        Garden Court Reviews

        Guest reviews are submitted by our customers after their stay at Garden Court

        Individual guest reviews

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Included breakfast was fine; room and reception area was clean. Very accommodating about leaving luggage...even after check-out.

          Cramped space and aging furniture and bed linens. Not quite as convenient to spots to eat as we thought it would be. Rather high rate.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          This is a nice little hotel in a very handy (as in near good public transport) and yet quiet location.

          I had what was possibly the smallest hotel bathroom I've ever seen.

        • Single
          5.8

          nice staff, very small room ,high price

        • Single
          8.2

          Basic hotel where costs are kept low, but gives just the facilities you need. Clean rooms, and polite and hard working staff

          Nothing the hotel can be responsible for - but some of the surrounding properties had rowdy teenagers making loud noises till quite late

        • Single
          5.4

          The wifi didn't work and the staff didn't know how to fix it. Even the one computer in the lounge area didn't always work and it was difficult to get on it when it was.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Clean, quiet, comfortable.

          The "included" breakfast was very skimpy. Nothing to fill you up for a day of sightseeing.

        • Single
          6.6

          Quietness and the appearance

          I would have preferred paying for my stay when I arrived rather than at the end. That is -in fact- what they do at a B&B I usually stay at in London. As a result of this, I left the hotel a lot later than expected and missed my flight. I also believe you are too expensive for what you really offer: you don't even include a full English breakfast and from what I saw, the kitchen staff were abrupt, 'stroppy' and arrogant.

        • Couple
          6.2

          location

          the escalator noise just outside the room. the nasty smell in the moarning. a very weak breaskfest

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Location to transport & restaurants

          Bed too hard, no tea/coffee facilities in room, had to go downstairs and water was in a thermos so wasn't very hot. Also wifi was not free and considering the price of the rooms think it was a bit rich to charge on top even though it wasn't very much.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          It's still all about location, location, location. Garden Court is close to The Tube, restaurants and tourist shoppes. The hotel was convenient, clean, reliable/consistent, staff was friendly and the price was reasonable. I would definitely stay here again and can highly recommend it to friends!

          One of the front desk persons was young and not knowledgable about the area restaurants, attractions and local activities.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Hotel was fine , staff were friendly and accommodating , decent location. For the money a good deal , bathroom , decent size and a shower that was easy to use and effective. Down sides , two , no Tea and coffee in room , you have to go downstairs and would prefer a duvet to blankets.

        • Single
          8.8

          Great location. Quiet. Close to transport. Usual size of room for London. Recommendations!

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The hotel was good value for the money. The breakfast that was included was good. The staff members were friendly. The hotel was close to shopping, restaurants and local transportation.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Picked this hotel based on it's great reviews and can only agree with all of them. This hotel is a true gem! Small, friendly, cosy and exceptionally clean, in an excellent and very central location, on a leafy square. We had a room out to the back and couldn't believe it was so quiet in the middle of London. We woke up to the sound of birds singing! Am sure even the front rooms are quiet because the hotel is on a side street. All the hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room was cleaned daily, and fresh towels provided. The breakfast was very good, with excellent service. Didn't have the cooked breakfast though so can't comment on that. But considering the high standard of this hotel, I'm sure that's great too. This hotel is excellent value for money!

        • Couple
          10.0

          Very good value and a great location. Also extremely courteous staff. We arrived very early as we were attending a family event in London. Although we were too early to check in, the receptionist allowed us to use a bathroom to have a shower and freshen up - this gesture was very much appreciated!
