Reception seemed to be overrun. The poor receptionist seemed to be left on her own with unexplained parameters laid down by the manager. Consequently it was "I'll have to talk to my manager about that" for most things. Couldn't book a taxi apparently (none available) but we booked one in 5 minutes. (Elite taxis should you be in the area... More

My 10 yr old and I stay here when visiting family in Epping as we don't have many other choices. We are disappointed every time. The key issuing computer was broken meaning we had no key for our room on arrival, the staff took us to our room which was not made up and grubby. Returning later that evening (... More

Stopped here to go to a weeding reception a few of miles away. The room we had was a reasonable size and looked like it needed an overhaul, sink had great big cracks in it, but on the whole it was clean, the bed wasn't that comfortable though. The guy on night duty was very helpful chatty and very polite.... More

Can I start this email by saying I stay in hotels every weekend from cheap to expensive and my stay at The Bell Hotel in Epping last night (11/06/2015) was the worst experience start to finish I have ever had in any hotel. I will say despite the outside looking run down and old (wooden struts outside holding the lean... More

Arrived to the lady on reception saying our booking did not exist. Manager had confirmed by email my booking. Lady very helpful and told us to take a seat in the dining room. Room very dull with no atmosphere as we were the only ones there. Lady from reception then returned to say she will get the kitchen to sort... More

I used this hotel for the one night as I was meeting friends for a drink and meal who lived local. I was looking for a bugetish hotel but my preferred options ( Premier Inn etc ) were too far. This hotel was horrendous. My room was on an extension part which was like an old school type building. The... More

Stayed here for on night on business, I needed to bring a car down to London and it's close to Epping tube station. Rom was good standard with a comfortable bed and a bath which is a benefit. Bathroom was a bit old and fittings weren't the best but apart from that it was fine. Only real problem was noise... More

We stayed here for one night after a wedding a Blake Hall which is just a stones throw away. Hotel let down by the fact that you cannot get even a soft drink at the hotel. Not good when you are slightly hungover the next morning! I'd recommend as a place to get your head down If attending a function... More

I normally stay at better quality hotels, but this is the only one in Epping. The room was ok, but a bit tired. The view outside the window was a full skip that had been there a while. The service was ok, the cooked breakfast had been there a while and everything was dried out and hard. All in all... More
