How misconceptions can one hotel print on one website? Well the Fairway is certainly trying for the record. Let’s start with these:

• Affordable, cheap, budget

• This cosy family-run hotel

• The Fairway Hotel offers most amenities that one would expect from a larger hotel

• Selective reviews posted using the word ‘Quiet’

• Value for Money

I wanted a cheap and quiet hotel. At over $150 a night you would expect that the non-air-conditioned rooms would not be welded OPEN so you hear the nearby Ambulance and Fire Stations and their sirens – all night. And the rooms are still hot. And small. And amenities? What amenities? A flush toilet and a sliver of soap?

Like so many B&B’s and small hotels in London, this is a building carved up into little, hot and noisy rooms and run by what seemed to be all Romanians. I never saw one the owners a “family from Malta for over fifty years”. Nope. Also like so many places their prices go ballistic during the warm months. Just to take advantage of us travellers.

OK – "Full English Breakfast”. Arrived completely cold at my table and concerned me greatly.

So tiny room, bathroom with nothing really and a bed that was not that great. Sweated and was woken up all night. Glad I requested a “QUIET ROOM” weeks before. I was reassured again at the boiling hot reception. Then when I asked after hearing the room for 2 seconds, told they were fully booked. I would hate think what they think would be a noisy room? One inside an ambulance with its sirens wailing? Well my room was almost like that.

Budget my arse. There are cheaper and better hotels in London if you look. Just don’t look here.

Only plus – if you are a very heavy sleeper – it’s close to Kings Cross/ST Pancras. Like 2 minute walk.

Looks like they were saving their budget, not yours. The building and room looks pretty enough, but clearly looks can deceive!
