Recent reviews

Exceptional 9.4 From 203 reviews

Good 6.0
Beautiful hotel and really pleasant staff. A full length mirror in the bedroom would have been useful. Also it was impossible to sit down to dry your hair owning to the mirror/desk/position of power point/length of hairdryer flex combination. The room was very atmospherically lit, however it was impossible to see to put makeup on and I ended up having to take the shade off one of the bedside lamps to get a bit more light! Minor irritations that a bit of thought on the part of the owners would easily sort out.

Quirky period hotel
Excellent quirky hotel. So easy to get to from Farringdon station and lots of venues for food and drink close by. Loved the individual room.

Great for character and comfort
Lovely hotel with lots of character, I would liked a little more lighting as I found I couldn’t read with the lamp light
Fay, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Quirky and comfortable, great for history lovers!
Friendly and helpful staff, and very comfortable accommodation. Such a quirky hotel, with all the little touches: beautiful furniture, history notes about the 17th century people and the Clerkenwell area. Very original and interesting. Unfortunately the TV stopped working on my second night, but they kindly offered me a free breakfast to make up for that.
