Quirky decor, great atmosphere and and helpful friendly staff. Breakfast was superb, only wished we were staying more than the one night.

I stay in lot's of corporate hotels with work and it was a real refreshing change to stay in a place where the owners have included so many thoughtful touches throughout. The breakfast was superb, I mean, home made baked beens for goodness sake!

Our room wasn't particularly spacious but for one night it was perfect and the restaurant that's part of the hotel is equally well decorated and staffed. Next time we'll book a table in the evening too.

The employees are very friendly and outstanding customer and very welcoming hotel. The pub is amazing but the beer is not very good. Great breakfast in the Angels and Gypsies. Very clean bathroom and comfortable bed

Why anyone would want to voluntarily leave the comforts of home to go stay in a hotel just four miles down the road from said home must puzzle most people, but for us, an occasional mini-break at the Church Street hotel is an absolute must.
This was,I think, our fourth stay - we come here to celebrate big occasions - both husband and I celebrated milestone birthdays with our families and friends here, and we've also come just because we felt like getting away from all the domestic drama of children and the dog etc. It's an absolute haven in which to find peace and relaxation, and we've just come here again to celebrate an anniversary. Without being able to put my finger on quite what it is, it seems to us that although there haven't - to our knowledge - been any major changes, this hotel just gets better. We are happy to see familiar features, especially the honesty bar which is a rare find in this world today. All the same features that make it a great hotel remain - the beautiful South/Latin American influenced decor throughout, the beautifully tiled bathrooms, the relaxing colonial style lounge cum bar, good quality complimentary coffee and tea available at all times, the books placed in each bedroom that I would actually want to read, while munching on one of the complimentary Green and Blacks chocolate bars, all the wonderful iconography scattered throughout. Beautifully clean rooms and bathrooms that I would give my right arm to have installed in my own own. There's so much that makes this such a special place. I've said before that some people might be put off by it's location - some distance from central London - and on a main road - but the area's multiculturalism - reflected in a plentiful and eclectic choice of restaurants and bars gives it a real vibe that you just cannot find in central London. The area is a hub for several bus-routes, most of which go into Central London and beyond, and make up for the absence of a tube station. In nay case, as a Londoner, I think buses are the best and cheapest way to get around and see London, and moreover, tube stations are only short bus-rides away, as well as the overground station at Denmark Hill. It is a busy, lively area, but we were surprised that all was fairly quiet by 11.30p.m. - it was during the week, so this may have had something to do with it. We dined at the excellent Angels and Gypsies tapas restaurant next door (hotel guests received a nice discount on their meals). As with the hotel, we received wonderful attentive and prompt service from the team of servers, great choice of food and drinks from a wide menu, and a beautifully cooked meal.
The only drawback is that it can get a bit noisy from quite early in the morning as businesses prepare for opening and early morning commuters start the journey to work but the double glazing keeps out most of the noise and if you're bothered by noise then ask for one of the rooms at the back - but then you don't get to enjoy the bustling scenes as life passes by in all its variety outside! Overall, this remains a gem of a hotel. Excellent service throughout from friendly knowledgeable staff, free no-fuss wifi, real value for money from this lovely, quirky, hotel that will appeal to families as well as solo travellers, business travellers or honeymooners. Looking forward already to our next stay!

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back if bothered by noise. For a cheaper option, book a room with a shared bath...

A charming little hotel completely unlike the big chains or the tourist rip-offs. Unique atmosphere, very friendly staff, masses of places to eat nearby. I always stay here now when I'm working in South London.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

We stayed one night after one of us had day surgery at Kings College Hospital. It was absolutely lovely, quiet and comfortable room, fabulous decor and fittings. We loved the lounge area with the unlimited tea and coffee. Evening meal at the attached Tapas restaurant was excellent and the breakfasts also

Stayed for 2 nights while attending a conference at Kings College. Ideal location, fab rooms, helpful, friendly staff. Nice extra touches in the rooms and plenty of places for food and drink nearby. Didn't have breakfast but colleagues said very good. Would consider staying here when visiting London despite being further out of City.

A nice friendly hotel, wonderful clean rooms and helpful staff. The breakfasts classed as "continental" were ample for us. Cereals, toasts, danish pastries, fresh orange/fruit juice, all delicious and made even more pleasant by the staff who were so obliging. Would definitely recommend.
