I wish I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor before booking. The photos of the hotel on the booking.com site are fake as are two of the excellent and good reviews on Trip Advisor. This is easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed at, it was dirty, moldy, noisy, unsafe and unsanitary. I was in Room 5, between... More

Excellent place for a business conference- high quality rooms, great food and decent business venues. Nice and spacious both inside and outside which is great for break out activities. Good sports and spa facilities and helpful staff. Overall, would recommend as an alternative venue out in the country side. #goodthinkingtime

I stayed here in August 2012 for two days, my room had no bath\shower or toilet so I used shared ones. They were really terrible. The room itself was simple small but tidy, worth its price. The guy from staff was helpful, location is fine, and you can easily get to most places. Being clean freak, I would not stay... More

Convenient for when we needed it. Beautiful to look at and great gym and leisure facilities. The room was nothing special especially given the price. The restaurant was good with great service and good food. Fire alarm went off during the night. Only one member of staff was visible, but no communication which was very poor. No mention of it...

My experience in that hotel was awful! Photos from on the web are fake! Reality is: underground located hotel, unclean and very small bath, walls painted in different colors, and the staff unfriendly! Unclean bed sheets cause me infection on eyes! DO NOT BOOK IT!!

Location extremely convenient, both to Russell Square and Kings Cross / St Pancras Station - perfect for Eurostar. Service was helpful. Room small but clean & adequate. Shared bathroom was fine. Motel was quiet.

Before even arriving at the hotel, we had called to see if they could store our luggage before check-in (something very standard of most hotels one would think). After they declined our request (should've been the first red flag), we waited around the area in one of the parks until 2 o'clock. After enter the dingy establishment, we were waiting... More

Travelled to England from Canada and booked this "hotel" online before arriving. First off, it is very cheap. For 2 people it was 210 pounds for 3 nights. Very good location, walking distance to Euston Stn. It was more of a hostel rather than a hotel. It was under construction when we were there, we were awakened by 10-15 Indian... More

2 young female Australians, we booked before we got to London. Upon first impression, doesn't look too bad, had to pay money upfront before seeing the room, big mistake. Rooms are nothing like the website, very false advertising. Ongoing renovation works, plaster falling off the walls, very dirty, disorganised, very strong curry smell. Hotel is run by a group of...

The Goodwood Hotel would be honestly better to set more realistic expectations, if it were to turn around it's poor trip advisor reviews and proactively deal with situations like mine, where we (four business people) simply just walked out of the hotel having paid £400 deposit for 4 rooms. We later went on that evening to spend £250 each for... More
