Acton Town Hotel

Reviewed May 4, 2012

This hotel is exceptional value for money, the rooms have plenty space, nice toilet & shower/bath rooms, very nice and clean, beds are so comfortable, clean bedding, clean towels, good fridge, plenty tea,coffee,sugar,milk portions and kettle in rooms, this hotel lies back from a main road & sometimes small amount of noise can be heard but I suffer with insommia and sleep very soundly here. All rooms have good television sets, breakfast is beautiful, cornflakes, toast, eggs, yogurts,jug milk, jug coffee, plenty fruit juice, choice of jams, marmalade, butter, pre-packed cheese slices, plenty to fill up on. The staff make everyone welcome from the minute you arrive and time to leave. I stay here overnight every week for the last six months and love the place,

Just too terrible!!! The place was on reconstruction, it was too noisy, actually it was a building lot! I wonder how a hotel can offer rooms being in reconstruction. We got a room which wasn´t ready and where the workers slept in. Then the room was cleaned by...the workers themselves! In workers clothes, workers shoes, dirty and disgusting....I cried. I couldn´t believe beeing treated like that.
The pretty house you can see on the picture is not the hotel, but the bureau. The price was imprudently high.

I must emphasise with my job i stay in a lot of hotels around the country, i must point out that this was the worst one ever, the room was very dirty, the bedding was ripped, the lamp had no bulb , the electric socket was not secure to the wall, the table the lamp was on looked like it had been robbed from the local pub as it still had the number on it, i had to walk to a separate building for breakfast, i was told that the bathroom was outside the room and not en suite, but this was used by anybody when they wanted even the staff, again was filthy and the shower and toilet were under a set of stairs which was very cramped, this visit was a total disaster and nothing like the advertised pictures, I will be avoiding this place in the future, I have stayed in far far better hotels for far less money. not recommended at all, but good luck if you decide to stay there, and before i forget as Gillian H said " there was a dirty street lamp in the corner of the toilet ", this is true as its still there !!!!!!

It's a very nice place to stay. 3m from the metro (in the piccadilly line!), that's a big advantage because is the "main" line were many of the atractions of the city are, and in 20m you are in the center..

The rooms are very clean and the staff is very nice.

The only problems we saw, it was the wi-fi that didn't work, and on the last day since we were a big group, one guy in the reception that we never saw him before, called a cab that we had to pay without telling us.. since the pickup's are supposed to be free! so in the confusion we almost lost the plain (literally we arrive on the last minute possible)!

But all the rest was very nice, totally recommend it!

My wife and I spent a Saturday night here on a trip to London. The welcome when we arrived was very friendly and helpful, especially as an ambulance was blocking the entrance to the car
park!

The hotel is about 5 minutes from the M4 and a 2 minute walk from the tube station so is in an excellent position. Our room was small but comforatable with en-suite facilitites, tea and coffee making facilities and TV but no phone. In the morning the breakfast room was packed so I can't comment on the continental breakfast but it looked very adequate.

Cleanliness was good although TV's Hotel Inspector might find a few areas for improvement.
MALE GUESTS BEWARE - we were in room 20 and the lid of the toilet seat refused to stay up!

If you want 5* facilities this isn't the place for you but if you just want somewhere comfortable to stay in a very handy location and very reasonably priced (£65 for the 2 of us) then I would strongly suggest you consider this hotel. We would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Be realistic. Don't expect 5* facilities in a budget hotel.
