As far as budget hotels go, this one is perfectly acceptable. It does have the feeling of pimped-up-student-halls rather than a hotel though. The bedrooms are freshly decorated and clean. The open plan reception/bar/eatery lacks any atmosphere; infact the area reminded me of a motorway service station. The breakfast is very basic with the eatery offering a very limited lunch/dinner menu which was overpriced and lacked quality (avoid). A 5-10 min walk will take you into the village of Colnbrook where there are a couple of other places to eat (The Ostrich Gastro Pub is worth a visit).
My only major complaint was the air-con system. It did not work which resulted in the temperature in the room remaining uncomfortably warm. After a couple of exchanges with reception they moved me to another part of the building where the air-con almost worked.
Overall a perfectly comfortable stay and should you be looking for a cheap bed for a night you could do a lot worse than this place
