Well run hotel in an ideal location, two minutes walk from the tube station and Clapham Common. It was a great base for my travels around London. Clean and comfortable rooms with all the facilities you'd need. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of choice nearby for cafés, shops and bars. I wish they provided breakfast but everything else...

We reserved a room with booking.com early in the year as I bought my partner a musical ticket. We needed somewhere convenient for driving in to London, tubing in to central London and this was one of the cheaper options. We used JustPark, and the hotel was a 1 minute walk from where we parked the car. It was also...

I arrived late and I was greeted warmly, given a choice of the available rooms, and felt very well taken care of. The room was clean and well supplied with biscuits, ear plugs and free wifi. Great hotel and very reasonable. It is close to the tube and their is a lovely cafe opposite for breakfast.

Nice reasonably priced place. Not high end but comfortable and clean and situated in quite pretty grounds too. Felt safe and the staff made us feel welcome. This place could not make visiting the city any easier for getting around London if it tried. We were a 2 minute walk away from Clapham South tube station and we had no...

If your looking for a cheap room for a weekend away this is a good option. There was 3 of us altogether, We stayed in a room for 3 for a 1 night stay. It was very reasonable in price and the rooms & bathrooms we're very clean. A perfect location for anyone visiting friends in Clapham or central London.

Stayed here at the weekend with my son as we were going to the Rugby at Twickenham and I have another son who live 10 mins from the Hotel. The room (17) was a twin. It had TV, Ensuite Shower/toilet and 2X 3 foot single beds. The room was clean (as was the Shower etc). Not the most comfortable beds,...

Good location, clean and tidy hotel and best ever welcome by the guy on reception. Very warm, friendly and funny, you are a star sir 👍👍. The rooms on the front do get some traffic noise, so may be better to avoid if possible.

Positioned conveniently just outside of the underground makes it very easy to get to using the Northern Line. I went here with my gf and had no problems finding the place or needing to make any sort of rail adjustments to get to. It's situated perfectly away from the noise of central. Greeted at the door and the customer service...

I called the hotel to make a last-minute booking, clearly stating it was for my colleague. The guy on reception was really helpful and even agreed for reception to stay open later for check-in. My booking confirmation came through which I then forwarded to my colleague. This is where the excellent customer services ended. My colleague was called at 9pm...
