Great stay
Amazing room with a stunning view over Portabello Road. Great vinyl choices too

Fair 4.0
Paper Thin Walls
The rooms are well appointed, overlooking Portobello Road, and are beautifully decorated. The only downside was the paper thin stud walls! The noise on the road was absolutely fine (and I expected that), but I didn't expect to hear our neighbours every footstep in the room next door. A shame as it would have been lovely otherwise!

Very good 8.0
Cute, quiet room, great location
Ideal place to stay for a solo traveler. Convenient location, great view from room and hospitable staff. One concern, however, i put the do not disturb sign on the door but someone had entered the room while I was out and removed the sign. Uneasy feeling knowing someone entered my room when the Do not disturb sign was on the door. Other than this, great stay.

Pleasant stay
Brilliant area to stay in, lovely markets and atmosphere about the place. I believe there are just 3 rooms and they are above the bar and restaurant. We went up to our room around midnight, all nice and quiet. Hotel was extremely friendly, check in was not manned but we were helped by bar staff. Room was really modern, even had a record player and some vinyls to play on it. Couple of free drinks, lovely smelling toiletries, all very clean. Room was not big with a queen sized bed so just a bit smaller than a double. It was comfortable though so didn’t bother us but worth a mention. Remember they don’t do breakfast but there are a couple of coffee and pastry places nearby and if you like a cooked breakfast there’s a nice pub as you turn left out the distillery just up the road on the right.

The Distillery Hotel
The Distillery is a great venue - brilliant bars and the Gin Tour & Masterclass is a must. However, the rooms for accommodation are small, very small, but have everything you need for your stay. Very clean and really comfy beds, just watch the corners - you'll be going home with a few bruises!

Fabulous accommodation at such a good price for the area. Staff were accommodating and the gin cocktails in the mini bar, plus record player in the room, ia such a great touch!

One of my favourite hotels in London
Lovely, beautiful hotel. My only issue is it was quite loud with the staff banging around outside the room in the evening but it soon stopped. It's more of a pub with a gorgeous little hotel room hidden in the top and it's prime location plus so well done out inside, the rooms are modern, comfortable, incredibly clean and well stocked. I'd stay here every night if it wasn't fully booked! I love staying here, it was my second time.

Quirky but lovely!
Was only there very briefly as we were in London for a concert, but the time we did spend there was lovely. Room was clean, fresh and nicely decorated with a couple of nice touches like a record player, a free little cocktail in the fridge and lovely smellies in the bathroom. Location was perfect right on Portobello road and great if you want to mill about and get away from some of the major tourist attractions. Cant recommend it enough.
