I travelled with a friend and we booked a twin room for our four night stay. We arrived at the hotel around 10pm, to which they must have overbooked their hotel because we were given a double bedroom with an unpleasant bathroom, overlooking shabby rooftops and (noisy) air vents, and every 5 minutes the whole room would shake due to...

I am very glad I chose this place. I was leery based on some reviews on here, but I emailed Alex and he assured me that I would have a great stay, and I did. The lovely Sophie at reception is a wonderful sight for sore eyes upon arrival. The breakfast is delicious and you can have all you want;... More

We did not last more than 5 minutes and left in a hurry - smelly, pokey, run-down! - Very close to Paddington train station, trains to Oxford leave from there. But there is a number of small hotels in the area and we had no trouble finding something better. Remember - this is London - you pay a premium.

Lasted two hours, then fled at 1130pm. Smelly, pokey, impoverished, very very noisy with gangs of youths drink and drug fuelled outside my window. Quite frightening. Recommended by our surgeons' secretary as being near the hospital for visits. All that immaterial. Do yourself a favour, just don't do it.

I spent two days at St. David's this week while visiting England for medical attention. The staff, especially the young lady at reception, could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. The location is excellent, the neighbourhood is safe and friendly, and the hotel itself is spotless and beautifully quaint. Many thanks to the kitchen staff for a lovely breakfast.... More

Found myself stranded overnight yesterday, and needed to stay near Paddington. Walked around a bit in the area and found this gem of a property in Norfolk Square. Lovely room, small but comfortable, excellent bed, and good shower. Brilliant full English breakfast this morning, served by friendly ladies in the basement. Friendly staff at reception. Overall, I was delighted with... More

I stayed at this hotel in september for 10 days at short notice while my mum was recovering from life saving surgery in a nearby hospital. The staff were so kind during my stay, always asking how she was doing and letting me book one day at a time as I didnt know how long I needed to stay. The... More

We arrived at St David's around 8.30am after an early flight into London, and it was great to find our room ready. While we ate a complimentary breakfast our bags were taken to our room. This was the level of service we received throughout our 4 day stay - help with finding services, great recommendations for places to eat and... More

We chose St David's Hotels as one of the few affordable hotels for an overnight stay in west London. The location just across the street from Paddington station is exceptionally convenient, as was the 24-hour reception desk. There is no online booking, but the phone was answered straight away and our booking dealt with clearly and professionally. When we arrived,... More
