Hillingdon Prince Hotel

Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. The rooms were comfortable enough for us. The continental breakfast provided plenty for our family and was of good quality. We also had the cooked breakfast once and it was equally good. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It was also nice to have wifi that worked well. This is important to international travelers since our phone data doesn't work outside our home country. Thanks!

Booked the hotel 2 hours before checking in and there were no problems with check in. Paid £30 for 2 of us to stay the night, for a last minute hotel in Reading I thought this was very reasonable! Hotel was clean and tidy. Rooms and bathrooms of more than adequate size. Didn't take advantage of the gym or breakfast facilities. I came back very late that evening and there was a night guard on watch so no need to worry about break ins! Lift a bit dodgy at times but was able to use stairs no problems. Decor a little tired but really not fussed as was exceptionally clean and considering the price we paid could have no complaints! (Room 305) Overall a very pleasant hotel, very reasonable, and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for one night. Room was clean and warm. The staff were very friendly however they were not very knowledgeable about the bus times or shops in the area which was annoying. Our room was different to the pictures on the website having said that I would stay here again as the price is so reasonable (we paid £30 for a friday night)

Stayed here for one night whilst my partner had to work in Reading. Our room was lovely and clean with great facilities in our room. the crockery and cutlery came in very handy for our indian takeaway!! The gym facilities were also great and came in very handy for my half marathon training. The continental buffet breakfast was delicious also. Staff were very friendly. Will definately stay here again.

Stayed on the 2nd February for one night. Just needed somewhere to stay while we were helping my daughter move. After staying we have decided we will return when we intend to stay for a few days visiting my daughter.
I loved the idea of the fridge and microwave in the room. The rooms are very clean and tidy and an amazing powerful shower. We enjoyed a couple of hours in the bar and informed by staff that we could order takeaway. We were given plates and cutlery. So far all the staff have been friendly there have been possible negatives during our stay. thank you.
