“Basic but clean and tidy”
I had to find a last minute hotel room for my student son in London whose regular accomodation was unexpectedly unavailable for one night. I booked him at the Cranbrook Hotel because it was very good value and, as it was only one night, it seemed adequate. Here's my son's feedback: "Hey thankyou for the room last night, it was absolutely fine, very clean and tidy. It was a bit far from the center of the city but a train took me there very quickly. " Based on his experience, he would recommend it to young people in similar circustances or people looking for clean, basic accomodation during a short stay in London and not exepecting anything beyond that. I would recomend it to parents in similar circustances to ours (though, of course, I haven't actually seem the accomodation). My son also mentioned that the staff were extremely welcoming and polite.
“It was great!”
We had a lot of fun. There is a lot of shop with in walking distance and there is a really cute park directly infront of the hotel.
“good value budget hotel”
I booked this hotel with 2 friends. It was a compromise option as 1 friend wanted to stay in a hostel and we 2 preferred a hotel. The price was as cheap as a hostel but with all the facilities you would expect of a hotel room. It's a good option if you want to visit London on a budget. Just 20 minutes train ride to the centre (Liverpool Street), comfortable rooms, though not luxurious of course - you get what you pay for! and a decent enough breakfast included. The staff were friendly enough. I'd stay there again.
“Nice but it can be improved”
It was a nice hotel. It was clean. It had nice staff. A railstation was close to it what was convenient but still it is like 30 minute to downtown London.The building its kind of old and there are things that can be improved like the bathroom. There's no lift so it's better if you travel light. The neighborhood was nice and seemed pretty safe.
“Needs a little updating but otherwise clean and accommodating!”
I was not sure what to expect when I booked this hotel. The reviews were mixed. I'm happy to say that our stay was a good one. We stayed there 8 days and were quite happy. Everyone who works there is very helpful and nice. Anything we needed, they were more than happy to provide - extra pillows, a hairdryer, a taxi reservation - they were all more than willing to help. The smoke alarm went off one night but that was because people were smoking and weren't supposed to be. We had four people in one room and had plenty of room. The breakfast provided is a traditional English breakfast but you didn't have to order the whole thing. You could just get eggs if that's all you wanted. There was also cereal, juice, fruit, amongst other items. We did not go hungry! The neighborhood was great! Every store we stopped in, we were greeted with helpful, good-natured people. We walked through the town at various times of the day and did not feel unsafe. Some of the stores closed earlier than expected, about 6 or 7 p.m., but that seems to be something that happens in England. The train station was about a 10 minute walk away and was easy to find. If I have anything negative to say it would only be that there were no laundry facilities on-site and that the hotel needs some updating, but if you want a decent place to stay and you're on a budget, this is a good choice.
A little off the beaten path, but a warm courteous staff is responsive to your needs.
The hotel is good for this cheap price. Stuff was very kind and there were no problems at all. I stayed only for two nights and couldn't try the breakfast (which was included in the price), but my girlfriend told me it was good. The neighborhood is nice, very clean and tidy. The location seems to be awful, because it's far from the center of London, and the nearest underground station is 2km far. But there are lots of buses which take you there for less then 5 minutes and the whole trip to the center takes less then an hour (let's say it an hour). If you don't have big expectations and don't want to spend much money for hotel, this is the right place for you. I would definitely go back there.
I was looking for cheap accommodation, so I didn't expect much... but hotel has everything what should has in this price, staff was very nice and breakfast was good.
We found the hotel spot on for the money that we paid ,staff were brilliant and very helpful ,would def go again
