This was the second time we've stated at the Tavistock. It is very well situated in Bloomsbury, a short distance from the nearest tube station and easily walkable from the West End (about 20 -25 mins). The hotel has an attractive, stylish Art Deco reception area and restaurant- most of the fixtures/ fittings appear original. The room was fairly basic,...

This hotel has the potential to be a fantastic hotel. It has a superb situation in central London, but it is very tired looking. There are some wonderful art decor features which need renovated, the corridor carpets looked sad, the bar could do with some new furniture, and the television in the bedroom had enough dust on the screen to...

We booked this hotel and we didn't think it would be much good but we were totally wrong when we walked into the hotel. Friendly staff at reception straight forward check-in and up to the room on the 7th floor, the hotel is like the tardis-bigger on the inside! The room was perfect, 2 beds, bathroom-shower/bath everything you need. The...

My first impression was that I had booked into a tatty hotel, later I was able to see the positive features and was not at all displeased. The corridors yes look tatty, particularly the doors which refurbishing, replacing or at least a good coat of paint would work wonders. The bathroom was very uncomfortable and small, but eventually came to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on Tavistock Square Gardens the hotel offers stunning views as well as offering remarkable value for a historic Bloomsbury hotel. A great choice for business or leisure guests. You will find the Woolf & Whistle - a friendly bar nestled in the Art Deco ground floor of the Tavistock Hotel. Retaining the hotel's original 1920's features with a modern and elegant twist, Woolf & Whistle takes its inspiration from the famous 20th century writer Virginia Woolf, who once lived and worked in the neighbourhood. Providing a welcoming haven to our guests, locals and visitors to the area; our pub serves classic cocktails alongside traditional pub favourites in a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. After all, a wise woman once wrote, ‘’One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.’’ The Tavistock is perfectly located for the health club and American style bowling alley as well as the exciting sites of the capital. ... more   less
