Grange Strathmore4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
My partner and I stayed for a night on a recent trip to London and we were a little dubious after reading some of he reviews. I am glad we ignored them. We stayed in room 417 which was comfortably warm, bright, airy and provided plenty of space. We found all the staff to be helpful, polite and professional (and a big thank-you to Rachel for organising our bags to be held for as long as we needed after check out). All in all, my partner and I were very happy with our stay here and with it’s easy walking distance to the underground and many museums, we would certainly stay again on future visits to the nations capital
We stayed here for three nights in January. It's location it ideal as it is in walking distance to the tube station. Hotel was ideal for what we wanted..a base. Bathroom small but clean as was room. Friendly staff. Lovely area.
This place isn’t really amazing but equally, it isn’t terrible. I stayed for two nights for a conference and I found the room clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. It’s a great location with tube stations in walking distance and very close to the history and science museums. I wouldn’t recommend the continental breakfast but the English breakfast was nice. There are many places to go out and eat nearby. It’s a great place to use as a base to explore.
I stayed here because a nearby huge conference hotel was full. In my mind, this is a very typical London experience: an old, somewhat tired terrace building in a very fancy part of town (SW7). I got a room upgrade which was nice, but also meant I was in the basement below street level with virtually no daylight (admittedly, it was January...). The wall to wall carpets are plush but a little faded, which is always awkward in a hotel. Sleep quality was good, and the bathroom was functional (a big plus in London). The continental breakfast was rather poor - mine was included, but it is definitely not worth the 14 (or 20?) pounds they charge extra if you have booked room only. Staff were very friendly and the location is very convenient, with a 4 minute walk to the tube station. The price was reasonable by London standards, but I don't think I'd stay there again. Sorry.
We stayed at the Grange Strathmore Hotel for an overnight weekend stay. We picked it because of it’s close proximity to the Royal Albert Hall (as we had booked to see a show) & also the reasonable price. We stayed in a Superior Double (room 119) on a room only basis. The hotel is really convenient for Gloucester Road and many attractions such as The Natural History Museum, The V&A, Harrods and the Royal Albert Hall. It is in a quiet road and from the outside it looked traditional and pleasant. We realised fairly quickly after stepping through the door that the hotel was quite tired and in need of some investment. The carpets looked tired and furniture well-worn. Reception is tiny and in a cramped corridor and the service is slow but friendly. Our room was a reasonable size with traditional features but again the furniture was tired. The windows are single glazed and on a winters day you can feel the cold from them. The bed was firm and comfy but the duvet was far too small for the bed. The bathroom was ok but the access into the bath to have a shower needs to be rethought/reconfigured. The shower was hot and powerful though which was good. For me the little touches were missing that I would normally expect in a Superior room in a 4 star hotel such as bottled water, a safe and a mini bar. On the whole an ok stay but we probably wouldn’t stay again.
Unfortunately strongly disappointed… the hotel is supposed to be a 4 stars hotel, but the service is definitely not. The Victorian building is nice from the outside and the location is ideal in London, 2 min away from Gloucester Road; We stayed for 3 nights: the window was broken and did not close well (annoying when we’re in January). The cleaning was not done in the room after our first night and the good excuse from the reception was « there are a lot of check in today so we will do your room tomorrow »; the staff is not really polite and nice:minimum politeness policy Also the continental breakfast is way below of what you can expect for this category of hotel.
Just spent new year's night here as we were attending a party at the Natural History Museum so location was important. Like a lot of hotels in this are this hotel is a converted stately home and still has a lot of the original architecture and charm of such so I guess this may well appeal more to overseas visitors.According to the hotel it dates from around 1860-65 and was converted into a hotel around 1909. The reception is a tiny(and I mean tiny) desk tucked round the corner to the entrance next to the dinning room. Check in was quick, they take full payment from your card when you check in, was told this is a policy of Grange hotels? We had room 112 which is a room that accommodates 4 adults in one double and 2 singles. If you look at the high ceiling you can see how this room and the adjacent ones have been carved out of what was once a much larger room. The heating is supplemented by a oil heater which was very (dangerously) hot to touch and though there is a small sofa and desk, it is all a bit cramped in the room. The cupboard that stores the tea making facilities was broken and a struggle to open, the battery in the safe had failed so couldn't be used. The sofa and beds were soft and tired and carpets well past their best. The bathroom was clean and plenty of toiletries for us all, though the towels had to be stacked by the sink, with the tissue box on top of this pile as there wasn't any other room to put them. We had no issues with noise from road noise as its on a side street. Continental breakfast was included in the rate and was pretty basic, though they did give you hot toast. In all an average hotel that really needs modernising, though understandably difficult given the building, but if you need to be in the area the location is good.
Lovely spacious room, with great facilities, and very comfortable bed. Especially enjoyed the radiator heating, and the excellent tv. Loved the coffee percolator (plunger), and the way that when we had a couple of very early morning starts the staff arranged for us to have an early breakfast. Totally recommend this hotel.
This hotel was very cheap 4* £90 with breakfast Staff polite The room was tiny literally but it was clean . easy to catch buses from Hotel or taxis There was no air conditioning in the room - it did not say there was but would be nice .
Good hotel with clean rooms and friendly staff. We were a group of 20, who really enjoyed our stay. Close proximity to the London Underground Gloucester Road and supermarkets. Will definitely visit again soon.
