Stayed for one night for an early start on Eurostar. Ground floor room was very comfortable and although small, the facilities are of a high standard. Lovely breakfast with friendly and efficient service. Thanks Darren for the return of the scarf we left behind.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor room (18) if you have mobility problems.

I have visited several times this hotel and continue to do so for business. I cannot fault this place, whether it is reception, the rooms, the showers or breakfast. It is Darren's attention to detail that is key to keeping his hotel standing out a mile from most London hotels in a comparable price bracket.

The location of this B&B is perfect! Literally within two minutes walk from King’s Cross St. Pancras station (look for the Burger King – this road is Argyle St). King’s Cross St. Pancras is great for the tube and Eurostar. Try to get room numbers 4, 5 or 5a as these are on the first floor (one flight of stairs from reception). Four is probably better as 5 and 5a are next to each other and behind a separate fire door (so you can hear when the doors are being open and shut – not a big deal though). (There are also rooms on the ground floor I believe and more on upstairs on the second and third floors). The rooms are warm, have a hand basin in them and heavy curtains to keep in the warmth. Traffic noise is not a problem. Space is limited but manageable if you have backpacks rather than large suitcases (helps with the stairs too – these are a bit steep and a little narrow but are really fine). There is a toilet and shower/toilet on the lower floor – there was never anyone there when we needed to use it (there are other toilets/showers around the other areas too). Towels are provided as is shower gel. The full English breakfast is simple but tasty and filling and comes with a smile. The free wifi worked well. At 70 pounds per night, the value seems right - small room and shared bathroom/toilet but very friendly service, comfortable and warm room, beds and shower and again in a fabulous location.

Have stayed here a couple of times as my son is at UCL and in halls just around the corner. Hotel is basic and small, but the rooms are clean and functional. The staff are very friendly and remember you have stayed there before. Breakfast is made fresh in the kitchen as you wait and is perfectly reasonable. Great value for money all round

I arrived about 11pm and was welcomed warmly by the front-desk staff. I had booked a single room with no en-suite bathroom. The room was predictably small but very clean. The bathroom was two steps across the landing but was a little aeroplane-like in its size and composition - shower, toilet and small sink. I didn't try the TV in the room but the wireless internet was free and worked very well. Some bits of decor in the bathroom and bedroom were in need of patching up but not to the detriment of cleanliness.

Unfortunately, the walls were paper-thin and I had to listen to a noisy couple yakking away until about 1am, hearing every word. Although there was good quality glazing on the windows, there was still a lot of police/ambulance siren noise audible throughout the evening in the room. Not the hotel's fault, of course.

The bed was very small (I'm 5'11") and the mattress not really the most comfortable. I was also quite hot and that was with the heating off - probably because I was on the top floor of the building.

In the morning, the breakfast was first-class. Exceptionally friendly and polite waiting staff brought me fresh orange juice, tea, copious amounts of decent toast - and, best of all for ANY hotel - COLD milk! Thank goodness! The sausage, bacon, egg and beans was great.

I wouldn't necessarily rush back here because I think I could probably get a bigger room for what I paid for this, but at the last-minute, it was OK value.

Room Tip: I would hope that the double rooms are a little bit more roomy than the single one I had.
