“Great hotel with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I stayed at the hotel with my family during a business trip.
Everything worked very well - The rooms where big and the service very good.
The only slightly negative thing was the breakfast buffet which was a little borring - everything else was just perfect.

This is a great hotel, close to Brunel Uni, serving excellent food.
A very "English" hotel, with its chintzy decor. I stayed in a twin room and a larger twin room. The larger room was not made for anyone taller than a gnome, but it had character. The staff were very he,Paul, when I complained about the fridge like conditions in the bathroom and brought a radiator straight away.
I can recommend this hotel highly to all parents visiting their offspring at Uni. The food taste great and isn't too expensive, so you can treat your son/daughter to a delicious meal.
I would stay here again any time.

Room Tip: Don't ask for room 307, unless you are very small!

Stayed here for a birthday treat with family. My room was in the original building and has a lovely fireplace and a comfy bed. I loved the room and wished i could stay for longer. I would of had a great view of the church and green but unfortunately a coach parked right outside my window so the room ended up quite dark during the day and no view at all which was a great disappointment but not the hotels fault. Staff were friendly and I can't wait to stay there again

Stayed here for one night after dropping son at university nearby and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised given that I had only paid £60 for the room The rooms are modern, very clean and very comfortable. I had a great nights sleep. The pub itself is very old in contrast and very snug and cosy. Although we didn't arrive till 7pm and the restaurant being very busy on a Saturday night, we were assured of a table by the friendly staff and enjoyed a very pleasant meal that evening.
We decided to give breakfast a miss before leaving as I felt £11 each was too much and that would be my only criticism.

The origins of the main part of this hotel stretch back several hundred years so the look and feel is very traditional. Most of the bedrooms are contained in a modern extension of the back of the hotel. The location is a bit out of town but on a main road, bus route etc. It's a good 20 minute walk to the centre of Uxbridge.
First thing that strikes you as you walk up from the carpark is that the front entrance isn't on the front, it's actually on the other side of the building. Walking along the front past what would logically be the front and centre you find a funeral directors business embedded in the hotel frontage - quite strange.
Reception are is warm & welcoming as were the reception staff - quick & easy registration and off to the room. Although reasonably signposted the route from reception to the room was a rats maze of twisting narrow corridors - getting to the bar was just as interesting. Decor was nice and in keeping witht the hotels rich history.
My room was on the second floor and the bathroom was obviously fitted out for disabled people - I have no problem with dual purpose rooms and applaud any establishment that caters for people of all abilities.... however here's a few tips for the management - sinks and mirrors at wheelchair are not much use for a 5' 10+ person standing. Grab rails all around a regular bath are all very well but I suspect most disabled people would find geting in and out very difficult, aother hotel rooms I have seen have provided a walk in bath or a shower with seat and wheelchari access. Talking of that - it's all very well making the bathroom door extra wide but not much use if the room has a normal size door at the end of a corridor. given that there was only 1 chair and small table and a big empty space in the room I took this to be for wheelchair access - again, not much use if there had been two of us staying in the room.

Bar / restaurant was cosy & well stocked. Unfortunately food seemed to be packaged meals - for example, my steak & muchroom pie was a stew in a dish with a puff pastry lid and fast food style french fries - indicative of a lack of in house perparation - I could be wrong but it definitely lacked a spark. Staff were friendly. Buffet breakfast had plenty of choices with a cooked breakfast on request.
On check out I commented on the failings of the room from and equipment point of view and was told they don't put disabled people on the second floor - kinda wasted the money on the room then eh?
All in all a pleasant stay but, and a big but - it's not a £200 a night hotel even in the outskirts of London - corporate rate was more reasonalbe but still high for the overall facilities.

Room Tip: unless you are disabled ask for a standard room.
