Swinton Hotel Reviews page 3
The Swinton Hotel is a basic accommodation for a 2 star hotel in Central London. The room's very small - just a double bed and a set of wardrobes and not much space to move. Has a tea making facility. Bathroom okay, nice shower, but washbasin very small and faulty. Rooms and hotel need upgrading. They're dull and dreary. However, as you only stay in the room to sleep, you pay for what you get. Would consider a slightly better accommodation if booking again, but depends on price. This type of hotel serves a purpose for a few days stay at a lower price range for London. The hotel seems to cater for mainly young foreign students.
A spotlessly clean hotel. I will book Swinton Hotel again. But I wish there was a bedside light
I booked this hotel without worrying about other people's reviews, however my other half did read a few, so wasn't expecting much! Overall it's fine for 1 or 2 nights stay with a great central location in London. We found the hike from kings cross station to the hotel and back a bit much after walking round town all day, so wouldn't really recommend to anyone with walking difficulties! The rooms could be a lot more attractive with a bit of filler and a lick of paint, also if the cleaners were to clean the mould off from around the windows! All in all comfortable enough though. Don't expect a lie in though, as we found walls very thin and were constantly woken up in the morning, by what I presume was the cleaner banging about as I believe we were the only people staying on the 3rd floor. Reception were helpful, and luggage room was located behind the reception and locked, so peace of mind there! So all in all, not bad, reasonably priced, good for a one night stay, and in central London
The customer service at Swinton Hotel was excellent and the facilities satisfactory. The staff were friendly and helpful when asked about local places to dine and visit and the room was clean and warm. A lovely hotel in my opinion
Good location if you are catching the Eurostar. Room was okay for a short stay as the room and bathroom were both tiny but clean. Breakfast was okay but the room it was served in was a bit cramped
Very nice little hotel in London, close to Kings Cross. Good location, clean rooms with good shower, TV, tea/coffee and biscuits, and hairdryer - all working! Staff very helpful, open 24 hours with intercom/buzzer system, taxi driver told me area safe on an evening! Continental breakfast with good quality branded food, no complaints, good value for money
The Swinton Hotel had a very good breakfast, but a small bathroom makes this a 4-rating. Overall satisfied with this stay in a quiet street.
I fell in love with the Swinton hotel. The room is small but cozy and is good value for money. I am not satisfied with the internet connection though, too slow.
Friendly staff; clean rooms; small rooms - but all you need (including hair dryer); good continental breakfast. We'll book Swinton Hotel again
Positive points: the room itself was very adequate and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was nice. Negative points: the reception area was shabby. Not a fault of the hotel but I would not recommend this area for female travellers needing to walk back to hotel at night
