“Very nice, comfortable and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I stayed here for her birthday last night. It's situated near to earls court tube station, less than 5 minutes walk away. The reception staff were very welcoming and explained everything clearly. The room was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities you'd need. We would definitely stay here again

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

This was and ideal location for Earls Court when we went for the Ideal Home Exhibition. Arrived at Kings Cross Station onto the tube Piccadilly line eleven stops and we arrived at Earls Court, crossed the road and down the street and next to the building which is obviously having renovation work we were greeted two steps up by the concierge. Very quick check in. We were told we had been upgraded (didn't really make much difference to us as we didn't spend much time in our room) but all the same pleasant to know. Room was on the first floor looking out to the back of other buildings but not a problem for us. Room very lovely and spacious with wardrobe space, coffee/tea making facilities, writing desk and a large flat screen TV on the wall at the end of the bed. Bathroom was spacious and towels changed even though we hadn't put them out to be changed. A short 5-10 minute walk to Earls Court and a 20-25 minute walk to Stamford Bridge. Plenty of pubs around and places to eat be it a quick fix or something more substantial. (Didn't try the hotel for evening food). Breakfast was more than adequate with full English buffet style or cold meats, pastries, or breakfast cereals. Or you could always opt for paying the extra and having an omelette or poached eggs etc. All in all a very pleasant stay around a part of London we hadn't stayed around before and only a short tube journey into the centre of London to either hit Oxford Street, Leicester Square or Covent Garden. Small tip if you're staying in London and planning on using the tube invest in an Oyster Card not only do you get cheaper travel its also easier and this can be registered online and can easily be topped up on line.

I stay in London one night each week on business and try to find the best hotel I can in the range £100 to £150 per night. My first stay in a new hotel I write a Tripadvisor review which I try to make balanced and helpful. Often I stay at the same hotels again and again. This one I will not!

The only positive is that the room was newly decorated. All other parts of the experience were universally negative. Room up and down stairs next to kitchen on ground floor. No chair in room. No visible bar area or lounge other than the breakfast room. Seedy location in the nasty part of Earls Court. Not really the 4 star hotel it claims to be.

I stayed here for one night whilst in London. The hotel was adequate but nothing special. The postives were: the room was spacious, air con worked, was quiet, big tv, clean. The main negative was that the service was sub-standard. Particularly during the check-in process, the person I was dealing with was rather unpleasant and really not at all welcoming. Check-out was a bit better. Overall, the hotel is decent value for money and I would stay there again if I didn't have a better option. The area is ok, and if you are going to events in the area, would probably make it ideal.

Fantastic! - I have stayed in hotels in many different countries and dozens in the UK alone and The Park Grand is certainly much more than most - OK, as you walk from Earls Court you could think umm, this doesn't look 4* but past the renovations of the building next door you are greeted with the hotel and inviting marble steps - two steps up and already the concierge is opening the door and offering you a welcome hand with your luggage - once inside the friendly multi-lingual and nationalities make speedy work of making your reservation into reality - paperwork done keycard in hand and its in the lift with a friendly staff member who I have to say knew his onions! inside the room he showed how everything worked where everything was and left you to put your feet up on the very large comfortable bed and watch the flat screen HD TV - just Fantastic - ohh final day we checked out and walked to Kensington Palace past the Natural History Museum and The Albert Hall - this is all while The Park Grand looked after our luggage in their safe storage areas - simple and brilliant - back to collect much later and nip on the underground or overground to an exit point from the Capital - Thank you Park Grand and all staff you're a credit to the Shaftsbury Hotel Group

Room Tip: Our room was on 1st floor and at front ........... slept like a log - in fact slept in on day two!

Excellent service with all staff pleasant and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable and very pleasing decor. We visited Hammersmith Appollo and Ideal Home Exibition and hotel in very good location for both venues will definitely use again when next we visit London.

Room Tip: We stayed on second floor only noise we heard were other guests slamming doors which is no fault of...

On arrival I was given free upgrade to their club room. Had everything you need including a microwave! The room was very big, tv good and bathroom amazing -walk in shower. The room was very quiet, no street noise. Would definitely recommend. Hope to visit again if I can get a decent rate but probably spoiled by free upgrade!
