We stayed here during the Good Friday in April for one night. The service is good and friendly staff. No complaints it's everything that we expected. The room clean and comfortable and the food in the restaurant was enjoyable.

Myself and my wife stayed here on a midweek night recently whilst travelling in the area on business, and had a very nice time. The hotel is perfectly placed right in the heart of Braintree, with plenty of off-street parking next to the property, which is an added bonus whilst in a downtown location. The check-in is a bit confusing... More

Stayed here for work reasons, to be honest I'm not a fan of staying in pub based hotels as they are often noisy and can be cramped but the White Hart is a definite exception there are a surprising number of rooms and mine was well finished and had good wifi (free via Cloud) I went out for dinner so...

I originally come from Braintree and never thought I would ever stay here. When I had the opportunity to do so I was very pleased but unsure as to how it would be inside. After growing up and seeing it everyday from the outside I had often wondered what it would be like on the inside. A friendly welcome followed... More

We stayed here on a B&B basis for one night in order to visit Chelmsford City Races. The hotel has limited parking, which is free to guests. Checking in was easy and friendly. Our room was fabulous! We were lucky enough to get a room in the old part of the hotel, which had wobbly floors and walls which just... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice now and both times have really liked it. Its a historic building so appeals to me much more than the clinical newer hotels. OK so everything isn't brand new, but so what, everything is good quality and clean! On both visits the management and all of the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The... More

Located close to city centre, Small but decent rooms, Good Breakfast. The issue is the Hotel closes at 10 pm and check-in is not possible thereafter. if you have checked in earlier, you are given main gate key to access the hotel during late hours.

Stayed here for our wedding night. The superior room was amazing. Wish it was my room at home. But due to no heating. The room was freezing and my husband was so cold all night. It did come with electric heater but didn't heat the room up. Would need another heating or 2 to keep the large room warm. The... More

We have eaten here a couple of times whilst house hunting. Pleasant dining area and good selection of drinks and well kept beer. Eating area is extensive and there is a good selection on the menu. Efficient service and well presented food but slightly corporate in nature and lacking in any wow factor which precludes a five. Good value and... More

stayed for one night as we attended a wedding nearby. Staff were friendly, food was nice and good value for money, and room was nice, clean, spacious and well worth the price we paid. Free wifi was a bonus, together with free parking and lovely breakfast before we left. Would stay again.
