We went with family and friends for afternoon tea, this was our second time and service and food was excellent, as building works going on we were in a separate room as opposed to the conservatory last time but was still as pleasant.

Thank you for your review following your another visit for afternoon tea. I am pleased that you enjoyed your experience, we are serving afternoon tea in another area at the moment to minimise the disruption for the building works but this will all be completed in a couple of months. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Jason Bartella... More

I took my daughter for afternoon tea to this hotel using a Travelzoo Voucher and we really enjoyed it. The open sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious, as was the glass of Prosecco. We were bought a second pot of tea and asked if we needed anymore food, which we didn't as the servings per person were just about right,... More

We had our wedding close by at Ingatestone Hall but stayed here for two nights after our wedding. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite when it became available. Our stay was fantastic, the room was the perfect size to and the four poster bed was so comfy. The rooms are decorated to fit the tone of the hotel while... More

Stayed overnight wanting a good nights rest. There is building work in progress, so parts of the building look like a building site. My room had the tiniest window which had not been left open so the room was like an oven and there was a very odd smell in the bathroom. Was ok for an overnight but would not... More

Took afternoon tea at this hotel which despite being very close to the noisy A.12 road was very good. The Hotel has some delightful and well maintained gardens and ponds which would appear to lend themselves to wedding photos. The tea consisted of a glass of Prosecco, very tasty opens sandwiches, egg mayonnaise, smoked salmon and Parma ham, cheese straw.... More

We had a voucher from Travel Zoo for Afternoon Tea. When we arrived there was a lot of building work going on. We booked in and was told to pick a table near the reception area which had all blinds down because of the building work. As it was a lovely afternoon we asked if there was a garden or... More

Stayed here to facilitate maximum enjoyment at a party that was being held on these premises. Location,room,food all very good had a nice feel about the place. The party was excellent and it wasn't very far to go to bed.

I stayed at this hotel not so long ago and as there is only 'average' or 'very good', I have selected the former description as this is more appropriate. On arrival, apart from a friendly greeting, your credit card details are demanded in case of extra expenditure - surely this can be taken from the original booking rather than make... More

This was an ideal hotel for the location and price. It served as a great place to stay whilst we were in the area for our friend's wedding at Hylands House just up the road. The room was large, clean and well equipped with all the necessities. The bed was comfortable and the shower was warm and powerful. Plenty of... More
