We had a recent bereavement in our family and we needed to travel down to London for the funeral. Due to the short notice of the journey we were on a budget. We found this accommodation on Booking.com. As we were staying for two nights we wanted to have some where clean and comfortable as well as affordable and I...

Stayed for the second time along with girlfriends parents this time. Safe free parking and a very handy location make this place perfect for us. It's only a few minutes walk from Stratford tube, rail and bus stations. We spent a couple of hours in the bar Friday night, it was karaoke night and had a great evening mixing with...

Inwas to,d that West Ham fans would be welcome and that it would be fully staffed on match days with pie and mash and burgers on sale in the car park. Well they have fulfilled their promises and...

Great location, easily accessible and ideally named for a rail company Christmas party. The Railway is a long established East End pub that fits well into the nightlife of Stratford and the surrounding areas. Great atmosphere last night. Shame I turned up late and missed the buffet.

The rooms were very good, comfortable, good shower. The pub is a typical London east end but the staff were lovely and the tasty breakfast. Location is perfect. I was there for a conference at the aquatic centre and it was a 10 minute walk tops. Excellent shopping and restaurants 5 minutes walk at the Westfield shopping centre.

Nice little find... clean, tidy, friendly locals ... good for a quick drink & to watch the England match. Stopped off for a quick bit... decent pub grub... better than the prices in Westfield Shopping Centre & a place to sit down & chill out.

Breakfast as all the other food offered is great. Wineprice for a place like london incredible: 9.95 for a bottle of pinot grigio. The staff always friendly and the rooms nice and comfortable.

Stayed one night for Ride London. Got NO sleep whatsoever with the horrendous road noise. Pulled mattress into bathroom as was less noisy there. Imagine having to sleep in a bathroom!

Hi Jacinta you have already published your review on Booking.com because you were unhappy with their response in offering you a discount of 10% and now you have gone ahead with your threat of publishing your version of events in a review. I will answer you how I answered you on the original email and that is honest and truthful....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Railway Tavern Hotel is a small family run establishment, with friendly staff and a welcoming smile every time. We pride ourselves on making each guest feel special, we try to please everyone who stays with us and hope that they will return. Our Hotel was up until 6 years ago our family home, but with the prospect of the Olympics coming to our door we converted to a 9 bedroom hotel with all room offering en-suite facilities. We are ideally situated for easy access to The Excel exhibition centre, Canary Wharf, City Of London, Westfield Shopping Centre and have excellent transport links with all London Airports, City being 20 minutes away. We offer free wifi, parking and a full English breakfast to all our guests. ... more   less
