Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I arrived at this hotel on 16/04/2024 and I was booked in for two nights. On arrival, I found out that I was at the back of the hotel in the 'premier rooms'. As I had bad back and a heavy case, I asked if there was one of these rooms closer and I was advised that there was not a premier room, but they could go to lower standard room, but would not get a reduction in my costs. The Reception Manager was confrontational, sarcastic and flippant. I had intended to spend the next two years at this hotel, but due to this persons attitude I cancelled 4 weeks bookings on the spot, costing this hotel £1,260 on guaranteed booking and a potential £47,000.00 over the next two years. With a customer facing individual of this calibre, I am surprised there is not more negative feedback. However, in saying that, the ladies on reception were delightful and helpful. The room, apart from being at the back of the hotel was good, clean and well set out. The breakfast is adequate, but the evening meal was a little bit of a letdown. I had the bass, last night, and it was bland, so I presume it was frozen and dethawed prior to cooking as it was tasteless. Another downside is that there are no lifts in this hotel, so with a bad back I found it very hard to get to my room with my luggage. The note at reception stating the staff will be willing to help with your luggage, is obviously lip service.

Dear G4678NGjohnm, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I would like to start by apologising to you for not meeting your expectations; Not only should this not have happened in the first place, but I believe we are normally very good at addressing any issues that do inevitably occasionally arise, and I am extremely sorry that we didn't for you . We strive to make each stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible, and we will use your comments to coach our team in order to provide a better experience in the future. We do hope that you will return to us for us to prove that this isn't of our usual standard. Kind Regards, Richard Hindley Front Office Manager

All the staffs i met during my stay either if its reception, restaurant or housekeeping everyone is so nice to us..i stayed with my husband n my two kids age 1 n 3.. everyone was so welcoming and polite from start to finish to both me n my kids. being from an asian background i don't have much positive experience in hospitality or customer services specially after covid.. I could say this is the first time i have experienced such a classy and high standard (5 star) hospitality that also with my kids. Rooms n every corner of the hotel were immaculate. My kids didn't want to leave n that’s how much we all loved it. Well done guyz n keep up the good work..World is a cruel place n people like u guyz make it a better place to live in.

The hotel is perfectly situated to get the train into London Paddington, with the no. 6 bus leaving from right outside the hotel, every 10-12 minutes & dropping you right outside the train station! The hotel is extremely comfortable, clean & has very helpful, pleasant & accommodating staff...but I must give a special shout out to 'Courtney' from the hotel restaurant. I am Coeliac & not only did she go above & beyond to accommodate my diet, she proved she fully understood the importance of serving me a Gluten Free diet & the risk of cross contamination, so thank you Courtney! All in all a very pleasant stay!

Myself and my friend stayed here for 3 nights during half term as part of a Legoland package. From the moment of check-in everything was spot on, the staff so attentive and they made a great effort with the children. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. It was great that there was a little play area for the kids in the lounge area. What really made the trip though the restaurant and the staff and food there. Both breakfast and dinner were lovely and kids eat free so it was excellent value. Massive shout out to Sully (not sure if I’ve spelt the name right) but he was an amazing waiter/ front of house and made such an effort with the kids and such a cheerful chap.
