The hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable with huge parking and close to Anglia Ruskin University. However, it is expensive, especially its Italian restaurant where you buy a salad for 15 pounds! Recommended for business trips at Chelmsford.

On arrival at the Atlantic, the outside looks very dated and if not looking carefully you would drive right past it. It looks like an old office building, hardly any indication it's a hotel. The foyer is lacking any sort of welcome and the stairs up to the first floor are worn and scuffed which makes them look dirty, the... More

Try to cancel the hotel previous day. Stated it had to be cancelled before 12pm. I cancelled in the afternoon and hotel wouldn't eaiver the cost. BE WARNED!! Holiday inns have no issue and don not charge. I have reviewed the rooms and area going of other reviews, as I haven't and will not be stopping at this hotel ever.

I only needed somewhere to stay overnight as I wanted to meet up with friends for a few beers and a curry and there were too many to stay at his house overnight. I didn't have breakfast as I was not hungry after the previous night. The room was clean, a reasonable size and the double bed was comfortable although... More

Late night Bar Keeper / night watchman is rude and arrogant. Second and last time I have experience this with the same guy I would not recommend this hotel for that reason alone...I certainly wouldn't stop by for a drink on the way to bed

The staff were very welcoming at reception. The room was very clean and modern. When asked for a later check out the reception staff were very helpful. Would recommend to others and stay here again if required.

No complaints at all, everything went perfectly with my one night stay. The hotel itself is not very pretty from the outside but it's fine inside, not a complaint just an observation! I had a really good meal in the restaurant as well with very attentive service and one of the few restaurants I've been to recently that when drinks... More

Not sure whether this hotel is really dated or really new! All is clean and tidy, but it's rather expensive for what you get, and having different pricing for different types of breakfast is a step back in time for me ("should I pay an extra £3 for the full English, or just have fruit and cereal and toast for...

I stayed here several nights a week for eight weeks running. The hotel itself was exceptional, the rooms are very nice and the suites are brilliant! The location, only 5 or 10 minutes walking distance to the town centre, is brilliant, especially if you want to eat out at night. Alternatively the hotel restaurant is brilliant, with good food on...

This is a relatively new hotel. Its fairly handy for town and the station, but would not be my first choice of a place to stay. On a positive note the receptionists were friendly and efficient. The room was clean, if a little cold. The negative would be the aircon unit, a floor standing affair that looked as though it... More
