Reviewed 25 April 2017

Because I wanted to visit friends and family in the area, this hotel was my choice for four nights this Spring, and it turned out to be an excellent choice! Small yet well situated for transportation on the tube to London and really close to restaurants, coffee shops, banks and grocery stores. The room (#10) was delightful - spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, nice bathroom with lots of towels and a heated towel rack ( a novelty for this Canadian) so I always had a warm towel when stepping out of the shower! This room is on the top floor and there is no elevator - so climbing two flights of stairs may not be for the faint hearted! I do suggest that you check what floor your room will be on before confirming your stay.

The staff are simply wonderful - helpful yet unobtrusive - from the morning breakfast staff to the office staff who handle check in - nothing is too much trouble. One evening I didn't want to go and eat in a restaurant on my own, so (on their advice) I walked to the Turkish restaurant close by, collected take out, and when I returned they had laid a place setting for me at a table in the bar so I could eat my evening meal in comfort.

I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable stays I have experienced ( even though I was staying on my own). It was such a pleasure to find this small family run hotel expertly run - and to find that everyone at Packfords really cares about offering a professional yet very personal service to their guests.

Room Tip: No elevator but don't let this put you from staying at Packfords. There are rooms on the ground...

We chose Packfords for our wedding party, as we wanted the celebration locally, and live nearby. The planning service was excellent, as was the communication with the venue (via Mel, our planner). Admittedly we didn't have that many complicated demands, but anything we asked for was facilitated without any fuss at all.
On the day itself, the event ran seamlessly - We didn't have to worry about anything at all, and the service and friendliness of the staff was commented on by several guests. We chose 'bowl food' as an option, and no one went home hungry.
All the guests who chose to stay were delighted with the standard of the accommodation, and the breakfast the following morning was enjoyable,with plenty of choice.
I'd recommend the venue to anyone planning an event, formal or informal. I may even return for my 50th....

Room Tip: All rooms have different features (roll top bath, ground floor access for example) - There is also a...

We had our joint 70th birthday celebration here with about 40 guests and the organisation,service and the food (and choice of it) was superb.All the guests commented on the hotel and the setting.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves too feeling very relaxed throughout.
10 out of 10 to Mel and all the staff!

My company put me up here for a week's work in Woodford Green. The hotel is just short walk, less than half a mile, from Woodford Underground station. The place looks nice, clean and tidy and well kept. My ground floor bedroom looked out into the small car park but it had blinds so that was no problem.

Nice quiet area at night with very little traffic. Cooked breakfasts were great with big, thick rashers of bacon and proper sausages. A decent Americano would make it even better.

We stayed at Packfords whilst we went for a meal at Sheesh as it was the closest hotel that was not a typical chain. The hotel was nice enough but no "wow" factors. I'd just say you get what you pay for with a £120 room. We stayed in their king room apartment - it was cosy and the bed was comfy. The bathroom needs to be sorted so that the hot water doesn't burn you as soon as you turn the tap!

You can park at the front of the hotel for free (although there are only 5/6 spaces) but we never had a problem as there were only a few rooms booked out when we stayed.

The staff are friendly. The breakfast was just a normal breakfast, nothing stand out.

Overall a nice hotel, in a convenient location if you just need a quick stopover.
