Nice hotel but....
We booked ourselves into this hotel on the recommendation from my sister, we were using it as a base to go to the Radio 2 Festival in a day gig held just over the road in Hyde Park.
Arriving midday on a Saturday we were very pleasantly surprised to see that for just £2.60 we could park our car right outside the hotel all weekend, not bad for a Central London parking fee. The hotel itself has a very nice entrance and the front desk staff very courteous. The room we had was on the road side of the building and I feared that passing traffic might give a interrupted sleep, however the windows did an excellent job of isolating any sound and we both slept soundly. A long first day in London meant we were very tired when we got back to our room and because room service was well priced, we both ordered and enjoyed Sirloin steak with all the trimmings. Bedtime beckoned and it was here that we encountered the one and only problem - dried blood on the sheets!!. We should have called housekeeping but we were so tired decided to put it off until the morning. Continental breakfast was included in our room rate and as much as I enjoy a full English I decided not to shell out the £5 or so for it and had the continental which was very nice and kept me going until midday. At checkout time I mentioned the dried blood, which the supervisor investigated and informed me it had never happened before, compensation was offered and accepted, so I will be staying here gain but it remains to be seen whether ill book further stays here.
Short Birthday Stay At The Blakemore
First Impression of the hotel was excellant, check in experience was quick and efficient, although a little dissapointed that our room was not ready until 15.00, the executive room was of a reasonable size and was clean, although expensive compared to other hotels that we have stayed in of a comparable standard, the air conditioning was noisy and we could not turn it off, as we were only staying a night we put up with it, the same with the train noise, the meal that we had, in the restaurant, was of a good standard and was good value for money, breakfast was acceptable, although to pay extra for a cooked breakfast is annoying, considering the cost of the room, staff at the hotel were very efficient and pleasant,
Very handy for Paddington, a short walk away.

Stayed for one night at Blakemore with my partner
The hotel is in an excellent location, right next to Hyde park and a short walk away from Paddington station and the tube.
On entering the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely and beautiful lobby area and restaurant/bar. We had to wait 10 mins for my room to be ready but we were quite happy to do this in the pleasant seating area.
We stayed in a club double room on the ground floor. It was not nearly as glamorous as the hotel lobby but it was clean and spacious, with a rainforest shower and large comfortable bed. It had all the facilities needed- fridge, hair-dryer, iron, TV, tea and coffee, wardrobe, and even a sofa and dressing table. We did not hear the road outside our room despite the floor to ceiling window.
We had a couple of drinks in the bar after we had a meal out, where we received excellent service and enjoyed delicious, reasonably-priced cocktails.
We had a continental breakfast which included, cereal, toast, pastries, tea and coffee, fresh and dried fruit, yoghurt, and cold meats and cheese- plenty of choice. My partner and I both had muesli with fresh fruit and yoghurt, which we both enjoyed, then decided we had room for a pastry each too. We did not finish these however as we found them to be very dry, they did not taste fresh at all. That is our only complaint about the breakfast. The breakfast area itself is a welcoming area to sit and enjoy your breakfast.
The hotel looked happily after our luggage for the day after we checked out so we could go and explore Hyde Park for a couple of hours which we greatly appreciated.
Overall, we both enjoyed our stay at Blakemore very much.
I used this room for getting ready for my wedding.
We arrived quite late and were immediately upgraded to a beautiful suite. The room was spotless and extremely clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast and lunch was delicious. I'm glad we stayed here and I will definitely book it again in the future. Many thanks for your hospitality.
