I travel through London frequently and I often stay at this hotel for the overnight layover when I don't enough points on my Hilton Hhonors account to book one of the nearby Hilton hotels.
For me, it's nice when most of the desk staff knows your name when coming through door to check in. For a single traveler, the basic single bed/room and bath is a tad small compared to U.S. hotels, but this 3* hotel is around the corner from the Earls Court tube station (Piccadilly line to/from Heathrow) and is very convenient to get to Heathrow or into center of London.
Despite the single room being a bit small for a single traveler, it is nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable for a one-night stay. I frequently snag an advance purchase single rate of around $100-110/night w/o breakfast on 3rd party sites (DHR, booking.com, etc) depending on the GBP-USD exchange rates. The hotel's BW site frequently has the rate of around GBP 73 for the same booking type. One great feature is the WiFi internet is FREE!
I don't often get breakfast at the hotel as I leave for Heathrow to catch the 5:58am Underground train to Heathrow and the hotel's dining room is not open yet and I usually eat the British Air's T5 lounge upon arrival and check in.
The hotel has a small lounge area with bar and pub grub is available. There are several restaurants around the corner on Earls Court Rd - traditional pub, Chinese, Japanese, and the usual fast food stops (M&S, McD, Burger King). Also around the corner is a pharmacy (Boots) and several banks (Barclay's, NatWest).
