Our reservation at the Grange Blooms Hotel was made through our place of work so we hadnt done research etc like usual before booking a hotel. The location is fantastic, on Russell Square and close to major attractions. Montague street is relatively quiet in the evenings so noise was never an issue. The Hotel itself is lovely, traditional with original features, the twin room was a decent size and the bathroom was more than adequate. One of the main issues we found was the heat in the bedrooms, only one window opened (which looked like it was about to fall off) and there was no air conditioning available, we made use of the electric fan but it just circulated hot air, when it was 31 degrees outside it seemed even hotter in the bedroom.
The staff were all extremely friendly and went out of their way to ensure you had a good stay. The breakfast was very expensive, £17 for continental and over £22 for a full english breakfast. If our breakfast wasnt already paid for we would have gone elsewhere for food as Russell Square has plenty of places to eat, paying that amount for breakfast seems crazy when it wasnt anything special.
Apart from the little niggles it was a nice hotel in a great location (right behind the British Museum) but I feel if you want value for money there are better hotels to choose from. It wouldnt be at the top of my recommendation list but it was a nice experience.
