I stayed at this B&B for about 5 nights with family. The hotel has two parts, the main building and another building about 3 mins walk around the corner. We stayed in the other building. It is close to Hyde Park, about a 5 min walk and then another 5 mins to get to Oxford Street. It is about 2 min to the nearest bus stop and metro.
The building where we stayed has no lift but we were helped with our luggage to the second floor. The stairs get narrower after the second floor.The rooms were quite clean and comfortable with coffee and tea facilities and a small fridge. The bathroom was rather small, more like a closet but all furnishings were new. There was free internet.
Our continental breakfast was included in the room cost and was quite good, cereal, toast cheese, butter, jam, fruit, juice and quite good coffee. On several mornings the owner, who was present every morning at breakfast, cooked us eggs. I received some very nice chocolates too from him to commemorate the Queen's jubilee. On departure, they arranged for transport to the airport, which was on time. The driver was very helpful so much so that we realized we could travel straight to the airport instead of going by train for only a little more than the cost of the train tickets and taxi fare to the station.
We found the staff extremely pleasant, willing to answer all our questions. What makes this hotel stand out is the service, the personal touch given by the owner and general attitude of the staff. They certainly try to make their guests comfortable.
