Historical Traveler Reviews NH Harrington Hall Hotel London
Just returned from a couple of days in London and the Harrington Hall was absolutely wonderful! The staff was extremely helpful with every question we had. The rooms were large, decorated very nice and were very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting London!
Quite a treat!
We stayed 12 nights last August (03) and would recommend this hotel strongly. The staff was amazingly competent and helpful, the room was clean, charming (not large), the shower was the best ever (even better than home!), warm towels, service was meticulous and the price was right (around $150 per night) through expedia. Great area, though not central London; we got pretty good at getting everywhere on the tube close by, very nice safe area, very pleasant to stroll through, good restaurants; the concierge was outstanding! Old fashioned look with all the goodies.
Good hotel - would recommend.
We just returned from England and stayed at the Harrington Hall Hotel three nights. This was booked through a travel agent (which I don't recommend, because you can do it less expensive on your own). When we arrived we discovered that the travel agent booked us in a room with two twin beds instead of a double. So..we ended up spending an additional 25 pounds per night to get a double room! Not too happy about that, but the hotel was very apologetic and gave us their "executive room" as a result. I really don't know how this room differs from the rest but it was very nice. The furnishings were good and it was very clean. The only complaint we had was that the room wasn't very cool. It was in the high 70's when we were there - very unusual for this time of year - and we did need air conditioning. We asked about turning the AC up and the maintenance guy came up but said it was as high as it could get, so he returned with a fan! They were very nice in that they worked very hard to make us comfortable. We only had the continental breakfast each morning but is was plenty for us. I'd stay there again.
No complaints and plenty of praise. The location is fantastic -- one block from the Gloucester Road tube stop, which is on three lines (District, Circle and Piccadilly). A charming residential neighbourhood, with just the right number of stores, restaurants, pubs and other conveniences very close by. Hotel front desk and lobby are charming, clean and efficient. The room was a pleasant surprise, given the price and given previous London hotel horror stories. Big room, comfortable bed, in-room electronic safe, good TV, good air conditioning, large bathroom with excellent shower. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
What a Great Hotel!
We just returned (two days ago) from a trip to London arranged by Virgin Atlantic (QE2 over, Harrington Hall booking, Virgin Atlantic flight home). We were so impressed with the hotel. Our 4th floor nonsmoking room was large, very quiet, and available when we arrived at 9:30 a.m. The staff, including the waitstaff in the dining room, were invariably friendly and helpful, and the complimentary buffet breakfast suited us perfectly. We ate in the dining room twice and found the food good and the prices surprisingly modest for London. The location was outstanding, about 3 minutes from the Gloucester Rd. Tube Station, and there were restaurants, a Starbuck's, and several grocery stores just around the corner. We'll stay there again and will certainly recommend it to friends.
Good location and quiet
Have stayed at the Harrington Hall hotel many times on business and pleasure. Actually switched from the Rembrandt after my wife found the Harrington. Very convenient to restaurants and transportation (tube, buses and taxi stands). Even a Starbucks close-by for the desperate!
The rooms are good for a hotel in this price range. You can connect your laptop to your dial-up provider without too much difficulty (something that can be a rarity in Europe). Staff are willing and courteous. Most importantly the rooms are quiet as the hotel is a couple of blocks from major roads. No difficulty with the laundry services although a bit pricy. Athough I started using this hotel when I travelled to London on business, it is now also my preferred leisure hotel when in London.
High marks for Harrington Hall
Great hotel and staff. Was so impressed with the location and service I arranged for a fellow traveller staying at a hotel near Victoria Station to take over my room for the duration of their stay, which was another 3 weeks beyond mine. My friend booked a different hotel long on Old World atmosphere but terribly short on amenities plus deafening noise from a nearby fire station and construction. Harrington Hall tho' is in a great location, block and half from Gloucester St. tube, with rooms and appointments one doesn't always count on in European hotels. The room ended up costing my friend less than the closet she was stuck in across town. The contrast in the two hotels was such that I would recommend HH to anyone and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
We just returned from a 6 night stay at Harrington Hall in London. We hotel was great and the staff is very helpful, (even before we arrived, we emailed to ask questions and they answered right away) Concereige Leon was the best. The location is a block from the Gloucester Road station and there are many good places to eat within walking distance.
Great Deal and Location
excellent deal with the Gloucester Road Station two blocks away.....plus the bus tours are one block away.....
Outstanding, conventient location. Incredible staff, and the best water pressure in London! Some of the rooms may be a bit on the smallish side, but well-decorated. We stay at this property on business two or three times per year, and will continue to do so whenever possible. The concierge services alone are divine -- had to stay at another property around the corner on one trip last year, and it had horrible service. So, we went to our concierge friend, Nick, at the Harrington, and he took care of us just like we were staying there....talk about customer service and retention!

... the US noticed I was from Australia and started chatting to me. We talked for the whole time in the queue and he opened up about a crazy relationship he was having with his girlfriend whom he sees every few months. Every so often we would repeat complaints about how ridiculously inefficient the customs here was and an Aussie guy behind us joined in our grumbling. Finally though, we all got through and the three of us said goodbye and went our separate ways. After taking so long ...
After a huge breakfast at the YHA - £4.99 for adults and £2.50 for kids all you can eat - we decided to head towards Buckingham Palace to see the Queen. Isabel really did think we would see her.
After we stopped off at the chemist to purchase a hair straightener (oh yes i left mine at home, who does that?) and bonjela for Isabel as she had bit her tongue when she fell off her chair at breakfast (injury number 1), we noticed crowds of ...
... then the most amazing thing happened... a guy in SHORTS (yes in a club) propositioned our Kristy.. and so we had to write her off for the next thirty minutes while they sucked face. So from now on I will sometimes refer to her as calves- a very apt name.
After the club shut down we stumbled our drunken asses out, sung Fresh Prince of Bellaire and took some photos involving some sexy calf action... and then it was time for goodbyes- hopefully we ...
