Historical Traveler Reviews Britannia Court Hotel London
Like at home
I had a very busy time when I was on my buissnes trip in London and just becouse of fantastic location of hotel where I was staing everything gone quickly and easy. I was glad that after long day I could came to cousy and nice room. Had a lovely welcome at breakfast time with nice coffe and fresh bread. Like at home..
Best hotel in Bayswater
My son and I stayed a total of 7 nights and were extremely happy with every aspect of the Hotel.
A couple of months earlier we'd stayed at the Crowne Plaza London-St. James which cost 4 times as much and was not nearly as clean and comfortable. Bayswater is a great location for restaurants as well.
Naomi's Mom is such a great cook and the food smells so good that I just wish we could have eaten dinner there occasionally; especially after a long days shopping! Sadly it's breakfast only but that's really good as well.
Nice people, good firm mattresses, great showers and very clean rooms. I could not ask for more. Highly recommended.
Nice Little Hotel
I found this hotel on tripadvisor.com. We needed an inexpensive hotel for our very last night in London. Britannia Court is a simple, no frills hotel. The room was very clean, service was great and the breakfast was wonderful. The location was perfect for our visit to the Portobello Market on Saturday.
Note not to bring too much luggage. We were on the 2nd floor and getting up and down the stairs wasn't easy with all of our luggage.
Other than that, I would recommend it.
Fantastic, friendly,clean ,great location hotel!!!
stayed here for 2 nights in june, during wimbledon fortnight.
very friendly staff, lovely breakfast. fantastic value for money. we unfortunately could not get a en-suite room due to the hotel being nearly full, but the cleanliness of the shared toilet was first class.
will definately stay again!!!
Great food, cheap, convenient, comfortable
Hotel Britannia Court -- just a 10 minute walk from Paddington and the Heathrow Express -- provides way more than the average budget hotel. The prices (55 pounds for a double and 30-40 for a single) are astoundingly affordable for the location and service, which includes an out-of-this-world breakfast. I would say it was homey, but that's maybe selling it short. In addition to the requisite comfy bed, the room I stayed in had high ceilings, tall windows and ornate moldings plus a smattering of super-cool but functional fixtures. And the breakfast...let's just say that I never ate a lunch during my entire stay. Prepare to be stuffed with (or at least offered) fresh eggs, organic yogurt, fruit, cheeses, various toasts and pastries, meats, cereals, meusli, plus good coffee from your own mini French press. I stayed here while attending a conference, and the staff helped me plot a walking route entirely through parks to my meeting. Thanks to Naomi (the owner) and co. for a great stay! Hands-down, this will be my lodging of choice for all future trips to London.
I stayed at Brittania Court in February and thought it to be wonderful. The hotel itself is cozy and the room I stayed in was clean and bright. Also the location is brilliant-- near everything that I needed and with the tube stops so close by I could go almost anywhere I wanted to in the city with ease.
At the time that I was there I was also finishing up a term paper which worked out brilliantly because my room was perfect for this-- quiet and comfortable and really condusive to me getting my work done without any distractions.
I have to say though, my favorite part was breakfast which, thankfully, wasn't limited to the normal stale cornflakes like most hotels but instead various fresh 'breakfasty' foods.
All in all, I had a lovely time at Brittania Court Hotel and will try to stay there again upon my next visit to London...
A lovely little hotel in the heart of london
The best deal in town! reasonably priced hotel in a very convenient location, plus excellent breakfast and friendly staff.
Rule Britannia Court
I arrived in London from Hong Kong not knowing where I was going to stay. People had told me of the plethora of reasonably priced hotels in the Bayswater/Notting Hill area and so I headed that way. I had almost given up hope after visiting a number of dives in the area until I happened upon the Britannia Court Hotel on Inverness Terrace. I was immediately struck by the excellent artwork hanging in the reception area (not to mention the dog hanging out by the desk) and was hugely encouraged by the friendliness of Naomi, the owner/operator. I was shown the available rooms and quickly decided to make the BCH my base in London. The room was recently decorated and the bathroom was clean and pleasant. The bed was comfortable and the linen was fresh. What else could I ask for? Intelligent conversation, croissants and fresh fruit for breakfast? There it was. The two-minute walk from the nearest subway station made getting around London very easy and I found myself actually looking forward to getting back to my room at night which, believe me, is not a usual feeling for hotels in this price range.
Thank you, Britannia Court!
I come from Italy, Rome.
I spend wonderful days at the Britannia Court Hotel in London!
First of all, the location: ten minutes by walk to Portobello Road and Notting Hill, one minute to Kensington Gardens. The area is very quite but at the same time it`s near to the commercial road and tube stations (two lines!)
Britannia Court is a familiar and so nice hotel, in wich I could find friendship and fun.
It`s an hotel but it looks like a warm home! All the staff was nice and caring.
My room was not very big, but so confortable and clean! ...and not expensive!
The most beautiful thing was the breakfast! At my awakening I was so happy to find in the dining room a big natural breakfast. Most of the products were organic. We could eat fruits, cereals, coffe, milk, herbal tea, croissants, marmelade, yogurt and so many different kinds of bread... delicious! All of this was served by two smiling ladies.
And I could discover the hidden places in the city thanks to the advices that the owner and the staff gave to me.
I have a great souvenir about this hotel and this people!
Excellent find - Britannia Court Hotel, London
Excellent value for money hotel, in great location for London attractions. Hotel staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome.
We had 2 rooms - both were basic but clean.
Continental breakfast included in the price (only £55 per double room per night). Breakfast was excellent.
Hotel highly recommended due to price, location, cleanliness and extensive breakfast.

As I mentioned, London is a busy place. People are ALWAYS on the move. The streets are narrow and there is about a 2:1 ratio of double decker buses to cars, and half of those cars are cabs. Being that it's summer, it is their tourist season so if you add all of the toursits (I can't find the stats, but in 2013 they had 16.8 million. Figuring this is their high season it might be safe to say that there would be close to 2 million in the month of August?) ...
The tube strike has had no effect on the people around here, everything is just as packed as ever this week. We left the British Museum for today so we didn't need any transport - we walked up Shaftsbury and Fid remembered the Forbidden Planet store he clocked the afternoon we first arrived. This place is stocked up with every kind of trinket from every kind of cult sensation from the last 40 years. Figurines of every Doctor, a Walter ...
... but he kept looking around and paying no attention to the road! Luckily the bus kept turning corners and avoiding other vehicles even without a driver in the upstairs front seat, so it turned out alright.
It was beautifully easy to transfer across to Wimbledon. 1500m to walk from the station, but we were willing. We thought we might hop on a bus if one came along, but when it did we were too far from the stop to bother even trying to catch it. ...
'Travelling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer'
A very lovely lady, Miss Zoe Cleary told me this quote and it has stuck with me as I believe it is so true. Being back at home now and reflecting back on the past 4 1/2 months is the greatest thing (though sad that it is over). I have been so fortunate to see and do the things I have and I have learnt a lot about myself.
Learning and experiencing the concept of the 'solo traveller' ...
... that one out! Haha hmmm
I did very little today. I went for a walk and I read.
I didn't cook. I had the lovely Chris to cook scrumptious meals for me.
I didn't clean. Wasn't anything to clean.
