Never again would I stay here

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 5, 2005

This is a budget hotel in the Paddington Station area. It should be nice. It's on a nice square, with a park across the street. It's a beautiful old building from the outside.

But that's where the good parts end. My daughters and I had a large room with about 5 very very narrow beds. The carpet was badly stained with gum and other questionable stuff. The bedspreads were spotted and I just felt very uncomfortable. We had an en suite room but the shower drain didn't drain and the shower pan quickly overflowed.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to students traveling on a budget. I sure wouldn't recommend it to anyone I know.

Unique Quality: I had my first experience with a Full English Breakfast here. What's up with the beans?
