We booked 2 nights at this hotel and chose it due to it proximity to a tube station and Wembley. We couldn't have got much closer to North Ealing tube station and it was a 2 min walk round the corner the only downside was that it took 30 to get to central London for the rest of the trip.
For Wembley it was great on the way as there was regular buses right opposite the hotel and took us directly to the arena. Allow plenty of time as the traffic is slow and took us 45 mins to get there. On the way back no buses arrived at all and we struggled to get a taxi. The bus service was supposed to be a 24 hour service but we waiting a long time and not one showed. We paid £25 for a taxi back.
Our room was 002 which was on the ground floor and an adapted room. The noise from the street wasn't too noticeable however we had more noise from Reception as our room was right next door. I would suggest a garden facing room or one away from Reception. You can tell the have tried to reduce the sound delivery as it had two doors to the room - a heavy duty fire door and an additional internal door.
The room was clean, modern and had all necessary requirement with the exception of milk. We couldn't have a hot drink! There was complimentary bottles of water. The bathroom was spacious however a little dark. The lighting could be a lot better. The beds and pillows were comfy and the rooms were made up whilst we were out. The cupboard space was good and could hang up all our things and put the suitcases in the cupboard which kept the room clear.
As it isn't a central hotel it was a very quiet and relaxing hotel but lacked a buzz that I like. There was very little around therefore you needed to be more central for busy restaurants and bars.
The staff were great and friendly and helpful.
Good little hotel but just not busy enough for me.
