We returned and...

For £50 in central London you can't expect luxury! It's a huge room, the beds comfy and there's a sofa. The down side is its freezing! The bathroom was really nice but the door handle was about to fall off. Very friendly and the free breakfast was great! The major downside was the very loud noise whenever anyone had a...

My overall experience in The Castle Bar was rather good. All staff members are very friendly and helpful, and I felt I could always go to them if I had any problems. The location is excellent for going to the Arsenal stadium without relying on the Tube. However, the Caledonian Rd. Tube station is also only about 700 meters away,...

Myself and daughter stayed here to see a rock concert. We expected a room and facilities but we got so much more! The proprietor was friendly and warm towards us and offered a great welcome to London. We came back from the concert and he invited us in to enjoy some mulled wine and live music as the hotel was...

Friendly staff, quite informal and nonchalant vibe. Tired London townhouse building with creaking stairs and floors, wobbly staircase and leaking stairwell walls in the loft area. Reasonable breakfast.

The staff are so friendly and accommodating, the bar is great and is an excellent price. The restaurant is beautiful with really fresh seafood, highly recommend the paella. Location is really good right near Camden markets and Holloway train station. The rooms are spacious and really clean. Highly recommend. 10/10

We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend to watch some gigs over at the O2 Forum and to visit ZSL London Zoo during the day. The staff were very pleasant and polite and our room was comfortable and clean.

I stayed at the Castle Bar B&B for 2 nights in late April, 2016 and of the premises and staff itself, I can only say it was a good experience. I was booked in quickly by Nelson (I believe) when I arrived and taken to my room. The room itself was on the top floor of this 4 storey building....
