I stayed with my partner who came to visit for one night - we hadn't seen each other for a month and a half, and were hoping to get some quiet, comfortable time together.
The bad: It was very windy and cold when we got there at about 1 pm, and there was nobody there. To be fair we were a little bit late, and the lady did get there in a short time.
We got a twin room, even though we booked double, so we had to squeeze together in a single bed - not exactly comfy.
The room was extremely warm and dry. I know it's Winter - but no need to roast us alive!
The bathroom looked modern and (mostly) clean, although very cold and damp, contrasting with the room. The spaces between the floor tiles were filthy black. Had there been bleach around, I would have cleaned them myself.
10:30 am the next morning, we were naked in bed looking for somewhere to eat, and the lady barged in to inform us to be out by 11:30. No knocking, and no apologies. In every other hotel I've been in, checkout time was always midday, so we didn't expect it. My partner has a delicate mental problem in which he blanks out if confronted with sudden shock, so I had to deal with coaxing him back into "the land of the living" so he could be ready by checkout time.
The good: Very pretty place, and it looks like it could be lots of fun in the Summer, since it has a swimming pool and what looked like a barbeque. Close to Heathrow, so it should be great for business people.
Fast and reliable wireless, and no need to ask for a network key. Room had its own microwave oven, fridge, kettle, and TV. Breakfast was adequate, consisting of a couple of packets of cereal, juice packs, cookie packets, a carton of milk, and tea and coffee.
Toilet and shower looked new.
All in all - it's regrettable that it wasn't better, as I wanted to bring a friend over to stay at Waterside.
