Maddyinlondon stayed here on Jul 12, 2013 during their trip titled: Maddyinlondon's Great Adventure.
Leave it to Winston Churchill to let people know they can't make a statue of him if pigeons can land on his head.... So what did they do? They have him wired 24/7..... Yep, an electric current keeps them pests away!
Now that has little to do with our trip but a a little trivia never hurt anyone.
So here we are in London. It took us over 30 …
... and friends (and recovering from a major hangover developed by an unpleasant cocktail of vino,prosecco and jagerbombs), but I know the time will fly by and it won't be long (just somewhat colder) before I'm back in London with my nose to the grindstone.
I'm lucky to be sharing my journey with my trusty flatmate ...
... the whole building heaved with extravagance and opulence which turned my stomach. Dinner, for which we ran a little late, was at Smil's local Vietnamese restaurant, with excellent duck pancakes and pho. We couldn't believe it was our last night of the holiday, but we weren't allowed to mention it. On our last day, we tried our best to make it in time for breakfast at Fortnum & Mason again, but missed out by about ten minutes, so ...

Things have changed since I last flew, unless its just Norwegian airways. The check in was all do it yourself, right down to putting the flight destination stickers onto the luggage then scanning them onto the conveyor belt. We were under the impression that the bags were checked right through to Evenes so that this would be less hassle for us when we got to Oslo, this however was not the case. When ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
If your want a reasonably priced room within walking distance of major London attractions then this place will work just fine. No air con and the wifi is pricy but it is quaint and comfy.

I booked online at http://www.londonhotels4u.com/ for just £60 per night at Grange Rochester. An executive double room with my girlfriend, truly a place where we revived our romance. Breakfast was superb and its central location allowed us to visit some top attractions in London. It is an impressive place to enjoy your weekend in London. I recommend this hotel for couples travelling to London.

Historical Traveler Reviews Grange Rochester Hotel London
Lovely weekend break in London
The Grange Rochester is a lovely hotel situated within walking distance of Victoria Station in London.We stayed for three nights and had a gorgeous room with a balcony overlooking a park. The decor was beautiful and the room large.It has a beautiful glass elevator to all floors from the foyer.The hotel was spotless throughout and the staff were really pleasant and courteous.It was a pleasure to stay there and we will be returning in the near future.
The hotel is in a nice location and the room was nice but other than that, my stay there was not so good. This was my second trip to London. The first hotel that we stayed (the Thistle Westminster) was excellent. They had a very helpful concierge, nice and convenient restaurant and great staff.
The Rochester (Grange Hotel)
Second visit to this hotel and always enjoy it.
Marvelous breaklfast room and buffet breakfast.
Rooms are fairly spacious and nicely furnished.
Location could be more convenient, but it's good walking.
Tucked away near a school, it's a nice walk to Harrod's
via interesting streets and little shops.
A hidden gem!
I stayed at the grange rochester december 3 thru december 6. Even though my room was very small (it was a single), I was very satisfied with the room and the service. When I first checked into my room, I saw a no smoking sign on the table. i had asked for a smoking room. When I went to the receptionists desk, she apologized and gave me an ashtray. The room was cleaned well each day and the hotel staff was always polite. The only problem I had was there were only 10 channels on the t.v. I only mention it because I thought while I was in London I would enjoy some classic British television. The location was exceptional because one could walk to Victoria station.For the price ,I would stay there again
We stayed at Grange Rochester in December of 2004 and were very disappointed. I'll start with the biggest problems first. The blankets on the bed had such huge stains on them, we were disgusted to look at them. The mattress was very dirty too, although the sheet covering it was clean. Stil, just knowing what lies beneath the sheet was enough. The towels in the bathroom looked clean but had an unfresh smell. We requested a double bed, but instead we got two single beds moved close together, which kept moving apart in the middle of the night. The safe in the room did not work. After calling reception, they sent someone up to fix it. And the main problem was at the end of our stay. The hotel arranged a shuttle to the airport for us with Hotelink. The shuttle never showed up & we ended up taking a taxi to the airport almost missing our flight. I understand that it was Hotelink's fault for not showing up, not the hotel's. However, we trusted the hotel to arrange our transportation and they failed. It's their job to make sure they do business with reliable shuttle companies. Overall, this hotel does not justify the price we paid. If you're paying more than $70/night IT'S NOT WORTH IT!
Wonderful Hotel, Staff and Service
Stayed four days 8/27-8/31. Wonderful hotel. Large rooms, great staff and service. Booked through Grange Hotel website and received fantastic deal for August Bank Holiday Weekend.
Approximately $100 per night for a very large double room including tax and breakfast. The location is a bit off the beaten track for evening activities, but close to Victoria Station. I was very pleased with my stay.
I took the room at the Rochester based on the fabulous rate and the close proximity to Victoria Station. The lobby area and entrance were small, but nice. My room was on the 5th floor (the top floor), however, the elevator only went to the 4th and had it not been for the helpful bell-hop, it would have been miserable lugging heavy suit cases up an extra floor of stairs. I was a bit concerned since the hallways were not air conditioned, however, the room was. It was a fairly nice sized room by London standards with a decently sized bathroom more than large enough for one person at a time, but too small for two at a time. The one thing I did notice about the bathroom was that the towels had an unusually pungent smell on them as if they had been dry cleaned but with dirty percholorethylene. I had to have them replaced. Also, I did notice quite a bit of dust in the room, expecially where the walls met the floor. The rate included a breakfast each morning starting at 7 am, which included the standard European fare and excessively strong coffee. If you are jet-lagged easily, this is the place for you! Two cups of that joe and your motor will be running all day long! I would recommend the hotel as a good place for 2-3 nights max, but would look elsewhere for longer stays in a place that provided more creature comforts.
I spent some time going through the reviews posted here before deciding upon the Rochester Grange. I was looking for a reasonably nice hotel on a tight budget to invite my wife to celebrate (my own) birthday in London.
Good hotel, great value for London
We booked this hotel through their website and thought the price was quite reasonable. The rooms were nicely furnished. The bathroom was quite small but adequate. Within walking distance of many attactions in the Westminster area. The staff were very helpful. Compared to the quality of a lot of hotels in London this was a great hotel for the price.
We booked the Grange Rochester in London as a Last Minute Booking and we were a little concerned as you had no reviews on this hotel at all. But I can confirm this is an excellant hotel, the staff are friendly and very keen to assist with any matters you have. They also have a concierge desk, so very easy to find directions to all the attractions. During our stay many of the Tube Lines were not working, but we found the location to be ideal. 10mins walk to Victoria Station, 20mins walk to Westminster, London Eye, Big Ben etc. The rooms were decorated to a very high standard and the showers were excellant too, with no problems with the hot water. Breakfast was Continental, but more than enough for a good days sight-seeing (Full English at an additional price). Overall I rate this hotel very highly and will certainly be going back
