Stayed here 13 September 2014 as attending Proms in the Park. Easy to book, although did receive a message 48 hours before to state debit card could not be accepted. However, on re-entering details of same card, no problems. Funds were taken and listed as pending and then presentation of same card on the day completed payment. Reception staff helpful... More

My husband & I stayed overnight in this hotel on 23/7/14. The room was clean but quite small although the beds are very shaky & the bathroom very compact but clean and usable. The air con unit was very useful as it was difficult to have the windows open as the traffic was very noisy (I live in a busy... More

Just stayed here for one night. The hotel was perfect. It was clean, fresh looking and in a great location. The staff at reception were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast, continental, was fresh and on time. I will stay again.

We stayed here in early June, 2014. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small, but newly renovated and worked well. The location was great - close to the Goodge Street Station and the British Museum. The breakfast consisted of a choice of three kinds of cereal, coffee, tea or hot chocolate, fruit cocktail, and a basket of... More

Cheap, but you get what you pay for - a horrible room. It was tiny, and I couldn't even sit down on the toilet without keeping the door open. Dated decor, small uncomfortable bed, poor amenities. Overall, disgusting.

The rooms were ok, clean and tidy. We booked two rooms, the double on the top floor was ok, new ensuite. Triple on top floor had more space. Air con unit, which didn't put cold air in the room. Which was a shame as it was warm. Beds was ok and we found it clean. But the continental breakfast was... More

Excellent location for Bloomsbury - stayed for a quick visit as it was handy for Euston. All is basically OK - clean and spacious room, slightly cramped shower room, but that's not a big problem. Matress was a bit thin but the worst aspect was that the breakfast was poor - no other way fo describing it. At this price,... More

I stayed last night at the Gower House Hotel for a business trip. Its ideally situated about 10 minutes walk from Euston Station and 5 minutes walk from Goodge Street Underground and lots of shops and restaurants. My single room was tiny but had everything I needed including tea and coffee. The bathroom was minuscule but very clean and newly... More

Why are you asked to pay as you enter the hotel? The answer is because if you waited, you'd leave within minutes. The only plus point about this hotel is the location. Old beds. No room to swing anything. Doubtful cleanliness. Took ten minutes to close what was called double glazing to reduce the tedious road noise.

Noisy, dingy, dirty. Chewing gum on the walls and hairs all over the bathroom floor. A total rip off. For the money you pay you should definitely get more. And who finishes serving breakfast on a Sunday at 9.30am! Avoid unless your the kind of person used to slumming it on a floor or sofa.
