Even better location than we were expecting, two seconds from the exit from Kings cross, really good transport links, in a lovely green square. Room was just big enough for four, we got what we paid for, bathroom was a little on the small side but wasn't an issue. Breakfast was well planned and delicious, fresh toast brought straight to...

The double room we had was very cramped indeed. There was plaster coming off the walls. The kettle was right next to the bed, so if we had left it there overnight, it's likely one of us would have knocked it onto ourselves. The tv remote wasn't working. The tap in the bathroom was extremely loose. i couldn't find a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights for a site seeing trip. The reception service was friendly and efficient. There's no lift and we were up 2 flights of stairs so carrying your cases up could be hard work for some. The room wad pretty small but it was clean, the bed was comfy and it had a perfectly clean toilet... More

To review B&B, bed and breakfast, I would concentrate on those two. While the bed was ok, was breakfast so horrible I can't give very high rating. Breakfast room was ridiculously small causing people to queue to get in. No cooked breakfast, only toasts, coffee and cereal. Also, it was full of impolite Russians and I was charged extra when...

I visited London in mid-February, for two days of pure sightseeing with my four year old daughter, and stayed at The Elmwood for two nights (Tuesday and Wednesday). She'd been very curious about London and was very excited to see all of the wonderful things I'd told her about, so I booked the hotel knowing it was going to be... More

Chose this hotel since I had to fly the day after and everywhere was booked for a technology fair in london. The photos as seen on booking.com where attractive, however upon arriving, I had a shock since I walked in. The room was nothing more than the size of a pantry - microscopic. It was very dirty with dust and... More

The noise outside my hotel room was absolutely horrendous, there was fighting and constant shouting that continued well past 3am. The only way I could get any sleep was by putting my earphones in and listening to music, and at a fair old volume to drown out the constant shouting of " STFU Motha Bruv" The hotel was poor, but...
