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...

For what we paid we couldn't expect more from this hotel. The room was clean, the staff pleasant and breakfast was good. We would certainly return to this hotel.

I have to mention that this Hotel claims to be 4 stars,but has tiny rooms no minibar,no lift .... We got the tiny room(10 sq m(100 sq feet) including bathroom) that other customers mentioned as well in their reviews and they told us it's a double room. So besides having bad service they take paing customers for fools. The breakfast...

The location, near the West End, University of London, and the City, is the only good thing about this hotel. The stair carpet is threadbare, the single room I had was tiny and cramped, the safe had been left locked by the previous occupant, so could not be used, there is no air-conditioning, so on a hot August night, I...

Shocking. A room that has to be seen to be believed. Kind of the opposite of a tardis - smaller inside than outside. No room to move. Shower room even more useless. If small is your bag though then one thing you will be delighted with will be the full english breakfast - one rasher of bacon , a sausage,...

Really cross with Cavendish hotel, have stayed there before and had large double room at the back which I purposefully requested again as it is much quieter. On arrival we were allocated a TINY box room which was at the front over looking Gower street, very noisy and boiling hot. When I complained we were moved to sister hotel The...

stayed here for 2 nights and it was terrible my room was minute, supposed to be a double, but the bed was far too small for a double.
