The hotel is situated very close to the metro station. But unfortunately this is the only advantage it has. The staff was very rude. My room was too small, the furniture has nothing to do with the pictures shown on the Internet. Don't count on that! The only thing that matched the reality was the price. The wireless that was supposed to be available whithin the entire hotel was not available at all, even in the public areas. And do you know who was to blame for that?- British telecom ! I would definitely not recommend this hotel to business travellers looking forward to a quiet place to relax after the busy day in London !
Tiny rooms, no parking, rude staff

I booked 18 rooms for an exhibition taking place at Earls Court. 11 of these were standard double rooms, and 7 were executive rooms. The standard rooms were tiny, like a shoebox! The executive rooms were the size and standard of a standard room at a regular hotel. I felt ripped off! There was no parking local, and 2 days at an NCP cost £68! Rip off!!!!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Mayflower Hotel

Wonderful Experience at the Mayflower

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed at the Mayflower Hotel in October 2003. Our room was large (by London standards), very clean, with hardwood floors and a modern bathroom w/marble flooring and a large shower. The Mayflower Hotel was also reasonably priced, compared to other hotels, and it has a great location (short walk to the Earl's Court Station and an Internet Cafe).

We did not experience any of the noise from the Tube station as described in other reviews. We did, however, have a bit of street noise, which is to be expected in a large city.

The continental breakfast was nice, but the service was a bit slow.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone who may be visiting London in the future. I know we will be staying there again on our next visit to London.

Postage Stamp rooms; great service

from A TripAdvisor Member
They tried to put us in the basement, but were kind enough to move us when requested (basement rooms are too warm). Rooms the size of postage stamps- my husband and I (slim people) could not manoeveur around the room without climbing on the bed. However, room was very clean- squeaky clean- and location was terrific- although Earl's Court Station is QUITE loud Monday through Friday. Weekend it is not bad at all. The staff were really terrific- helpful and friendly. When we left, the lady at the front desk gave us her card and told us she'd take care of us "next time." We'll probably take her up on it.

Seriously lacking service!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently stayed at this hotel and have to rate it the worst for service I've ever received in London. I booked two seperate stays, the first for 2 nights and the second for 4 nights. While at first glance the hotel has the "wow" factor, and the price is reasonable, this is completely offset by the surly and rude mannered staff. The few requests I made were met with indifference and always "No". No late check out available, No fan available for the room, No early breakfast allowed (15mins before normal start time..).. I give up, if you want service stay some where else.. there are a lot of decent hotels in the area.

Fine for London

from A TripAdvisor Member
A great experience for our first time in London (but not UK). Rooms are small but clean; but then for the rates you pay in London, I guess its acceptable. Breakfast is also acceptable but the limitation in space and staff resulted in slow service.

If you're a light sleeper, I guess you won't be able to go to bed before midnight due to the trains running on the rear of the building.

Despite the above, recommended if you're on a tight budget but who isn't if you're in London...

beware of the apartments

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Mayflower hotel for one night in June 2004. We were directed there by the sister hotel (Twenty Nevern Square), which was full that night. We had been promised an "upgrade" to an apartment to make up for the inconvenience, but this turned out to be a downgrade with a capital D. The apartments don't look like anything you see on the hotel's website and our apartment didn't even have a phone, nor a hairdryer, nor two towels per person. A sofa was of dubious cleanliness (I wouldn't have touched it), and all the rooms had elements that were clearly new (the doors) or clearly very worn (the carpets, the curtains, the sofa, the chairs). We did not enjoy our stay at all and were glad it was only for a night. I guess the rooms at the hotel are of much better quality.

Enjoyed our stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is very centrally located in a nice area just a short walk from Earls Court Tube station which is on the Picadilly line. The hotel is bright and appears to be newly decorated in a contemporary style. The staff are friendly. The rooms are small but adequate if you don't plan on spending alot of time in the room. They are very clean and the bathrooms are very nice. The continental breakfast is good but the service is not great, during our three night stay the tables were never set for us for breakfast and we felt like we were always following the waitress around asking for something that we needed. Overall a very pleasant stay and I would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Loved our stay!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Last week my brother and I stayed at the Mayflower Hotel in London. The hotel was surprisingly good! Last year we had a complete different expierence visiting an other London hotel.
Yes, the Mayflower rooms are quit smal, and you can hear the undergroud, because Earl's Court Station is situated right behind the hotel (which to me is great, you don't have to walk very far carrying your bags and suitcase). But what do you expect? You're staying in a metropole, not in a little village. The service was very good, the rooms were clean, service was excellent. Everything in the hotel (not in the appartment at Warwick Road) was renovated. The continental breakfast was good. I will certainly recommend this hotel to friends who want to visit London!

good price for London hotel but.....

from jenme
London is an expensive town to stay I was thrilled when I stumbled across the Mayflower Hotel on the internet. The web site looked great, the photos showed a selection of tastefully decorated, modern rooms, and the rates were perfect. Well as they say, buyer beware. The public rooms at the hotel were fine. And my mom and dad ended up scoring a large, spacious room at the back of the building.
But my fiance and I..we weren't so lucky. Our first room was a walk-in closet w/ bathroom. There was hardly enough room for our two suitcases.
I've traveled a lot overseas and I know that room sizes are not the same as they are in the states...but this was microscopic. We requested a change of rooms and they offered us an apartment about a block or so down the road. The apartment was not impressive (but it was spacious).
Then they offered us another room back at the hotel. We decided to take it although it was not much bigger than our original room and it had zero air circulation. Bottom line, if you do book at the Mayflower and you are travling with more than one person, be sure to specify that you want a large room with a large bed.

A Great Experience

from Jennifer35
Our family (2 adults and a 2 year old) stayed in one of Mayflower's 2 bedroom apartments in the townhouse next to the hotel for 3 days. We had a very positive experience. Although I reserved a 1 bedroom apartment, we were given a 2 bedroom, 2 bath at no extra charge. It had been recently renovated with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The hotel and apartments are located in Earl's Court which is not the most beautiful section of London, but well located, on a quiet street, 3 minute walk to the underground station and a 5 minute walk to the Super Tesco (a large grocery store) which is open 24 hours. Absolutely perfect for a family exploring London. We didn't need much from the staff, but they were personable and attentive when we needed them.

Excellent Value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Ended up staying here by default as their sister hotel, the New Linden was overbooked. Was a little annoyed at first as we arrived at 10pm to be told we were being transferred and knew nothing about the Mayflower. However, we were very pleasantly surprised, very clean, wooden floors, lovely shower/wc, , nice staff. Just round the corner from Earls Court tube station - slight drawback as we had a room at the back and you can hear the trains quite clearly but not a big problem. Small room but I think this is par for the course for London hotels in this price range and breakfast wasn't luxurious but perfectly adequate. Would definitely stay here again.

Top Local Tips for London

MUSEUMS GREATEST VALUE ON THE PLANET Atll the museums are fantastic so much to see and for free
