I am in America and I emailed my credit card number for a deposit on a reservation that I had made and the hotel quickly charged my account for one night's visit - as expected. I ended up having to cancel the reservation (within the required timeline) and was told that the Dawson House will not refund any of my...

We stayed here for seven nights (June 27th-July 4th) and can easily state that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dawson House Hotel. The rooms were very quaint and welcoming. In fact, we found the overall interior of the hotel, including our room, to be serenely charming and unique. Being quite picky about cleanliness, I must say that we...

We have recently returned from a 3-night stay at the Dawson House Hotel in London. We found it to be excellent value for money. We stayed in a family room &, as far as London sizes go, it is more than adequate. However, the ' bathroom' is ludicrous. It is possible to sit on the seat of the toilet while...

We just returned from 5 nights at the Dawson House Hotel. The location is good (about a 10 minute pleasant walk from a Tube station) and the rooms adequate. What really shines about this place is the friendly and helpful staff and the huge and yummy breakfast! Not to mention the low price (especially for London). The bathrooms in the...

I shared the Twin Room at the top of the second floor with my friend for nine nights in early April 2006. The location was perfect for visiting my daughter in nearby Hampstead, yet we were no more than twenty minutes by Tube to many of the sites. We were very happy with the rate of 66.5 GBP a night...

Date: January 3, 2006 Reviewer: TripAdvisor Member, USA I recently returned from a trip to London where my elderly mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dawson House Hotel, a lovely renovated Victorian Town House located quite near the Finchley Road Tube Station and right on a bus route, thus featuring easy access to Central London as well...

I have stayed at the Dawson House Hotel twice two years in a row. The first time I stayed alone, on my first visit overseas and the second time with my friend. Both times I was overwhelmed by the hospitality and care provided. I have never met nicer inn keepers or had such a hearty breakfast. The building is just...

This little hotel is such an excellent find. It is on a beautiful, quiet tree-lined street with lovely gardens. The staff is so kind and helpful. The breakfast keeps you going all day. My single room was spotless and the bed had a lovely bedspread with elephants on it. It was a pleasant walk to the Tube station (ten minutes)...

We stayed at the Dawson House Hotel for 3 nights, and enjoyed our visit very much. The service was good, the hotel was clean, and the breakfasts were tasty. This area in London is quiet, and the tube line is only 2 blocks away. We would recommend the Dawson to anyone. The only thing to consider is that the bathroom...

It would be an excellent place to stay in London. Outside the center, but comfortable for transports (ten minutes from buses and tube). Staff and owners are very kind, and you can have a great breakfast and nice rooms. But the bathrooms of some rooms are really the most little I've ever seen. All the facilities in the place of...
