“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

This hotel is abs horrible somebody should go and shut it down, I arrived there I received a key to a room that did not even have a lock, so why the key?
the furniture was dirty, the toilet was dirty with hairs everywhere, shower abs dirty, pillows were yellow, the curtains were dirty. More to this outside was a drunk man just hanging around between the cars, inside at the reception area were some strange men smelling of alcohol in the middle of the day just chatting, doing nothing, speaking in a different language and looking very angry.
I would never recommend, the smell the people everything.
The area as well looks a bit dodgy and dirty so even if you think you will not spend as much money better be safe and go somewhere a bit more expensive.
Pictures online are nothing like the reality.

This place is good if you're on budget and staying in London for 2-3 nights. The best on this place is its location - neighborhood is quite nice, and it's close to Ilford Railway station (so it's 20 minutes from London city center by train). But the rooms are old, carpet looks really dirty and wifi was almost not working. On the other side, bed sheets were clean and also bathroom was ok. TV was old-school one, but we didn't need it so no problem for us. Breakfast were not really a "full english", but tasted quite well. Staff was nice, although they were not speaking english very good.

This was a late booking due to an unexpected delay in a job in Ilford. Room was suitable for my needs. Large parking area out front so was able to park a long wheelbase sprinter easily. Merely minutes walk to commercial centre so again lots of opportunities to get fed and watered.

Clean, tidy, comfortable, and cheap. I'be saved the details so I can use again either for work or pleasure visit.

Just had the displeasure of staying in what I can only describe as a dump and that's being kind,was only there one night and that was one night too long,the rooms are disgusting and filthy,the mattress looked and smelled like a rat had being sleeping in it,the tv didn't work and when I asked to get it fixed nothing was done about it the shower was a joke u get more water coming out of the tap.i would rather sleep in the van than go back to this hotel,if carlsberg did worst hotels this would be it TERRIBLE.

I was asked to pay on arrival, I wish I'd have refused until I'd seen the room. It was dirty, dusty and smelt of mould. The carpet was filthy. The sheets were clean but the mattress underneath was stained as was the quilt. The curtains didn't fit properly and the net curtains had holes in. There was a used condom in the floor. I went to reception to say that I wasn't happy with the state of the room and he came up with a dustpan and brush, he didn't have a very good understanding of English. The shower was mouldy and had low pressure, the water was cold in the evening when we were getting ready to go out. Didn't bother going down for breakfast as I didn't fancy eating anything from there. Absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed in. I think the photos they use must be old. They still have the AA 4 star plaque outside, I think if it was current they would struggle to achieve 1 star.

When we got in to our room was shocked what we saw........first of all used condom on the floor we informed the manager he just came in to the room and put it in the bin no apology or anything like he was used to complaints, room had a mouldy smell, carpet was vile didnt even walk on it with bare feet, shower had mould all round it,no hot water to shower ,sink was leaking water on to bathroom floor,holes in net curtain, shelf hanging off the wall, staff were useless didn't understand English, noisy corridor at night with doors slamming need I say more definitely would not recommend this place to anyone and would never ever stay there again if it was the last place in ilford
