Henley House Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Henley House, which is very conveniently located on a quiet street near the Earl's Court Tube Station, has refurbished its guest rooms since I last stayed here a few years ago. Our quiet room was well-lit and very comfortable for two people, with a nicely modernized bathroom, a mini-fridge, a safe, very quiet air conditioning, and a view over the back garden. The sunny, glassed-in breakfast room also has been updated, but it continues to offer good continental breakfast selections. My only caveat is that, while the hotel does have a lift, many rooms are up or down a flight of stairs from where the lift stops so carrying luggage may be required. Apart from this slight inconvenience, the Henley House is a great value in a great location with a friendly, helpful staff. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We have stayed at this hotel when in London for the past 3 years. Clean comfortable room.My only critisism is regarding clothes drawers. Should be more and another ledge in the bathroom for toilettries would be handy.Great continental breakfast. Hotel has a lift and wonderful staff. 5 mins walk from Earls Court station and back rooms in hotel very quiet. Will definitely stay there every time we are in London

I really enjoyed my 10 day stay at Henley House Hotel. From a solo traveller's perspective I felt incredibly safe staying here. The hotel is about a 3 minute walk from Earl's Court tube (very easy connection to Heathrow) and is situated on a quiet street right off Earl's Court Rd. There were heaps of dining options in the area (including a fabulous M&S Foodhall down the street) and other conveniences such as banks, chemists, etc. nearby The hotel itself is a lovely Victorian-style building and the rooms look to have undergone a recent modern renovation (the photos on the hotel's website are very accurate/true to life). My room was on the top floor (the lift takes you almost to the top, then there are a dozen or so stairs to the top) and was very clean and quiet. Even for just one person, the room is quite small and the bathroom is incredibly tight but the space has been very well thought out. If you're the sort of person that just uses the room as a place to sleep and don't need a whole heap of space then it's absolutely fine. I really enjoyed being able to make a cuppa in the room after a long day of sightseeing and looking out into the private garden across the street. The breakfast selection was ample without being extravagant (yoghurt, pastries, fruit, cereal, tea, coffee, juice) and the staff were very helpful (I had an issue with the fridge in my room which they sorted out promptly and were happy to bring extra blankets upon request) Pros: helpful staff, superb location (very much has a neighbourhood feel), safe, close to transport and restaurants/cafes/shops, clean and welcoming hotel Cons: rooms are small, water pressure in the shower isn't great I would happily stay at Henley House Hotel if/when I'm next in London!

Stayed here for a couple of nights with a friend. Modern interior, comfy beds, great breakfast ( lits of choice and friendly service) and lovely quiet street despite being a couple of minutes from Earls court underground station. Would definitely like to return. Good value too.

The main minuses were that my room in the top (4th) floor was tiny, and I had to haul my heavy suitcase up 17 steps. That said, the room has been recently modernised and was almost Japanese in its inventiveness in making use of what little space was available. The continental breakfast was very good and served in a nice space. Staff were friendly.

Hotel is brilliantly located for visits to Wimbledon and to the City (3 mins walk to Earls Court tube station with District line going directly to Wimbledon and to Victoria, Embarkment etc.). Room relative small, but modern. Bathroom tiny. Staff at reception very friendly and supportive. Breakfast (Continental) is included but quite basic.

We stayed here for four days prior to a cruise out of Southampton. Very good service. The staff is so helpful and obliging. 🇬🇧our continental breakfast was included and it was in a lovely area like a glass greenhouse. Our room was modern and very clean. We were right across from an enclosed park. There is nothing negative to say. It is near restaurants and Mark & Spensers so it was easy to pick up salad and fruit and whatever we needed. Thank you to the staff and a wonderful stay from well travelled 🇨🇦.

Highlights: This hotel is so close to Earls Court tube that it's a perfect place from where to explore London. Hotel is very clean and smart and a pleasure to stay in. Low points: Continental breakfast only, no full English. Water pressure in the shower is poor but does the job.

This was a really nice hotel in a quiet part of London, close to Earl's Court. The bedroom was fantastic. Spacious for the price, and we loved the design and decor. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was nice too. Breakfast wasn't great, that was its only letdown really – so on our second morning, we ventured out for food. Overall, excellent and we would use this hotel again!

Booked for special occasion and managed to get a room with a small balcony facing Barkston Gardens. Lovely modern clean room, comfortable beds. Friendly staff and ample continental-style breakfast. Quiet area with easy access to local eateries as well as easy bus and tube access to central London. Would definitely book again.
