Beautifully restored architecture

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: Architecture and Style
Cons: See the detail about experience above. More Lighting, door knobs, mirrors in rooms
Location: Great location to four underground stations and to three train stations - Eurostar, King Cross and London Euston a few blocks from there
Lack of proper lighting in the room, dated door knobs hard to open, no way to do your hair, to dry or style in front of a mirror; conveniences not up to par with the class of the hotel

Excellent and convenient for St Pancras station

Posted Apr 20, 2014
Pros: All aspects of the stay were good
Cons: Nothing of note
Location: As above excellent location for us and easy walk (30mins) to either Oxford Street for shopping or the West End for a show, or short bus ride
The hotel staff were very welcoming, we were upgraded into a very nice room and had a good nights sleep on a very comfortable bed. The hotel is very convenient for us as we arrive at St Pancras station, drop off our bags and then are free to explore London or see a show. The price was good compared to another hotel we are used to staying at in Kensington which is less central

Disappointment at a high price

Posted Mar 31, 2014
Pros: The location is good . This is a heritage hotel and I was prepared to pay to stay there. The staff apart from the door staff, were attentative
Cons: An apprecitaion that people who arrive at a station hotel do not get a taxi to the front door! A hot breakfast! Greater choice at breakfast.
Location: Location is good because of access to transport, underground, airport and intercity and international train
I arrived on foot having come by train. The hotel is at a major train station and within walking distance of 2 others.. No one met me at the door despite there being several door men present. No one assissted be with my luggage.( I am female and over 60). I was looked at as if I were a refugee from some lower class world. I had to wait 15minutes or more to get to the reception desk as all the reception staff were busy. The room wasn't ready at 1pm. Check in time , i was told was 4pm!. Everywhere else I have stayed it is 2 pm. At check in I was not given any information about where hotel fascilities were located. I tried to have dinner in the cheaper of their two restaurants. ( I nevr found the other one ). I could see that there were empty tables. It was fairly busy with lots of groups. I couldn't get a table. I had the distinct that they weren't prepared to give me a table as I was a single person. I went back to my room and ordered from the same menu on room service. The meal arrived promptly. The steak was so tough iI could not cut it with the knife supplied. The rest of the meal was good. The next morning I went to breakfast ot the same restaurant. It was a buffet. Not really 5 star standard, as limited choice. Biggest issue was that the hot food was not quite luke warm. There was no egg chef or ability to order eggs done as desired, Just a tray of slightly warm scrambed eggs. I left early and I will not return!

Elegant hotel at the train station

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Pros: Everything. The Kings Cross station is convenient for the tube, the train to Paris, and even the food available.
Cons: Bring down the exorbitant price for breakfast.
Location: The British Library is just around the corner.
The St. Pancras is elegant, friendly, and convenient. Can't wait to return.

Great location - and architectural genius

Posted Feb 17, 2014
Booked this hotel after walking past it for 40 years- the restoration of this amazing cathedral in brick and cast iron has been faultlessly done, and the result is a grandeur that no other hotel I have stayed in can match. Beds , bathrooms and housekeeping were faultless and we signed up to the club upgrade that really worked out well for us - light meals drinks and a great buffet breakfast served in a private club lounge . The only negative was the curtains. ; the ceilings were so high you could not pull them , so street lights permeated the room at night - but we were so bushed we hardly noticed. Great character hotel with staff and services to match

Utter ripoff

Posted Feb 13, 2014
Pros: The building
Cons: The attitude
An inflated room rate price compounded by their expectation that I pay even more for an internet connection.
