Not as bad as some of the reviews I read before our visit, we stayed here because it was the nearest hotel to Braxstead Hall where we went for a wedding. (Wedding was a 10 minute cab and fantastic venue). It's clean but dated, stuck in the 80s, beds are also from the 80s. Not the worst though. I understand... More

We booked here last minute to stay for two nights after planning to take our daughter to the zoo for her 2nd birthday which happens to be on New Year's Eve! Wow! What an amazing hotel! Warm & welcoming with the most wonderful staff we have ever met. So attentive, polite & nice. They made us feel so so welcome... More

My daughter and I wanted to stay for one night to have a relaxing new year due to illness over Xmas. We booked the Rivenhall as it was local and I had attended meetings there in the past. Our room was extremely spacious and completely adequate for our needs. We had booked treatment in the spa and these were fantastic... More

rivenhall, General Manager at Rivenhall Hotel, responded to this review

We have already spoken to you that the cancellation of the event was beyond our control and that all the other guests that had also booked that we have spoken to, including your husband, were grateful for our honesty and openness that it would not have been the night they were expecting. Your opportunistic attitude towards compensation you asked for... More

Attended the Las Vegas Party Night on the 5th December. We were a works party of 27 and had a brilliant evening which included "Frank Sinatra", Casino Tables and a Disco. The food was excellent and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. This was our second year at this venue and we weren't disappointed. Breakfast the next morning... More

I've never paid for my nights stay at a hotel on check in before, so alarm bells were already ringing. Mind you, to call this a hotel is stretching the imagination. At £72 for the night (thank god we didn't have the breakfast) you would expect something better than a Travelodge. Well, I would rather stay in a Travelodge that... More

The staff were extremely helpful at the check in and allowed us to check in early which was a huge help The night staff was also extremely helpful and nothing... More

Stayed here overnight for a local event. The rooms are basic but the location was convenient and it is reasonably priced. The main reason I wanted to write this review is because the staff deserve a special mention. Debbie worked tirelessly to arrange early checkins and transportation for everyone – she was very organised and really cared about making things... More
