Okay so I'll admit to finding this Best Western Plus hotel as a consequence of wanting to use my BA Avios points, which were due to expire shortly. I had a bus driving experience booked at North Weald Airfield in nearby Epping over the weekend, and the location and ability to book with Avios made this an absolutely ideal choice!
That said, once at the hotel we quickly realised we were also only 5 miles drive away from the huge shopping centre at Westfield, Stratford, and nearby Olympic Park. So we made the most of our trip with a shopping and dining experience there. What's not to like - free parking and only five miles from Westfield?
The hotel itself doesn't look amazing from the outside BUT don't let that put you off. The inside has been refurbished and looks great, especially around the lobby, bar and dining area. Our family room was okay for the four of us (our two daughters sharing a double-pull out sofa bed) for our one night, but might feel a bit of a squeeze for longer stays. Otherwise the room was comfortable and included a TV, Android tablet/phone, in-room safe, and tea/coffee facilities and biscuits. The breakfast buffet was fine at £7 a head for adults and free for the children.
A good stay, clean and comfortable and well located. less
