We were looking for a one-night stay near Paddington to break up a long journey, with a 9am train to catch the next day. We needed somewhere close to the station but quiet enough for a good night's sleep, with warm running water for the morning shower and preferably with somewhere to get a decent breakfast. Full marks for all of the above, added to which the staff were very pleasant and the beds very comfortable.
The bedroom was a good size (we booked 'best available double', and got a room with two double beds!), there was a flatscreen TV with a decent range of channels, free Wifi and an ironing board. The bathroom looked newly furnished, and the shower had fantastic temperature control. It was on the cramped side, with the shower door practically opening onto the toilet, but this wasn't a major issue.
We had paid for breakfast to be included and went down for it at 8.10 am, a bit anxious about getting to the train on time. We needn't have worried; a full buffet (English breakfast plus Continental) was ready and waiting, and tea was served to our table as we loaded our plates. Everything tasted fresh and we were done by 8.30am. Check-out was very efficient and it was a five-minute walk to the station.
We didn't stay long enough to try out the leisure facilities or the bar, so I'm not sure how it fares for an extended stay, but this will definitely be our go-to place for overnighting in London in the future.
