A family party of four stayed for two nights on 27 & 28 February 2013.
Very helpful and attentive staff, attractive rooms, excellent breakfast.
Close to facilties in Woodford Green - Tube, shops, restaurants etc.
("Seasons" restaurant - a short walk away - is superb).
Highly recommended.

Not a bad little place, good price and very friendly, i would recommend this place.
Close enough to London and M11.A1 connections. great little Italian near by the Belsit, also worth a visit. altough you need to get there early to get a seat.

This small hotel was the perfect venue for a family wedding we attended 7/12, everything from the moment we entered the lobby felt homely & welcoming.
The individually decorated rooms were beautiful & amenities were lovely.
The staff were very attentive & friendly, the food from breakfast to the wedding meals were delicious.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for first class service in wonderful surroundings!!!

Room Tip: best beds in the world !!! we stayed in room 3

We booked a family room at Packfords for one night and were very pleased with everything. They put us an extra bed in the room to accommodate us all, and the room was really lovely and cosy right at the top. Even with two adults, a teenager, five year old and a baby the room felt spacious and not cramped. Lovely tea and coffee making facilities with proper hot chocolate, and free wifi. The staff couldn't have been lovelier, from a nice welcome and letting us leave our car in the carpark way before check in, to the very attentive and professional young waiter, and a staff member offering to look after our baby so we could eat our breakfast! Breakfast delicious, with lots of lovely toast made with proper bread! Lots of proper butter provided- pet hate to ask for more! Fresh fruit, cereal and juice available and pots of jam, and then a lovely fry up with obvious quality ingredients. Had a great family feel, relaxed and friendly. Lovely garden which us smokers appreciated. Suggestions not criticisms- perhaps somewhere to leave a pushchair as family room right at top, but have a feeling if I had asked they would have certainly accommodated. More children friendly cereals on offer, slightly bigger breakfast (but we are really greedy and eat more than probably your average normal person). Positioning of tv in family room benefited children more than adults! Wonderful beautifully clean smart place to stay and less than half an hour to central London.

We stayed here in October 2012 for a night. The room we were allocated was at the front of the house and it had no double glazing. At 6am i am not sure if it was the traffic that woke us or the people upstairs moving about. I wanted to have a bath but there was no heating in either the bathroom or the bedroom. We did not get the opportunity to let any of the staff know about the shortcomings - i get tired of complaining in Britain. I think if they are bothered about how a customer feels they would provide a feedback form or ask us!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will presumably have less traffic noise and obviously the top floor won't have...

I stayed at this hotel for a wedding and must say that for this purpose it was brilliant. The rooms and gardens are beautiful, the staff were helpful and there was plenty of room to relax in during the course of the day (although the bar was a little expensive - one Pimms & lemonade and a water = £7.70!). The breakfast in the morning was tasty and plentiful with great service. However, although we had a gorgeous bathroom in our room, it didn't have an actual usable shower, just an attachment that like others have said had no water pressure (bit of a conumdrum for the boyfriend who was counting on a nice invigorating shower before attending the wedding!) which we would not expect in a hotel. I can quite see why some people state it should be reclassified as a B&B due to features like this and things like no one being on hand to help with bags. We also had a momentary panic at being told we couldn't check in until 2pm which was the same time as the wedding, but luckily they gave us access as soon as we arrived (10am). I do think some of the curfew comments are a little unfair - everyone is advised that their room key opens the front door, I can sympathise why someone might be grumpy at getting up to let in forgetful guests. In summary I'm not sure I would automatically pick this as somewhere to stay ordinarily, but certainly for weddings how they manage this, it was perfect.
