I stayed at the William iv in October 2010 during the week and my review was glowing. I did voice concerns over the fact that it could be 'noisy' if you stayed over the weekend......
I stayed at William iv on Friday 10 December for one night, again this was for a trip to London as we were going to watch a TV show being filmed at BBC TV Centre.
This time we got put in the smallest room they had and still got charged £100. The room was small but adequate, clean, newly decorated all as when we stayed previously however, there was a party going on in the pub downstairs. We did not get notified of this when we booked or when we checked in.
We arrived back around 10:30pm it took ages to check in due to how busy the bar was. As per my previous review, there REALLY should be a seperate area for guests checking in to the rooms. We were kept awake until gone 2am by the 'party' going on, the music was thumping so loudly the bed may as well have been in the bar!
Such a shame as my previous stay was lovely, this has really put me off the place. I will certainly think twice for future visits to London about staying here.
A reduction in rates or at least a notification of how noisy it was going to be would have been curtious - I woke up feeling like I hadn't slept which then ruined my day in London!!
BEWARE when booking as I am not exaggerating about the noise in anyway at all!!
