Perfect stay”

I highly recommend this hotel. I stayed at this hotel because I had to take a train from Stratford. It was a bit far from central London, but it was the perfect place to stay. The room is spacious, well-organized, and neat. Also, since the hotel is located in a quiet residential area, I was able to take a rest enough.

Bathroom was small and only a fixed over head shower. No bathroom floor mat and you step out on to slippy tiles. Carpets could do with an upgrade and windows need cleaning. The bed is a small double and quite hard and the air conditioning sounds like it’s going to break out of the wall. It’s was clean and did the job for is

As it was a 3 star we were a bit concerned but it was actually really nice. We stayed for a weekend and made use of the car park at £15 p/n and left it there for the day Sunday whilst we still enjoyed the weekend in London. The only down side was the room next to us decided to get up at 5am Sunday and bang doors and play loud music sadly. But that was the only thing about the whole weekend that was disappointing. Will definitely stay here again

Good clean hotel but very expensive”

The room rates are way too high making for very poor value for money. The hotel staff and rooms are fine with new, good quality fittings however this is not anything more than a Travel Lodge/Premier Inn style (although the bed and bedding is lower quality). The room rates needs to drop by about 35% to be acceptable.

Shit breakfast ”

The bedroom was fine even though they confused the sleeping arrangement and failed to mention I would be in a smaller room after I had paid for it. That was rectified so that’s fine. What I have a problem with is that they had a long menu for breakfast on the tv with such a big variety and when it came to ordering it, they said that’s the old menu and we should look at the other new menu which in the politest way I can say, was absolute shit. I had paid extra for breakfast, I had thought compared to other hotels I have been to, that even if there was a menu , I could ask for extra things such as extra toast or an extra sausage for free. Or I could order more than one thing than an English breakfast and one drink, but no. I have to pay extra for such things after paying additional fee for breakfast. The food wasn’t really that good as well, the sausage was so sickening to look at as well. The best thing was the toast, to be honest. It’s really just a scam of a hotel based in the worst location. I suggest going to another hotel worth the value. It was so bad that I checked out a day early to stay in my sisters’ apartment (which wasn’t serviced) that they had rented for the same duration but had better breakfast than this hotel. It was embarrassing on my behalf as I had brought my friend on this trip paying for a hotel that wasn’t really all that good in general and could see the look of disappointment on her face. I was clearly mistaken. Stay clear of this hotel, thanks

Great little gem of London!”

Great hotel in the heart of Leyton. Minutes from the tube, lots of bus service. The room has a rainfall shower and the bathroom is all marble tile! Nice little extras like coffee and biscuits in your room and a room safe. Clean and very comfortable. The staff is very friendly. The restaurant in the lobby is excellent. People that do not stay at the hotel come for the food. I recommend the full English breakfast & the latte! 5 stars all around!
