We stayed at the Craven, due to an overbooking at the hotel I had originally booked in April and I suppose were fortunate to find anywhere near Hyde Park on the day before the "Stones" concert. Based on previous reviews I would not have chosen to stay here otherwise.
Positives are: Reception and Breakfast room Staff were very friendly. The location, close to Hyde park and Lancaster Tube is excellent. Room, en-suite, linens and breakfast room were clean.Tea and coffee tray in room. Good quality, if limited, hot breakfast.
Negatives are: Tiny room and shower room on 4th floor - no lift. Grubby stairwell and the steps are wonky and at different heights. Not enough tables in breakfast room, so had to queue. Limited breakfast choice. Poor value for money at £164 per twin room, per night B&B. Very, very thin walls. Bedroom doors have self closers on them and slam shut if you don't hold on to them. People next door didn't seem to notice this and were in and out of their room slamming the door until around 4am. So with that, the lumpy bed and the room temperature of around 30c degrees we didn't get much sleep.
Would not stay here again.
