Positive Reviews

A short walk from Paddington station.

The Gower Hotel is less than a five-minute stroll from Paddington railway station, which offers connections to British Rail and London Underground, including fast trains to Heathrow Airport. As such, the hotel is conveniently located for those guests arriving at or leaving from the station.

Friendly and hospitable staff.

Past guests are quick to praise the hotel staff, describing employees as friendly, polite and helpful. Guests report that the family-run hotel is more like a guest house, an observation supported by the good standard of customer service.

Free breakfast receives praise.

Guests are generally positive in their praise of the complimentary breakfast served at the hotel. According to reports, the morning spread is quite generous, with both cooked and continental options. Reports would suggest that the only downside is that the breakfast room can become overcrowded.

Negative Reviews

Some refurbishments required.

A number of guests staying at The Gower Hotel suggest that the property requires some refurbishments, with old and worn beds/mattresses being one of the key areas of improvement identified. Still, most guests find accommodations in a good standard of repair.

Bathrooms are on the small side.

According to reports, guest accommodations feature very small bathrooms, which can be a challenge for some guests. In particular, families staying at the hotel, or those guests staying in triple and quadruple rooms, report that the bathrooms struggle to keep up with the demand made upon them.

Accommodations can be very warm.

Some guests report that hotel accommodations can be on the warm side, particularly those found on the hotel's upper floors. A lack of air conditioning or even a fan means that rooms retain heat throughout the day, which can be a bigger issue during the warm summer months.
