We have stayed in some really bad hotels of this type around Kings X and Paddington, and were pleasantly surprised by the Fairway. The location for Kings X and St Pancras was amazing, the bed was very comfortable, and, although the building was old with wonky steps, it was clean and well cared for. We are likely to stay here again, but do have a few complaints, which are why we didn't give it 5/5:
- the single use bath mats are wasteful, and who wants to put their wet feet on a piece of paper when they step out of the shower?!
- we were in room 12, and the wifi didn't seem to reach that far. We asked the guy at reception if there was anything he could do, like restart the router, and he said that the wifi was working fine on his phone at reception and therefore it must be working throughout the building including in all the room. First of all that logic is not true, and the delivery was very rude.
