Aside from price, which was good considering what it costs to stay in a hotel in London, the Grange Lodge was not a fabulous stay for us. Amber greeted us on our first day and she was super nice. When we got to our room, it wasn't exactly how the pictures portray it to be...it's quite budget, but not a problem. The problem was the cat urine smell of our bathroom. It was awful. There was mould on the shower tiles, the fan was quite loud and the toilet ran forever (we were in Room #10). I was happy to have our own bathroom but there was a definite price to pay for that. After our first night, we seriously contemplated going elsewhere. The next morning at breakfast, which was your standard English fare, we were greeted by a very unfriendly, surly woman. I don't know what her name was but she didn't even say "good morning"; it was "what would you like?" There wasn't a menu at our table so we didn't know what our options were. Well, that seemed to annoy her greatly so she handed us a menu from the next table. Fine. The breakfast wasn't very tasty. She brought out the toast about 5-10 min before our actual breakfast came so it was cold by the time we got our main course. Another morning I had asked if they had peanut butter to which she said no but that she would check. She never bothered to check. By the 3rd morning, I didn't even go down for breakfast b/c I couldn't handle her unfriendly nature nor the actual taste of the breakfast. Someone else should be serving the guests who actually has a personality. Needless to say we stayed the full 3 nights we booked in for, not b/c we liked the place but b/c it was too much of a hassle to find another hotel & b/c it was close enough to the metro station (Ealing Broadway) that we couldn't be bothered to move. Like I said, for the price I imagine it was worth it but they need to deal with the bathroom smell and that wretched woman who does the serving in the morning. Improve those 2 things and this place is worth the stay for the cost :-)
