I have to admit I was rather concerned about staying at this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but my experience was a pleasant one.
First of all it is a budget hotel, so don't expect luxury.
Second it is close to heathrow so expect some noise!
Feltham is not the 'hell hole' it is made out to be in some of the reviews. We felt perfcetly happy to walk about with a large group of children in the evening, and the people we came into contact with (at the nearby Macdonalds etc) were extremly nice and very helpful.
Likewise staff at the hotel. Whilst they didn't go out of thier way, they handled our query's and requests promptly and were always polite.
Rooms were basic, but clean and had everything we needed for a short stay (we were there 2 nights). Some of the beds were rather lumpy (we had about 16 rooms for our group, with 2/3 or 4 beds per room - every combination possible really) and my room in particular smelled very strongly of smoke which was rather annoying, but apart from that the rooms were big enough for our needs and comfortable.
We only ate in the restaurant for breakfast, and whilst we had to wait a little while to be seated (as our group was large) the restaurant staff worked hard to ensure we didn't have to wait too long. The breakfast was decent enough with a good choice and hot items were replenished on a regular basis.
I don't feel the hotel deserves some of the negative reviews based on my personal experience, and as usual you get what you pay for.
We stayed at this hotel as we were going to Legoland, and the location was ideal for this.
To summarise, this is a good hotel for the price.
