We've enjoyed staying at the Grange Strathmore perhaps 5 times in the last 10 years or so. It is such a wonderful location for walking tours and for hopping on the underground. Coming from the US to visit friends, sightsee, and go to Wimbledon occasionally, we adore all things historic in London, and love the history of the Grange Strathmore. We appreciate the size and decor of the family rooms, although it would certainly be nice to have a mini fridge and AC. Each time we return we keep hoping these upgrades have been made, but sadly, they have not yet. Still, the beauty of the rooms, history, and location keep us coming back. This stay the mattresses seemed extremely firm, much too much so for our liking. We hadn't noticed that in past stays. One other small negative comment- the concierge during our stay seemed a bit inexperienced, suggesting an 8:00 AM taxi departure to Gatwick for an 11:00 AM international flight. We would never have made it, but thankfully we knew better and just got a taxi to Victoria Station and then the Gatwick Express from there- which was perfect timing. We will be back again, and maybe one of these years there will be AC and mini fridges!
The hotel does not have a sign outside so was nearly missed by our taxi driver. It is conveniently located for the underground (Gloucester Road) and has a selction of restaurants nearby as well as being near to the Albert Hall. The staff are very helpful and professional. There is only one small lift which on check out proved a bit of a problem as we had to wait for those going to breakfast and checking out on lower floors - we were on the fifth. We probably waited 10 minutes. We used the bar which was reasonably priced and had a lovely atmosphere but did not use the restaurant for breakfast at £20 approx per person but went out enabling us to have 2 meals for the price of one. We had a superior room which I thought was small but my fellow guests told me it was pretty okay for a London room. The room was functional and very clean, if in need of a little updating furniture wise. The bathroom was small but had clearly been modernised recently so no complaints there. Free WiFi and a generous selection of tea/coffee and more than 2 cartons of milk which was a pleasant surprise. I left an item behind which was found by housekeeping and when I contacted them they posted the item back to me and only charged me for the postage despite implying there would be an admin fee. I would certainly return
Friendly staff, clean rooms, various types of breakfast, great location, recommended for short and long stay. Metropolitan stations are close like some good restaurants and market stores ... Safe neighborhood...
This is my second visit to the Grange Strathmore, it's a lovely hotel with great service. The location was ideal for our trip, less than 10 min walk from Glouster Rd tube station and 10-15 mins to the Natural History Museum and the V &A. Our room was nicely decorated and clean my only issue was our tiny bathroom and shower. Great free wifi and really helpful friendly staff.
We booked 1 night while attending a concert. Arriving at the hotel slightly early hoping to leave our bags we were pleasantly surprised when the staff found us a room that was ready and allowed us to check in immediately. The room was newly refurbished and overlook the garden square. It was quiet at night with no interior hotel noise or outside noise allowing us to have the window open all night. The staff were very pleasant and helpful phoning us a car to get us to the station next day as my husband had ruptured his Achilles and couldn't walk. The common areas of the hotel are light and airy with a lovely feeling of faded grandeur. Will definitely use this hotel again .
The Grange Strathmore was really charming, they were able to accommodate 2 adults and 2 teens all in one room ( a double bed and two twin beds) and this is hard to find in London. The room was gorgeous, with high ceilings and beautiful curtains, they had tea/coffee in the room and it was close to the underground station ( Glouster Station). I'd skip the breakfast/ or the restaurant for that matter, it wasn't very good and the breakfast was too expensive, but with that exception, I would high recommend it.
The location is good as within walking distance of the tube, and great shops/cafes in Kensington. Although we booked an executive twin, we were upgraded to the family room which was spacious, clean, had very comfortable beds and provided everything you need. Breakfast was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful..I did not see anything 'tired' about this hotel as in other reviews unless they refer to a specific bedroom.Would stay again and hope, if not upgraded, that the executive twin would be as good.
Again I find myself at the grange Strathmore Hotel in Queens Gate Gardens, London. I've stated in 50 plus hotels in London in the last 10 years but I always enjoy the Grange Strathmore the most, it's location , the breakfast , the location are perfect.
Location, location, location! Brilliantly located in a quiet neighbourhood, next to the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, and the South Kensington tube station, the Grange Strathmore offered us excellent value for money for our 3-night family stay there at the end of May. The buffet breakfast was simple but filling and offered options of continental/full English. Restaurants were aplenty barely a 5-minute walk from the hotel. The South Kensington tube station was a 3-minute walk as was the Natural History Museum. The rooms could do with some refurbishing it seemed, but otherwise the stay was good and offered good value for money.
Second stay at this hotel, now we have found it we always try and book in here first when in this part of town, the location for us is second to none, close to the tube and Hyde Park, the best museums in London as well as the high end delights of Knightsbridge. Rooms are comfortable, a bit tight on space in the bathrooms and the lack of air con in summer is a small annoyance, however that said you are staying in a wonderful historic London building and for those of you visiting from foreign shores I should imagine you get a real feeling of British quaintness. The breakfast service was much improved, not chaotic like last visit and I think the fact you now self serve your own tea and coffee has vastly improved this aspect. One small issue with a obnoxious staff member but the matter is being addressed in a very satisfactory way. Will continue to recommend.
