Bayswater Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed for 2 nights last week. Our room 103 was very clean, bed was very comfortable with clean linen and towels. Breakfast was good with hot selection as well as continental available. The hotel has some renovations going on but it didnt interfere with our stay. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. My only complaint would be the size of the bedroom, our bed was pushed up against the wall so had to climb over to get up. I would class it as a single room and not double. We will stay here again when in the area.

Stayed in August for a hen party. Typical small city hotel - literally for sleeping. Short walk to Bayswater tube station. Relatively clean. Breakfast included in the price, not great selection but what there was, was good.

Another average, overpriced London hotel. Our room was on the lower ground floor with a tiny window giving us hardly any natural light. The bedroom and in particular the bathroom is in dire need of an upgrade as it's very tired and dated. If you're staying here don't bother with the breakfast, it's not worth getting up for. I suppose the only good thing about this hotel is its location, around the corner from some great pubs, a tube stop and Hyde Park.

good location, quiet area but 10-15 mins walk to underground or bus services. welcoming reception staff. we had booked a twin room, which was quirkly laid out but very comfortable and clean, usual facilities provided. Now to breakfast.......seems to cater more for the foreign visitor, no bacon, strange flavoured sausages, cold plates, and the usual irritating toast machine. Tables were kept clean and cleared quickly. OK for a short stay but probably have breakfast eslewhere!

It was clean bed was fine ,we had a window unlike some other people,Helpful staff and friendly but Foyer was bit unwelcoming felt like a hostel,And the meatheads smokers stand right on the doorway outside but the smoke and stick just came inside and you had to just about push your way through to get outside. Great location plenty of food places shopping all close.and the tube.

So where to start? Upon arrival to the hotel I thought we were in for a treat, nice location, very convenient and the rooms looked great online! When we got to reception, it looked good enough to me but the receptionist didn’t even crack a smile upon our arrival, if she did then maybe a unicorn would die, I can’t think of any other reason she couldn’t smile and show some basic customer service skills. After going back out and having a brilliant time sight seeing, we came back to collect our key and head up to our room. First things first, the walls down the corridors look like the let a toddler lose with crayons and said “decorate”. When we got to our room I noticed a lovely dip on one side of the mattress, instantly my Mrs delegated that side of the bed to me. When I sat on the bed it gave out a cry, this bed was in pain and in need of putting down. It didn’t feel safe to lie in at all. Time for new beds in the rooms. We ordered take away as there wasn’t a restaurant here. When we came back after a day out in London it was nice to see our pizza boxes still in the room, we love nothing more than left over pizza so this made us happy (sarcasm). The tea we had in the room was not replaced so we popped to Tesco to get milk, tea bags and sugar so we could make a proper cuppa. I saw about 6 members of staff and only 1 managed to smile. The way I see it, it was a bed for a night. If you can stay somewhere else then please, do so.

Good location close to multiple train stations and great staff, offers bagage storage facilities. Room is simple and small but clean. Main issue, no mobile reception or wifi in my room. Price is expensive for room but not surprising considering the location.

I have been in this hotel last month for a weekend with my partner and we simply loved it! Our room was on the third floor with a beautiful view on the park. Breakfast was busy but you could easily get whatever you need as you have plenty of choice with different types of cereals and fresh fruits. Staff is very helpful and friendly and always ready to help! Definitely we will visit again!

Stayed here for one night visited London for a theatre package - booked this hotel on super break. I thought the staff were friendly and the rooms were average just what we needed for the one night the breakfast wasn’t good there were no tables at 9am and the staffs attitude at breakfast was dreadful. Apart from the breakfast I had a nice stay at Bayswater Inn hotel.

the staff is irresponsible, does not know anything. They took $50 deposit from me an never returned. The rooms and toilets are not convenient . No good. Stay away! You will be aggravated , frustrated and your trip will be a nightmare. Plus, you are more likely to be ripped off, as well.
