Good rooms. Breakfast was good as well. Best thing about the hotel tho was the staff. They really looked us especially at breakfast. High level of customer service. Great location close to the train station and city centre

We were looking for somewhere to stay the night in Chelmsford on a business trip and pulled up outside this hotel. I agree with previous reviewers - it looked very dated from the outside but decided to take a look inside - after all it was only one night! To our great surprise the inside is very deceptive.

Had a lovely stay on a bank holiday. Room was spacious and clean and offered everything that we needed. Visited the Sapori for some deserts (we had eaten in the town) and had the chocolate fondant, strawberry cheesecake and a cheese board, was very nice and left us very full! Hotel is very close to the town center and within... More

I have stayed here twice in the past year as it is very well positioned for a night out, it's clean, modern and comfortable. Excellent buffet breakfast, reception staff are courteous and I was remembered on my second visit even though it was a good 6 months later. Rooms are perfectly well equipped, although the lighting is a bit dull... More

Have used this occasionally over the last 18 months, it had become the local favourite. I'd still recommend the restaurant if you have a Tastecard. The previous time they kept the front doors locked due to lack of staff and we had to be asked to be let in and out. This time they cancelled my room at short notice,... More

I stayed at this hotel because it was in walking distance of Chelmsford town centre where I was working on business. It meant I did not have to worry about parking. The outside looks a bit like a square brick box but this is not reflected at all inside where they have really made the most of the space with... More

Look there are not many places to stay in Chelmsford, so prices are high. I booked here after finishing work in town having asked some locals for advise. Decent car park but not very secure. It's is very clean and tidy and the rooms are a decent size and standard, but they are travelodge with a bit of added tat.... More

We came to this hotel about a month ago. Staff very friendly. Big, clean and lovely rooms. The food was a bit pricey as we ordered room service and had some desserts and I have to say it wasn't worth the price. Overall I had a great experience with Best Western Atlantic Hotel. And I will be coming back again... More

Almost passed this one by until my daughter encouraged me to just go in and check it out. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, great food. Truly unexpected and welcomed surprise! The dinner was delicious (grilled salmon) and the breakfast was an amazing spread.
