drinks at bar were a bit expensive
It was a lovely weekend break. The only very minor issue we had was that the tv remote control didn't work but apart from that, everything was perfect No bad points
Grounds and location Checkout was slow on the Saturday morning with only 1 receptionist on duty and queues were forming; Also the Duty manager walked past twice and did not recognise there was a problem with people queueing
The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. More choice of seating for eating my bar meal would have been nice. The hot drinks made in my room tasted awful - the kettle?
A very grand hotel but had a very cost feel. We will definitely be going back
Very well situated not too far from London the food was not particularly fantastic
convenience, pleasant room room was very hot, bathroom fan noisy
friendly helpful staff. Great cooked breakfast in very nice dining room
nothing in particular nothing in particular
Good location & value for money Very lengthy queue at the checkout - took some 30 minutes!
Friendly staff Room was smallish, and cobwebs on ceiling
The location was nice. I only had one day free and rather do "the usual" and cram into London City, I enjoyed an extended walk around the public paths, The Thames, the locks and the neighborhood. Very nice. The hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable with very attentive and helpful staff. Although i enjoyed the quiet of the top floor, it was quite warm - even in early Autumn - and the windows barely let in any fresh air. A fan was in the room, but it just moved around the stale air and wasn't helpful in bringing in the fresh. And, the shower curtains did their job, but had the effect of migrating to the bather wrapping them as if they were a sausage in a Tessco meat counter. Perhaps some upgraded curtains with weights or magments. Both small elements in contrast to the enjoyment of my stay.
We only had an over night stay at a local family wedding, however the room was very nice and the breakfast very nice the staff were very curteous, something that lacks greatly in many hotels No
Value for money No light bulb in the bedside table lamp, but I could not be bothered to complain as only there the one night.
it was fairly quiet apart from air traffis which is not so bad. as above and only one bedside cabinet, I had to use the chair.
ideal location for family and short tripsinto London. Very nice location both forlocal shops and the river. Also very reasonable price on the weekends for B&B. The reservation that I madeon line was not recieved by the Ship Hotel so they didnot know that we were comming.
Reasonably priced, comfortable, very close to Heathrow No complaints, would stay again.
The concierge staff were very helpful and friendly,but something need to be done for the check in and check out front liners. We checked in on 25 \nov 2010, arriving about 10 pm plus from Paris enroute to scotland, the check I staff was not very friendly. We checkd out early morning on 26 nov 2010, the check out staff was also not friendly. A simple eye contact would have been helpful for the hotel management.
Close to the airport. Elegant in its own way. The rooms are a bit small.
close to the airport for our departure home the next day cost means to make our own coffee and tea mini refrigerator nice sized bathroom had to walk along way down a hallway to access an elevator to the 2nd floor and then had to walk back down another long hallway there was urine in the toilet in our "clean" hotel room and the TV was all ready on - it left us wondering if our room had really been cleaned no extra pillows or blankets
the strict minimum!! 14 GBP for wifi
Close to the airport The rooms was far too hot.
Nothing decor very tired, noisy
Relatively clean I chose the hotel because of its supposedly superior pool and fitness room, but they closed right after I arrived. Why would an airport hotel close its facilities at night?
Slick check in, very clean and comfortable
Close to the international airport with easy access to cheap shuttle bus service. Rooms were clean and heating/cooling easily adjusted. Staff were friendly and good with children. A good menu for kids. Rooms are very small, even for overnight stay. There is no lift so luggage must be carried up two flights of stairs which is back breaking if your traveling overseas with a large load. They claim to be 4 star which is a bit of a joke... More like 2 1/2 to 3 mainly due to the fact it is dated (looking worn), lack of lifts to upper levels and lacking 4 star facilities. WiFi was a bit dear. Most places in this pricerange where we stayed offered free WiFi.
The food was great, and the service terrific too. Doors a bit scratched up.
First off I couldn't book the room through the hotel. I was forced to book with third party online. My bathroom had flooded when I had taken a shower, due to the shower threshold. I had upgraded my room simply just looking for a king bed. The only room available was a sweet which had cost me 275.00 pounds. They only compensated me 50 pounds for a soak and wet bathroom that I had to mop up with all the towels in the room.
More for convenience,as I have to catch early flight. Proximity to the tube is the other plus points. none
It was just what we needed after a long flight, clean, spacious, modern and comfortable.
The Staff were friendly and very helpful. Food is great at reasonable prices, everything looks smart and well organised. it is right next to the tube station which was convenient. The rates are low and you get much more than you expected for this sort of price. the breakfast was great and plenty of choice. Basically I would use this hotel again if I am in the area – very pleasant stay.
The bed was inviting and clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was lovely! I didn't have a computer with me so was grateful I could come in free of charge to write an email. There was nothing I didn't like.
Brand new, lovely hotel and a superb Garden Inn. Comfortable and crispy clean. Nice staff at the bar and check in. Easy access from Hatton Cross Tube stop. Read a review that transportation was bad and have to agree. Expensive at GBP 4:50 each. Worse yet was the SURLY, RUDE, UNHELPFUL CRETIN that drove the bus. Awful.
location for airport
Location The hotel was very noisy and the housekeeping staff kept slamming doors keeping us up. In addition we asked a server about the menu and she rudely told us to ask someone else and walked off.
friendly staff, convenient location
Checkin was quick. Food at the bar was good (see also what I did not like) I picked the hotel because of the name, I stayed in excellent Jury's Inss before, also because it was (said to be) close to the underground & heathrow, Only at the exit there was no indication where the hotel was located, and the hotel was not visible. So I had to ask around, before finding the hotel. It was a bit farther away than described. At check-in they told me the restaurant would be open until 22h30, and gave me a key-card for my room that did not work. When coming back down to the restaurant I was told it closed early, so I had to go to the (overflowing) bar, and had to wait to get a seat. My room was close the the elevators, and poorly insulated, and I heard the elevators moving up and down,and stopping at my floor all night.
The convenient possision, the room was very quiet, no airport noice. The bar area not very acceptable for eating a light meal
My wife needed to see a GP and they quickly called one out for us. They were very helpful.
Very convenient, great location to airport
Close to airport, clean and upgraded rooms. Dinner was very good and the breakfast buffet was great.
Location Service in the restaurant was very efficient and friendly We were not informed that the hotel is going through a TOTAL renovation. We were initially placed in a recently finished room. After a real ordeal to get there, we found out that our room reeked of chemicals (gave us a headache within 5 minutes and watery eyes), still had some construction debris and the bathroom door handle was not installed. Had to carry all our luggage back and had to be moved to a different room.
Big lounge, helpful front desk service. Discounted pricing relative to other hotels in the area. Outside decor and current renovations give very poor first impressions. Room was typ Marriott-type accommodations. I'd recommend spending the extra $10+ to stay elsewhere if possible, but would consider again at same price range when renovations are complete.
Staff attention to detail, quality of room and location
Proximity to airport Ability to earn Marriott points The hotel was old and in desperate need of an update.
Location State of repair/decor. Food---terrible !!! Seemed cheap for a Marriott --now understand why.
What a great location. As a weary traveler it's nice when everything goes smoothly. Staff was very accommodating .
Location This hotel is old and not very clean. I am surprised that Marriott has let this hotel go this far in dis-repair. Not worth 200 USD a night.
Room is Comfortable and modern. Lobby and pub/bar very spacious and comfortable. Endless corridors and small rooms for such a huge hotel.
Comfortable room and fast internet and ease of taking the public bus system 5 minutes to the terminal cannot be beat. Hair in the bathroom and in the tea cup suggested it did not get cleaned well, and about a 45" wait to get checked in made the stay less than ideal. Both are probably one-off issues though based upon reviews available.
Location, lounge 1.the hotel could not find my kayak reservation so I am Not sure that I paid the kayak rate, in fact there is a good chance but I was charged twice and I'll have to find some way to reconcile this. For some reason the kayak reservations were not acceptable for their confirmation numbering system, the staff acted like they never seen a kayak reservation. 2.none of the hotel had internet access whatsoever it was down all night. Only one staff was manning the concierge desk and with the internet down the line was very long, yet it seems like the staff didn't put 2&2 together....perhaps you should increase the number of people at the concierge desk when the internet is down. At times the concierge would just just disappear I think probably hoping people would just disappear as well. Myself and another guest helped ourselves to the concierge desk computer print out our boarding passes for flights. 3. the entire hotel smelled like smoke despite the non smoking room. 4. the television didn't work in the hotel room and looked quite dated even at the kayak rated this hotel is not worth the money
The staff in reception is really rough, especially some guy from indian or middle east, ask the staff to let me join the novotel club for 3 times, but he did not anything and lie to me.
Extremely polite and service-oriented staff. Convenient location. Good value. Flexibility in accomodating a family of four in one room, a rarity in Europe.
Good service and a decent room. Free wifi. Overall, I was there for 2 days before I left England so it served its purpose. Check in was supposed to be at 2 pm. I got there around 3:30 and still had to wait about 15 minutes before getting my key.
The staff were polite, helpful, and unobtrusive. Also they were well turned out. The evening meal could have been better, however the full breakfast was excellent
Location adjacent to M4 -good for connection to London but tube connection better than bus routes. High taxi fares in the locality because of this High taxi fares-charged £28 for 7 mile trip.
It was totally fine for an overnight stay at an airport hotel. The pull out couch was actually more comfortable than the beds themselves. The air-con did not work in our room and they gave us a small fan to rectify the situation. The front desk staff was also very helpful on the phone, but never followed through with the requests we made.
Comfortable, clean hotel. No real complaint about the hotel itself but it could be better signposted from heathrow/M4 and the junction
The staff were very good. Public areas ofthe hotel a bit tatty but the rooms excelent.
Convenient for our touring itinery.
The food at the restaurant was excellent - a fantastic meal.
clean, modern and comfortable
Location of hotel, which allowed quiet ambient atmosphere during the short stay
This is boutique quality hotel with new amenities, at an amazingly low price. They do this, by offering small, but very nice, rooms with single beds. Its about a 10-12 min walk from the Hounslow East Metro station (4 stops from Heathrow), which isn't actually that bad. Fare is 1.5£, taxi is 20£ or so. (Turn right when you exit Hounslow East.)
The assistance of your staff.Did not like being charged £9.00 for taxi to Terminal one as I thought £4.00 was figure mentioned by your staff.Patrick Madden.
Had to wait for check in, had no record of room with breakfast booked over the internet but found booking was in first name. good job I printer copy to show.
Plenty of facilities; restaurants, gym, spa and shop. However we chose the hotel for its locationa nd the shuttle service. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Thought the internet was poorly priced, i.e. too expensive.
Early check in after a long haul flight was not possible
Clezan, mostly quite quiet, ideally located for Heathrow / m25 For the second time in succession it took nearly an hour to check in as the Active Hotels Booking had not been received by the hotel. Required phonce calls to Active Hotels to resolve. Not what you need at 7pm at night after a long flight etc etc.
Very nice hotel, and served my purpose well as an overnight stay to be close to Heathrow for an early morning flight back to the States.Nice and quiet, even though it is so close to Heathrow. Don't know who's fault, but when I arrived, hotel had no record of my reservation. a little scarey, as I was being dropped off by my parents, after a 5 hour drive from South Wales, before my flight the next day, back to the us. After probably 15 minutes,the receptionist made a new reservation,and all was well. The other thing that was not good, was that I did not get my 6am wake up call, which could've made for a bad situation, as I was catching a plane! Also, it was not easy to get to off the M4...got lost and ended up on the m25!!
The room was clean and spacious. Check in staff was unwelcoming. Almost was given a smoking room until I complained. Breakfast was expensive and did not live up to the price. The location is far away from the airport and suited to business travelers. Will not book a room at this hotel again.
It was equiped with a very nice staff no breakfast deal in a quite handsome amount of money
Proximity to Heathrow airport. Quiet. Brilliant breakfast.
We requested non-smoking and breakfast, but it didn't arrange. We waited many time for check-in and check-out.
Hotel staff generally good. Room ok, but sink drain a bit slow! Hotel could not find my booking on the system at all - I.E. no record of the Active Hotels booking. So check-in took nearly 20 minutes whilst we sorted out a new booking.
very comfortable room, high standards, great service. Good facilities.
Relaxed surroundings The hotel claims, in the facilities information, to have a business centre that provides the use of a computer and suggests that guests do not bring their laptop but they do not have this facility.
Our room was not told that a dinner jacket was needed for dinner
Very quiet and room was comfortable whilst being very close to the motorway network and Heathrow. The room very very warm despite windows being left open, also along way from breakfast restaurant.
We felt comfortable, valued as guests and the service and facilities were very good. In the main restaurant, on my birthday I was brought a special plate with champagne, which was a lovely touch. The information in our room said the main restaurant was shut on Sundays so we went to a place called the brasserie, whose sign said they were open until 8pm on that night, Unfortunately they said they were closing early at 7pm (it was 6.45) as they were short staffed and the said the main restaurant was in fact open, but fully booked. They did actually serve us in the end as we just wanted a quick light meal, so all was well, if a little annoying and confusing.
Wonderful location. Reasonable range of meals at the Bar XIX and reasonably priced. Staff very friendly and excellent breakfast. The underfloor heating takes hours to react when you turn it up or down. Whole TV service crashed during the evening and didn't get fixed by the next morning.
bedroom was awesome / facilities good / staff effecient no
Quality and golf facilities Golf course was very busy
Very quiet area - Hotel room very nice in comparison to the normal UK Standard
Excellent restaurant. Have used other facilities here in the past but not this trip. Mostly a golf/tennis country club, so busy every day with members It was busy with meetings when we were there and we booked late, so we were in one of the older accommodation units that are getting a bit tired. The newer units are nicer, the old ones need refreshing
being woken up by kids playing the pool early. voices echo and straight through into the room
excellent facilities. main restaurant closed. drink and mini bar prices too high
Easy to find, very good parking deal and helpful and very efficient staff. Room very quiet considering its proximity to Heathrow.
The bed was very comfortable and the room in general was very spacious. Staff were courteous and professional and the choice at breakfast was impressive. The corridors are a bit like a 'rabbit warren' and difficult to locate room.Television required better instructions on simply being able to watch basic channels (button 1 didn't give you BBC1 etc).
The size of the room and the Hotel's location poor service at the restaurants
the room very comfortable....near airport. dining a little pricey..but breakfast buffet very good
First class all the way Limited menu selectin in the sports bar
Hotel was of poor standard and looked nothing like it did on the website. the room was dirty and the food far to expensive. Hotel staff had very poor understanding of English or they just didnt want to know. the way out
nice room, very comfortable. cheerful and friendly staff. Willing to help. Quite nice swimming pool. Starbucks in the hotel My room was beside a stairwell leading to the carpark and it was left open often. shame the starbucks wasn't 24h
Had an unexpected layover at LHR. Hotel was convenient to airport. Kind staff, was upgraded to a Club floor room. Room was nice, clean, and comfy.
Relaxed atmosphere, good food and efficient staff. The excellent poolside atrium closed at 10 p.m. -- a pity because it was a very pleasant place to sit and relax after dinner.
the room and bathroom was spacious and well decorated. the bed was comfortable and the curtains kept all the light out. the room was clean on first sight but after we found stains of old blood on the sheets and the kettle was dirty inside
Thought the rooms were good value - like the touches with the slippers and dressing gowns. Fortuntely for me the weighing scales did not work !!....Food was good too.
Extremely friendly and helful staff,no problems at all and the whole night went very smoothly
The location was ideal for our needs, being 5 mins from our destination. We were very pleased wiith the staff and our room, and realise that being in the centre of a large town makes parking difficult, but the reason for booking the room was because we required an overnight stay and felt that £15 was excessive (we in fact parked next door but have never before had to pay extra for parking) and £16 each was over the top for breakfast (usually inclluded where we've stayed, or at most £10). We are pensioners and were attending a funeral and much as we would have liked to have parked with you and had breakfast before departing, we really couldn't afford it.
Close to the airport, quiet, well cooked breakfast, excellent Italian restaurant far too expensive for a transit hotel, no warmth, bereft of human kindness in architecture and facilities, matress well worn, so poor nights sleep before travelling, need a second mortgage to buy food and especially drink
The Execuitve Lounge was very small and uncomfortable and certainly not worth paying for an upgrade to get use of it.
The location, the services. And we really like the casual coziness of the Barhemia lounge and cafe. We always enjoy relaxing there, watching tv with food and drinks.
Convenient to airport. Shuttle bus is GBP 8 per person. If 2 people that's GBP 16. Taxi is GBP 18 - go by taxi! Hotel has a pretty good restaurant. Room upgrade is not worth it - rooms are the same as regular (having stayed before in many rooms here). Good gym and pool. Only 1 computer station in the exec lounge. Should have at least 2. Lots of times had to wait >30 minutes.
I thought the reception into the hotel was excellent, the staff were very helpful and polite. The room was well appointed, comfortable and very clean.
We only had a overnight stay in the heathrow Marriott so none of the above catagories apply, Nevertheless our short stay was very comfortable, and I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel
Family room was offered hence we could stay in the one room as a family. Price of the restaurant
Overnight stay at Heathrow, prior ot flight
Cleanliness of room N/A
The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was quiet despite being located across the street from the hotel. n/a
Spa and pool facilities were excellent. Good breakfast. Nice location. We booked two executive rooms. One was very nice but the other was disappointing and in need of a makeover.
Very friendly staff They did not give me the executive double room that I booed. Finally they charged me less as a normal double room
the beautiful location, the general ambiance of the hotel and the lovely breakast, also the convenience of easy parking the room was rather small and dark
Proximity to Ascot races The size of the bedroom.. very small for 2 people. Also the bathroom did not have a bath.
Friendly, attentive staff, who had local knowledge.A welcoming bar, with a good range of quality bar meals to support the restaurant.
staff and decor and spa very noisy.
Peaceful surroundings, good old fashioned service
Wow it was a fantastic hotel and such value.
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. It is out of the way but castle can be easly reached by car. We like to walk so walked to castle which took about two hours.Breakfast was nice.
The hotel staff is very friendly, helpfull and professional. The Lock restaurant is excellent: we had a very good dinner.
Breakfast excellent Room was poorly soundproofed to corridor and noisy inside - a/c or pipework
Hotel staff were friendly also the breakfast and evening buffet vwas excellent none
Lovely service, great food, nice location to the river Make sure you get the right room. Our first room was very are very small and bed wasn't too good but the second room was lovely
Lovely setting, very attentive staff, Excellent breakfast Rooms rather small.
Room and ameneties Wanted to extend my stay but hotel fully booked
