    « Good for one night »

    Very well located, opposite side of Finsbury Park, excellent linked with public transport. Clean and quiet specially if you ask for a quiet room on the opposite side of the road. Although the room is very small even for single, it is clean, cozy and in a way also comfortable. Breakfast is average, serving main dishes for "English breakfast", but I must say the sausages were horrible. Friendly staff.

    « Great hotel, Lovely staff! »

    Have just returned from a six night stay over half term. Absolutely love this hotel-have tried a few others in London, but this is definitely our hotel of choice. Friendly, helpful staff who are always welcoming and accommodating. In particular. the Reception staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them. Rooms are clean and well presented with lovely comfortable beds, and housekeeping maintain high standards throughout. We always request a quiet room as we are light sleepers. Hotel overlooks Finsbury Park and is within walking distance of shops, restaurants and tube stations Always enjoy our stay here and highly recommend!

    « One night stay »

    Excellent location overlooking Finsbury Park and convenient for public transport links. Very friendly and helpful staff, decent size ensuite bedroom, but only a shower, no bath, good value (£7) full English breakfast. Off street car parking was excellent and only £10 for 24 hrs! A real bargain compared to most London hotels. If we needed another stay in this part of London we would definitely stay again.

    « Comfortable and friendly »

    Stayed here when visiting my son the room was comfortable the staff were friendly, my only criticism was the the croissants and pastries were very stale and the same ones were there for the two days we were there. The hotel is convenient for the tube especially if you don't know London very well just straight down the road about a quarter of a mile.

    « Fine hotel »

    A friendly hotel convenient to tube station and bus links.Rooms clean and fresh.Off street parking useful if you need it. Only stayed the one night but would consider for next visit to this part of London.

    « Conveiently placed for tube & bus - with parking. »

    Room was only small but only there to sleep, Nice & clean but towels need renewing. Breakfast was ok but think its the same everyday so may get boring if there for more than a couple of days. Opposite Finsbury Park which is pleasant. Walking distance to Manor House tube & bus stop right outside for other destinations. Handy having parking.

    « Business trip »

    Not bad the the hotel, I did not liked some much the position. Staff was not really prepared and should be schooled better. Room is ok but right on top of the tube rooms.is shaking. Room has no mini bar but offers tea and coffee

    « Good hotel in a convenient location »

    We chose the hotel for the location, as it was near a party we were going to and were very happy with our choice. The room was small, but that isn't unusual in London and it was very clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and it had a decent amount of parking. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you were visiting this area.

    « Recent Stay »

    The Best Western hotel in London Highbury is quite close to two tube stations Manor House and Finsbury Park. Great transport links from Gatwick Airport. Receptionists are excellent very welcoming, attentive and helpful, great customer service. Nothing we asked of them was any trouble. We had booked a room for four adults and a child and we were given an apartment which was fab. The breakfast was good and had a range of hot and cold foods plenty of choice. Short walk to shops,pubs and eateries. The receptionist even stored our luggage for us at the hotel after we had checked out if apartment and we went on a bus tour and went back collected our bags that evening and headed to airport as we had a late flight back. Would definitely come back to stay here.

    « Very pleasant hotel. Well connected for a visit to London »

    I would recommend this hotel warmly for either business or leisure travel. Staff are pleasant and helpful without exception and Peter the manager is always on hand or available on the phone. Rooms are clean and well cared for. Breakfast is great value and offers a wide range of continental and English ranges always kept stocked and freshly prepared available in piping hot Bain Marie's. Big plus also is on site parking at rear of hotel. Now into my 15th stay so I guess that says it all. 1 minute to buses and 5 minutes to Finsbury Park tube station. One downside is slow internet but at least it's free

    « Cold English breakfasts »

    Staff are pleasent and friendly. We stayed for 2 nights, the self serve precooked breakfast was unfortunately cold on the first morning, we commented to make staff aware, second morning a little warm but cold food by the time you plated and seated. The hot food tasted old and we left most of it and turned to continental instead, croissant and pastries were hard & dry and seemed as if from previous day..just avoid the breakfast unless you want toast or cereals. The room satisfactory but a little noisy as guest come in in the evening, you can hear conversations in the next room sometimes, very small TV was a let down, shower very powerful and hot. Parking was good and the Hotel was easy to find. The local area has lots of shops and restaurants, & underground within 5 mins walk, be aware there are of groups of men congrating on streets during evenings which was concerning for my wife. We would stay again but avoid the breakfasts entirely.

    « Small - compact but very comfortable »

    The hotel is quite small with tight areas especially limited in space in the bedrooms, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in service, comfort and warmth. My room was on the ground floor and so was easy to access - the front desk staff were so very helpful and a pleasure to meet. The bedroom was very well decorated and a lovely comfy bed too.

    « Overnight stop in north london »

    We were looking for an overnight stop in north London with car parking to take stuff done to daughter recently moved to near Holloway Road . Great find opposite Finsbury Park safe parking very clean and friendly great shower . Bar available good wifi. Room small but only sleeping in it . Would go back as really good value

    « Would like to stay again. »

    Our two night stay was very pleasant and the staff were very attentive with a good hearty breakfast. Hotel car park was essential for us while we attended a wedding. Finsbury Park provides a tranquil setting with a pedestrian crossing link to the Best Western and not far from underground stations.

    « Ok if visiting nearby »

    This hotel was handy for visiting family. Good points : We were given an apartment at the back instead of the twin room we had booked, so plenty of space. Bed was comfortable. Clean and decent bathroom. Less good was the lack of a kettle, though this was sorted out fairly quickly. Needs a little maintenance as some tiles slightly cracked and one bedside light did not work as there is nowhere to plug it in. Breakfast was not very good, poor quality sausage etc. So overall I wouldn't rush back but it's not bad if you want to stay in this area. Bring earplugs if road noise is an issue.

    « Friendly staff comfortable »

    Stayed for one night .great location for Emirates stadium. Stayed in one of the flats great as have teenage children and they could have their own space. Flats are comfortable and clean . The staff make this hotel they are extremely friendly nothing is too much trouble.was able to check in early and leave the car in the car park the next day for a couple of hours after we had checked out. This is our second stay here. Had a problem with the tv and it was fixed straight away.will stay again.we didn't have breakfast.

    « Great location »

    We stayed for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding, the location is great and easy to find. The rooms are clean only thing there was no air con, breakfast is charged as an extra £7.50 for full English or £5.50 for continental highly recommended if you want somewhere central

    « Good Location With reservations »

    Stayed for two nights in August for my wife's nieces wedding. The location is excellent overlooking Finsbury Park and situated between 2 tube stations with easy access into Central London. There is parking on site which at £20 for two nights was inexpensive. Had booked a double room, but was actually given a Quad Room with a double and two single beds and it was actually an accessible room with a bathroom for a disabled person! However having seen the size of the double rooms this was actually a blessing has they are very small. The room tends to become extremely warm and claustrophobic though you can request and obtain a fan. As a previous reviewer mentioned there is a lot of noise in a morning which tends to be hotel staff created. There is a small bar upstairs which is adequate and reasonable priced though not as advertised in the hotel literature. Breakfast is ok but again not as advertised by the Hotel Manager. Overall as a base to explore London it is a great location and reasonably priced but nothing other than that.

    « Convenience to central London »

    I was visiting London to meet up with my son who has just completed his LLM qualification and has a room in Crouch End. This hotel, chosen from the internet was convenient and advertised an on site car park. I was pleasantly surprised that the car park was as advertised and that the hotel was very pleasant. My stay was enhanced by courteous and helpful staff.

    « Great little hotel »

    Great value small hotel only 20 mins from city or west end by tube. Friendly, helpful staff - clean and comfortable rooms with good showers - all you need for a couple of nights stay in London. Decent breakfast available and pleasant location right opposite Finsbury Park. Have stayed twice now and will definitely be back!

    « Very good »

    This hotel was perfectly situated for us to visit family in Finsbury Park. It is opposite the park, which we walked around for the first time. Rooms were well appointed, and it was very convenient for the tube into central London.

    « Friendly hotel, spotlessly clean, good price and near tube »

    My husband and I had booked a double room at a very reasonable price, however they upgraded us to a superior room since it was available, for the same amount late on a Sunday evening; it was not very big but fine. The hotel was spotlessly clean and had everything needed, white towels, coffee and biscuits etc. Altogether a nice experience; a happy family was celebrating a child's birthday with a cake in the foyer, we were invited to join them if we had wanted to. Council rubbish collection was a bit noisy early morning as the hotel is on a main road. Definitely will be a stop for me, since I have daughters nearby.

    « Pleasant hotel »

    My room at the back of the hotel was comfortable and clean and great for a short stay. It was compact but great for solo traveller.The weather was hot and a fan was provided. The windows opened but the area is noisy and it is impossible to shut out all noise. Breakfast was very good value for money with a wide choice of continental and traditional fare. The bar area is light and airy and service friendly. Car parking was available.

    « Surprisingly good »

    I visited with a colleague for business, chosen booked for us by the company. Very friendly and helpful receptionist who noticed a problem with our bookings that could have caused overcharging and took the trouble to seek clarification and sort this out. My room was a triple with double and single bed. Whilst not big because of the extra bed, still a good size for London. My colleague was upgraded to a suite in an annex which gave her a huge triple room plus a double room. Helpful receptionist helped us find our way around when looking for something to eat. Downside of the hotel is location is not case to eating places. We ended up in a wonderful pub called the Finsbury within walking distance, but we're also offered takeaway menus by the receptionist as well. Small breakfast room with good selection of continental elements, but poor quality cooked items.

    2
    « Noisy and should not advertise soi called "Cooked English Breakfast" »

    Main issue was noise, which was due in part to the Hotel staff themselves. They should NOT advertise the breakfast as a "Full Cooked English Breakfast" - sorry but a bit of toast and some dried out scrambled egg from a pot does not qualify -- there was no apparent offer to actually cook anything at all - it would be fine if cheap, but at £20 for two people for a bit of toast and a few spoon of warm scrambled egg we felt more than a little ripped off. Far better to save your money and walk to a cafe around the corner where £20 will buy a fair bit.

    « Very very noisy »

    Lots of noise. Some traffic, but more importantly massive noise from a party and also the hotel itself (room above breakfast area and we had a blaring breakfast TV wake us at about 7am. Hotel staff at check-out disinterested. I had to present in court a frew hours later after a bad night of sleep. I wonder how long hotels can continue charging high rates for really not such great places in the new age of AirBnB

    « compact & Clean »

    This Hotel is situated on very busy main road, and we happened to choose a night when there was a music event going on in the park across the road, thankfully due to a combination of tiredness and comfortable room slept like a log. Our room was in the basement adjacent to the main road so if 24/7 traffic bothers you ask for a room at the rear , that aside you will be hard pushed to find a better compact Hotel in this area, by the way they have a car park (additional charge) essential if you are driving.

    « Reasonably priced hotel. »

    This hotel is handy if you have a car as there is parking for £10 a day. It is on a good bus route, straight to King's Cross. Staff are friendly. Breakfast is very average however. It's clean and good value for London.

    « Fantastic staff, comfortable room »

    We stayed for two nights fo a wedding. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Our room was in the new wing out the back, it was very comfortable, there was a fan which did keep the room cooler as it was very warm. Excellent shower Loved the complimentary bottles of water. Good breakfast plenty of choice.

    3
    « Comfortable and affordable »

    A good value, and if you don't mind a ten minute walk to the Tube--with access to all of London-- a nice choice (money wise) when it comes to London hotels. We stayed in a large apartment in the back. It was very quiet and peaceful (despite the busy Seven Sisters Road out front). Housekeeping is very good--coffee and soap and towels all fully renewed every day. Be careful with kids and the hot water. It is very, very hot! Bottom line: good value.

    « Weekend visit »

    Stayed at the rear,2nd floor. Small double room but very clean with good shower facilities. Friendly and helpful staff. Never ate in the hotel but looked clean And pleasant enough. The full hotel was overall clean and pleasant, if It's dirty or smells of damp etc,I'll walk,but this was an enjoyable stay,close to the tube station with good access to London. Safe cheap parking was a bonus.I thought the local area seemed fine and safe enough to walk the 5 minuits to the tube.

    « One night stay... Comfortable »

    Stayed here for one evening. Got a good price for London so was happy with that. Location is on a busy road and u know it will get busy when ear plugs are provided next to the bed. My room was on 2nd floor and had a double and single bed in. Small toilet and shower with gels included in shower. Room had a hairdryer and a fan... Took faced Finsbury Park, great view but sum beating in made it quite hot so fan was a blessing. Also had a free safe which was large enough for my laptop and iPad etc. I was able to get an iron and ironing board from reception into the lift with no issues. Breakfast was limited but fresh which was self service. Overall small hotel but comfortable for short stays.

    « Not a good stay. »

    I was visiting on business so I was in a single room at the rear. My initial impression of the room was poor as it had a strong smell of vinegar - or stale wine, as if a previous occupant had spilled a glass over the carpet. The room generally felt grubby with stains on the carpet. The bathroom was spotless though. As a business traveller there wasn't a desk to work at. The space was full of the hotel phone, cables etc. Just generally cluttered. The bed wasn't that comfortable and the sheets slipped off to expose the mattress (a pet hate of mine). There was banging from the door to the stairs to the upper floors that kept waking me up. The remote for the TV didn't work, even after changing the batteries with the help of the receptionist. A minor point, but still annoying. The cooked breakfast was a bit half hearted. Grey scrambled eggs, cheap sausages, beans and boiled unappetising mushrooms. The cold/cereal/bread selection was very good though. I don't want to be too negative. The staff were very helpful. The hotel is in a good location and is reasonably priced. The breakfast is OK. But, I would not stay here again.

    3
    « Very small and noisey, but clean »

    This is a nice hotel, friendly staff and you can use a computer and printer to print, -that was nice, however this hotel is on a busy road way, where cars are constantly going... my advice is to take a room on the 3 or fourth floor.. I was on the sec floor and had to move my room because it was so noisy... this hotel has a great selection of breakfast. Again, beware that if you stay in a single room... it will be extremely SMALL.

    « Good value »

    This is a good value hotel with quality accommodation and partially modern decoration. The rooms are comfortable and an ok size with all of the usual amenities. The hotel is opposite Finsbury Park, which our room overlooked. The surrounding area is a little rough looking and I wouldn't have been happy walking around it on my own. It is close to a tube station and it is worth having an Oyster card, which substantially reduces the cost of getting into Central London. The cost of staying at this hotel compares favourably to others in this location for the quality of accommodation and to others in terms of the distance from Central London.

    « Stayed for 02 visit »

    Good destination, A bit old fashioned, OK for a one night stay for Convenience but definately nothing luxary. Can hear everything from the room above also. A lot of flights of stairs, with a small stairwell definately would not advise for my elderly parts of the family

    « Small but clean and quiet »

    Very good stay. Quiet hotel despite being in London on a main road. Small room but clean and had everything that you need. Service was good, would definitely stay again. Price was a lot cheaper than others that I've stayed in that are a similar distance from Central London.

    « Upgraded to Apartment »

    We'd booked a quad room but were upgraded to an apartment on arrival. It's hard not to be happy with a hotel when they do something like that! The staff were also very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent. It's a short hop to King's Cross to St Pancras for Eurostar travellers. Bus stop is practically outside the door and Finsbury Park is across the road.

    3
    « SMALL ROOMS »

    The size of the standard double room is only 7 feet wide which requires the bed to be hard against a wall, so it is impossible to get up in the night without disturbing your partner. Also the bathroom is very tiny, not sure how oversized Americans can cope with the facilities. The room is nicely decorated and very clean although there is no room for a wardrobe.

    4
    « Nice but expensive. »

    The room was good value for money. it was clean and the staff were helpful. However, it would have been nice had they included breakfast. The location was great, opposite a park and near bus and subway. Some nice restaurants and a great bakery down the road.

    « A good hotel, best for business people or couples »

    Stayed a few nights with a group of teens, so we had booked a number of rooms. There were issues with beds - we had not expected that some of the teens would have to share beds and this was a turn off to them. Small rooms, but plenty of room for our luggage and to move around. Clean and comfortable beds. It's right on Seven Sisters Road, so you'd better expect to hear traffic. The park across the street was always full of walkers or joggers, so this would be a good place for those who need exercise but don't want to be on a busy thoroughfare. Breakfast was good, and the staff were always friendly and tried their best to help us. I would return on my own, but perhaps not with a large group. Easy walk to the tube.

    « Very poor hotel »

    I travel a lot for business and this is the worst Best Western yet. The first room I was allocated and entered, was actually still being used by someone else. So I had a key to someone else's possessions. Upon informing reception I was then placed in the tiniest room possible. As a business user I had nowhere to work, apart from sitting on the bed with my laptop. There were no spare electric sockets, so I couldn't charge my electrics. The tiny, shower room had no heating, and to use the sink, the door had to be open (I am not large). The room was noisy and the curtains allowed so much streetlight in it was like bedtime with lights on..... The only positive was the wifi.

    4
    « It was what I expected from a hotel budget chain. »

    Great location for the trip I had made to watch Arsenal play, 20 minute walk to the stadium and also close to tube and pubs and restauraunts. While the room was small that is expected for London and it was clean, bed was comfy too. A few niggly points were room cleaners starting way to early on a Sunday morning in the room across from me and the fire alarm going off 2 seperate times, wifi was hit and miss, no control over the central heating and the place misses a proper bar. I still feel though this hotel deserves a 4 out of 5 rating though.

    « THIS IS AN EXCELLENT STOP OVER POINT FOR EUROSTAR TRAVELLERS »

    The best Western Highbury is a really useful hotel to know about if you need somewhere to stay overnight before catching an early Euirostar. We have used it several times in recent years - as an hotel it is welcoming and perfectly well equipped - tea and coffee in the rooms and the usual toiletries etc. The beds are particularly comfortable, but more importantly - the hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Finsbury Park Station, from which it is 2 stops, or about 5 mins straight into Kings Cross/St Pancras and the Eurostar terminus. Overall - about a 25 minute journey from door to door at the worst of times and quicker on e.g a Saturday or Sunday.

    « Small rooms Noise from road makes sleep difficult »

    We stayed there with a tour group of 34 college students from the US. The breakfast was good. Wake up calls were missed. Rooms are very small. There is plenty of hot water and the bed is comfortable. The noise from Seven Sisters Road makes sleep difficult if you are light sleeper. Ask for a room on the back. A female member of our group went into a restaurant alone in the neighborhood and was told she did not belong there by patrons in the restaurant. Those working there said she was welcome. She left without incident.

    « Keep booking »

    Very good hotel, which is very reasonably priced and readily accessible when travelling from the North of England by train, providing easy access to all areas of work in and around London. Quite rooms to the rear enable a good night sleep for a light sleeper.

    « Good customer service »

    We came to visit Arsenal stadium and stayed here. The room was way too small in compared to what was promised when booked but the customer service was great, Angie customer assistant was really helpful. The room was clean and cozy. Please do not make busy or full as an excuse to change room size. However, no reluctance to book this hotel again in future.

    « Does what it says on the tin »

    Just stayed at the best western, close to tube, check was friendly the guy helpful. I was here on business. This is a budget hotel, the bedroom was a decent size, you could easily walk around the bed! Little chocolate and biscuits in room, tea and coffee making facilities! Bathroom had a nice shower and was functional. The only downside I got there about 8.30, there is no restaurant in the hotel, it's small 45 room hotel, nearest eateries KFC and subway, being a female I did not want to walk around on my own. Although the hotel had takeaway menus, primarily pizz and Indian, however I did find salads and pasta on one menu, the hotel helpfully gave me a plate and knife and fork. Plenty of choice at breakfast, my pet hate cheap chewy bread for toast!

    « Nice very well kept hotel, 500 meters from tube »

    Again at the hotel where I stayed at Xmas time. we got a quadruple room for both of us, outstandingly clean and quiet (ask for a backside room). The rooms on the side of the avenue are also very nice, but I did not test if they can technically be as quiet. The outside appearance is really nice : old London houses, beautifully painted in white.. I love that style. Price was not so exceptionnal as for Xmas, but still very good value (110 £ per night, including breakfast, with direct booking on BW site). If you are heavily loaded and take the tube (Finsbury Park with Piccadilly and Victoria Lines stopping, direct access to city center) : better take a taxi, as there is no lift to get out of the tube (there is of course a lift in the hotel, but if you are hindered, tell them ahead, so that they can give you a room near the hotel lift). But if you can carry your luggage, the hotel is very well located as the tube lines brings you directly to Heathrow (plane) or St Pancrace (train). As the hotel is already considered to be slightly excentred, the price quality relation is very good for what you get : beautiful large rooms that you get normally only in expansive hôtels. For breakfast, you get nice fresh products on a buffet. The quadruple room (we got it for my husband and me, as it was available) is OK for a family. The bathroom may be a bit cramped for four persons, as you can be one person at a time in it. But it is outstandingly clean (very important for me).

    « A great place to stay »

    We found this hotel was very clean and tidy the food was good but the staff were the best of all after a long run from Devon it was so pleasing to see such happy faces to great you and the way that they conducted the booking in was carried out with care and thoughtfulness it was like meeting and old friend or relative so warming. Thanks again to them they made our stay the best part of our break away.

    « Great Stay »

    I only stayed the one night but it was a great stay, the bed was super comfortable and had a good nights sleep. No road noise even though the room overlooked the main road, the room was very clean and a nice layout. I would stay here again. The only downside was the very small car park and the fact it was full - i parked in the quiet side street for a fiver over the weekend. The wifi was fast - all in all a great place to stay.

Easy bus ride on the 29 into central London or hop off before last stop at Trafalgar square for theatres. Bus stop right outside hotel. Overnight parking £10 great, just park up and go exploring. Excellent value for money. Well done Best Western cant wait to come back xx

    I cane back and i can confirm all the good notes about friendly and efficient staff, very good and comfortable rooms (remind to ask for rooms on the parking side, because those on the front are noisly, due to road traffic. But, surprise: one more positive news, it's now available cooked breakfast in the morning, so one more reason to come bere!

    « Weekend Break »

    Our room was clean and comfortable. Some unavoidable noise from the main road, but not sufficient to stop us sleeping. There was a very adequate choice at breakfast. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Car park was small and I thought £10.00 per night expensive.

    We stayed here as our sons band were playing at a venue close by. The rooms and hotel are clean and rooms comfortable . The staff are so friendly and nothing is any bother for them so thank you so much . We would definitely stay again and revoke s this hotel .

    « Just enough to survive »

    we chose this hotel because of its location. There is nothing fancy about it (well, that's best Western) and nothing disastrous. Just enough for 1-2 nights. The cosy room is really cosy, even smaller than Parisian hotel rooms. Everything is old but not antique and there is a kind of stinking smell on floor (but fortunately not in the room). The room maid was rather clumsy and non-attentive but the reception staff and breakfast ladies were nice. The breakfast room is even older than the hotel itself, old, old fashioned and that disgusting stink on the staircase to the breakfast room. Nothing fancy about the breakfast, just a little bit of everything. Not quite disappointing (you get what you pay for) but certainly not convenient for a long stay nor for a leisure stay. We just used bed and breakfast and where on the conference the whole day, otherwise it could be intolerable.

    « Good for the money! »

    I stayed here overnight for a course whilst in London and it was decent! The price was very cheap especially for London! The nearest tube stop is Manor House (which straddles Zones 2 & 3) and the hotel itself is opposite Finsbury Park. At Check-in, I was given the incorrect room (although it was a computer error, rather than human error!) but the lady behind the desk fixed it quickly and it did not impact on my stay at all. The room itself is very small, but with all the amenities you'd expect - tea & coffee facilities, shower, bathroom etc - but with the small size of the room, it does feel very cramped, especially if you're a couple! Also, if your room faces the Seven Sisters Road, there will be a lot of noise as it's a very busy road! Breakfast was available onsite - continental was free, but it was £10 each if you wanted cooked breakfast - the selection seemed to be plentiful, although as I got there a bit late, there wasn't a huge amount left! Check-out was very smooth. All-in-all, a good choice if you're looking for a cheap hotel that has all that you need, despite my slight gripes!

    « Nice and clean room, excellent service »

    Stayed for 2 nights in a triple room, with 1 queen bed and 1 single bed. We arrived at night and check in was smooth. There is a resident parking just around the back of the hotel, and access to rooms are very easy as we got a room on the ground floor (not much view, underground terrace outside our windows but that's fine with us. we did not request for a specific room). I really love the classic look of the hotel, very well kept inside and out. The toilet and shower are clean and soap is provided. Other basic amenities can be requested at reception. The Manor House tube station is just about 5 minutes walk from the hotel and there are some shops near the station. The halal kebab takeout we went there has some really good mixed doner and fish and chips in generous servings. Among other things that I love here, I really have to highlight their excellent service during our short stay. We needed to leave some baggage before our trip to Paris via Eurostar. After googling our options for storage at St.Pancras, we decided to try our luck asking the hotel if they have luggage storage service instead. And to our delight they allowed some of our baggage to be stored here without any charges (even though we were not staying there after we got back from Paris)! With quite a small space of storage, I really appreciate that they did not charge anything for that and were very welcoming about it all. This is one of my best memories staying in a hotel and i highly recommend if anyone chooses to stay here! p.s. There's chocolates on the bed during check in; little things that make people happy:)

    Everything perfect. Probably the friendliest hotel I've ever stayed in. For the price and the location in London, it is perfect. The staff are wonderful, helpful and pleasant. Would happily stay here again.

    « an outstanding price/quality deal for Christmas »

    The hotel is extremely clean inside, looks very well kept from the outside (a set of traditional London houses). We got an outstanding deal for Christmas ; I would recommend it strongly for families (many triple rooms). As I understood the policy, this deal is not only on Christmas. Although it seems to be a little bit outside, the tube is about 8 to 10 minutes by foot (Finsbury), walking normally. Even if the neighbourhood near the tube is not so inspiring, it is OK if you are with two (or even three female persons). With the tube ( located in zone 2), you have a direct connection with St Pancrace, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus, Knightsbridge (for Harrods !) and many other places of interest. So I would strongly recommend the hotel if you look for a good place to rest (the beds are a dream) for an affordable price in London. There is a good parking area too (but we did not use it). If you come by train from St Pancrace, the taxi will cost between 13 and 15 £ (we were 3 persons with 3 very big pièces of luggage, and were charged in total 14 £ at 8 pm). Our daughter did not stay with us overnight. There is a good buffet breakfast in the morning in a pleasant room with bright natural light and lovely service. So : in conclusion : a very good choice. Would recommend and come back on a next occasion.

    « Convenient and Clean »

    This property is in a very convenient location near to bus and underground transport . The hotel staff are very accommodating and the rooms comfortable. I would suggest you request a room in the back of the hotel as those in the front are subjected to the traffic noise on the street below. Worth the price.

    Great time at the hotel. Really lovely and helpful staff. The room was very nice and breakfast was lovely. Finsbury Park right across the road. All for very reasonable price. Will definitely visit again.

    « Very good and bad all in same hotel »

    Good location on Seven Sister's Road, North London, just about three minutes walk from Mansion House tube station on Picadilly line. Hotel has a car park with a reasonable charge (£10 per night) but book early as limited spaces. Hotel clean and rooms okay with everything you need - hair drier, safe, hanging space, en-suite bathroom etc. We stayed in room 306 at front of hotel. You need a room at the back of the hotel if you can get it. The beds were not at all comfortable and room was very hot. Double glazing not very effective as traffic noise kept us awake. If we had opened the window to let in some cool air the noise would have been deafening. Breakfast was excellent with plentiful buffet. Bed & breakfast for two people was £70 which is very reasonable for London. Would stay again but with a room at the back.

    Lovely place. Staff were very friendly. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a couple of nights in London. Secure parking at the back of the hotel which costs £10

    Spent 2 nights here while visiting family. The hotel looked really nice on arrival and inside was even better. The receptionist was very pleasant even though we arrived very late at night. The room was nicely decorated and clean and tidy. We couldn't get the tv to work initially but after mentioning it to reception it was sorted very quickly. Breakfast was really good value for the £10 charge with lots of choice. For the price we paid I would definitely stay here again. There is quite a lot of road noise if you are in one of the front rooms but it is London so should be expected

    « ideal location »

    Needed hotel in Highbury to visit relatives who lives either end of Seven Sisters Road. Stayed at several Best Western before so was happy to select this one. Check in was quick and efficient. Having on site parking was great and with only a modest charge. Room was very clean with 2 large beds and small bathroom but was acceptable for short stay. Breakfast was adequate with choice of hot and cold food. This room was a bit small but was seated immediately even though it was quite busy. Only stayed 1 night but was ideal for our needs and would recommend..

    « Normal, comfortable, easy, no problems »

    Pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel, as some of the buildings nearby are run down; but this stretch of Seven Sisters Road (overlooking Finsbury Park) seems to be gradually being developed and revitalised. Room clean and comfortable. Quiet enough. Spacious breakfast room -- normal choice of food, not exceptional but perfectly OK. I'd stay again.

    « My Stay at Best Western - Highbury »

    Extremely surprised with the quality of this hotel (room and service). Very close to the Manor House underground station (less than 5 minutes walk away). The room was cosy and comforatable. One of the best power shower experiences I have had given I stay in hotels quite abit due to business. The reception staff was helpful and professional. Overall a great experience. The only suggestion I would make is to make the walls a little sound proof. As I was based on the ground floor, I was exposed to the noise from the room above (walking etc).

    We stayed at the Best Western Highbury when we went to The Emirates to watch Arsenal. The hotel is only a 20 minute walk to the stadium & is very well located for public transport, restaurants, shops etc. We had a triple room, which looked like it had recently been refurbished & was clean & tidy, with a nice bathroom. Breakfast was a full English & was tasty & plentiful. There is parking on site, which was £10 for 24 hours, which is very reasonable for London. The staff were fantastic, very efficient & helpful, especially Alina, who helped us out no end when we realised we had left something behind in our room. She immediately located it & and posted it out to us the same day. Can't thank her enough.

    « Please don't waste your money »

    This hotel looks OK from the exterior with painted railings, befitting the area. However, as you approach the interior, it feels like a very cheap hotel, with dirty leather sofas in the reception, a bar/come checking in area, which is tiny; narrow corridors and bedrooms so close together you can hear every single movement. As a single business woman, I need to feel safe.The mattress was full of lumps and thin. I felt completely the opposite and couldn't wait to leave in the morning, choosing to only briefly visit the breakfast room, offered instant coffee, shortbread biscuits and burnt toast. I paid full London rates, for a room that was OK - it was clean, but thats as far as the positives are concerned. Seriously, do something prompt to change this tired and unsafe place

    « Good value for money hotel »

    As expected, my room was small but cozy, quiet and clean so I have no complaints. The staff were courteous and accommodating specially the nice Albanian lady whose name slipped my mind. Conveniently located across the Finsbury Park, bus stops and Finsbury tube station. Lots of restos around as well.

    « Appalling Customer Service »

    I recently booked for an employee to stay at this hotel via booking.com. The hotel was paid for in advance, booked in his name as the guest. When he turned up they advised there was no booking. He then had to pay extra for an additional room. In the morning we received a 'no show' email from booking.com to say they hotel advised he never turned up. After contacting the hotel they said he turned up after midnight and therefore it is the following day. They then changed their story to 'he couldnt provide a name for the booking' and again they finally decided their story was 'he could not provide the credit card'. Our engineer has a receipt from the hotel when he checked in at 21:23, he was also never asked to provide the credit card and he provided his name, the company and my name for the booking. The hotel staff were extremely rude, unhelpful and refused to put me through to the manager. They told me I was lying and they would not give any refund as no one turned up at the hotel. I am shocked at the way they handled this and would expect a lot more from a Best Western. We would never book with this chain again and i would advise anyone thinking about it to reconsider. It seems to me like they are just after more money!!!!! A truly appalling experience.

    « Friendly hotel, good for a London trip base »

    We stayed there as convenient for a trip to London. Helpful staff and a decent breakfast. Shame about having to pay extra for parking, £10 / day. We had a room at the back of the main building and noise wasn't a problem. Might be different overlooking Seven Sisters Road.

    Lovely staff, cracking breakfast in a morning and a good nights sleep. We had a family room next door to the entrance from the car park, more than enough space for two adults and a boisterous toddler and quiet enough for us all to get a good nights sleep. Particular mention to the the lady that ran the breakfast room in the morning who greeted our son with genuine delight every day, and made breakfast time an utter pleasure.

    « For the price I can't complain (too much) »

    We stayed here as an overnight stay before travelling eurostar from St Pancras station. It is a 5 min walk from Finsbury Park Station which is served by the Victoria and Northern Lines to Kings Cross St Pancras. The hotel itself is clean and well kept with friendly staff but it is an old building and the lack of insulation means it can be noisy. For the price it's a pretty good deal for somewhere to crash for the night but if I wanted a base camp to explore from I'd probably pay a bit more for somewhere less 'budget'.

    « Comfortable Stay for family of five. »

    The room was pretty comfortable for a family of five, we had the two bedroom apartment. This room had a kitchenette and that was handy. Easy walking distance to the tube and bus stops. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. Quite far from the city center although. My only complaint is the price was high for the room we stayed in; but that's London for you.

    My daughter and I stayed here for one night. We got an upgrade to a two bedroom apartment which was brilliant, it had a kitchen, dining table and lounging area. The staff were really nice and friendly. It was no bother for them to call for a taxi when asked. There was a good selection at breakfast. Easy walking distance from Finsbury Station and in general a nice area. I left my phone charger in the room and they have located it for me and I am getting it picked up. They were very helpful in checking for me. I would definitely stay here again.

    Hotel was a reasonable all rounder. The room was clean, bed was comfy. Was a bit too stuffy through the night and didn't get a great deal of sleep even with the window open. I'm a country lass so not used to the city air so blaming that! Stayed in the back of the hotel, so wasn't too noisy as loads of traffic out front. Breakfast was fairly standard, Internet was fine. Would stay again. Your satnav might take you round the back of the hotel, type the street address in instead!

    Stayed here for two nights during Wireless. Was great as the hotel was just over the road and we were able to watch people walking trying to get lifts!! Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was your average continental. I would return.
