Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Oxcheetah Good location with poor service
Disappointed with the service here if I am honest.
Ridiculous car parking set up and no help where to park of theirs is full (not difficult it only seems to hold 10 cars!!).
Evening service is awful, kept waiting for service at the bar ages and then no apology, no smile and no please or thank you.
However, the worst of the lot was when I handed in an iphone left in the bar, and by coincidence I was checking out when a worried resident asked if one had been handed in. He was told NO without anyone even looking or checking!! Only when I interrupted did anything get done. I was told that there could not be a phone as it would have been in the handover - I had to get very assertive before I was 'believed'.
Brand damaging in my opinion.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by delvalman rubbish choice of breakfast
beds were comfortable and room was nice but choice of breakfast was really bad - only beans, scrambled egg and sausage (are we cowboys or campers !!!!!!) you could of course make your own toast!!! or enjoy a 'beaten up' croissant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by netty1952 poor customer service
You really need to sort your car parking out, and make your staff more supportive when it is full. Make arrangements with the bank next door to enable people to park up 8am in the morning or something similar. There is nothing worse than arriving somewhere late tired and not knowing the area, than to be told you can't park, and just go find somewhere on the street, this to a 61 year old women late at night in a strange place. Not very helpful.
Overall the customer service fromt he reception staff was very poor. To the point of telling an American young man, that they did not have his I phone, when I had handed it in the previous night, not impressed had to point out to the receptionist that this was the case, she then went to look for it. I sincerely hope he got it back.

The hotel is nice and clean, just at the back of the tube station, very convenient. The staff are very helpful, very considerate. I bought Pizzas from Domino. I asked to a female staff for forks and knives. She offered plates as well which surprised me, sorry I forgot to ask her name, but really grateful to her.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by yvonne17 Great check in and lots of information
We stayed one night and was very please with the hotel.
It was great value for money and only a few tube rides away from the heart of London.
The guy that check us in was very helpful and friendly, which started the stay with good vibes and we are in our sixties.
Was surprised at breakfast how full the hotel was, we did not hear any late noise.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EFulton785 Perfect location at great value
This was my first visit to London. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel. It is a one minute walk from the North Acton tube. Tesco, local eateries, and pub close by. The quality of the rooms was very good. Very slight noise from the nearby tube line - but not enough to prevent you sleeping or to awake you during the night. It is approx 25mins from Liverpool Street Station- 11 stops if i remember right. Would def return to this hotel again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jangra Excellent service and value for money
We continue to use this hotel whenever we visit London, and are treated very well by everyone on each occasion. For example, I had a problem with my direct debit for the Oyster card caused by a change of bank by the Credit Card company. Cristina had all the patience in the world and resolved the problem for me. You won't get such ready service in every hotel in my experience. It is in an excellent position for the tube and access to Central London. The standards are very high for an 'Express' rated hotel.

This hotel is a real credit to the Holiday Inn Chain. The staff were so friendly when I arrived. A real pleasure to see staff that were happy to be at work.
Even the manager, was there speaking to guests as they checked in.
The room was spotless and I really did have a pleasant nights sleep,
with easy access to transport.
Will certain stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by simon25 Modern, clean, affordable hotel
Enjoyable one night stay, upon arrival the hotel looked very presentable,clean & modern.
Shortage of parking, meant I could not get into carpark, was asked to park in car park entrance , but not on the secure side of the barrier??
Check in staff, very polite, night staff helpful.
Room clean, pillows were poor.Bathroom clean.
Found the manager in the morning quite abrupt when I mentioned about the parking charge, Thought it was unfair to pay full parking charge, when I didnt even get into the carpark?
Breakfast was ok, but disapointed with the hot choice, no bacon, fried eggs or tomatoes, just sausages,baked beans & tasteless scrambled egg. Saying that it was thrown in, so what can you say.
Overall much better than another nearby well known big chain hotel, I stayed at last year, so will probably stop again next year.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Angelaliu Location is great, but the others have a lot room to improve
We spent 7 nights in this hotel,
1. The location is great, very convenient to the subway, also
a TESCO EXPRESS just cross the street which is very helpful and the highlight for the hotel
2. Room is quite small, overall is neat, but housekeeping need to do the vacuum everyday which is a room to improve
3. The shower room is quite small and the spray is not strong, the water is kind of not enough
4. The free web is a hard job, you have to ask the voucher everyday and speed is quite slow
5.The breakfast is ok, but the staff (the lady maid,comes very early) made people feel uncomfortable.
6. Some staffs in front desk might not the London local staffs, they really need improve their English speaking
7. We did the prepaid in full for this hotel 2 weeks in advance, but the price was a lot of higher than normal pay after checking out. It made people so confused and had a kind of feeling of cheating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wires136 Overall Holiday Experience
We stayed at The London - Park Royal for a two night break,
it was an Excellent Location,next to the tube station,close to everything we wanted to visit over the weekend.
The Hotel was very good value for money as well.
The only downside is the choice at Breakfast,having stayed in other Holiday Inn Express where the choice of breakfast were better,but you can always go back for more.
Overall we will be going back to stay at The London - Park Royal

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoveToTri Good value in London
The hotel provided easy access to the Underground. It was at the end of Zone 2, which was about a 20-30 minute ride into the center. The staff was fantastic - we were allowed to check in early, the breakfast supervisor worked hard to keep everything stocked, and when they ran out of outlet converters, the manager still found a way to help us charge our items. Free wifi for Priority Club members was nice, but I feel like this should be included for everyone. Free breakfast was filling, although a few more choices could have been added. Rooms were clean and quiet (even though we were on the side facing the Underground station. Tesco across the street, good pub at the end of the street. Beds could have been a little plusher, but we still slept well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan26 It's an OK Hotel, not quite the 4.9 out of 5 star rating as rated by others.
We stayed at this hotel based on a 4.9 out of 5 review given by others. They were raving on about the friendliness of the staff. I must admit it sets the standard quite high up there when a hotel has been rated 4.9 out of 5. Some of the staff were indeed friendly, others don't really have that friendly and helpful attitude towards us as guests.
It's a pretty good value for the price we paid. Closeness to the train station and a Tesco Express store that's open until 11pm were a plus.
On the not so positive side, the WiFi internet was very slow, even at the lobby area. There was nothing the staff could do about it. WiFi may not be that important sometimes but for us it happened to be the time we need to make some bookings for the next leg of our travel. Overall, a pretty good hotel but I've had a better experience in a HI Express that has a rating of lower than 3 out of 5.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SartorialSeattle77 Park Royal
The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. The neighborhood near to the hotel had very convenient shops and restaurants. The Castle, a classic English pub chain, which was across the street, has a good variety on the menu. We sampled the fish and chips and the burgers - both excellent. The tube stop is directly behind the hotel and the bus stop is in front of the hotel. Although it is a bit far from the city center, the Park Royal has everything that you may need in a business hotel.

On arrival 2 members of staff 1 friendly the other a little surly , however this seemed to change later . Room a lot of noise coming from above almost like someone was working in the kitchen , banging and clanging , etc . Room was ok nothing special , but then I'm more accustomed to higher profile hotels , didn't have a great nights sleep , and why oh why do Icgroup hotels always use cheap cheap toilet paper . Not very nice.
I was disappointed , but I would give the hotel a second chance

It is the second time we have stayed at the Park Royal and look forward to the next time. The hotel is a perfect location for shopping at the Westfield Centre with the station two minutes walk from the hotel. It also gives easy access to central London.
However the real draw for the hotel is the helpful, friendly staff for whom nothing appears to be too much trouble. Excellent help yourself breakfast, regularly topped up by vigilant staff who clean as they go.
Look forward to the next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jwren09 Just what we wanted.
We chose this property because of its proximity to the tube station (literally right infront of the station, but noise was not a problem, didn't hear a thing) and the ease of traveling to White City tube, for our visit to see Strictly Come Dancing at Television Centre. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable and spacious enough for what we needed. The breakfast offered a good variety, and plenty to fill up on before we headed into London. The staff were very helpful and courteous. Overall an excellent stay and I would defintiely return & recommend to a friend.

Nice hotel,friendly and helpful staff and in an excellent location for the Central Line rooms clean and comfortable only problem I really had was when I decided to use the bar was informed they had no beer left and it wouldn't be replenished until Monday felt that although they had a television in the bar/lounge area maybe the provision of Sky sports might help improve the general ambiance of the area

We were in London for an american football game at Wembley.
The location was perfect: bus stop right in front of the door, tube (Central Line) behind the hotel, Tesco across the street.
Comfortable room, quiet and clean. Few choices for breakfast, but it was consistent and tasty.
I recommend this hotel!
Guides for Wembley:
tube - Central Line (red) from North Acton to Bond Street, then Jubilee Line (grey) from Bond Street to Wembley Park;
bus - 266 from North Acton Station (Z) to St. Mary's Road (Z), then 18 from St. Mary's Road (Z) to Waverley Avenue (SJ).

A great choice of hotel for a birthday treat in London, easy to find and only a couple of minutes from the Central Line tube station. We were greeted by friendly, helpful staff and made to feel welcome from the start. Our room was warm, clean and comfortable and the bathroom was spotless.
The buffet breakfast each morning was tasty and quickly replenished by attentive staff. The hotel offers a 24 hour bar and snack boxes are available should you feel peckish. Would definately recommend to others and will certainly be staying again on our next visit to London.
