This is a tired looking grey building. The corridoors are drab too. Inside though, its quite nice. The staff are very pleasant, and the beer and food are quite good. Much better than first impressive. The reception and bar/restaurant area are very airy. The rooms are quiet, with excellent blackout curtains. Doors do reverberate a bit. I wish my neighbour...

Been to this hotel on several occasions for business trip. Decor a little tried. Trying to staff the place with minimal staff. Took 20 mins to get served at the bar then a further 15 mins to order food, which when it did arrive was ok.

Stayed for a night as we were catching up with my son for a family weekend. It is on the outskirts of Walthamstow and just outside South Woodford.
