We chose this hotel because we had a train departure at 6 a.m. so needed to be close to the station which is 100 metres away. We were both very pleased with the choice. The staff are friendly and helpful which is always a good start. We stayed two nights.
The room was compact but extremely clean and well prepared, the bed was comfortable and well made, the tea and coffee was generous unlike the two sachets you receive in some large hotels. The TV worked, although when we are on a leisure break we don't spend any time in a hotel room watching TV, but it is useful for waking up with. My only SLIGHT reservation is that the bathroom was tiny but hey, do what you have to do and that's all that is necessary.
I am 61 and my wife is 56, we were on the top floor, furthest room away. Stairs are stairs, I would NOT let this put me off staying again, and we will stay again. Breakfast was good and served by happy courteous staff.
As a comparison on price last year I stayed at a large hotel across the main road (not the St Pancras) which cost £270 a night, no dinner, no breakfast, no TV unless you paid £14, no wifi unless you paid. The bed was 2 metres wide but so what and you could have held a dance in the bathroom but all I wanted was a nights sleep.
If you want a place to stay in an excellent location at a good price (remember this is London) then I recommend the Fairway. Few frills or fancies but clean, tidy, friendly and practical.
