Short-stay accommodation

Goodenough College welcomes hundreds of visitors – we're open to anyone who wants somewhere to stay in central London, from tourists and weekend visitors through to visiting academics looking for sabbatical accommodation, representatives of partner organisations, returning members of our Alumni community and the family of our current Members.

Situated in the College’s historic London House and William Goodenough House, our accommodation blends traditional charm with modern amenities.

For solo travellers or those seeking single occupancy, we have a selection of well-appointed rooms. These include en suite rooms with private bathroom facilities and rooms with shared bathrooms, offering a more budget-friendly choice without compromising on comfort.

For couples, or those needing a bit more space, our spacious double rooms, designed to comfortably accommodate two people, are ideal. Additionally, we offer one-bedroom flats that provide a more apartment-like environment, perfect for those looking for a home away from home. These flats include a fully fitted kitchen and a separate living area and bedroom, offering ample space and privacy for a comfortable stay.

Our accommodation is fully furnished. Linen, towels and free wifi are provided and guests have access to the Great Hall dining room, Freddies café and a number of other College amenities. Check in: 3.00pm Check out: 11.00am

(Please note that guests should be 18+ for our single rooms. We are able to accommodate parents and carers with children under 12 in our double rooms and flats.)
