Myself, Doggy and partner have just walked through the door after a lovely weekend at Elmcroft Guest House. It was such a great place that I just had to write a review while it's all still fresh in my mind. Des and his daughter Katie made sure our stay was as easy as possible. We took our six month old...

This B&B was nice enough with clean and comfortable rooms. It is located a couple of miles from Epping, so keep that in mind if you want an evening meal. The continental breakfast was self-serve; a cooked breakfast was not included. The price (78 pounds) was too high for a basic B&B without a full breakfast. Nice owners.

Des was very accomodating and especially keen to advise us to book taxis for a wedding we were going to in the local area. However, the whole place is tired, dated, slightly grubby and in need of a renovation. It's like a homage to the 1980s. Felt quite aggrieved at paying £7 for a fry up when it should really... More

We stayed for a one night stopover while working in Epping. Des couldn't have been more helpful or obliging. The rooms are clean and have superb views. for those who like horses there are plenty to see on the fields beside the house. it is convenient with plenty of parking. We will certainly stay again

We took a room for one night while between two locations. We were made very welcome. Unfortunately Des had sent an email on the day we were travelling asking us to contact him close to our expected time of arrival which we didn't get so had no one there when we arrived but Des was soon there. The room was... More

Family of four visiting London athletics. Des made us extremely welcome on arrival. The rooms were excellent with perfect bathroom. There was the odd cobweb in corners and the bedside cups could have been left cleaner but otherwise the facilities were perfect. Des cooked breakfast for two of us and then volunteered to drive us to Epping tube station. 20... More

My family and I took 4 rooms at Elmcroft for a wedding we were attending. Des couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. A warm and friendly, no frills service. Great breakfast and banter with Des to boot! Sitting in beautiful land this is a little far out to walk but very peaceful. For horse lovers there were ponies in... More

This place is not particularly bad, but there really is very little to recommend about it. The bad points are (as a few other reviews allude to) the cleanliness of the room, and the over-inflated price for the room. It's also kind of in the middle of nowhere - this wasn't really a problem for us, as we went to... More
