Didn’t realise the property was across two locations. We were given a room across the street from reception. Room was below street level and you could hear footsteps people chatting. Room cleanliness etc was good. On the small size but to be expected for London. Breakfast area (also downstairs below reception) was small for the amount of people dining. Great selection of food though.

Don't bother !

Cons: Do yourselves a favour - don't say that this caters for 4 people. Perhaps 3 at a push - but not 4 !!!! Also, you need to fix the shower drains.
Our family of 4 booked a single room for the night. The website said that that room would fit a double and 2 singles. Well it did - just. It was tiny. You to be climb over the 1st single to get to the others. There was no floor space to put the luggage. It was unbelievable and quite frankly a fire trap. On top of that, the drains in the shower didn't work and we had to take short showers to stop it from flooding the room. Finally there was no A/C - it was 31C in London and 4 people were packed into effectively a closet. It was just dreadful !!!

Quaint family run hotel only steps to St Pancras

We stayed here for a couple of nights and it was very nice. Was close to the station whichis why I chose it. Staff very friendly, breakfast was excellent. There is no lift, so be aware if you have trouble with stairs or lots of luggage. Room was comfortable, only downsides were need of air con or a fan to move air as it got hot and stuffy. Second thing was thin walls as we could here the people next door come and go, knocking and banging (luggage?) Into the walls. Would recommend it for the location and yummy breakfast though!
