I felt compelled to suggest and write this review after our stay at the hotel. Whilst in London visiting a few rehoming centres through our charity we decided to make a stay of it and visit some of the sights of the Big City.
We didn't want to spend a great deal and saw the Heathrow Inn was close to transport but also fairly close to Wembley ideal for the late night concert we had booked. It also had a free car park which was our only requirement for the week!
The reviews on the booking sites were dreadful and the more we read the more we dreaded our stay. We arrived late but the proprietors were so helpful. They showed us to our rooms, helped us with our bags and served us an ice cold cider...perfect after a long journey!
The hotel was dated by suitable and at £30 per room per night we were not complaining. We had a shared facilities room with a continental breakfast. The rooms were airy, bright and clean with a sink provided. We had tea and coffee facilities and fresh bedding daily. The toilets down the corridor were clean, tidy and fresh. The bathroom/shower room was also kept clean. Every room had fresh towels and linen daily.
The hotel was quite noisy but this was mainly due to the selfish members who slammed doors and stamped along the hallway. The beds were comfy although an extra pillow would have been nice.
The breakfast although basic was very nice, the evening meals (not included) were stunningly wonderful - with very large portions. We had a gorgeous steak with vegetables and potatoes and it was so cheap at £6.45 per person.
The owners were very helpful with travel arrangements and advice and more than happy to assist. The hotel was a short 10 minute walk from the station and the bus stops right outside. The town was nice enough although very different to where we live, a little intimidating at times but definitely an experience. The only gripe we had was the late night concert we arrived 10 minutes before the curfew (1am) and cpuldn't get in. 45 minutes of ringing the doorbell, telephone number and banging on the door we finally got in, although were close to sleeping in our car!
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would return. Our 1 week stay went too fast and we cannot wait to go back next year.
