“Fantastic accommodations & staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

My fiancé and I recently hosted an engagement party at the hotel. Sixteen friends of mine from America attended the event and chose to stay at the Drayton Court. Without exception, they all were extremely happy with their rooms, location & the proximity to rail & underground facilities for access to either Heathrow Airport or London Paddington Station within 15 minutes. Throughout our 6 night stay, the hotel/pub/restaurant staff were extremely helpful and attentive. Our party was held in the downstairs function room and easily accommodated our 80 guests in attendance with adjacent access to the garden and the chef's barbecue. We couldn't be happier with our experience at The Drayton Court and plan on staying there during our future London visits!

Lovely stay. The bath in the room was fabulous and the staff were attentive and polite and human! I have stayed in hotels where the rate is twice as much and the overall experience was not as enjoyable. Would definitely stay again

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this wonderful hotel for 9 days in August\September 2013 and we were very glad that we chose this hotel over the ones closer to London center. The location is perfect: literally one minute walk to the station (West Ealing) or a 15-20 minute walk to the tube station (Ealing Broadway). We dined at the pub almost every evening: the food is really good and the waiters are fun to chat with. The rooms are very quite, very clean, the wifi is surprisingly good and also free. The garden is very very nice and has a playground for the kids.

Although is out of the centre of the town, the magnificent building and the open garden pays you back for the distance.
i loved the decoration,the room is quite big for an english room,the bathroom amazing and so fine furnishing the room.
i had a two day stop so it was convenient for me to be close to the airport and one day have a visit to the town.

We stayed here for a night before heading off to Heathrow airport the next day as the location is so convenient. We loved the good sized, tastefully furnished bedroom overlooking the beer garden, the large bathroom, and the whole ambience of this place.

Although the room provided a very pleasant view of the huge beer garden, no noise carried through the windows and so sleep quality was excellent. The bathroom was bright and spacious with soft fluffy towels and good quality toiletries provided.

The only disappointment for us was that we arrived too late in the evening to eat dinner as the menu looked excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 30 on the 2nd floor, which had a nice view of the beer garden.

I have occasionally had a decent pint here in this flag ship Fuller's pub. But I've just been served up too many duds now to put myself through another visit. 20/08/13 I sent back a pint of flat London Pride and was told by the intimidating bar manager that there's nothing wrong with it. I took a Chiswick in its place and this was equally underwhelming. There was a Summer Ale on show but this was off - presumably until winter.

Give up on this place. Why not take a trip down the road to Fuller's Viaduct Inn where the beer is always top notch!

I had arranged to meet friends at the Drayton on Saturday the 24th August for my birthday. We had hoped to be in the garden and were planning to bring picnic rugs to accommodate the children. By the Wednesday before it became apparent the weather was not going to lend itself to the afternoon in the garden. I rang up to ask to reserve space for twenty, a little concerned as I knew not all would be eating. Straight away I was told there wouldn't be a problem. I rang again on the Friday to extend the booking to 25 to 30, again was told it was not a problem.
To our delight when we got their we realised the sitting room had been reserved for our use. This was fantastic for us and in reality probably fantastic for the other punters as we had lots of children with us including two babies who wanted to crawl!
The staff were fantastic. They were friendly, courteous and went out of their way to be helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend the Drayton and will definitely be returning.
