My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the hotel two days ago. We booked on the Internet and choose it because it was reasonably priced. (£68 for double room with a Continental breakfast per night but on arrival there was a £4 charge for using my credit card).
Unfortunately we only looked at the reviews after booking and dreaded what we might encounter.
On arrival at 3pm we were told we were in the basement 'as you are the last to check in' !.
(An alternative room was offered in their nearby hotel) We looked at the basement room which had 2 double beds and a single. The room and bedding was clean as was the tiny en-suite which contained a toilet, Shower and the smallest hand basin possible (about 6" x 2.5") We decided to accept the room for two nights. There was no extra charge for the 'up-graded' room. There was a Flat screen multi channel TV on the wall. Other than a two foot square open fronted wardrobe, two bedside cabinets and 2 chairs there was nowhere to put any clothing - we used the other beds. There were 4 rooms below ground level 1 - 4 We were in Room 1 at the front of the hotel which unfortunately was under the Reception which had a very creaky floor without soundproofing. There was a large window that you could not open.
The stairs to the rooms are steep and narrow and difficult with cases.
We only had breakfast on the second morning as we had to be at the Palace for the Jubilee celebrations early in the morning on day one.
Breakfast is taken behind the reception in a room which had a surrounding work surface where one sat on bar stools facing the wall - no tables. There was a choice of tea/coffee, orange, cereals and toast with jam and butter.- all self service. It was an exaggeration to call it a Continental. Breakfast. There was room for about 10 people, so if the 18 rooms were full some would not have been able to eat in the allotted time (8am - 9.30).
On the last day we were allowed to leave our luggage for a charge of £2 per item which was useful.
The staff at the hotel were friendly and sociable and seemed anxious to please within their limitations. Their English was reasonable.
The hotel is situated on a busy road with a bus stop outside with the No 24 bus passing every 10 minutes to the heart of London. Taxis also frequently passed by. There are lots of places to eat in the close vicinity. It is close to both Victoria Main Line & Underground stations as well as Victoria Coach Station.
There are many other hotels in Belgrave Road which must have a higher standard of accommodation than the Park. It may be wiser to pay the extra for greater comfort and satisfaction.
According to other reviews we seemed luckier than most but would not recommend the Park Hotel.
