Grange Holborn Hotel
Ranked #411 of 1,072 Hotels in London
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I stayed here with business for one night and would not choose to stay again. There was nothing wrong with it as such, it is just looking a little jaded and felt impersonal. It is a good location if you don't mind a 10 - 15 minute walk to things. There are tonnes of restaurants and bars around this area if you don't want to stay in the hotel. The room itself was a decent size for London with a very comfy settee. The room and the hotel was clean and the toiletries were very nice. Breakfast the next morning was usual fare. My biggest gripe was that there was no iron in the room which I would have expected for this level of hotel. Also check your bill when checking out - work had settled my room and breakfast but they tried to charge me again and when I pointed out that I should only be paying the £12.50 for room service, the lady checked and represented the bill but I have now come away and when I checked the receipt for what they had charged my car, it is for £158.00! Everyone that I met in the hotel was not from the UK and language was a bit of a barrier.

Nice location. Main streets are in walking distance. The hotel appearance is aged with little bit disappointing first impression, not a four star level. But the interior and room facilities are enough to get four or five stars. Staffs are friendly, and the concierge knows good restaurants (We enjoyed an Italian restaurant. Very good recommendation). Curtain pattern is too vivid. Little distractive.

Very welcoming staff on arrival, lovely room and facilities. Swimming pool area relaxing and enjoyed the beauty treatments. Decided to eat in restaurant rather than wander round london looking for somewhere. Food was fantastic and great set menu price. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Well located with comfortable rooms - and good food and bar service. Price not bad for London - with easy tube access and nearby car parking if needed. Friendly reception staff who coped efficiently with a large group arrival.

I only stayed one Saturday night with my wife for a getaway. It was a good deal through Lastminute though I could have got the same deal by going directly. The Secret Hotel deal through Lastminute claiming big savings - not true.

The hotel was a great position for the West End, 10-15 minutes brisk walk to Covent Garden. Rooms were typical of the 'English' style and would be great for those looking for that effect. Everything worked, service excellent, continental breakfast was great.
We didn't have time to use the spa but it looked pretty good too. Free internet (well done) and very comfortable beds.

At the price it was great for a city break and would be good for business I am sure.

I arrived in London with nowhere to stay and went to the booking service at St Pancras who sent me here. Whilst not cheap my rate did include breakfast and was not unreasonable. I was welcomed at reception by friendly cheerful staff and soon was in a spacious comfortable and spotlessly clean room. Good toiletries and an excellent selection of teas helped me recover from the trauma of being in a strange city with no accommodation. I was just sorry not to have time to use the spa (maybe next time for I would certainly stay here again). Breakfast was of good quality (a good selection of fresh fruit and lovely little croissants) tho' I didn't try the cooked offerings. It is just a short walk from the tube and on a well lit main road but I was not aware of much noise despite being at the front. Comfy bed. Only gripe would be small pillows but they were comfy and I slept well. I stayed here alone, returning post theatre and felt quite safe. Sainsburys on hand for supplies if needed.

This is a great hotel and good value for money.

Positives
Very friendly staff, keen to help.
Nice breakfast. Continental breakfast was included in my stay and again staff are very friendly. Some customers are somewhat tricky and feel the need to complain about the temperature in the breakfast room (don't wear just a vest top to breakfast is what I would have suggested but the staff were very professional and took such trivial complaints seriously.
Reliable wake up call
Nice room with good view. I came here to revise for an exam (and to attend an exam) and it was a good room to work in.
Free wifi

Negatives
Some stains on the sheets and on the towels. I do think they had been washed and were clean but it's not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Otherwise the cleanliness of the room was of a good standard.
Very difficult in making a simple amendment to my booking with a months notice but this is the fault of central reservations rather than Holborn.


Overall I'd say don't be put off by the bad reviews. i would stay here again if it was a good deal.
People seem to complain about the outside noise, but we're in London what do you expect?
