Afternoon tea was a wonderful experience at the new outside restaurant of the Bloomsbury Hotel. Not only is it really beautifully done and the food is delicious - but most importantly the staff were so friendly and helpful that it makes you want to return. A really special place😄😄

Second time I've stayed at this lovely boutique hotel and was again very happy. Good location, wonderful restaurant and very friendly bar. I think I'm going to make this my regular hotel of choice when in London. The only mild niggle I have is the poor lighting in my room, it's a bit dark, maybe higher energy bulbs ? Overall...

We booked The Bloomsbury Hotel for 10 days. I had read good reviews on Tripadvisor and we were very pleased with our experience.

The hotel is a true beauty in central London. The accommodation rooms are elegantly decorated and very comfortable. Would definitely want to stay in the room again. The conferencing on the other hand was poor. Smelly rooms, poor equipment, smokers outside the window of the room and noisy construction going on.

Excellent service. Literally freshly baked scones to order. Flavoursome tea that makes you think you have never drink tea in your life before., sandwiches, cakes, everything on the platters a total delight. I just wish we had allowed at least 2 hours for the experience. Will go again and 100% recommend

I am so happy you enjoyed The Bloomsbury as much as you did. It is exceptionally nice that you mention the building and it's history as we like to think it adds to the romantic ambience of the Hotel.
