“OK for what we wanted”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

My daughter and I wanted somewhere to stay for a weekend of shopping, a show and museum trips.The room on the fourth floor was tiny but very clean, quiet and comfortable with a good view over the park. Think the bathroom had just been refurbished. The shower was too hot and impossible to set to cooler. Breakfast was basic, but perfectly adequate. It's convenient for Bayswater tube. So all in all, fine, if you don't have to spend too long in the hotel and just want somewhere comfortable to sleep.

We took over one night of a friend's booking over 2 nights as she could only use one. Staff agreed on us staying the second night instead of her and her boyfriend and agreed on changing sheets and towels for us. Room in the basement was small and not very friendly, but ok for one night. Electric devices were working, all ok. Bed looked ok and clean, so did the bathroom. Breakfast was ok, too. The staff is was not very welcoming and seemed bothered when asked questions, but still they were helpful in the end, gave us adapters for free and agreed to print our bus ticket for the next day.
All in all- alright for what we have paid (40 pounds), if we had payed the full price (80 pounds), I would have been very disappointed. So- don't expect much for your money!

Room Tip: don't choose rooms in the basement

A stay of two nights to enable us to go to Theatre was brilliant.
Hotel was very clean beds excellent, breakfast and plumbing was adequate for a short stay.
The staff were very very helpful. We booked with www. shortbreaktrip . Hotel was about three minute walk from Tube station, and within 5 mins of a small shopping mall and eating places.

Room Tip: We were given choice of rooms and it was certainly a quiet room, what we asked for.

We received a warm welcome on arrival. Room was good (twin room two beds), bathroom excellent.Breakfast was good (just watch the temperature of the food, especially the scrambled egg). All staff were helpful and friendly. Hotel situated in an ideal location to access most venues. All in all an excellent stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 55, ground floor, no problems whatsoever.

Stayed here through super break for the theatre. Have stayed in numerous hotels in London but never one of this standard . Hotel is shabby, poorly maintained and bathrooms are disgusting . Noisy due to poor insulation , beds like camp beds ! Toilet seats falling off. Everything done on the cheap , paper cups at breakfast ! Poor choice of food with broken down equipment , the toasting machine after producing slice after charred slice eventually set on fire ! Coffee machine only worked on one setting !! Staff were lovely but seemed demoralised and all in agreement about the poor conditions ! And DO not use their own ' taxi firm' ! Rip off as it's a polish or Romanian ? guy in his own car with no meter ! Charges 'fixed' prices for all trips way over black cab rates ! Who ever is the owner of this place read your reviews !!! Improvements required urgently

The Bayswater Inn Hotel is truely the grottiest hotel I have ever stayed in.
The reception staff were pleasant but even they gave us a clue that we would be unhappy with our rooms before we saw them & when we changed rooms, the new ones were little better.
Rooms were tiny with outdated, grimey decor & bars at the window. Bed linen was clean but my friend came up with bites all over her arm so suspect she may not have been alone in her bed.
Breakfast was included & was adequate but not enjoyable.
There was also building work going on in the hotel whilst we were there

Why do moaners waste their time? This is a great little hotel, very handily placed near two tube stations, Queensway on the Circle line for the shops and theatres and Bayswater, which took us directly to Victoria on the way home. Pleasant staff, good sized family room, clean sheets and towels. Plenty for breakfast including cereals, toast, croissants, scrambled egg and sausages and beans as well as juices, teas and coffee. The area of Bayswater is lovely, a real buzz about the place and very safe. Great place to stay. It's not a 5 Star hotel - it's a 3 star. On our first day we had some spare time so we walked to Oxford Street through Hyde Park it was delightful and took us about 25 minutes. Book with confidence! Would definitely use again. Thanks all!

Room Tip: Our room overlooking Princes Garden was lovely.
