The first visit to Hotel Cavendish was fine but on my second visit, I was not impressed. There were hairs on the pillows. The concierge apologised profusely and replaced them for new clean pillows. The shower was boiling hot and couldn't be turned to a moderate temperature. The blinds were dirty and dated and a stained lamp shade on an... More

We stayed here on a Friday night for easy access to my exam in the morning. Was quite a pleasant stay on the whole. No major issues during our stay. Room was clean and tidy. Staff pleasant and helpful. Was fairly quiet. Bathroom was sufficient, although the shower could have been more powerful, not much water was coming out at... More

I stayed here one night this week for work and paid £155 for the privilege. At this price, the hotel was poorly maintained and with few facilities, as well as the inevitable small rooms for an older building that had been converted. staff were, however, friendly and there was WiFi.

Not affordable as we booked last minute. The entrance to the hotel is impressive but that's where it finishes. Once you go beyond reception you are into a maze of corridors. The walls in the hall ways are damp. Our room was the best out of the 2 rooms we booked but still it looked tired and dated and in... More

Having read some of the reviews (and you have to read through the lines as some people have far to high expectations in life!) I didn't expect anything but a basic decent hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised! Yes the hotel is basic, as in there's no grand foyer or modern open rooms..but for goodness sake - when all you...

Very tired hotel. Room at the top of two flights of stairs and not very impressive. Bathroom tired, shower cubicle had signs of mould and shower head needed attention - it was unable to be held secure other than by hand and desperately needed de-limescaling. Carpets well vacuumed but very stained. One curtain needed to be attached to rIail at... More

I stayed one night in Sept 2014. The bed was unacceptably dirty and the window would not close. Also the pillows were hard and the wifi did not work. I was not offered an alternative room and I emailed the hotel for a full refund, as instructed by their receptionist who told me that he did not have the power... More

For a one night stay in London before joining a Crystal Cruise, a biz colleague told me to stay here...yes this one. So for one night I did not do my usual TA research (especially now that I have my Top Con Badge) LOCATION: Gower Street is wall to wall with converted old mansions turned hotels. It's in a terrific... More

This was my first experience for the latest London hotel euphemism for a really small room - a cabin. It was advertised as such and, with breakfast included, was a reasonable price (for London) at £75. The location is good - just 2 minutes walk from Goodge Street underground and very handy for the centre of London. The staff were... More
