I liked the outlook of the premises. The College offers a very nice breakfast. The Club personnel is friendly. The views from the rooms I have been assigned over my 2-3 visits have usually been rather nonexistent, but stepping out from the hotel makes it all up. The public transport connections are very good if you don't mind walking some...

I stayed here for my birthday weekend and it was dreadful. I was put in the mews and it was a glass box with blinds for sound proofing, I could hear chatting and laughing and I felt very nervous and unsafe. I tried changing rooms and they were booked up. It seemed to me that they left the worse rooms...

HI Hat 422. Sorry to hear your review. Even more perturbed you think we have put you in a terrible room to ruin your birthday. The mews rooms are very secure being in a enclosed courtyard which can only be accessed through our 24 hour reception, they are our most requested rooms by our regulars but its not to all...

I can't believe this is a 4 star hotel! We didn't enjoy our stay. Room 231 @ £130 was cramped with a double bed. The shower had mould in every corner. Staff didn't know the way any where so we had to sort ourselves out. Breakfast in Goodenough College was interesting architecturally, but it was Do It Yourself, there were...

Dear 331 Lesley, Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We are not a four star hotel we are 4 star accredited guest accommodation, being a club and a not for profit organisation. Our prices are very reasonable for central London and breakfast I have fed back already. It can get very busy as anywhere can but...

A lovely listed building in a very quiet area. Food is excellent whether taken in the Club or in the adjacent College. The problem being in the basement was the peace and quiet depended upon those in the above room. For 3 out of our 2 nights it was peaceful but then we had 2 nights where our windows were...

Staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was good value for money and spacious. I had a basement room which was superbly quiet, no traffic noise, hence a good nights sleep. went for the continental breakfast option, though was offered a full breakfast in the college, the continental offering was plentiful and well laid out. I will stay again.

I was taken to the Goodenough club for one nights stay, as a birthday treat, after visiting the theatre. The staff were polite and helpful and we'd been upgraded to the suite. This room was amazing, beautifully decorated and very grand. Our room faced the square with a beautiful outlook. It was clean tidy and the bed was wonderful. Breakfast...

I was in London on business (and some pleasure as well) a while ago and booked this hotel due to its proximity to King's Cross train station, we had a meeting the next day in Stevenage and it was convenient in the sense that we could walk to King's Cross in the morning. Upon arrival it was clear that this...

We stayed in the club last fall. It is quite central and is located in quiet and pretty square. Close to Russel square tube station it is accessible to all key tourist areas. The hotel itself is in an old but well kept building. If you manage to get members rate considering its location it offers good value for money.

Great place to stay I central London - I've stopped here a few times now. The rooms vary a bit (from pokey / seen better days to newish looking / great in the most recently renovated bits), but all in a gorgeous Georgian building. Can have a continental breakfast downstairs, or a good cooked breakfast in the fabulous college hall,...
