    Ok for one night!

    I honestly wouldn't stay here if it was longer than one night. The room was ok but seriously the bathroom was not much better than a broom closet and that is really the only reason it gets 3 stars.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great and it was super close to Kings Cross & St Pancras but the bathroom really let the whole place down

    Historical Traveler Reviews Fairway Hotel London

    Great place, great value.


    We booked the Fairway Hotel, but actually ended up staying in the Yorkshire Palace hotel which is next door and owned by the same people. The room was small but spotlessly clean, all newly decorated and re-fitted. Bedding carpets curtains and towels all spotless. Breakfast was not huge but adequate. Served promptly efficiently and with a smile.

    The location of this hotel makes it ideal for travelling into the West End. Buy a day bus ticket for 3 and use it all to hop on and off the buses. Also you must visit O'Neill's Irish bar just around the corner, where you can buy a bottle of wine for 7/8.

    We paid 55 for the ensuite twin room and would stay there again without hesitation. One last point, we left our cases in the hotel on our last day as our train did not leave until 9.00pm. This saved us 11 as it is 5.50p per item at King's Cross.

    Location, location, location


    The Fairway served as my base of operations for a week's work at the British Library. Its close proximity to King's Cross (where one can get the Tube and other rail services) and to the aforementioned library made the hotel a good choice; what made it a great choice was the excellent service, cleanliness, and value for the money. Breakfasts were good, and staff friendly. Room size was indeed small but no great hindrance to me as a single traveler. A few times I was awakened by street noise and felt, at times, that the immediate vicinity was less than inspiring (construction, traffic, noise); yet it was a small price to pay for such ready access to vital parts of the city. Single travelers, or perhaps couples, who want a convenient location for a good price need not look further.

    Nice B&B in great location


    We stayed at the Fairway Hotel in Kings Cross a couple of weeks ago and found it to be a pleasant & wonderfully located B&B. Having stayed at B&Bs in England, I always look forward to their "English breakfasts" and the breakfast at the Fairway was lovely! The hotel is within minutes walk to Kings Cross station, from where you can access Covent Garden within 5-10 minutes on the tube. The rooms are small but clean & cosy with coffee & tea making facilities in the room. One let down was that a friend called and left a message, which I never received.

    I recommend the Fairway and would stay there again.

    Great wee gem!


    Great wee hidden gem in London, very easy access to the tube and railway station.

    Hotel was immaculate with very friendly staff.

    We had booked a twin room but were given a lovely family room with a great ensuite. Great value at 55 which includes breakfast.


    Great place


    I've stayed here in October in a twin en-suite room. It is very good value for money - I've tried places for same price and others twice more expensive and found this place to be so much better. It is very clean ( a rare thing in London hotels in this price range), very good location, very nice full english breakfast. I will stay here again and recomend it highly.

    Brilliant location and value for money


    We are just back from a weekend staying at this friendly little hotel. It is ideally located just across the road from kings cross station and underground so traveling round London and getting back wasted no time and caused no problems. The rooms aren't enormous but as a base for site seeing are plenty big enough(who goes to London to sit in their room anyway). It is spotlessly clean and the staff are helpfull and friendly. At 75.00 for a triple ensuite including breakfast this was a great value for money place to stay. A limited amount of food/drink is available through room service at astoundly cheap prices, ok there isn't a great selection but at these prices you can't complain. An all round excellent stay.

    Great value


    Great value for London. Good location just opposite Kings Cross Station. Very clean room with good facilities, great service. Room wasn't huge but what do you expect for 50 or less in London. Room was quiet though - double windows hence very little traffic noise.

    Quite ok


    The hotel is situated north of the city centre and everything can be reached very quick. The room we had was very small (as was the bathroom). If you book a double make sure you have a very good relationship, otherwise you might get a problem. The bed was very small as well, hardly possible for two people to sleep in there comfortably.

    Everything was very clean though.

    The breakfeast gets served until 9 am and I think it is not worth getting up for. Rather go and have a decent breakfeast somewhere else if you do not want to ruin your day.

    Given that any hotel in London is totally overpriced, the Fairway is recommended for small budgets - you get what you pay for.

    Charged my credit card without permission


    I booked this hotel with a credit card guarantee and cancelled 10 days before arrival. They charged my credit card for the first night anyway.

    They are refusing to return the funds. Stay Away!

I turned around and for a moment got the feeling of what it would be like to work on West End. Fun and terrifying. The show started and as usual it was fantastic. Ronan did a wonderful job, but for me...it will always be the fast food character. I'd always look in the shadows to find him. He just ...
