we had medical equipment to hook up. The toilet seat in the bathroom was loose and the shower leaked onto the floor because the glass protector was not sealed properly. There were extra towels so it wasn't a problem with clean up. The food from room service was excellent, although when we ordered the first time they did not bring half of the order saying we only ordered one sandwich not two. They rectified the problem within 10 minutes. All of these things were minor issues. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others if you can go with the flow.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

20 min walk to attractions, but a bus at the corner of the street ran every 10 or 15 minutes or a taxi was relatively inexpensive to get back and forth.

Christmas in London

First let me say that the location is great for the price. Within walking distance between Trafalger Square and Victoria Station. The staff member maintaining our room was simply the greatest! Other staff very friendly and helpful. The room was small as expected but fine for the price. The mattress needs to be changed as it was very uncomfortable. One problem, the person above overflowed his tub causing a leak. We were given another room, larger, then had to move back to the other room with a very wet portion of the carpet. Perhaps I'm just an inexperienced traveler but I expected more for my inconvenience. I had to move my stuff out and then back in the morning with no help from the staff. Service a little lacking in that regard. Weighing the good and bad, I'd stay there again.

Definitely NOT a 4 star hotel

This was definitely NOT a 4 star hotel. Felt more like a 2 star hotel. The staff at the front desk hung up on my callers or did not put calls through. They also blocked me from making outgoing calls and took about an hour to fix the situation. And this was after I called several times to ask for help. One member of staff does several jobs e.g concierge was also waiter, IT person, house keeping etc. My package did not have wifi but for the type of service they have wifi should be free. The concierge team was great for the most part and very helpful when it came to booking trips and tours. The front desk staff didn't seem to understand their job. The staff were quite rude as we sat in the 24/7 lounge and seemed to want us to leave so they could sleep. However I liked the location of the hotel. Was very close to Victoria Station and several tourist sites. The bathroom was tiny and had half a shower glass so water from the shower would fall onto the floor while showering. Bedding was musty and didnt seem like it had been washed in a while. Definitely too expensive and I will not be returning to the Grange in the forseeable future

Delightful hotel

The Grange Rochester was nicely decorated, in excellent condition, conveniently located, with a very friendly and helpful staff. Although our room was not large, by London standards it was quite adequate. A bus line ran in front of the hotel, but it was also very easy to walk to many areas, including Buckingham Palace. The hotel is on the historic register, so they are not able to air condition, so I'm not sure what a summer visit would be like. We were there in October so there was no problem. Our only complaint was the price of breakfast in the hotel, if it's not included in your room rate, but there were many cafes nearby. I also was disappointed at the fee for wifi. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Awesome location!

The staff was friendly. There was food on site. I could walk to the Thames or to Victoria Station in five minutes. The room was small, but the view outside my window was Westminster Cathedral and the bathroom was huge!

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

If you're in London on the last Monday of the month, I almost died of laughter at the Comedy Shop (near Picadilly Circus and China Town, take the tube or a bus). The last Monday of the month is amateur night, but my stomach hurt so badly afterwards from laughing.

No A/C and the staff is not familiar with the area

The hotel is charming. It is in an old building with a lot of the older touches that make it very charming. However, there is no air conditioning. If you plan to stay in the summer you will likely regret it. The staff was not that familiar with the area the hotel is located and was not able to help with tourist activities. The room was clean and the hotel and a nice appearance. Be very careful about using the phone! A toll free call that lasted roughly 15 minutes cost roughly $130 (82 pounds sterling).
