My third stay at the Hillingdon Prince. Ideal base for visiting the Uni and close to town. Comfortable, clean room with all you need. Friendly staff and easy check in and out. Parking never a problem.

We stayed as a weekend break. As we entered we discovered there wasn't any bath towels in our room, but it was rectified very quickly. Our shower room was quite small. Apart from that the breakfast was excellent as it was included in the price.

I stayed one night here on a cycling trip, the staff were super helpful over the phone assisting me to reach the hotel on my bike and they stored it inside for me. The room was very clean and there were cooking facilities as well as a good ensuite. Very good value for money and in a good location for... More

Although 'Dave 2' at the desk was very friendly the check in speed was atrocious. Once in the room it was very basic but included a microwave and large fridge which I found unusual. The room wasn't particularly clean or inviting but certainly a fine place to crash after a late night.

I picked this one. Just to say my room was booked on a late rooms website. Pictures don't show the true reflection of the room I had. It was small, crammed, shabby. My dog has had access to a better Bathroom and shower. I did pay £64 for one night bed only. I usually try to accept the best I... More

Stayed overnight because we were going out in Reading for the night. We were in the little out building in the carpark which was lovely as it felt like we were all together (we had 3 rooms). I think they put people like us in this building as not to disturb others, which i thought was a fab idea. The... More

The hotel is a great old building that is in need of some TLC. The rooms are very, very basic, but clean. The bathrooms need modernizing, although the shower pressure was great! The staff is very nice and helpful. I found the breakfast to be quite expensive for what is offered. The wifi worked well and was without any problems.

It pains me to write a poor review of this establishment. As my room-mate said, such a lovely staff and such a bad building. To her credit, the manager has tried to make it right by offering me free breakfasts to make up for the hot water problem but I do not care to call them by phone to give... More

I have been staying at this hotel mid-weeks for over 2 months now and must say I'm impressed. The rooms are spacious, clean and as I've been staying here for a long while now the microwave and fridge in rooms are a great help. Beds are also very comfortable and room is serviced daily. Breakfast is good with continental and... More
