“Nice little hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

While I didnt stay in this hotel, I was here for a training course in one of their conference rooms every day for two weeks.

This 'boutique' hotel is a welcome change from the chain hotels, with a nice light atmosphere, decent decoration, and very helpful staff.

The training rooms were basic, and the tables in great need of replacement - and the AC also in some need of attention as it was either boiling hot, or freezing cold - however i dont think this was at all the reflection of the rest of the hotel which looked in great condition.

We ate in the hotel restaurant a couple of times, and the food really was fantastic and couldnt be faulted.

The location of the hotel is in a really quiet area amongst houses in Stanwell yet less than 10 minutes from any of the Heathrow terminals.

Overall I would probably recommend this hotel.

Thank you so much for using Tripadvisor to give us your feedback regarding your visit to The Stanwell Hotel. I am delighted to note that you enjoyed our restaurant and the food that we prepare from scratch with fresh ingredients onsite!

We are continuously investing in the hotel so we should have new conference tables within the next few months. Hopefully you will return to the hotel in the very near future!

The perfect place to stay in comfort with good service and a good sleep. As said, the breakfast is stunning, fresh. Take the full English breakfast. It's included if you selected the option of 10 pounds more for the night. One of the best in recent years!!!

Take their recommendation for the transfer service: reliability! It is a bit off the town center but therefor close to the airport at a reasonable price for a hotel in London.

Room Tip: If you have a large suitcase don't go for the rooms behind the patio on the ground floor. They h...

Had to stay here when snow hit Heathrow. Very cute for the price. Staff was very accommodating. Food was very good too (they have a restaurant and bar). You could do a fixed price meal for 20 (2 courses) or 25 (3 courses) pounds.

Be careful getting to the hotel - the black cabs at Heathrow will charge an exorbitant amount to get your there (35 pounds). However gettting back is only a 12 pound taxi that you can actually charge to the hotel if need be.

Attended a charity fund raising dinner at the hotel's restaurant - very good. Juna & Karol were attentive and pleasant, the food was very good and the surroundings modern, clean and friendly. What a difference to the old hotel !! I shall be organising a few fund raisers myself in the next few months and look forward to some more good evenings. Bar prices were on the high side but understandable since the food was very well priced. Wine prices were OK with the meal though, 15 - 16 GB pounds a bottle, all the staff were friendly & attentive and made the evening a success. Very enjoyable.

A late booking did not mean any laspe of quality. Price on par with Travelodge, but so much nicer and the delicious breakfast thrown in. Friendly, basic but clean Nice surroundings and friendly staff. Definately good value for money...and lovely fluffy towels. I would definately return.
