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

This hotel is in a prime location but lacks the visual appeal to attract customers. To be fair though they seem to be making an effort as there seems to be some modernisation taking place. The rooms are the part being modernised and we booked a Superior room for four nights. The room was very clean and the bathroom newly... More

I consider the poor reviews for this Hotel to be quite unfair. The Bell is a pretty standard business type stay Hotel, that you could stay in all over the country within a a town situation. The rooms are completely adequate for a 1 or 2 night stay. The rooms are well decorated and have all the expected services. Again... More

We went to the Bell for afternoon tea using a voucher. For £6.95 we had a pot of tea giving about 5 cups, 3 sandwiches - not the usual fingers - and four fresh scones with cream and jam. Served by the very pleasant and friendly Angela in the bar area. The sandwiches were freshly made and the tea was... More

I stayed at this hotel during my brothers wedding celebrations with my Wife. We paid £100 for 1 night which included breakfast. The room was cleanish and the standard of the room was ok. The downsides were that the fire alarm went off at 3.50am waking my wife and I up. Also the hotel is in between 2 nightclubs so... More

Stayed here for two nights over the weekend. It is a great location for both getting into London and walking in Epping Forest. As mentioned by other reviewers I found the hotel to be clean, well presented and have everything you need. Its not 5 star luxury, but for the price you pay it is a very good standard and... More

Friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable beds, great value Indian restaurant within hotel. Great venue for exploring Epping Forest and not far from the Lee Valley Venue for white water rafting. Will definitely go back.

Only chose the bell hotel for its proximity to epping forest and easy access to central London on the tube but the hotel experience itself was very comfortable- good sized rooms, clean, recently renovated. There's also an Indian restaurant on site which was great. Breakfast was good. Overall pleased.
