5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This was our first stay at St Georgio. The hotel is very inviting and the staff were very welcoming. Our suite was very spacious, it was clean and had everything we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable. The hotels location is excellent, the tube station is a minute away. We look forward to our next visit.
All in all an excellent hotel in a good location.

I stayed here for five nights and found this hotel really value for money.
It's location is its greatest asset... you will find Tesco, Sainsburry, Halal Asian Food, Underground Station, laundry, rent a car, mini cabs... everything that you need while on holidays in less than 3 mins walk.

The staff is really good and cooperative. Rooms are spacious and clean. The superior room has its own kitchen which helps. I highly recommend this hotel for tourist who want to save money on accommodation and do not mind taking tube to central London.

The only drawback is that it is far from Heathrow Airport. It will take atleast 1 hr 30 mins if you take underground or mini cab.

I have been using the St Georgio for a while now, and have always found the staff and services of a very good standard. My stays are always plesant and a complete package with the breakfast service. I have stayed in other hotels in the area, that are of note, but first and foremost I always book for this hotel when i come up to South Woodford, it is a very upset bunny when i cannot get a room here.... even on short notice.
All in all a very well deserved recommendation to the staff for making this such a welcoming abode.

Stayed here for 1 night on a saturday when we went to a family wedding. Easy check-in and friendly staff. Cheap car park just up the road. Room was good for the price and clean although it was quite hot. I was worried about the noise from the nightclub downstairs but actually i slept like a log (i had had a few drinks at the wedding!). Tesco express within walking distance and a nice pub. Was perfect for our needs and i would not hesitate to stay again. Much cheaper than many other hotels in the area.

Stayed here for 4 nights for a cheap short break to unwind (just got married) wanted a cheap place to lay our heads to explore London found the Hotel very clean, room had everything we needed and staff friendly. Only negatives noise from night club on Thursday and Friday Evening so suggest you ask for a room at back of hotel, and parking was limited although we was lucky enough to get a space. Location is great for the tube station only 2 minute walk. Food excellent value for money, recommend Curry and Chips. Ticked all the boxes for what we needed would stay again. Mr & Mrs Mitchell :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel to avoid nightclub noise.

Stayed here last night for one night... Very good for the price I paid (£50 for the night) and I stayed in a regular double room. Price included free breakfast for two but I didn't end up eating so I can't comment on the quality of the breakfast.

Positives:
Flat screen TV with Freeview channels - E4/E4+1, Channel 4/4+1, 4Music, Film4, ITV1/2/3/4, BBC Channels etc
Good location - Gants Hill station (Central Line) is less than 2 minutes walk away
Loads of shops/ convenience stores/ places to eat in the area
Bathroom bigger than loads of other hotel bathrooms in London
The room itself for a standard double was bigger than other standard rooms in London, had plenty of space to move around
Big double bed, very comfortable
Overall good room, very clean, decent location for East London/ Essex area

Minor Negatives:
Slightly stained carpets but overall the room was spotless
No bath in bathroom, only a shower
Slightly noisy at night if you're facing the street... Think there's a nightclub next door
Staff not very friendly/ personable
On arrival, the lady at the front desk asked me for my ID and scanned a copy of my driving license... Never had this before at any other hotel

Definitely would stay there again though and would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

When we were booking for this hotel based on the prices we didnt expect much but we were actually amazed with what this hotel had to offer. The room was spacious , with a flat tv and the bed was probably the most comfy bed I have ever slept. But wait there is more .. when we wanted to visit Central London or literally any part of London the station was right outside the hotel (40 meter walk) and we knew exactly the route since the receptionist gave us each an underground official map. Talking for the receptionist ,they are part of the hotel's friendly atmosphere , smiled every morning while offering us a chocolate before we went out :) they have also arranged a taxi for us at a better price. The breakfast was excellent as it had everything 5 star hotels have and also the restaurant was good- I would suggest double cheeseburger :) Finally , before we leave we wanted to go out on a saturday and we dressed , went outside ...just to come to the hotel's cocktail bar which was actually full, the dj blew everyone with his vibes and my Strawberry caipirinha was great (and £3 :p) . Going back for sure! p.s: the chinese restaurant opposite is a very good choice!
