My husband and I needed to be in London for work at short notice We needed to drive so specifically called the hotel to ask about parking. We were told there was street car parking so we decided to book. On arrival we found max stay was 2 hours, at a price of £4. When we asked the hotel about... More

Our over all stay at The William VI was quite pleasant. We booked a double en suite room for a weekend visit to London to attend the Eminem concert. The room was very clean although a little small in size, but quite adequate for our two night stay. I wouldn't necessarily recommend anyone other than younger or sociable people to... More

Me and my wife had booked the Will IV through laterooms.com. We had tickets for the Eminem concert in Wembley and Will IV looked like the right place to stay as it was only 15 minutes away from the stadium. We had a very warm welcoming when we arrived , the room was very tastefully decorated and overall pretty clean.... More

We were travelling in London through a travel agency that booked us to stay here. It was terrible. Our room looked NOTHING like any of the pictures. Our shower only had hot water so we took scalding hot showers and the room smelled like a toilet. We figured out that if we kept the toilet lid shut, it reduced the... More

I booked this hotel 5 days in advance through LateRooms.com, had immediate email confirmation and confirmed by telephone. When I arrived to check in I was told that my room had been cancelled by a third party booking agent EVIIVO. No explanation was offered and my entire trip was ruined. Very distressed with the whole experience.

This truly is a hidden gem, its located along a quite road. The service from the members of staff, the bar is a plus, the rooms are spacious, clean and newly refurbished. We really enjoyed our stay once again and we will be back.

It was a rainy night. I had advised the personnel through email that I would arrive late evening (it was 9pm), but never received a reply once my deposit had been cashed in. After long hours travelling, I finally reached the guest house only to find it completely barricaded. So I tried knocking on the door of the bar next... More

First of all, I would like to apologise on behalf of William IV for the negative experience this guest felt they had with us, and as the manager working that evening I would especially like to apologise to to this guest that they did not feel welcome here at William IV, and would like to reassure you that this is...

I stayed here on a Monday night. The pub itself was closed, which was a relief given the other reviews I'd read. The guy on reception told me it was a busy week that week, so I think I may have been lucky. No noise at all for me, save the ambient noise of the occasional car passing. If you're... More
