As far as rooms go, nicely sized with space and lots of shelves.Tiny but clean bathroom (tiny bathrooms are hardly unusual in London, though), and bed, while it felt rather old, was perfecly comfortable....

I found The Ridgemount Hotel several years ago, and I have stayed there every year since. I lead a group of high school seniors to Europe each year, and this hotel is perfect for us. The Rees family provides a clean, safe, affordable stay for travelers on a budget, and did I mention that this gem is located in the...

This would have to be the best value Hotel in London. The homely feel was most welcome upon my return each evening considering I stay for 18 nights in total - 16 in a row. Mr and Mrs Rees and their son were most helpful when planning each day. I stayed in a single room with the facilities down the...

I spent 2 nights in the Ridgemont. The great aspects of this B&B are the staff and the breakfast! The staff were very friendly and super helpful esp regarding bus questions. The breakfast was a nice surprise as the other hotels we had stayed only offered a very limited continental breakfast. (toast and jam) We ended up with room 12...

I checked so many Bed & Breakfast sites it was ridiculous, I started going straight to the reviews and they were all pretty mediocre. Then I found the Ridgemount!

When browsing Tripadvisor for hotels in London in the lower price range one constantly comes across the same gripes again and again.. Poor upkeep, unsatisfactory hygienic conditions and rude and unhelpful staff. The Ridgemount Hotel is very much the exception. The upkeep of the hotel is excellent, the cleanliness immaculate and the staff go out of their way to be...
