      Beautiful surrounding the gardens were lovely and so was the wheather. If only the a12 could be moved,but nothing is perfect.

      It was close to the wedding venue i attended and the resturant next door was very good.(bartellas)

      The room needed vacuming,there was a great deal of dust in the carpets and the price of a cup of tea £2.25!!!!!!!! No complementry drinking water,

    • Older travelers

      pleasant room

      looking in cupboards to find drinks making tray and hunting for the towels, and the fact that you have put through a debit of 20.10 to my credit card when the bill was paid in full at the end of the stay.

    • Older travelers

      Dining room service good for breakfast. (did not do dinner)

      Some of the carpets a bit tired. They also could do with cleaning - do we clean carpets in the uk or just vac them. Road noise could be a problems for some. Why are hotels obsessed by duvet on the bed - they are ridiculous and nearly always too hot - we have to request a change after 1 uncomfortable night. All hotels - back to sensible sheets and blanket soon!!! (I had asked for twin and we got double -they changed it - lack of attention to detail but important for us)

    • Older travelers
      4.2

      For £110 for one night, I thought our room was not worth half that, it was dark and dingy, and for the amount of money we paid we would expect breakfast included, but when checkingout we had to pay extra £27. we were extreamly disappointed.

    • Single

      The Hotel is very well situated for easy access to Chelmsford by car. The Decoration is of high standard and all the facilities are very clean. The hotel seems to be aimed at Weddings and Events and some business travellers. All in all a nice location to stay.

      The £90 including breakfast is a little bit on the high side for a hotel outside of London.

    • Older travelers

      Easy access, quiet surroundings, fast check in, comfortable room, well equipped

    • Older travelers

      Clean, up to date hotel which was very comfortable. The staff were all friendly, efficient and welcoming as well as providing good food, well presented.

    • Couple
      6.6

      Room was clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Quiet location but easy access to main routes.

      No tea and coffee making facilities in room. Room was too hot, and whole hotel had heating up too high. Bathroom could do with updating and some maintenance, ie,windows and shower screen. Breakfast okay but somewhat expensive, for what we paid for room, breakfast could have been included in that cost, as room was pretty standard.

    • Family with children
      7.4

      Pleasant staff. Rooms fine. Bar food good.

      Noisy machinery outside window. Too warm. Surprised to discover our bar bill was increased by 10% service charge.

    • Family with children
      7.4

      The room was clean with plenty of cupboard and drawer space. Staff were friendly and helpful.

      We were attending a wedding at the venue so it was convenient

      I was really shocked at the price which I thought was absolutely exorbitant. The price we paid for 3 of us in one room for one night was expensive plus we were charged an extra (high) price for an average breakfast. I also requested being allowed to check in before the published check in time of 3pm (which I think is late anyway) so that we could use the room to change for the 1pm wedding we were attending at the venue and was told this would cost a further £25. The entire wedding was being held at the hotel so they were already making a significant sum from the wedding party, very high bar prices and a number of people staying overnight, a concession to allow us earlier access to the rooms to change would have been a nice gesture.
