Haversham, United Kingdom3 contributions4 helpful votes
This was a surprise trip for my husband’s 40th birthday and as soon as we arrived, we were greeted with a very warm welcome. We stayed in the King suite which is on the lower ground and has a very small courtyard outside. Ok it’s not the biggest of rooms you will ever stay in but it’s a great room which is very quirly. It has an amazing bathroom which I think used to be a cellar! It’s in a great location, just a few minutes walk from Kings Cross station. There were balloons in the room, a gift and a birthday card, cucumber sandwiches and a free mini bar with wine and beers. They even came to our door to give us a half bottle of Prosecco. All this was done off their own backs, I did not pay anything extra for any of the extras! In the morning, there was a trolley with tea and biscuits! Their thoughtfulness and generosity was very much appreciated and made my husband’s birthday even more special. Thank you so much to all the team, you are definitely the most thoughtful hotel team I have ever experienced (especially in London) and I highly recommend anyone staying in this lovely little hotel, especially if it’s a special occasion.

Hotel's Favourite
Cute little townhouse 3 min walk from Kings Cross Station. Amazing friendly and helpful staff, from writing to them before arrival and chatting throughout the stay. Neil & Yanni are fabulous guys and can't do enough for you. Note: you need to look out for your email from Kingscrosshotelsgroup for your entry code to the front door and to your room. There is no lift, you could be on the top floor, be prepared to carry your luggage up tiny stairs. Nicely decorated, super clean and well looked after. Rain shower was lovely, but be warned, there is no hand held shower head, so bring a shower cap if you don't want wet hair every wash. Comfy pillows. Mattress was too soft for us as we are used to firm, but I suspect this will be super cozy for those that like it softer. Fresh clean bedding. Beware if you have large suitcases, the rooms are very tiny & it's tight for moving around, always stepping over the cases. We were lucky with our bed, it was a high one and we pushed the cases underneath, but my sister's room didn't have that option. It was our 5 yr wedding anniversary & brother in law's 49th birthday. We were greeted with mini bottles of Prosecco & glasses on arrival. We had a gorgeous hand written card and a vase of 8 red roses. Towels in the shape of swans too! Our fridges were stocked with chocolate, water, energy drinks and tea making bits. We asked for oat milk and there it was in the fridge. Also, both rooms had little gift box of L'occitane goodies, shower gel, shampoo and other small bits. Such a gorgeous gesture. Every day we had fresh towels, chocolate chip cookies & a daily newspaper. Sadly there is no breakfast, but it's London and there are local brekkie cafes in the surrounding streets. The most amazing cafe is the Sandwich St Kitchen. You'll find it on maps, 5 min walk from hotel. 5 star food and presentation. This hotel location is excellent, fast travel to the West End & Camden. Busses everywhere and of course the underground is right there for further afield. We are Londoners, returning for a weekend, so most of our adventures were done on foot because we know the back roads, however, awesome for those who are new to the area. On check-out, Hossain came to our room to collect our luggage to store for us in the main hotel reception. We weren't ready at the time, so we took our cases to Neil for safe keeping till we were ready to leave. Thanks to all! Dawn, Chris, Naz & Jules.

Hello Dawn, Chris, Naz & Jules, Neil here! 😄 I couldn't help but smile when I read your fantastic review. It was truly a pleasure having you celebrate your 5-year wedding anniversary and your brother-in-law's 49th birthday with us. I'm thrilled that you appreciated our little surprises, from the Prosecco and roses to the handwritten card and swan-shaped towels. We wanted to make your stay as special as possible. I see you made the most of the high bed and cleverly tucked your luggage underneath. Great thinking! 😅 Your kind words about our location and the Sandwich St Kitchen are much appreciated, and we'll definitely pass on your compliments. Thanks for choosing us for your London adventure, and we hope to welcome you back for more memorable moments in the future! Cheers, Neil and the whole team

Lovely room, well decorated, bright with its 2 large windows overlooking the park, and of a good size. Quiet area despite the proximity to St Pancras, with a nice pub 2 steps away. The nice staff takes great care, we really appreciated the morning tea/biscuits/newspaper/clean towels tray. Not to mention the little attentions already present in the room when we arrived (various drinks, a pot of jam), it's great! The shower room is not big but the water was hot so it was fine. A very nice place to stay to visit London !

Stayed here a few times. I love it. It’s friendly. It’s quirky. Always nice treats in the room upon arrival. The team make you feel special. The checking in and checking out works really well. And the pot of tea in the morning brightens your day. It’s becoming a regular for me.

Incredible attention to detail and the guest experience; I wasn't expecting all of the thoughtful additional gestures, such as the drinks and snacks, tea and newspaper in the morning, gift bag etc. This made me feel as though the staff had really gone the extra mile. The biggest surprise was the free room upgrade, as a larger room had become available, which was wonderfully kind. Accessing the building and room was easy and smooth, and the staff I spoke with were very friendly and welcoming. Whenever I next need to stay in central London, I will book here again! Huge thanks Rokxy Townhouse :D

Every single time I've stayed here, it's been excellent. The location is perfect, and the staff are extremely friendly and professional. I've never stayed anywhere else where so much attention is given to the customer experience as they do here. The personal touches in the room are exceptional, the easy check-in & check-out are great, and the rooms are fantastic. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I needed to be in central London. Janine

Tidworth, Hampshire, England5 contributions1 helpful vote
This place is very convenient for St Pancras and Kings Cross stations. The staff greeted us on arrival and gave us such a warm welcome. The room we had was small with no storage but we were only passing through so didn’t need much and could live out of our suitcase for one night. The bathroom was clean and the shower was excellent. There were sandwiches prepared for our arrival (included in the price), as well as a gift (large jar of Fortnum and Mason preserve) and there was wine, soft drinks and beers in the fridge (all included in the price). We received an email offering us a paper in the morning (although we were going to be gone before it would have arrived) which was a great gesture. There is a small games room at the top with a couple of retro arcade games in it so we had a nostalgic trip to the past included. Thank you team, keep up the good work.

Great location - less than 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross/St Pancras. Hotel has clearly been updated well and was very clean and nicely decorated. Lots of nice touches - stocked mini bar, sandwiches, pot of Jam from Fortnum's!, tea and coffee delivered in the morning. But most importantly, a really comfortable nights sleep.
