Tavistock Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Tavistock is an outstanding value hotel ideally located and easy walking and commuting distance to an enormous number of venues in Central London. A "stones throw" from Kings Cross, London Zoo, British Museum, Russell Square Station, Brunswick Center, Tottenham Court Road to Oxford Circus, etc. We have lodged at the "Tavi" the better part of thirty times over the years and we will continue to do so. The Tavi has been constantly upgraded over the years; most recently and attractive remodel of the ground floor reception. Our special request was honored, the staff is professional and this venue is clean and reliable. Superior to all other value hotels. Predictable and reliable. It is fully recommended that the lodger register with Imperial Hotels of London and book directly with Imperial Hotels to enjoy special offers, better room rates and an English breakfast to boot. In summary, price, value and location place the Tavi in the top of value hotels in London. Fully recommended.

I have stayed in the Tavistock Hotel 4 times b now, and most of the time I was happy with the stay. The rooms are well maintained even if a bit outdated in style. However, I prefer the good service and a well heated room to a modern furniture. Staff is unhesitatingly helpful, and the English breakfast is just fine. The price quality ration is very good for London.

Spent two nights here. Good check in experience. The room was good and shower was very good. Hard to beat for price and location and our deal included a very nice breakfast Bed comfortable and area. quiet Short walk to Tube

If you are looking for a hotel conveniently situated for Euston Station and St Pancras International this is a hotel for you. Breakfast is nice but nothing special. Staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean but nothing special.

We always stay at the Tavistock when in London - it's the ideal location for anyone travelling via Kings Cross, St Pancras or Euston. The hotel was as good as ever on our latest stay. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's comfortable and clean and the staff are always helpful. This time I left a dressing gown behind - I emailed the hotel and they found it and sent it on to me within a couple of days. Excellent service!

Stopped over for a night. Room had a nice aspect overlooking the square. The room was ample size with all the standard facilities. Clean, very good shower. The self serve breakfast was good and the staff attentive. I was in a single bed which was slightly rickety and just about long enough ( I'm 6ft) but comfortable and the tv reception was not good probably due to an aerial lead problem, I informed them on leaving and they said I could have at the time but I wasn't really up there to watch television anyway. Had a good nights sleep and pretty quiet in hotel. For the price of £85 it was more than adequate and I would definitely stay there again, close to Bloomsbury, British Museum Central London and three mins walk to underground at Russell Square.

I stayed in the Tavistock for 4 nights whilst attending a course at The Great Ormond St Hospital. The hotel was excellent for the budget option. I had a twin room and the rate included breakfast. My room was basic but clean with a daily service. The bathroom was well stocked with plenty of towels and the linen was spotless. The bed was comfy. The room did get really hot ( despite it being mid winter ) and this seemed to be a common complaint. I was fine to open the widow as I was at the back of the hotel but I’d imagine the traffic noise would be annoying at the front of the hotel. The breakfast was adequate with a buffet style ‘full English ‘ and the staff were really lovely and always ensured there was enough tea ! I ate in the bar/restaurant on two nights and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The free wifi was very slow however. In the lobby and restaurant it was fine but in the room it was terrible. You can pay for a faster service and I’d recommend it if you rely on it. The hotel was very conveniently situated. A five minute walk from Russell Square tube station and 10 minutes from Kings Cross. The British Museum was close by as were plenty of restaurants and cafes. I really enjoyed my stay and would most definitely stay here again. It was perfect for my needs and the price was very reasonable.

We had an 2 night stay at this hotel having stayed previously the accommodation wasn’t as good as our last stay bathroom was on the small side which l found difficult to manoeuvre with my bad leg apart from that staff friendly and helpful there was bus and rail links nearby Renovation work was being carried out in the dining room so we had to sit in the bar area, again exceptional service l would thoroughly recommended this hotel if you are looking for a London break

Absolutely fantastic stay. Hands down the best value and most comfortable stay in central London. Every single member of staff from breakfast staff, reception and housekeeping staff were super friendly, courteous and helpful. The rooms are basic but perfectly comfortable, warm, clean and you really cannot expect more for such a superb price. Beds and pillows are immaculate and so comfy. TV has many channels. Shower is lovely and strong and warm. Bathroom is immaculate. Room service menu and charge is extremely good value. Location is unbeatable. Breakfast is great- wide selection of hot and cold breakfast. Will always stay here when on business in London! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Me & my husband, booked to see Motown the musical. We decided to stay at the Tavistock hotel. Firstly the food in the bar, was not very good. The room was clean, but it was too hot. You couldn't turn the radiator down. The bed was really uncomfortable, springs coming through the mattress. Didn't sleep well at all. The breakfast was cold & poor quality. I woudn't stay here again
