The Hotel has gone through quite the transformation, yet still retains its heritage. Cafes, bars, shops and restaurants surround Paddington’s Mrs Banks. All the rooms have air-conditioning, Nespresso machines, T2 teas, rain showers, 40″ TVs, in-room safes and free WiFi. Yes!

Sitting between the city and the sea, Paddington is the perfect base – Mrs Banks a stylish place to rest your head. Built in 1914, the building was once a bank. Now, it’s a hotel that doubles as an interior designer’s dream. It hints at its heritage, with soaring metal ceilings, mid-century furnishings and super comfy beds.
