Historical Traveller Reviews of The Mandeville Hotel

Loved the location, loved the hotel!!!

from lisa_a
I have stayed in many london hotels and so far this is the best! We paid £125 room and continental breakfast.
From the moment you walk in the hotel, you can see that everything will be okay. The reception area is very modern and clean. The rooms spotless and due to the refurb everything is brand new. The rooms have a contemporary feel yet are comforting and homely at the same time. The bathrooms are very clean and well equipped with a very good shower and bath.
I went with my freind and we had a twin room, the only thing that I could not understand is that it advertised that the room had a mini bar and it didnt? but this did not matter because we spent quite a lot of our time in the hotel bar (de Vigne), which does a fab Bramble cocktail!!. The bar was very fashionable. Finally the location is spot on. It is in the centre of Marylebone village with lots of little shops and restaurants nearby. It's about five mins walk from Selfridges on Oxford street. Will go back!

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have just returned from a two-night stay at the Mandeville and cannot praise this hotel and its staff enough.

The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The location is perfect – close to Oxford Street as well as some excellent restaurants/bars whilst being quiet and peaceful.

I was due to check out of the hotel on the Thursday when the Terrorist attacks occurred on London Underground. I was by myself, scarred and stranded in London – The hotel provided me with another room straight away at the same price (many hotels were charging three times the normal rate) and the staff went out of their way to find ways to get me home the next day. Without their help this horrendous day would have been even worse.

Definitely one of the best hotels I have stayed in and I would recommend a visit.

Very nice hotel / great location

from ATraveller038
So far it's been the best hotel a stayed in London.

I got a standard room for EUR 180 / night with english beakfast via Thomas Cook.
The hotel is located in a very nice and SAFE neighbourhood with bars, restaurants, etc. near oxford street.
The nearest tube station is Bond Street. And the hotel is about 200 meters from there.
You can also walk from Piccadily circus --> it takes about 15 minutes and it's a nice walk (regent street and oxford street)

The room was nice and, most important, VERY clean. The bath room was also very nice and immaculate (however no bath, just a shower). The bed was great and there's a (small) flat tv on the wall.
However the rooms are very small.

The breakfast was also great , the restaurant and the bar are very designed, very very nice, great atmosphere, staff is pleasant.

Really a good place to stay.

Clean, Friendly, Great Location

from DJGIT
My Fiance and I stayed at the Mandeville the weekend just gone ( 7th May 05) for one night. We both live just outside the centre of town and often stay in London hotels so that we can have a few drinks and not have to drive or get the tube.
I have given The Mandeville an avergae mark for the following reasons.

The room I stayed in was very small, the flat screen TV, whilst a nice piece of hardware, was very small and the picture of below average quality (slight fuzzyness) with only half a dozen channels to choose from (no free movie or sports channels). There was a fridge in the room but no mini bar, which I found odd...perhaps someone forgot to fill the fridge?
There is no parking at the hotel and although you will get a 25% discout at the NCP around the corner at £35 a day its a little steep. You can park on a meter outside the hotel after 6.30pm.
There was no room service menu to talk of and even though I had called down for a couple fo bottles of water, they didn't arrive which was a little disappointing.

All that said, the room was very clean and the decor modern. The bed was extremely comfortable and you could not detect any noise from either inside or outside the hotel. The location is fantastic with lots of very nice bars and restuarants within two minutes, you are also just three minutes from Bond Street tube in the heart of Londons shopping and entertainment areas.

I would recommend this hotel for short stays where you intend to spend most of your time out and about as it is a very nice place to lay your head however, I wouldn't want to spend an awful lot of time in the room as home comforts are few and far between.


Great stay in a lovely hotel 29th March 2005

from charleygirl
My 10 year old daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights (29/3 to 1/4 2005). We loved the hotel. Our room (a twin on the first floor) was gorgeous, and spotlessly clean. Service from all the staff was friendly, efficient and welcoming, especially the staff at breakfast.
Our deal included continental breakfast, which was first class, with a wide choice of breads, cheeses, meat, fresh fruit, muffins, juices, toast..... A lovely start to the day.
The hotel location cannot be faulted, especially if, like us, you want to spend time on Oxford Street. The tube (Bond Street) is very close which made access to other sights (Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, London Eye, Harrods etc) very easy.
Access to and from Kings Cross main line Station was easy as we opted for a taxi - didn't fancy taking suitcases on the tube! This cost £7 one way and £8 the other, so not too bad.
The whole area has a lovely atmosphere - very continental, with pavement cafes and exotic restaurants ranging from very casual to very formal. Lebanese and Turkish cuisine feature highly in the area.
Selfridges is just up the road, and well worth a visit.
Overall, an excellent hotel where we spent a lovely few days. I shall certainly look at this hotel first when I next plan our next trip to London.

Very impressive hotel

from LittleBee1511
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mandeville and highly recommend it.

Although there were some building works taking place in the lobby during our stay, it wasn't noticeable once you reached reception.

The rooms were immaculate and we loved the comfortable bed, flat screen tv and the marble bathroom. The staff were also extremely helpful.

It is 2 minutes walk from busy Oxford Street, particularly Selfridges and very close to Bond Street tube station. There are also lots of nice restaurants close to the hotel.

Favourite London Hotel

from Canalhouse
We travel to London every year for Christmas shopping and this year we tried the Mandeville Hotel. I had read the different reviews and was hoping for a room in the " new section " and I was certainly not disappointed. The room was beautifully furnished with every amenity that we personally required , yes a little small but this is London and with so much to see and do we do not spend a great deal of time in our room.
Although there was building work taking place during our stay we were not disturbed by noise at all , just a little diversion here and there on entering and leaving. I think therefore that all rooms will be renovated very soon.

Each and every member of staff whom we encountered was exceptionally friendly and courteous .

Location excellent for shopping, we will certainly be returning in the future .

Strange Showers, but Good Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
Concierge --> Very nice and willing to help.
Maid Service --> I found it a bit strange that they come in to clean at random times of the day (morning/ noon or night).
Room Service --> Lovely.
Rooms --> I usually stay in the one bedroom rooms... which are quite small if you are used to American standards. With that said, it is very cute.

**One thing in particular that I Must comment on is the showers. I couldn't understand where the other half of the door went. I kept wondering how I was ever to block water from getting on the floor.

Overall, I'd say it's a lovely stay that is close to everything. Whether you wish to walk or take public transportation.


from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at this hotel in Feb.2004. I think that some of the confusion regarding the hotels amenities is due to the hotel having a "newer" guest wing. I stumbled onto this fact while lost and searching for my room. It appeared that I had received an upgrade without asking! I stayed in the new section of the hotel and found it very nice. The room was very clean and the hotel staff friendly and helpful. I would suggest asking for the new rooms when booking.

ve stayed in....

from A TripAdvisor Member
The location is very good. For shopping, Selfridges and the craziness of Oxford Street is just around the corner and for snacks/dinner you can't beat St Christopher's Place and the many restaurants and cafes in the area.

I wasn't wholly impressed by the hotel however. Rooms are very small, it was difficult to find space for my medium sized suitcase. I was staying alone, but don't think it would be at all comfortable for 2 people.

Room decor is nice - lots of lamps around the bed, large cushions, writing desk.

The wardrobe had a terrible smell!! It had a stong sweat-like odour (perhaps this was the wood? Or the previous guest?!) so I was apprehensive about hanging up my own clothes in there.

I would advise against using their "internet tv" service. For GBP5.50 you get 1 hours ineternet access via their tv and a keyboard, but in my case the tv reception wasn't good enough and I "lost" the payment I made.

The reception area is presentable if you have friends who need to meet you there. Reception staff were adequate but I didn't find them particularly friendly (the doorman didn't offer to hail me a cab when I left with my suitcase in a torrential downpour)

I didn't find it a bad place to stay, particularly for the price, but will look for somewhere else next time I go to London.

Top Local Tips for London

metro We took the regular train to and from the airport, and did not take the express. It was much cheaper and was not that much longer of a ride. If you dont mind carrying your luggage I would recommend this, but it might be a problem with heavy bags.

Breakfast included Book on an external website to get continental breakfast included in the rate. The hotel's website doesn't include it, even though it's dearer!

the oldest pubs one of the city's oldest pubs, the Cheshire Cheese is located on Oxford Street. Built in the 1600's it's a fascinating place, and offers great pints.
