When I noticed that the walking instructions were "walk one minute from train station" I thought it was going to be a rough night of rumbling Heathrow Connect trains blasting by at high speed. But the (literally) one-minute walk was perpendicular to the tracks (which run down in a trough below ground level there) and we heard nothing of the trains. In fact, this is the quietest hotel I can remember staying in. They really did a fine job at soundproofing; much appreciated. The place is really fresh and upscale, with excellent appointments (the sleek polished chrome shower controls were really cool to operate). The room was not large but no problem. We were extremely comfortable staying there. It's a 12 minute walk to Ealing Broadway tube station to go into central London, as an alternative to the Paddington train connection. The breakfasts were great (we had salmon with scrambled eggs both mornings) and the lady who served us in the breakfast room was funny and charming and very attentive. We would have loved to relax over breakfast but both mornings we had tight schedules. For dinners we at the associated pub, and it was ok. Pretty standard UK pub food. We will definitely try to book at Drayton Court next time we are in the London area. The trip to LHR was just 20 minutes (that one minute walk takes you to the Heathrow Connect, when then gets you to LHR after only a few stops). VERY convenient. Very nice stay. Thanks!
