Grange Rochester Hotel London Reviews
Grange Rochester Mar 16, 2011
HoldThe Grange Rochester Hotel is in Victoria, not far from Westminster. It is housed in a great location for tourists, and about an hour's walk from where I work (which I tend to view as a positive - I can take the tube if I'm tired, but an hour is a good distance for a morning's exercise). It is housed in a pleasant, town-house type building in a quiet part of town and is very close to several tube stations.
The staff were polite and helpful. There is even a doorman, which is a nice touch. The room was a good size for central London and I found the beds really comfortable. There is a bath in the bathroom (not universal in that price range in London) and everything was clean. Breakfast was very good and fresh. They even left a copy of The Independent (note for non-Brits - a decent newspaper, not a tabloid, pitching itself at roughly speaking the middle of the political spectrum) outside every room for free, which is a nice touch even if you don't read papers. There are a couple of really pleasant looking lounges. My only tiny criticism is that like many London hotels, particularly in nice old buildings, the rooms are hot. They have provided fans, which helps. I don't think this hotel would be good if you were in a wheelchair - I couldn't see a
ramp - but I might be wrong. I really enjoyed this stay and hope I can stay there again.
