Weekend Away for Mum and Dad.
When you look for accommodation ANYWHERE, you read some apparant horror stories, making an important choice more difficult. I sometimes wonder, if some of these people live on the same planet. Perhaps they are highly strung or are hoping to get a refund or are from an unscrupulous rival.
I have used Best Western before and having an appointment in the centre of London, I opted for the Victoria Palace.
Booking was easy, booking in was easy. The hotel was clean and welcoming. All the staff, from Reception, the catering staff and the cleaners were ALL welcoming.
The Twin bedroom (104) was compact (2 double beds), but sufficient for our needs. The air conditioning was welcome
There was the odd carpet stain within the building- this is a working hotel- not a shrine.
Within the room some lightbulbs needed replacing. However the ceiling lights were the brightest, I have ever seen. Great for reading and would do justice to the floodlights at Wembley stadium.
Just a couple of points, the shower is good, but slippy when wet and perhaps does need a mat. Perhaps the clear glass window in the bathroom would be better with opaque glass and a curtain, rather than just plain glass and a lace curtain?
The Breakfast choice was great, Cereals, Pastries, Juices, Toast, Jam, Tomatoes, Bacon, Sausage, eggs,beans, srambled eggs, fresh fruit, assorted hot drinks. ALL
well cooked. Staff were constantly replenishing as required, clearing tables and cleaning spillages. Very Well done.
Staff were helpful and eager to help, booking out was easy.
The hotel is near to local shops, supermarkets, tube, coach station.
We stayed Monday and Tuesday nights avoidind any loud visiters.
Well done for a perfect stay. less
