    Very good

    Excellent Location, just 2-3min walk from Paddington. It felt safe and the room and bathroom were very clean. Receptionist was patient, helpful and friendly. And it is a quiet neighborhood. Read some reviews that it could get noisy but doesnt seem to be the case for me. It was all peaceful and quiet.

    We thought that the breakfast can be better. Previously stayed at another b&b in norfolk square and felt that their english breakfast was a winner.

    Very good

    A quiet location very convenient for Paddington Station and routes into central London. Simple but adequate accommodation - everything I need for an overnight bed and breakfast stay. Good breakfast with quick and attentive service. Double room for single occupancy was still good value by London standards.

    The room decor and furnishing is looking dated - but room was clean and comfortable. No real problems.

    Great location..lots of shopping and restaurants nearby and the tube was a block away.l

    Nothing. Very courteous staff, clean room. Good breakfast included with the room. Was a little outdated, but other than that very good.

    Helpful staff. Good breakfast included. Very handy for Paddington station and Heathrow connection.

    WiFi (free) but only really able to pick up in hotel foyer.Single room small but adequate, bed not very comfortable.Website doesn't specify that Amex not accepted by this hotel. I had a fair bit of fussing about this, and in the end, cancelled the 1st booking, and rebooked using Visa.

    Practical location. Clean. Freshly cooked English breakfast. Met my expectation for a long week-end in London.

    Small single room. Small bathroom-unit, but I knew about it.

    Fabulous

    The location is very convenient to Paddington Station and from there you can access all of London.

    I would have liked a little variety in the breakfast. The "full English breakfast" was only fair to begin with and after 4 or 5 days of it I would have really appreciated a little more choice.

    The room was clean. Water in shower nice and hot.

    Tea and coffee facilities in room but no teaspoons! Third floor room up 5 flights of stairs ( No lift ) with loose dirty stair carpet. Breakfast only available 7.30am to 8.45am. Not good if you are on holiday. Also when hotel is full, the breakfast room is not able to seat all guests. Some have to stand and wait for a table to clear. None of the staff have English as a first language. See next question. Would I recommend this hotel. Not unless the rest of London has burned to the ground.

    Good location near Paddington Station, friendly staff, good breakfast included.

    The single room was very small, especially the bath, but enough for a short stay.

    Superb

    Reception and breakfast staff were excellent. Location so close to everything, across the road from Paddington Station.

    Maintenance man was a bit rude when I reported a smell of gas in the basement room where I was staying.
