The hotel is set back a little from the road. It is about 5 minutes walk from London Paddington station and is ideally situated if, like me, you have had a long journey on the train and just want to find your hotel. The feel of the hotel is more like a large B & B or private hotel than... More

Stayed here the other night and was impressed by the location and service however be careful about some of the rooms they are tiny. I'm fairly large chap 6'3" etc however I had to turn sideways to get through the doorway to the bed (bed completely walled in!)... If you are all all clostrafobic then beware! It was in theory...

Great hotel, great service and a perfect location!! Near Hyde Park, near Oxford street. Only a 15 min walk to Oxford street. Very nice people behind the desk. You can park your car in front of the hotel. (20Pounds per night)

I would like to commend the staff at this hotel. My friend and I recently stayed here and found it to be very welcoming, efficient, clean and comfortable. We actually stayed twice, at the beginning and end of our UK visit. We had single rooms for three nights, and shared a double room for two nights. The rooms are small... More

I chose to stay in this hotel because it was close to the hotel my friends were staying in and it was the best value I could find in the area. London hotels always leave a bit to be desired unless you want to pay a fortune, but for the price I was very happy here. The internet was the... More

We had 8 nights at the Premier in Paddington - the price was moderate which often means in London you get a shoebox that you have to stand on the bed to close the door. Not so with this hotel. We had a Club Room on the first floor - the bathroom was tiny but the design somehow worked. All... More

Like others (it would seem from previous comments) I was re-directed to this hotel due to "essential maintenance work" at another Shaftesbury hotel. It's very close to both Paddington and Lancaster Gate tube stations and relatively set back from traffic noise. First impression was "OK". Then I was ushered into room 820 (Basement room). Small doesn't cover it, and quite... More

This is a nice hotel tucked a half-block away from Paddington (Circle/District Tube end). Located among apartments in the ubiquitous row houses, it has been refurbished. My single room reminded me of an upscale ship's cabin. Caution: These are European not US-sized rooms, and don't expect to find wash cloths or hair dryers either, which is typical of European-based hotels.... More

As a member of the Premier Rewards I enjoy very useful discounted rates and a choice of Shaftesbury Premier Hotel locations depending on where my meetings take place. Westbourne Terrace was ideal for me as I arrived by train at Paddington main line station and the hotel is a very short walk in a not too busy part of west... More
