My Girlfriend and I visited Chelmsford last night and checked into this hotel just for one night what a mistake. The was overlooking the outside drinking area at the front of the hotel, so music and noise until 1am. The room had paper hanging from the ceiling, the bottom half of the bed had holes all over the place, electrical... More

Paid a rare visit to Chelmsford this afternoon on the first sunny day in 3 whilst ‘running some errands’. As I turned into the high street I saw the benches and umbrella’s outside the Saracen’s and thought I ‘d stop there on the way back for a cool beer. As I walked past I noticed the tables were littered with... More

Popped in for a drink as it was a sunny day. Myself and my partner decided to grab a drink from the bar, however it would have been nice to have been served by someone a little friendlier. We were served by the young blond girl at the bar, no friendly greeting. Perhaps she should be sent away to be... More

I only stayed here because I had to do an exam the following day so I thought I would rest better if I didn't have to wake up early to travel the following day. I got the single room which was £40. I know I can't expect much for this amount of money these days, and I didn't mind the... More

Me and my friend would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a night out in Chelmsford! Friendly staff, lively pub downstairs, clean room and good price! Also in a perfect location a few minutes away from CTZN, evoke and massula night clubs! Shall definitely be returning

Our room felt like we were under a speaker and it didn't stop until 1am. All through the night we heard the hallway doors banging shut and floor creaking. We were unlucky to sleep next to young people having a party in their room at 4am with loud music. No consideration for anyone. No one at reception or no porter... More
