​The fate of the Comfort Inn backpackers' hotel at Craven Hill Gardens is a telltale sign of the way Bayswater is going — upmarket.

The inn, and the adjacent Hempel Hotel, once a celebrity hangout, are being knocked together and turned into a boutique residential scheme of 34 lateral apartments, pictured, and townhouses set behind the grand original white stucco façades. Residents have access to a garden square — the location for the Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant wedding scene in the film Notting Hill. Prices from £2.3 million. Call Knight Frank on 020 7861 5499
