I stay in central London twice or three times a year, for business. My first time in this place, and a huge disappointment. Even though they advertise free wireless, it is only available in the lobby area and the signal is bad. The room is basic, and without a fridge in July, there are not many options to get cool...

The Tavistock is a large hotel with a stylish art deco entrance and bar, and is situated in a perfect Bloomsbury location, overlooking the delightful Tavistock Square. By London standards, it offers good value for money, though the rooms are fairly basic and there is no air conditioning. Nor does it offer additional frills like shampoos and shower gels, etc....

After booking this hotel for its central location I was looking forward to a fun filled weekend in London with a group of friends. This joy turned to horror upon dealing with the staff at this hotel. RUDE, CONTRADICTORY, SARCASTIC AND PATRONISING are the words I can publish in this review. This really was the worst customer service I have...

This is a nice, well priced, period hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. I think the rooms might be very hot and stuffy in summer as in May it was pretty warm. My room was basic and clean which was fine. A good breakfast. I was able to leave my case in the store room for the day I arrived before...

I would often stay here for work of leisure and every time found it to be consistent. The lady, Tessa at the reception was the nicest, politest woman I have ever met at any major London hotel. The rooms were always clean and tidy with fresh towels waiting in my room. Regardless of the time I arrived (often late) the...

I have been staying at the Tavistock for many years. It is a good hotel and the service is friendly and the rooms are good. One thing that I do finc annoying is that your WIFI is very difficult to connect to and it is a pain to have to log on using a different user name and password each...

We arrived at the hotel around 1.30pm and were given a double room on the 8th floor, my goodness it was so small and extremely hot - no air con!! We rang to ask if we could change rooms and were given a twin room on the 6th floor which was a slight improvement although the beds were extremely soft....

Very disappointing experience with this hotel! The location may be good, but not much else is apart from that. The staff at reception couldn't be less welcoming. I was handed the card to the room and a bored receptionist didn't even bother to tell me anything else, not even the breakfast hours or place. The room was another bad surprise....
