my brother and I stayed there for one night at the end of July. We were a bit apprehensive as we had not been there before..but it was really good. Our twin room was very clean and very well equipped...The downsides were...we arrived about 9.30in the evening and we waited about 15 minutes at reception before anyone came to book... More

This is the best hotel in the area. I work all over the world and am very fussy about where I stay and how much I pay. I have to get value for money and be comfortable.This hotel ticks all the boxes. The staff are young and inexpeirienced but they are nice people and need encouraging. Rooms are clean and... More

Next room tv did not work and the heated towel rail burning hot, the room was boiling! Third room (by now 10.30 and children tired, hot and... More

The staff at the hotel were useless, not helpful and unprofessional. The room was ok but can't believe that this sort of hotel doesn't serve lunch! No good for an elderly person on their own. The walk to the room was outrageously long for an elderly woman. It also took over and hour and a half to check in.

I stayed recently overnight for work. First impressions were poor with lots of builders rubble and general junk deposited around a site which gives a derelict appearance [see photos]. The staff were friendly and breakfast adequate. The accommodation was dated and tired and the children's play area like a jungle [see photo]. I would not stay again.

Stayed here over night with my mum visiting family. We stayed in a room in a separate building to the hotel as its on ground level and easier access for my mother. The rooms are very basic but the bedding is clean. The rooms are dated and need decorating. The bathroom needs renewing with mold starting to appear on the... More

Beautiful Epping with its forest and lovely high street, sorely let down by this eye sore of a hotel. Entrance is covered in weeds and the ugly modern annexe looks tired and run down. It was once a beautiful house so hopefully one day someone will return it to its former glory and knock down the horrible extension and annexe.... More

We stayed overnight in a Superior room and were a little early to check in. Angela the very pleasant and helpful receptionist telephoned housekeeping and said our room was just being finished off. We were in fact 1hour and half early. My husband and I were off to a wedding at Gaynes Park and had ordered a taxi. Angela phoned... More
