Good room, good price
The hotel is located in Ealing, a suburb to the west. I stayed there during my visit for the Olympics, as it was one of few places with openings, at least at a good price.
The front door operates with a number code (if you've not checked in, you have to ring the bell, which could have been made a little clearer to me, I think, but perhaps I was being dense as I'd only just flown in). You keep your room key.
I stayed in a single, not en suite, overlooking the back garden. The room itself was small, as one would expect for a single room in the London area at a reasonable price :-), but clean and comfortable. Of course, when I arrived, it was quite hot out, and like most places in the UK, you have to depend on the window for air. The room has an electric kettle with quite a lot of tea and coffee provided, a sink, and a small flatscreen TV.
The shower and toilet facilities were the next rooms along the hall and were fine, although people seemed to be having trouble with the toilet flushing. The shower depends on a somewhat noisy pump system.
The hotel includes free wifi (including a secondary amplified signal that was definitely more reliable than the original installation) that worked just fine.
The staff seemed to be small, with probably many just there to handle breakfast for the day and such. They were all quite friendly and nice. The breakfast could be a little slow in coming, particularly when a lot of people were eating at once, but the food was good--eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, beans, tomatoes, and so on. Cereal, toast, and yogurt were supplied.
Unique Quality: I wouldn't say the hotel has unique qualities, but it's clean and comfortable at a good price, which isn't always easy to find in the London area.
A heads up: The hotel seems to have its own cat, a fluffy black and white one, that spends some time in the back garden. On two nights, when I came into my room, the cat jumped through the window and started getting friendly with me. I like cats and have my own, but I threw him out on both occasions (into the hall). In the off-season, this would be less of an issue because one would most likely keep the window closed, but in the summer, allowing in a breeze means possibly allowing in a cat. If you like cats, you can let him stay or toss him, but if you don't like cats or are allergic, this hotel might not be a good idea. Of course, I don't know if he can get in all the rooms.
Directions: When you come out of the tube station, go to the left and cross at the light. Go to the left again, and you'll come upon Windsor Road. Walk down it until you reach Grange Road and go to the right. The hotel's halfway down.
