Grange Buckingham4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed for 8 days in a triple - very comfortable and spacious for our group of three - having access to fridge and microwave was essential. We were on the 3rd floor with windows that opened - allowing for cool breezes into the room at night. Daily breakfast was convenient and enough to keep us going for many hours! Every staff member we were in contact with was friendly and helpful. The area is quiet and safe at night with several pubs and restaurants nearby. Easy walk to tubes and adjacent neighborhoods. We easily traveled to all areas of London (walking, bus, tube, boat, GWR, DLR), including excursions to Greenwich and Windsor, using Grange Buckingham as our base.
Stayed in this hotel for the first time whilst on business in London, and would stay again. Check in was very quick and I was attended by a lovely receptionist, who explained everything I need to know. Room was large and very comfortable, see attached pictures, also good free WiFi. Breakfast was continental and very nice with lots on offer. Check out again was easy, will be back when in London.
I like grange hotels and I am a frequent user of their hotels. However, the Buckingham basement rooms are not good, not enough natural light, no windows you look out of and room 3 has a musty smell to it. On the positive, it was a very big room and bathroom, but take a room on the upper levels. The other issue is that room 3 is directly below the breakfast room and breakfast starts early with the inevitable chair and table scraping.
Stayed here for a couple of nights. It is a small boutique hotel in a quiet road but within walking distance of The British Museum, the West End and Oxford Street. We stayed in room 5 (in the basement). It was clean a well maintained and very large. Added bonus was a small kitchenette with large fridge, microwave, sink etc. The bathroom as well as a bath had a separate shower. The small breakfast room at the back of the property provided an English breakfast cooked to order. - something you don't get in larger hotels. i would highly recommend it.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay if we hadn't picked the record hottest weekend for years. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly. The breakfast was described as continental but we had cereal and fruit, followed by toast and marmalade. (I normally think of continental as just a croissant and coffee) The bed was big! The only down point was that there was no air conditioning, which would not normally have been a problem except for the exceptional weather. We have booked for a return visit early next year.(Hoping February will be a little cooler)
If you can avoid it please do. Upon arriving we were greeted with scaffolding at the front of the building it was barely recognisable, that's fine it happens. We checked into our room still very excited to be in London. Trying to find our room we had to go through 3 doors and 3 corridors to find the room. The bathroom ceiling was peeling and had rust down the walls, the bathroom was just poorly presented and dirty. The bedroom we received was nothing like the pictures. To top it all off we could hear movement from upstairs constantly, one night we had reception knock on our door poke there head into our room and tell us to keep it down. It was rude and also disrespectful I was there with my mother and in bed, especially as it took two men from reception as though we had done something wrong. Room # 203!
Stayed for 3 nights, and our room was huge. Very large comfy bed, with a wee kitchenette, which was a plus. All the facilities you need, and all the staff very helpful and friendly. A couple of things which need to be put right. Firstly their is no grab handle in the shower, and the shower mat needs replacing as very worn (Room 202). The chair by the dresser is wobbly and most uncomfortable when doing make up etc., No face flannels. Nice range of bathroom smellies ! Breakfast nice and fresh and lots of lovely fruit. Positioned well and short stroll to a few restaurants in walking distance round the corner. Would return definitely, to any of the GRANGE Hotels in the future.
I will be honest in that our first night was booked into a standard room. If travelling light and are physically smaller than most, this room is fine. However we asked for and received an upgrade to a deluxe room. What a difference! This is a lovely hotel for short stays in London. Loved its proximity to the Museum. It is close to the tube and has lots of pubs and restaurants in the area. Staff are very friendly too.
I only stayed for one night and it was excellent. The room has plenty of space and all the facilities that you need. It was quiet and pleasant. Wifi was fast. Excellent bed. Flexible lighting options. Breakfast was standard with good service.
Spent two nights at Grange Buckingham while on a business trip to London. The room was really large on London standards - the kitchenette and two beds would have accommodated a family of four. The location is also rather good with a short walk to Piccadilly Line (from Heathrow) and within walking distance of some key sights, shopping and train stations on the North side of London. That said, the room I got was an upgrade so I have no idea whether this is standard, the upgrade was made into "lower ground floor" (most of us know that as basement), and was missing some basic things like ironing and coffee making facilities. Honestly said, I was fine with the experience but overall Buckingham didn't make it above average except in the size of the room.
