Grazing Goat Hotel Review London

While in London, Ben and I usually stay with his brother or other family members. There were a couple nights we did need a hotel during the weekend of his sister’s wedding. I chose the Grazing Goat in Marylebone and area I didn’t know much about before going. The hotel seemed cute though. Here’s a review of the Grazing Goat Hotel in London.

While they are famous for their Sunday roasts, we only had time for breakfast each morning as our days were fully packed. At night, the bar stayed open until around 1130 pm and it was noisy until it closed. It was extra noisy for us as we had the windows open for cool air (it was hot the nights we stayed and the hotel doesn’t have A/C as most places in England don’t).

The place definitely has a charm to it. For me, being from the states, I loved the vibe and the wooden floors, deer antler decor, and pub like feel downstairs. For Ben who is used to these things, he wanted a quiet room with A/C and as men do, complained a bit. If you’re here in the hot months it’s something to keep in mind. Luckily, the second night we came back late, so the pub was closed.

The front door locks and you get a key for that and your room. This means that the day you check in you need to check in before about 1030 pm to make sure you can get in. Most people do, but I know late check-ins are a thing. Make sure you let them know if you are checking in late so something can be sorted out.

If you have luggage, keep in mind this is a walk-up.

Baked beans were the bomb. The blueberry smoothie was also perfect.

Overall, it’s a great place to stay. The area is definitely upscale. At one point there were 3 bentleys on the road outside the hotel. It’s just near Oxford Street so you can do some shopping. Click  for rates and availability.
