Cheap(ish) Cheerful. Clean. Not nicely situated or special feeling but bed was comfy, room spacious and clean. Although desk staff had a slightly Fawlty Towers feeling....friendly but scatty! :) I'd stay here again if needed. And their blackout curtains are brilliant!

We visited Epping and came here for the luxury afternoon tea. It was scrumptious and plentiful. Deliciously fresh and well presented. We were served by Angela who was extremely attentive and friendly. We came away very satisfied and full. Much recommended.

Great location and whilst certain members of staff were wonderful and very helpful. Shame the others didn't follow suit. There was no Maintenance Staff on site to fix any problems and the Deputy Manager and Manager of the Hotel just didn't exist! After a fabulous evening in Epping we arrived back to our room to find that the door sensor... More

Had a wonderful time with sisters and our mum as a girly night away. Good price, nice rooms. Only problem, when booking no option to add breakfast, went to have breakfast and one lady was rude because We hadn't booked and paid for it. We were happy to have it added to our room! Good breakfast though, not to much... More

I have 2 major complaints! 1) The matress was so unbeliveably hard, it was honestly the worst matress I have ever slept on & the worst nights sleep I have ever had! 2) my boyfiend described the bathroom as 'somthing out of world war II!' The ceramic round the bath was peeling off and the bathroom was in a sorry... More

After an horrendous journey because of a M11 incident we arrived at the Bell 15 minutes later than our booking, only to be told by the bemused receptionist that according to her records we had already arrived?, after a embarrassing wait she showed us to a table in reception and asked if we would like some tea, and said she...

The hotel staff were all very nice and helpful. the room had what i needed for a one night stay the children playground is a bit of an eye sore and no children would be safe on it. Hotel could do with a bit of update.

Cutting a long story short some of our very good friends got married not far away and a long time before pre booked rooms out for guests so we all had accomodation booked. We couldn't check in before 2pm unless paid a £20 charge so thought would check in when back from wedding reception. Lo and behold when we tried... More

over priced hotel, not clean and staff inexperienced. Breakfast was the worst we've ever had - dirty table, dirty cutlery, bread had been defrosted, supposed to be full English breakfast but no bacon or mushrooms! When complained waitress brought out two saucers of microwaved bacon and mushrooms which we sent back! Tea/coffee was from a water canister which wasn't hot!... More

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
