Fortunately the staff was very welcoming and friendly when we arrived.The room was clean and the shared bathroom had hot water. Although the toilet would occasionally malfunction. There are 2 toilets on each floor with 1 shower area. Accommodation is inclusive of a huge portion of English breakfast with eggs, bacon, beans and 2 slices of toast. Cereals, coffee and... More

Have stayed here many times now and the staff have always been welcoming and friendly. The rooms are very clean with tea/coffee making facilities (and a pack of biscuits!). The shower room is slightly small but adequate for a single person. The beds are comfy and made every day, along with providing you with clean towels. The room/shower are spotlessly... More

I have to agree with a lot of the other comments.The staff here are very rude and unwelcoming. The area is not the greatest so a warm welcome and decent attitude from the staff would work wonders. The man in charge comes across as obnoxious and unpleasant and is seems very unhelpful and unaccommodating. The beds are actually nice and... More

A warm encounter with a welcoming staff helps when you visit a new place. The staff treated us roughly and were not helpful in guiding us to the area. My husband and I felt we were very unwelcome in this place. The place is not close to trains but is close to buses from stratford. The rooms werent very clean... More

The room were were given had to couches and both were stained with stuff i dread to think of, the chestboard was made of very cheap plastic and was obnoxious to the eye, not the sort of thing you want to see in your holiday.

Was very impressed with car park at rear with electronic gates in operation. Room was basic with small en-suite but had every thing needed for our one night stay. Clean and comfortable an ideal size for... More

The hotel is nice and cozy, and is conveniently located near a bus stop. The buss will take you to the area around Stratford Subway station in about 5 minutes. There you find quite a few shops and restaurants. If you want to go to the city centre, there are several options by bus or subway, but they all take... More

We stayed at the Forest View for 3 nights and were very happy with all aspects of this hotel. It offers budget accommodation but, having stayed previously at similar hotels in London, we were very impressed by standards of cleanliness and details such as the provision of shampoo/soap and daily change of towels. The bed was very comfortable and bathrooms... More
