    Fabulous

    When we first arrived the room stank of smoke, however after mentioning this to the guy at reception he apologised and gave us another room. The new room we got was spotless and the staff could not have been more helpful. Very surprised at the quality of hotel for only £50 a night.

    Original room was saturated with the smell of smoke.

    Very good

    The proprietors were very friendly/helpful and although we were in a noisy location - the rooms we stayed in were sound proofed. There were two parts to this hotel and we were fortunate enough to stay in what appeared to be an extension so the rooms were relatively new. I am not sure whether the other rooms were up to the standard of these rooms.

    The staff were so friendly and helpful. They couldnt be faulted.

    The hotel could do with a bit of tlc and basic diy. The curtain rails were coming down in our room. However at the end of the day we just needed somewhere to sleep and leave our bags through the day.

    Shalimar location afford me the luxury of being close to Heathrow Airport in case of whenever Iam going back to my country; I reach the airport within a twinkle of an eye.

    It is a bit of a distance from either Hounslow Central and Hounslow West Train Stations. But it is still manageable anyway.

    Very good

    Its value for money was good as compared to other hotels or b&b,s but I wasn,t bothered about how luxurious it was, it was only for the 1 night to get to thorpe park the following morning nice and early. It was as expected for the money, as you can guess you will encounter many workers travelling and staying here which really didn,t worry me. The staff were pretty good and helpful and courteous, facilities were good, clean room, adequate beds and bedding, although could of done with some more pillows as my guests were used to 2 or 3 in their own beds and the 1 provided were just a bit on the flat side, breakfast more than reasonable and set us up for the day. Will stay again if I visit the area. Many reviews seen on the internet complained the hotel was directly under the path of airport traffic, but what do you expect when you book an hotel right near Heathrow airport ??? I kind of expected this and wasn,t put off.

    Well, little really to complain about.. Only when we first arrived we were put in a family triple room which is what I booked and reserved but upon arrival we were given that room only to be asked to move to a family room with a double and a single,, ( which to be honest was a better room ) and wasn,t a problem with the sleeping arrangements,, but would of been for the 3 men who should of had our room lol.. Just obviously a booking error the staff need to improve on. But still we obliged to change and that sorted all the problems out. The rooms could of been a little cleaner as my partner complained to me that the bathroom was a little untidy. A little more bedding wouldn,t go amiss ( more pillows please ).. a little more inspection to the rooms could have been carried out, because from when we got sorted in the room with luggage my partner put the kettle on for a cuppa and found that when it had boiled it was found that the previous tenants had ( as a joke i,m guessing ) put water and teabags in the kettle only to be found by us and made a mess of the kettle. But luckily I seen the funny side of that, whereas some people would of probably blown a fuse.. Just a little more attention to cleanliness for presentation to forthcoming guests would probably give the Shalimar more positive feedback. But regardless of any complaints, it was a good stay and would stay again .. Overall just little things really... Think iv,e seen worse. If I was to rate the Shalimar,, then maybe 8 out of 10

    The staff were friendly and did move me to another room when I complained. The location was 5 mins from where I was working.

    The first room I was put in, the bed springs had come through the mattress. I was move to another room which was better but the carpets were dirty. I went for breakfast and the bread was green mouldy. The corridors were dirty and stunk. The hotel needs a very good clean.

    I am a great believer in reading other people's reviews before buying or booking something and due the shocking state this b & b was found in I felt compeled to complete a review myself to highlight to others. We booked 3 rooms at The Shalimar Hotel for our 2 day trip to Thorpe Park half an hour away in July 2012. We chose this hotel based on the price and location to Thorpe Park. The Shalimar Hotel offered a large selection for breakfast including: orange or apple juice, tea or coffee, cornflakes, weetabix, toast, croissants, fruit, yoghurts and full english available on request. This was the only positive aspect of our one night stay here.

    We arrived to find very little parking available, settling eventually on the busy main road to the front of the hotel. On arrival to the reception area we were greeted by step ladders and the smell of paint. The hotel was under renovation, which it failed to mention on any of our communications. All 3 rooms were upstairs with no lift available. No assistance was offered with our bags & pushchairs. The stair bannisters were either missing, unstable or replaced by dowel with misplaced rusty nails. Room 3 (Double) to the side had a window opening onto a flat roof extension (not for the safety consious or those wishing to leave the window open at night) The shower door does not close & the room door handle & lock were also faulty. This room was also directly above the boiler room, which meant a constant humming lullaby throughout the night. Room 5 (Double) to the front overlooked the busy main road as did Room 18 (Family) The en-suite was suitable for the size 8 guests & had a faulty shower not to be used by children unless they wish to be scalded. All 3 rooms had an overwhelming stench of stale smoke upon opening, which remained on our clothes throughout the following day. The bedding & curtains appeared clean but very desperately in need of a makeover with holes visibly apparent in both net curtains & bed throws. Breakfast is served between 8-9am at weekends & although the self service was adequate enough,the standard of the full english isn't worth the wait. This hotel is currently undergoing refurbishment, which may well rectify our complaints however, no amount of paint will erase the fact that the hotel sits direclty beneath Heathrow's main flight path! Pay a little extra & go to Travel Lodge!

    Staff are good and useful (usually:D).

    It was like a disaster when you plan to go to London and will be in a undergrand tain more than one hour?!!!!!!!!!! Also you have to pay at least 5 pounds for going there and coming back!!!!!!!!!!! Then you have to walk for 10 minutes or catch a bus!!! So, I prefer to stay in more close hotel with higher price. Also, the quality of the rooms were so bad that I haven't seen these kind of rooms in more than 10 countries that I have been and also cheaper hotel in Manchester!!!! Do not choose there unless your have to be in Hounslow district (Book 20 pounds more expensive hotel in London).
