Recent guest reviews
Very welcoming hotel, friendly staff and lovely clean rooms..We had the junior suite which was great as it had a senate lounge area , also fresh bowl of fruit daily and a bottle of water...The location is good..easy walk to shops, bars and restaurants...close to Kensington gardens and Hyde park...We are both seniors and easily walked to Buckingham palace...The hop on buses are just down the road...we had a great 4 day stay here....The only thing I could say is that for the price I do think they could include the hot breakfast in the price instead of just the continental
They 'upgraded' us to 2 rooms in the basement - large, but one window looking out at concrete underground area. The staff was particularly limited in English speakers - even our small dinner order was not handled due to language difficulty. The area is residential and close to Hyde Park - that was positive. We would not stay again - the 'vibe' was not comfortable - particularly since there are so many other hotels in London that feel welcoming and have better rooms.
I visited the Blakemore for 2 nights, travelling with my sister. The marble-floored reception area with the bar close at hand gave a great first impression. Check-in was fast, the room was clean and bright, the beds very comfortable. The air-conditioning coped well with 36degrees outside and our demand for coolness inside. The bathroom was clean and well maintained with all the little bottles we all enjoy trying out. .During out stay we enjoyed drinks and excellent canapes sitting outside on the terrace in this quiet neighborhood. Breakfasts (we stuck to the continental which was included in our deal, you pay extra for a full English) were buffet-style and very acceptable. The hotel is well located, we enjoyed a picnic in nearby Hyde Park and a quick trip to Oxford Street. Transport links were easy What helped to make this stay outstanding were the hotel staff, forever cheerful even in the heat, professional, friendly and endlessly helpful. They seemed to genuinely care about their guests and made us feel our happiness was important to them So many hotels can be efficient, but a bit impersonal - not this one! We are very much looking forward to our next visit.
I stayed there with my wife and child to spend christmas holidays, we had a good stay. The hotel is clean Rooms are small Location is is central , easy to move through the city The area is quiet Breakfast was good overall I recommend this hotel for family stay or singles
Lovely and cozy hotel. The staff are pleasant, helpful and professional. Easily accessible and close to the attractions in the area. The rooms are very comfortable and the cleanliness level is quite high. All that's mentioned in their website is true which gives this well run hotel a lot of integrity. I shall certainly come again and tell my friends about it. Well done!
I just have to say that all was just as I experienced before and this is not only an excellent, pleasant location, but the size, quality and service of this hotel is exactly what you would wish to ask for at the price point. My only, very, very little negative, was that the staff of the reception bar area a little slow to realise that you are sitting there wanting to have a drink, rather than waiting for your room to be prepared or just relaxing. It happened twice. Never disappointing though and I am quite happy to book it yet again when in London.
I had a room on the 4th floor at the back. I had been upgraded to a Suite. Great I thought...how wrong. Open the door and it looked like a Premier Inn not a 4 star hotel. It smelt damp. Look out the window, (and OK its at the back so not expecting anything fantastic).....but over all the Fans for Air Con I assume - nice and noisy and of course the Open top Underground track - lovely. The room had no class and certainly in no way was this four star quality. The front of house staff on reception were great - very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast staff were OK as well. The breakfast was OK - went for the continental and bearing in mind this is a 4 star hotel the Jams and Marmalade's were the cheapest prepacked gloop they could find - come on guys your a 4 star hotel! Good location for Hyde Park but I would not stay here again by choice - not worth it and in no way a Four Star Hotel
Club Rooms clean and quiet. Continental breakfast excellent. Air conditioning a plus. Staff responsive to all requests. Elevator stuck between floors with us in car. Staff calm as they kept us informed of status of repair.
We are here right now and writing a review because the desk staff is generally unconcerned about problems. Lovely neighborhood, nice lobby, bizarrely strident breakfast hostess, BUT—check your room carefully. Room 516 is violently noisy (the tube must run under the bathroom, or something, really!) so small the door can't open because it hits the bed. For two people to dress, one has to leave and stand in the hall. We asked to have the twin beds made up as one, the desk agreed, it did not happen and we had to request twice. We also had to request twice to get the AC turned on properly. Worst thing, the cleaning staff knocked our brand new $44 outlet adapter half out of the wall (it was connected to a laptop) and twisted the prongs so it won't work; the night desk staff were unconcerned and we have little hope that the day staff will do anything. Bye bye $44! The afternoon tea was delightful.
The Blakemore was recommended to us by friends who have stayed there several times. Walking distance from Paddington Station (8 mins), and very well situated close to Hyde Park, bus stop to Piccadilly Circus is at the end of the road. A very well run establishment, check in easy, room lovely (an executive one, room 5 on the ground floor), and delicious breakfast. The room was so quiet, we slept until 9am, which we never normally do! Nicoletta, the breakfast manager, was a delight. Happy and smiley, she made us feel very special. Sitting outside with a drink watching the world go by also nice. Very highly recommended!!
