We were told to stay here for a friend's wedding in June, as it was the nearest town to where the wedding was. To be perfectly honest, if we hadn't been going to a wedding the same day, I would not even have unpacked my bags. Some would say the place is quirky, I would say it is dirty, over-crowded... More

We stayed for two nights which was a big mistake, both owners a Jon and Sue drunk from lunch time onwards. Room dirty being an understatement, food inedible. Just like the last review owners not bothered. Do yourselves a favour do not stand or eat here

We stayed with a group of friends so were able to laugh through the awfulness of the stay. Owners obviously like nude paintings. Furnishings in our room threadbare. Blind falling to bits. Friends had cracked handbasin. Others shower not working. On reporting owners not bothered. We had booked dinner for our group on first night. 15 minutes before we were... More

Called to check if there was a need to book a table -- told there was no need. Arrived for a birthday meal with friends on Sat 16 May to be confronted with a sign on the bar: 'No Food Today' -- no wonder we were told there no need to book a table! Still, we enjoyed a good evening... More

The blue boar hotel was a good place to stay. It's got a lot of history and basically just an old place! The rooms were good, had all the furnishings you needed! Just took a bit again used to do with the floorboards and the rest of the room being a level due to the how old to build on... More

I was attending my brother's funeral in Maldon. My husband and I are both wheelchair users had telephoned the hotel three weeks prior to our visit to enquire if their rooms were wheelchair accessible. The charming gentleman I spoke to said yes indeed they had an accessible room however the room was booked out on the date we required. I... More

According to its website, this Inn is something like six hundred years old and some of the paintings hanging in the residents’ lounge look like they date back from the grand opening. In many ways, Olde Worlde charm can be quite attractive, if you can tolerate the downside of creaking floorboards, concave beds, peeling and faded wallpaper and an apparently... More

This place exudes it's history, you can imagine the horses being changed, ready for the onwards journey, while you are refreshed with good food and drink (including their locally brewed beers). You can stay in one of a number of different styles of accommodation or just stay for an hour or two when you visit the area.
