Mrs Kara Hannigan, July 2014: Hi we were really pleased with the 2 night stay in wigram house
The building is in an excellent location
The reception staff were really nice and friendly and helpful
The rooms were clean and a great option for staying in Central London due to the great price we could afford a single room for our teenage son rather than trying to squeeze into a family room due to cost
Highly recommend to anyone visiting London
Ms Anne Rosager, July 2014: Perfect location, both when it comes to public transportation (getting there and away is very easy with Victoria Station around the corner) and to sights.
Mr Alex Colloby, July 2014: Room was a bit out dated however this was expected as is all student accommodation so was no problem at all, it was fit for purpose! Excellent value for money considering the great location next to Victoria station (and late closing McDonals) with a lovely building exterior! Lovely friendly welcome and goodbye as well, have already recommended to family and friends! Thank you
Miss Anna Buchholz, July 2014: Felt very safe, and I enjoyed how quiet the building was. Receptionists were not very helpful and it would have been helpful if they could give recommendations of places to go or restaurants to eat at. Good location, and very easy to get to from the tube.
Mrs Ruth Nelmes, July 2014: Thank you for the welcome & friendliness we received from both reception workers/managers.It made our overnight stay more personable & the ability to leave our overnight back in keeping for the day so we could attend our special event was a massive bonus.Impressed by the cleanliness & superb location.This was my second visit have already recommended to friends & will use again i'm sure.

Mrs Charlotte Pritchard, August 2012: Very good value for money, simple clean accommodation for our trip to the Hyde Park closing concert. Perfect location.
Only real issue is that it's so noisy! Very warm so had to leave window open and although I appreciate central London is noisy (I live in a city myself) it was quite difficult to sleep with that and the noise of the floorboards creaking! Second level window to reduce noise (I assume you couldn't have double glazing in that area) and some work on the floorboards would be great. But at that price I guess I can't argue! : )
Sr. Bruno Menendez, August 2012: Great location
Mr Simon Alton, July 2012: To be honest, we didn't really have the time to use the facilities on offer, apart from sleeping in our room. The beds were really comfortable and the pillows/bedding too. Everything was clean and Mohammed (sorry if the spelling is a variation) at reception was very friendly. We would definitely recommend staying at Wigram House and hope to return.
Dr Richard Fay, June 2012: For what is on offer - ie a university room in a central location, this is good value for money and I was made to feel welcome during my short stay. Thank you.
