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

I say in a lot of Best Western hotels for business. The Bell was not up to the standards I normally get. My room wss tatty, worn and tired and the bed very lumpy. The positive was the staff who were all cheerful, helpful and friendly. Had a recommendation in the restaurant of a fish curry which was also very... More

I used this hotel during a business trip in the London area. The location is great just a few miles away from the undergroud to London centre. The hotel itselve is fine. From the outside it looks a bit old and run down but the inside is absolutely fine. The staff is very nice, rooms are spacious, wifi works good.... More

We use this hotel for work, but I have to say I think I may be changing this. After checking in at 10pm I asked for a iron and ironing board but they suggested they would deliver it at 8am prompt in the morning. After numerous phone calls it arrived nearly an hour late. Not only making me late for... More

I am not a regular with Best Western, in fact this stay was the first in many years. I was greeted well by the male receptionist at check in, having a full explanation of the hotel and it's facilities. The room was acceptable ( what do you expect for £89) with an abundance of hot water, good TV screen and... More

Afraid we didn't enjoy the experience. The rooms didn't feel clean, the shower didn't work - which we discovered too late to change rooms if we were going to make our appointment as planned which was a big inconvenience. Disappointed we were offered only 50% discount for this instead of a full refund like any reputable hotel chain would have... More
