The hotel is very nice and has a good location not far from the metro station. The rooms are nice and everything is new. There is a little kitchen in each room so you can prepare your meals. Since the pub is downstairs that is certainly a plus :-)

We had a great meal in the pub and the only slight disappointment was not having the pork belly as whilst it sounded great it looked really fatty as if they could not be bothered to cook it for the hours it needs. Anyway the lamb shanks were good and meat fell off them like it should, fish & chips...

Was booked in here for 4 nights as a business trip. The hotel is impressive inside and the spacious rooms are very comfortable and newly furnished with good facilities. What makes the experience, is the staff. Everyone we met were courteous and attentive, from check in where we were offered a glass of champagne to the concierge who remembered us...

I have just spent two nights at The Alma. It has been my pub of choice for rugby for the past five years but it is not what it was. This is a good rugby pub with well appointed rooms. It is ideally situated for trains to Twickenham. I appreciate that on an International weekend they are very busy but...

We stayed again at this fabulous hotel. The rooms are great, everything you need, fresh milk, joe's tea bags and a Nespresso coffee machine in rooms. Reception staff are very helpful and want your stay to be enjoyable. Breakfast is the best, freshly cooked and service is excellent. Bar snacks are of great Standard and good value. The hotel is...

Really liked the rooms and the location but beds are very firm and the mattress protectors have a plastic core. Duvets are winter weight and must be on the beds all year round because the could not provide a lighter one when asked. Pillows were also sweaty. Breakfast was average. Sugar- coated cereals only.

Booked to stay at The Alma Hotel at short notice after bad experience of trying to use hotels.com with larger hotel chains in the area. Very glad I found The Alma! Great room, comfortable, quite, good facilities and helpful reception. The stay was rounded-off by the best breakfast I've had for a long time. Will definitely be going back, even...

Stayed there May 2016 for the Chelsea Flower show. Very nice and stylish room in convenient location off tube line.The breakfasts were fabulous and Lila's attention to every detail, warm hospitality and conversation in the mornings was a lovely way to start the day. We really appreciated that she remembered our preferences and treated us like old regulars. Looking forward...

Stayed here Saturday night for an evening engagement nearby. Peaceful and very pleasant - the staff are attentive and the rooms excellent. I stayed in the Garden Room and had my own private outdoors area, great for smoking. Bathroom was very spacious and the bed comfortable. Would happily stay here again!

The Alma is a well known and much liked pub situated in Wandsworth opposite from the station. Traditionally a rugby pub. Above the pub is a small hotel . Stayed for Christmas Day night as room was limited at my daughter's home. Super spot to escape to! Pleasant and friendly staff. Good room. Great choice of food at breakfast. Pleasant...
