This hotel is in a very good location, literally two minutes walk from Paddington. The rooms are small but clean and the ensure bathrooms seem new and very modern. This r positives end.
Here is the list of bad points:
Towels changed every two days irrespective if they are dirty or not. Each bathroom got just one tiny soap tje size of a 50p coin for the 4 day stay. We shared this between three!! The cups in the bathroom were never cleaned.
There was no tea and coffee facilities in the rooms. These were only available in the lounge downstairs but the 6 odd mugs there would soon disappear and staff would not replace them!
The absolute worst thing about this hotel was the breakfast. Very poor food - processed cheese, spam, hard boiled eggs and 2.5 slices of toast per two people. There was also corn flakes and bran flakes, tea and coffee, a disgusting yellow drink that was labelled orange juice, butter and jam. Apart from that it is run by a handful of east European women who hardly spoke English and ran this poor excuse of a breakfast room like a Gulag!! Forget asking for more toast as you will be almost shouted down. As there isn't enough place to accommodate everyone there would be a queue of people siting on the stairs waiting to be called in by some sobering battle axe!! Woe betide you if you try to go and sit down without their prrnission! As a group we never managed to have breakfast together! The reason why, is because the time allotted for breakfast was a mere 75 minutes, from 7.30 and 8.45 SHARP! These women then had to clear up and then clean our rooms and then sweep the road in front of the hotel and all the other jobs that need doing! Never again!!
