Stayed at the Gower while up in London to see a show - December 2011. Convenient location - just a few minutes level walk from Paddington Mainline / Underground. Friendly, welcoming staff on Reception and at breakfast. Tsering, Receptionist, was particularly helpful with advice on Underground and Bus services for getting about.

Room was of good size, clean and comfortable though bedcovers, clean and fresh as they were, were dark and dowdy and did nothing to enhance the appearanace of the room - a shame as something light and bright would have set off the room as it deserved!! Bathroom was small but functional - with plenty of hot water.

Quiet - no intrusive road noise and we were at the front. Breakfast was good with a serve yourself buffet of cereals, yoghurts, juices etc. followed by a "full English breakfast" or any permutation of it - with choice of how you wanted your eggs prepared.

No lift but no problem for us as we were on the 2nd. floor. We'd stay there again.


**** Shopping in Oxford Street and want a good, tasty lunch at reasonable cost? Try:

POSINI's Cafe and Restaurant - 29 Poland Street (literally 20 yards off Oxford Street)
Small and unpretentious, you pass throgh the Takeaway Sandwich Bar to get to the tables for lunch, you won't be sorry!.

Room Tip: No lioft - so choose 1st or 2nd Floors!

I chose the hotel for the location. I've been travelling to developing countries but never have I seen a hole like this.

A lot of noise in the hotel at night.

Bed bugs. This hotel is terribly infested. I haven't slept a minute. They promised me a refund but in the end I got nothing.

There are many much better hotels on the same street (I found one in the middle of the night when I ran away from the bugs).

Stayed at this hotel for the first time earlier this week. It's much better than many of the other reviews suggest. Would I stay here with my wife? Very unlikely but would I stay here again as a single business traveller paying nett account who wants a comfortable bed and hot water? For sure I would. Hotel is basic but reasonable and includes a full English breakfast in the room price. Wifi is free but only available in the reception area. Staff were friendly with the Albanian receptionist particularly friendly and helpful.
