Collingham Serviced Apartments
Ranked #121 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We had a great time visiting London and staying at the Collingham Apartments.
We visited with our two adult children and it worked out really well.
The staff was very helpful and the housekeeping staff was fantastic.
FYI - this is not a hotel, i.e., no restaurant, gym, etc.
Only downside was internet access (wifi) was very spotty and frustrating.

My colleague and I stayed at the Collingham Service Apartments on the 25th of March. We were very welcomed from the moment we arrived, upgraded to a Pent House Apartment with a lovely welcome gift. The apartment was very spacious, warm and made for a very pleasant stay. We usually stay in hotels but the apartments have been a great find and we will definitely be back. Thanks to all the staff for making us so welcome.

Stayed here in late March with my family. Convenient to two Underground Stations. The rooms were comfortable, clean and very English. Service was professional and prompt. The only complaint I have relates to Internet. Rates were too high and service was spotty - particularly when trying to connect to US based URLs. Overall though, I would stay here again.

Dear Guests,
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Collingham Serviced Apartments. Our guests love the fact that we are an apartment hotel as the additional space is very refreshing in a big city, offering you space to relax. We value our personalised service and so I was pleased to read your comments about our staff. With regards to our location, we are a few minutes from Gloucester Road underground and close to shops/supermarket, and short walk to Knightsbridge and Museums. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon.

Stayed three nights at the Collingham.
Good standard of accommodation, very well-equipped kitchen and living room. Friendly and courteous staff. But there are issues which need addressing:

Bathroom was of a fair standard but the shower had barely any water pressure and was barely functional. Unpleasant to wrestle with a trickle of water when getting ready for meetings in the morning.

No toiletries provided whatsoever which is a major negative for any hospitality outfit. Requested shampoo and toothpaste late at night but was told I'd have to go to the shop. This is unacceptable!

Internet costs £9 per day per device (can't have laptop and phone on same account) which is extortionate considering the room rates. To have 900 channels of free TV but charge for internet is a bit backwards.

Bed was really uncomfortable, didn't sleep well. Also it gets very hot in the apartments so I had to sleep with the window open (in March!).

I can't fault the location or the people, but some of their amenities really need a rethink.

They also don't seem to actually read reviews on TripAdvisor, just reply with the same canned responses every time.

Dear Sir,
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We do read all reviews and personally answer each one. Internet is charged at £9 per day or £35 per week per apartment, this covers all your devices, we do offer free wifi for guests that book directly via email or telephone with us, our providers operate a 24 hour helpline for our guests. We do welcome guests with gifts of wine and chocolates, but normally our guests prefer to come equipped with their own toiletries.
Regards
GM

It was our first stay at the Collingham Apartments and I cannot fault the experience. We received a very warm welcome on our arrival, checking in was painless and lucky for us the room was ready straight away even though we arrived early.

We had a lovely two bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment on the first floor, perfect for our party, which included my husband and mother in law. The complimentary wine and Maltesers on arrival went down a treat and did not last long. The rooms were decorated beautifully and the kitchen was well appointed, with all appliances working.

We booked directly with the Collingham, so we received complimentary wifi which was very good. The location was fabulous, surrounded by parks and a 5 minute walk from Earls Court station and all the shops.

We will definitely stay there again given the chance.

I had heard good reports from my colleagues who had visited the Collingham previously but still wasn't sure what to expect-I need not have worried as first impressions were excellent. Friendly professional staff, luxurious decor, spacious apartment & out door decked terrace was a bonus!
On arrival we had a welcome letter from the management which was a lovely personal touch. We were also provided with washing up liquid, tea towels, tea, coffee & milk sachets plus kitchen roll-which you don't normally get in my experience.
The location was so quiet yet if you go left out of the main doors & walk about 10 minutes you have access to loads of restaurants, cafes, takeaways & shops. If you need to get any supplies then there is a Tesco Express facing Gloucester Rd tube station which is really handy. Unfortunately I only got to stay 1 night as I was there for The Business Travel Show at Earl's Court, however I would definitely love to go back for a longer leisure stay so that I can make the most of the excellent location. Thank you to Beverley & Guvinda (Reception) for helping to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Our 1 night stay in our 2 bedroom apartment was just heaven :)..The location of the Collingham is in an ideal area, right in the heart of Chelsea and only a 15 minute taxi ride to Euston, this cost around £20.00 in black cab, or their is a tube station literally around the corner..On arrival, we were greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine and newspaper.. Our apartment was spotless, very spacious and was home from home.. With a fully fitted kitchen, including microwave, oven, fridge, pots, pans, SHARP knives, tea and coffee, salt & pepper, to be honest you could easily make your full Sunday Roast in this kitchen, even vases for flowers.. The lounge was lovely and spacious with dining room table, a luxury settee which folded out for extra guests, a large Plasma screen, with DVD player and another electrical gadget.. Another nice touch was the option of visiting their DVD library and there was also a large selection of current magazines in the Apartment, along with a personal information booklet written by Beverley the manager of recommended restaurants to dine in, what shows to go and see and lots of recommendations for places to sight see.. All the staff were extremely polite, even calling a private car for us when we dined out in the evening.. I cannot recommend the Collingham Apartments enough, the only shame is that they don't have more of these fabulous apartments in different locations across London, and that we only needed to stay for 1 night...Thank you Beverley, can't wait to visit you again soon Xx
