Hotel is friendly and has reasonable facilities in the restaurant and bar. Stayed on the 5th floor - room was tiny and a bit cramped for luggage/clothes space, as is the very small lift. Location is excellent, close to many things including transport and museums. Good value for money in a great location
What a simply wonderful experience from start to finish. My partner and I went for our anniversary and went to see The Beach Boys at The Royal Albert hall ( 10 min walk) . On arrival the door was opened for us by a gentleman with a natural genuine smile so welcoming. We then went to reception again very happy friendly ladies welcomed us, and who later because it was raining made sure we had an umbrella. I had mentioned it was our anniversary when booking but was taken aback when we went to our room. A special touch had been made and 10 minutes later cakes were delivered from the staff. The room was beautiful all the home comforts you need. The building especially the staircase is breathtaking. the hotel has a lot of history and the staff will print it off for you. the food and bar prices were surprisingly inexpensive for such a grand hotel. I will admit I will usually find a fault in a stay away but I cannot fault this hotel . The staff are personable we had a Lovely chat to a gent that was holding the evening shift he had so much knowledge of the history .Overall we felt very spoilt Thank You Strathmore Grange for making our stay so perfect
Great location and very quiet, and yet close to 2 tube stations (3 lines!) and many restaurants. Breakfast is delicious, even the continental one. Staff most polite and helpful. Bathroom well provided with luxury goods.
Based just of Crompton Road, near to Gloucester Road Tube Station, around the corner from the Natural History, Science and V&A Museums. A 20 mins walk from Kensington Palace and Gardens, Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park. Historically interesting hotel due to being the Queen's grandfather's house. Room was small but had good blackout curtains and heating, good TV, bathroom and supplies of tea/coffee. Only issue was the neighbours were very noisy.
Stayed here with my mom for a few days. The twin room was cozy (small), but I feel like that is to be expected in London. The staff was very friendly and were quite helpful with anything we needed. The neighborhood was really the best part--so many restaurants and tea/coffee shops were right within walking distance. The tube station was right around the corner. Kensington Palace was right up the road. So much stuff within walking distance! I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in London.
Please beware: the so called superior rooms are in fact standard rooms as the helpfull hotel staff told us. After changing two unacceptable rooms though we were offered an upgrade in another hotel in London. It was o.k. although the "view" was the wall of another hotel building.
If you are heading towards a west London Georgian building, housing a hotel of some repute and some provenance (Once owned by the Earl of Strathmore, the Queen Mothers father), you have very high expectations. And indeed, once we had sighted the delightful exterior, with its rising stone steps and black iron railings, we felt sure that we were about to enter feather cosseted luxury. We were just a little wrong. We were here on a ‘B&B’ basis, dining elsewhere prior to a concert at the RAH, so can’t cover a complete stay. Once we'd crammed into a tiny lift, we were very politely shown to our room which and this began what was the beginning of a mind shift in expectations. The room was tiny and a little shabby and definitely not chic. It was taller than it was wide, the furniture a little distressed, (simply by being in the room would be enough to do that) and the whole impression was one of darkness, dark curtains, dark furniture, dark carpet, you get the idea. Servant’s quarters I thought. We were however, once we disclosed our unhappiness, moved without fuss and all very graciously done. The staff here are excellent, no request is too much. The alternative room had one drawback, it was below pavement level, but it was large and fairly light, king size bed and a sofa and a very nicely appointed bathroom. It was not the sumptuous surroundings that I’d expected, but we were now satisfied. The breakfast room was large, not too noisy and does have an elegant feel to it. However it was also a rather disappointing help yourself buffet. I was really looking forward to be waited on. The food was good, a perfect breakfast sausage for me and even a well fried egg, although it was one of about twenty in the chafing dish! There was a lovely bar area, open for morning paper reading that has a nice 'clubby' feel to it and very comfortable. All in all, a pleasant stay, a little marred by perhaps some over expectations on my part, but now I know what to expect, I'd stay again, a very welcoming hotel with really nice staff.
Stayed here for one night after watching The Who at the Albert Hall. Decent sized room, clean and comfortable. Breakfast nice enough, bar stays open late and is reasonably priced, location is excellent.
So it's London and everything costs a fortune. This is a nice, mid-range hotel in a nice part of London. The staff are very friendly and the reception,although tiny, works well. But for a average London hotel cost the room I was allocated was tiny. I was way up in the clouds (roof space) and the room was literally the size of the bed plus about a foot all around. Very small bathroom too. Breakfast was good however, Suggest you check on room size before booking or on checking in.
Stayed for 2 nights, we were fortunate to be upgraded on arrival which was a lovely surprise. Room was modern, very clean, only thing was the TV was strangely positioned on the wall so you couldn't lie in bed and watch TV, but that's just a small thing. Staff very friendly. Continental Breakfast was included which had plenty of choice and we were offered to upgrade to a full breakfast if we wanted to. On our second night we ordered room service (too tired to go out again after pounding the streets of London), which was really tasty. Really good location to Gloucester Road tube station and only a 10 minute walk to The Natural History Museum, Science Museum and V&A museum. Would definitely recommend, and wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel again on our next trip to London.
