This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I was a lone female guest and the staff were rude and unhelpful when I arrived. I was shown a room in the basement of the hotel next door (the Grenville hotel). The room was filthy, dark and smelt disgusting. The towels were filthy, the shower cubicle miniscule and v...

This is simply the worst (excuse for a) hotel I have ever had the displeasure to have booked into. It is an appalling advertisement for London and should be condemned. Small, scruffy, outdated, ill-equipped, vastly overpriced, pathetic breakfast, poor plumbing, in need of decoration, inadequate staff, noisy...... just don't bother to even think of staying there and perhaps a hotel...

nothing to say : one of the smallest shower I saw. Room : ok. but we decided to stay one more night (and didn't want to find another hotel at last minute) - we told the "manager" but at midnight we were awakened to pay for the room - without waiting for the next morning.

I stayed in mid July in this "hotel" and my experience was terrible. I was greeted by a gruff elderly man at reception who seemed to be put out by the fact that guests were staying in the hotel. A slightly nicer younger man showed me to my room which was actually in another building a few doors down from...

I checked into this hotel as it had been booked through my employer as it was close to a course I was attending at goodenough college. Having read the previous reviews i was nervous but tried to remain open minded. Please, please, please take notice of every negative review regarding this hotel. On check in it was apparent that this...

Pour les francophones, je reécris cette critique ci-dessous l'une en anglais. This is my first Trip Advisor review. I felt compelled to write it to counter the many, many reviews describing this place as somewhere between Fawlty Towers and a municipal dump. The Guildford hotel is fine. It's clean, comfortable and extremely well located (about 10 mins walk to Russell...

Honestly I'm not sure this place is even safe! The roof of my room was all cracked. Starting at the beginning......I stayed 3 nights. The room is tiny. The "bathroom" is a tiny cupboard I had to leave the door open when I used it to fit in. Not gonna lie I didn't have a shower my whole stay....I would...
