With 54 guest rooms the Ascot Hyde Park Hotel is a medium sized property, small enough for guests to get to know the staff, but large enough for them to see new faces throughout their stay.
The property might look very modest from the outside but it has a surprising number of facilities for guests to enjoy, making it the TARDIS of hotel accommodation. West 11 is the hotel's own bar and late night lounge, an ideal venue for watching television, enjoying drinks in friendly company or socialising with fellow guests. The Berridge & Leonards Restaurant, on the other hand, is a reasonably priced venue serving modern English cuisine. Meanwhile, the Maxim Cafe Restaurant, located beneath the hotel serves more exotic Mediterranean dishes.
The hotel is ideally located at just a 3 minute walk from Paddington station, which is serviced by the Circle, Hammersmith & City, Bakerloo and District Lines, providing guests with easy access to the rest of the city. It also has National Rail services, meaning that international guests can explore the rest of the country if they so wish. Attractions such as Greenwich and the artsy area of South Bank are just short tube rides away.
Being located in Paddington, which is near the Bayswater, West End and Notting Hill areas, guests will not always have to use the tube in order to enjoy a good day out. Hyde Park, Oxford street, Kensington Palace and Gardens and a selection of the city's theatres areall within walking distance for those who don't mind a bit of a stroll.
