I've stayed here a few times on business as the hotel is close enough to walk into the city centre but far enough out to be quiet in the evening. The rooms are a good size and the hotel's facilities are fine - there's a good sized dining room and a well-stocked bar. The menu isn't particularly adventurous at the... More

Had a lovely meal with friends but the place was almost empty. The waiter was a bit weird and walked like Mr Bean on a bad day. Bar service was very slow especially as only 8 people in the place . If they could sort out the atmosphere like playing a little music then I am sure it would improve... More

We stayed for four days. The staff were friendly and always helpful. Peter, the manager, was a delight. The room was great. Free wi-fi is offered as soon as you arrive. The breakfast menu was enticing and the food was very tasty. Tescos are five minutes up the road and the Chelmsford town centre is five minutes down the road.We... More

Totally loved my stay here. The staff were all lovely and helpful. I needed to get some cash and the lady on reception gave me very clear directions to the Tesco down the road. It's much bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. I booked a single room and had a lovely big room with a big... More

This will be brief because our visit was brief! We literally just wanted somewhere to sleep because we were going to a party nearby. Parking was a little tight but we got a space in the car park. The man on reception who greeted us couldn't have been more friendly and helpful (while getting ready for the party, the button... More

I was here for one night with a friend, our room (in the main hotel) was cosy and welcoming and the bathroom was spacious and clean. I found all the staff to be very friendly, we had a pleasant evening in the bar and the breakfast was good in the morning. It was good value for money and I would... More

We stayed here for one night in a family room for a nearby wedding. First impressions were good. Nice welcome, friendly staff, and nice bar/lounge area. Our family room was in the older 'motel' looking end of the hotel accessed via a confusing corridor arrangement. We could smell the room before we entered - a disconcerting over-powering smell of air... More
