Reviewed 10 November 2013

Travelling with another family member, we booked two single rooms for three nights. We'll be honest - the good reviews paired with the fair prices (65 GBP per room per night) seemed attractive.

The hotel is located outside of central London, but is a matter of minutes from the nearest tube stop - 20-30 mins to central London. Unfortunately, the station was closed for 2 of our 3 days (Sat & Sun) due to work on the line, so we had to walk to the next station (20 mins) every time we wanted to travel to London. No big deal.

The rooms are small, but perfectly fine for one. Two would be a squeeze. Good bathroom, large shower. 5/10 for cleanliness - not dirty, but far from spotless (staines, hairs on bed etc.).

The huge drawback with the hotel is the LACK OF SOUND INSULATION. It was like being back in student halls - every door could be heard, conversations from neighbouring rooms too. I was woken 2 of 3 nights due to noise from inside the hotel, which is what brings the rating right down. Quality of sleep should be priority number one for a hotel, and it was awful here. If you're a heavy sleeper, you might be ok, but beware. Hey - you might even get lucky and not have too many other guests visiting at the same time...but for us, this was a huge let-down.

Good service on reception, tea and coffee in rooms.

Room Tip: Try ringing the hotel directly - ask them what rate they can offer compared to other websites. But b...

Stayed here twice and both time were amazing! When we stayed on 12.12.12 that was the day my fiance proposed to me and hotel 55 workers did all they could to keep us happy, let us keep the car parked in there car park because there was no one else due to book in and we over laid and they was fine and was not funny at all with us about it. The rooms are good sizes and very comfy beds in both rooma we stayed in cant complain about anything. Would recommend to anyone.

Previously not knowing about this hotel I stayed somewhere else. The room was great. I even found plenty of magazines in the drawer to kill my time with. The garden, well looked after, is an oasis of green. Excellent staff. Definitely coming back. I felt compelled to write a review having felt like at home.

We're from the North of England, and this little hotel ticks SOOO many boxes.
Like it's 10 minutes from Brent Cross, so dead easy to get to.
Like it's a 2 minute walk from North Ealing tube station, so it's on a direct line to Leicester Square, Covent Garden and the centre of town.
Like parking at the station is £4 per day through the week, £2 on a Saturday and £1.50 on a Sunday. That's all day, not per hour!!
Like the hotel is very chic and, while the rooms aren't what you'd call huge, they're very clean and stylish, and the service is very good.
We just love this place, and we'll keep coming back.

Room Tip: Get a garden room for definite, and get a larger one, perhaps on the top floor.

Staying here for our 2nd visit to London for an NFL game this year and it was nice and easy. Flying in to Heathrow it was only 2 tube journeys away with a changeover which was nice and quick. Same for getting to and from Wembley. Tube station, as stated in other reviews is only 2 minutes walk away. We arrived about half 11 and even though check in was meant to be at 2pm we were in our room by 12. Good sleep even with a street facing room.

The location of this hotel is quite good for distance from the closest tube station (2 minute walk) although it is not close to London centre (30 minutes on the tube). The price of the hotel £100 per night is quite expensive for the size of the rooms as whilst they are very modern you have to squeeze around the bed which fills the small room leaving you with nowhere to even place your cases on the floor. Breakfast was very nice and the staff where very helpful but for the money you can get much better and probably much closer to London Central.

Very pleasant stay, clean, good room, tv a bit small and room not huge. Bed very comfy and a good night sleep had as i got a garden room which was at the back and quite. Free wifi, nice but expensive restaurant ( see review for momo) plenty of other places to eat locally. Great access to the tube (20 min in to earls court). Really nice breakfast. Only 4 parking spaces but more at the local station 2 min away. Also out of congestion zone and easy to find.
First class hotel if wanting to visit london.
