We chose this B&B for it's proximity to Euston - not wanting to drag suitcases on the underground.
A short walk from Euston, and even closer to King's Cross and St. Pancras, coupled with promises of a cooked breakfast, an en-suite bathroom (certain rooms only), and good reviews, we felt it would be a good choice. The Meridiana is very dated but clean.
Our good-sized, family room, in the basement and next to the breakfast room, had plenty of drawer space (although the drawers should, at least, be vacuumed between each occupancy) and a double wardrobe with ample clothes hangers. The mattresses were very firm and spare pillows were provided. Being so close to under and over-ground stations meant that there was a constant rumbling of trains so light sleepers need ear plugs.
Other than cornflakes and muesli and toast, the cooked breakfast on offer was 'an English breakfast'. Not everyone wants to start the day with a fried egg, fried (poor quality) sausage, fried bacon and baked beans, swimming in fat. On the second day, I asked if it were possible to have scrambled egg. It wasn't a problem but, this too, was swimming in grease. On the third day, it seemed that a boiled egg did prove to be a problem. Only full fat milk was available so, with no fruit or yoghurt as an option, those who suffer with high cholesterol should give this B&B a wide berth. The breakfast room seats only 17 people and guests are often left waiting their turn; some just gave up on having breakfast.
Be warned that a 5% charge is made to those wishing to pay their bill by credit card.
