Very good coocked Breckfast and very polite receptionists
The hotel clerks and staff. Very friendly and wanting to help.
We wanted to pay cash and not use the debit card we had used to book the hotel. This meant we had to pay a deposit of £50 for whatever reasons. It was our first night of our holiday so we had enough. Just made us a little uncomfortable and we felt we hadn't been warned this may happen, in advance. As it is, we were given a receipt and we collected the money in the morning. No one felt the need to check the room before we left which was a disappointment in an odd way as we assumed it was a deposit to make sure we didn't trash the room. Just made it seem like an uneccesary bit of red tape in the end. I would reccommend this hotel but tell others in advance about the cash side of things.
We had booked a double studio but there was a mix up so we ended up getting a family room with the same price which worked out perfect for us since even the hotel rooms have fridge, microway and plates and stuff in them.
No complaints. The only improvement that I'd want is to be able to put a sign on the door whether you want housekeeping or not. But i also realise that if someone is looking for really high quality from their hotel maybe Hillingdon Prince doesn't really deliver. The curtains on the window were a bit torn and the bathroom wasn't that nice but if you don't mind that everything's not perfect than Hillingdon Prince is a really good place to stay in.
Nice location, easy walk to main shopping centre. Free wi-fi, room small but reasonably comfortable for the price.
The kitchenette was poorly equipped, no microwave, toaster, frying pan or kitchen utensils on my arrival - I even had to ask for forks and tumblers. A few things were supplied on request, but not all, which was unacceptable for a 6 night stay.
Compact room, well appointed room with kitchenette, quiet area, plenty of parking, 10 minute brisk walk to town. I'd stay here again.
Bathroom dated, loo is difficult to sit on as its too close to the bath.
It was really fitted with my budget and very near to the place/friends I visited.
At £40 self-catering with use of gym seemed good value. Microwave, two-ring hob and fridge all OK.
In need of refurb. Main curtain hanging loose. Carpet v worn/stained. Cables trailing across floor. Shower curtain supported by wooden curtain pole - which fell just missing my head. Shower valve faulty - most water out of tap leaving dribble from shower.
It is a good place and very conveniently located; well connected to the city centre by frequent bus services. The room was comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly.
The accommodation was of teh kind of aparthotel and it is understandable that rooms were not serviced daily. But service on alternate days would have been usful.
Made to feel like a criminal because I was paying with cash rather than credit card.
This is the second time I've stayed at the Aparthotel Hillingdon Prince, if you want a hotel that is close to the shopping centre and has it's own free car park this is an ideal choice. The hotel is very good value and even has it's own gym. Excellent value for money.
Great relaxed atmosphere friendly and made me feel at home, comfortable lounge area very homely. Kitchenette ideal for simple cooking not seen this anywhere else. Felt very at home ideal if you are on a longer stay to reading
Service was not good at all, the photos posted in web site was not the same as in reality,
I liked the fact that there was a facility to self cater in room if required and it was extremly safe and comfortable
quite; parking space.
I feel that the hotel needs the following: new carpet and some painting
the staff were wonderful and the room was nice and roomy.
not having a fan for the hot days was a bummer, and the bed was a little hard but other than those two things, i really enjoyed it.
