We were looking for a venue to enjoy a Xmas party for 17 people. And what a great find the Epping Forest Hotel was!! From the initial booking to the actual party, everything was so easy. The staff were so friendly and the event itself was amazing, with great food and disco. We'll definitely be back next year!! Thank you... More

Receptionist pleasant and efficient. Room - main part of the room was nicely decorated although dimly lit. Main problem in this part of the room was the noises coming from the radiator which interrupted sleep. Shower room was small. Cosmetic redecoration with new tiles over old but couldn't hide underlying problems which made it look tatty and not particularly clean.... More

I very rarely write reviews unless something needs to be shared. As a business traveller I enjoy staying in Best Western Hotels as each one definitely has its own charm. This however lacked any charm and appeal. The reception staff were discourteous and everything was too much trouble. Even when I explained that the radiator in the room was sounding... More

Not a good stay here. Arrived Saturday afternoon and no phone or drinks bar in the room so had to go to the bar to order a snack. It was delivered to the room and the chicken wings were burnt. Couldn't phone to complain. Next day had to pay extra for a breakfast that was cold and tasteless. 3 weeks... More

The staff at reception were fine, but everything else was very poor quality. Dreadful entrance, with cheap furniture - more like a hospital A&E. Bed was comfortable, but constant random tapping noise from heating pipes ALL night made sleep impossible. Faulty shower thermostat meant that you were either frozen or scalded in quick succession - and, because of the cramped... More

We stayed one night and the room was pleasant and the staff were helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again. The food in the bar was great and it was good value for money. it was clean throughout.

I don't normally write reviews on these but I feel I have to say something about our experience there last night. We had a family birthday party arranged for about 40 people. It was booked approx 6 weeks ago by my cousin. She had booked the room from 8-12 pm and had paid in advance for a buffet also. She... More

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding reception in the hotel. Having booked early, a special wedding party booking was later announced at a better price and including breakfast. I called the hotel to enquire whether I could be allocated the wedding party rate and was rudely told my booking was non refundable or changeable.... More

I stayed here for 7 nights while away on business. The rooms were very dark with poor lighting which was difficult when trying to do work in the evening.
