Positive Reviews

Clean and comfortable rooms

Overall, guests have found the rooms at this Ilford hotel offer clean and comfortable surroundings. The accommodation is found to be reasonably spacious and, despite some omissions, a reasonable selection of amenities.

Friendly and helpful staff

Previous guests have generally found the staff here to be friendly and helpful. There are a few exceptions but the overriding opinion of guests is a good one. The front desk staff, in particular, are found to offer a warm welcome and attentive service.

Budget-friendly option

Rates for hotels in London can be prohibitive to many people. For this reason, guests have tended to find that this hotel offers a budget-friendly alternative to hotels in the heart of the capital. Freebies such as Wi-Fi, parking, and breakfast offer additional savings.

Negative Reviews

Rooms can feel hot

Although guests tend to describe the rooms here as clean and comfortable, feelings about the latter can change during hot weather when the lack of air-conditioning can leave the accommodation feeling hot and stuffy.

Small breakfast room

Guests tend to enjoy the breakfast here but do tend to describe the dining room as small. Individual tables are placed so close together that guests have felt a little cramped.

Perhaps too far from Central London

This hotel offers a budget-friendly stay but guests have occasionally mentioned that they found the property too far from Central London. With public transport taking around an hour to reach the capital, you may find the travel times excessive when visiting attractions.
