“Lovely stay!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

There's a lot of bad reviews on here, but when myself and my partner came here, we had lovely stay! We were given a room with a double bed, and en suite, that was quite spacious and had a big flat screen TV.
The room and bathroom was spotless, and we were given fresh towels and bedding. The room was really cosy, it was well decorated and had a really warm, welcoming and relaxing feeling about it.The hotel is a family business, and you really feel that personal touch that you don't get at mainstream hotel chains as the owners are really friendly and strive to make sure you enjoy your stay.
It's also very close to Westfield London and is a short bus journey away, and the bus stop is opposite the hotel. Located in zone 2, so shepards bush market station was the local tube stop for us to go in to central london, which didn't take long at all!

One of the plus sides of the room was that it had walls and a roof. In fact those were pretty well the only plus sides. One other plus point was the disused picture hook on the wall which came in handy as there was no wardrobe, hanging rail or even a coat hook!!!
It was badly dated and the carpets could have been used in a period drama. The room was so small I went back to the reception to ask whether it was a single or a double. The furniture had missing handles and was not clean. The TV had a tick layer of dust. There were stains on the pillow cases and I found a lot of long dark hairs on the towel.
Sitting on the loo was a challenge and I am not a big person but I was in contact with two walls! I would never stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

Stayed here for one night as had a party nearby. We had a double room which was really nice the decor was nice and had some lovely touches. The bed was comfy and we had fresh clean bedding. We had our own shower which was clean and very powerful. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. Next dau we took a trip to Westfield which was only 10 mins away on the bus which left right outside. We enjoyed our stay here and will be using this hotel again.

In a hotel with a no smoking policy, to be kept up by people drinking and smoking out of their skylight is a bit of a surprise... After changing rooms for the second night we were again disappointed as there was broken glass on the floor - with a child in tow this was something of a concern. The reason we moved to the room with the broken glass was because the previous one smelled of illicit substances! Whilst I don't expect them to monitor the behaviour of all guests, they could at least have cleaned the rooms thoroughly. On a positive note, you can walk to Shepherds Bush in 15 minutes... I suggest you then get a train to a different hotel.

I stayed here for 1 night recently as I was going to a gig at the Empire & it was tricky for me to get back home. I booked this hotel as it was described as a 5 minute walk from the venue. It isn't!! It is about a 15 minute walk!! However the 207 (I think) bus stops right out side.

My room was small, but it was only for me so it was fine. It had a double door entry which I initially thought a pain, but when I got into bed I realised it was for noise reduction & it was a brilliant idea!

My bed was comfortable, the sheets clean & fresh. I had my own toilet & shower. There was also a couple of really nice touches. With the tea & coffee facilities was a carton of orange juice & also a pint glass for water!

I really enjoyed my stay & will definitely use the hotel again if I go to another gig at the Empire!!

It is a decent hotel with very friendly staff, quiet rooms and good location; good value for the price. We are regular guests so we can see all the improvement that has been done recently; the hotel is becoming nicer and more comfortable every time we return.
