After firstly booking on Laterooms I then subsequently read some negative reviews on here.
So here's my review which I hope will help?
So it was with some trepidation that my family and I proceeded up the M5 from Devon, and east along the M4 until turning off at J3. ( sat navs tell you to leave and J5, but far superior human brain and map proves J3 is better!). Anyhow once on the Great West Rd just keep an eye on the left for the Osterley Park Tube ( big concrete tower ). The 1 minute or so drive from the tube you see the hotel on your left. Turn left into side street immediately before hotel to access hotel car park. If you miss this turning it could be tricky perhaps in heavy traffic to negotiate back?
EXTERIOR AND RECEPTION
So from the outside it seems fine enough, and crucially plenty of free parking. On checking in the the staff were extremely helpful. We had rooms in the outside motel bit but this is located next to main building and you can park literally below your room.
Okay once in the room I admit that some parts of the room and bathroom looked a bit tired, and the water pressure in the shower was a bit low.
On the plus side. The room was spacious, clean, warm and secure. For the price we paid we really can't have any complaints.
The hotel has a pub attached to it. Seemed nice enough and had a family friendly menu which was brought to our table in the pub. Reasonable price and a good selection promptly served after ordering. There is also an indian restaurant also alongside which I believe is very nice.
* On one night we were there there was an asian wedding going on in the hotel main building. Being from Devon we sadly don't see these, and it was a real treat to see.
Don't be too put off about the 15-20 minute walk to the Tube. If you have kids or find it tricky to walk, then go across the road to the bus stop and bus H91 ( every ten minutes ) which takes all of a minute or so to get to the tube, which is then accessed via a subway. Then a frequent tube service takes 25 minutes to get into the centre of town. (Less if you want to stop off at Earls Court for example to access pubs and restaurants.) Also if Tubes are not your thing then outside the hotel there is a frequent west bound bus service to Hammersmith. If you fancy a stroll or jog, and have time, then you have Osterley Park very near the hotel which is very nice. Otherwise if you have more time and feel more energetic, then go west immediately outside of the hotel and then head south at the junction and in a short time you'll be strolling down by the Thames!
This is not a swish west end hotel. It does not pretend to be. It's safe, clean, friendly, and so easy to get to by car. Travelling by car from Devon for two people is far cheaper than the train or coach. On that note a real bonus is being able to park your car for free that close to Town.
Personally I'd rather stay here with the convenience of access, parking, and value for money. It really is value for money on laterooms. We paid £92 in total for 2 people for 2 nights, and spent the money that would have spent on pretentious inaccessible accommodation closer to town on having a good time in London!
We're going back soon!
