Third weekend visit. Basic but adequate. Friendly staff. No mention of the building works on the website (have to go to floor 1 and walk along corridor and down stairs to get to breakfast room - fine for me but what are alternative arrangements for disabled?). Breakfast food is a good offering and reasonable quality for the price but the...

I stayed at Tavistock Hotel for the second time. It's in Bloomsbury, very well located, near Russell Square Station. At the moment, they are refurbishing many areas of the hotel. I hope to see it redecorated! The room was clean. The staff was kind. Free wifi. English breakfast was included.

Terrible. Terrible. Terrible. Unfriendly staff. Breakfast room is inaccessible (not told when booking). Was sat down at breakfast to clean cutlery and used napkins on the sideplates. I've attached a photo of the bathroom which gives an indication of the standard of a double room. Woken up by early morning building works that shake the front of the building (not...

Within walking distance to central London and Kings' Cross St Pancras this hotel offers nice but basic rooms. Breakfast was also nice but basic and on a busy morning you'll have to be prepared to queue for a while before getting a table. Staff is friendly and helpful.

All of 10 minutes walk from the Eurostar terminal and a nice looking building. Big upgrade to the reception area going on but no impact on our sleep. Breakfast basic but really good value room for location.

The room we were given at the front had a bow window and a nice view of the square. It was clean but the beds are too small and uncomfortable with only one flat pillow each.

Booked in for bed and breakfast. Breakfast is good quality and staff efficient. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Disco in basement is too loud to sleep. I'm a good sleeper but it is impossible to sleep. I would warn anyone hoping to get any sleep to get another hotel. I wouldn't book this hotel again.
