“Lovely”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Beautiful building from the outside, took us a while to find only because a taxi driver took us too the wrong Bloomsbury hotel... As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the doorman & directed to the reception. We were given our key cards & went straight upstairs. The decor is beautiful with bowls of floating candles & a gorgeous aroma filled the lobby. Our room & bathroom were rather small but had lovely decor & were nice & cosy. The bed was comfy & soft & was situated opposite a mirrored wall which made the room feel a little bigger. Not much of a view as it was a small window, looking across the street to another building. The room had a well stocked fridge & even better, a Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine with a box filled with different flavoured coffee pods which was a god send in the morning. The room had a wardrobe complete with hairdryer, safe, ironing board etc. We had breakfast the next morning which consisted of a traditional english & a continental. Lovely stay, next time we hope to visit the restaurant!

I stay in London on business almost every week and the Bloomsbury has now become my hotel of choice. The decor is lovely - the lobby area looks like a luncg/tea room in a country house - the service is friendly and efficient, and the rooms are well appointed (although the standard rooms can be a little small).

The location is between the British Museum and Tottenham Court Road. For those who don't know London, this is ashort walk to the restaurants and night spots of soho and the shopping of Oxford Street.

My girlfriend tells me the breakfast is very good (I have not eaten there) and the bar is cosy and relaxed. I have yet to use any fitness facilities.

This is not a cheap hotel, so probably best for business or the personally wealthy, but if you are can afford it then it is well worth the money.

We stayed for one night at the hotel and from the moment we arrived we were treated exceptionally well. The staff was so kind and welcoming. Our room was divine and we had everything we needed. It is situated in the perfect location. We will definitely go back!

This is the second overnight stay for a theatre evening and I cannot fault the hotel in any way.
I am not easily pleased so to find no faults is indeed a rarity in my experience with hotels.
The hotel location is great for shopping the theatre district and close to three main line stations..
Staff friendly and attentive without being pushy. The hotel is stylish but not pretentious.
I have stayed in the Cork hotel from the same group and found the same level of excellence.
Would not consider any other hotel on future trips to London.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments.

It is truly music to my ears to know that this is the second Doyle Collection hotel that you have frequented, and so rewarding to hear that you hold us in high regard for future stays in either Cork or London.

I hope that on your next visit there will be an opportunity for us to meet.

Great service, we were allowed to check in early and out late for no extra charge. We were also given a bottle of water for our return journey. Very clean everywhere and our room was well fitted and spacious, except for small bathroom which is why I have not given it 5/5.
Breakfast gets 5/5
Will definitely return

Dear Ian M

Thank you very much for your kind review. As I am sure you will know, the room sizes are dependent of the booked category, on average our entry level rooms are considerably larger than the average London hotel.

It is otherwise wonderful to know that breakfast and the overall experience was a great experience.

We had a great weekend in London and the hotel was a big part of that! Friendly and helpful staff, clean and modern rooms with all the amenities you could want, great service, high quality food and drinks. It also has a great location, situated in a quiet road but still close enough to walk to many famous locations. We will be back!
