In pleasant, peaceful area - Bloomsbury, London.Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: Good location. Very near to Euston station, but in a nice and (seemingly) safe area of London. Very good breakfasts! Nice room, staff & food.
Cons: Double bed by wall - clambering over other person to get in and out of bed. No bedside table/s or rack in bathroom for toiletries. Sink plug broken.
Location: Choice of restaurants, bistros, pubs, just a few minutes away. Two bookshops.
Hotel is on corner of two streets - very nice and welcoming from outside. Nice area. Pleasant and helpful staff. Was given a ground floor room, to assist me as I have mobility problems. Room and shower - clean but basic. A small amount of money spent on the bedrooms would make it a much better experience for guests. But visit finished on annoying note. Asked for a taxi to be booked to take us to Euston station. What arrived was not a taxi but a plush, private cab/car - with no meter to see the fare. At Euston I was informed the fee was a flat £10, whereas the black cab from Euston to the hotel had been only £6. - I asked for a taxi and I would have liked a taxi - and not a private cab which would charge me extra for using it. - Next time I will ensure that I get what I want and check the fare beforehand!

very very small room.Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: SITUATION CLOSE TO THE BRITISH MUSEUM library, and other facilities --- underground, shopping centre , train stations
Cons: Larger rooms with bilateral bedside tables. Tissues in room More seats --only one chair Better kettle --too short cable used dustbin for heigt
Location: Convient for underground shops surface rail -euston and kings cross and parks
Staff very friendly and helpful but facilities poor -- no lounge or common room to relax, no bar, no where to meet guests, no hand towels I would recommend it to a friend but with reservations as above. Clean hotel but with basic facilities

Difficult to find.Posted May 26, 2014
When a London cab driver doesn't know where your hotel is located, that's never a good sign. It's relatively inexpensive compared to other London hotels, but you do get what you pay for.

Great location close to Kings CrossPosted Apr 30, 2014
For the price the hotel was very good. While small like most London hotels, it was very clean. Would stay again.

Convenient overnight stay - comfortable bedPosted Apr 30, 2014
Pros: Location and comfortable bed
Cons: Towel rail in bathroom would have been good and electric socket near shelf would have been helpful.
Location: Close to Kings Cross but on a quieter street than the main roads.
Friendly staff. Room small but clean. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom clean but basic - but had everything you needed. Would stay there again. Felt safe and was fine for a business overnight.

Leigh House HotelPosted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: It was 2 minutes in the car from St Pancras
Cons: The staff must be mor customer focussed
Location: Close to Kings Cross and St Pancras
We arrived after 9pm. They clearly knew I had a child with me but they chose to put us on the very top floor. This meant I had to take my child up, then return to collect my suitcases and take them up too. There were no lifts and the staff did not offer to help. The clocks were going forward that Sunday morning so just to make sure we catch our train I asked for an early morning call. They forgot! Thankfully we woke up anyway. Dreadful experience, waste of ninety-nine pounds. I shouldn't have bothered and won't be using Expedia again

Lovely B&BPosted Jan 16, 2014
Pros: Continued... The room was clean and nicely decorated and the shower was probably the best I've seen in a hotel/B&B.
Cons: -Plug sockets in a bit of an inconvenient location - I'd consider putting in an extension lead so that they are next to the bed.
Location: Very close to Euston, the British Museum, British Library, etc. Absolutely ideal for conferences (like mine) in the University.
First, the bad: -The room was small -Lots of stairs -The plug sockets were in a bit of an inconvenient location -The toilet didn't have much sound-proofing which is uncomfortable if you're staying with a partner (and either of you are prudish)... I've tried to be fair and even here, but it was quite difficult to come up with that list. The truth is, our stay was overwhelmingly positive. The only ones of those that really caused us any irritation were the toilet (because I'm a prude with IBS), and the plug socket location, because I wanted to use the laptop in bed - a problem which could easily be solved by putting in an extension lead. The room was small, but it's London (so to be expected), and it was so well laid out and equipped that this really didn't cause any problem, and was actually nice and cosy. Now, for the positives. The staff were really pleasant and welcoming - from the staff on the desk who were always smiling and seemed genuinely interested in our day, to the staff serving breakfast downstairs. Breakfast, for those who are interested, is served in the basement, and there's a table with the usual cereal, milk, fruit, etc on, but if you want something cooked like a cooked breakfast or toast then the staff cook it for you on the spot - which is a very efficient and nice way of doing things (unlike the wasteful normal way of simply having plates with it on, which often results in flies or the food being cold).

Shouldn't be a hotelPosted Jan 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
When private people run hotels but do it on such a low budget it's time to resign and go and do something else.
