We were visting friends staying in Harrow-on-the-Hill, and the Old Etonian is just 5 minutes from their place. We stayed a total of 11 nights on 2 seperate occassions, in July & August of this year.
What can I say about the hotel? When we first arrived, my friend had to ring Mr. Pele, the proprietor, who came down the street to let us in. We were a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids), the only room available when we arrived (which was pre-booked) was on the first floor with one double bed and one single bed - we had to somehow accomodate in this. However, it might have been the honeymoon suite, because the shower room only had transparent glass, not even a curtain! I had to send my wife and daughter down for breakfast before I could shower.
Anyway, Mr. Pele did move us after 2 days into a room with 2 beds and a bathroom with a door. Breakfast was adequate without being fancy, and that's exactly what the hotel was too.
If I were harsh, there's so many things that were not upto standard. But overall, we didn't mind the gaps (sic) so much as we were only there for the nights. And overall, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff, including Mr. Pele, were all very courteous and polite.
The place has potential because it enjoys a great location close to Harrow School. With a little bit more thought, it can be a really nice place to stay at.
Recommended but go with limited expectations!
