How to Get There
First the basics: I stay a lot at this hotel. It is in Chiswick (a plus for me), the rooms are nice and "reasonably" priced (this is London...). Overall it is a good hotel, specially if you do not want to be in the centre of everything and appreciate a more suburban experience.
This time I was running out of options in the city, so I booked the executive room, which given the size and the fact that it is in the top floor, is probably one of the best they have.
And it shows. The room is large, with a wall to wall view of West, North-west London. There is a kettle, free wi-fi, and a huge expresso machine. So nothing really to complain.
Except that I am sure whoever designed this room (as many other hotel rooms) either travels alone, or has actually never stayed in a hotel, or does not understand the need for privacy. There are people like that...
The room as I said is large, and it continues into the bathroom. There is no separation between the bedroom part and the bathroom sink and bathtub area. Only the floor changes from carpet to tiles. The sinks (there are 2) are triangular. Again, whoever designed that has never, ever shaved on it. It gets messy.
But the thing with the privacy is this: in the back of this large bath/bedroom combination is the toilet. Separating both a thin sliding glass door. If you are in your first trip with your boy/girlfriend, and you want to preserve the magic of the relationship, ask for a normal room, with actual doors. Maybe this is one of my many obsessions, but it is really annoying that in the name of some weird concept of design the basic thing about a door is forgotten.
One final note: Opposite to the toilet cubicle is the shower one, also separated by a thin sliding glass door. The shower box is actually elevated, rather than sunk. Guess what happens with the water from your elevated shower box? Gravity takes control, and sends it flooding the rest of the bathroom.
So, all in all, I always have a great experience with the Clayton. The executive room is worth the money because of the size, but I still would love a word with the architect that design it. Zero common sense there.
I stayed in a double room last Friday and I was disapointed in the fact I checked in whilst staff were cleaning. If they want to allow late check out then guests should not be able to check in while their rooms are being cleaned, just make the checkin time later so guests can enjoy privacy and not get in the way of the staff. There was also a large crack in the room mirror which had been covered in duct tape. Classy.
The staff were friendly and helpful and can not be faulted.
Caught up with some friends for a few drinks and feast in between meetings in London.
The service on arrival was very efficient and polite.
The room was great, as was the comfortable bed. Best night's sleep in a while.
Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and tasty too, unlike some buffet style breakfasts which can often be bland.
Will be sure to stay again as a great location just of motorway and reasonably priced too.
Decided to stop over last minute Clayton was located close to the motorway. Seemed a good choice and was pleasantly surprised
Great hotel, spacious rooms friendly staff.
Located in Chiswick a few minutes walk from some lovely restaurants and cafes.
With secured underground parking.
Oldish hotel but refurbished quite effectively. Unlike many modern hotels it does have a bit of character. Nice hotel bar with pleasant and attentive staff. Hotel evening meals were fine and reasonable value for money. The highlight was the breakfast service - fantastic range of food - pretty much anything you could want! Rooms were clean and spacious. Nice change from the faceless big chain experience.
