Beautiful friendly place, low priced rooms
What a gorgeous place to stay! Listed building. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. I had ensuite and TV, double room for £65! What really makes it is the excellent friendly staff and high standard of food available in the dining room adjoining the beautiful Victorian pub. Recommend!
Shaun, gb1 night trip
Poor 2.0
Just stay far far away
A horrible place: unfriendly staff, awful smell emanating from the bathroom, broken shower (one staff member had the audacity to blame us for it!), not given breakfast even though we had paid for it, plus we had to pass through a small crowd of inebriated, smoking pub guests who made lewd comments as we tried going to our room. A horrible experience.

Good location
Close enough to stay for Wembley stadium and only a short walk to the tube station. Room was very basic with a very cramped shower room. For a twin it came a little awkward with the limited space. No restrictions on the windows so could be an issue for children. Overall I’d probably stay again due to location

Beautiful building, amazing staff
Although this is classed as 3 star, I found nothing to complain about. Our bedding and towels where fresh and white, our room was spacious and warm, staff very friendly and helpful. The bar and dinning room are beautiful, I look forward to staying here again.

Black Lion Kilburn high road
well located for kilburn tube station.The pub is 'oldie worldie' very comfortable- nice surroundings. There is some building work going on which starts early, at the side of the hotel. the rooms at the front are noisy also due to the traffic on Kilburn high road. But i return here many times .

Nice old feel hotel
I stood with 2 others (3 total) and we had enough space for all of in the room we got. Room was clean and efficient. The street was a bit busy with noise really early in the morning with buses and trash trucks but not horrible. Over all it was a nice stay not to far from a tube stop. The lady for the breakfast was a nice lady who took care of us and our needs.
