I wasn't in charge of accommodations for this particular trip and was somewhat concerned about it to be honest. However, I was thoroughly pleased with the Highbury Centre! Even if you don't have an ensuite room there are so many bathrooms on each floor that it's not a problem and the bathrooms are IMMACULATE. The Centre is in a quiet...

I spent three nights at the Highbury Centre. I had a single room with en-suite bathroom. The room and bathroom were small but adequate and impeccably clean. Staff are pleasant. Prices are hard to beat. There's a good breakfast and one meets interesting people at breakfast from different parts of the world. Unfortunately, though, I was there at what was...

I've used Highbury on a few trips to London because it's such good value, close to the centre of London and easy to get to. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable and the staff are always friendly and helpful. I don't get a room with an ensuite because they are so tiny and I've never had to...

Although the charter specifies Christian Workers, this accommodation is also open to anyone for a slightly higher charge. [Or put it another way, there is a discount for some.] These comments are based on a Double en-suite, which we had, though we were initially able to reserve a Family Room and go on a waiting list for the en-suite. Accommodation...

We needed a base in London for a night and sought out the Highbury Centre - and not for the first time - we went there on our honeymoon 45 years ago and from time to time since. on every occasion it is upgraded and this was no exception. We checked out at the correct time but they allowed us...

My ranking is based on comparison with other Christian accommodation that I have stayed at. If I had not stayed at St Katherine's in Limehouse or the Woodbrooke Quaker Centre in Birmingham, I would have rated the Highbury Centre higher. But, the other two are without doubt of higher quality and even more so given that they also charge about...

The Highbury Centre is the perfect place for ministry workers and their families to take a break and enjoy a comfortable room, hearty breakfast and kind people only a short walk to the London Underground. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My wife and me, our 10-month old baby, and my in laws stayed here for 5 days in May and we'd come again. We used Highbury Centre as a home base for our London sightseeing and really enjoyed the short walk through the park to and from the Highbury/Islington tube stop each day. The Centre is clean, free daily breakfast...

Enjoyed my visit - friendly receptionist, room basic but clean and comfortable, very nice breakfast. Although it has a Christian connection, non-believers are welcome, and they don't try to convert you over breakfast! It's a little bit of a trek to the Tube, but it's not too bad.

Easy to get to by bus or tube (Highbury and Islington and then a short ten minute walk), this is a great value place to stay. Very peaceful and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was simple but relaxed. Good to know your money is going to a positive venture, rather than the usual profit making hotels.

“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.”
