“Terrible antisanitary conditions”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

My room was very dirty, stinky with sticky carpet. The ceiling in the bathroom was leaking heavily when somebody used a bathroom upstairs.
NO mattress OR pillow protectors!!! You supposed to sleep under sheet and never washed bed throw. Bed is falling appart - had two sleepless nights
And one more thing that just made me very angry and unhappy that they started a demolition works in a room next to mine at 7:30am - making it awful and impossible to stay in the room
Absolutely disgusting!!!

Nice, fresh rooms with good facilites. The room had a double and a single, which was more than I needed, but would be great for a family. Bathroom was clean overall, but remanents of someone's shaving in the sink. Will stay here again as so convenient to the Uni.

Six of us stayed here for four nights, and we were very pleased with our accommodation. The rooms were large and clean and one of them even had an extra bed! The staff was always friendly and courteous. Breakfast was excellent (it was included in our room price) and we appreciated the choice of English or Continental breakfast. Overall the hotel was in a great location, although situated on the main road and near the hospital, there was a lot of noise from ambulances etc. But this was not too much of an inconvenience. Yes, the decor is a bit dated as several other reviews have noted, but it is good value for money.

We stayed at the hillingdon prince in 1st march in order to visit our daughter who is at the university for her birthday. The staff were very friendly and efficient and our room was very clean, containing everything we needed for our stay (including a whirlpool bath which was I pleasant surprise for a hotel that classes itself as 'no frills'! Breakfast the next morning was excellent with plenty if choice and all for the advance price of £5. We will definitely use this hotel for future visits to our daughter who lives on the same road, making it most convenient!

I booked hotel at last minute without much looking around.turned out to be very good choice. Very conveniently located but still quiet. The staff were very warm and friendly was upgraded to double for same price as a single. Room was spacious and clean. Also very fast wifi for free.
I would certainly stay again and would commend hotel 100% as very reasonably priced

The hotel consists of a number of neighbouring properties, which gives it a bit of an odd feel. The room was clean, tidy and reasonable size. However the hotel puts a microwave, electric hobs, metal sink and fridge in the bedroom. Whilst some people my like this, as it keeps costs down, I'm uncomfortable having cooking facilities in a bedroom. Microwave is ok, but the white fomica (circa 1960s design) and metal sink and hobs were seriously at odds with the antique wooden furniture. Found it bit weird. However that said, room was decent enough, bathroom clean and it was good value.
