I spent a fortnight working in Romford in the run-up period to the Olympics, when accommodation in the area had rocketed in price. Repton Private Hotel had not followed that course but payment was required at the time of booking, which I didn't like - it's one thing to require credit card detail in case of a 'no-show' but entirely another to take the payment immediately!
The stay was perfectly pleasant and the internet connection worked well, but there was no satisfactory desk/seating for the laptop and necessary documentation, so I was uncomfortable marking and made unaccustomed errors, to the extent that I finally gave up on it and therefore lost money through being unable to continue.
The room was a little jaded and shabby, really in need of an upgrade, but the bed was comfortable and I slept well at the back of the house and right away from the road.
Breakfast was adequate but the choice of cereals was very limited. The owner though, Mr. Rana went out of his way to be helpful and always did his best to please. The room was good value for the price, and well within the company's daily living allowance.
