Hotel was further from Clapham Junction than I expected (walking) but had a friendly reception on arrival. Room is basic and clean with comfortable beds. Good bathroom. Tea making Plus a fridge. Be warned the traffic is quite loud and if you are not used to it - take earplugs with you.

Simple,basic, comfortable, clean. Not a luxury place by any means but a nice place for a very decent price. Clean rooms. Shows broken and no one around to tell. No breakfast but a decent cafe across the road (the common room). Good location next to Clapham South tube. Noisy as next to a busy road but used ear plugs and... More

We stayed here as we were attending a concert on the common. We were met with a very friendly and helpful receptionist, our room was very clean and tidy, upon first impression was a bit on the small side however considering the reasonable cost it is more than adequate. Would certainly stay again if we are local.

Well run hotel in an ideal location, two minutes walk from the tube station and Clapham Common. It was a great base for my travels around London. Clean and comfortable rooms with all the facilities you'd need. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of choice nearby for cafés, shops and bars. I wish they provided breakfast but everything else... More

We reserved a room with booking.com early in the year as I bought my partner a musical ticket. We needed somewhere convenient for driving in to London, tubing in to central London and this was one of the cheaper options. We used JustPark, and the hotel was a 1 minute walk from where we parked the car. It was also... More

I arrived late and I was greeted warmly, given a choice of the available rooms, and felt very well taken care of. The room was clean and well supplied with biscuits, ear plugs and free wifi. Great hotel and very reasonable. It is close to the tube and their is a lovely cafe opposite for breakfast.

Nice reasonably priced place. Not high end but comfortable and clean and situated in quite pretty grounds too. Felt safe and the staff made us feel welcome. This place could not make visiting the city any easier for getting around London if it tried. We were a 2 minute walk away from Clapham South tube station and we had no... More

If your looking for a cheap room for a weekend away this is a good option. There was 3 of us altogether, We stayed in a room for 3 for a 1 night stay. It was very reasonable in price and the rooms & bathrooms we're very clean. A perfect location for anyone visiting friends in Clapham or central London.
