Recent guest reviews

Were in London for Ideal Homes Exhibition so stayed only one night - which was enough !!! Room small and pokey although clean, ensuite bathroom small, hot water and good shower. Breakfast room very small and English breakfast option cold and basic. Central for transport so did the job.

The location is fantastic. It's less than a minutes walk to Kings Cross, and the surrounding area is full of places to eat. The staff were perfectly friendly. The room was small but neat and clean, with a TV, hair-dryer and tea/coffee facilities. We didn't hear any noise from being in such a busy location but the room above us was very noisy! The bathroom was very small but clean and functional. As is normal for the buildings around there the stairs are quite narrow and there isn'r a lift so not recommended for anyone with limited mobility or large suitcases. Breakfast is included - small but well cooked, with a few cereals on offer too and choice of tea, coffee and orange juice. You do have to share tables as the space is small. Overall I would definitely go back, for the location and price that included breakfast and wifi it was great!

great location (near main train station, underground and sightseeing places), great breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, restaurants close to the area, reasonable price for London and that area

Stayed for five days. Truly satisfied. Great location of hotel, minutes away from King's Cross. Friendly staff and atmosphere. Room comfortable and always clean. Great Breakfast. Keep up the great work.

The hotel is handily placed near Kings Cross Station. The room that we stayed in was very small, just about enough room for the bed as small dressing table and walking space around the bed. The bathroom wasn't much bigger than a wardrobe. If you are claustrophobic, it's one to avoid. I do understand that given the price and the area, you'd need to pay a lot more to get a larger room. The hotel appeared clean. The cooked breakfast, whilst well cooked, was very small on portion size, so matched the room!

Very good place, stayed here for 5 days and enjoyed our stay. The reception was very nice and welcoming, food was good. Our room was clean and warm. Right next to kings cross, underground and restaurants. Truly enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back soon!

Basic hotel at a good price in pricey London. But minimalist. Small rooms. Small bathrooms Small English breakfast. Clean and seemingly secure. Only issue is the risk of noise as the walls are thin but our experience was not bad at all. One of many similar places along Argyle St., convenient to all sorts of transport. Not for people who cannot handle stairs.

I stayed at Fairway Hotel for one week in November, I could not imagine that it is located in such a perfect zone of London because in 2 minutes you can reach the King's Cross station and visit the city easily. The staff is very kind and helpful, always ready to help you with informations. The room was quite small but that is what we expected, we had the private bathroom in it and the water was really hot! They provide gluten free bread for breakfast in case you cannot eat gluten, like me. We had a very good stay and hope to come back in future! Sabrina

The accommodation was very cramped - tiny room/shower - but pleasant hosts - clean rooms .Breakfast was an experience as could only handle a dozen guests at one time - but food choice okay. Overall - a budget B&B - so for the price was what you would expect - also 4 levels and no lift - so definitely cannot accommodate disadvantaged guests - we were on 3rd level - 37 stairs to room -quite a climb if you are aged

Took a single room, it is really tiny! Forces you to keep tidy otherwise there won't be any space for anything. The bathroom is small but serviceable, shower was nice and hot with decent pressure. The room had basic furnishing and adequate storage, albeit rather old fashioned looking. If there was some efficient design, the room would feel a lot bigger. The location is excellent, just a minute walk to the Kings Cross St Pancras station entrance, just outside HSBC, which leads to a short tunnel into the station. Use this instead of crossing the road above ground because the number of pedestrian stop lights just to cross this tiny stretch is laughable. Trust me, use the tunnel. Breakfast is the same everyday (English fry-up, cereal, cheese, tomatoes and toast) but you can change a bit like how you want your eggs done. Very nice and filling - hardly felt hungry up until 2pm sometimes! Steep and narrow wooden stairs which feel a bit lopsided and soft (not in a good way). Not easy to climb up if you are elderly or have knee problems. Ask for a lower floor or ground floor unit if need be. Overall, it's good value for money for the location with basic and decent amenities.
