I visited London in mid-February, for two days of pure sightseeing with my four year old daughter, and stayed at The Elmwood for two nights (Tuesday and Wednesday). She'd been very curious about London and was very excited to see all of the wonderful things I'd told her about, so I booked the hotel knowing it was going to be simply a base while we explored London, and a place to lay our heads at night. As I would be spending quite a lot of money getting my daughter and I into the attractions, I chose the most reasonably priced hotel I could find.
The staff, both reception and kitchen, were at all times helpful, polite and friendly, and did everything they could to make our stay as trouble-free as possible. The room was just the right size for our needs; a double bed and plenty of cupboard and drawer space for our clothes. The bathroom was functional and the shower worked fine - my daughter, who normally prefers baths, loved the showers she had and was reluctant to come out. The breakfast was standard, but exactly as advertised - processed ham and cheese, boiled eggs, cereals, yoghurts, toast, juices, tea and coffee. This was fine for us as our only concern was having something in our stomachs before heading out for the day.
At night, I could hear general noise (doors closing, people getting in and out of bed) from the guests in the adjoining bedrooms, but this was negligible. Unfortunately, on our last night, a car full of young men parked right outside of the hotel at about 1am and blasted their music for about 45 minutes. But this was nothing to do with the hotel, and, frankly, if you stay in the centre of London and expect not to hear any noise at night, then you need to give your head a shake.
Overall, my stay was exactly what I had expected, for the price I paid. I will definitely be staying in this hotel again, when I visit London again later in the year.
