My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary weekend and I chose The Belgrave because of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. On arrival at the hotel we were impressed by the foyer and had high hopes which were dashed when we were shown to our room or 'half a room'. It was tiny - the reviews which say about Harry Potter rooms were right!
My husband is 6' 2" so we called down to reception to see if a bigger room was available to be told rudely that all the room sizes are the same (not true) and that the room size was usual for London (also not true). We have stayed in many hotels in London and have never had such a small room before, it was laughable.
The bathroom was ridiculous you couldn't even get to the sink to rinse your mouth after brushing your teeth. I couldn't use the hairdryer properly as the wire didn't stretch from the wall socket to the only mirror. There is no wardrobe only limited hanging space and no mini bar.
To make matters worse we were the only people at breakfast on Sunday morning, there were no waiting staff we had to find someone to take our order and my eggs benedict were dreadful - hard boiled eggs instead on poached - just nasty and not good enough for a 4* hotel.
Location wise although near to the tube it is a long walk into Westminister. I will pay more for a hotel in a better location in future and save money on taxis!
Thankfully the weather was fab so we didn't spend much time at the hotel. I am well travelled and write lots of reviews on TA, I think I am generally level headed about what to expect when I book somewhere. I do my research and I'm not often disappointed. Being a PA I need to be able to trust my judgement when booking places to stay, I guess I will just have to put this one down to experience. Shame our anniversary was spoilt though!
