A great location as it an easy walk to Earls Court Tube Station. I was staying with 3 other friends and 2 twin rooms were easy to get. We arrived at 10:00 and were able to drop off bags. The entire road is "Residents Permit Only". There is no "10 minute bag drop / registration" zone outside so if you...

My wife asked for an egg cup which was never supplied so we bought one and she used it every day of our stay. Not what we expected from a four star Best western hotel! Wifi very poor...

The rooms are clean and the amenities are good, even if they are a little bit too small. It was really well placed, close to Earl's Court underground station. there were lots of restaurants and pubs close to the hotel. Breakfast was a bit of a problem because there was no room enough to so many people and sometimes you...

It is not possible to enlarge the rooms but in the bathroom you can give better toiletries and if it possible to add non slip mat for shower. The juice on the breakfast could be 100% natural. I have no more tips.

Room very clean but very small. Bathroom in my caravan is bigger. One side of the double bed was against a wall. Although small was comfortable and the hotel clean and very central. Good breakfast and friendly staff. If your one for stopping in your hotel room you'd feel penned in. Other than that I can't fault it. Very close...

“hotel ok if all you want to do is sleep after a day out as there are no lounge or bar facilities and no evening meals offerred. Not suitable for disabled people as the lift is very small and the hotel itself is cramped with narrow corridors ; no room for a conventional housekeepers cleaning trolley!”

“If you are on a tight schedule the breakfast room is not large, so leave a little extra time in case you have to wait for a free table. We only had a ten minute wait though.”
