4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

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.

Stayed overnight on the Saturday of BBC proms in Hyde Park. Greeted with a lovely smile and very helpful receptionist (lady). Room clean, good sized, room service, large TV, wifi, so far so good. Came back after Hyde Park different receptionist (man) bit grumpy. Bed was superb - I know beds firmness is personal but the times we've stayed at... More

This place looks pretty grotty from the outside. Garish sign, drab building and a closed-looking indian restaurant with boards outside. I had read the reviews and wasn't looking forward to our stay. We were going to a party a few minutes down the road so this was chosen for its location. It became apparent that the hotel is currently being... More

The recent renovations and updates are fantastic! I had stayed here before the renovations and this place needed a good upgrade... Wow! Great place to stay after the upgrades. The staff are very friendly and helpful, breakfast is brilliant!

Have stayed at The Bell a few years ago and was not too happy. After its recent refurbishment, we were very happy with the improved quality and service. Location is great and would definitely recommend

We booked this hotel for its proximity to North Weald. Walked into the lobby and thought it wasn't as bad as the reviews until we realise the reception area is not attached to the hotel. The actual rooms are located to the back of the lobby area and it was dark and gloomy. Extremely outdated. Hotel staff spoken very little... More

Stayed at The Bell for a party. Didn't expect the Ritz but it was grubby and poor. Very tired and outdated. Our pom overlooked a weed infested children's playgroung - the grass was about a foot high. God knows what might be lurking in there. Windows of the corridors overgrown with creeper making the light dim. The reception staff tried... More
