I booked this hotel after some consideration. I had looked at many others but kept coming back to this one. I read some of the reviews and decided to take all of them with a "pinch of salt" I have travelled quite a lot and always make my own opinions rather than following the crowd.
We came here as 2 couples (me and my hubby) and my parents - our treat. We were welcomed warmly and efficiently checked in. Our rooms were on the 1st floor just 2 rooms apart. We were all pleased with our rooms. Ok, the bathroom was a little on the small side but how much room do you need? Shower was hot and powerful and toiletries more than adequate for an overnight stay - left more room in case for shopping!!! The bed was very comfortable and had a great sleep - I am a bad sleeper at the best of times. We went down to breakfast just before 9am and we seated promptly. We were more than happy about the breakfast. There was a lot of choice - cereals, muesli, fruit, yogurt, bread, rolls, toast, croissants, Danish pastries, ham, cheeses and then the hot selection of sausages, scrambled eggs and tomatoes. Ok so bacon and eggs cooked other ways were an extra charge but I fail to understand how other travellers can slate the food available?
They were more than happy to safely store our luggage for the day - even though we had checked out. This was great as shopping with a suitcase is not an easy thing and saved £18 in left luggage costs as Waterloo.
Ok so Bayswater does seem to be a Spanish area but that was fine by us. To be honest, having read a lot of the reviews on here, it makes me ashamed to be british. Talk about a nation of moaners -funny how no-one writes compliments but boy do they know how to moan.
We would definitely stay here again!!!!
