I called up the hotel to book and enquire. The rude, awful man who answered the phone convinced me to not set foot in such a place!!! He spoke rudely and then banged the phone on me while i was talking! If the manager happens to read this, get rid of such staff in your hotel!

This was my second stay at the Castleton Hotel, which I like very much. It's an inexpensive hotel which is very handy for Paddington Station. The accommodation is comfortable and clean, with good shower and ensuite facilities. The cooked breakfasts are excellent, and the staff in every area are friendly and efficient.

I was travelling with my two sons. Our room had three beds which took up 95% of the floor space. Paint was chipped off the walls and the carpet was worn down to the thread. The room was extremely run down with no place to put luggage or clothing. The bathroom was tiny. The overall hotel is run down and... More

The location is good. Staff are friendly and professional. However the rooms and facility are very old and small : not for big size people :-) specially the capsule ( bathroom ) . I see it overpriced for what you got in exchange.

I had a one night stay at the Castleton prior to an early train. Other reviewers quite rightly point out that the rooms are small - my single room barely had any floor space remaining once my suitcase was laid down and opened up! The bathroom is pod-style - I found it small and I am not tall nor overweight!... More

We travelled with three persons and got a room with three separate beds. Room and storage possibilities were small. Bathroom was pretty new and nice. Room and facilities were clean. Breakfast was 'boring' with decided to have the third one in a restaurant nearby.

This hotel is right near Paddington station which was why we booked it. Rooms were a decent size, with a pod bathroom standard in many London hotels. Full cooked English breakfast was mediocre but better than going out and finding someplace near Paddington. Television signal was spotty the whole time so the tele didn't work. Two of the lights in... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night with 7 friends. It wasn't what I expected after reading the reviews, I thought the standard would be higher. The rooms are small and shabby and painted brown, the bathroom is extremely tiny, smaller than a caravans, the sink smelt like a pond, it was disgusting, the shower curtain came off its... More

This hotel is perfectly adequate for a one night stay. We had a good laugh as my husband is 6'5" and the room was 'compact', to say the least. That said, it's clean and tidy and has everything you need. Breakfast was good and set us up for the day. The time slot was fine for us as we had... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night, it was very clean, comfortable and great value for money. The location was ideal as only minutes from the tube and bus stops. The hotel staff were very accommodating and able to answer any query we had regarding areas to visit. The breakfast was a brilliant way to start your day and... More
