Stayed overnight for an event in Epping. £55 bought us a clean room,clean towels,T.V,radio/alarm kettle and tea/coffee..It served it`s purpose although the bed wasn`t the greatest comfort we have experienced but can`t complain,£55 for a double and room for the dog`s bed too,(obviously we brought our dog).Would stay there again should we need it for a night,

I am very surprised after reading the review as I booked a room for my girlfriend who has never stayed at the Motel and had nothing but to say how amazing and lovely the stay was. Amazingly clean , room was very spacious, strong shower and good parking facilities and above all it was very cheap. I enquired around Epping... More

Upon arrival i thought this seems like a very fun little place to stay in. Once i opened the door to my room i was disappointed. The toilet flush didn't properly work, the towels were in a bad state, the door couldn't open properly due to the position of the bed, the bed itself was very uncomfortable to sleep in.... More

When a taxi driver laughs when you tell them when you’re staying then you know you may have made a mistake. Forest lodge was recommended for its location to an event i was going to and i would say that was the best thing about it. The staff were either rude or had no clue what was going on the... More

This place is appalling! Don’t ever stay here. On arrival the receptionist seemed dazed and confused- without a clue what we were paying, where our booking was and what day of the week it was! Slightly worrying when we had confirmed the booking several times. On arrival to the room- the receptionist knocked on the door and in her words... More

The room was basic and the toilet flush was broken so we had to put our hand inside the top of the system, towels were all ripped and dirty. Our friends also had exactly the same problem in their room. Gave card details over the phone to reserve the room, and although we paid on arrival I have had money... More

I loved the sleeping in a stable thing. Great location, clean, pleasant staff. Had benches scattered around for your morning tea in the sunshine! We went for family wedding and they let us check in early so we could freshen up before going. I think some times people expect too much.

Great budget hotel, was clean, cheap and a great location. Would definately stop there again. Even had free Wifi, what more can you ask for for £55 :-) we didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that as had to leave very early
