Customers wishing to travel up to see a gig and stay locally over-night might be interested in details of local hotels set out below.

Prices, and other information, quoted is correct as at Feb 2014 and of course could vary dramatically so are offered as an indication only. Prices are based on a FRIDAY night stay.

If you are using public transport in London you need an Oyster Card or contactless payment card. The buses do NOT accept cash.

Please note I have NOT stayed at these hotels.

I recommend you always check on booking.com before you book as there are sometimes offers, and if there is a major event on at Wembley Stadium the hotels around here fill up fast.

The Barn Hotel

The nearest hotel is The Barn Hotel, it is about a five minute walk away, head towards the station and it is on your right.

It is quite expensive at about 90 for a night (standard double/twin), room ONLY, however it near it is to us and is a bit swish. Maybe a place for a more romantic stay??

The Premier Inn (at The Orchard)

The most expensive Premier Inn in England (well maybe) is also within walking distance...just. Walk towards the station, when you reach the entrance to The Barn Hotel (above) bear left at the roundabout up Wood Lane. At the top of Wood Lane is the White Bear pub, and on the opposite side of the roundabout there is The Orchard, and within it The Premier Inn, you have to go right along the front of it to access it, via its car park.

The price for a double room, excluding breakfast, is about 85, and for the difference I think I would opt for The Barn Hotel.

The Ramada South Ruislip

Stupidly called The Ramada Heathrow, it is nowhere near Heathrow and getting from there to Heathrow is by no means easy.

Here good value rooms can usually be found on a Friday night, where a double will cost around 65 and includes continental breakfast. Strangely a twin will cost you a lot more, so you are almost better off to have two doubles and sole occupancy. 

Getting to it from Tropic is a short bus ride away. Head to the top of Grosvenor Vale (the road we are in) and turn left. About 50 yards along here is the bus stop for the E7, which runs until about 00.50 on a Friday. Take it to the bus stop called "South Ruislip Station" and then head down the road running off to the left at the lights called Station Approach, the hotel is just under the bridge, about a 10 minute walk away...if that.

Hillingdon Lodge Hotel

Not far from Hillingdon Station where you can get a train to until as late as about 1.20 from Ruislip this hotel could be considered if you are travelling alone and money is a serious consideration (but see Travelodge below). A single room with continental breakfast could cost as little as 30 for a night, but your loo is down the corridor.

The Hillingdon Lodge does not try to be anything is it not, but does not have great reviews.

Travelodge Uxbridge (probably best value)

Trains to Uxbridge leave as late as 1.20 a.m. from Ruislip most nights and this hotel is just beyond the bus garage, which itself is just outside the SIDE entrance to Uxbridge station.

This Travelodge is fairly new and looks to represent excellent value for money where, if you book well in advance, you can get a double room (no breakfast) for as little as 30.

Exit the hotel, walk away from the station, turn left and follow the road around the bend and you will find Wetherspoons where their breakfast has to be seen as good value.

Please be aware this hotel has NO CAR PARK, but why not leave your car in a side street near Tropic' and just pick it up in the morning?? (do not park overnight in Tropic's car park, not that we have problems, but you never know what might be on the next day!!).

(There is another Travelodge near Northolt station if this is full, but it is a bit of a pain to get to from the venue late at night by public transport)

Eurotraveller Hotel-Premier Harrow, London

This is a new hotel in Harrow and is just a short 114 bus ride away from Ruislip, get off the 114 at the stop AFTER the station (and outside the Police Station). There are some good prices offered on a room only rate on booking.com The hotel has a web site here

Bell Inn Ruislip Gardens

This is a "new" hotel which has been made out of the upper floor of the pub that has been there for many years.

Their web site seems not to quote prices, but it will not be at the budget end of the range (see below). The pub downstairs is itself is at best average but does now have real ale which is a step in the right direction (If link does not work try this).

TROPIC AT RUISLIP SPECIAL RATES at The Bell (correct a while back!)

Single occupancy in a double/twin room 65 (usually 75)
Double room 75 (usually 85)
Twin room 75 (usually 85)
Triple room (3 singles) 100 (usually 120)

Correct as at June 2015, ask for James and mention Tropic At Ruislip to get these prices.
