Barely slept due to lack of curtains. We went to reception at 4.30am to ask to change rooms but the alternative room was the same. Spoke to owners at check-out who told us not to come back if we didn't like it there, saying it's Summer so it's light! Customer service was non-existent.
Breakfast was a bun-fight with only 5 tables for more than 30 rooms.
Although the room rate is cheap, there is no point staying somewhere where you can't sleep and where they don't care.

  • Liked — car parking was included
  • Disliked — no curtains over top window so not able to sleep once the sun rose.

Went into hotel reception and booked 2 nights, asked to see the room first which they happily obliged to. We booked on the spot. Checked in next morning, the guest decided to stay on in the room we had looked at, yet alternative was even better. We were given one of the apartments in a converted house at the back. (Included Twin Bed, Bathroom, Lounge, Kitchen. Lounge was clean new and nicely decorated and was the kitchen. The twin bed room was spacious, nicely decorated with antique pine laminate flooring. Everything was very clean and comfortable, The decor was fresh and neutral. The bathroom was beautifully done and very spacious with a fantastic power shower (in all rooms). Even though it was in a seperate building to the back of the hotel, it was very safe and secure. Other twin and double ensuite rooms were in a 2 storey annex attached to the hotel building within the hotels secured gated car park. The hotel had a comfy and welcoming bar with a huge screen tv, drinks were very reasonably priced (and not London prices). Dining/breakfast room was nice and clean. The breakfast was very filling, tasted great, and kept you going until lunch. As we were on a business trip we were able to connect laptop to wireless internet . The staff were very very friendly and helpful and ensured that you enjoyed a comfortable stay. Would definately stay again. Turn right out of hotel and a 10 min walk up Romford Road to Leisure Centre, a 20 minute walk will get you to Stratford Shopping centre, which has all the main shops, amenities and buses etc.

  • Liked — It was comfy, clean and friendly
  • Disliked — Immediate Area, yet fine 10 mins walk up to Stratford shop centre

Three of us stayed at the Forestview during a recent tradeshow at EXCEL and were seduced by the (for London) relatively cheap price - and ended up paying a other ways. It is located in what seems a really rough area of East London. It isn't that convenient for EXCEL, there are no restaurants close by and you definitly wouldn't want to be out on the street by yourself at night. If your idea of a good hotel is to have an environmental health officer in your room at 1.30 in the morning to asses the noise from next door's night club then this is place for you. Two nights running unbelievable noise came from next door and only when complaining the second night at 11.30pm an alternative room was offered. The fact that one of my colleagues was locked into her bathroom for 30 minutes because the lock fell of the door (and despite promises from the hotel it did not get fixed throughout our stay) seemed like a minor issue by comparison. Otherwise it was slightly worn around the edges but clean with a very uninspiring breakfast.
