We stayed here during the very warm spell -which, in fairness, probably made the noise aspect worse as we had to 'sleep' (not that we got much!) with the window open. We had a lovely view overlooking the church and windmill. However, the room also overlooked the busy main road through Thaxted and the hotel is on a bend and road junction. On top of this, there were noisy people at tables outside the room until around 11.30pm, the fire door outside of ours clonked incessantly, the church bells struck on the hour every hour and the hotel is not that far from Stanstead. (The last plane at night was just before midnight and the first to take off the following morning was just before 5am!)
Over and above this, the hotel is in dire need of redecoration and some measure of updating by Old English Inns. In short, it wasn't our best experience with this chain -although dinner and breakfast were fine!
