I would guess that this hotel was built in 1986 and the rooms were styled by an American. Awful fake marble washbowl and brushed gold effect power sockets... It has not been updated since and frankly, they need to be bulldozed or flame thrower'd. That said, the meal I had in the restaurant was excellent and the people friendly. I... More

A very enjoyable 4 night break combining a family visit with a mini holiday. The hotel is very conveniently situated just yards from the A12, yet peacefully located in its own grounds - wild rabbits outside our window every day ! Everything you would expect from a "Best Western" in terms of comfort, facilities etc., and 2 minor niggles were... More

It seems that if your going to stay at a Best Western hotel you are going to go back in time. Its like stepping on to the Titanic. Everything is dated, a little worn even threadbare. Our room was large, clean. The furniture was new in 1970. The wardrobe door broken. TV flatscreen but very small. Tea & coffee the... More

We stayed here for a re-union weekend, so the main thing was about our group being together. Our room was clean and the towels changed regularly, even though we did not put them in the bath. The staff however, are very mixed in knowledge and ability. We saw some friends in the corridor but later when we asked for their... More

Me & my husband stayed here for two nights, so that we could 'get away from it all'. We visited constable country, Colchester zoo & Freeport Braintree. All of which were in fairly close proximity to the hotel. The hotel itself was lovely, very relaxed & quiet. The room itself was clean & the bed was really comfy. We didn't... More

I've stayed here several times over the years and despite the relatively low score, it would still be my first choice in the area because you know what you are going to get. It is a large 1970s built establishment and some of its architecture gives away its age - long corridors meeting in a central cross and perhaps limits... More

Stayed here for the Saturday night, used the swimming pool and sauna and steam room which was very clean and excellent condition. Lovely lady on the reception gave us towels and explained where everything was. The hotel itself is a bit dated and carpets in lobby a bit worn and tired, But very clean and wonderful helpful staff. Room was... More

We stay here a lot on business and use the excellent conference facilities. It's a hotel that has a family feel to it, as it's not like the big corporate hotels most companies may prefer to use. It's got everything you need, including a gym and a pool. Even though we are at work, it feels like a holiday!

I have visited and stayed in the past as this is a really relaxing place to visit. The décor is impressive and the staff friendly. The food is very average. We had a buffet within the party we attended and it was more like a lunch that an evening meal. Big hefty rolls and a few smaller finger foods. NO... More

Stayed here for my friends wedding. All I can say is we had a brilliant time and I cannot fault anything about it from the wedding itself to the breakfast in the morning. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff they were all so friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was hot,... More
