Nice Location for our weekend stay
Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed at The Grange Buckingham at the start of October with my mum and Sister. We were visiting London to go to the Theatre. We originally booked at the Grange Lancaster across the road but on arrival was told we had been upgraded to the Buckingham. We were greeted by a friendly trainee receptionist who started the process of booking us in. This took quite a while and when we asked if we could book breakfast we were told the price which was £5 more than at the Lancaster. We queried the price as we said we hadn't asked to be upgraded and so should be offered breakfast at the price that the Hotel we originally booked charge. It took a while to make the lady understand but we eventually got there and finished booking in. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was a decent size as was a triple room with a king size bed and a sofa bed which was made up ready. There was a dressing area and a cupboard containing kitchen units with a microwave, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. The room had tv, hairdryer etc but no iron and ironing board so we phoned down for one and they promptly brought it to us. The room was clean with the exception of the bath which had soap scum in it. The hotel is advertised as a 4 star hotel and the downstairs was decorated in a modern tasteful way but the bedroom looked a little tired and in need of modernisation. Bedford place where the Hotel is situated is in a nice, quiet location surrounded by 5 other hotels in the same group. The underground station Russel Square which is on the Piccadilly line is only a 5 minute walk away and is only 2 stops on From Covent Garden and 1 stop from Kings Cross Station so in a good location. We paid £198 for our triple room for 1 night.

Great location in central London. Bus and tube service is close and there are many restaurants in the neighborhood. The staff was efficient, friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Great hotel at a good price.

pleasant hotel in Georgian building
Reviewed 2 months ago

This was a very pleasant room in an old Georgian building. I was upgraded to a larger room which included a small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, sink and tea-making equipment). The "continental" buffet breakfast included eggs, cold cuts, fresh fruit and was served in a room facing out onto the garden in back. The location is wonderfully convenient, near the British Museum, parks, buses & underground, walking distance to several central London landmarks.
I deducted one star for lack of air-conditioning during one of Europe's hottest summers.

No. 1 in London

Stayed here twice recently whilst working in London and it’s definitely the best hotel I’ve stayed at in the capital. Now this maybe was because I wasn’t paying but at £120 a night I felt you’d pay more for a lot less. It’s in a lovely quiet part of Central London, the Bloomsbury area near the British Museum, so a peaceful night is guaranteed. The rooms were tastefully decorated with good facilities. The bathroom/ shower was excellent and there’s tea making and microwave facilities. The breakfast was continental but plentiful and the service was attentive throughout.

4*room, 2* food
Reviewed 3 months ago

This is a fairly small and friendly hotel, conveniently placed for both the tube and bus service as well as about 100m from the British Museum. I very pleased to receive an upgrade to a large, well maintained room. It was very spacious with room for a super king bed, sofa, chairs and desk. In a small annex there was a kitchen unit with tea/coffee facilities and biscuits, replenished every day. The bathroom had a good selection of toiletries and towels. The bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately there was no air conditioning so I was thankful of the fan and the 3 opening windows. It's a fairly quiet street for London so I wasn't disturbed at night. My only disappointment was the breakfast. It was highly overpriced and unsurprisingly I ate breakfast on my own one morning and with one other visitor on the other. It is served in a small conservatory at the back of the hotel and laid out on a table without chiller facilities. There was a plate of cold meat which should have been kept chilled. Some of the fruit was fresh but the prepared fruit was tinned. There were pastries but they were not freshly baked and the coffee was only aired. A cooked breakfast was available but at extra cost.There are several cafes near by where freshly baked produce can be purchased at less than half the cost. All of the staff were very helpful and without the breakfast it was a pleasant stay.
