Editorial review:

This 18th century townhouse Grange Blooms Hotel has been renovated to have the atmosphere of a country home, which is odd due to its location in central London. The hotel used to be the site of the British Museum. The décor comes replete with floral prints, classical music and portraits on the walls of its 38 guest rooms. There is a lovely terrace garden in the back.

            Friendly staff, excellent location in Bloomsbury – convenient for Covent Garden

            No air conditioning, and no fridge in room – unfortunate as we stayed during a very hot weekend. The ceiling fan did help though.

            We thought that the hotel was located in about the most perfect location both for the conference we were attending and for access to theatre, book stores ( no finer location on earth ) and with a relatively easy trip for the shops. Pleasant and helpful staff, a decent room and excellent breakfast.

            We would have appreciated air conditioning as it was initially hot and humid and though the fan helped it was not quite enough.

            The staff is very helpful, very friendly. We stayed only for one night but they made a great impression.

            The room was very hot, though it's coldish early spring (end of Feb) the room's heater was off still very hot. Not much air we have to open the room window most of the night.

            The room service was prompt and the reception staff were excellent. The room was clean and well set out.

            The outlook of the room was onto building/repair works in the un kept garden area. The breakfast staff were useless-had to ask for milk for the coffee 3 times and didnt get it. We were questioned about breakfast booking and told there was no room for us (we had booked) we were made to feel unwelcome and breakfast was expensive for what we got. The boiler broke down and we were not able to use the shower in the morning-we paid over £100 a night and had no hot water!

              6.2
          • Couple

            The staff were very helpful and the hotel was ideally located for shopping and nightlife.

            The room itself was OK as it had everything but it was very small and felt cramped. It was fine for a night but wouldnt have wanted to stay any longer as there wasnt really enough room to put your cases down. It was also very difficult to regulate the heating, grateful that we were able to open the window and seeing as the room was at the rear of the hotel, it wasnt that noisy.

            The location - quiet and convenient (but please also read separate 'complaint')

            Bed was a 4 poster, but very squeaky, to the point that it woke us up each time we turned over in bed (also: please see seperate general complaint about this booking).

          • Family with children

            The room was not airconditioned. There was a ceiling fan but the bed had a canopy so the ceiling fan was useless. One of the windows did not open. The extra bed was extremely uncomfortable.
