My husband discovered this hotel on a recent trip to London and we just enjoyed a return visit as a family. First and foremost, it is in a lovely part of town, near to the Paddington and Lancaster Gate tube stations and a very short walk from Hyde Park. The hotel staff is very warm and friendly, and the rooms, while not large, are very comfortable and clean. Our group had four rooms at the hotel and some said the water pressure wasn't everything you could ask for in a shower, but I did not personally find that a problem. When we checked in there had been a bit of a mix up as to which room the rollaway bed was to land, but Mark at the front desk went out of his way to rectify the situation for us and even sent up a bottle of champagne by way of apology. In the morning you can enjoy a continental breakfast or order American or English breakfast from the menu if you prefer. By the time we arrived at the Royal Park we had been traveling for 2 weeks and I was delighted to see little ramekins of peanut butter (Nutella too!) on the breakfast table. Sometimes it is the little things like that that you don't even realize how much you are missing that make for a great stay. The breakfast room is small but you can reserve a table for your group the night before if you have a particular time you wish to eat. Otherwise, you can just drop down whenever. One night after a long day of sightseeing, a few of us were too exhausted to go out and we ordered room service. The menu isn't large, but the food was good and not terribly expensive - think roast chicken, caesar salad, burgers, etc. The hotel is close to a number of good restaurants and pubs and the staff is quite helpful in suggesting spots that fit your tastes and budget. All in all, a very lovely spot with a caring staff that I would be happy to return to. Well done, Royal Park!
