The rooms and bathrooms were clean enough, fridge in my room, TV working, and who knows what the breakfast taste like since I could swear that the bar tendresse told me I had till 9 30 am and she was wrong. The bar seemed sweet with mixed age locals. Nice walk from the transpo stations. Make sure you know your... More

Myself and my partner were looking for a last minute hotel in London and came across the Forest Gate Hotel, at £50 we thought it was a good price and checked out locations etc. it seemed perfect for what we wanted. We were attending a gig at Olympic Park which we knew would mean we would be checking in at... More

Complete garbage. Do not stay here. One of our rooms had a shower in it however it did not drain. Did a little fishing with a coat hanger and caught a large wad of hair. The complementary cups in the room had a pube in it. The room refreshments consisted of a lone tea bag that wasn't even packaged. Word... More

not only was the room a complete dump, £200 worth of items somehow magically disappeared from my locked room.... Old beer cans were stuffed under the bed alongside old cigarettes and do not even get me started on the bathroom facilities. Overall, the service was awful, the rooms were a dump and they robbed me. Do not stay here.

I was scared to book this hotel with all the bad reviews and I was seriously considering staying in a dorm room in a hostel instead for a similar price. So glad I didn't. I booked a single room and got a double bed in quite a large room. It looks like it was painted recently and the carpet looks... More

The Central Hotel where I had booked could not take me when I arrived at about 7 pm in the evening so they said they were moving me to their "sister Hotel", The Forest Gate so I had no choice to cancel and it was too late to start looking for another hotel. I had to pay for my 2... More
