Arrived at the hotel and was greeted by the receptionist who was nice & polite. She gave us the keys and directed us to the room. Good start.
We expected a small double room, but was pleasantly surprised with a family room on the ground floor. Clean and tidy, and quite comfortable.
However, due to the location of the room (beside the entrance and dining room) we heard every noise, creaking & slamming of doors, and staff constantly walking about, which resulted in a restless night for us.
The view from our window was a back yard with wood and other stuff just thrown about. (as we were only there for one night this didn't bother us, but I thought it could have at least looked tidy).
Breakfast was self service (except for the cooked English breakfast) but the waiting staff were rude. There was no "good morning, please or thank you". When the waitress came to take our order, she just stood there saying nothing.
We handed our key in but still no "thank you for staying, how was your stay" etc etc, the receptionist (man) didn't even get up from his desk or say a word, he just looked over.

The park is well known for its old English garden, the Rosary Terrace and its lakes. The hotel is ideally placed for all public transport - a few minutes' walk from Central London Line Underground, Gants Hill, and British Rail, Ilford stations (twenty minutes to Central London).
