Very good 8.0
Would Stay Again
The staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was clean, warm and comfortable and had everything we needed. The inclusive continental breakfast was good, with plenty of choice. It was also very conveniently located near Paddington Station.

Good 6.0
Shakespear paddington
The bathroom was tiny if you get out the shower you hit yourself on the sink. The bed heads were so lose when you sat on the bed the bed heaf hit the wall. This was reported and sorted out immediately. The two very disappointing things were no lift so trying to get up 4 flights of narrow stairs with heavy bags was not fun and the breakfast advertised as continental but instead of croissants and pastries there was swiss roll and shortbread biscuits there was a choice of tice crispy or cornflakes and the only fruit on offer was bananas

Fair 4.0
Saks Rattle and no bowl
Good price for a hotel close to Paddington , however room including toilet and shower was tiny. Breakfast poor and constant noise and shaking from the underground.
Anthony, gb3 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Neither cheap nor cheerful
Nice setting, despite closeness to Paddington Station but poor overall value and room rate would have been expected to be much lower for size and presentation of room, style and condition of hotel and breakfast offering.
Roger, gb1 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
Just avoid at all costs
Really poor, the hotel is tired, the bathroom was musty smelling. The cheap old furniture has peeling varnish. I had two parties of school children staying in the the two adjacent rooms. They where in and out of each other rooms all night, even after complaint to reception. On the 2nd night I spoke with reception again at tea-time to ensure no repeats. Repeats there were, at one point I had a child speaking to someone back home sat on the floor outside MY door, this after reception had spoken with the occupants just 5 minutes before. Poor service, they should have spoken with the party leads and after the first nights antics should have been on a simple no repeats or you're out warning. I had to check out early as could not spend another night in there, no great surprise that they didn't even have the decency to refund for the night not used.
