GREAT HOTEL!”

I loved everything about this place! Great reception area and the manager was very friendly. Heated floors in the bathroom was a very nice touch. The only thing I wish was provided is a washcloth. Other than that, the hotel is well located, we were able to get straight into our rooms when we arrived and the included coffee and bottled water was a welcomed touch. Very easy check-out as well. Just leave! I will ABSOLUTELY stay here again. Thanks for making a weary traveler feel a more comfortable.

Lovely hotel!”

Very nicely located, clean and the staff are very nice and welcoming. When our first choice of hotel cancelled on us (as we were trying to book in!!!) we came across the Merit Hotel and we lucked out! It has turned out to be a great upgrade - and so conveniently located near Earl’s Court Underground that everywhere is easily accessible. We will be adding this to our list of hotels should we ever need to be back here (which is very likely since it is a very nice hotel!!!).

Super comfy in a gorgeous location!”

We were lucky enough that our room was ready before check in time, concierge was very generous to let us in. We stayed in a Superior room with a door that lead to the garden. Absolutely stunning! The beds were insanely comfortable, shower was incredible and the service was great, complimentary coffee and biscoff were restocked daily. One day quite late at night we couldn’t close the door to the garden and someone came to help within a couple minutes and explained how to do it. Lastly, the location is fab!!! Around the corner from my new fave tube station, Earl’s Court, with a Marks & Spencer in the corner, Boots pharmacy and (great!!) little souvenir shop with fantastic exchange rates (look no further, best rate in London!). District and Picadilly lines right there, easy to go everywhere! Including 40mins to Heathrow with spacious lifts to carry luggage. I will come back to this hotel times and times again! [we didn’t need any extra amenities or services since we spent very little time in the room, only to shower and sleep, which is all you need in a city like London!)

Best in Earls Court”

Newly converted to a very high standard you can tell the owners did not try to cut corners on the materials and fittings used. From the huge TV to the immaculate bathroom and electronic security entry keys everything was perfect and the owners were so helpful and welcoming....... without a doubt the best in Earls Court, strongly recommend it.
