After reading some of the previous reviews on expedia prior to booking, I was under the impression that the hotel was of a decent standard. Oh how I was wrong. I arrived and was informed that the room was not available but I could leave my luggage. I arrived back late night and had to ring the bell to get...

Bad experience with the owner. When we got there the owner had given our room to another family and put us in a larger one. The owner said, that we didn´t have to pay anything extra. When checking out, she had forgotten, and we had an argument. After we went back to our country, the owner made a bank transfer...

After a long flight and being a bit tired we had a slightly bumpy start. However, afterwards we had the pleasure of enjoying this small hotel, greatly located in London. Paddington station is just a few hundred meters away. From there you can go anywhere. We would definetelly stay there again if the occasion presents itself of a trip to...

Just back from yet another lovely stay at the Balmoral. We have been staying there on visiting London for over 20 years and have never had a problem. We are always made to feel welcome and it's such a lovely clean and comfortable hotel and the breakfast is good with plenty of choice. The hotel is a good base for...

If you are arriving in London at Paddington, it is hard to beat the location of the Balmoral and the price is very good for London. However, there seemed to be a good deal of confusion about my reservation when I arrived and I was offered two different extremely small rooms (one with the bathroom down the hall) before I...

I was staying in London for one night and couldn't get accommodation with my friends, so I tried the Balmoral House Hotel. I didn't expect much for £65 per night, but when I arrived, I was greeted well by the staff. They said that they hadn't received the booking, so had to put me in a double room. Great, I...

There was an initial mix up when we arrived as the hotel had double booked the family room. As a family of five we were spilt into two room on different floors. Not too much to complain about though as they did admit their mistake. We managed to get in to our original room that was in the hotel over...

Well, the pro is the location, a few minutes’ walk from Paddington and easy to get to London attractions. A few other things may be worth mentioning, concerning the owners, the room and the service. Upon arrival, the female proprietor offered me and my friends a tiny triple room (which would have involved two of us sharing a small-looking double)...
