We came here for an afternoon tea experience after booking with last minute.com. Before I booked I rang to ask if they has wheelchair access for my friend. They said they don't but where happy to have ramps in place in the steps and assist us with the pool. When we arrived there were no ramps to be seen, and... More

Its rare I write negative reviews but OMG. I arrived and was booked into my room, In a rush to set up paperwork for the next day I when straight to the reception and asked for food options. Restaurant or bar. There was a deal for 3 courses. Also looked like it would be quicker so I went for that.... More

i stayed here for a night whilst visiting relatives. The town had suffered flooding over the weekend and sadly, many places were affected. This included the hotel's bar and swimming pool but they were very upfront and apologetic about this. The room was well-equipped and standard hotel layout. Clean bathroom and bedroom, just what I would expect. The bed was... More

Been visiting this hotel over 10 years. It was a relatively cheap place to stay up until now hence the boredom of the place coupled with its poor and tired decor and growl of the A12 was tolerable. However, they now charge best part of £100 per night for a double room (used to be about £65). It's a horrible... More

I booked this hotel for an overnight stay as I was attending a midweek wedding. On arrival all looked okay. Stayed in room 448 and when walking to the room, it really does look like a motel. Had a twin room, it was very dated, but ok. Cleanliness was an issue. With dead flies in picture frames and stained carpets... More

I had read some bad reviews for this hotel, so I was prepared for the worst. However, I was pleasantly surprised (mostly!) My room was booked as a single, but it had enough room for two, and was clean with a very comfortable double bed. Contrary to previous bad reviews, there was no mould that I could find, the kettle...

This is the first time we write a negativ review, but with this hotel and management one simply needs to warn other costumers. We stayed 1 night in room 445 in August 2014. The toilet flushed so little water that one had to reflush three times or more and wait a couple of minutes inbetween for the water to refill.... More

This hotel is more of a motel due to its layout, as it's only two stories high and spread out over a large area with loads of car parking space. The bar and eating areas are clean and tidy, good food, and the staff are great, but what lets this place down are the rooms. If you want space in... More

Stayed for 1 night thankfully. Communal area of the bar not too bad and the food was good once we finally manage to get someone to order from. Not sure where all the staff were but they didn't seem to want to be in the bar area. Now, the room. Small, pain peeling, really dated decor, excruciatingly bad plumbing for... More

The hotel has been under new management and owners for less than one year and we are in the process of upgrading the hotel which as you can imagine is a mammoth task. However we do hope you will visit again and be able to see the... More

Bad reviews are not something I am in the habit of writing but for the Rivenhall Hotel I shall make an exception. At £100/night this hotel represents dreadful value for money. It appears to have decorated in the 1980s and left to fester ever since. Our room was a tiny box with filthy curtains and a toilet that leaked. The... More
