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

We found this ideally located hotel on a planned trip to visit family in Stratford, London. The Hotel is basic but clean, comfortable and reasonably priced for London. There is secure parking at the rear. The room was en suite and had the normal facilities. Breakfast was included and was excellent. The main building has many original Victorian features, there...

As good as you should expect for the money in London and a lot better than more expensive places nearby. Safe parking and good location near Stratford station. Super fast staff when serving food and the bar is reasonable too!!!

Great service and really friendly staff...we were also upgraded to an apartment from a family room which made our stay! Breakfast is nothing spectacular but they did cook me some scrambled eggs on request which I appreciated. Hotel is a little dated but our apartment was clean and spacious so no complaints really. Stratford tube station/Westfields is 15/20 min walk... More

Pro: Very friendly staff, they try to do more than would be expected. Warm welcome; helpful information; friendly atmosphere, seem truly interested. The room and the shared bathroom was cleaner than expected. Very good value for money. Close to transport bus out the front straight to subway. Access to Stratford Station was convenient. Close to shoppingmall Westfield. Con: Limited breakfast... More

This place is cheaper than the average, so expectations are lower... however, I had a great stay, the double room had a comfy bed, flatscreen tv and just fine bathroom, and wifi too (with intermittent issues ... but wifi inside the main foyer area always worked). The only downside was the people above me were pretty noisy - waking me... More

Stayed here before completing the Prudential Ride London, whilst wife took tube into London from Stratford station. The room was very comfortable and was clean and tidy, as we had early starts, they laid on a buffet breakfast for us starting from 5am which was very accommodating of them for a Sunday morning!! We were able to leave our car... More
