Stayed there May 2016 for the Chelsea Flower show. Very nice and stylish room in convenient location off tube line.The breakfasts were fabulous and Lila's attention to every detail, warm hospitality and conversation in the mornings was a lovely way to start the day. We really appreciated that she remembered our preferences and treated us like old regulars. Looking forward...

Stayed here Saturday night for an evening engagement nearby. Peaceful and very pleasant - the staff are attentive and the rooms excellent. I stayed in the Garden Room and had my own private outdoors area, great for smoking. Bathroom was very spacious and the bed comfortable. Would happily stay here again!

Another little Ta gem uncovered. Wandsworth is a lovely little town, and the Hotel is situated directly across the road from the tube station so great for access to London or the Rugby. This is a cosy pub hotel, rooms are nicely appointed, staff are attentive and the breakfast is very ice indeed. Pub can get very busy at weekends....

This is an old pub and the hotel is attached to the rear. There is no lift but the rooms are well appointed and very clean. The menu is very good and the service is polite and friendly. The old fashioned pub is a step back into the past. It is well situated opposite Wandsworth Town Station.

Recently while visiting Wandsworth to visit a family member we called in to the Alma Hotel initially for a drink but ended up having an evening meal there. The service was very friendly and excellent overall. The three of us had fish which was very nice and good value.

I stay at the Alma regularly for business and pleasure. The rooms are stylish, comfortable and a generous size for London. The hotel is well connected for central London just across the road from Wandsworth Town Station with trains running to Clapham Common, Vauxhall and Waterloo. Staff are friendly and breakfast is always a treat. Hotel rooms adjoin the Alma...
