one of the most convenient and pleasant spots to stay
in London, the "Parkwood at Marble Arch" is
located in a quiet side street just two minutes from Marble
Arch, the start of Oxford Street (one mile of continuous
shopping!). A beautiful Regency townhouse, typical of
many in the centre of London that were built for the wealthy
200 years ago
The Parkwood is just across the road from Hyde Park at
Speaker's Corner. Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace,
Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground, the Peter
Pan statue, etc., are just a walk across the park. The
West End theatre district is within easy walking distance.
Access from Heathrow Airport is particularly easy by Heathrow
Express (15 minutes to Paddington Station) and then a
five-minute taxi -ride to the Hotel.
The room prices are remarkably good value for this location
(see the "Lowest Price Guarantee" on the Prices
page above) and the hotel is registered 3-Diamonds by
the AA and the English and London Tourist Boards.
[Some details it's best for you to know :
- The Parkwood is a smoke-free hotel.
- The Parkwood is a Grade II Listed historic building
so we have not been permitted to install a lift (elevator),
all bedrooms are walk-up. If you feel you can't manage
stairs you'll need to book a room very early to reserve
one on a lower floor.
- As with most London B&B's the rooms are not air-conditioned
but each room is equipped with a fan.
- Sorry, no pets are allowed.] ____________________________________________________________________________________________
'Small Hotels of London' - "Surely occupying one of the best situations in London, The Parkwood is a gracious small hotel. Though only five minutes' walk from busy, noisy Marble Arch it is a world away in this quiet street which opens onto all the splendour of Hyde Park………Many of the bedrooms have recently been re-decorated with pretty papers and prints and all have satellite television, radio-alarms and tea/coffee makers. Rooms are non-smoking. ……..
Once again a very, and deservedly, popular small hotel, so we urge prospective visitors to book early, if possible."
'2007 Lonely Planet Publications' - This lovely little hotel is just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street and just seconds away from Tony and Cherie Blair's new pad in Connaught Square. Whether or not that's a good thing is up to you to decide, but at least you can take pleasure knowing that you're paying peanuts for staying in a millionaire's postcode. You certainly get value for money at the Parkwood. There aren't many places in London that offer such generous-sized rooms for such generous prices........
"Fodors" - Located mere seconds from Hyde Park in one of London's swankiest enclaves (the Blairs live a few doors away), this sweet little guesthouse is an oasis of value-for-money, with warm and helpful hosts and bright bedrooms...........
