Have stayed here now several times and Patricia has always been very helpful and cheerful. Wouldn't stay anywhere else now I'm Kingston unless she was full. Can't wait until next time, hopefully longer then.

Having stayed here over 20 years ago as a student, I was delighted to find that not only is the Hermes still open, it is still run by the same family! It is a very friendly place to stay, very close to Kingston centre with it's many shops and restaurants, so no problem at all finding somewhere to eat in... More

The Hermes is set back from the road opposite the River Thames. There is a lovely walk from the hotel into the centre of Kingston and it only takes 6 minutes. There is plenty to see on the way. The room was twin bedded en suite and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious especially the bacon. I would stay here... More

Stayed with a friend from 31 Oct to 3 Nov. in this family run hotel, which is very close to the town centre. I can only say that it was simply too short. Patricia, the owner is a lovely lady, the rooms are superb, the breakfast very good. Will definetely return.

If you are looking for a room on the West side of London [Kingston on Thames] this is great value. It is clean and comfortable and the breakfast is first class, No evening meals are served but the location on the the riverside just south of Kingston means it is reasonably quiet but with a good selection of restaurants [10...
