“Good hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Very clean modern small hotel. Rooms perfectly ok - not luxurious, but clean and functional, as is bathroom. Bed comfortable. Bar area very pleasant, as is dining room - breakfast perfectly good. Staff excellent - very friendly and helpfull from front desk to bar/restaurant. Great location near Heathrow and for business stays. For what it is, it's ideal.

Stayed here for the first time this week before flying out of T4. Easy access from M25 and a 5minute taxi ride to airport . I booked a single room which was very comfortable but small. The bathroom was great lovely walk-in shower and big soft towels definitely a plus point. There was all the usual accessories but there was no mirror in the bedroom to use when using the hair dryer. The bathroom had plenty of mirrors but the hair dryer wire was not long enough to reach into it.
I stayed in room 12A easy access to the lift which was important as I had 2 suitcases.
The receptionist in the evening was very welcoming and booked my wake up call and a taxi for the morning. They use an excellent cab service called Elite cars.
The hotel has free wifi and restaurant etc although I did not use the dining room, neither did I have breakfast as I had an early flight. Considering how close it is to Heathrow I did not hear any air traffic during the night. The only noise that woke me was the water tank filling at about 2am!!
Good value for money at £80 better than over £300 at the Hilton.

I am currently sat eating dinner in the lovely restaurant (Moroccan lamb) beautiful, clean cooking; fresh and full of flavour. I have been looking for a hotel to use as a bolt hole for my trips through Heathrow for ages and I have found it at last! Small and modern, this is the perfect antidote to the corporate affairs that line the Airport's borders; the service is personal and very friendly... And the atmosphere is calm and intimate. Would I stay again? Absolutely, will I do so soon? Next month and after that? For sure... I have found my Heathrow Haven!

We were put up here by an insurance company when the heating broke down in our house - so anywhere warm was going to do the trick.

The breakfast was delicious, there were so many options and the food was cooked and served to a top standard.

The rooms however, were not great - the decor was questionable, the windows non-existant, the walls thin, and the noise from the road made for an unpleasant night's sleep. On a plus side, the rooms were clean and the bathrooms were very nice.

Not the most amazing place to stay but it did the job - however, the restaurant's well wortha visit.

Stayed here for one night during a forced layover at Heathrow. Loved this hotel. Found it through the reviews on TripAdvisor. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast. Perfect Heathrow location.
A "licensed" taxi from Heathrow to here costs 35 pounds though it's only a mile a way. Better to go to the Heathrow Departure area and grab a taxi who's just dropped their fare. Cost was only 12 pounds to the hotel.

While I didnt stay in this hotel, I was here for a training course in one of their conference rooms every day for two weeks.

This 'boutique' hotel is a welcome change from the chain hotels, with a nice light atmosphere, decent decoration, and very helpful staff.

The training rooms were basic, and the tables in great need of replacement - and the AC also in some need of attention as it was either boiling hot, or freezing cold - however i dont think this was at all the reflection of the rest of the hotel which looked in great condition.

We ate in the hotel restaurant a couple of times, and the food really was fantastic and couldnt be faulted.

The location of the hotel is in a really quiet area amongst houses in Stanwell yet less than 10 minutes from any of the Heathrow terminals.

Overall I would probably recommend this hotel.
