“Worst place ive ever stayed in! £75 to park a van!!!!”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

From the pictures and the first Impression this place looks fantastic but all the money and attention is on luring people in on false pretenses because the rooms are awful and outdated! The beds were less comfy than a park bench and overall service was terrible! We were working local so could walk to work so was planning on leaving our work van at the hotel as was shown it had onsite parking but at £75 a night the room was not worth that let alone parking. I would not advise my worst enemy to stay here! Other than that the location Is excellent just a shame this place is here to ruin people's stay!

My wife and recently stayed three nights in this hotel. We booked before reading TripAdvisor reviews so were in some trepidation when we did seeing the negative comments re room size. We needn't have worried. Yes the rooms are not large by any means but they are fit for purpose, clean and functional. Perhaps those who found their rooms too small couldn't see that the location (less than 5 minutes with heavy cases from Paddington Station) and so close to Hyde Park (a 5 minute stroll) and the top end of town i.e. Marble Arch easily outweighs this minor glitch. The price too should be considered, we paid £84 per night for a double on the third floor and had seen similar rooms nearby for much more than that. The staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and approachable, nothing was too much trouble and all done with a genuine smile and grace. Balance the cost and location against the room size and it's a winner in my book.

Room Tip: a room at the rear of the hotel might have less traffic noise

My husband and I stayed there in the 3rd week of May, 2011. The hotel was nice from the outside and even the lobby was beautiful.....we are not picky travelers at all....as long as the room is clean and staff personable....usually all is well......the room was very cramped (typical Eurupeon style, I guess)......our room faced a court yard that contained garbage cans and the smoking staff.....the room had no air conditioning and was extremely hot at night and we had to sleep with the window open (with no screen)...and the first 3 nights we were there we were woke up at 3am to screaming and fighting coming from a room above us on the same 'window shaft" we were facing....we politely asked the 2nd night of screaming to please be quiet....to no avail....so we called the desk and nothing was done about it....the 3rd night was the same with more drunken screaming and another complaint to the desk at 3am.....the next morning we asked to move rooms and we were told the offending party was checking out that day.....so the management did nothing about the annoying guests....they just left on their own. It is an older hotel and looks very worn away from the desk area, internet in mediocre at best and very intemittant WIFI. The staff was nice to a point, but goodness don't forget you key in your room....you would have thought we were asking for the "Crown Jewels" just to borrow a key to get back into our room. The bathroom was very very small....more like a closet.....the bed was very very hard....carpet was worn and dirty.....the breakfast was the exact same breakfast each morning.....the local neighborhood was nice, near lots of restaurants and pubs, Paddington Station was just a block away and on a great bus route and within walking didstance of Hype Park and Buckingham Palace. I personally would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Thank you for your comments. We are proud of our customer service, although there are times when it is difficult with guests who do no co-operate and this matter was dealt with by the staff.

We are located in listed buildings (dated to the 1830s) and a few of our rooms are small but adequate for purpose. We also have one and two bedroom suites lounge and kitchen areas and en suite bathrooms. Please enquire about the availability of this accommodation on your next visit. Many hotels charge for breakfast, our buffet breakfast including cold and hot items is complementary to our guests.

The room was small also small was the beds.A tall man will feel uncorfotable.The bed near the window was cold because the air from outside could enter the spaces of the old window and one night the central heating not working!And now the good points: The staff was very polite.The location of the hotel is near Paddington underground station

Stayed here in November for 3 nights with my husband for a Christmas shopping trip and sightseeing. Ideal location just a minutes walk from Paddington station. Some lovely pubs with sky sports and restaurants nearby to chill out in after a hard days shopping. Only bad thing I would say is the room had the lowest and smallest double bed I have ever slept in but was ok. We never had the breakfast, we perfered to have brunch out sk cannot comment but the reception area is magnificent

I visited this hotel earlier this week for a 2 night stay and was delighted with the hotel. Although the 'double bed' was tiny our room had a shower room and tea/coffee making facilities as well as a hair drier and TV. The complimentary breakfast was also more than I expected - a buffet offered scrambled eggs, sausages & baked beans, toast and marmalade and excellent coffee. We were able to park our car directly outside the front entrance in a gated secure area for a daily fee of £15. The nearby tube station (Lancaster gate) allowed us easy access into the West End. I would recommend this hotel and would gladly stay here again.

Stayed here for two nights, room small but spotlessly clean. Staff and Manager very friendly. Problem with the water from shower getting on to floor of bathroom, but a couple of towels soon did the trick. Breakfast was fine. Scrambled egg, sausage and beans. Toast, cheese, ham and jams. Staff will bring your tea or coffee to the table. Would definately stay here again and would reccommend it to anyone. Just around the corner from Paddington train and underground station. Hyde park a five minute walk away.
