I have stayed at this hotel most weeks since January 2018. Booking is best done direct on their website and the hotel is one of about 6 in a group who operate in the same general area of Holborn and all at fixed rates for the rooms, highly unusual in London. The Tavistock offers a single for £85 and a double for £111 this includes free wifi and breakfast. There is usually last minute availability, which I tested during weather disruption and got rooms on the day no problem. The location is excellent 5 minutes from Euston Station, about 10 minutes from Kings Cross and Holburn tube is about 10 minutes away. Close to a range of restaurant's and shops, you couldn't ask for a better location. Breakfast is excellent, good choice, rooms are a little dated but always very clean and they are refurbishing some rooms. The room service is exceptionally good value with a £2 tray charge and a burger at just £8, quality again excellent. What really makes hotel though are the rally lovely staff, so pleasant and helpful, and genuinely offering excellent hospitality. I will be staying here until August and look forward to having this as my second home for that period. Recommended for tourists and business travellers alike.

Tavistock was a very nice hotel for a first timer, lovely outside view, good clean bedrooms, nice breakfast, although, i would have liked a smile from the waiters now and then, they all looked miserable. The bathtub was a really a nice surprise for me, the bath filled up in a matter of minutes which allowed me to have a nice relaxing bathtime. They also have free wi-fi. One thing I recommend though is to try and get a room away from the kitchen, we were placed above it and all night we use to smell Indian food.

Room Tip: Do not get a room above the kitchen if you don't like the smell of Indian food.

We stayed for 4 nights when we had only booked for 2 Because of travel disruption we decided that it was more convenient to stay the two more nights where we were because we liked the hotel and it was convenient to do the extras from this base
We were advised to book on line even though we were in the hotel !,
I would certainly come to this hotel again as everything was totally unpretentious and that includes the staff.

Room Tip: The higher the room the less noise from traffic

Stayed for one night. Nice clean room, it was quite warm and we couldn’t find anywhere to turn heating down, once windows opened it was bearable. Breakfast nice, very friendly staff. Great central location. Will definitely return.

We stayed at the Tavistock as part of a package deal and this was our fifth time there. The location is perfect as you are within walking distance of several underground lines,the British museum and other sights as well as lots of places to eat. We know that the Tavistock is a no frills hotel and the rooms feel rather small and cramped (perhaps because we are now used to staying in more upmarket hotels) but the room was warm and the shower was powerful and hot and we asked for a rubber mat for the bath and it was provided straight away. The continental breakfast is not great but adequate and the breakfast room was not warm enough but it was exceptionally cold weather. The staff are helpful and wifi is now available in all rooms. The instructions to access the wifi didn't work but the IT support available by phone sorted out any problems. Gavin and Mark at the porters desk were particularly helpful getting a staple out of my shoe which required some effort and a variety of tools. That was much appreciated.

Room Tip: Get a room on an upper floor away from the bowling alley
