Partner & I fancied a weekend in London to catch up with some friends and go to the comedy club (Angel, Queens Head), but didn't want to pay the ridiculous prices central london charges - even though we are both full-time working professionals on above average wages. We paid £95 for two nights which included; free parking (right outside our... More

When you stay at a hotel in London where you get parking, breakfast, wifi and a decent room for £40 a night, it's churlish to point out its faults. The fact is that this is a warm and welcoming guest house that was completely full the night I stayed. It was quiet; a stone's throw from Ilford town centre with... More

A good clean basic, guesthouse characterised by friendly staff who work with a professional attitude. I will definitely use this place again. The location is good with easy access to shops and eating places. Breakfast is good and as expected the service matches that. On the minus side some of the fittings have seen better days but the environment is... More

I stayed here with three friends (we had 2 separate twin rooms) for one night as we were attending a one day festival in the Olympic park, and it happened to be the Wimbledon finals weekend so a lot of places were booked up and prices were high in the chain hotels! We booked relatively last minute (about 5 days... More

Lovely staff at desk and breakfast. Very accommodating indeed and with a smile. Parked free with no problems - seems safe area with many hotels lining this street. My friend and I walked about dressed as Patsy and Jessica Rabbit - I was expecting hassle to be honest but received none - just the odd dirty look!... Sorry it's Halloween.... More

I booked a triple and double room for a family trip to London. I was very happy Rooms were clean, staff polite and helpful, very close to the town centre and the railway station. Lots of free parking. Good wifi. Nice large modern tv No complaints. I will use again.

We stayed here for one night and to be honest didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised for what we got for our money. The place clean throughout. The room was basic but clean and well resourced. Have no complaints whatsoever. The breakfast area was pleasant, tea coffee and fruit juice on tap along with toast, then a... More

To be honest I came just to stay at night I went out to get some food and the food shops are very close... But I wouldn't recommend anyone to go out at night... The reason why I say that is because anything can happen to you in these areas... You'll get asked random questions by random people... And it... More

Down side was there was no parking spaces left when we got back late on Saturday night but apart from that we have no complaints at all. Room was small but clean, bedding white and fresh, nice shower and cooked breakfast... all for £42.00 !! Also... More

It's converted from two townhouses. Almost 80% of the houses on that street have gone through the same change and now are hotels, including a Bestwestern. The neighborhood is not so great. I would try not walking alone after dark. It is very close to a train station so travel in/out London is convenient, except that public transit is expensive... More
