Given London prices, this was probably average - but to be honest, having stayed in another almost identical budget hotel nearby in June this year (Balmoral) it was not what I would regard as acceptable. Very tired hotel, torn wallpaper, old decor. Friendly helpful staff though. My son and I were put on the top (5th) floor - a lot... More

For Central London basic and bit tired and dated with an early 70s feel but value given rates charged. Be aware no lift and I was on 4th floor with 82 steps to my room up narrow twisting stairs. Ok for one night arrive sleep go, nothing else. Staff friendly and helpful and location great for west central London access.

The hotel was an easy walk from Lancaster Gate and almost as close to Paddington. Reception was VERY friendly and helpful, especially as I don't have a mobile phone (no phone or clock in the room - just a heads up) even offering to knock on my door for a wake up call! Shower was lovely and hot, and the... More

With great trepidation we went ahead with our booking at the Lancaster Court after reading the reviews. The areas of the hotel that I saw could have done with a makeover , however we were found a free up grade to ensuite facilities on check in by a pleasant and helpful receptionist. Our bed was clean and comfy ,tea and... More

We stayed one night on the 6th September as we were going to Piccaddily Theatre for a show. We had not been told that building work was going on inside the hotel. No lift and we were on the 5th floor. I had white marks all over my black jacket from the walls as we came down the stairs. I... More

Turned up and the place is being redecorated which we did not know, dust everywhere and this got on our clothes as we were going out for the day. The room looked like it was still in mid decoration, it was very small and the en-suite was so small you couldnt really close the door while on the loo. The... More

I stayed here because it was close to Paddington, but I was really disappointed with it. They nickel and dime you, there's no wifi and they charge a pound for use of their desktop computer which is directly in front of reception (no privacy!) My room smelled quite bad, and I went with the shared bathroom since I was only... More

An old hotel with some minor defects. Overall a quiet and comfortable hotel on a very good location next to Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Lots of restaurants nearby as well as Paddington station. Good beds and a good hot shower. Breakfast until 9.30 with juice, toast, eggs, cereal and good strong coffee. Nice and helpful staff, everything is really... More

I stayed at the Lancaster Court recently during an overnight stay in a London between flights. The Location is fantastic with Hyde Park on your doorstep and the many places to eat and drink around Paddington station, just around the corner. My room had private shower and sink, the shower was very small but just adequate for me. The shared... More
