Reviewed 10 July 2017

the place is about 10 minutes walk from kings cross station when we arrived we were given keys and told there is a 24 hour service so we could drop them off every time we went out which was very handy. the rooms were great with lovely comfy beds I had a single and my friends had a twin both ensuite. the bathrooms were nice with good showers and rooms have colour tvs, tea and coffee and kettle and there is also a hairdryer in there too. breakfast was continental and delicious and the staff were very polite and helpful. we were also allowed to leave our bags and pick them up when our train home was due which was very nice of them nothing was too much trouble would certainly stay here again!

Room Tip: we had rooms on the third floor and there Is a lift so no problems at all

Got to hotel staff all friendly enough got to room
Room very small and not in very good condition window was half broken kept moving
We asked for a fan as no air what so ever and said they didn't have one
Room all hot all night could hardly sleep

Breakfast - don't get me started no cooking options just toast and cereal me and fiancé were very disappointed never met a hotel who has no cooking breakfast options other half only had toast as doesn't like cereal

Will defiantly not be returning very disappointing

In terms of budget hotels in London this hotel feels safe, clean and the staff are very helpful. The rooms are tight but have everything you need , including a kettle, tea, coffee and biscuits!! Which for London is a real treat. Breakfast is generally included in the price, which is great. The location is good for public transport and its a short walk for places to eat. I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years and have noticed a significant improvement. You could do a lot worse than stay here!

I've stayed in a single room. The room was quite small but it has a comfortable bed and TV. The bathroom was clean although there wasn't any curtains so when I had a shower all the bathroom got wet. The continental breakfast was OK. I think the price was expensive for the single room but overall it was OK

Located near Kings Cross - unfortunately this is the only positive thing to say about Swinton Hotel. Towels were as dirty as the shower. Very little room. No place to store your clothes, no way to close the window properly so it was cold and windy. No clean linnen for the bed. Do not look under the bed: the floor has not seen a vaccum-cleaner for weeks...
