    Where do I start to describe this place????
    I will start by saying that the room was indeed clean, and the location was excellent. Good thing that we were not in it that much and only needed a place to hang out hat each night on our trip to London.

    The reception area was nothing more than a dilapidated desk and torn leather office chair. The staff seemed helpful enough but there was not many services / ammenities to offer.

    The room itself as stated was clean. An oddity was that the toilet and the shower were in the same small enclosure. Imgaine a cruise ship but much smaller (see picture). The sink was actually outside this small room. I understand that this B&B hotel is an old Victorian house. I guess I was just expecting something a little more for the money.

    In fact I could have got more for the money if we were further outside London. In this case you are definitely paying for the location. Not much else.

    Unique Quality: A very light breakfast is included in the room rate. You eat at picnic style tables with other hotel guests.

    No elevators. We had to walk up many flights of stairs with luggage.

    Directions: 1/2 block from Earl's Court Tube Station

    We stayed at this nice little hotel in a double room with bathroom which looked like an aircraft bathroomcabin but the room was clean and spacious, the location on Earl's Court was fantastic and the people were nice.

good hotel, friendly staff

by A TripAdvisor Member

We have stayed in the Windsor House Hotel with 2 schoolgroups for the 3rd year in succesion. The rooms are not very big, but they are very clean and not very expensive. The hotel is very close to underground station Earls Court. The staff is super friendly and nice to talk to. I had some very good conversations over there! See you next year!

We stay there each February and are very happy!

by A TripAdvisor Member

My sister and I stay there each February when visiting London and find the Windsor House Hotel a very convenient place to stay with clean facilities and very friendly service. Breakfast is great too and will go back there anytime again.
Thanks to all the staff of Windsor House for making our stay there so great!!

clean but thats all i can say good

by TripAdvisor Member Bruce_Samson

My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights early june 05. I have been to many countries and am no stranger to "culture shock". When booked, yes it was well stated that this was a budget hotel and it certainly lives up to its name of such. Let me say first that it is extremely clean and close to subway which was nice (though noisy). No question about it. Our email stated that we would be on the first or second floor, when we got there we were in the loft with the pidgeons. Makes me wonder how many people who are not 18 year olds have had heart attacks on those narrow steps up 8 flights of stairs. We arrived after the banks were closed and in between the time we arrived and 9am the next morning we were asked no less than 4 times for full payment. I offered to pay with credit card and was told that cash was only accepted.
The only thing the staff didnt do was hold my wife hostage until it was paid at 9am when the bank opened. As for the breakfast, i'm again well versed in english and continental cuisine but out of 3 days we had an egg ONCE. This was due to the fact that they had a gas leak and they had no cooking facilities...and hense for 1/2 our visit no hot water for even a shower.
the gas workers repairing said it was in the building but in an email from the owner (who we never did meet) said it was out in the street, who to believe. The staff did not seem anxious to allow us to use the kitchen when we asked if we could warm up some chicken from the deli next door. They said the stove was gas (which was off) and the owner said in an email that the stove was operational. If thats the case why no eggs then?? Can they not do anything but boil them?? I would not recommend this hotel nor stay there again.

Clean, comfortable ideal location hotel.

by TripAdvisor Member carberrya

My partner and myself stayed at this hotel july 2005.
It is cheap, clean, beds comfortable, showers excellent, hot running water at all times, staff very polite and helpful. Towel change and bed made every morning. You have use of the garden and patio which was great for us to sit and read morning papers with a coffee. Breakfast is cereal, eggs, toast, jam, marmalade, and unlimited tea and coffee. You can use the kitchen between 9A.M. AND 10.30P.M. which is great for people on a budget or with children. You can store your drinks and things in the fridge (NOTHING WENT MISSING). It is in the first road next to Earls Court train station which is great for travelling to see all the london (TRAVEL TICKETS £4.60 AN ADULT FOR UNLIMITED ALL-DAY-TRAVEL).
We would recommend this hotel to anybody!!!!!!
Especially those with children.
We have stayed at world famous hotels and never been treated or enjoyed our time as much as this.
WE WILL BE STAYING THERE AGAIN.

Comfortable, Clean & Friendly Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member bluerickm

NOt the Cheapest in the area, and by far not the most expensive hotel.
I stayed there with my family - 3 kids, 3, 6 and 10 years old, recently over the Whitson Bank Holiday weekend.
Location was EXCELLENT, just around the corner from a tube station.
The room was clean, well laid out and was just waht we need ed for a couple of days stay, it wasn't huge, but if you want that, pay double your money and stay in the Holiday Inn.
The staff were friendly and helpfull with local directions, guidance.
I liked the do it yourself kitchen in the morning, and the very cosmopolitan feel to the place, we had Chinese cooks, sat next to people from Canada and Australia for our first bfast, then Germany, France and Oz on the second day...the kids were very impressed with the different accents!
We would go back again!

What A Rip-Off!!!

by TripAdvisor Member AngelinaJolie

This hotel is proof that you should not believe everything you read on the internet!

We stayed here in December 2004, 3 people (1 female, 2 male) for 3 nights on a bed and breakfast basis and this is my observation:

1: We booked a en-suite room, but we got a room with shower and basin, but the toilet was in the hallway.

2: The shower we had was so small you couldn't close the door behind you, so if you dropped the soap - no way of getting it back unles you step out of the shower - both men could'nt even close the doors once inside the shower.

3: There was no "garden" as claimed and our room viewed over the kitchen's rubbish bins.

4: Breakfast was NOT what we expected:
We got a HUGE plate of old, hard toast, one boiled egg and a Jug of Coffee, this all happened downstairs in the "dungeon" a.k.a - breakfast room.

Atleast we were not the only one's who felt done-in - the breakfast room was filled with disatisfied faces.

On the plus side: There is a Burger King very close to the hotel, so rather have breakfast there. The "hotel" is very close to Earls Court Station & rooms were clean.

I WILL NEVER, NEVER, NEVER RECOMMEND TO ANYONE, NOT EVEN A MOTHER-IN-LAW!

Great hotel for students

by A TripAdvisor Member

I have stayed with a group of students at this hotel for a few years in a row.
Staff has always been very helpful, the rates are affordable, breakfast is ok, location is ideal. Good e-mail contact with the hotel.
In other words ideal for school groups.
