A very basic bed and breakfast, with a beautiful garden and parking. OK if happy with a basic room and a help yourself breakfast offering toast and fruit. Epping centre is only 10 mins drive and has plenty of places to enjoy a meal. Epping train station has easy parking and offers central line into London. Good value for a... More

Greeted by Des who was very attentive. He showed us around and advised us that anything extra we needed was available outside our room. We brought our dog, wire Fox terrier, and he supplied a box for him to stay. It was too cramped for him to get in so he slept on the floor. The room was two single... More

The hotel situated in a very hand area for motorways, Stanstead airport, and Epping forest, the hotel service is excellent nothing too much and very courteous service I do recommend this hotel and will very likely stay at this hotel again One thing need addressing is the mail road sign it is not visible from the main road

Had a lovely night's stay at Elmcroft Guest House - the room had an en suite with plenty of towels, a television and coffee/tea making facilities. A continental breakfast was included in the price (full breakfast available at extra charge) and set us up nicely for the journey into London. Our host, Des, very kindly dropped us off at the...

Great place to stay as a base for visits to Epping Forest. Very nice room with a comfortable bed and a shiny new bathroom. Lovely green view to fields with horses. Although the road is nearby, there was no noise problems. Excellent welcome and advice on daytrips from the host, Des. We would definitely consider a revisit.

We stayed here overnight to attend a party nearby and were very pleased indeed. A very warm welcome, a substantial continental breakfast and very clean rooms with modern bathrooms! We would be returning late but code to get into the house and all so easy. Just a mile off the motorway making it very easy access indeed! Half the price... More

The guest house is a little tired decorwise but this is more than made up for by the warm welcome you receive from the owner Des. Nothing is too much trouble for him. You are left to your own devices for the continental breakfast but everything you needq was there and perhaps it wouldn't suit some people we had no... More

Where do I begin? This place was perfection from start to finish. I have read the 4 terrible reviews that were posted by the same person with a personal vendetta against the owner and felt that after a fantastic stay, I had to counter the unfair posts that should not even be on this website. The house and the surrounding... More

This was a very last minute booking, On arrival seeing that the decrepit sign was hanging off and hidden by an overgrown elderberry bush at the entrance and noticing that one of the drive lights was broken and taped over with a plastic bag wasn't expecting much. Des was friendly enough although doesn't come across as the Consummate Host. The... More
