Elmcroft Guest House
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Epping
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We took a room for one night while between two locations. We were made very welcome. Unfortunately Des had sent an email on the day we were travelling asking us to contact him close to our expected time of arrival which we didn't get so had no one there when we arrived but Des was soon there. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We opted for the full English breakfast and this was very good. The bathroom was clean and the shower easy to use. Lovely quiet location. If used as a base for a longer break a car would be useful!

Family of four visiting London athletics. Des made us extremely welcome on arrival. The rooms were excellent with perfect bathroom. There was the odd cobweb in corners and the bedside cups could have been left cleaner but otherwise the facilities were perfect.
Des cooked breakfast for two of us and then volunteered to drive us to Epping tube station. 20 minutes to Stratford station - Olympic Park and Westfield shopping centre then another 20 minutes into central London for less than £10 pp. Taxi back to Guest House was only £5-50!!
For anyone wanting to drve to London and then use Public transport, Elmcroft is perfectly situated. Des was the perfect host and the facilities provided everything we needed.
Would DEFINITELY saty again.

My family and I took 4 rooms at Elmcroft for a wedding we were attending. Des couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. A warm and friendly, no frills service. Great breakfast and banter with Des to boot! Sitting in beautiful land this is a little far out to walk but very peaceful. For horse lovers there were ponies in the fields surrounding! Just a short drive into Epping which has links then straight into London. Epping Forest on your doorstep.

This place is not particularly bad, but there really is very little to recommend about it. The bad points are (as a few other reviews allude to) the cleanliness of the room, and the over-inflated price for the room. It's also kind of in the middle of nowhere - this wasn't really a problem for us, as we went to walk. The owner is very nice, and was attentive. The whole place needs a revamp - the decor is faded, and could do with some new cleaning staff too. Overall a disappointing experience.

I booked on behalf of my elderly parents for my sons wedding. Des was an excellent host. Nothing was too much, he entertained us and made sure everything was done to make my parents stay as easy and comfortable as possible. A friendly patient host. Accommodation first rate.

Stayed at this lovely B&B overnight by myself on my way to London for a GRE test. Des was VERY appropriately friendly and I felt safe and welcome. I sat in the garden and studied for 2 hours. Des brought me a lovely cup of tea, chatted a few moments and left me to study. Excellent choice for a woman on her own :)

Des is absolutely fantastic to work with. An absolute gentlemen. My wife and I stayed 2 restful nights. Order the full English b-fast he offers, it's fantastic & fresh cooked after we'd awaken and came down to the dining area.

Des went out of his way to make sure we had a great stay in Epping & helped us easily get to the Epping Tube station so we could dash in to London to see the sites.

We live a couple hrs away from Epping & just booked another two night stay at Elmcroft & are looking forward to the return visit.
