Portobello Gold
Ranked #114 of 578 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Great, friendly and very helpful. Rooms are small but are great for the location - after all you only need a bed to rest your weary body after a long day in London. Small and compact toilet/shower. All in all excellent and would recommend anyone to stay. Continental breakfast delicious. Next time we go we hope to try the rooftop terrace!

We've been regularly staying at the Portobello Gold over the past few years....we love this place for its atmosphere, character & above all friendly welcoming staff. The food is really very good, the raised Arabian style seating and tables in the restaurant area are fab ! The rooms are clean and comfortable. Situated right in the centre of Portabello with the antique market stalls all around on a Saturday creates a lovely atmosphere. If you're planning to visit London, and want to experience a little bit of London life, then this is the place to stay.......we're definitely coming back again & again & again !!!

This establishment had bags of character & very friendly staff.. It was well positioned being right on Portobello Road. Food was very good & the atmosphere was lively. It was reasonably priced and offered excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms at back of building would be quieter.

when I am unsure of the restaurant, I usually get a burger but whoaaaaaaaa! I was in for the experience of a lifetime, there is that certain smell that I enjoy, cooked well & the ambiance was fabulous.

Room Tip: once it gets busy, it is a challenge to get seat but once you started ordering and getting your food...

This is not a hotel but a pub with rooms. The staff were cheerful and helpful but the room was more like a cupboard with a bed in it. I could feel the springs coming through the mattress. The bathroom arrangement is terrible, the sink is in the shower, there are holes in the tiles and is very tired and outdated like the rest of the room. I didn't stay for breakfast as I just wanted to get out and never come back! Shame as it was supposed to be my birthday treat.

My friends and I stopped here for a quick coffee and cake whilst shopping in the markets. We had to wait 20 minutes before our orders were taken another 15 minutes before the drinks were brought to the table and another 15 minutes before 3 cheesecake slices appeared!!

My friend had initially asked if the advertised cream tea's were on offer, and told that they didn't have any, however when our bill came we had been charged for it!! The "manager" was rude, loud and arrogant, declaring that as it was Saturday and they were extremely busy he couldn't see our problem!! However not all the tables were full and there was limited staff... he seemed a little bit above himself....
There are many lovely places to eat, drink and people watch on the Portobello Road, so don't bother with this one if you want good service.
