                The hotel is in a great location. We were happy with the clean room and good service. The staff was friendly and helpful.

                Convenient central location.

                In need of refurbishment. The interior seems a little tired. The bar area is not particularly atmospheric. Bedroom cramped and bathroom more so. We had booked a "Superior" room which was described as having more space than a "Classic" room. The bathroom was described as also having more space and a "walk in" shower. On arrival we were told that a "classic" room had been reserved for us although our booking confirmation clearly stated a "Superior" room. After waiting a little while we were told that a "Superior" room was available for us. Strangely, it did not appear to have have any of the advertised "Superior" room facilites. The bedroom had limited space, very small bathroom (no walk in shower), no dressing gowns, cd player etc etc.

                Good location, efficient communication and very helpful in providing baby cot in the room

                the breakfast facilities are woefully inadequate. At 9.15am there was a 25 minute queue to be seated in the breakfast area.

                We have stayed at the Cavendish previously and value for money and location meant we were happy to go back. However our room on our second visit was not as good as previous room. The breakfasts are excellent. Wifi was only available on a 24 hour basis in the lobby with passwords changed daily.

                We booked two rooms and the Hotel had no record of the second room being booked, we had to produce the booking confirmation sheet on both check in and again on check out to prove that we had booked and paid for two rooms.

                Very handy and within walking distance to lots of attractions. Very clean and quiet with excellent staff who were very helpful, courteous and friendly at all times. Our room had adjustable air conditioning which was very convenient also. I would definitely stay there agan and will be recommending it to my friends and colleagues.

                There was nothing about this hotel I did not like.

                The location is excellent for business it is so close to central Londan that it makes getting around a breeze

                The rooms are so small you would not be able to mange 10 days with 2 people without causing injury to each other

                Excellent staff service. Excellent central London location. Checking in & out very quick.

                Room & en-suite small but satisfactory for short stay in middle of London.

                The upper bar was open 24hrs. every day where I could get drinks and food.

                They could not find my reservation when I arrived at the hotel, thus I had to wait till they looked at their email. Once they found it everything was fine.

                My wife and I found the Cavendish to be very friendly, comfortable and convenient for the west end shows. We have stayed at the hotel a number of times and have always been very satisfied. My only criticism would be of the room we were allocated, no. 819, which was next to the lifts and was quite noisy. I shall remember to avoid that situation should we return sometime in the future.

                I have stayed more than once and now I got the smallest room up to date, it was a bit disappontment since this is an expensive hotel.
