Bennys B and B
Ranked #98 of 571 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 August 2014

We spent 7 nights at Benny's and would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay. It's not palatial or upscale, but it's very good value if you're travelling on a budget! Our futon mattress had seen better days, but we still managed to get a good night's sleep. Our triple (which was actually a quad with fridge and closet) faced South Ealing road, but with the fan on all night, and the windows closed, we were not bothered by any noise. Our room was clean (though a lick of paint would get rid of a lot of scuff marks on the walls). We were a little surprised not to have our room serviced at all during the week, but as we are not slobs, it didn't really pose a problem. When we ran out of toilet tissue, we simply asked for more.
Benny and his #1 helper, Sindu are both lovely and make you feel very welcome. At breakfast, help yourself to croissants and fruit and juice, and then one of them will serve you tea or coffee and take your order for eggs on toast, toast or a ham and cheese Toasty.
Benny recommended two restaurants that are close by; an India/Nepalese restaurant, whose name I can't remember, but where we had a very tasty dinner, and the local pub, the Rose and Crown, where we had a number of good meals. The BB location is wonderful, very close to the Tube station, a couple of grocery shops, restaurants and a block from a laundromat (beware - the dryer we used was very hot, drying a big load, including jeans in 30 minutes. I'd suggest asking the owner is there is a medium setting - or be careful what you put in!).

Stayed here for three nights with my son. The service and hospitality here is impeccable. If men in bow ties, silk sheets and 6 course meals the price of a small yacht are your thing..then stop reading now. This place is all about feeling at home and receiving the same warmth and kindness you would from your granny at Sunday roast.
Getting the technicalities out of the way..:
The area is Ealing and not pretty but plenty of nature nearby. Parking is not great and is in the side street. It's no parking 09-10.00. It worked for us.
Our room was a studio flat so it was self contained. Everything worked and was clean. The bathroom is small but has all you need. The power from the shower was superb!
The wifi worked perfectly. My mattress was extremely comfortable. The duvet was very cosy and the pillows were comfy too. The breakfast buffet has a great selection and dear Benny would cook your order. He makes the best tea ever! You are made to feel welcome the moment you walk into reception and it's real..non of this pretentious stuff.
I think the only negative is the floors and walls don't keep any noise out but that was only footsteps and some chatter.

One morning we didn't have time to eat breakfast so I asked to grab some croissants and go..but not only could we do that, Benny in ten mins flat knocked up two delicious toasties and tea to go before I could say "no that's ok you can't do that!"

You leave here hoping there will be a reason for you to come back!

Thank you Benny and co for all your kindnesses and being a truly top class host :)

There are many reasons why you should stop at Benny's:
1.The B and B is 3 minutes' walk from South Ealing tube station and there are 2 bus stops on the pavement.It is in a nice and quiet area.
2.The triple room we stayed at is clean and functional : with tv,ironboard,iron,kettle with tea and coffee,plates and forks.there is a large built in cupboard to hang your clothes.
3.There is a Sainsbury Local 1 minute'walk.
4.there is a very good pub just across the street and other restaurants.
5.Last but not least, BENNY is fantastic.He is always helpful, makes yourself comfortable and makes yourself at home.If anything,just ask him.
If you want to microwave food or cook in Benny's kitchen ,Benny will welcome you.
Sindu works with Benny and she is a charming young lady.
So don't hesitate! Don't waste your money on expensive hotels in zone 1.Take a 1 week travelcard zone 3 and go to BENNYS!
Benny has become a friend and I'm looking forward to seeing him again.
last tip:if you come from Europe, choose the Eurostar it will save you precious time.

I'm uruguayan, and i've hired a double room on june of 2014 and stayed there for 3 dys with my son. After that experience we strongly recomend Bennys bed and breakfast. not only because it's very comfotable but its owner is a very kind person he helped us a lot! Before we went to Benny's bnb we have had a very bad experience in a hostel in northfields, but everything changed last 3 days. In the room has private bath,with shower and also you can have inmersion bath! There is also , tv, fan , electric kettle(universal plug adaptor included),small integrated kitchen with fridge(coffe,tea,sugar,milk), cupboard, and everything is absolutely clean! Besides you have free wifi, and very good breakfast. And last but not least the underground station (south ealy) is no more than 60 mts!! the centre of London is aproximately 30 minutes by underground. If I would return to London I 'd stay there again

Mr. Benny is a really nice person who can provide us a traditional English breakfast. All made by him! Mr benny and his wife were really lovely and generous persons. We booked a triple bed room and surprisingly, each of our friends get a double bed! Will definitely recommend to all of my friends.

Often in this day and age, the concept of generosity and kindness is something alien. Everyone seems out to get you, and naturally you are suspicious of people and their possible hidden agendas. Then you meet someone like Benny, and WOW. I have been literally bowled over by the guy. Myself and my friends (8 of us in total) recently stayed at his establishment for a hen do and it was more than we'd hoped for. I don't think Benny could have been more accommodating if he tried. The B&B itself is clean and roomy, what more would you want from one? My own room was on the top floor with views of London. Lovely! The location is fab too, really close to South Ealing tube station (and such a pretty station too). But it's Benny and his down to earth and REAL approach that makes this B&B stand out from all the rest. If I ever want to stay in London again I would not hesitate to book this B&B. I cannot recommend it/Benny enough. He is an absolute gem in such a cold hard city, and he has restored my faith in human beings. What a wonderful man, a true gentleman, who made our weekend all the more special. Thank you Benny!!!!!! From all 8 of us in Essex xxx
