Charming Olde Worldy Bed and Breakfast. My single room was very small as was the en suite bathroom, but it was all that was needed for a very comfortable few days. The bed, comfortably made with cotton sheets, was very clean as were the towels. The breakfast was generous and the ladies serving very willing. It happened to be quite... More

The rooms are small and not sound proof, we heard everyone toss, turn and grunt from above and below us. The room was small and the wash room was tiny self contained module you might find in a caravan. A bottle of water was 2 pounds. We arrived late on first night and left early on last day. Breakfast at... More

The hotel was awesome, oldstyle english building and inside was great! I liked the style. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The 1p room a bit small, but you can expect this in an old english city building. Subway is only 6min walk down the road and brings you to the centre in 10min. There is a shopping mall with... More

Stayed in this B&B for 4 nights whilst in London. The House is set in a beautiful neighborhood, so its a fantastic walk back to the B&B looking at all the old houses. With hotel prices so high we decided to stay in a B&B as we only intended sleeping. The Rooms are clean and the breakfast is ok. Bathroom... More

Great location. Agreed with other reviews- decor bit dated and tired, also with previous comment that you can shower, go to toilet and brush teeth all at same time, ensuite very small, I managed being 5.2 and slight build but others may struggle. Bed clean and very comfortable despite headboard being broken off, but we slept really well. Staff lovely.... More

My wife and I stayed there to visit our daughter who lives locally. The reservation was made on line very efficiently and at a cheaper price than many of the dedicated hotel websites. The hotel is welll situated for visitors to London. It is in a quiet safe area and close to both tube and bus routes, with several small... More

I've stayed in Dawson hotel for four nights. It is located in quiet area 5 mins walk from Finchely road underground. It is clean, suitable for young couple. If I visit London again, it will be one of my first options.

Unless there is a drastic change in the management of this hotel, avoid staying there. Caravan type bathroom, unclean to set it mildly, unusable. The staff seemed ok, but don't count on the manager to help, he ignored the complaints. Worst experience ever regarding cleanliness and issues with the manager. A pity since the hotel could be nice in this... More

This was our third stay at the Dawson House Hotel. It's perfectly situated in an upmarket area in inner London. The Tube and amenities are under 10 min walk. The rooms are quaint and views of the garden are a delight. The only negative is the bathroom which is very small. The breakfast is very well presented with ample choice.... More

Once through the door its very dated In all communal areas, and the rooms also. The single room I stayed in was compact and the bathroom resembled one... More
