My boyfriend and I stayed here 2 weeks ago as part of our 3 week, 4 country vacation.
I usually never let him plan the important aspects of the vacation ( like where I'm going to be sleeping at night) but was in a trusting mood and let him have a crack at it.
When we arrived at Putney station, only about a mile (10 min. walk) from the Brewer's Inn, we made our way through a seemingly older neighborhood. We got a little lost, but only because we are Americans and not able to read bus routes very well. Finally after some wrong turns, we arrived at the Brewer's Inn.
From the outside it is a very quaint, small-ish establishment. Located right across from the Wandsworth Town Hall, it is easy to distinguish on City Maps. Also, this helped when we were trying to make our way back to the hotel late at night ( the underground closes at midnight!).
We made our way through the restaurant, around the corner to the receptionist desk, where we were greeted right away by the manager. Right off the bat she was extremely nice and eager to get us settled.
Our hotel room was on the first floor so we didn't have much of a trudge to our room. We noticed that to even gain access to the hotel rooms in the building you have to have a key card. This made us feel better about being in an older neighborhood.
The room was beautiful and spacious. We had plenty of room for our bags and there was at least 3 chairs for sitting that I can remember.
The bathroom was fully furnished and equally as spacious as the bedroom. It had plenty of counter space for my to spread my unnecessary toiletries across.
We showered and read the Hotel book, located in every room.
It had great places to eat, nearby transportation, events going on in the area, times for convenience stores, etc.
It really came in handy when we were planning our days as far as how long it takes to get into London from the hotel.
It was roughly a 25 minute trip to trafalgar square using the bus and underground.
Roughly a 20 min. ride to Wimbledon via bus (39) .
When we returned from our first day out the female manager greeted us and asked us how our day was. we loved her! She was super personable and helpful and easy to ask for questions about stuff in the area... not to mention she was there every time we walked into the lobby.
Breakfast was great. You get to choose from simple pastries to full english breakfasts.
We had dinner there as well and it was equally as great. The other hotel staff was very friendly and provided great service as well. We were never bothered by noise, even though there is a courtyard in the back where live music is played.
We really enjoyed our time there and would stay there again if ever in the area.
I know management changed 4 months before we arrived so any posts before then may have pertained to the other manager. I would recommend this to any of my friends of any age range.
