Stayed here for one night. Never again. Family room which yes was clean but the bathroom was far from ok. The shower was a challenge to switch off once you had actually been able to find the right temp to actually have a shower. The carpet in the bedroom was damp near the bathroom and smelt musty. Placing a family... More

Firstly, I've found with booking.com a couple of times that they allow you to book with a debit or credit card but in fact it usually has to be a credit card. We received an email to say this was not accepted and phoned to tell them about this. To which they replied yes it is fine to book with... More

The Cranbrook Hotel offered a vaguely affordable place to stay outside the centre of London during July. It is located in Ilford which is not somewhere I will choose to stay again and is to be found in a residential street which doesn't appear to have had any maintenance done to it since the war. The Cranbrook is not aesthetically... More

Stayed in a triple room due to working in the area, we have stayed in the groups other nearby hotels which are to a reasonable standard however this clearly is not their flagship hotel! On arrival we were shown to the annexe across the road, the room was grubby and had been smoked in, the ensuite looked to have been... More

I stayed for a few nights. Wifi never worked and I needed it for work. It was noisy and smelly. The sheet on my bed didn't even fit. The shower pressure was poor and I ran out of hot water fast. The bathroom was modern and spacious - the shower wasn't very big. The TV was on the wall where... More

Stayed in Cranbrook Hotel for three nights with my niece. We both liked the place. It's nothing fancy but it's clean and the staff is very friendly. Their breakfast menu is buffet style and everything you want a cooked English breakfast to be. The one and only thing that was a bit disappointing was the bad e-mail connection. Since we... More

We arrived to the Cranbrook, but we were then sent to the Park Hotel. I really wonder why that is- just curious. The room was a bit older looking and had mildew-smell. We are not fussy and were happy to have a clean room for the good price. Breakfast was generous and we appreciated that. Parking was good as well.... More

We were originally booked to stay at this hotel but ended up staying at a partner due to unforeseen circumstances with the room. Because of this, the staff organized a better room with a nearby partner hotel and a free taxi. The staff were pleasant and though we didn't stay here, we had great service. Can't complain!
