I am a wheelchair user so I contacted Best Western directly before booking with this Hotel to make sure there was a disabled accessible room with twin beds. The booking centre contacted the hotel on my behalf to confirm the one room left showing on Booking.com would be suitable. I was informed that this did not have a disabled accessible... More

This hotel is very nice, The room was clean and very spacious, Free Wi-Fi included. The buffet Breakfast was good although could have been hotter, Maybe putting smaller amounts out more frequently would be better. fairly good choice of evening meals and there is an indian restaurant attached as well.

Easy to find, plenty of parking, reasonable rates, friendly staff and not a bad breakfast. We dont have many opportunities to stay in Epping. A family birthday caused this stay. Booked through one of the on-line retailers was slightly cheaper than direct. Booking was not a problem though and they have plenty of rooms. We have stayed in plenty of... More

We booked this place as it was the nearest to Gaynes park hotel for a wedding. The lady on reception was pleasant enough. Room was clean and tidy. But the lamps around the room were coming away from the wall, so a little tlc needed. But the massive down side was that at 3.30am, 4.30am and again at 4.45am my... More

This hotel was reasonably clean but you had to sign in and then walk out the back, outside, to another block for your rooms in true Motel style. Rooms were dated, scruffy, but like others, the beds were actually clean and comfortable. Furniture and fittings were dated and in some cases needed repair or a lick of paint. The bath... More

I booked a superior room and the actual room was quite OK, reasonably clean and a comfortable bed. Overall though in my opinion the hotel offers poor value for money, the breakfast is terrible and colleagues who ate an evening meal at the hotel said they wouldn't be repeating the experience. The bar area lacks any atmosphere, thankfully though there... More

My friend, a wheelchair user, had looked at this hotel for a trip into London, and rang Central Reservations to enquire about accessibility. She was told that a ground floor room would be accessible, although the bathroom would not. As my friend can't walk very far, she accepted this. There were no twin-bedded rooms available, but there was a sofa... More

We stayed one night and were disappointed with the hotel - Best Western usually confers a standard. The room was clean and bed comfortable but the hotel was depressing with smoking zones at the entry to accommodation, skips and neglected grounds. Cooked breakfast is usually a highlight of a night away but we were not tempted by the food on... More

Stayed at the hotel two weeks ago with my wife and I wasn`t disappointed. Very clean rooms, the beds are comfortable and I was surprised of how friendly the staff is. I went to have dinner with my wife on Monday evening and there were two girls, Alina and Fiorentina if I am not mistaken, that were kind to help... More
