About the hotel

This charming five bedroom bed and breakfast is situated on the first floor above a traditional London pub in a residential part of historic Greenwich (a World Heritage Site). The Pelton Arms appeared in Rock and Chips, the prequel to Only Fools and Horses, where it became the “Nag’s Head”, and still bears the signage. The Pelton Arms is a friendly local pub serving real ale and great British food.

A relaxing garden and traditional pub games such as bar billiards and darts make this a lovely pub whatever the weather. The property is a 10 minute walk from Maze Hill Mainline and DLR train stations with easy links to both the City and central London. Direct trains are available to London Bridge, Waterloo, Charing Cross, Cannon Street and Canary Wharf. Greenwich to London Bridge is a 10 minute journey. The Pelton Arms is just a short walk from the centre of Greenwich. Local attractions include Greenwich Royal Park, the Royal Observatory, the Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum. The bed & breakfast rooms were renovated in Spring 2014. There is a communal area with a sofa and facilities to make tea and coffee. Eclectic decor is provided in keeping with the traditional ambience. The five bedrooms share the one communal shower room, with toiletries provided, and two separate toilets, each fitted to a high specification. Please note that every Friday night and Saturday night we have live music from 9pm-11pm so it will be noisy on band nights. We also have a late licence on these nights. The well proportioned rooms are traditional in design with carefully chosen furniture and accessories. The five bedrooms are made up of one family room, one kingsize bedroom and three double bedrooms. A traditional full English Breakfast is included in the price of the bed & breakfast and this is served in the main area of the pub. This accommodation is ideal for business executives or people visiting the O2. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance. Free Wi-Fi is provided.

Not value for money

Friendly staff does not overcome a facility that felt and looked dirty.

Sharing bathroom and toilet facilities with 4 other rooms at £80 per night is not value for money. We stayed at main centres in France for almost half that price and had en suite bath and toilet.

Pelton Arms is Perfect for an Adventure

We arrived just before 11pm, after a long journey to be greeted by the calm welcoming Wesoey who sorted us out with payment, keys to our room and a tour.

We were especially pleased because the atmosphere in the pub was fantastic and closing wasn't until 1am. We had time to relax, meet the locals (thank you Mr Nelson) and experience the pub garden. There were youngsters in the garden who were very friendly and gave me a short lesson online on Pokemon Go - thank you. The pub cat, Sailor, happily sat being stroked by one and all. The flowers in the garden and outside the bedroom window were fabulous.

We had a great nights sleep. Even though the toilet and bathroom were down the corridor, it felt like being in someone's home, especially with a clean and up to date kitchen I between where guests could make themselves a cup of tea, if they wish to. Shower was up to date and clean with shampoo, conditioner and liquid soap available, if needed. By the time we descended for breakfast the floor in the bar area had been mopped and we were invited to explore the fascinating old photos and wall adornings. The garden looked just as pretty in the daylight. We were asked what we would like in our full English breakfast and opted for egg and crispy bacon sarnies. The bread was lovely, as was the tea and juice. We had a lovely chat with the landlords lovely partner who gave us the story of the pub. We were under no pressure to leave as we sat in the garden chatting with Wesley. (Well done for the French and Politics degree!)

We the walked around to the nearest bus stop to jump on the 422 to Greenwich and the cable car ride across the river. £10 a ticket, Wesley - thanks for the advice. We wouldn't have had that fun without the recommendation from you.

All in all, a wonderful adventure, with lovely people in a pub that really is old school fun. I would highly recommend and evening and over stay at this venue. Thank you for a great adventure.
