The hotel is ideally situated near Bayswater station and Queensway. The staff are pleasant and do their utmost to ensure that expectations are met. They upgraded my room at no charge to a double larger sized suite, which was a great touch. Their standard rooms are small, but I recommend that long-stay travelers in particular ask for the larger room upgrade, as it is well worth it for the extra space.
The bathrooms are clean and well kept and the shower is excellent with constant hot water and good pressure. The only gripes I have are that it is difficult to get to your room when you have a lot of luggage, because even though there is a lift, you still may have to take the stairs on the floor to get to certain rooms. Also, the lift was out of service during my check out period, which was a major inconvenience. Nonetheless, the staff do offer to assist in these circumstances.
One final quip I have is with the breakfast charge, which, at 12 pounds seems a bit pricey, especially considering the fact that certain other hotels in the area offer free breakfast, albeit not full english, like at Shaftesbury. It would be a nice touch to add a more simple breakfast at no charge, in my opinion.
