Cranford Hotel
Ranked #8 of 16 Ilford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 August 2016

STAY AWAY...The room had no windows or ventilation and was like staying in the sweat box that you often see in the movies when punishing a prisionr. I asked for anther room but ws told that the only othr room was even worse. I asked for a refund and was told to email, which I did and they didn't even reply. Fobbed off by bookings.com customer service as well.

Very bad location ,did not feel one bit safe. The staff who were all very helpful and polite were double jobbing. The waitress doubled up as a cleaner , the hotel receptionist doubled up as the barperson so underpaid and overworked I suspect with a boss I'm sure that only cares about profit and no thought for staff.There is no bustling bar as stated on some websites there was nobody there in the evening time at all. The bar is stocked only with the bare essentials water and softdrinks small bottles of wine and no glasses.Paper thin walls ,room doors like wafers with 2 inch gap at bottom so u can hear absolutely everything that happens here! Not impressed!! It was very small room though linen was clean and bathroom was clean.Overall I would not be staying here again.

The double room I booked was too small like the size of a box room . It was too hot in the room even after opening windows and doors . Requested for a fan couple of times but did not provide one . Could not sleep all night .. Only good thing was the breakfast in the morning .

After being double booked at a sister hotel I was relocated the Cranford. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was small and stuffy on the warm nights but clean with a comfortable bed. Bathroom was clean and up to date. Shower was disappointing and a shelf to put a sponge bag would have been useful. Tea and coffee making facilities but TV hanging off the wall. Breakfast is buffet and help yourself. The location is not overly pleasant and certainly not the place to stay for a romantic time. Parking is an issue, front of hotel full of transit vans. However for the location, close to the east end of London and the price, makes this hotel is ideal for anyone working in London and is reluctant to pay top prices. Would I stay again? probably yes.

Room Tip: Bigger rooms are on the first floor.

This along with all other so called hotels in ilford is a glorified doss house full of people down on there luck kicked outta there homes and there last chance is here!!! This is 6 semi detached joined together by rough dodgy builders and turned into a so called hotel which must never have seen building control!!!!!
Paper thin walls obviously not insulated topped off with room doors like wafers with 2 inch gap at bottom so u can hear absolutely everything that happens here!!!!
DO NOT EXPECT A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP!!!! Really this place is built by 60 second makeover and inhabited by animals and no body runs it ascots a cash cow for a hungry owner
