Benny's is an excellent value in a city where the accomodation is expensive. We spent 5 nights there in June 2011. (Family with 3 kids).
1) Location : Is excellent. South Ealing is on the Piccadilly line. You can get to South Kensington in under 20 mins and to Covent Garden/Leicester Sq in under 30 mins, without changing trains. If you are traveling light, you can travel to the B&B from Heathrow very easily and quickly. The B&B is steps from the tube station. There are a good selection of restaurants within walking distance (Indian, Italian etc). We ate at 3 of the 4 Indian restaurants that fall within a 7-8 minute walking radius and found all of them very good, In addition, Ealing Broadway is a very pleasant 10-15 min walk (depending on your speed). Ealing Broadway has a ton of restaurants (including a Pizza Hut if your kids really crave for it !).
2) Rooms : The rooms are small (typical of London hotels/B&Bs) but comfortable and very clean. Our bed was comfortable and we felt well rested.
3) Service : The service is A+ ! Benny, Thibault and all their staff are friendly and attentive to your needs. They make every attempt to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast is served in a lounge downstairs and includes tea/coffee, toast, fruit, croissants, panini sandwiches/toasties. You are well fortified in the morning to start your adventures in and around London. We had nice conversations with Thibault, Benny and other staff during our stay. As a total bonus, Thibault arranged airport transfers for our departure with a good friend of Benny's, for a very reasonable rate !
4) Price : We had the family room, which sleeps 5. At the price of 78 GBP (as of June 2011, we booked on venere.com). This is truly a bargain ! Family rooms that can sleep 5 are rare among London Hotels and B&Bs. Hotel tend to account for kids as adults and with 3 kids, once is required to book 2 rooms in most hotels. This made the family room at Benny's an especially good option.
Thank you Thibault, Benny and the rest of the staff for making our stay pleasant and comfortable !
I would definitely recommend Benny's for families !
