Booked this place up for family who needed a room in the area a coupl eof years back. They didn't say too much so I knew something was up. It was descibed as not the cleanest and basic. The fact that they chose to stay out till 4m rather than go back says it all.
What really upset my partner's mother was the breakfast - or lack of! She arrived for breakfast around 8.30 am to be greeted by a hung over woman in a dressing gown with a ciggie hanging from her mouth who looked as though she didn't want to be bothered with guests. His mother didn't want to be too much trouble so she kindly asked for simple eggs on toast. The reply she got was along the lines of what do you mean eggs? We don't cook breakfast, help yourself to cereal and make your own toast! DISGRACE. The bed was terrible and has mum got no sleep, his dad slept purely by virtue of a lot of whisky! Now there are travelodge type places in the area I'd suggest folks stay there.
I'd also add that this place has the dodgiest of characters hang around outside it and I gather it takes in lot of people who are paid for by the council on benefits and immigration. No offecne to them, I feel sorry for them. But the ethos is max cash for minimum effort. They used to take builders who worked at Heathrow in but from speaking to such people they prefer other places as this one is poor. Can't help with any names but there are apparently better ones around. I her there is a small but nice one in Cleveland Rd by Brunel Uni and one is Station Road Cowley. Avoid this one and also the one called White Lodge.
