The hotel has on site parking, charged us £30 for 2 nights, 3 days - I thought this was fairly acceptable for London central. Staff working in the hotel were polite. Although kept hassling us for car parking money, ringing our room after 11pm and wouldn't accept card payment & wasn't keen on us paying for the hotel room with...

My sister and I stayed here on a Saturday night in March 2017. The twin room was a decent size (although the bathroom was tiny) and Paddington Station is only a short walk away - so it's well located. The main disappointment was the breakfast. I had booked through Booking.com where it said 'Breakfast included' and I had actually paid...

Stayed here with my sister for 2 nights in November 2016. We needed a fairly central base and didn't want to pay a fortune so Ventures fitted the bill. I'd read some reviews before, mostly negative so I was expecting the worse. Staff were pleasant on arrival. Our room was very basic with a double bed and a small toilet/shower...

The room I booked was a twin + single with en suite bathroom when taking grandson sightseeing. On arrival at 1730 on 26 Nov 2016 I was told the room on the 5th floor was not en-suite but there was a toilet/Shower room just down the hall. Where else could I go at that time on a Saturday evening in...

I booked the hotel for one night for myself and a friend. I explained that my friend was disabled and asked for an accessible room. When we arrived we were told our room was on the second floor. I re-iterated my instructions. They then gave us a basement room - not easily accessible. We were told that they are busy,...

Our room 402 was cold and the Bed linen was minimal. We asked at reception for another blanket and were told that the room was warm enough and therefore we could not have anymore, and it was made plain that this was not a discussion. The radiator was never on. Tried this venue as was cheap for location, lesson learnt...

...staff were friendly and accommodating. As noted in other reviews, physical condition is poor, shared toilet and shower down the hall was unexpected. Breakfast was hot and filling. Convenient to Tube stations. Glad we were only there to sleep.

The room at the hotel was quite good as the bed was very comfortable and there was a tv, a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities and also all the rooms are en suite. The breakfast was good and you get a full English everyday apart from sunday when they just do a continental breakfast which is included in the price....
