Location Location excellent. The bed linen was clean.... This is the only good thing I could say about the b&b. The place stank of curry and spices and was very off putting. The room was tiny and very run down as was the whole of the b&b. I could sit on the loo, brush my teeth and take a shower... More

Hosts very friendly and helpful. Hotel itself is a little rundown and very dated. The bedroom window was open with bars on so it would have been difficult to close it. Luckily, it was a very warm night so the breeze was a blessing. Breakfast was included in the price this was not even a full continental.so was a bit... More

The welcome couldn't have been friendlier, the owners are genuinely interested in their guests and can't do enough to help. Our triple room was small, but quite adequate and clean. For the location and the welcome you'll not find better value in central London.

As in previous reviews, i agree the location is excellent. With easy access to the train station and several great restaurants. The owners are kind folks and were very helpful. However, with several chains now coming into the Sussex Gardens area, it would benefit them to improve the conditions of their rooms. I can handle a small room; what i... More

If a customer is not happy with anything the customer should inform the management to let them explain and fix the matter like changing a towel, set of linen , pillow or even a room if available. The customer can even check out and... More

This is a very nice family-driven hotel with a great location. Small and cozy with nice and clean rooms. The owners used to live in Norway, so they speak Norwegian. Try out their Burmesian restaurant (Mandalay restaurant) with the best samosas in the world!

My friend and I stayed in a twin room for three nights. The room was incredibly small, but we were only there to sleep- so we didn't mind at all. Dwight and his family were SO friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was small but very nice. If I ever return to London, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here.

Mandalay Picton B&B, London When I started researching accommodation in London, our requirements started with - it must be within walking distance of a transport hub and walking distance to the central London icons. Equally important, we wanted a budget price, quiet and reasonably appointed room and of course, cleanliness. Well the Mandalay Picton B&B was absolutely perfect. A 15... More

the owner is very friendly and chatty and gives you a warm welcome, although the other woman at reception was extremely cold and did not reply to questions, which made me a bit uncomfortable. the room is just awful: really small, smelly and outdated, no duvet, just a blanket which had clearly not been washed in a while, with suspicious...

The perfect location for a weekend with friends in London. The Sussex Garden area feels safe and the hotel is very close to Paddington station (2 minute walk) which makes it easy to get around. Oxford Street is also in walking distance from the hotel (10-15 minutes). The rooms are clean and the prices are very affordable. This is a... More
