Stayed for just one night before flying back to Calgary. Hotel staff were excellent, we ate in the Island restaurant, great bottle of wine with awesome food, great place to eat. Clean and very comfortable, excellent views of the city.
Great location, very close to Bayswater tube. Reception staff friendly. Room was very noisy though.. could hear upstairs guests stomping around and every time they used the bathroom. Other than that, for convenience and cost, this hotel suited our needs
The hotel was a lovely surprise and an affordable little splurge for my sister and myself. We both needed the peace and quiet after the hectic work lives we both lead. Would love to go back there again! 10 thumbs up if we had that many thumbs between the both of us.
The hotel itself is pretty nice, but for every little thing that is standard at most hotels of this class (wifi and storing your bags until you need to go to the airport for an evening flight) is extra. The little tea set in the room is not replenished so when you run out of milk or tea bags, you're on your own. I know these are small things but it just seems churlish. The breakfast buffet is quite good.
This hotel is one that I frequently use if available. I really like the staff and the location. They seem to "understand" it is key to make people feel good about the brand and do small things to prove it. Some free water bottles, cookies, and news journal. Wifi is free as "expected" in this age....
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.
