We have been to Lindon a number of times (usually twice a year) and stay at the smaller hotels in and around Marble Arch, thus hotel is closer to Paddington though, the room was right in the ground floor, small as you would expect but the room was clean and the bed very comfortable!! Breakfast was included and was excellent... More

This is a small, nice and clean hotel. The rooms were cold when we stayed there in February. Good breakfast. Excellent location, just a few minutes´walk to the underground. Good price. I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again.

A small, charming hotel very conveniently located near Paddington Station. The staff were very friendly and amiable, welcoming. The hotel was very clean and they are currently upgrading their rooms. The rooms were comfortable (the bed not too so), a little on the small side, but not too cramped. Wifi is only available in reception. Price was good for what... More

This is in my opinion a first rate hotel offering not only a comfortable bed but a more than adequate breakfast; even a takeaway breakfast if you need an earlier start than 7.00 am. I have stayed at the Gower now for many years and will continue to stay there on my many visits to London in the future Not... More

The only positive thing is the location in the centre For the rest I can't recommend this hotel. There are BED BUGS in the room - I got bites on my back!!! This is unacceptable! The room was very small and I thought the breakfast was very basic.

Clean room, bathroom was all new and beautifully clean. Breakfast was fine, nothing special but plenty of it if you wanted yogurts and cereal. Bed was comfortable. Tiny room, but all I wanted to do was sleep. I booked very last minute and it was half term week!! Staff very friendly and helpful, Able to leave bags for the day... More

What do you expect for £100 a night in London? Clean room, warm, lumpy bed crushed into one corner one - very small bedroom and shower room. Though breakfast is included I wouldn't bother. The food is actually very nice, except for the fact it's served with white bread or nothing. The problem for me was that it's served in... More

Good stay for a few days London. Don't expect too much. Expect clean rooms, bit of a noisy Hotel with a simple breakfast. The price you pay insnt too high either so it is fair. Good place to stay near Hide Park and Oxfort street (walking distance). I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I don't... More

You got what you payed for. The hotel was alright, the rooms okay and they were clean and the breakfast was fine. The location isn't ideal if you're looking for shopping but is located really close to paddington station, 2 minutes walking distance. This hotel is a good place to stay at if you're just planning on staying a few... More
