Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage Reviews


Welcome to Palmers Lodge, where you can experience Victorian elegance in the former home of Samuel Palmer, of the Huntley and Palmers biscuit empire. Built in 1881, this substantial house has been restored to its original glory in order to offer our guests not just budget accommodation but also a unique experience during their stay in London.

We have a wide selection of dorms; from private rooms to a 14-bed dorm for the really price conscious traveller. Great care has been taken in furnishing our spacious rooms to the highest standard with top quality bunks and secure storage facilities.

Guests can enjoy FREE Internet and WiFi access in the lobby, relax in the lounge or have a drink with friends in our bar. A free continental breakfast, served in our Scullery restaurant, is included in the price.

Chill out in our Chapel Bar, lounge or restaurant all of which are equipped with flat screen TVs. If you have a laptop logon to our wireless network for free to catch up with friends or to plan your future travels.

If your going out then catch a tube from either Swiss Cottage or Finchley Road tube stations and in a few minutes you can be in the centre of the City. If you're having a really late night then you can catch the handy night bus back from Trafalgar Square! Swiss Cottage is an affluent part of London and there is plenty to do near the hostel. There are two cinemas near the hostel, the Hampstead Theatre, Freud Museum, Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre and plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants on Finchley Road.

This beautiful building gives our guests the chance not just to see London's history but also to sleep in it! The restoration has added all modern facilities without spoiling the building's character and guests can be assured by our conscientious staff, security card system and commitment to the highest standards. Our mission is to provide comfortable, secure, clean and spacious accommodation to the budget traveller. Don't just see London's history; live in it for a while!
