I am writing as we spent some time here, whilst our friends came down from up north and we must say how well trained and courteous the staff were throughout their stay. The quality of their breakfast and day service was impeccable with stringent table laying, high quaility bespoke breakfast depending on what you required, lunch was ample and well... More

We arrived having read previous reviews and of a mind set that was concerned. Well dont be..this is not a four star hotel but it is far better than a travelodge. Every member of staff is helpful, professional, polite and welcoming. The staff were not only a credit to their employer but to themselves. The food was superb and the... More

Yes, we read some of the reviews and were very nervous about our one night stay at the weekend. Well, we neednt have been. Staff were so attentive and friendly. We arrived a bit late due to traffic, so decided to have dinner there, not our original plan. We had a wonderful meal at a very good price - compliments... More

I stopped for just over 1 week here and can say the staff went out of there way to be helpful and accommodating. The food was excellent, far above the standard for any normal hotel I have stayed at and great value too. The fact that they very kindly made me some sandwiches to takes with me each day as... More

I recently attended the Rivenhall hotel for a Masonic Ladies night and can say without reservation that it was the best I have ever attended. A very pleasant venue,competitive prices, clean rooms, comfortable beds and friendly helpful staff. I should also like to thank Dave and Karen for selecting the venue and their hard work in ensuring the evening was... More

I stayed at this hotel about 20 years ago and it was quite good. Unfortunately I don't think any refurbishment work has been carried out ever since. The room we stayed in was of very poor quality. Floorboards creaked, bath a disgrace, shower non adjustable, secondary double glazing, exterior wooden window completely rotten, TV on a stand on the floor... More

I complained to the hotel staff about the room and received a condescending response from the "Quality Assurance Manager". My reply to that is bellow and I believe if reflects my overall impression of the stay; except that I did not mention that the bar area and furniture also smelled (bad), and the nicest thing I can say about the...

This review is colourful as the guest put it but totally dishonest or over-exaggerated. First the guest arrived at 11am and the check in was not till 2pm. The guest was making recurrent effort with the receptionist and demands to get an early check in. Staffs made every effort to accommodate him with him checking in at 1pm despite his... More

My husband and I went back to the Rivenhall today after getting married there 5 years ago, we had a walk around the gardens and one of the staff was kind enough to take some photos of us together with our son. We then had lunch in the bar and were offered complimentary tea and coffee as it was our... More

Was very unfortunate to stay at Rivenhall Hotel. The place should be demolished or be made into a museum to communist architecture. It's like a WW2 Army camp. The layout is bizarre, if your a lone female I would think you'll feel unsafe being so far from the main hotel building. Avoid the place if you can, there is not... More
