    A charming and elegant stay in a fine old hotel

    The cooked breakfast. It is a common fault for buffet breakfasts in hotels to be piled high. Serving dishes were piled high here. Sadly, the food gets cold, fried eggs burn, congeal and turn to rubber, bacon becomes hard, etc. This all happened at the Clarendon's breakfast. It was a great pity as breakfast was service in a beautiful dining room. It really let the hotel experience down.

    The hotel is elegant and charming. The staff were approachable and helpful. The room was very comfortable. We spent time in the Chart Bar where the service was great and the ambience soft and gentle.

    Noisy when people returned to their rooms, loud door shutting, standing in the hallway chatting when people trying to sleep! (Not the hotel's fault, although the room doors are old fashioned and loud to shut).

    All staff lovely. Great evening meal, the main was outstanding. Perfect location. Great size room. Comfy bed.

    Rooms to front suffer from road noise through the night, so if you struggle to sleep through continuous road use ask for a room to the rear.

    Very good location and breakfast. Rooms very comfortable and staff very helpful..

    Hotel decor is pretty dated, walls are very thin, drippy drainpipe outside the window was very loud. Quite expensive for what it was, but decent location and cheaper compared to other places closer to the O2.

    Really great location for the O2

    The decor is a bit tired and I found the bed hard. My main problem was the smells. The air in my room was stale, in the corridor it smelt fusty and in the basement bar it smelt damp.

    Very helpful staff and clean hotel. Good breakfast.

    We were at the front of the hotel and it was quite noisy outside.

    Great location with parking. The staff were lovely and very helpful. A very enjoyable breakfast with something for everyone. A very comfortable bed in a spacious room.

    The bathroom was on the small side, there wasn't enough electrical sockets in the room for kettle, charger etc.

    The staff were helpful and the food was delicious (and reasonably priced for London).

    Breakfast staff too eager to take away your breakfast plates and drinks, my wife had a drink of her coffee, then turned back and it had been taken. they seem to want to rush you out too much that its plainley obvious.

    Stayed here 4 times before - great location and great hotel

    Shower a bit small. Breakfast food was a little overcooked. Menu for Pancake Tuesday said Pancakes so we were expecting at least two . Very sad when only one arrived😢

    Loved the location, ease of access to train station.
