Best Western Mornington Hotel.

Victorian character in the heart of London.

Best Western Mornington Hotel is ideally located in the heart of London, within walking distance of Lancaster Gate tube station and right opposite Hyde Park. Were also within easy reach of all of Londons best areas for shopping and entertainment, so you really can see London in style! This hotel really is about as regal as you can get, but unlike nearby Buck House, the Best Western Mornington Hotel is located in the heart of Londons bright lights (not that you'd know it, with the luxurious floor-length drapes that adorn every room).

As hotels go, its hard to find a more elegant place to stay. As well as the regal 19th Century pillars (a mark of decadence both then and now), you'll find a range of Londons highlights on your doorstep. The hotel is now even more appealing too, having just undergone a complete refurbishment! Architects have cleverly designed a new look for the hotel to enhance its traditional features while bringing its wonderful accommodation further into the 21st Century!

The West End is just around the corner, Paddington mainline station/Heathrow Express is a 5 minute walk away, and a number of tempting restaurants can be found in the time it takes to nibble on a Michelin-starred hors doeuvre. WiFi access is provided free of charge too, which makes it even more satisfying to tell your friends back home all about the wonderful time youre having!

*Please note* Lancaster Gate station is closed from 4th of January until July 2017. Central line trains will not stop at Lancaster Gate while we replace both lifts. For the Central line, please use nearby Marble Arch or Queensway stations. You can also use nearby Paddington station for the Bakerloo, Circle, District and Hammersmith & City lines. Each station is a short walk or bus journey from Lancaster Gate.
