“Great venue for a wedding reception”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

My now wife and I held our wedding reception upstairs in the Alma in October 2013. It was a lovely day. We had over 50 guests attend with some staying the night. The food was fantastic - would suggest you ask for the Strawberry sponge cake for dessert. The service was brilliant. Ann & Colin did a fantastic job on the night. Colin in particular kept everyone laughing all night. If you're looking for an intimate setting, great food and service and an easily accessible location then the Alma is the place to hold your wedding reception!

Stayed for the weekend recently - and the service, rooms and food were first rate. Location was excellent, just outside the train station at wandsworth town and there was no noise at all. Perfect weekend.

This was a spur of the moment idea and we loved every minute of it. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very special and spoiled. The Manager, Sean, was first rate and could not have done more to make us want to repeat the whole experience. Our bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever enjoyed.

Room Tip: We were in room 7 which would have been even more wonderful in warmer weather as it has its own gard...

The Alma Hotel is a very comfortable and friendly small hotel. The room was large, comfortable and very clean, and the staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. Although this Hotel is attached to a pub, we did not hear a thing in our first floor room on a Friday night. The train station connects to the tube system to provide a 20 minute journey to London's West End. We feel we have found our hotel to stay for all future trips to London!

This boutique hotel is convenient for Wandsworth train station, it is just across the road. Our room was very spacious with a walk in shower. The staff were very pleasant, efficient and friendly. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very nice and pretty busy. We also had breakfast during our stay and there was a very good choice. If you prefer your eggs soft, ensure you request this ...... Overall a very convenient and comfortable hotel.

This Victorian boutique hotel in a courtyard environment opposite Wandsworth Town Station has great atmosphere and comfortable, well-appointed rooms. Ours had a walk-in shower and a brilliantly comfortable bed. The bar and restaurant retaini much of the hotel's origianl character. The bar, with its oblong central counter, pillars and panelling is still a Victorian/Edwardian saloon.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful,

I paid £150.00 for two including breakfast (Eggs Benedict... Mmmm....) which is very good value for London, especially in an hotel as pleasant and welcoming as this.

We decided to have our staff Christmas meal at The Alma. We had been to The Alma a few years ago and it was nice but this time it was excellent! The staff were fantastic, from the initial booking of our table to the actual evening itself. On behalf of our group of 16 I would like to thank Sean and his team for looking after us so well. A special thank you to the chefs - everyone in the group said the food was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented and very hot! So much so that we will be returning in the next few months for another group meal out. Once again. thank you all so much for making our evening so enjoyable. Sandra.
