“Good location for me”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

It was nice to get a double room upgrade, I thought the bathroom facilities just a bit compact for two but for me was fine for the overnight stay. It was just what I needed given what I had to do in London. Whether the food was good or indifferent I couldn't say, l but my room deal was rather good for London others I know paid much more. Barkston Gardens I'd say was quiet, away from too much passing traffic. A quick stroll to the tube and shops of Earls Court.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. We chose this location because it was more affordable than the other hotels closer to the city center, but it was located 5 min away from a very convenient tube station. From Earls Court tube station you can travel on several different lines in all directions. This made traveling around London very convenient. There are several pubs located nearby and a very good asian restaurant around the corner. The hotel itself was located on a quiet street. The rooms are very small and extremely basic…and outdated. We didn't spend much time in the hotel, so we didn't mind, but if you are looking for a hotel retreat, this would not be the place to stay.

The rooms are very small. The hotel is relatively expensive. You can get much better deals. You can hear and feel the underground when it passes by. It's very annoying when you are trying to sleep. The rest is just ok.

Reviewed 28 April 2014

this hotel was appauling, probably the worst i have stayed at and i have stayed in numerous Best Western hotels. The bedroom was smaller than my sons double bedroom at home, the bed was in the corner of the room against 2 walls. the decor was horrible, the furniture cheap, the decor dated and the sash window would not stay closed unless wedged with card. The English breakfast was baisc and " you got what you were given " even the fried eggs were hard. DONT STAY THERE

First room was a single and was very small but having said that was clean and comfortable. I moved to a twin for the next two nights as I was sharing with a friend and this room was lovely with French doors opening onto the garden. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would have no hesitation in staying here again when visiting London. Earls Court tube was no more than 2 minutes walk away but because the hotel is down a side road it is quiet and away from the noise of Earls Court Road.
