Great location with lots of shops and places to eat all around. Great access into the heart of London either by bus or the tube. Newly re-furnished rooms with comfortable beds. Free WiFi and a delicious breakfast. Very attentive staff.

Where to begin... I was SO sad when I checked out, because I'd had SUCH a nice stay that I didn't want to leave.
I travel to London frequently so 1) I know what typical central London hotels are like and 2) I'm simply unwilling to spend over $200 (USD) a night on a single room during off-season. I've stayed in some pretty crazy places, and my prorities are privacy, cleanliness, and security. The night I stayed at Mornington, in fact, I had stayed in 2 different hotels that week. All were in the $90-150 (USD) a night range (you're just not getting cheaper than that in Central London unless your standards are really low). My room at Mornington was small, but extremely well-appointed. The en-suite shower and toilet was shocking spacious (no tiny London stall!), and very modern. The actual bedroom was small, but not nearly as small as most. There was a single bed (sooo comfortable too), a suitcase stand, a chair in the corner, a desk, and a night stand. Without any furniture the room would have been abnormally large for a London room, with, there was about 3 feet of clearance all around the bed. I had a nice window to get fresh air, a large flat-screen TV, and a phone in my room. Clever storage maximizes the space (hair dryer, iron, ironing board, and safe in closet. Kettle and service inside the large desk door).

I can't say enough about impressed we were by the professionalism, courtesy and helpfulness of the staff, from the General Manager to the breakfast room staff. Great sleep. Quiet room. The best close-to-Paddington hotel I've stayed at out of 6 or 7.

We were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It's had a refurbishment so is pretty clean and very friendly. The continental breakfast was good - you even get boiled eggs, although the toaster didn't toast bread. I am fussy and stay in hotels a lot so for me to say this was good - then it must be.

This hotel is in a great location close to High St Kensington station, bus stop, shopping, restaurants and parks. I stayed in a beautiful double room on the 4th floor with many windows and a large bathroom. It was very spacious and impressively quite for the location. I would definitely stay here again. A 3 minute walk to the tube is wonderful. The only downside is only stairs to the first floor to reach the lift. I also found the single rooms to be extremely small so I recommend the double. The staff was very professional and accommodating. There is also a great little place to eat next door, The Giraffe.
