I am looking forward to my 5th visit of 18 days to The Tavistock in July. I love this hotel. As other reviewers have pointed out it has state of the art 1950's decor and looks a little worn in places. However, from my point of view that makes it comfortable. The hotel and staff are both very welcoming.
The location could not be better - 3 minute walk to the tube and served by several buses. The square across the street is beautiful and has benches allowing a restful visit. Sunday afternoons reading The Observer in Tavistock Square is very relaxing.
The breakfast is excellent. The breakfast staff are very friendly and some of them are long term. Don't forget your Breakfast Card,
There are no little bottles of body wash or shampoo. I drop by a drug stores (chemist?) and buy a supply to last my visit. The cost is low compared to the savings on the room rate.
I have researched extensively and cannot find another hotel that is better value. Accomodation that costs a similar amount usually has a drawback such as no elevator and narrow walk up staircases.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on Tavistock Square Gardens the hotel offers stunning views as well as offering remarkable value for a historic Bloomsbury hotel. A great choice for business or leisure guests. You will find the Woolf & Whistle - a friendly bar nestled in the Art Deco ground floor of the Tavistock Hotel. Retaining the hotel's original 1920's features with a modern and elegant twist, Woolf & Whistle takes its inspiration from the famous 20th century writer Virginia Woolf, who once lived and worked in the neighbourhood. Providing a welcoming haven to our guests, locals and visitors to the area; our pub serves classic cocktails alongside traditional pub favourites in a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. After all, a wise woman once wrote, ‘’One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.’’ The Tavistock is perfectly located for the health club and American style bowling alley as well as the exciting sites of the capital. ... more less
