Leigh House Hotel

Reviewed 24 April 2013

Nothing particularly wrong here, but nothing that right. Single glazed GF room right on to the street and a small room (a double supposedly). Spending as little to charge as much is clearly the plan here. Cheapest soaps, cheapest breakfast. Fair enough if it was £50-£60 per night, but £150. No way.

Small, dirty, damaged room - light switches coming off the wall, shower door off the track. Shampoo not replaced (nice to find at 6 a.m.). Narrow steep staircase and no assistance with luggage - dangerous.

Convenient, but so are the 8 other hotels in the same area...

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.
