Found the room basic but clean, disappointed on the view but not much can be done about that. It was a very warm, clammy day / night and unfortunately the windows could only be opened about an inch and as a result the room was too warm to get a proper nights sleep Service from all staff was first class

My fiancée and I have just returned from a 3 night weekend break in London and I must say I have no complaints about this Hotel, yes it is a bit dated and needs a little bit of a refurbishment but it was clean, the staff were excellent and very friendly and helpful, breakfast was good and there was plenty...

I visited this hotel in June for a business trip. The location is very good, as is the included breakfast. The room is small, but has tea/coffee setup. No shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom. Clean, but very musty smelling throughout. I would stay here again for a trip on my own, but would look elsewhere if I was bringing family along... More

Myself and a friend were staying for the weekend to see a show and found this hotel to be the best price for what we wanted. Based on other reviews I wasn't expecting too much and for me, everything was distinctly average. I really liked the styling of the hotel, with the art deco feel however I did think that... More

On 30 May 2014 I made an on-line booking for a double room for 1 night on 17 June at the Tavistock Hotel, London. On 10 June I became ill and needed to cancel the booking. I was unable to contact Gala Hotels by email so I left an answerphone message to cancel the room. I gave all the booking... More

We chose to visit the Tavistock as we had stayed before and it was a short walk from Euston and close to the bus routes. Our room was clean and basic but we had a comfortable nights sleep. An improvement would have been air conditioning. we found reception staff & concierge very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was adequate and enjoyable.... More

You can't beat this hotel for its location and price. It's a 4 minute walk from Euston Station and various tube stops. It is walking distance to Westminster, Leicester Square, Camden, Soho etc. It is clean and there is a vast choice for breakfast to prepare for your day in London. The lobby, bar and dining area have kept the... More

Stayed here for an event nearby and weren't feeling particularly flash so booked the Tavi. Our room was basic but it was all we needed. Breakfast was chaotic but wee rent expecting much. On the whole it was alright. We have stayed in worse places as students so didn't mind it for one night.

Avoid. Pay more somewhere else and get some basic services. You are in central London, after all. It ended up being comical it was so bad. Only in for two nights, so did not spoil holiday. Had we booked for longer, it would have ruined our trip.
