Baylis - With something extra
I recently switched from an alternate hotel as I stay most weeks in Slough for 1 night.
Baylis has ample parking, is easy to reach, rooms are fine and clean, pricing is comparable. The bonus is the great Indian kitchen which serves excellent food...seriously tasty food. On all my previous visits the English breakfast was, as described by many other visitors...a shocker, but I forgave them this as the Indian food was so great. I'm happy to report management however must have read feedback because on my last visit breakfast improved significantly.
Baylis can now have my 4 stars.
This hotel is most disappointing
If poor service and poor food at a good price are your thing, then this is the place to stay.
The receptionist was unfriendly and not very efficient,. The room was not equipped very well and felt stark. The windows were left unlocked and had I not checked would have remained so all night... For a woman travelling alone this is not great. Basically very disappointing place where even a simple smile would have been nice but never happened.
Looking for an excuse
An amazing place.
A little run down but actually it still looked and felt great. Food (Indian) was superb. Very authentic..I could have been back in India.
The room we had was nice and clean, but very hot even with the window open.
Gutted never again
Room so tiny.
Blind did not even fit in window hence light coming through. Bathroom light would not switch off. Reception informed of our issues and did not seem at all bothered. Breakfast was laughable. Gutted because I was planning on staying here at least once a month to visit my son in Windsor. Breakfast consisted of a choice of one cereal, 4 pastries on a plate, scrambled egg with brown bits in it, sausages well did not taste or look like sausages. And thank god I wasn't planning on a lie in on the Sunday morning as there was a wedding going on at 9am with bongo drums the whole Shabang!!!
Overnight stay midweek
Room very small and very noisy - you could hear all conversations in the corridors.
Outside view of a rolled up dirty carpet in the courtyard. Bed very lumpy and uncomfortable, 'side tables' were actually old office desk drawers. Booked in for breakfast at 8am, ordered promptyly but although there were only 4 other tables in the restuarant, had to chase up order at 8.30 and it arrived at 8.55am!!!. Overall would not stay again and would not recommend
A lovely old building with a very interesting history.
The room was cold the heating did not work in the room or the bath room. It had no double glazing and every little sound from outside could be heard. The six in the morning visit from the dustbin men was far from welcome, the sound of empty bottles rattling into the lorry was most impressive. Then to find that the hot water had all gone and the breakfast was dull and unappetizing sent us off in a grumpy mood for the day. we called at a supermarket and bought a breakfast for half the cost at the hotel and we then started to feel better.
When you drive up to the hotel it looks fantastic but from then on it was quite disappointing.
We stayed in the refurbished part of the hotel in a deluxe room , the room was very nice until we looked out of the window to see rolls of old carpet. That evening and the following morning we had no hot water, thought it was expensive for what we got and we got it £20 cheaper than the actual rate of £95.
A little quirky
On arrival checking clerk initially couldn't locate my reservation ,which had been misfiled .
First shown to room in stable block , lots of sheets and debris in corridors, room very dark and in need of redecoration , not all lights working. I declined this room then shown a recently modernised room with aircon, and modern lighting etc. unfortunately givens key for room already occupied. Third time with manager escorting me finally found room. Restaurant , housekeeping and reception staff all very friendly and helpful.
This is a very old building and as such needs some TLC.
The room was functional and basic. The Indian food in the restaurant was pretty ordinary and served on cold plates, as was the breakfast. It's certainly an impressive looking place as you drive up to it and the conference center is a modern building, which is an odd contrast in respect to the hotel. For one night it was reasonable value for money, but I couldn't fall in love with the place.
