Reviewed 8 August 2009

I booked a room here in July, and was denied entry, told "I have a terrible attitude" and threatened with a mugging on my way out. The only plausible reason I can think of for being given this treatment was my ethnicity.

Stay away from this place - you will be all the more happier and safer for it.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for night and that was too long. We were told the room was ensuite it was not, it had a toilet and sink. The carpets were all stained, the furniture looked like it came out of the ark. The only good thing I could say that the bed linen was clean. This hotel needs complete modernisation. Breakfast was included in the price but we did not fancy eating there. We only seen one of the staff and then is when we booked in.

I stayed for a second time at this hotel and can confirm that the manager's response to my previous review is accurate. Many of the rooms have been updated since my last stay, and the remainder appeared to be in the process of redecoration while I was there.
As before, I stayed in a basic single though this time it had new furniture and fittings. As before the £33 price included a good breakfast, tea and coffee making facilities (including biscuits) and a full size TV.
The hotel remains one of the best value places to stay in London and its relative proximity to South Woodford Tube Station makes it feasible for those on a break as well as for business visitors. I would suggest, though, that some holiday visitors might find the breakfast times of 7 to 8.30 a little early.
