I stayed at the Leigh House Hotel for 3 nights as a group of 9 who were in London celebrating my friends 30th Birthday, and all of us have different opinions about the rooms we stayed in!
All of us agreed that the hotel was in a fantastic location - only 5/10 mins from Kings Cross and well within walking distance to Soho/Covent Garden/Oxford Street. Tube is also close at hand for those who prefer not to walk so much! There is a great selection of eating places at the nearby Brunswick Shopping Centre. The staff were very friendly and the cooked breakfast, along with choices of cereals, yoghurts and fruit juices, was brilliant!!!!
All of the rooms were quite small. My husband (room 7) and I didn't find this to be much of a problem, the bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean with a good shower. We didn't get any street noise as this room faced the back, but we did hear the subway, even on the first floor. We also appeared to have an asthmatic pigeon that took up residence outside our window! :)
Some of our party were in the 'Family' room, which us on the basement level. The youngest, who is 6 years old, was staying in this room so the noise of the subway and the fact that the toilet was located down the hall from the room was less than ideal. We did find it a bit strange that the 'Family' room was the only room that if a child was to go to the toilet, they were unable to get back in to their room without the door key. The adults staying in this room also commented that their daughter was unable to close the door to the toilet herself as it was quite stiff and that the light was too high for her to reach.
We had another two rooms (5 and 10). Reports from room 10 were that they were very happy with the hotel, no complaints at all!
Room 5 suffered from street noise, especially on the Friday and Saturday nights. There were a couple of other problems with this room, the window and the door both wouldn't shut at points throughout the weeeknd, but the hotel dealt with these.
Overall, I would say that hotel was really good, so long as you get a room facing the back and do not have to take the room in the basement. I would stay here again based on the location, the staff and the breakfast.
