A small town house hotel quietly situated down a side road off the main Earls Court Road. Very pleasant and welcoming staff. The single room I had was small with an on-suite but adequate and clean. Certainly for a good value overnight stay on business it was fine. Good access to plenty of places to eat around Earls Court.

Stayed ay Henley House, with my son, for one night 2nd December 2011. Was a bit worried having spent a couple of nights in the Earls Court area at about the same time last year, that hotel was appalling. I need not have worried, this hotel, (Henley House) was the complete opposite to my experience last year. I wanted to be near to the Earls Court Arena to attend the Military Tattoo so was delighted to walk out of Earls Court station just across the road into Barkston Gardens and to the hotel. Received a most warm welcome at Reception and was shown to a very pleasant, clean and comfortable twin room. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast next morning was continental with an option for a cooked breakfast, I didn't have a cooked breakfast myself but what I saw served looked ok. The hotel is ideal for rail and underground links to all parts of sightseeing London and would be ideal for longer stays. I will most certainly use this hotel as a base for future visits to London

Room Tip: Mine was a basement room, I did not see any other rooms but based on my experience I would think tha...

I needed a room close to Earls Court as attending for a show. Read reviews on TripAdvisor and Booking.com which included descriptions such as "boutique hotel". On arrival, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful - and this was true of both days of my stay. But I couldnt have been more disappointed from there on in.

In common with the previous reviewer PeterOakTree who reviewed on 30th October, I also stayed in Room 34.

The room does have a double bed but there is not much room around it. The bathroom is small and suffered from a damaged sink (a fairly substantial spider web crack), a shower tray with chipped porcelain, towels with holes in and a sink so small that you couldn't actually fill the kettle in the room from it rendering the in-room tray completely useless.

Equally, there is a damp and mouldy patch above the window and a patch of peeling paper in the corner above the bed.

Although the staff did keep the room clean, the decor is dated and goves the room a dark worn feeling.

Finally, a small menu for breakfast offers either "beans and bacon" or eggs and toast as cooked options at £4.95. Having asked for scrambled egg on toast, I was provided with a single egg scrambled and placed straight onto a side plate. Otherwise, croissants, coffee, juice and cereal is available on a self-service basis.

Overall, the reception staff made the stay pleasant and the location is very convenient for Earls Court and locale. Free wifi in the room and faiirly competitive pricing just about made the stay bearable but this is a very disappointing hotel.

Really enjoyed my stay at Henley house booked a twin room which was large. Rooms could do with an update but was very clean and a comfortable place to stay. Perfect location the tube is 2 mins away and lots of nice places to eat again 2 mins from the hotel. Breakfast was basic but pleasant would really recommend staying here cheap and cheerful!!

We booked a twin room for 3 nights, with a request to overlook Barkston Gardens. Our room, although well worn, was nice and clean. It was tidy, with a flat-screen TV, and had a sweet little balcony facing the gardens. The reception was manned, from 07:45 to 11:30, with the front-door always locked. We were given a front-door key, but the receptionist generally buzzed us in - I had to sneak up to the door in order to open it myself, so as not to disturb them too much! The girls at reception were at all times pleasent and helpful. On a note of caution however, be prepared to put up with a certain amount of noise from neighbouring rooms, IF you have the misfortune to have inconsiderate people next door, as we did. Breakfast very basic. Lift small but worked.
