I stayed here overnight during a 2 day training weekend. The bottom line is it's cheaper than a Travelodge and better too. The hotel is clean, modern and nicely furnished. The staff are friendly and polite as well- even when delivering breakfast to your room at 7am on a Sunday.
The reception area was open and spacious and I was greeted by a helpful receptionist who gave me the room I was expecting (Classic Double @ £59.00 a night). The room wasn't huge but it was furnished with a double bed, desk and chair, LCD TV, wardrobe and two bed side tables. There was also a small en-suite. Again, everything was clean and modern. The high ceiling kept the room feeling spacious. All towels and toiletries were provided.
I have read reviews from people saying that the walls are paper thin and that they couldn't sleep at all. Yes, you can hear people's doors slam and loud conversation in the next room etc, but it's a hotel room, not a soundproof recording studio!
The only major gripes I had were:
- En-suite really is small- no chance of getting dressed in there.
- The shower head was mounted too low. I managed but it could have been a lot higher.
- Breakfast is a bit odd... It's continental and was fine with cereal, yogurt and a pre-packed croissant; but the muffin and carton juice drink? Orange juice would have been nice, but bear in mind that for £59.00 you get breakfast included and brought up to your room at a time of your choosing...
The hotel is within a 10-15 walk of either Gants Hill tube station or Ilford station so its nice and accessible.
Overall, a nice stay over, I would recommend it. Think more swish B & B than hotel...
