The Cavendish London
Excellent choice!
We chose the Cavendish for our overnight stay because of locality and we weren’t disappointed regarding shopping, restaurants, etc. The welcome at Reception was the start of an excellent stay at the Cavendish and we all agreed that we would certainly stay at the hotel again. Thoroughly recommend!

The Cavendish London
Central location, excellent service
We were staying in town for my husband's birthday party and wanted somewhere central to leave bags and crash. The Cavendish was above and beyond what we'd expected. Very friendly, helpful staff – they allowed us to check in early and even left a card and bottle of wine in the room for my husband. The room was small but perfect for our needs and had everything you could ask for, incl tea and coffee making, water, a decent iron and hairdryer and, very handily, an umbrella to borrow as it was teaming down outside. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room as it was a stopover rather than a hotel break, but it was more than adequate. Late checkout of 1pm on the Sunday was appreciated too and breakfast was good. I would highly recommend this as a convenient and good-quality London hotel.
