Harlingford Hotel Review

The most contemporary of the hotels around Bloomsbury's Cartwright Gardens offers sleek, quiet, and comfortable bedrooms and perfectly appointed public rooms. With space for four, the quad rooms are a good choice for traveling families. For those who tire of eggs and sausage every morning, breakfast includes a choice of fresh croissants and 10 kinds of cereal.

    BEWARE BEFORE YOU BOOK

    We have stayed at the Harlingford on numerous occasions in the past when travelling to London from New Zealand and have always considered the hotel to be reasonable value and a great location. Because of this, we have chosen to overlook the lumpy hard beds, the noisiness at night from the student accommodation and pub close by and the service performance of the manager, known as ‘Andrew’, which has always been very poor, indifferent or downright rude. We recently booked several nights for our next visit to London in 9 months time and we have always, as per the hotel’s terms and conditions paid in full, in advance at the time of check in. We were very surprised when the hotel, without our knowledge or approval charged 50% of our room rate as a non-refundable deposit to our credit card. When this was queried with the hotel, we got an arrogant, patronising and unprofessional response along with the hotel cancelling our booking. We are very disappointed that the hotel thinks so little of our regular, loyal patronage that they would treat us like this. ‘Andrew’ in responses to other multiple customer complaints on other sites has adopted an attitude of aggression or suggestions of impropriety or fraud against people complaining about the hotel’s performance. I am sure he will respond in kind to this complaint, however, should anyone wishing to view the full content of the email communications between the hotel and ourselves, please contact me via email at joy.gary.browne@xtra.co.nz and I will be happy to oblige. There are other superior hotels nearby at a similar price with management who believe in friendliness and service as a requisite to managing a good hotel business – I strongly recommend you use them.
