We had two rooms here as we were attending an event at the Royal Albert Hall which is within walking distance (about 10 minutes) or a short taxi ride if required. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat there although they do bar food and room service at any time. There are loads of places to eat within 5 minutes of almost every description. towards Gloucester Road tube which is also very near. The lounge bar is comfortable and was open late although after the bar person had left at 11.00 the service was a by the Night Porter (I assume) who was friendly but kept disappearing even though the bar was busy and so the service became a bit more haphazard. Rooms were fine with good bathrooms - we got upgraded to better rooms - we are GH rewards members although I don't know if that was the reason. The lift is tiny - 4 people is a squeeze or two with luggage - which as were on an upper floor meant some waiting. Continental breakfast was OK. You can pay extra for cooked. We didn't. Parking outside the hotel is OK from 12.30 pm on Saturday until 8.30 am on Monday but at other times it is resident permit holders only. Around the corner there are parking meters for outside of those times but they have a time limit (about £5 an hour). The other option is the Holiday Inn car park which is about 10 minutes walk and around £32 a day. We also visited the V & A and Natural History Museums the day after we stayed. Again about 10 minutes walk. he hotel were happy to keep luggage secure once we'd checked out to collect later. I would stay here again for it's location if going to an event.
I stayed here alone for one night on business. The hotel is in a nice location and on a quiet residential street. However, there were a few issues. My room key didn't work on arrival so had to get it re-programmed. The room was very warm as the hotel doesn't have air conditioning. The TV wasn't working and when I called reception they said none of the TVs in the hotel were working (but they hadn't told me this 10 mins earlier when I checked in). The drain in the shower was blocked and immediately filled up when having a shower. After a 5 minute shower the water level was up to my shins. The bed was very firm, so much so that it would have been painful to sleep on my side. There were also steps everywhere so not wheelchair friendly, or helpful when you have a heavy suitcase on wheels (although there's a small lift, there was a step to get up to my room door and a step down into the room). The room was very small and had for 2 people (twin room) it would have been tight if staying for more than 1 night. The breakfast was very average and I was very glad I wasn't paying for it (work paid) as it was £24 for full English and £18 for continental.
Stayed here for just one night in April and enjoyed the stay. The location is great, very convenient for the tube and London attractions. The street is quiet and has a residential feel so was quiet at night. The twin room we had was small (which could have been an issue on a longer stay) but for 1 night it was fine. Good bathroom with toiletries included.Check in was quick and the staff were nice. Overall would stay again for short visits.
Hotel was everything we wanted. Good location close to Royal Albert Hall, a few minutes walk from Gloucester Road tube station, lots of restaurants nearby. Hotel was very traditional, lovely furnishings, good bathroom, comfy beds, friendly staff. Will return again
Lovely room, great value. Quality bedding, sumptuous curtains, beautiful high ceiling. Great shower and nice to have a kettle. Great location. A little noisy from the Cromwell Rd (1st floor room) but otherwise perfect. Will definitely stay again - if I can get in!!
This is a townhouse hotel so space is a premium. our first "superior double" was on 5th floor and really small. Not very comfy and what furniture there was was a bit tatty. they did upgrade us to a 3rd floor family room which was much better but the bathroom was still very small. They also upgraded us to English breakfast which was good. Have to say the continental breakfast looked very meagre with little choice. Staff were great and a super location for hotels but wouldn't stay again
The Grange group have a few hotels like this one. Old, grand, properties which have been re-purposed. As such, you don't have the shiny interior of a purpose built hotel but there are some interesting original features. Check-in was smooth with a pleasant welcome. If you are handy with using a touchscreen device you will be able to check-in more quickly than if you struggle with this sort of tech. Room was clean and the small shower worked OK. However, some of the fabric of the interior could do with a refresh. Some simple maintenance would make a big difference. e.g. the carpet in the small lift was badly worn & should be replaced. The rather dated TV equipment could do with fresh remote controls to replace the grubby ones with the worn away buttons. Badly worn/damaged bedside tables could easily be swapped out. I knew what to expect, so wasn't overly disappointed. Plenty of of local shops/eateries within a few mins walk from the hotel. Handy for the tube too. Doubtless, i'll make a return to a Grange Hotel before too long.
Great location near (walking distance) Glousester Road Tube Station, Hyde Park and National History museum. Proper hotel for families with kind staff. Logical price for South Kensington and London generally.
Found this hotel when all others were booked solid due to snow and bad weather affecting Northern Airports. Got a superior double for the cost of a single but inflates still due to the situation. Also booked through hotel reservations at terminal 5 heathrow. Room on Ground Floor looked as though it had been recently updated. Heating great and A/C not used but available. Bed extremely comfortable and good size. Desk area small but adequate. Tea/Coffee making facilities good and lighting very good. Bathroom small with shower only no bath. Very clean throughout. Dining Room/Restaurant very spacious and regal. Reception level looking tired and if honest smelling a little damp, new carpets and a lick of paint would lighten and solve the problems. Staff excellent and very good throughout, very well presented and extremely helpful. Food is excellent and portions are massive. I am a big lad but struggled with a starter and a main course. Breakfast is very good, ample amount of full breakfast and a very good display and offering of continental. Low fat natural yogurt is delicious.
My daughter and I stayed here for four nights for a long weekend getaway and found the hotel was very well situated so that we could get around to different parts of London easily. The short walk to the Gloucester Rd tube station gave us quick and easy access to transportation but in the area we also found some lovely restaurants and pubs. There are museums and parks within easy walk distance as well. Our room was well appointed, the bathroom was a good size and had all the amenities. The staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly and we enjoyed being able to sit in the quiet lounge for a drink or cup of tea. The only thing I would change is the size of the room which for a twin room was very small and made it a challenge for two people to move around at the same time.
