I booked a double en-suite studio at GH for two nights as I was attending the Frightfest film festival in Leceister Square. I had read both good and bad reviews about the accommodation so was unsure what to expect, however, I was pleasantly surprised.
The location is excellent, right on the doorstep of Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Shaftsbury Avenue. Amazing shops and restaurants all around and only a few minutes walk to the Covent Gardent tube station and about ten minutes to get to Leceister Square.
The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly. My room was on the 5th floor, accessible by two lifts or stairs. The room itself was very light and comprised a double bed, kitchenette with hob, microwave and fridge, table/chairs and an en-suite bathroom. The only critisism with the room was that there was no kettle - despite a host of other kitchen utensils, plates and pots etc. The room was quite hot and the windows only open a certain amount but the room was provided with an electric fan which was good.
The bed was fairly comfortable but the mattress was a bit lumpy - possible due to age, but the towels, sheets and bathroom were all very clean. The shower is very 'snug' but luckily I am slim so had no problems!
I booked the Continental breakfast option which is £5 and you have to walk to the Holborn House building about 5 mins away. The breakfast was ok, but on the second day I chose to eat in a local cafe and have a cooked breakfast instead.
Would I book again? Yes. Grovesnor House offers good value in a prime location. If you are expecting 5 star luxury and a trouser press then this is not for you, but if you are happy with a clean. safe and friendly place to stay at a fair price then I suggest you give them a go.
I would definately book
