Incredibly basic, a little tired, smelt like someone may have once upon a time smoked in there, carpet a bit wet by the door, staff friendly enough and called me to check my arrival time, I think because they wanted to go home, but were sweet to me when I got there a bit late.

For those of you that want the earth for £60 a night, this is probably not the place for you, but for those who want a lovely quiet little stay, with lovely staff, clean rooms and amazing fresh coffee from the onsite cafe, this is definitely the place for you. Your £60 will get you a warm comfy stay, a...

I am happy to advise that previous (bad) reports on the Rooms at the Forest now seem unfounded. I understand that there is now new management and hopefully this is what is making a difference. I had cause to book a 2-day stay at The Rooms at the Forest, at very short notice (less than 4 hours) as a result...

Excellent quiet location - under 50 mins from central London via taxi & tube, just off the M25 and only £60 for a double room overnight. 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...
