Had a lovely stay at Lancaster Gate. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly from the reception staff, dining staff and cleaning staff. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because the bedroom and bathroom were on the small side. We booked bed and breakfast and it was very good, something to suit all tastes. The hotel... More

This is the second time I've stayed here, though it has changed hands since I was last here. Good clean, adequate rooms - and for London they're pretty big. Nice relaxing bar area and friendly staff. Breakfast was ok, but I'd prefer a larger selection of pastries. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Frankly, I was dreading the prospect of staying near Paddington: I had business meetings nearby, and it was the logical choice.
