Historical Traveler Reviews Thomas Pipe Inn Waupaca
Go for the Misery
Do not be fooled by any brochures you see highlighting tastefully spacious rooms as unless you book the honeymoon suite you are best advised to breathe in at all times, such is the shear tinyness of the place. Also the hotel was frequented by some of the most miserable people you'll ever meet (though the night porter was very cheerful and kind). Still it is cheap, semi attractive and relatively comfortable even if the heating remains on all night so one bakes to death (I must mention I only paid ?39 per night so in theory I can have no complaints)
I spent three nights in London, and I choosed the Eden Park Hotel because of the offered price (GBP 49,- or approx. EUR ~70,-). London is really expensive, this location was presented as 4 star hotel, thus I thought the price would be okay. !!I have never been in such a small hotel room!! The room was located below the ground floor, but it was equipped with a window. The corridor was so narrow, that two persons were not able to pass by. The bathroom was extremely tiny. Breakfast was okay, but only offered limited choice. Location is excellent, it is just a few blocks to the next tube station. In my opinion this hotel (and many other hotels) does not deserve a four star rating . I would give them only 2 stars. Additionally I was surprised by the fact that such hotels (small rooms, narrow corridors...) are allowed to be operates. Aren't there sufficient laws which force the management to make their hotel safer?
Okay for the price and location
The hotel was okay for the price and location. Based on the reviews of this hotel, we were prepared for the tiny rooms. I imagine that it would be a shock if not prepared. Our choice to find a hotel in this area was driven by our desire to stay near friends in the local area.
The other hotels in the area and on Inverness were a little scary and the street seemed a bit seedy and rundown. We were pleased to be around the corner from the Circle line station at Bayswater and several truly wonderful restaurants. These were the best qualities of the hotel. The staff were not the friendliest, but not the worst either. The cleaning staff always cleaned our room if we left the "Please service the room" tag on the door even if we left late. We chose to eat all our meals out in the city and therefore can not comment on the restaurant. The room was amazingly small, but clean. It was quite noisy with weird thumping, hammering-type sounds at all hours of the night which I hear is quite common with hotels in this area. For the price we paid and the proximity to the tube, we thought it was a decent place to stay.
BEWARE of other hotels in this area. Many of them were scary at best.
The pictures on the internet make them appear charming and inviting...it's a lie. Unfortunately, price seems to be the best guide if you can't have someone in the city view it first.
What were we thinking!?
Wow was this place a bad choice! We stayed here for 4 days in September, we (my sister and I) had just checked out from the Henry Viii hotel which was just 2 1/2 blocks away and what a 360 in rooms and service. We found the staff to be uptight and rude at times, not at all helpful like we had previously encountered. We had to wait 2 extra hours than our first hotel for our room to be ready, and once we were able to go to the room we had to go up separately in the elevator because it could only hold one person and their luggage at a time and even that was barely! The hallways were teeny tiny and the rooms to match! The beds were squeaky the t.v. only worked if it was turned on for approx. an hour and the bathroom was a joke! it was sooo small and cramped. I guess you can tell by now we were not quite fond of it at all. That was 4 days tooo long! On our 2nd night the fire alarm went off twice! around 11 and 12 midnight which was ok I guess because we were already up from the club noise down stairs that we had to endure because there was no fan so we were forced to keep the window open because of the heat! and when we called to ask about the fire alarm I was snapped at by the reception desk and rudely hung up on! Dinner was too expensive to have there and if you weren't out of your room by at least 10 a.m. the cleaning ladies wouldn't clean your room! we came back 3 times to find the room exactly how we left it, only difference was the beds were done. The only good thing and I stress ONLY was that the Bayswater station and stores were just around the corner from the hotel. So all in all don't stay here if you have ANy choice what so ever! I paid over $100 and look what it got us.
Take the upgrade - it was great!
We stayed here over a weekend mid-June. We had a killer rate originally thru Entertainment Card (61 pounds) but took the upgrade to the Patio Suite for 90 pounds which is pretty good in London. The room was very spacious and quiet with a private balcony overlooking a small church garden, living room and bedroom. The other bedrooms were average for London but cleaner than most I have seen.Hotel was originally three buildings connected together so it could be an adventure finding your room if you did not follow the signs.Location great one small block to Queensway tube station. Staff was very accomodating and hard working. I was very impressed and would recommend this hotel.
OK for the price
Stayed for 4 nights - and by the 5th day, I was definitely ready to leave. The room wasn't bad in the respect that it was clean and had all the necessary amenities. However, it was ridiculously small and cramped - once we had our bags opened (not even unpacked) there was barely enough room to move about. There were also 2 twin beds - one of them had a spring sticking out, making it quite uncomfortable to sleep on for an hour, let alone 4 nights! The staff seemed somewhat helpful, but not entirely friendly. The bar downstairs is a nice touch - cozy and warm, but again the staff took away from the bar's physical charm. The location of this hotel makes it very convenient, but for the $$, it was just sort of blah.
We had expected a bit more and were disappointed when we first entered our room. We were used to small, but there was no charm about the room and one of the beds was right up against window and heater. The bathroom was clean, but old and the toilet was in the center making it not very practical. We would not complain if we had not paid over $100.00 for the room which was worth around $60.00. We attempted to find another room in the Bayswater area, but having looked at others figured that that was the norm for the area and we know how expensive London is. There was nothing terrible about the room or hotel, but we just wanted a nicer to stay in for the 4 nights. The street was noisy, but that is to be expected. The beds were thin, but comfortable enough. The breakfast was served until 10:00 which was good for us and it was pretty good and nice to start the day with. The location is next to 2 metro stops, so it is convenient. The staff was helpful. All in all, we had a great trip to london and spent hardly any time in the hotel room, so it was ok. the most important thing it was clean and safe. however, i would probably not stay there again. if you are looking for just somewhere to lay your head with little or no charm, then this will be adequate for you.
Superb find nestled in excellent Location
Happened upon this great hotel on website www.oldh.net. Offered good value for money prices including a lovely breakfast. Location was a stones throw from Hyde Park and only 1 minute away from tube stations. Friendly staff and very clean throughout. Will look forward to my next visit, even offer a hotel loyalty program for repeat guests.

... I liked and got. But so busy shaking my head and wondering about most of them that didn't actually take any photos. Oops!
Walked back across Tower bridge and today decided to take some photos. Just forget now whether have included any before!
Decided to pop into pub just south of the bridge for roast dinner - the first I've had this year in London! Not exactly the weather for it I know but was good.
... we certainly went over the 9 pound daily cap on our Oyster card (the pre-paid London Transport card), because we were criss-crossing the city to get from place to place, rather than moving in a sensible circular track. Yes! More free stuff!
Dinner was back in Brixton. When we arrived and were exploring the area on Friday night, there was one place with about 20-30 people queuing, and in the hope that Tuesdays wouldn't be quite as busy as Fridays, we ...
... lead roles were just incredible with great range when singing and lovely soft and loud notes. I didn't know the storyline, but it was easy to hear and follow. Morgan also really liked it and she hadn't been to a musical before. We had reasonably good seats, but moved in the intermission to really good seats which were vacant because the people in front of Morgan kept talking through the performance. I was on the aisle then, and had a great view. I ...
... reminder of the horrible, unintentional (and often tragic) messes that can be caused by short sighted, un-thought through actions. The West, given its theoretical sense of perspective as being globally focused, still has a lot to learn about how it can best influence other countries development without creating more harm than necessary. It is impossible to predict or model the ripple effects of a particular action or set of interventions. This ...
... head chopped off!
The tour took us on a lovely walk around Mayfair and the well to do areas of London. We saw the most haunted house in London, 50 Berkeley Square, St. James's Palace, and Westminster Abbey and we heard stories in Hyde Park about the lady in red and re-visited the Tower of London. Luckily the rain stopped all afternoon and night, so we didn't get rained on doing the tour. It was bloody cold though!
It was a jam-packed, fun-filled day, despite the weather!
