“Great location, Friendly staff, but rooms are a little tired looking”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Stayed at the Hotel and took two rooms as we had teenage kids with us. The double room was small and a little cramped. The twin room was larger and had the better TV, and modern shower.
the décor is as described by other reviewers a little tired and in need of some tender love and care. But as we used the hotel as a base for sight seeing and only slept in the room it's only a minor thing for us.

Location is perfect for Paddington station, Hyde park and Oxford street which is about 5 minutes walk away.though this means there is a degree of traffic noise, and our room was at the front facing Lancaster Gate and the window was single glazed. But in London there always seems to be a background hum of traffic.

Staff are excellent and can't be praised enough.

Our main source of discontent is the lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

We were allowed to leave our bags in the hotel after check out and collect them in the early afternoon when we went to get our train.

Would we stay there again? We still can't decide.

Room Tip: Buy a cheap travel kettle at Argos, take some UHT milk in small tubes and take your own coffee and...

The hotel is ideally situated plus having both friendly and professional staff - nothing too much trouble. Great to have a freshly cooked english breakfast. Would highly recommend for either business or pleasure. The hotel was a major factor to our enjoyable short break.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the rear are quieter - deluxe rooms are larger

We stayed here as part of a Groupon Voucher - it was fairly cheap and the saying you get what you pay for rings true with this hotel. I'll start off by saying it was great as parking was cheap and location was also handy right next to lancaster gate. The Steak Grill house opposite is also worth a visit! However, the decor is dated and its hard to tell from all the vibrant colours and fixings whether this place is actually clean or not. Nevertheless, we had a room with a black and white TV. The bed seemed quite small and the decor was dreadful. The bathroom was bearable. Honestly, we both couldnt bear to stay in the hotel. We had dinner as part of the package but opted to go across the road. I've stayed in some average hotels across the UK and Europe and sorry to say, but these have been better than this standard of hotel. If your looking for a clean (ish), great locations and friendly place to stay then this fits. Its not a romantic hotel or somewhere to relax. Its a very old place and the floors creak no end. The breakfast was ok and the staff were pleasant.
Health and safety was not something high on their agenda as when we came down to breakfast they had some ladders spread across the front desk and a guy at the top of them changing a light bulb. Not exactly great!

Room Tip: We can't comment on this. We had a room which touched with the main road.

Stayed in a triple room with my sisters for an overnight stay and trip to the theatre. The room was old fashioned and definately could do with some modernisation.We were made to feel so welcome by the staff however .Nothing was too much trouble and the night porter even made us a sandwich at night when we came back from the theatre ,even though the kitchen had finishing serving dinner. We sat by a cosy fire in the lounge with our coffee and complimentary cake during the afternoon and were given a glass of wine due to the fact it was my sisters 50th birthday.which was such a thoughtful touch and most welcome ! There are no beverage making facilities in the bedroom which is a shame. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay largely due to the lovely staff. Breakfast was of good quality and hot.

I really don't know what I made of this hotel, we stayed for two nights, while I have nothing to complain about, I would probably try somewhere else if I were to go again...
On arrival we were thrilled to see how great the location is, straight off Lancaster Gate Tube Station (which is on the central line) and bang across from Hyde Park. On check-in we were surprised what prices were advertised behind the receptionist for a standard room the rate was £191, for the next upgrade was about £230 and the next up was £300+ for one night! At this point we thought "Ey, we're gonna be sleeping in paradise here!" but we were wrong, our room was dark and dingy, all we could see out of the window was a wall and drainpipes and rubble below us. We seemed to have a problem with the toilet too, it took three flushes to get rid of toilet paper! I can't complain on cleanliness of the room as that was all fine. The receptionist was great giving us directions to the show we were heading to.
The dining room is very uncomfortable, the tables are crammed together and there is no music, the decor in there isn't very nice either. On our first morning for breakfast we had to share a table with another couple - slightly awkward. Then on the second night we had dinner included, well we went about 8.45pm, and we were the only ones there, and there was no music - REALLY awkward.
On the second morning we had to wait for a table for breakfast but it was fine, but it shows the restaurant does need to be bigger. On check out the staff were lovely, offering to store our bags, although they seem to be really pushing everyone to write a review on here, something I feel they need to do after they've spent a bit of money the hotel.
Lovely stay overall though, but maybe that's just my love of London. Could have been worse, but could have been a LOT better.
