“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Very helpful friendly staff, very comfortable room. Close to Victoria Station and convenient for excellent restaurants.Would probably ask for a room closer to the lifts in future as this is such a large hotel with quite long walks to the rooms.Will definitely stay again.

A last minute trip to London took me to the Grosvenor hotel just next to Victoria station and I think the hotel formed part of the station some years ago!!

The hotel looks very grand from the outside and took only 3 minutes to walk from the tube to the hotel and only 12 minutes on the tube from Paddington. The inside of the hotel was just as grand and I was greeted by friendly staff on the reception, I was checked in and given a free upgrade to an executive room on the 7th floor.

The room was very spacious and had all the amenities you would expect with a quality hotel, the view from the window gave me vista's of London with the BT tower clearly visible. The room was lovely and quite being so high up, so I had a relaxing night.

I didn't unfortunately eat at the hotel due to attending an evening function so can comment on the quality and having to leave early in the morning I also didn't have a breakfast but the cost was £18 !!

Room Tip: I booked through a last minute website and paid £230 for a Wednesday night...unsure why I got a free...

All I can say is that the hotel is perfect. From the moment you walk in you will be taken away by it beauty. Staff were very friendly and efficient and it only gets better. The rooms are again very beautiful, immaculate with the cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen in a hotel. The Executive Lounge is excellent, my husband and I enjoyed drinks in the evening before we went out for the night and then had breakfast in there in the morning. It really added that little extra bit of luxury and relaxation. This really is a great hotel and I highly recommend it!!!

I stayed here recently for one night only and overall was very pleased with the room allocated. One issue however was finding used old cotton wool and tissues in the bin in the bathroom - obviously left over from the previous occupants. Whilst this was a little off putting it did not affect my stay and I can honestly say the room itself was lovely and well decorated (bed is very hard though!). The lobby of the hotel is lovely and all of the staff I encountered were very well mannered and helpful (especially the man that booked me in - very professional and friendly).I would stay again.

This hotel is located on Victoria station so has very handy links to rail, tube and buses. It's very easy to get anywhere in London from here. Sitting on the edge of Chelsea there are lots of great shops around within walking distance. We found some lovely little shops on Ebury Street and Pimlico Road.

We had a standard twin "Wing" room on the fourth floor. Although quite a walk from the lift the corridors are lovely and high and there are some great pictures on the wall reflecting the hotel's railway history. The room was of a standard size for London. The beds were comfortable. The furniture was a little bit worn but it all worked! Everywhere was very clean.

I took a computer to plug into the tv, as advertised on the website, but although the cables fitted there was no way of switching the input so we gave up - even the helpful concierge couldn't sort out this one!

The shower water pressure wasn't great and the bathroom was very small but it was serviceable.

Breakfast was ok but nothing special. Plenty of choice but an awful cup of tea and coffee!

I would stay here again if I could get the same bargain price but wouldn't want to pay their normal rates.

All the staff we came across were very pleasant and helpful and friendly.

Well what a beautiful hotel, we had a very warm reception on arrival and although our room wasnt ready (we did arrive 2 hours before check in) we went out and shopped and when we arrived back our case had been taken to our room which was lovely and clean with crisp linen on the beds and lovely toiletries in the bathroom. all staff were helpful from the reception staff to the concierge & staff in the cocktail bar. The cocktail bar is quite expensive with 12.5% service charge added to your bill however its what you expect & you do not have to pay the service charge if you dont want to. I paid it because the advice for the cocktails and the pleasant service of the waiter who bought the drinks to our table made it worth the while

We stayed there for my wife's birthday trip to London going to concert at Albert Hall. The Hotel was well positioned for transport. It was clean and efficient and we had stayed there on a similar trip last year and it remained at the same high standard as our previous visit. The added bonus was that we got a good deal.
