Banks Hotel Ilford is located in a rather green area of east London, just north of the Docklands and surrounded by parks. Central London is less than an hour away by public transport, meaning that the city's attractions, such as the City of Westminster, Hyde Park, Covent Garden and the London Eye are all fairly accessible. The nearest railway station is Ilford, running through to Liverpool Street, which has underground connections to the Central, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines. Ilford is just a seven minute walk from the hotel. Alternatively, the closest underground station is Gants Hill at a simple 20 minute walk along the Cranbrook Road. It's serviced by the Central Line, providing direct access to central London.
The hotel has its own fully licensed bar as well as a lounge area with satellite television where guests can relax or meet up with other visitors. There is also a 24 hour reception as well as business facilities including a fax machine and internet access.
The hotel has its own private car park complete with security lighting.
All of the rooms at the hotel are en-suites and in-keeping with modern standards. They come with televisions and tea and coffee making facilities, whilst the decor is stylishly reserved.
Breakfast is included in the room price and guests can choose from Continental or Full English.
Guests arriving via the city centre should make their way to Liverpool Street Station, which is on the Central, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines. They should then take the national rail service to Ilford, which takes approximately 15 minutes. From Ilford the hotel is a short walk north along Cranbrook Road (the main road that the station is situated on). Park avenue is the third turning on the right; if you reach Valentines Park you've gone to far.
Guests arriving by car should leave the M25 at Junction 28 and follow the A12 toward central London. After approximately 10 miles guests should turn left at the Gant Hill roundabout and take the left on to Park Avenue after one mile.
