The service at the hotel could not be faulted, as soon as we checked in we were well looked after.
When we said that we were worried about the noise from Cromwell Road, the receptionist put us in a room at the back of the hotel, which was very quiet, especially for Central London.
The room itself was small, not unusual for London, but comfortable. The open window provided excellent air conditioning!!
The restaurant staff advised us that the menu was competively priced compared with local choices. We checked the prices, found this to be true and went back to the hotel for an excellent meal.
Breakfast is expensive (like all hotel chains the world over), but there are good local alternatives near Gloucester Road tube station.
The position is very good. We wanted somewhere handy for Paddington and Wimbledon Southfields and the location was just what we wanted.
The big negative was the shower. Right from the start, my wfie had trouble getting it to work and on the final morning (we stayed fro 3 days), neither of us could initially get water from the shower or the bath taps.
Happily, we manged to jiggle something and we got water in the end, but not after a lot of concern about walking out with shampoo lather in our hair.
