An easy walk just around the corner from Earls Court tube station The Boltons Hotel, London is a Best Western, and is convenient for much of what London has to offer. It offers three-star comfort, and easy access both to the centre of town, and to more far-flung destinations around London.
Since it came into being as a suburb, converted from the market gardens that used to feed the city in the nineteenth century, earls Court has been slightly more bohemian and varied than its neighbouring districts within Kensington and Chelsea. Whilst prices have recently soared in the area, for a long time it was slightly cheaper, meaning that less affluent subcultures could flourish there, each of which left its mark on the bustling Earls Court Road. From waves of polish immigration just after the Second World War to Australians in the 1980s and Filipinos in the 2000s, Earls Court has seen a number of communities pass through, and has been enriched by each. Earls Court is also home to the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, where Crufts and the Royal Tournament are held, within walking distance of The Boltons Hotel and The Troubadour a coffee house and music venue where the likes of Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix have all played. From Earls Court tube station you can get into the centre of town easily on the Piccadilly Line, which also reaches out to Heathrow Airport. If you are coming into Heathrow, then there is a direct train from your terminal to Earls Court tube, just around the corner from The Boltons Hotel.
The Boltons Hotel has been recently refurbished, and its 57 air-conditioned rooms all have en suite bathrooms, flat screen colour televisions, satellite television channels, wireless internet access, and 24-hour room service available. There is no parking at the hotel, although there is a public car park nearby. There us also a safe big enough to hold a laptop in every room, a hairdryer and ironing facilities, and access to pay movies.
Although the hotel itself is small, and this is reflected in the size of some of the rooms, The Boltons represents comfort and convenience whilst not charging the extortionate rates of some of the luxury hotels in the West End. The breakfast is one of the better ones available in the area, as it includes a full English breakfast, a rarity at the hotels of Earls Court. The breakfast room is small but adequate and the quality of the breakfast on offer more than makes up for it. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and those on the front desk are both knowledgeable and courteous. Many guests state that they would recommend the hotel to others.
In all The Boltons Hotel is a good, comfortable, clean hotel with good staff and an excellent breakfast. It offers easy access to Londons attractions, as well as to Heathrow Airport. It presents a winning combination of value for money and convenience, and is well worth investigating whatever the purpose of your visit, business or leisure.
