Expert review of B+B Belgravia

A handsome townhouse b&b, rather chic and modern, but with rooms at decent prices.

I like the chic, spacious and well-equipped interior of B+B Belgravia. From the outside, it doesn’t look much different from its many competitors on this street, but it's good quality for the price.

Location: 

Ebury Street is a quiet road among the posh squares and mews of Belgravia, one of London’s richer neighbourhoods. It’s an easy walk from the horrid road that joins Victoria Coach Station to Victoria rail and Underground station, but feels like a different city when you’re here - somewhere more gracious and refined. After all, Buckingham Palace and the Royal Parks are only a short walk north, Sloane Square and the posh shops of Chelsea and Knightsbridge not far west.

Bedrooms: 

In nos.64 and 66 Ebury Road, the rooms are almost all doubles, nine with ziplock beds that can be split into twins. Most have a shower, but no bath, but all have flatscreen TVs and Wi-Fi. Nos.1 and 5 are family rooms (no.5 backs on to the garden) and nos.10 and 11 interconnect. Room 2 has no exterior windows - reduced rates are often offered for this room.

In no.82 Ebury Road, a few doors down, there are studio rooms of different sizes with fridge, microwave and toaster for making your own snacks. Five of the studios have a bath as well as a shower. You check in for no.82 at the main hotel building at nos.64 and 66.

Public areas: 

The hotel is made up of three Georgian townhouses on a smart terrace. From the outside, you can see why they’re Grade II-listed, but the public areas on the ground floor of nos.64 and 66 are much more modern and extensive than you might expect. The lounge at the front, where there’s handsome black-and-white tiling, a hearth fire, TV with DVD and an internet workstation for those without Wi-Fi, runs into the breakfast room at the back. It’s all furnished in a smart contemporary style, more like a boutique hotel than most London b&bs. There’s no lift in any of the three houses, mind you. You can browse newspapers or books, and make yourself a hot drink with biscuits at any time. There’s also a rear walled garden, with tables and chairs, but it seems a little gloomy to me, with dark chippings rather than a lawn.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is included, with cereal, yoghurt, pastries and fruit on offer. Full English can be cooked for you. It’s served in the bright breakfast room from 7.30-10am (8-10.30am Sundays).

The studios in no.82 have pastries, jam, cheese and juice delivered for the continental breakfast (included in the price) each evening. Tea, coffee, cereal and milk are already in the kitchen areas.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a bicycle you can borrow, should you wish.

Service: 

Approachable and straightforward.

Who stays there: 

Lots of leisure custom, with most of the guests at the older end of the scale on my last visit - perhaps attracted to the genteel location.

Price advice: 

Room rates include VAT and breakfast. Room 2 on the basement floor is often cheaper, because it has no external windows.

Pros: 
Handsome public areas
Genteel location
Cons: 
Not a location for nightlife
No lift
