Antony, gb4 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Strategic location.
Location is perfect; a minute walk to Gloucester Rd tube station, Earl’s Court and South Kensington within walking distance, plenty selection of restaurants nearby. The housekeeper named Cristina always ensured my room spotless clean. Carpets and interior very dated and require improvement. But overall it’s pleasant stay.

This Hotel is in a wonderful location. Loads of really nice restaurants and bars around. The rooms and the furniture in the rooms are a bit tired and they need to be refurbished. Every staff member I met was really nice and I felt very welcome.

Exceptional 10.0
Flew to London from Australia at short notice for a bereavement. Arrived at 8am and was given an early check in with no fuss and a very good rate due to low demand due to Covid-19 . Hotel is comfortable and in a great location for amenities and Heathrow.

michael, gb1 night trip
Poor 2.0
Not good at all as going by the name of holiday inn 1. Average room 2. No soaps and toothpaste etc in room 3. I had booked ROOM FOR THREE BUY THERE WAS NO SEPERATE BED FOR MY KID 4 breakfast was below average . I recommend that it’s worth not have any meals from this hotel. 5. Staff serving the meal was bit over arrogant. That should be kind as they should understand that they are keeping the great hotel’s name at stake. 6 I requested for extra bed and receptionist told me that he will call me , he never came came back .
