Good value and location just 5 mins from tube and bus station. Rooms are quite small and not the comfiest of beds

Stayed here just for 1 night after being to an event in Golders Green so was really only used as a place to get our heads down after getting in before moving on. We had a room downstairs for three of us so it was like staying in a bedroom and not a room due to the complete lack of space. TV was small and crap. However we did have our own kitchen attached if we had wanted to use it. Breakfast was cereal, juice, tea/coffee and a small cooked breakfast which filled a hole. Included bacon though, bit surprising as this was a Jewish guest house. I'm not really a guest house person preferring hotels myself, but for a couple I think this could be acceptable, depends on what room you get and what mood the landlady is in. A friend with me has used the place a few times and said she can be a bit funny at times, but compared to the Golders Green Hotel across the road it's a palace!!!

We arrived late and went out immediately to eat so we did not have a good look at the room. My first impression was "Shabby - Nothing like the photo's!". Room was tiny, mismatched furniture. Double bed replaced by 2 singles as a result the besside light at the foot of one bed. When we returned we had a closer look - grubby walls, dust and hair everywhere, filthy light switches, dirth coffee mugs. Worse shock to come - our sheets were NOT clean! Rumpled and not just out of a dryer! Head indentations on the pillow and hairs and stains on the sheets!!!. The duvet cover was smelly and stained. I tried to rouse the landlady to no avail. Unfortunately the hotel across the road was full and considering that it was past midnight we made the best of it sleeping on the cleanest bits in our dirty clothes.
The shower, loo and basin were dirty too with toothpaste lips on the glass and the bathmat was slimy it was so grubby. Thank god for throughaway travel face cloths!!
Because we needed to leave our luggage there after check-out we kept quiet at breakfast. The smoke alarm sounded off constantly during breakfast too.
On the plus side our luggage was stored safely and we were given a key to keey to retrive our luggage on return. The trust the landlady showed in us was refreshing but not worth the filthy room!

July 8th, 2011 - Made a reservation for my father for when he visits next week. Got promised by the landlady that the room is reserved and that there's no need in a deposit, only to confirm on Friday 8th July if my father is arriving or not. Called on Friday as agreed, and was told very rudely that there are no rooms available. When I complained about the lack of service and false reservation - she replied that I can complain till tomorrow, but it won't change the fact that there's no room and she didn't care that I now have no accommodation for my father... or in her words: "they are your guests, not mine..." when asked what do I do now. Made a mistake by not trusting the previous reviews who warned about this hotel and the horrendous service! Lesson now learned... Do yourselves and others a favour and stay away - maybe if enough people vote with their feet, the landlady will learn her lesson that lying to your customers and treating them badly hurts.

Myself, my partner and a friend stayed at the guest house on 27th May and 28th May. We were greeted by the owner who we found to be pleasant, polite and very helpful providing as much information about the local area, where to go, how to get there etc.

Myself and my partner had been double booked into a room and therefore we were upgraded to a double, double room with a shower and bath which was a pleasant surprise!

The beds were hard and slightly uncomfortable but no bed is ever as good as your own! The guest house was lovely and tidy throughout with ample parking spaces outside (although you may get blocked in if it is at a busy time).

As mentioned already the website states that cards can be used for payment - this is untrue and cash must be the method of payment only, also contrary to their website the breakfast is not included in the price but there are lots of local cafes nearby (although Golder's Green is a majority Jewish area and a lot of the cafes serve Jewish food / specialities which might not be to everyone's taste). We ate at the Imperial Cafe and had a full English breakfast and a juice for £6 each.

The tube is just up the road from the guest house and ideal for commuting into London. Tip - if you are staying at this guest house (or anywhere in the tube area) and intend on making more than one journey on the tube you can purchase an Oyster Card for £3 (deposit which is refundable on the return of the card) which you then load up with money. I used about £11 of all weekend and travelled from Golder's Green to Waterloo and back as well as other journeys. It works out at half price what it would be to pay at each stop - and far more convenient!

Overall a nice place to stay in a nice area.

My partner & myself stayed at The Regal for one night to attend a party at the Castle Pub in Finchley.
Contrary to some previous reviews, we found the lady on the reception desk extreamly friendly & helpful.
Our room was absolutely great. Very homely. Comfortable bed, great shower (with plenty of pressure) & tea/coffee making facilities. Unlike some hotels that we have stayed in (we often travel to London for the weekend) "EVERYTHING WORKED" ie: charged batteries in the TV remote, light bulbs lit, clean bathroom & bedroom.
As for the breakfast, well what can I say FANTASTIC. Fresh orange juice, large pot of tea, lot's of toast & a lovely "full english".
The breakfast room was very homely & welcoming with very attractively set out tables.
We will definately be returning. Fantastic all round package.
WELL DONE Regal Hotel.
From the "Rod Stewart" fan. Hope to see you soon.

We have now stayed at this B&B five times. The first time as an emergency when the originally booked B&B was closed when we arrived in London.
This B&B is walking distance from Golders Green underground and bus station, making it very convenient for travel into central London, and not far from the North Circular.
