Can I smoke in my room?

As of January 2018, the Royal Garden Hotel is a completely non-smoking hotel. This decision was been taken due to strong guest feedback and an enthusiasm to improve our guests’ experience.

Do I need a separate room for my children?

The majority of our rooms accommodate a maximum of two adults. For families, we are happy to provide a travel cot or an extra bed for children up to the age of 11. This is available free of charge, but please call us directly once you have made your reservation to ensure availability.


Why does my confirmation say I only booked for one adult when I'm sure I booked for two?

Our rates are charged per room so there is no problem if the number of people on the booking is incorrect. Just let us know at check-in and we will update your reservation.


Is there parking?

If you plan to drive to us you can take advantage of our carpark that is conveniently located below the hotel. The site is open 24 hours a day and equipped with in-house CCTV to ensure your vehicle is safe and secure. There are disabled parking spaces available and our helpful staff will be on hand night and day if you need any help getting to and from the car park.

You can find car park prices here

Are triple rooms available?

Third adults can be accommodated in many of our rooms. Deluxe Studios and Park Suites are the most popular choices for three adults travelling together.


Is VAT included?

When quoting a room rate we will always include VAT, currently at 20 percent.

Check-in and check-out

When can I check-in?

Check-in is available from 14:00 on the day of arrival. If you arrive before that and your room is ready, we will happily check you in. However, if we can’t, we will do our best to make your room available as soon as possible. Please contact our Reservations team for guaranteed early check-ins.


When is check-out?

Check-out is at 12:00. If you need to check-out later, you can keep your room until 18:00 for 50 per cent of the rate for a one-night stay. Check-out after 18:00 is charged at the full rate for a one-night stay. Alternatively, you can leave your luggage with our Concierge team free of charge and collect them when needed.



What are the breakfast options?

Continental (£20.50) or Full English (£25) breakfast is available currently at our Min Jiang restaurant or in your room via our 24-hour room service. Children's (up to 11) breakfasts are half the adult price.

"Wonderful Stay"

"I booked a couple of rooms, both with a view of the park. Brilliant service by all staff and wonderful quality of rooms. We had an event at The Albert Hall and this hotel is located in a great spot for this, just a short walk from each other".
