Parts of the wallpaper were ripped, the walls were mucky. no head board on the bed and the carpet was mucky. Obviously I was not prepared 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

We stayed in a room where the fire escape could be opened with ease from the outside!!!! Needless to say our bag and trainers were 'stolen'. Police were called and outraged so much they went to another room and did the same. We're not even offered an apology told flatly they didn't do refunds. But the do have a sign... More

Ive travelled a lot with work, throughout the country and never have I encountered such unfriendly, uncaring staff. They change there prices (upwards to more than advertised on price board) to suit their greediness. First impressions are not good at this place and my feet will not enter that building again!

My involvement with this excuse for a bed and breakfast occurred pre my involvement with trip advisor but it would be remiss of me not to inform my fellow trip advisors of this truly awful spot. I booked and paid for a double room for my sister and mother who were arriving in to stanstead airport on a late flight.... More
