The guest house is a little tired decorwise but this is more than made up for by the warm welcome you receive from the owner Des. Nothing is too much trouble for him. You are left to your own devices for the continental breakfast but everything you needq was there and perhaps it wouldn't suit some people we had no... More

Where do I begin? This place was perfection from start to finish. I have read the 4 terrible reviews that were posted by the same person with a personal vendetta against the owner and felt that after a fantastic stay, I had to counter the unfair posts that should not even be on this website. The house and the surrounding... More

This was a very last minute booking, On arrival seeing that the decrepit sign was hanging off and hidden by an overgrown elderberry bush at the entrance and noticing that one of the drive lights was broken and taped over with a plastic bag wasn't expecting much. Des was friendly enough although doesn't come across as the Consummate Host. The... More

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
