I never thought I would be rating a hotel highly because of kitchen appliances rather than thread count, pillow mints or acres of marble in the lobby, but after a few weeks of finding space for milk in a minibar having a proper fridge/freezer is luxury - adding in an oven, microwave and washing machine makes it like home!
I normally stay in pretty high end places on either vacation or business, but after a switch in jobs have been staying in various hotels west of London during the week while sorting accommodation. I found this one as it was close to the office and a reasonable price, but the attraction when booking was the promised extra space after weeks in 'normal' hotels, I hadn't appreciated how much I would enjoy having multiple rooms and the feel of an apartment.
The place doesn't pretend to be a luxury hotel, but the staff are friendly and helpful and it is a very good place to be when you want your sofa and appliances not be sharing space with your bed… Little things like not having a sink plug and no back to the remote are why it's priced as it is I think, but the overall package makes this place great value for money even in this part of London.
I was a little sniffy at check in after seeing the small entrance on the High Street (I am diamond or equivalent with a couple of chains) but the smell of fresh bread being baked at the Subway next door somehow mellowed me and once I got to my room & realised this place can be a proper alternative to a flat I really got to like it - so much so I rebooked a couple more weeks. There aren't many rooms so hope not too many people read this before I get to move into my flat!!!
