Special getaway
staff were very helpful & polite. Spacious room & bathroom. Great choice on offer at breakfast. Lift fully working to your required floor to your room(s). No disabled (wheelchair) access into the hotel itself or to the bar/restaurant as there are steps. Just highlighting this for those who are wheelchair users. Hotel itself is central to the west end & Paddington station is the nearest rail station to it. Though there is the underground to use from there to stop nearer the hotel itself. Cabbies were very kind & helpful to us too.

A Very Pleasant Stay in a Convenient Location
I stayed in a Single Bed room. It was small but good enough for one person. Pros: The buffet breakfast was plentiful. The service was prompt and attentive. I also dined at the restaurant, the food was very average. Cons: the shower tap was very very tight. I had to ring the reception to come and help me to turn it on. It took her sometime to work it out too. I'd suggest the hotel to look into all their shower taps (I experienced same in the Twin Bed room), otherwise, they will soon be damaged by some "very strong" guests. I gave up on having shower for one day.

Great Location
I love this hotel and have stayed here a few times now. It has Paddington main line station nearby and also three other tube stations within walking distance. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They also have great breakfasts and will cook omelettes and meat free sausages if you ask them.

Very enjoyable short stay
First time I used a room in the basement level. I was clean, bright (had some natural light coming from the window) and fairly well insulated from the underground noise. It is very unfortunate that the room next door thought it was a good idea to slam their door and have a full on phone conversation at 01:30 am...

Check in was fast and the room was great. Nice and big & warm once the heating had kicked in. We ate in the restaurant which although a little pricey was quite nice. Breakfast was okay with plenty of choice only issue was the baked beans were cold. We chose this hotel for its proximity to Hyde Park and as long as you don't mind walking it was perfect.

Great Staff and great location
We arrived early and was offered a room on a lower floor which was ready right away or wait for a higher level one. Upon accepting the lower floor, we were given a basement room that was rather shabby, the carpet peeling and the safe not working or big enough for our laptops. We then requested to wait for a higher room which the staff were happy to provide. The new room was cleaner, bigger safe and very comfortable. Only issue we had (but thinking it's more the age of the building) was that the shower and sink in the bathroom took a very long time to drain where you were standing in filthy water when you shower. Thanks for a great stay.
