Best I have found in London on my budget. Convenient for bus and tube into city centre. The room and en-suite were clean and tidy. The room was a double which gave plenty of room for a single person. Buffet breakfast was satisfactory but the complimentary evening meal was very disappointing. This was taken at Saracens restaurant in the early... More

Sorry this place is awful. Badly in need of refurbishment (blankets on beds and pillows are old and uncomfortable). The room was dirty, noisy and lacks comfort. The breakfast is awful - tinned fruit, soggy toast and one cup of cold coffee!

Room was ok by London standards but staff were at best indifferent. I needed to check out before breakfast started and there was absolutely no way they would consider providing even a bread roll from the restaurant the night before so I could have at least something in the morning. Staff were totally disinterested in helping me and I felt... More

The hotel is simple and in a good location. Although some of the staff were quite rude and unhelpful. Breakfast was ok however more variety is needed. Rooms are satisfactory although they need updating. I would recommend this hotel only if you are looking for a short stay in London :)

My daughter and I visited London and the Tavistock Hotel for 4 days. After reading the reviews I was a bit worried. On arrival check in was efficient Our room was ready even though we arrived earlier than the check in time. Room 614 straight across from the elevator, small bathroom, separate loo both clean and well kept. Only had... More

Old building, rooms tired and don't feel clean. Very noisy when window is open. Good location. Close to museums and central London. Wouldn't recommend or go back. Breakfast - table was dirty, food not nice.

I got a weekend deal for this hotel. Good location, room reasonable size, bathroom small & yes the smallest size bath towels ever - my friend commented 'no bigger than a hankie'. The staff were on the not so friendly side but it is a big hotel. Breakfast was okay, food was better in one of the group's other hotels.... More

We arrived at the hotel around lunch time to be greeted by one of the most rudest receptionist ever. There were 12 of us staying in the hotel which was booked through a company that organises hen/stag weekends. When we booked we were asked if we would like an early check in time We were told that 4 rooms were... More
