This is the second time we have stayed here. It is so convenient to the Motorway into London. This time we were allocated a room on the First floor which was a disappointment as there is no elevator. Also, the hotel was heavily booked and we were not able to have dinner in the Dining Room. But the staff were very friendly and did what they could to make us feel welcome. The entrance is not easy to find - we had to go round the Roundabout three times before we found it. But the comfort and convenience is well worth it, and we will certainly return.

Good value for money.

This hotel was booked along with a conference room for staff training, the hotel is well positioned for access from main motorways.
However this turned out to be a bad point my room was at the back of the hotel facing the motorway. Car noise was constant from 3:30am so not much sleep was had.
Hotel in general is very good, breakfast is well worth the money, but did not try any other meals.

The first night was brilliant,the staff were fantastic,couldnt have been more helpful.
The second and third night were not as good,the second night the waitress barmaid,made us feel we were a nuisence, because we wanted to eat in the resteraunt and not the bar,mainly because we were the only couple in that night for dinner.We cant say she was rude,she wasnt,but she gave the impression we were in her way.The saving grace on the third night, was the waiter ,who took the young girls place, he was attentive, efficient, and a credit to your hotel,I cant remember his name but he was a local lad,my only regret is that I forgot to leave him a tip.Of course the waitress from the night before, was still on duty in the bar so we went straight back to our room after dinner.
Also they tried to overcharge us on leaving, but this was sorted uot satisfactoily before we left.We will probably be back just dont know when yet.

Overall, the quality and comfort of the room was very good. The bed was comfortable, there was a suitable area for working, with good natural lighting and satisfactory artificial light in the evening.
The bathroom was in good condition and clean, with sufficient towels and amenities.
There was unfortunately a family with young children staying in the room adjacent (which had an adjoining door) and sound travelled easily through the walls.
The cost for wi-fi/internet services and for film rental online was excessive.

Reception was busy but very short wait, we had a upstairs room, clean & fully serviced.
We purchased Breakfast next morning, they were busy & could do with a couple more staff to ensure people are seated & tables are cleared.
The food was adequate, although the scrambled egg was terrible, reconstituted egg I would think, for the price charged for breakfast this is not really acceptable.
Overall a pleasant stay, but please sort out the scrambled egg !

February 4th 2012 - We had arrived at Heathrow following a delayed flight from Tenerife via Madrid. We knew that the weather in the UK was not going to be very good, and during the flight the flight crew were keeping us informed. Snow was already falling at Heathrow, and was threatening to get worse from the north and west (which it certainly did). We were going to try to get home in our Smart Fourtwo, which in the conditions, took the 'Meet and Greet' company about an hour to get to us at the terminal.
I managed to drive out of the Heathrow environs, and we started our journey north on the M25, heading for the M40, but as soon as we crossed the M4 it was soon obvious that we were not going to get home! This is where the High Wycombe hotel came to our rescue. (Thank goodness for smartphones!!)
My wife found the hotel phone number, and rang, mentioning that I am a Priority Club member, and we were lucky enough to secure the last available room. It seemed the world and his wife wanted to stay that night. We slid and slithered the 20-odd miles to the hotel, checked into a super room, large, warm and welcoming. Oh, I forgot to mention, our luggage had failed to make it to Heathrow so we had just the clothes we were wearing, and little in the way of toiletries. The hotel helped us with those too!
That night, the staff worked tirelessly - cold food only, since the kitchens had closed for the night by the time we arrived. The 'Dunkirk' spirit pervaded the entire establishment, with travellers, like us, unable to reach their ultimate destination, being grateful for a seat in the lounge for the night, which under the extreme circumstances the night staff allowed them to do. Where the reception staff managed to find enough food for everyone needing some, I couldn't say, but having had a great night's sleep, my wife and I were AMAZED that the morning shift (chefs, waiting staff, room cleaners) had all turned up, some walking some miles through fairly deep snow, so that we, the punters could get a decent breakfast.
The hotel was a real port in a storm that night
