Due to missing my last train, I needed a room for the night near Paddington. I'm a frequent traveller, and thought I'd seen a lot of the tricks that lower standard hotels could try. I was wrong. I must have confused the name of this hotel with a similar sounding establishment. I negotiated the rate by phone for a "superior... More

Location is great, 1 min from train and tube station and placed around a nice garden. It was an old house and for that reason access to floors 3 and 4 are unacceptable (very tight and no lift). Our room was very small (like 50cm around the bed and the shower door blocked by the bed). Toilet was private but... More

I booked a room here on a last minute website. On arrival, they said that due to a 'technical problem' they didn't have a room for me. They offered to take me to their sister hotel in 'Kensington'. To cut a long story short, they were trying to fill up their horrible hotel in Earls Court, hardly Kensington. I spent... More

This has to be the most disgusting place we've ever seen as a so called 3 star hotel! The place was filthy from stairs (there is no lift) to room. Room was filthy and stank, it was supposed to have a desk, but it was so small there wasn't even anywhere to put a suitcase let alone a desk. Not... More

I was there with my friend. We stayed there for 3 nights. During our stay we had so many questions and requests and the receptionists did everything to make us contented. They were helpful. There wasn't a large selection of food for breakfast, but it was enough to stop being hungry. The room was quite small and the bathroom was... More

Rooms were cleaned everyday and housekeeping was up to the mark. everything was perfect for me given the location of the hotel is a minute's walk from Paddington Central... More

Stayed there for 45 days approx. Location wise it is perfect. Staff is helping and friendly. Fits in your budget and breakfast provided is very good. You get all the big small things in house. They also arrange for cabs and offer good advice on the places to visit and eating joints. It is less than 100 meters from the... More
