                Very loud building work woke me up in morning, very frustrating!

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                Location! Rear door in Victoria Station. What more could you ask for. Bright, spacious rooms with added sound proofing to windows. Very clean room, bathroom and hotel areas. Beautiful architecture - old building features retained and loved the old photos of train station etc along corridors to look at as you walked to your room. Generally all staff very polite and pleasant.

                Expensive breakfast (£20 per person) which was poor. Staff in breakfast area not attentive (even though restaurant was not busy) and continued talking among themselves. Communication issues over payment details entered into computer which staff could not easily reconcile themselves by checking online account without asking several questions.

                Comfiest bed I've ever had in a hotel. Location is perfect for sightseeing trip to London.

                Check-in/out is a very slow process. Room was a bit tatty and needs decorating. AC didn't work and the windows need double glazing.

                After reading some reviews I wasn't looking forward to staying there but I was upgraded to a double room and very pleased with it. It was very clean and I was extremely pleased. I will go back to the grosvenor again.

                The location was excellent for what I wanted to do. The conceige was very helpful in directing me how to get to Heathrow by bus and underground as well as to the theatre and back as I wanted to walk. I also liked that there was an easily accessible electrical outlet so I could charge my camera battery. One place I stayed I had to get down on the floor and crawl inside a cupboard.

                This is not a complaint but something I noticed in other hotels as well. Very few places provide face cloths or a top sheet on the bed. If you get to hot during the night and you take off the duvet, then you have nothing to put over you lightly, so you are either too hot or too chilly

                Location, tradition, lobby and staff

                Worn bedroom carpet and bathroom. Brekfast and interne tnot included. Brasserie did not have an exighting menue and price did not match quality. The new main restaurant seemed very expensive, but I cannot comment on the food as I did not eat theree.

                Beautiful hotel in a wonderful location within walking distance of many great tourist attractions. May it always be so, I have to say I enjoyed my stay very much.

                I thought that the beds in our room were quite hard bordering on the uncomfortable and if I sound a little bit churlish forgive me. But sometimes communication with non-english staff was a little bit difficult.

                The location was right next to Victoria Station, a hub of transportation in London. We came right in from Heathrow, stopping right at the hotel so no chance to get lost! It was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see in London. They even kept our luggage for us in a secure room when our departure time was several hours later than check-out time. Couldn't have been more perfect.
