Tavistock Hotel is an easy walk from London Kings Cross station. The outside could do with some love (at night, the letters are missing) but inside, it looks nicer. The room rates are on the cheaper side for London, and there is the option of the breakfast buffet included. When booking, we also received a voucher for a 3 course meal on the first night in the hotel restaurant, which could be a good idea if you are looking to save and dine out.
The room is fairly small and contains all of the main amenities that you expect a room should have. The beds are oddly low to the ground and have plastic sheeting underneath, which can be very noisy if you tend to move around in your sleep. The bathroom is small but the shower works well. The TV didn’t really work – although you don’t expect to watch much TV if you are on holiday, it would be a nice feature to have. The rooms are generally clean.
The breakfast buffet is good value and there is plenty on offer – just avoid the tea and coffee!
I didn’t really love the room, but for somewhere cheap and in a good location, this is a good option. It is a basic room, you do get what you pay for, but it can be hard to find cheap accommodation in London, and it leaves more money for your holiday!
Amenities included – TV, shower gel, soap, body lotion and shampoo, towels, tea, coffee, kettle, hairdryer.
