“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Beautiful hotel. Great location. Quiet, but near many busy, bustling streets. Our room was nice, with pretty furniture. Sparkling clean bathroom, but steamy and sauna like after a shower until the door is opened. Could use a bit of improvement with the thermostat/fan in the room. Barely a whisper of a fan even through it was set at "high", and the temp at the lowest setting. The room never got cool. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Very helpful and kind. Pretty little outside garden. I laughed when I read another review about the free cookies in a jar in each room. They ARE dry as dust. Please, Royal Park, change those out for better ones. :-). My daughter and I loved the hotel. Would book again.

This is a beautiful hotel and as you approach from the outside you are treated to the prospect of a perfect stay. However, i booked quite last minute and the room cost over £250 with breakfast and the room was most certainly not worth it. Although the furnishings were obviously of a very high quality the room itself was in a state of disrepair. The bathroom was damp- The plaster had blown. Whenever i let th toilet seat slam a cover fell from the side of the bath. The area around the sink was damp. The TV which slides into the wardrobe looks like it has been fitted by some shoddy carpenters with very cheap wood used as a bracket to hold the TV.
The last thing i will say about the room - Please do not - I repeat, Do not, try the cookies in the jar - They sit there, tempting you with their chocolately goodness only to suck all the liquid from your body as soon as you take a bite. In a panic i threw it in the toilet which was a huge mistake as i don't there was enough liquid in London to moisten the cookie enough to flush.
This was room 207 by the way.
The rest of the hotel is beautiful all the communal areas a of a very high standard and it's nice to see an honesty bar with quality spirits.

Room Tip: Room 207 is very tired- but is very quiet

My second stay at the Royal Park (and my first would've been a strong 4 stars or maybe a 5). The public areas are very nice, classical Georgian and grand but on a small scale, very inviting. I was in a very nice room with a study / lounge area and a large 4 poster bed. All very impressive.
During my stay, the breakfast was an enforced room service - as they were holding a private function in the breakfast room (I think). This was a shame, as breakfast was a highlight (an expensive highlight...) last time I stayed, and the room service did not live up to it, particularly as a few items were forgotten off my tray. And check-out took an age, which I found frustrating, left rushing for a meeting I should have had plenty of time to get to.
Otherwise though, the Royal Park is not to be compared to the run of the mill average London hotel. It's a class affair, and I would stay again.

This gorgeous hotel is in a fantastic location, still based in central London but in a such a peaceful area you feel like you are somewhere in the country.

This is an idyllic way to relax and unwind after spending time in a busy city!

Having Afternoon Tea at The Royal Park is just perfection too. A delightful selection of fresh sandwiches, a wide choice of teas, and the most delicious cakes and scones I've ever tasted. (I'm still thinking about both the carrot cake and the chocolate cake)

The staff at the hotel are so friendly, welcoming and helpful!! There is a relaxed feeling which suits the location and vibe of the hotel and all the staff in the hotel we met were just brilliant.

They also have a courtyard, which has a beautiful serene atmosphere and I can imagine is a rarity in central London.

I would recommend this hotel couples of any age or type, families, business visitors and even if you are just looking for somewhere to have Afternoon Tea! (Or especially if you are looking for somewhere to have Afternoon Tea!)

The Royal Park Hotel could not be more convenient or affordable. We were close to Paddington Station and the Underground. It is a boutique hotel and the service is exceptional. The food choices were limited but then they hover between a B&B and a hotel.

The rooms were darling and the bathroom facilities more than we expected. Wonderful staff

The Royal Park Hotel is ideally situated near Paddington Station, ideal for those who are on a short visit to London and who want to be able to get to Heathrow on the Heathrow express, which leaves from Paddington. It is a 2 block walk from the station to the hotel.
The hotel itself is small and the staff are very friendly. The small sitting room (the "Blue Room") has an honesty bar, where you can pour yourself a drink and note what you took on a list provided. It is also a popular place for afternoon tea.
The food served in the dining room is very good. The chef makes a wonderful omelet.
The wifi works all right, once you input the username and password. The downside is you need a separate username and password for each device you are using; and every time you use the internet you have to log in again. Other than this minor annoyance, the hotel is excellent. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Room 601 is on the ground floor, close to everything. While convenient, it is somewhat noisy. I wo...

This is a very different review since I did not stay at this hotel overnite. When we drove to the Royal Park Hotel in our Hertz car were were greeted by the very friendly doorman who unloaded all of our luggage and carried it into the hotel BUT when we tried to check-in we were informed that plumbing problems developed in our room so they had arranged for a transfer to their "sister hotel" (The Cranley) a 10 minute cab ride in Kennsington. This was the same situation described by another Trip Advisor reviewer, AlbuquerquePilgrim during April 2014. The Front of the House Manager, Mark Battle, appeared at the desk and apologized for the problem and arranged for a taxi to transport us to and from the Cranley, and instructed the staff to call The Cranley and schedule us for an upgraded room (we seriously doubt that the ground level room we were booked in at The Cranley, which was half the size of the room we had booked at the Royal Park, was actually an upgrade). The next morning we were invited back to the Royal Park Hotel for a delicious full breakfast which was complementary. Our expensive parking fee, since our car remained at the Royal Park, was also complementary. All in all, for an unforseen event, the manager at the Royal Park made the best of a bad situation and provided exceptional customer service BUT it is noteworthy that another reviewer had the exact same experience at the Royal Park just one week before (did they overbook? I do not want to be a cynical but...). I checked out what would have been the room we had booked at the Royal Park. It was spacious, had a very nice view, the bathroom was big, and there was plenty of space for two people to move around in the room. Although costly, it is London and everything is expensive. The appointments in the room were attractive and the everything in the room looked new and fresh. The room was exceptionally clean. We will definitely stay at the Royal Park during our next visit to London and look forward to dealing with Mark Battle, the Front of House Manager in the future.
