Just a 1 night stay, so not concerned about the lack of view. Rooms clean and well equipped but I would agree with one correspondent that the shower situation is ludicrous. The room is too small to be a wet room and so everything becomes wet. Don't understand the design as there is plenty of room for an enclosed shower.... More

My girlfriend and I went here as a birthday treat and unfortunately it's nice name and location don't quite match up. The walls are paper thin which meant that the rooms next door excited party chatter was easily listened heard and when the baby wasn't happy somewhere else you knew about that as well. The room although clean, tidy, and... More

This hotel is truly beautiful, the decor is modern and chic both inside the rooms and throughout the hotel. The staff are extremely helpful, and recognise that you are return customer, and do everything they can to make your stay better. The breakfast is lovely, serving everything you would expect a 5* to carry.

Location ideal for all Central London has to offer. Staff approachable and helpful at all times. Breakfast included in our deal, offering a excellent selection of cold and cooked food. Superior room spacious (814) with wonderful views over Central London. Cleanliness of room and surrounding facalities immaculate. Third visit and definately not our last.

My wife and I visited the Cavendish for one night last week (27/8/14). We have stayed at the Cavendish before, but I would just like to say how impressed I was by the help I received whilst there. At the moment I am having to use a wheelchair as I've hurt my back and am presently unable to walk very... More

We stayed The Cavendish for two nights recently and found the staff very helpful - especially the concierge at night who helped us with several minor problems - loved his British can do attitude! The electrical outlets in the room were a little scarce and a bit odd. But overall a good value and very staisfactory.

Returned once again for a 2 night weekend break at the Cavendish - not disappointed. The room was fabulous, plenty of space and excellent facilities. All the staff were there normal helpful selves - nothing too much trouble. A hearty breakfast in the restaurant really sets you up for a busy day sight seeing. Will be returning again.

Travelling for business to London for years, I have stayed in a number of wonderful London hotels. The Cavendish is not only my favorite but a place I consider to be "home" when in London. The rooms are great, the bar is fun and yet quaint, the 2nd floor lobby is a perfect place to unwind in a calm space... More

Great location, rooms were really beautifully decorated. Complimentary bath robe and slippers. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the staff were on hand to help. Waited a long time for room service though and it was really pricey.
