The Bridge Hotel, Greenford, Middlesex

Rating 5/5
Great overnight stay

Located on a busy roundabout, this Young's hotel next to the A40 in Greenford,  is a prime location and you could be forgiven for thinking it will be noisy being so close to a main thoroughfare. We have stayed here a few times and never had our sleep interrupted. It is surprisingly quiet.

Arriving a few hours before official check-in (as we were planning to be out and about until late evening), we were pleasantly surprised that we were able to "check in" in that we had our room allocated and were able to register our car with reception........ all we had to do was pick up our key from reception when we returned later that evening. Very simple, very quick. No hassles.

The bar closed at midnight, and at last orders, we were offered the chance to buy more drinks before they shut the bar if we wanted them and stay in the bar to drink them after closing - no chucking out time.

The staff were very friendly and they acknowledge you if they passed you around the hotel. They also had knowledge of the local area so were able to give us tips about the local public transport and advised us not to walk through the underpass that runs under the neighbouring roundabout late at night.

There are 3 floors - no sure if there is a lift, as we took the stairs to our allocated room on the second floor. The room we had was very spacious and similar to the size of room we have had on previous stays, so this is probably the norm. The beds: huge with a mattress that just envelopes you and make you want to stay snuggled under the duvet forever! Extremely comfortable and luxurious. There were plenty of power points and good lighting too. The desk drawer had a hairdryer.

The bathroom was well equipped (although we did not have any soap) and maybe we were lucky on this stay, or maybe it is common throughout the hotel, but the towels were still quite new, which meant they were really fluffy, white and clean.

Our rate included breakfast. Served until a reasonable time over the weekend (until 10am), the breakfast room had obviously been busy in the run up to the time we entered. There were a few tables with discarded plates and cups where people had vacated the space, but we did find a free table. Breakfast is the usual fayre....... cereals, fruit juice and hot items cooked to order. The staff were happy to take bespoke orders. The only gripe? The baked beans were quite cold. Tea was served in a pot.

Chucking out time is 11am, which given that breakfast finished by 10am was fine for us.

Will we stay there again? Sure we will
