I stayed in this hotel whilst passing through London to see the Hockney exhibition at the Tate, although finding reception was a trifle confusing (hint: turn right not left) the staff were pleasant, we had couple of credit card machine issues but overall it was efficient, I had a room with a large bed and large mirror, I don't expect...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 December 2016

We chose the GNH based on the need to be close to LKX but could highly recommend it even if you don't, it's a super hotel. The greeting was warm & personal & the hotel quick to upgrade SPG members where possible. Our room was delightful, not huge but beautifully fitted out with luxury bedding & high end furnishings. We...

This was my second and final stay at this property. I left disappointed, praying for just a few simple things to make my stay comfortable and rewarding. More space in the tiny, cramped "upgraded" room. My24 early arrival honored, not cancelled at the last minute. Bottled water. An iron and board that worked. Tea/coffee facilities in the room, not the...

Thank you for your feedback and so sorry for your disappointment. I am sorry that you did not enjoy our complimentary Pantries. They usually prove very popular with guests, but I can completely understand the desire not to leave your room. It is for this reason that every room comes with a Nespresso coffee machine. Regarding the US socket, while...

Well the first thing to say is that that externally this is a gorgeous-looking hotel. In an area of London that is being restored and enhanced to be a major focus for living, dining and entertainment the GNH, as they like to call it, is definitely a stand-out. Inside there is high quality in the design and all the internal...

The reception is quite a chaotic area as it is quite small and it does not take many people to be in there to make it uncomfortable. The receptionists were friendly. I was taken to the room (by what I presume was the porter) and was shown everything. This really is not necessary - maybe you should ask if you...

Just returned from spending a night at the Great Northern Hotel. We booked this, primarily, as it was handy for a concert we were going to. We contacted the hotel to advise them we were on an early flight to London and they told us that they could either look after our bag or, if our room was ready we...

Hotel was expensive but full of character. You stay in rooms which are not particularly big, have only enough room for a bed and a sofa tucked in the corner. There are no tea or coffee making facilities inside the room but there is a pantry with loads of sweet treats and tea and coffee making facilities there. The bathroom...

We stayed in the smallest room and it was absolutely wonderful. Lovely little touches make it feel luxurious and the staff were so helpful and friendly. On each floor there was a pantry which had cakes and sweets in it. So convenient for kings cross and St Pancras. Just great, this is now our go to hotel in london.

This is a tough hotel to review because it checks a few boxes but falls drastically short on others. Located directly between Kings Cross and St. Pancras, with the taxi rank on its doorstep this modern hotel has a small check-in area (no good communal space), a large ground floor bar, and a small bar and restaurant on the 1st...
