5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2009

Superb location - easy access to Marble Arch and surrounding attractions. Room, although dark (we were in basement) was spacious, comfy and lovely. Staff were welcoming & helpful. Overall, really enjoyed our two night stay. Our son stayed in room with us and there was still plenty of room even with sofa bed down. Would recommend this b&b with 4/5* appeal.

This hotel is more like a bed and breakfast and it is like a renovated brownstone. The rooms are lovely, the staff is nice and very helpful and it was a great location for all that I wanted to do. It felt as though I was in a nice home. The rooms are very comfortable with nice beds and bedding. Breakfast is good though the one room that could use better decor is the breakfast room. I plan on staying again for my next trip.

Having stayed at the Sumner hotel last year, we decided to return for a 2nd stay. We opted for a larger front-facing room this time and were not disappointed. We requested a room on the top floor and this request was granted.

The whole hotel is simply wonderful - the helpful staff, the adequate breakfast, the free internet in the lounge.

Would definatly return for a 3rd stay!

The Sumner Hotel received good ratings on Trip Advisor so we choose it for our stay in London. Good choice. It is a quiet, small hotel, quite modern, with 20 rooms. The staff was young, friendly and very helpful. We had a large room with all the amenities except an in room safe. The only real disappointment was that the walls were not well insulated as we could hear the next room. Excellent hot full breakfast was included in the price. We really liked the location, only a couple of blocks from Oxford Street and Marble Arch making access to the Underground and the rest of London, quick and easy. Several restaurants, in all price ranges. near the hotel. Guests are provided with a map and details of most of them.

We stayed at the Sumner in October (2008) and had a very enjoyable stay. Our return visit was just as good. The room was a little larger than the "standard" London hotel room, the bathroom compact but very serviceable. The only negative being the stairs on the landings to the room - if you are unsteady on your feet - thread carefully as the stairs are narrow and not always perfectly level (they do have lifts, but to access some rooms you do need to negotiate a few sets of stairs). Otherwise no issues.

The breakfast - generous and fresh. The service excellent - the same waitress (from last year) who remembered tea and coffee preferences on days 2-4. The internet facility in the lounge was a plus.

This time we ate locally and found the fact sheet that the hotel provided an excellent guide. After a couple of nights of expensive meals elsewhere we were delighted to eat at reasonably priced (by London standards) neighbourhood restaurants, all within a couple of hundred metres of the hotel.

The hotel is perfectly located to transport and shopping.

Excellent price value - for London.

Just back from our second stay at the Sumner.. Very nice ,again.
Location is great , you can walk through Hyde Park to Harrods,Buckingham Palace or Victoria Station. Also, Oxford St and the tube at Marblearch.
Nice restaurants in the area and a few local pubs.
If you can get a good price--take it.

We stayed here for two nights, having booked tickets to see a Westend Play and do a bit of shopping in London.
The hotel was lovely, bright, friendly and small. Our room was on the second floor, facing the street and although it's a busy part of the city, the noise level was very low inside. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was good. Breakfast was served in the basement, with lots to choose from and the staff were very pleasent. Reception guys couldn't have been more helpfull.
We never got a chance to relax in the lounge, but it looked very relaxing.
Will book this hotel the next time I'm in London. Fab
