Oasis of calm in London”

We found St Katharine Hotel by chance for a one-night stay in London. We were travelling with kids and needed a place which is close to City as well as where we could park our car. The hotel exceeded our expectations. We had one of the largest apartment in the Hotel, which was beautiful and clean. The hotel itself was so calm in-juxtaposition with the hustle of London. We would love to come back for a longer stay this time.

Excellent value, will definitely be returning!”

We came up to London for the weekend to visit relatives who live in nearby Wapping. We stayed for one night in a superior twin garden room. The size and layout of the room was really impressive and the standard of cleanliness excellent. Very tasteful furnishings (everything seemed brand new….maybe it was!) Continental breakfast was superb, same standard as any high street 4/5 star hotel. Fresh fruit salad, berry compote, greek yoghurt, porridge, cereals plus good choice of bread and pastries. We particularly liked the bowls of dried fruit and nuts on offer so you could make up your own bespoke granola! Also plenty of choice on cold meats, cheeses and boiled eggs should you require a more substantial breakfast. If you’re not going to miss having a TV in your room and don’t require any fancy hotel facilities then I can’t recommend this place highly enough! The price was almost a third less than we usually pay to stay in London. Just one small thing, although there are plenty of towels and spare bedding in the room the only toiletry supplied was liquid soap from a wall dispenser, so probably nicer to bring your own!

Simply the best hotel in East London”

For peace, comfort, hospitality, congeniality and tranquillity, St Katherine's cannot be bettered. Don't arrive expecting to find a bar, a sing-along or a television, for you won't find them. However, at the end of your stay, you will almost certainly feel refreshed and reinvigorated and have a sense of regret to be leaving.

Wished I could have stayed longer”

Relaxed atmosphere, helpful and friendly front desk staff, comfortable room with great bathroom

It was my first visit to England and I only had the late afternoon and evening in London before heading up north the following day. I asked the front desk staff for his suggestion on how to best use my time to experience some of London. He suggested taking the Thames River walk from the hotel towards Tower Bridge. I did so and had a wonderful time. I would have loved to have spent more than 1 night at The Royal Foundation of St Katherine. The atmosphere was very enjoyable and I would have liked to make use of the lounge, garden, chapel and other areas. My room was very comfortable. I did have one disturbing incident with the air con spurting water on me as I slept despite it not having been used. I reported it to the staff the following morning and they were very apologetic and concerned as they had had all the air conditioners seen to just recently. As I didn't stay another night, I can't report on the effectiveness of their maintenance personnel. One other problem was that my room faced the street with a pedestrian crossing. I was introduced to the very loud and annoying beeping that British pedestrian crossings produce. Fortunately, earplugs solved that problem when I slept. The breakfast in the dinning room was good.

A great place to relax handy to central London”

This establishment really exceeded my expectations in terms of facilities and location. Set in a peaceful and historical environment (complete with squirrels in the centre courtyard!), and just 3 minutes from the light rail only two stops to Bank. The room was extremely clean and well appointed, and the staff all very helpful. The breakfast was buffet style in a large dining room, and had all I could ask for. The comfortable lounge/reading area was also a great place to unwind. Yurt café was just around from the front. Would definitely recommend St Katharines to anyone visiting or sightseeing London.
