Historical Traveler Reviews Cherry Court Hotel London
Great value and central location convenient to buses/underground
Stayed at Cherry Court Hotel at the end of March for my first London trip. For only 45 GDP I got a single (twin size bed) room on the top floor (4th) of the hotel. When looking for a place to stay in expensive London (with the weak U.S. dollar), I did not find a better deal in price. The hosts Mr. & Mrs. Patel were quite welcoming. There is no lift so I was thankful to only have had a carry-on. Room was tiny but very clean and quiet. The room had a small but comfortable bathroom with shower. All the bathroom fixtures and the shower were quite new but an overweight or obese person may find the shower "challenging" as the shower doors opened only so far. The fruit basket breakfast is a nice healthy touch. I enjoyed the free internet access provided in the lobby as well. Victoria Station (with buses, the London Underground (local train) and other British trains leading to other parts of England) is a short walk away. The Gatwick Express (transportation to Gatwick Airport) is very close to the hotel so it's easy to find the hotel after arriving in London (take the escalators up one level & walk through the Victoria Station shops to the street adjacent to the hotel). A key central location and base from which to explore London for a reasonable price!
Cherry Court Hotel- Friendly, Safe & Clean
The Cherry Court Hotel was a great choice for my first solo visit to London.
The rooms are small, but very clean. Each room has a private bathroom, something hard to find in this price range. Television had local channels only, but who cares? You can watch cable at home! My room had nice color scheme, rust, brown and blue. I was able to leave things laying around (personal belongings and purchases) without worrying. Everything would be right where you left it on your return. Room was cleaned daily, fresh towels were provided. The Patels' (Owners) are friendly and tried to help when a store I wanted had closed. You get a key to the hotel door as well as a room key. No dining room, they leave a basket with fresh fruit, cereal bar, cookies and juice outside your door each evening. I hope to return next year and I will certainly want to stay here again. One note- couples might want to ask for the triple room, the extra space would be handy for luggage, etc. These rooms, once again, are small!
Can't wait to return!
I stayed at the Cherry Court Hotel for five nights. Considering the expense of other London hotels, this was a great deal. The room was very small but the hotel offers an excellent location only 1/2 block from Victoria Station. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
Won't stay here again
Four adult members of our family stayed in two seperate rooms from Sept. 5th to 13th, 2004. Although it was a very convenient location, we were extremely disappointed. I would compare this hotel to a substandard Motel 6. The wallpaper was peeling, the walls were damp, bathroom was cramped and not well maintained. I was only "allowed" a fresh wash cloth "every other" day. And, we had "deluxe rooms"!! Also, this hotel was recommended in Rick Steves' London 2004 travel book. I know this is London, one of the most expensive cities in the world but paying $100.00USD per day per room is on the high side for "these accommodations".
A nice little hotel close to Victoria Station
My wife and I stayed at Cherry Court in April 2003. The rooms were very small, in dire need of updating but at the same time were clean. Our room included a personal bathroom that appeared to be built into what was once a closet. It was also clean but had a funky odor that appeared to come from a drain in the floor. The owners were very friendly and provided free internet access in the lobby which was great for keeping touch with family back in the states. A fresh coat of paint and some updating to the bathroom would bring us back to this little hotel for the price. Otherwise we'd probably try another hotel.
We were expecting the room to be very small considering the price and the fact it was in London. However, we found the hotel and the rooms to be very run down. Torn carpets, unfinished plasterwork, no bedside lamp... It was a disappointment. It was difficult for a couple to share the room. I would probably pay a little more if I have the chance to visit London again. If price is your number one goal, then you will be happy at the Cherry Court Hotel.
Great place to stay
Great budget place to stay, the Patels are extremely helpful and the place is spotless. Free internet access and an easy location are also big plusses.
Had an excellent stay at the Cherry Court Hotel
We recently spent 10 days in London at the Cherry Court Hotel and highly recommend it. The Patels are excellent and helpful hosts. The prices are extremely reasonable by any standards, but particularly for London. The location right near Victoria Station and Victoria Coach was very handy for both taking day trips and taking the Gatwick Express from the airport. The rooms are neat and very clean. They are quite small though, just slightly bigger than the size of the bed, but since we spent very little time in our room, it was more than worth the cost savings for us.
Good but Small
We stayed at the Cherry Court Hotel in December 2002. The rooms are extremely small. Everything is built onto the walls to save space. The bathroom door slides because there is not enough room for the door to swing open in the traditional sense. Bring your own shampoo. They give you soap not shampoo (at least when i was there). GREAT location. Close to Victoria train station but on a quiet side street. Free breakfast of breakfast bars and fruit delivered to your door in a basket every morning. Very helpful owners. Great place if you're on a budget, however, I would stay somewhere else if you have 2 people because it's very cramped.
Would stay here again
I stayed at the Cherry Court Hotel for 8 days in May 2003. Although the room was quite small, it was very clean. The bathroom was also small but again, was extremely clean. The owners were very friendly and were helpful with directions, etc. The area (near Victoria Station) was quiet and we (2 women) felt safe returning late at night. I would definitely stay here again!

... because I can actually talk to them about it. I well and truly need an American map because I have no clue where some of the places they mention are. Saying that, I think Germans are my favourite. Not because they are better than everyone else, or good at English. Simply because I get each and every one of them...and the look on their faces! So basically. I know how to say 'thankyou have a good night' in German. But my customers don't know that. So when ...
... in the chocolate would make us drowsy. 2 hours later we were sleeping and got another 2 hours sleep. Lyndal wad excited about going to see one of her favourite places in London, Notting Hill, so we were up at 8am and ready to go shortly afterwards. The day before Nicole had told us about a popular coffee place called Monmouth located at the markets. We had been warned that the line for the coffee shop was usually out the door and down the road, but we took our chances ...
... is going on here we thought? At this point, a lady came up to us and said that we must move more slowly and quietly otherwise it will upset the room. She strongly suggested we put on the head phones and hop into a bed and stay for as long as we liked as it was an experience not to be missed. It was a place of total silence and meditation. Christ! We gave the bed a miss but decided, out of courtesy, to take the headphones and just sit with the others. The head ...
Tiffani was the first person up this morning. She wanted to get out and pick up her registration packet for her conference early so it wouldn't interfere with the day we had planned. After all, that is the reason for this trip, the conference ;)
