I've stayed here a few times, and always found the quality of the hotel to be excellent.comfortable beds and fantastic staff. It's quirky as well, with the Perspex and the London buses. Bathrooms small, but well appointed.

Thank you for your kind review and repeat custom. We always look forward to welcoming you back and hope to see you again very soon.

The hotel on Picadilly Road is ideally suited to visit the main tourist attractions. The hotel is not as busy or large as some but offers excellent service and facilities and has the friendly/family touch as compared to the corporate monsters. Certainly worth a visit.

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
