We only went for a drink here but were very glad we hadn't booked for the night. One drink was enough. The barman appeared high on something and service was so bad it felt like something out of Faulty Towers. Perhaps that's how they are choosing to differentiate, by being chaotic, rude and eccentric. Didn't do it for us although... More

We booked the Blue Boar Hotel for a couple of nights as we were visiting the area. The room was smelly, the furniture filthy the bed impossible the shower full of black mold. Worse to come. We asked for a quiet room, room 31 is in the courtyard of the pub which does not close until 11.30, drinkers right outside... More

Many roomed, spacious, gracious Blue Boar, tucked behind Maldon High St at the top of the town. Full of fascinating antiquities: lovely old furniture and paintings. A full bar; cheerful, willing staff; a garden and outdoor seating. Located in a side-street with some free parking; it's own car park, well within walking distance of all shops. Very few Essex hotels... More

We recently stayed in the Blue Boar and it was quite an odd experience. Staff are polite enough but there aren't enough of them. Same guy doing everything, there seems to be no order, or organisation with the bookings either. The room was fairly new but it was so hot and the outside noise was too loud. If it rains... More

Found this hotel by chance and after reading other reviews still decided to book. As others have said it is quite unique and unusual in this day and age. We had a great time. We chose one of the newer small apartment rooms and had everything we might need. Its a very relaxed place - some people might not take... More

We booked a private room for a special family function. The owner got the food order wrong so we were given a disgraceful and woefully inadequate buffet that would not feed 5 people, let alone 20!! The room was shabby and not set up properly, creased tablecloth, miserable spread. The salmon was raw which the owner disputed and said he... More

The room was cold, the shower was inadequate and the TV didn't work. We had to wait 30 minutes for breakfast which was the smallest serving I have ever had. The bacon was inedible. The menu states "eggs" but there was only one. When I asked for toast I was told it was unlikely I would get any because they... More

We went to a Birhtday party being held at the Blue Boar, and the guests at the party took over the hotel bedrooms for the evening. First impressions were favourable, if you like old, quirky stuff. The reeption is strange..no room rates anywhere, papers all over the place, but this sort of added to the quirkiness. We were shown to... More

We have had excellent food here in past years but visited last year and were very disappointed. On the grounds that anyone can have an off day we went back on Monday but the food was no better. Shame!

This is a unique place that you will either love or hate... and I LOVED IT! I visited to attend the 50th birthday party of a relative, not knowing quite what to expect after reading some of the reviews but it is a place of real character that hasn't been messed about with. My room was very clean and the... More
