First, don't get caught that this hotel is positioned to be confused with another one of the same name in Mayfair! I had an "Executive Double". The place has a stranage transitory aire, my room had nice garden view but the carpet was dirty, no where to sit comfortably, dusty and tatty table, cramped shower, filthy mugs. But this was...

Got a room here as a stopover due to its proximity to Euston and having snagged a supposedly cheap internet rate. Given that I could have paid the same price at the Travelodge up the road, from now on I'll always err on the side of the chain. The hotel was unbearably hot, my room was the smallest I've ever...

The Cavendish "Hotel" is definately not a four-star Hotel, a guest house or B&B at best. After trawling through the web this was the cheapest acommodation in the area so we decided to take a punt. The room was on the very top floor at the back, ideal for minimal traffic noise but a killer on the old legs. Breakfast...

I had a tiny room; admittedly there must be better ones, but I suspect none of them have carpets. Certainly the room above me did at least have a chair - I know this because I could hear it scraping across the floor as the occupants tried to navigate around. I was wary of the breakfast sausage, but I don't...

We were at this hotel for two nights. You could say that the room was enough for two people and warm but I should argue that other faults can't compensate for its 'dignities', if you can name it as such. We were astonished to see: 1. small rooms 2. awful water pressure (toilet included) 3. very bad smell 4. dirty...

I read other Tripadvisor reviews too late to cancel my booking which, fortunately, was only for one night.I had booked through a website (not Tripadvisor) which had this listed in the 4 star category-and I'm not confusing it with The Cavendish -when it ought to be under Guesthouses?B&bs. It came as a severe shock ! The small public area was...

1. They charged me twice on my credit card before I even checked-in 2. The room is small and the bedsheet is dirty 3. When I notified them of my checking-out the hotel a few days earlier than my original reservation 24 hours in advance, they charged me an extra night for that even if they told me earlier that...

This hotel is generally tired and down-at-heel. All carpets are threadbare and paintwork scuffed. On a mild september day, the entire hotel was hot and humid. Seeing my single room, I assumed that I had been allocated a cabin room in error. I checked with reception and was told that, no cabin rooms are even smaller. I felt humbled by...
