The location is great for North London and then getting into Essex if needed. Pleasant surroundings of Epping Forest, and only 10 minutes from the M25.
The reception, bar and restaurant area are pleasant enough, with comfy seating and TV's available for viewing the football in the bar area. I ate in the bar area and the food was good quality, generous portions and the pricing represented excellent value. The drinks were a little on the pricey side, so just watch what you order.
My room was of an acceptable standard, with a comfy bed,TV, tea and coffee making facilities. I would have slept well apart from the constant knocking from the hot water pipes and radiators that kept me awake. I requested a change of room, and this was sorted for me straight away to the opposite side of the hotel where the plumbing was either newer or hadn't got a problem with it.
Breakfast was a self-serve buffet, a relatively small choice of items but they were well cooked and tasty. Checkout was quite slow and I would have expected there to be a member of staff on the front desk at all times between 7am-9am. I waited 10 minutes for someone to appear, but when they did they were very apologetic and looked after me very well so maybe there had been a problem she was dealing with?
Overall, I would probably stay here again given the price (£60 B&B) and the location, but would make sure to request a room that had been refurbished
