Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The Clermont London, Charing Cross is a wonderful hotel for a family traveling. The breakfast and staff in the restaurant were great. We traveled with a 9 year old with food allergies and the kitchen was incredible accommodating us every morning. I can’t say enough great things about the Ckermont.

My mom and I had a pleasant experience. The room we had was properly cleaned daily which checked a big box for me. The staff were ready to assist with any questions we had regarding travel. The hotel is really in a central location which makes it easy to get around. Alex in the bar served me on two consecutive nights and he went out his way to make me a special “smoky” cocktail. I would return to this hotel again!

Lovely food and excellent service. Nice wine list and cool setting with views over the Strand. Friendly staff too - offered me the wider menu since the voucher set menu was very limited for vegetarians. Plant burger was delicious with lots of chips too

Very friendly staff on the desk at check in. Tried the restaurant out and food was excellent, service very efficient and friendly. (Keerthi) Superb location for the west end and the National gallery. Very near the underground (Embankment).

A friend from London recommended this hotel. It was our first trip to London so we knew very little about the area. As it turned out, this hotel was perfect for us. The location is awesome. The staff was extremely helpful. I would definitely go back.

Swindon, United Kingdom4 contributions4 helpful votes
This was our 2nd stay, which we booked via a 3rd party, as it was considerably cheaper, especially as it included breakfast. I contacted the hotel via email & requested a room close to reception, as our 1st stay was a bit of a hike & we were in 305 which was perfect! I really cannot fault this hotel, amazing staff, really comfy beds, beautiful building, great breakfast, oh & the location. Bus stop right outside, number 9 took you Knightsbridge literally 2 mins walk to Harrods. Charing Cross tube also steps away with direct tube to Paddington. Trafalgar Square & Covent garden a few minutes walk too. Will definitely be back if we can find a great deal again.

Our second time here and still a great place to stay. Nice room, very friendly and attentive staff, excellent restaurant, and the location can't be beat--right next to the Charing Cross train station and tube; a 3-minute walk from the Embankment tube station and pier (where you can catch boat rides up and down the Thames); a stone's throw from Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, and Whitehall; and within easy walking distance of Covent Garden and West End theaters. Moderately expensive but for what you get, well worth it. A special shout out to concierge Ron, who came up with an excellent dinner recommendation at a nearby pub, and to concierge Andrea for finding for us, and then booking, a nearby restaurant to have what turned out to be a fabulous Valentine's Day dinner. What a great way to end our trip. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in London.
