The William IV is the worst hotel I've stayed at. The service is terrible. Almost all the people working there are foreigners, meaning they can help you absolutely nothing regarding the city. They promise wifi (which was important to us since we had to do a bit of work) but it did not work at all. Never. We talked to... More

I booked 3 double rooms at the beginning of December for a Saturday night for myself and my family. The hotel looks run down from outside with rubbish in the streets. All of the doors were locked when we arrived at midday and I was a little worried I'd booked into a closed hotel! The hotel has a function room... More

Well we arrived to find rubbish all on the path outside the pub. The room we were in was a good size and light but unfortunately it was terrible.the curtains were hemmed using staples, the net curtains were yellow with stains and ripped! The towels and bed sheets looked clean but on further inspection they had stains and black bits... More

We stayed at the William for the second time at the end of September 2014. We loved it the first time around, huge well decorated room, beautiful terrace with cemetery view, good breakfast and overall very convenient location if you know a little bit how to move around London. Maybe not for first timers.... I believe they might have change... More

After many years of using the William IV for overnight stays when visiting friends on nights out in the area, this will now be the last time. We used to get a room for £45, which was great value. Now however they are charging £85. This might not seem bad , but we were put in room 3. The door... More

There are three big pluses for this B & B. It's within walking distance of my daughter's home, it's only a couple of miles from my favourite bridge club and it's very inexpensive by London standards. If, however, you are expecting to stay at a pub, forget it, the pub only opens for Friday and Saturday evenings. If you're expecting... More

After visiting Kensal Green cemetery we thought we'd pop in for lunch. Pleasant large bar/lounge quiet for Sunday but it was around 3pm decided to have something to eat ignoring elderly lady at next table who was telling staff how unhappy she was with her roast lamb. Could only have roast of the day and for vegetarian was roasted vegetables!... More

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

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
