This hotel is advertised as being 1 minute from Ilford train station, but it is at least a 10 minute walk along a very run down looking road. Was not at all impressed with Ilford. Also, it is most certainly not a "boutique" hotel. On the plus side, it was quiet during the night & the bed was clean & comfortable, so I did have a good night's sleep until I was awakened by doors banging & building work going on at the back of the hotel early in the morning. My room was tiny & the carpet old fashioned & didn't look very clean. The bathroom was a disgrace as the shower head was covered in black mould & the washbasin had several cracks in it. I was wishing I'd brought a bottle of bleach with me as I had to spend half an hour trying to clean the shower head before using the shower. The wooden toilet seat did not fit the toilet properly & had parts of the white surface missing & cracked which was most unhygienic. Breakfast was inedible & the cook has no idea how to cook scrambled eggs! The dining room was also small & cramped & several people had to wait outside for their breakfast, as there was not room to accommodate everyone at the same time. Although it was cheap for the area, I certainly would not stay there again.
