Set slightly away from the West End, this hotel is nevertheless in easy striking distance from all the main attractions. Situated on a pleasant and quiet street the hotel is compact but well designed. This is also reflected in the rooms which are well equipped and pleasant. Only slight grumbles were a tiny (by today's standards) TV and a slightly pricy (but good quality) breakfast.
For a Continental breakfast, this had everything you could reasonably expect. Plenty to eat and good variety. In the few days we were there the dining room was never full. The biggest disappointment was in the size of the room. It was classed as small, but if you opened your suitcase on the floor, you were not able to open the door. If all you need is abed, then this hotel is to be recommended.
"Nice hotel, close to the Paddington tube station. "
I stayed 7 nights in the hotel. Rooms are small but airy, natural lighting and hotel is on a quiet zone. Room has air conditioning (for summer) and heating for winter. A tea and coffee maker and free Wi-Fi. Small gestures like a bite of cookies every day in the room are a welcome addition.
Enjoyed the stay basically.......................... staff were extremely helpful ...offered advice for touring etc.
The lounge was not as available as we would have liked.........the bellmen were very helpful............even to the point of serving at the lounge. . The air conditioning in the room automatically turned down during the night.............hence hot through the early hours of he night.
I stay at this hotel a lot but this time the room was too hot, the sun seems to shine directly into the room. The hotel are aware of this as they provide a fan. We had a newly refurbished room and it is very well appointed.
Staff - as always - attentive and polite
Quick in was quick and efficient. Room's are fairly basic but lets be honest for a weekend away you're only using it to sleep in! We found it to be very quiet and in a nice quiet area situated less than 5 minutes walk from the Tube at Paddington
This lively residential and business area borders Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens where you can stroll along canalside streets and check out the houseboats and historic Victorian homes. Plentiful shopping opportunities exist at Queensway and Oxford Street. Paddington Station, a 19th century building, provides a gateway to towns in the west of England, including Oxford, Windsor, Bath and Bristol.
