The Gyle is extremely convenient to any point in London since it is a short walk from King’s Crossing Underground Terminal. The unlimited coffee and tea selection 24/7 came in handy. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. I found the beds and pillows very comfortable, particularly if you like things on the soft side.

The location is great! The staffs are wonderful. We were traveling with the baby and our room below the ground floor smelled like cigarettes. When we explained our situation with the baby, they were very accommodating and changed our room to upper level where there was smoke free. Thanks!

Walking distance to King Cross station and multiple cafe and restaurant. Beautiful decorated, nice shower, clean room. However, the tiny King bed is actually a full size not a queen z and it feels very small and uncomfortable for 2 people. Little air circulation, the room feels warm at night on a hot day even when you turn down the AC because the vent is by the window and for some reason it only gets cool around that area

My family and I stayed for 8 days (in 2 rooms). The Gyle was an excellent home base for all of our activities in and around London. The staff became familiar with our family very quickly and we’re very accommodating.

Very comfy bed and very convenient for Kings Cross. There was only 1 staff member, who was on the phone when I arrived and sitting at a table when I left. More training on customer service is definitely required. I am a tour operator, so have some experience in this. No continental plug sockets and no adaptors available on loan - I was advised to go to a shop - it was after 21.00 at night, so I didnt really fancy that. Smallest possible measure of whisky, no loo brush and poor lighting in the room. It could be a very nice experience, and the location is excellent. However, people/staff make a huge difference to any experience.

Lovely place! We initially booked the vaulted bathroom, but had to be moved to their sister hotel The Megaro when the bath broke! We were upgraded to one of their suites, but still got to enjoy drinks at the Gyle. Ollie was amazing and certainly made the first night of our honeymoon memorable! We will definitely return to stay at the Gyle properly ourselves. Such a quiet place with a great social/bar area downstairs for hotel guests only.

I had a junior suite and it was really noisy both from outside, people talking and inside from upstairs and people passing the door. Hardly had any sleep. Beautiful room and property though and great location But would recommend taking your ear plugs with you.
