“Not as close to the airport as it claims”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2011

So I chose this hotel because I wanted to stay close to the Heathrow Airport. It claims to be a hotel, but it is more like a bed and breakfast. A cheaper bed and breakfast. Its in a rural part of England. You have to take the underground and then the National Rail to get there. It takes a good hour from central London. Rather, you could stay at Paddington area (so still in central London), and then take the underground to Heathrow. My boyfriend and I spent our last night at this hotel and it is in the middle of nowhere. We ended up picking up a pizza from this little convenience store for dinner. That was all that there was. We also ended up spending 18 pounds on a taxi. That's the same price it would cost you to get on a train from Paddington to get to there airport. The staff was friendly. The room is cheap. We didn't eat the breakfast because it isn't served until 8am on the weekends. If you're just passing through its worth the money. The room provided linens, towels, and shampoo. No bugs.

Room Tip: Cheap!

Rudest Staff i have ever come across and i have travelled all over the world.
Bad location its not near heathrow as they claim and they do not do tranfers to the airport
Breakfast was terrible stale bread
Poorly run- bad managment.
Rooms very run down
smallest shower
Next time i will pay the extra money to get even just better service.

We stayed here to be close to Heathrow for an early morning flight. The location was great, not only close to Heathrow but there was a bus stop virtually at the front door. Great value for money, we payed under 50 pounds for a triple room. The room was huge, one of the biggest we got for that price!
Unfortunately our flight was cancelled and we spent the day in London. This is not the place to stay if you want to be in London! But definitely a convenient location to be close to heathrow.

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip and it was very convenient to Heathrow. It's a big of a slog to get to central London. The first time our room was in the basement; small and thin walls. The second time, we were upstairs, at the front and it was much quieter, bed more comfortable and room larger. Breakfast is nothing special but tea/coffee in room is nice touch. Friendly staff and nice public areas. Basic but adequate for the convenience. Great Indian food just down two blocks.

For me, it was this hotel or a night at Heathrow terminal 5! Left stranded by BA when my delayed flight arrived far too late for me to catch last train home, a member of the airport staff recommended the Channins, Hounslow (mainly because his bother worked behind the desk).

Room was basic - shower, toilet, tv and kettle, but little bedding to speak of. Paint and plaster peeling from the ceiling and walls, overriding smell of damp, unsubstantial lock on the door. I slept little, awoke to a soggy carpet where the rain had worked its way in through the external walls, did not partake of the breakfast and left as soon as I had showered and packed. The staff looked worn out and as if they wanted to be elsewhere - they do deserve better, though I would appreciate accurate directions to the nearest station!

It's near feltham station and walking distance to 24 hour Asda. Lounge is comfy and booking online is ok value. Breafast of cereal and toast is basic but ok hardly anywhere did breakfast. They helped me print my boarding pass which was nice. Tv in room was fine. Not much around so bring a laptop and download a couple of films! Bus to airport but not on Xmas day. I walked most of the way to the airport and then someone gave me a lift as final bit was on grass and tricky with case. Room 8 had a weird lamp think hanging from the ceiling which would have been deadly if it had fallen off....! Not sure I'd go back as was a very specific situation with no tube Xmas day but who knows! Heating was was too high so had to open window. Watched that prison film the experiment and peep show marathon so time passed ok....the nearest pub scared me so gave it a miss! Local area bit of a dump so prefer cyberspace!

It was a dungeon looks like all falling apart. Small room , tiny bath no blankets not enough heat.I had to fight with the door each time i wanted to go to the bathroom ,i used the kattle ! to keep the door of the bathroom half closed in case my wife wanted to use the bathroom because she would loose the fight with the door. Breakfast was very poor , the location was ok .parking was fine .Big waste of money.
