The location of the hotel is OK. A little further from the centre of Ealing that I imagined but only a brisk 20 minute walk, or a quick ride on one of the frequent buses to Ealing Broadway.
Overall the rooms are pretty well appointed, and it looked like the place has been reasonably recently refurbished. The room I stayed in was very spacious, with a seperate kitchen and bathroom. My room was at the back of the building, and overlooked the car park and an adjacent van yard, which was a little noisy in the early hours with vans coming and going.
My main problems were with the bed and the bathroom though. The bed was very uncomfortable - a double bed size, but with a split in the middle of matress which it wasn't possible to avoid.
Worst of all there was absoutely no hot or even warm water in the morning for a bath or shower. I had to have a freezing cold shower, and then boil some water for a shave - at least that's where the kitchen came in useful I guess...! Hot water is a pretty basic requirement for a hotel, and from the other reviews I've since read of here it doesn't seem like I'm the first guest with this problem.
One thing to note, the front desk will ask you for a £50 security deposit when you check in, and if you don't have cash, they may take 10 days to refurd this to your card. I hadn't noticed this from the website I made the booking on, but would have made sure to bring the cash otherwise. less
