Compared to some other London hotels we stayed in, Crescent Hotel in Cartwright Gardens was quite good.
Our en suite double room was clean, towels new(ish) (not torn or frayed as in some other places), the mattress and pillows reasonably comfortable. The room and the bathroom were small, but not tiny. The bathroom did NOT remind us of plane toilets as did the ones in some other hotels. The furniture was adequate and there was even an (unused) fireplace!
They provided shampoo, shower gel and a small bar of soap for each person. There was coffee and several types of tea (including herbal) on the hospitality tray. This was all replenished as necessary.
There was a TV in the room with the usual terrestrial channels. When we first arrived, there was no remote in the room, but after we told them, they provided one immediately. No radio though. There was also a phone in the room, which was handy for calling the reception instead of going down and climbing all the way back up. You could also receive messages on the room phone, but we just used the mobile, so can't say how efficient that was.
We were on the top floor (note that there is no lift), facing the back rather than Cartwright Gardens. It was quiet in our room, but I don't know what it is like if you have a room facing the front.
There was a cosy little lounge with a computer and a couple of sofas /armchairs. They also provided a luggage room which we used to store our stuff between checking out and catching our train on the last day of our stay.
I didn't go down to breakfast at all, but according to my husband, the food was just passable, but the service all right.
There was a no smoking sign in our room, which suited us just fine.
