This is the worst hotel stay I have experienced. If you are thinking of staying here, you will want to change your mind very quickly! To list the negative points of this hotel: * Uncomfortable beds with springs that dig into your back. * Double room bed pushed up against a wall so one person will disturb the other if... More

I travel all over the world and spend approx. 60 nights a year in hotels, which are all of a very good standard. My son and I needed to stay in this Best Western for four nights and were both very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean, the room was small but adequate and (most importantly) all of the staff... More

We have stayed here as a family regularly over the last few years and have only ever had one problem over this time, which was dealt with satisfactorily. However, our latest stay here will be our last. We were shown to our room at 1pm and at this time, the fire alarm was ringing. We returned after a full day... More

It's not management or the staff's fault this hotel just sucks. First off, the room is about 8/10 ft. And with two people, its quite tight. (Room 53) Wi-Fi is hit or miss The street that the hotel is on is very busy, which would be ok if only you didn't have to have the windows open all night. It... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights (we're checking out shortly) so we could attend a family wedding in Walthamstow. As an ex-Londonner I refuse to say this hotel is in London! Ilford is in Essex but you can get to Central London in about 30 minutes from Ilford Station (5 min walk away). However, if you get... More

Me and my partner have just arrived back from a 3 night stay here. The hotel is in a great location in Ilford, a 5 minute walk from the train station which you can use to get you into Liverpool street in around 20 minutes. Some may say it is a little far from the centre of London but I... More
