The Garth Hotel
Poor quality but clean.
Average at best
This hotel wasn't the worst I have stayed in.
My room was certainly clean but needing repair. The windows were my main issue - the window didn't close so it was both noisy (due to other people in the next door room talking loudly and also traffic noise) and cold. A heater was supplied but it was nonetheless drafty and fairly unpleasant for this reason. I was also disappointed to see that the shower was literally in the same room as the bed and located right next to the wardrobe (which had slats) so all condensation from having a shower goes directly into your clothes. Less than ideal and not what I'd expect for the price paid.
Cheap and clean
You get what you pay for at the Garth.
The rooms are clean, staff were nice and friendly and the location is very central. It's certainly not luxury and yes, my room did not have a toilet, but at the same time it was very convenient and cheap for central London. Breakfast was also very nice.
Very basic. No frills stay.
Hotel was basic.
You pay for what you get.
Better than expected!
Customer service/accommodation cleanliness did not score higher because the sheets smelt body odour and I had to ask for them to be changed, but no offer to change the sheets I had to change them myself.
The Garth Hotel
This is not a complaint but may help the hotel to improve: The room was not particularly clean.
The door closed with difficulty and the (automatic) door-closer was broken. The shower head support was broken.
The staff were pleasant and helpful.
My experience with The Garth Hotel London
My overall experience at this hotel left no pleasant memories.
The room was dingy, small and tardy. There was a shower in my room with a wash basin and to use the toilet I had to walk past reception in the outer room which was not pleasant at all. It leaves little to the imagination. I would suggest a Travel Lodge instead. It was a very traumatic experience for me.
I needed to find a bed and breakfast near Kings Cross/Euston for a business meeting, the Garth Hotel was ideally located, about 10 - 15 minutes walk from Kings Cross.
I had a single on suite, which was small but perfectly satisfactory. The staff in duty were friendly and helpful. The cooked breakfast in the morning was very nice.
Short city break
Stayed for one night on a city break.
Staff all pleasant, single bed very narrow but both rooms clean & comfy - and the breakfast was very good. Perfectly adequate for a short stay - would use again.
Decent central accommodation
Small but adequate room, quiet because at the back, with good shower, free wifi, TV, and comfortable bed with clean sheets, &c.
Also a very decent full breakfast included.
