“Ideal for short stay”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Pleasant stay at Garden Court Hotel for one night. I found the room clean and the bed comfortable. The room was provided with a TV, hairdryer, desk, and adequate space for clothes.The bathroom was on the small side but I had no problems with this myself. Breakfast was included in the price which I thought was quite reasonable for the price I paid. Good central location with friendly staff.

I enjoyed my stay here. I was not familiar with this area, but now I will be happy to return. The hotel is pleasant. I had a single room with a non en-suite bathroom (it was down some steps in a corridor). This was fine for me. The room was small but big enough for me for the one night, (or even a few days). The reception staff were great - friendly, efficient etc. The breakfast room is small, and the breakfast options are limited. The waitress was friendly and helpful. I opted for a cooked breakfast and paid the extra few pounds. I felt it was well worth it.
The area seems good, basically large white painted Georgian houses with front steps.
Transport connections are good. I took a bus to and from Paddington, only about 3 stops, so less than 10 minutes. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby too.

I will return for sure ands can recommend others to give this place a try.

My sister, my daughter and i were happy to find a large comfortable family room we could share for two nights. With two single beds and a double bed we slept very well. Bathroom was small but there was lots of hot water and it was very clean.
The hotel is in a quiet section but close to lots of shops and restaurants. With our Oyster cards and nearby Bayswater underground station we were very happy with the location. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was always someone on the desk so we felt secure leaving our bags there for a while after check out.
The breakfast wasn't the best but it was served in a pleasant and friendly manner and was a good start to our sightseeing day.
Quiet, good location and reasonably priced. We would stay there again!

We stayed at the Garden Court Hotel for one night during a weekend trip to London. It was a friendly hotel in a quiet location. As I was travelling with my two daughters I had specifically requested a three-bed room and was pleased to find that this was what we had been given. The room was fairly basic but very comfortable and we slept well. Although the bathroom could probably have done with a spruce-up, it was clean and more than adequate for a short stay. The hotel staff were welcoming and helpful.
The hotel is about five minutes walk from Bayswater underground station so getting around the city was no problem and there are plenty of shops in the local area. On the Saturday evening we were there, there were a group of unsavoury looking characters sat drinking in one of the doorways near the hotel, which some may have found intimidating, but they did not bother us when we walked past. My only slight criticism of the Garden Court was that the breakfast room was crowded and the choice of food was a little limited. Otherwise it was ideal for a reasonably-priced family break in London.

Room Tip: Get down to breakfast early

This hotel turned out to be exactly like the reviewers had stated.
The positive aspects of this hotel are: the location, the wifi, the decent breakfast( toasts, cereal, yogurts)
The negative side is: the poor quality of the bedding, the paper thin walls, the miniscule bathroom( and Im petite), the overall shabbiness of the room.

Considering London prices, I thought it was OK for a 3 night stay. But Im not sure I'll be coming back.

The attention, the most kind and friendly Spanish guys, others do not stand out.
Well located and there are many choices of food and groceries a few blocks.

Worst:

Super basic breakfast, toast, yogurt and little else.
Do not have a protected place to leave our bags, left at the entrance and a sign clearly said they are not made responsible for them.
Shower cubicle, it is difficult to move inside her.

I am so glad that I stayed at Garden Court Hotel, and not in some anonymous chain hotel. It was spotless, tasteful, quiet, had a fantastic power shower, an very comfy bed. What else could you wish for?
