We were a party of 4 and stayed at the Gower House Hotel over night on Saturday 12th November so that we could attend the remembrance service at the Cenotaph on the 13th. The location of the hotel is perfect for the centre of London being just a few minutes walk from Goodge Street underground station. If you dont mind...

Room on third floor but no lift. Room very small. Side of bed right up against window so had to crawl over to get to my side. Bed very narrow. No wardrobe space. Nowhere to put case except floor. Ensuite very cramped. A large person might have to get dried in room. No hairdrier but one available from reception (if...

The staff here are wonderful and were very understanding when we expressed our concern over the softness of the bed but as hotel was full there was little they could do. In order to help rectify this we decided to put the mattress on the floor and discovered the bed frame was actually broken. We had already decided to sleep...

This is a compact hotel in a good location for the British Museum etc. My room was small, but fine for a business trip. And I was pleased with the ferocious air conditioning which kept the room cool during the heat wave while I was there. And my room was quiet because it faced away from the busy Gower Street....

The hotel was very well situated for tube stations and Kings Cross and within walking distance of many sites. The rooms were a bit small but clean with shampoo and shower gel in the shower. Hair dryers were advertised on the web site but there wasn't one in the room. Storage space was tiny and there could be more drawer...

Three of us adults stayed in the Superior Triple room. We found it perfect for our needs. The bathroom is bright and clean. The room is exactly as portrayed on the hotel website. It was great to have the big sash windows looking out onto the garden. We heard no noise except a fox!! We did not have the breakfast...

Lovely hotel situated near 2 tube stops. Only continent breakfast. We were on the 3rd floor which was a lot of steps for my elderly mother so do check. Clean room with air con which was a God send. Very reasonable price would stay here again

This hotel is not far from Euston station but also not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle so the location is good. We had a room in the basement which we were told was also at the back of the hotel so street noise wouldn't be a problem. Fantastic. The room is basic but kept clean and...

Oldish hotel, very basic. Friendly staff. I got a double room instead of single, but room was in basement so couldn't make any calls (SMS's were fine). Wifi ok. No hair conditioner nor hair dryer. Continental breakfast. Near theaters so taxi from Westend doesn't cost much.
