We went to the Drayton Court for our annual Christmas dinner and party. We are a group of around 50 singers and wives with a wide age range! We had pre-booked the private space downstairs which was perfect. There is a private bar, circular dinner tables, plenty of room to circulate and even a stage when several of our group got up to sing on. The food was really good and the plates were hot. The service was fantastic. The young waiters and waitresses couldn't have been nicer and calling us all by our names from the pre-selected dinner choices was a lovely touch. We all had a great time.

We were invited to a party this weekend in the function room at this hotel and can't stress enough that this hotel really did tick every box. From the moment we arrived every member of staff puts themselves out and just cant do enough for you!! The rooms are faultless with amazing shower and plumbing etc. Lovely to be given fresh milk in the room - perfect lighting - great hairdryer, really cant think of one negative. The food for a large function was wonderful - hot plates, very tasty and again well organised with wonderful serving staff. We were very very late for coffee in the bar afterwards and the machine had been cleaned and coffee was finished - not at this hotel all was put on again and super coffee was then served cheerfully to our crowd. We cant believe you will get a better hotel for these prices so near London. Really look forward to returning.

Drayton Court Hotel
Amazing rooms for £ 150 per night, the same room you would get in Central London for £ 350, its a 35 minutes drive with the Central Line to Ealing Brodway and than £ 8 by taxi to the hotel.
Sleeping comfort is amazing and English Breakfast in the morning is fantastic.
They dont have a gym, but you get a complimentary ticket for a gym with pool in walking distance.
Basic burger with delicious fries is £ 9,50, you can add extras like blue cheese or jalapenos for £ 1. The taste of the burger was so good, I cant describe it in words. Have been to NYC, Chicago and Miami a lot, and this burger is on top of my US experiences. I am sure you will enjoy it!

All was great in this hotel- we chose this place to spend the night before our flight from Heathrow the next day.

few points to note:

1) Location
The hotel is based in West London so it was very safe in the day, relatively safe at night. We took a hotel to the cab the night we stayed so safety was not an issue. The roads, like most others in London, are quiet but we saw no strange, furtive characters lurking around or loitering by the roads. The impression I got was that this is a safe district. It is a 3-4 minute walk to the tube station so if you need to hop to other places, this would connect you rather well to the other places in London. It is a 20 minute drive from this place to Heathrow, one hour from here to Gatwick.

2) Breakfast and rooms: AMAZING.

3) Service
Shaved off half a star here. We were made to feel very welcomed by an elderly gentleman who was a staff at the hotel. Upon seeing that no one was manning the reception, he took pains to look for someone who could help us even though, as we found out later, that he was on leave that night. We are very grateful and applaud his dedication to serve the guests of the hotel.

The lady who eventually arrived then handed us the room keys and all - she was cordial and polite. However, upon check out the next morning, when she saw us at the reception, no eye-contact was made whatsoever, no greeting, no acknowledgement. She might have had a bad day or night but clearly she remembered me for she could furnish the details of my payment to the man at the reception and yet she had paid no attention to me. I think a smile, a nod would have been the mark of good service.

Service at breakfast was however most excellent and the maid in the hallway was courteous and warm too. The hotel kindly arranged for our cab to the airport as well. Overall, I do regret to that slight blemish for otherwise, it would have made a pleasant experience at the Drayton a memorable one.

The hotel was easy to get to , with free parking . The room was very nicely decorated with an Ealing studio theme, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice , and our evening meals were very well presented and again good value for money. Staff were warm & friendly and we would definately stay here again. Good location for central london from Ealing Broadway tube station.

This is not the typical place downtown London... BUT, it is an amazing place. Beautiful, historical, with great service and perfect rooms! Great price for what you get and excellent connections with city and Heathrow, it's hard to get both!

Good value for Money, great location for central London. Very friendly staff, good food and good drink. Much better than I thought it would be. Will use again when in London. Rooms were a decent size, clean and quiet.
