The Holiday Villa is just a few minutes walk away from three tube stations; Lancaster Gate, Bayswater and Paddington. From any of these stations, you can travel within Central London via the District and Circle lines. If you are driving to the hotel, it can be accessed from the main A4 road, via the M4 and M25; however, guests should note that the hotel is in the congestion charge zone. A reasonable car park choice is the NCP just a few minutes walk away in Queensway.
Such a fantastic location recommends the hotel highly for business and leisure travellers. The hotel has reasonable rates, but there have been reports of unfriendly staff and some attention to detail needed in rooms, although if you are looking for a good hub to explore from, you may be able to overlook these annoyances. Guests should be aware that internet is available at a charge in the hotel, so for a free connection (and a reliably tasty breakfast) it is worth heading to the Starbucks Cafe in Queensway, just a few minutes walk away.
