The bed was comfortable, there was a good shower with plenty of hot water and everywhere was very clean. Next door pub serves good food and breakfast is easily available in Loughton itself (5...

Upon arrival i thought this seems like a very fun little place to stay in. Once i opened the door to my room i was disappointed. The toilet flush didn't properly work, the towels were in a bad state, the door couldn't open properly due to the position of the bed, the bed itself was very uncomfortable to sleep in.... More
