Booked here for a one night stay as attending a party in Ilford. All I can say is I'm glad the party was great and we didnt actually spend more that 5 hours in our "room"! First impressions were grim, the reception smelt like a 1970s working mans club, it reeked of smoke and body odour, filling me with dread... More

Two people from my group was robbed on second morning! The staff of hotel " unexpectedly" found bags after we called police. Area is a bit scaring. There were a lot of drugged people. Breakfast was nice. But tables were often busy.

Woken by the smell of frying from the kitchen. The breakfast was ok but overcrowded in the dining area and had to... More

We've recently been staying at the Cranbrook Hotel for a week (two adults, one child), the rooms are rather the standard for hotels of it's price class in London, could do with some refurbishing but unless you are particularly picky they are absolutely ok. I've seen other hotels in the vicinity (e.g. the Britannia Inn) and they have newer interiors... More
