Booked here for a short work trip, as i needed to be near Kings Cross station. Lovely room in a lovely hotel, in a very quiet, leafy area, super close to Bloomsbury. the staff were excellent, and i have absolutely no complaints about the room or the hotel - it was as stress free a stay as possible.

Stayed here because accommodation was booked for me. Narrow, winding staircases with no lift - made me worried about what would happen in a fire. Bathroom was not clean - previous occupants (or cleaner) had emptied red wine in the basin and this had not been cleaned. Shower was tiny- and leaked. But the worst was the lack of sound... More

“Location was great, convenient. Quiet and leafy area. Beautiful private park across the road. Close to Russell Square station, although Kings Cross station is easier as there are not so many stairs like RS. Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable. Staff were welcoming and extremely helpful. WiFi good. The breakfast was extensive and excellent! Check out the local... More

I first stayed here 20+ years ago, and found the place has been upgraded a lot since then. Good, clean, comfortable room, well set up for a visiting academic (academics and postgraduate students from the Commonwealth are the original target customers of Goodenough College and its predecessors). Very helpful staff--I arrived far too early for the check-in time because of... More

I stay in the William Goodenough House for two nights in early October and really like the location and the spaciousness of the accommodation. The accommodation is only 10-15 minutes walk from Kings Cross Station, which is handy for people like myself coming from Scotland. However, the house is in a quiet square and my room overlook a lovely spacious... More

Visited in September for a week with my teen daughter. Bookended by the Dickens Museum at one end of the street and The Foundling Museum across the green, Goodenough Club features high ceilings, helpful staff and great curb appeal. We had a pleasant well maintained room. Nice coffee drawer. Ground floor room so easy to get luggage in and out.... More

I stayed here with my wife in October for a weekend and we really enjoyed this place. The location is great within a short walking distance to St. Pancras/Kings Cross, still in a very quite neighborhood. Lamb's Conduit Street with all its shops, cafes & restaurants is nearby, 5 min walking distance. Breakfast is served in "The Great Hall" which... More

Large, comfortable room with usual toiletries, biscuits, tea & coffee The bonus of fridge in room with complimentary water is definitely a plus, the downside is that the water and biscuits are only available on the first night, stay 1 night only and check out, you don't feel it, when your working away from home for several days and missing...

I booked this hotel for two nights to take my 85 year old Mother for a break in London. We liked the photos of Georgian architecture and thought we would pay a bit more for some interesting rooms with maybe a view over the Square. But our room was in the modern annexe which while perfectly adequate had no character... More

We recently took our daughter to London for the start of her studies. Since she is staying in Goodenough College we booked into the Club to spend the night. The location is extremely good, in the centre of London, close to underground stations, near St Pancras railway station, near to many of London's universities, hospitals, near British Museum etc. and...
