When I first exited the Shadwell DLR to find Cable Street Inn, I was not very comfortable with the surroundings, but once I managed to locate the B&B and got myself oriented, all was well. Stayed here three nights. While eating breakfast in the mornings, I could see that most of the people passing by on the street were young... More

This charming B&B with three very spacious rooms (ours had a four poster bed) was a wonderful place from which to explore London. Very close to London Bridge, and with nice restaurants a short 5-10 minute walk away. For example, we had some of the best Indian food we've ever had at the Spice Cafe, recommended by our host, Julian.... More

We used the entire inn for a weekend in London with our grown kids and it proved a good base of operations for our short stay. Very close to the DLR station. The rooms were all spacious and beautifully decorated and there was a good continental breakfast. Like many places in London there was no air conditioning which can get... More

The Cable Street Inn was the perfect location for our recent short stay in London. A short walk from the Shadwell DLR station and only half an hour from the West End by tube and DLR we were both close to everything and removed from the bustle when we wanted a break. Our host Julian was very welcoming and provided... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Cable Street Inn and I hope we will get to go back soon. Our room was spacious, clean and so comfortable. Breakfast is light but fresh and the location is fantastic, within a block of the tube and the overground. We stayed very busy during our trip and it... More

We stayed at here for three nights. The rooms are spacious and lovely, the host full of good information and fun stories, and it is just a half block from the Shadwell station of the underground. We took a wonderful walk across the nearby London Tower Bridge and along the river to the Globe. Lots to see and do. We... More

A delightful place to stay particularly on our first visit to London. Easy to walk into the city and explore the East End and it's quirky little pubs. The rooms were spacious and everything we required. The host was very accommodating pointing out local pubs, restaurants and transport - also local history of Inn and area. Quiet oasis in a... More

Staying at this reasonably priced inn meant that we could have 5 nights in London, a real treat! A good hotel is simply too expensive, and generally with rooms much too small. Our stay was perfect; our room was a good size, beautifully decorated and very clean. The bed was the best we had on our 6 week holiday! The... More

Couldn't fault a thing. We stayed for New Year's Eve last year and compared to many hotels the price was reasonable, as many people I know paid over £300 for small rubbish rooms, whilst we paid the standard price for a beautiful room!! Charming host, welcomed us and made us feel comfortable and happy. Gave us advice on Places to... More

We recently stayed two nights at the Cable Street Inn and loved it. It was fun to discover the East End of London and easy to get to the more typical sites with a short walk to the tube. The Inn was full of character and rooms nicely decorated. Breakfast was just right to get us going for another busy... More
