We stayed as a family for a few days at the Highbury Centre. The place is charming, feels very comfortable and like staying in someone's home. The staff were outstanding, they were so helpful and did what they could to help and give advice. My only complaint was that the Wifi was weak. We had to change rooms throughout our...

We stayed at the Highbury Centre for one night in January. As we had taken our car we found the Highbury very convenient as we could park and take the tube into Central London. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and welcoming. Lovely comfortable lounge areas. Although the rooms are basic, they were warm, clean and comfortable. Lovely hot...

We spent a week at the Highbury Centre while seeing London. Highbury is a northeastern suburb of London, and the Centre is perhaps a 15-minute walk from the train station that took us conveniently here and there to the sights and events around the city. The walk to the nearest bus station is shorter. The Centre is not a hotel,...

The location couldn't get much better. One stop away from Kings Cross and lots of great park areas to explore in the area. The rooms are nice and there are plenty of toilets and showers, even if your room does not come with a bathroom in the room. The food was good and the staff was very nice.

A warm welcome awaits on arrival, staff / fellow guests are friendly and place is clean. However, don't expect luxury. Accommodation is in the basic / hostel-esq category. Nothing more than the essentials in the room. Location / transport options are good - near (15-20 mins walk) to Highbury and Islington tube / overground station, Canonbury overground station and Arsenal...

Rooms, bathrooms, shower rooms, conference and public rooms - all far beyond customary 'budget' quality! The bedrooms all equipped with tea/coffee making facilities and plentiful supply of both! There is 'subdued' lighting so not consigned to rather 'bleak' ceiling light! Carpets and linen immaculate and cleaned daily. Staff approachable and ever ready to help. General ambience is one of quiet,...

My family stayed at the Highbury Centre for 5 nights in one of the family rooms. The place is great. The garden in the back is private and is suitable to reflect and relax. Wonderful breakfast, and quiet, clean rooms. Highly recommended!!!

I stayed here during a business trip and found the small, but comfortable room to be satisfactory. I was able to do work emails on the desk, hang up my wardrobe, and stretch out a bit. The conference areas are a bit dated, and breakfast wasn't fantastic (but was a lot of food), but all in all the value of...

“All rooms equally good but ones facing the lovely extensive back lawns and garden are quietest.”

“Choose a room without the ensuite bathroom, as the shared bathrooms are aplenty and very clean.”

“Depending on the purpose of your trip and your exact needs, I recommend you consider passing on the in-room bathroom facilities. The bathrooms on the floor, in the hallway, are incredibly clean and sufficient for all your needs. One is always very close to your room. You'll be pleasantly surprised.”
