“Leigh House Hotel Well Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

The Leigh House Hotel is situated, very conveniently just ten minutes walk away from Euston station and is not hard to find ! When we arrived, we were met by a very courteous and polite gentleman by the name of Ravi, who manned the reception. He showed us to our room, which was not only a decent size, given this is a small hotel but was also delightfully decorated in bright colours and possessed all the amenities we requited during our stay there ie coffee and tea making facilities hairdryer, LCD television and a bathroom ensuite, which by the way was also brightly painted and decorated and also spotless.

The breakfast was included in the price and was served by two very pleasant young ladies in a small but elegant dining room, with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit, juices and if you still had room for more, a full english breakfast with a selection of toasts, tea or coffee. Not bad for a stay in London when you consider the two night stay for two people cost only £129. It This is advertised as a two star hotel, do not let that put you off I recently stayed in a four star hotel in York cost £130 a night and it came no where near the standard of this establishment. The tube at Russell Square is just three minutes walk away or you can take a liesurely stroll to Covent Garden in just twenty minutes ! I would recommend this hotel and certainly stay here again if visiting London.

I stayed here for one night for an interview. The location is excellent, the room and bathroom were spotless and I slept well.

The staff were really helpful and friendly. There's a 24hr reception and they graciously dealt with my many requests for printing, ironing etc.

A bit of a shock when we walked through door as reception and stairs are all on top of each other!
Room was basic and tiny though clean. A plus point was that the windows opened so did not feel too claustrophobic. However, it is a good location and there is a fabulous coffee / breakfast place across the road. Also great for soaking up some of the Bloomsbury atmosphere.

We stayed here for two nights for a short break in London to celebrate a birthday. We picked this hotel due to the price and location. It is extremly handy for the tube (Russel Square - 3 minute walk) and makes it easy to get around all the tourist attrations you may wish to see in London.

The standard is very basic and I suppose this is reflected in the price you pay. The staff are friendly and reception was always manned, I found the fact we had to return our key card everytime we left the hotel a little old fashioned.

On departure there was a slight issue with settling the bill, however the manager was called and he resolved this issue promptly and in a friendly manner. They also alllowed us to leave our bags next to reception as we were not departing until the evening.

On to the rooms - Our room was located on the corner front of the building on the first floor. This fronts onto the main road which can be busy, however we were out all day and not back til late at night of which we were quite merry so noises and poor curtains didnt seem to affect our sleep. Sound does travel around the hotel, walls seem to be quite thin, it did on the last morning of our stay sound like a rocking chair creeking above our room.

Our room was very small and quite 'tatty' please see attached photos. This didnt bother us as we hadnt paid alot and this was literally a base for our weekend away.

Overall if your just looking for a basic room to sleep in and not to worried about noise, but location and price is important to you then this is the hotel for you.

Stayed in this hotel for two nights over a weekend with my girlfriend for a short break. We picked this hotel because the prices were great value and as students who have just graduated this is very appealing! This also means that we dont have high standards in terms of accommodation, and didn't expect anything really for the price we paid for this hotel. However we were pleasantly surprised.

Upon arrival and throughout the whole stay the staff were very polite and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We had a top floor room (3rd floor) facing the street which had a nice view of the park opposite. If your a light sleeper and staying here in the hot summer, you may struggle since the road noise can be abit loud on with the window open....however im not so thats fine with me. Also if your not great with stairs the 3rd floor can seem like a mountain with no lift......but again thats fine with me.

Breakfast was decent, especially that it was include in the price of the room. The cooked breakfast was basic and minimal but did the job. I would rate this place higher, but to be honest I think it did exactly what it said on the tin, and thats all I wanted since I spent minimal time in the room as we were always out and about. Euston train station was only a 10 min walk away so its easy to get to anywhere in London.

I would stay here again if coming to visit london on a budget. Good location and friendly staff.

Room Tip: If your a light sleeper try and get a room that isn't facing the main road.

Terrible - I am the friend of the reviewer below and was so upset with the room. Sadly due to the fact that we were both arriving into london (for a wedding) from the opposite sides of the country and were a little delayed we only had an hour to get ready... any longer and I just would have walked OUT and found another hotel!! The room had NO natural light (try getting ready for a wedding under one ceiling light) the wall light did not work, the bathroom was down the hall (not part of the room) and it was covered in small fruit flies everywhere?

At NO point when booking online were we told we would 1) be in the basement and 2) have a bathroom down the hall).

The smell was so bad that I had a sore throat for 24 hours after - even lost my voice from having to sleep with two air fresheners plugged in and a fan on constantly. I wouldn't let a dog live in that room! I really think the hotel should not be using this room for anything but storage!

The wallpaper was torn and scratched off the walls by the bedposts and everything was just damp. I have never stayed anywhere as bad as this. The £30 they knocked off the £95 was still an insult. The one decent thing was the breakfast - but that wasn't worth the balance £65!!!!

Room Tip: Don't get the basement room!!!!

My friend and I wanted a room with 2 singles in for our weekend in London for a friends wedding. She booked this hotel due to the £95 well priced triple room and the photos of it online looked okay for the single night we needed. Well, OMG, what a shock. When we arrived they advised us the room was in the basement, which would have been okay, but MY GOD, the smell was absolutely shocking. There was a window but you couldnt open it as when you did, the smell from the next doors restaurant kitchens and well yard area was directly into our room. We closed the window instantly, but the room smelt of damp and like a cupboard which had mouldy old shoes festering in it for months on end. This room was nothing better than a shoebox which stank rotten, should be a storage room only and not for guests. The person on the front desk offered us a plug in aifreshner as if that was acceptabe ? RIGHT ? We insisted we wanted another room, they said they were fully booked but would check with the sister hotel 3 mins away, and guess what, no room at the inn there !! So we had no option but to accept what we were given, with the predicament we were in. They also advised us upon booking in that the bathroom was down the corridor, which we accepted as they said no other guest would use it, as it was solely for our use but YUK. It had flies in it everywhere!! in the shower, dead on the floor, flying around, it was horrid. We couldn't believe it, as the vent in the room also went onto the restaurants back courtyard kitchen/scullery area, again SMELLS! There was no soak away in the floor, so when we put the shower on, and the shower curtain did not fit to the bottom of the tray, the water soaked the floor and left the floor drenched. We advised them on our way out to our wedding that we had to used the disgusting towels they left us to soak up the water drenched floor. NOT GOOD ! After our evening out we came back to our hotel and again walked into this stinking shoebox to be greeted with the lingering smell. They did discount our room when we left and took approx 1/3rd off the price, but honestly this room wasnt worth £30 to stay in let alone what we paid. When i got home, i opened my case and all my clothes stank of the smell of the room, it was foul! I put everything in the washing machine, and thanked my lucky stars that i would not ever stay there again. The only plus with this hotel was the location, but it was a very small plus. Certainly didnt make our weekend in London experience a pleasant one ! BE warned, if you book the twin, you might get the CELLAR !! ! don't accept this room, its not fit for sleeping in.

Room Tip: maybe other rooms are better, but advoid the twin room if they say its in the basement, check upon b...
