Regency House Hotel

Reviewed 11 July 2014

Visit London on a regular basis with friend for theatre and galleries. This hotel has made improvements on each of our visits and they are trying hard to be as helpful as possible. It is superbly located for tube and transport and if one asks for a room high up at the back of the hotel it is very quiet at night as there are no loud restaurants, shops or pubs close by. Many of the buildings nearby are used by the university and facilities are round the corner on Goodge Street. We will definitely return as rooms are clean, breakfast is as much as we need and staff are welcoming. Our room had fridge and microwave which might be useful for people who don't want to eat out. yes, the bathrooms are small but these are old houses. Sadly the weather didn't allow us use of the garden but one day.... And they are happy to keep luggage for you on day of departure until one is ready to collect it.

Room Tip: Room 10 is high up and overlooking garden at back. It is for 3 people but as a couple of friends we...

Staff very welcoming and friendly. Bed lovely and comfy, linen extremely clean, the curtains were all hanging properly and of good quality. Okay the rooms are not spacious but I've stayed in hotels where you can't even walk round the bed. The bathroom is cosy but has all the facilities you need. Toiletries provided. Hair Dryer extremely good quality. I asked for an iron and ironing board, both were good quality (The Courthouse Double Tree Hilton could learn a lot from this small hotel). There was crockery, cutlery, even a microwave. And the air conditioning system was quiet and worked extremely well (Room 2). The garden is a delightful little haven with decking area, gazebo, tables & chairs, (this was lit up at night) and the most charming Coffee & Tea Cart where you could drink endless cups of complimentary tea, coffee & biscuits. You forgot you were in the middle of London. Free WiFi. Having trawled the internet looking at hundreds of hotels in the area there were no other hotels in the area we wanted to be in offering such good accommodation and facilities for the price without full payment up front. Will definitely stay here again. Finally, for breakfast I deviated from the menu and asked for fried egg on toast with tomato and was asked if I would like 2 eggs, so from my perspective the breakfast was not small. The toast was so delicious, we asked for more without any problem at all. The dining room is very small, but clean and you could see through to the kitchen but this again was extremely clean and efficiently run. If a lot of guests decide to have breakfast at the same time there is bound to be a wait as everything is cooked to order. Well Done Regency Hotel. Thank you Zuzana and Julia, and the gentleman (whose name I forgot to get).

Room Tip: I don't like stairs unfortunately in character houses like this there is no lift. Fortunately I...

The location was good, easy to get to as we used trains, 2 stations close by. Reception staff was friendly. Make sure not to book room 8 as it seems like sleeping in the basement and room 14 is next to dinning room (no sleeping in). rooms are very small, but clean and comfortable. Bathroom was modern and clean.

Stayed here 1 night with my husband. Rooms are quite small but clean and comfortable. Some repair to decoration needed. 5 mins walk from Euston underground. Breakfast a bit like the rooms. Small. We had to laugh because there was 1 of everything even 1 mushroom. But all in all a comfortable hotel. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely stop again.

I would suggest there are better places to stay in similar locality for £155 per night. If you have to stay here watch out for being put into a dark basement room with little light and no outlook, which is nothing like the imoression any of the photos portray. You could do better elsewhere

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to write this review.

We are sorry to hear that the room was not on your liking. We take guest feedback very seriously and have addressed the points you raised with our maintenance department and have taken extra measures to improve the lighting in this specific room.
We always try and accommodate guests request and should we have known in advance that you wanted to stay on a higher floor we would have allocated you accordingly subject to room type availability.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future.

Kind Regards,

Julia

We stayed here last week and found the location ideal for The British Museum and Marylebone Station. Julia the receptionist, was charming and incredibly helpful. When we booked we hadn't realised that there were basement rooms and the one we had been allocated only had a small window overlooking the basement wall of the building next door. The room, although small, was pleasant and well furnished but, as I am claustrophobic, it would have been impossible for me to stay in it. As this is something we should have checked in advance we do not blame the hotel for this and, in fact, Julia was very sympathetic and made several phone calls to see if she could organise us a different room, even though the hotel was very busy. She did manage to find us another, lovely room which, although still in the basement had a large window from which one could look up to street above and see the sky. We were delighted to be treated with such kindness and understanding and will certainly return (although ensuring we request a room above ground next time!).

Our overall impression of the hotel was very good. Good value for money, considering the location, clean and comfortable, with lovely staff and a full English breakfast included. Thank you!

Room Tip: Ask for a room above the basement if you are at all claustrophobic.

A nice little hotel in a great location. The receptionist was friendly and helpful on arrival, and the room surprisingly roomy and well-appointed for this part of London (although the bathroom could have fitted in a wardrobe and the floors were pretty squeaky). There was even a microwave. The stay would have been even better if I'd noticed the small switch for the air-con over by the door, as it would have been cooler and the noise of the fan would have covered the women chatting noisily next door. I chose this place due to close proximity to Kings Cross Station and the British Museum and it was perfect for that. It was the most expensive of the three hotels I stayed in in this area but worth it.

Room Tip: Remember to switch the air con on!
