Pleasant staff. Clean, modern rooms with complimentary fruit. Good coffee facilities. Good shower. Was taken down very narrow stairs into basement rooms. As a female on my own I didn't really like going down the stairs and staying there overnight. The room itself was tiny but this was ok as I was only there one night. However at 9.20pm an industrial type noise started up outside my room and went on all night. Hideous night's sleep.
although the room is modern, and the location good to and from Paddington train station, there is no elevator to get up the 2 flights of stairs with luggage, the bed is too big for room and definitely two people would have trouble moving around in such a small space. two night here was enough, I am glad I booked another hotel for my next 3 nights just down the street.
We have stayed in previous years at an earlier incarnation of this hotel, when operated by Best Western as the Shaftesbury Paddington Court, proving satisfactory, hence our return. The establishment appears to have undergone ownership change, and is now deemed (for reasons not clear to me) Park Grand Paddington Court. My membership card for Best Western was (of course) declined on presentation. On this occasion we booked (according to their Hotel email confirming our stay), a 'Paddington Court Executive Room - Deluxe Double'. This offered in repetitive prose, 'a lovely place to rest ( ... ) a lovely stay that goes beyond your expectations'. Our walks back and forth across a rainy Devonshire Terrace were indeed 'beyond expectation'. We assumed that as on our previous visits this room would be within the hotel's main building. Instead, on arrival, we were shown across pavements and puddles to another building above doors of which could be dimly discerned 'Paddington Court Suites', and followed our assigned guide through multiple maze-like suitcase hugging corridors to a small room. We are well aware of these so-called 'suites' and have avoided them in the past precisely because entry and exit particularly to breakfast is to struggle back and forth across traffic and a rain swept early morning street. No longer an easy stroll to eat, wearing light garments appropriate to the 'rest' (sic) and relaxation promised by this hotel. By the way, adding insult to this injury, hotel management practices a 'sign on' arrival at breakfast rather than guests calling out a room number as is the custom in multiple countries, I believe. The moral of this story? Be street-wise when booking at this establishment which straddles the streets of Paddington. Especially when your weather is likely to be intemperate, ask precisely where you will be located. Finally, despite shivering daily in a rain sodden street, I have to record that hotel staff - especially at 7am breakfast - are excellent, swiftly attentive to its guests. Perhaps the newly appointed hotel management of 'Park Grand' can pursue the same policy ...
I first visited London more than forty years ago. Over the years I stayed in a lot of different hotels. In the Park Grand Paddington Court and the Paddington Court Executive Rooms I finally found the atmosphere, the friendliness, the efficiency and the unobtrusive service I was looking for all those years.
Stayed here for three days on a business trip. Did not spend too much time at the hotel, but it was silent, good bed, shower with warm water & not too cold nor hot. Paid 200 pounds for three nights that I found very good value for the stay in London.
Arrived at the hotel at 1:45, 15 minutes before check in, we were greeted with polite and friendly staff. After checking in we were escorted to our room. The hotel had upgraded our room to a club suite due to it being my birthday they decorated the bed with towel swans & rose petals and also left a very tasty chocolate mouse, since then they had gone above and beyond every second by calling us an hour after we checked in to ensure we settled in ok and they have also discounting our breakfast ( an amazing breakfast ) They have been very hospitable I would recommend this hotel to everyone. We are a 5 min walk from Paddington station and the 205 bus which goes all over London! Really want to say thanks to the staff for all their hard work and going that extra mile with out us having to ask. You've made this weekend extra special!! :)
Firstly, the room was very small that we couldn't walk around or open our suit case and the toilet was very small too that you can't change in the toilet or take a good shower. Secondly, the location was a bit far from Hyde park. Also neighborhood wasn't spirited as I was expected. I don't believe it deserves 4 star for such a small room with bad location. However, it had a good wifi and staffs.
We were originally booked to The Park Grand Paddington but were transferred to the Court Rooms as "there were some problems with the rooms". We were told that it is a sister hotel and has been recently refurbished. The staff at Court Rooms were very welcoming and everything went smoohtly in terms of booking (though we arrived a bit early we got our room at 1 pm already). We had a reservation for 3 persons so we were given the Clubroom from the Terrace Suites building accross the road from the reception. The room was on the basement floor and the windows opened to small terrace courtyards but you had to do a lot of twisting and turning to see what the weather was like outside. And the free wifi did not reach the room. We complained about the wifi issue and the hotel had service men arrive almost immediately to install and additional router to improve the connectivity. Helped a bit but the connection was quite slow still. And at least the Clubroom had not been refurbished and looked nothing like the pictures in the hotel website. The bathroom had been redone and was very nice and spacious but the main room was quite outdated. We booked the original hotel without breakfast but due to the relocation need we were compensated with free breakfasts for the three of us throughout our 3 night stay. The breakfast room was quite small and busy so we had to wait a while for a table each morning. Breakfast selection was ok, not too wide but we found what we wanted. In addition to the service, the best part of the hotel is the location. A few minutes walk to Paddington station and about the same distance to Lancaster Gate tube station. And plenty of restaurants and pubs nearby to choose from.
Lovely if small room. Clean and comfortable. Air conditioning is amazing. Bed soft and more than adequate for one. Fridge and microwave in the room were a nice touch. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Reception were friendly and efficient on arrival and I was shown to my room.
On arrival we were upgraded for some reason to a Club Room in the terrace opposite the hotel.Not a huge room but this is London. Great bathroom, sparkly clean. Very modern, ie grey and black furnishings. Not noisy either as this is just off Craven Street. Lots of pubs, restaurants and Hyde Park a minute or two away. The restaurant is in the sister hotel a couple of minutes away but we did not eat there as we would have been the only diners and we like a bit of buzz. Breakfast, not included, was in the hotel: we tried it the first morning but neither the coffee nor the juice were of good quality so we breakfasted out on subsequent mornings. A continental breakfast is £6.95 pp. Providing good quality coffee and juice would be cost effective! The hotel is about a five minutes walk from Paddington Station, seventeen minutes to Little Venice (try the English breakfast on the barge there) All the staff were very pleasant and helpful
