Fairview November 2019.
Would stay here again, but would request a lower floor as i struggle getting upstairs. Friendly and courteous staff.

Convenient but basic and cramped
Four bed room basic and small, a bit tatty but clean, shower room really tiny. Basic breakfast Convenient as we needed to stay to support a relative's operation in hospital, to which we could walk. Also v close to Kings Cross. Would have liked a resident's lounge

A bit disappointing breakfast. A very small breakfast room where you may have to wait for a long time to get seated. It's not bad but I would rather go with a room without breakfast and have the breakfast in a cafe nearby.

Not all staff speak proper English, which means that I could not communicate with some of the staff. The room is very small, the bed takes up all space in the room.
Kin Fung Martin, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
The hotel was adequate and matched its star rating. It was clean with a comfortable bed and decent shower. There was secondary glazing but the main window wouldn’t close which meant I was woken at 1.30am by a very noisy crowd nearby. There is no lift so not very accessible. Breakfast choices were limited but the staff were It is very convenient for King’s Cross station.

Great value - I'd stay again.
Handy for transport, clean and presentable. Not luxury but had everything I needed including a fan (room are hot), kettle, hairdryer etc. Comfy bed and very pleasant receptionist, who was great when I let them know I would be a very late check in, offering to stay later than his shift if I didn't make it time - luckily it wasn't necessary but was great to know the option was there.

Perfect for a day trip to London!
Comfortable beds, a nice breakfast and friendly staff. No issues with my stay and a great price to go with it. Overall I enjoyed my stay.
Peter, gb1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
While our overall view of this B and B was good I would start with a reservation. Yvonne and I are in our mid-70s so we did find the room and the shower room small. We did stay 5 nights and would be happy to go there again. While the room was small it was beautifully warm and the bed comfortable. It was no problem to rise for breakfast and to use the shower. The Full English was a good start to the day so that one could wait until the evening for a full meal and have a snack at lunch time. I cannot speak highly enough of the service provided and the disposition of the young girls working there and the management was pleasant and helpful at all times. The location of the .Fairway is very good. Within 10 minutes walk are the British Museum and Bloomsbury while the British Library and the Wellcome Museum are a mere 5 minutes away. Opposite Argyll Street is the magnificent St Pancras Station, well worth looking at inside as well as out. The John Betjeman Pub and Restaurant are worth a visit for craft ales, food and the decor. Eating nearby is reasonable by London terms at O'Neill's Irish Pub and Prezzo Pizza House. Many buses run from outside St Pancras Station while the tube has excellent links from the same place. St Pancras and King's cross are adjacent while Euston is only 5 minutes walk away. For a central London stay the Fairway is simple but welcoming and excellent value for money Richard and Yvonne

Value for money
Stairway narrow with narrow steps. Room very small but bed was comfortable and room clean. Only one bath towel no hand towel and a paper bath mat. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
