Garden View Hotel2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Clean and big rooms for a very fair price. I have been there twice. The hotel is very close to Earl's Court Tube station, if one lands in Heathrow it's enough to take the Piccadilly for less than thirty minutes line without making any change.
Good Points In a quiet area and really close to the Tube. Bad Points TV didnt work, Lights needed new bulbs, beds were so close to the wardrobe you couldn't get into it, the shower curtain is too short so floods the bathroom, no hand towels available, or bath mat on the second night, doors don't close or lock, neither do windows, housekeeping don't actually do anything other than empty bins. Couldn't even phone down to reception to tell them all this as the telephone didnt work. Told reception of our issues, 3 different members of staff clearly couldn't care. Got given the name of the general manager to complain. Sent a letter, shockingly enough, haven't heard back from them either.
I booked my room at The Garden View Hotel at the very last minute and really loved the area. I felt safe and it was very quiet and peaceful, away from the main road. The room itself was tiny, literally only big enough for one person but that's all I needed. The shower was unusually high and the head isn't adjustable so it would have been nice to have a shower cap provided to save getting my hair wet. Either that or an adjustable head. The room was warm, I had a kettle, TV, tea and coffee. I had a hairdryer, a phone, cups for drinking, a big mirror and a lovely cosy bed. I paid a discount rate for this hotel and so to expect anything more would have been unrealistic and for the price I paid, I was very happy. My stay included breakfast, which is a choice of toast, juice, cereals and hot drinks. All in all, I would stay again!
The hotel was in a great location in Earls Court. So easy to get anywhere you needed. The rooms were clean, but super small...i'm guessing thats pretty normal for london though. I wouldnt bother with the breakfast as you can get better on earls court road for cheaper. As a non smoker, all the smokers at the front door was a bit yuk to walk through every day.
I visited London with my husband and two children and stayed here. We booked a family room - double bed and two single beds. It was clean, tv, coffee making facilities & toiletries in bathroom. Definitely not a 'garden view' we had a view of the back alley and bins. If I'm going to be picky which is me being truthful then the only thing couple of things I can pick up on was that the room was very hot and when the window was open it was extremely noisy due to what sounded like a squeaky bed!! The breakfast was also definitely not continental it was tea and toast with cheap cereal thrown in! We paid roughly £2.50 each & I'm sure a cup of coffee in the nearest cafe is more than that so can't really grumble. Staff were extremely helpful when asked how to get to places. Like the subject says - you get what you pay for. If you want luxury then you aren't getting it here but if you want clean, cheap accommodation then this is the place. For us it was a pit stop as we were out from am to pm and I would more than likely use this hotel again.
I do not know how this place has a business. This is the worst run company I have ever come across. I would never book here again and encourage everyone else NOT TO as well. If i could rate this in negative stars I would!!!!!!!!!!
Well the positives are that it's clean, low priced for London and it's neighborhood, and it's super central. SO tiny. The window saved me from claustrophobia. You trip over the bed. The wifi didn't work. That killed my planning. It was just ok. Noise travels a bit. Earplugs and open window were key! Admittedly, nice view.
The location is perfect, very quiet place, M station just 3 minutes walk, a lot of buses to the various directions, fresh air, internet is free and high quality, rooms are too small, but still is very good value.
Very handy for Earls Court tube station, rest very disappointing. Tiny bathroom, poor beds in our room not sure what rest of hotel like. Lift is a waste of space, room key very difficult to get to work. Breakfast was the worst I have ever had anywhere in the world, read the other reviews if you don't believe me. No place else would dare to call it a continental breakfast.
Excellent location in a quiet square a short walk from Earls Court underground station (use the Warwick Road exit). The hotel is spotlessly clean and well decorated, staff are friendly. I had a single room on the 2nd floor with a view of the gardens. The room was a bit on the small side with the tiniest bathroom I have ever encountered. One has to squeeze with difficulty between the toilet and the door when accessing the shower (best to remove the toilet paper from the holder so it doesn’t get wet when showering). I felt it was easier to keep the door open when using the toilet though this meant sitting side-saddle. Definitely designed for people a lot thinner than me! Breakfast is rather basic.
