I've stayed at this hotel three times now and I've always had a pleasant stay. The rooms, which are a good size, are clean and the beds are comfy. If the furniture is not new, it is very well maintained (unlike the carpet in the corridors and on the stairs, which desperately needs changing). I'm a Best Western Rewards member... More

Stayed here for one overnight stay as I was attending a conference at the University nearby. Great location for that and for centre of Chelmsford. Car park hidden away. Entrance does not give good impression and public areas in need of revamp. Staff friendly and efficient. Rooms are ok, but again in need of a revamp. Room did not smell... More

This hotel is typical modern hotel, no atmosphere. rooms on ground floor feel a little exposed to passers by with window open onto the car park. The restaurant menu is better than the quality of the food but all of a reasonable standard. Fine for business travellers but I wouldn't take my family there for a holiday. Flying visit maybe....

Arrived at 5.30pm yesterday, didn't realise that to get into the car park you have to drive up to the barrier and it opens. Instead initially parked in one of the 4 spaces just outside of it but no issue, just went and moved it after talking to the receptionist. The staff are generally friendly, no problems there.

Hotel really well situated for our purpose of visiting family. Our requirements were simply a bed to sleep in and a decent breakfast in morning. Other facilities were of not much interest as we were spending very little time in place. Car park good, plenty of spaces. Reception and check in very efficient and fuss free. Not a particularly large... More

As a one night stop over it was ok .....by joining their club we had an upgraded room which was probably a good idea .....basic and there were some blood stains on the duvet cover ...should have complained but never really had the time or inclination ....the corridors were dimmed to give ambience I believe but almost to the point...
