“Pleasantly surprised :)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Booked this hotel as it was centrally located and reasonably priced through another website.

I needn't have worried at all, yes it's a cheap hotel situated on a busy road with Paddington station and St Mary's hospital but transport links to London are fab and some of the sights of London including Norfolk Park are within walking distance.
The hotel itself is undergoing refurbishment, but our room, Quadruple room, was clean and comfortable, beds had new mattresses, bathroom was new and spotless and the beds were made and towels changed every day. All in all a great place to stay whilst spending a few days sightseeing. The staff were friendly and we had no problems at all

Having booked the hotel through another site I was really concerned to read the reviews here about The Ascot, sadly too late to cancel without losing our money. However as we expected it to be dreadful it wasn't a shock! They are refurbishing so the stairwells are filthy and often difficult to negotiate with all the tools and cables lying around. (H&S???) Our room was ok, the bathroom looked new although ceiling unfinished and door tatty, the beds (new?) and bedsheets were clean, although we didn't use the pillows or duvets as they were not! Nor did we use the tea/coffee making facilities as I was unconvinced that they were clean. I had expected the staff to be rude and they were not. The self service breakfast was basic but adequate. Had I read the reviews before booking I would not have booked, the reviews did prepare us for a dreadful experience which was not as dreadful as we expected and we spent a couple of nights using this as an adequate base to sleep.

Having read alot of reviews on here about The Ascot we were a little concerned about what we were going to get when we arrived. When we did arrive it was exactly what we thought, a small budget hotel in London. Ok so it was basic and admittedly it was dusty on the stairs (because of the builders). However our room was fine, the staff were fine and our nights sleep overall was fine apart from the ambulances now and again, which again were to be expected as we were right next to the hospital. I think to many people on here expect to much for not alot of money and if you want top notch you have to pay for it, simple.

It like a building site. Had to climb over tool boxes and drills to get to room. Staff uninterested and rude. Had to open window with a screw as it had no handle. Paint over floor and hair in a pile in the corner of bathroom. Kettle in room dirty inside. Hairdryer was broken.

By far the worst hotel Ive ever stayed in!
On arrival found someone elses suitcases in our room! once this was sorted the view from the window was of a rusty old fire escape!
Electrical sockets hanging off the wall and exposed cable on the iron they supplied made for a shocking experience!

Rude reception staff, our room looked like it was part way through a cheap redecoration and the staff hadn't even bothered to clean up after the builders- dusty floors, furniture bathroom etc and a strong smell of paint, building work going on outside the room all day which we hadn't been warned of- climbing over wood and tools in the corridor and masses of graffiti in the lift- wouldn't put my dog in here! Was more like a low end east European hostel than a hotel in the capital

This hotel is not worth staying at. Cheap and not clean. In a nice part of London but not the best hotel for money in the area. Staff were nice. Pretty close walking distance to central shopping areas and Hyde park.
