Best Western Swiss Cottage Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Coming to the end of a four night stay. Love the quirky nature of the hotel - a combination of a few grand houses. Staff were pleasant and efficient (although to be fair I didn't need to have much interaction with them). My room was comfortable, spacious and clean. My only one niggle (hence 4*s) was that the shower was temperamental. It's an old fashioned system attached to the bath taps. The water pressure and temperature varied and was not regulated - hence during a shower the water temp went from cool to extremely hot and the flow went from a dribble to powerful (often with a significant change in water temperature). Despite the above, I would definitely stay again.

A very well maintained hotel with British style. Ideally located, close to underground and bus stations. Helpful staff, spacious room and comfortable bedding. Kids friendly. One of the best place to stay in our experience.

Stayed for a couple of nights in a ground floor room. It was perfectly quiet with no street noise. The room was large with a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. Breakfast was decent although the cooked breakfast was served a little cold. Staff were warm and helpful. A very short walk to Swiss Cottage tube in zone 2 so very quick and easy to get into the centre. A couple of bars and cafes within walking distance but the real bonus for us was how quiet and safe the area was. Would definitely stay again.

Arrived here around 7.30, pleasant enough greeting. Room clean, except the piece of condom wrapper beside the bedside table leg. Sorry, but propper clean does matter! Went for a walk after a long journey on the train, couple of pints, then came home for a bite to eat. Bar shut, it was 11.15, sort of fair enough, but then it is a bloody hotel, even the Ibis keeps the bar open. Asked for room service, gruff lad on reception says not a chance. All I Cn say is breakfast d better be bloody good. Or it goes down t one out of five!

OK, Good location to Tube Staff nice. Stayed as part of a group. It was good price for London. Albeit slightly away from anything in an evening. BUT the tube is less than a 3 minute walk. The hotel reception staff are very efficient and friendly. The rooms [ I had a double] mine was OK. My colleagues had singles and could not swing a cat. The Bar service is Poor, you have to ring a bell and eventually a chap turns up, you order and then eventually it turns up. Then he is off again and repeat. I did wake up to a cockroach walking across the floor - Which is the very first time in any UK hotel I have had this.

I stayed here for one night recently on a business trip. This hotel is located in a gorgeous town house with appropriately Regency style decor in the public areas. My room was on the top floor and would have been difficult for those with accessibility requirements as the lift only goes to the third floor. Similarly, the breakfast room is down a very steep set of stairs on a sharp bend. I slept well although the room was a little stuffy this was easily adjusted by opening the window - I was facing the quieter side of the street. My room was large but the bathroom only had a shower and was very narrow. Breakfast was good. Provisions in the room were basic: Nescafé and a single biscuit, but I didn’t need anything else.

First class from beginning to end. The hotel was lovely and comfortable and the staff were so nice. I have stayed in many more expensive hotels which do not measure up to this one. I will defenately be staying again.

Excellent location, about a minute walk from Swiss Cottage Tube station. Close to bars, restaurants, shops and take aways. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious with ample wardrobe and cupboard space. The bar was nice, although the range of drinks available was rather limited. The price represented good value for money by London standards. I would certainly recommend this hotel and would be happy to stay here again.

Very good. Nice rooms and a decent reasonable breakfast. Proper three star property. However, check-in was unpleasant due to grumpy receptionist. He obviously doesn't like customers. If not for his very poor customer service, I probably would have given this property five stars.

We had a very enjoyable visit. The hotel is so well placed, only minutes on the tube from central London and Bond Street Our room was clean and beautifully presented, bathroom spacious with excellent shower. We opted for breakfast and weren't disappointed, lots of choice with friendly helpful staff. We make particular mention of the reception staff who couldn't be more helpful, especially Ian who catered for our every need. Thank you for a memorable stay.
