Location, location, location! Situated across from Gloucester road underground (train runs from Heathrow airport to this station) & Waitrose (grocery store). Lots of nearby places to eat.
For the hotel part, The bathroom is very odd. There is only half a glass door covering the bath tub so when you shower, water splashes everywhere onto the floor & toilet & toilet paper gets wet too. I have to clean the floors after each shower so no one slips & fall. I'm on vacation, not cleaning duties.
The sink pertrudes so far out that as a female trying to apply makeup, you can't see the mirror clearly.
Hotel Staff was very friendly & helpful.
Wouldn't stay here again. The bathroom bothered me. Lots of other hotels nearby. Water pressure was low too eventhough we were on the higher floor. Took a long time to wash my long hair. After running the water for so long, the temperature starts to get hot & cold, hot & cold.
