Whilst the décor in the rooms is a tad dated, the hotel offers good value for money in terms of clean, spacious, peaceful and comfortable accommodation.
We were attending a friend's event which was being hosted in the hotel and staying here seemed the obvious choice. In terms of location, the hotel is a stone's-throw away from the A12, however the noise of the traffic cannot be heard resulting in truly peaceful rooms.
As mentioned, the rooms are a tad dated but are nevertheless presentable. The only problem I found was that the room was a tad warm and even with the window wide-open, it was difficult to regulate the temperature. Then again, it was summertime in England, so that's to be expected!
Another minor gripe was the price of drinks at the bar. Having stayed in more than my fair share of hotels, I fully appreciate that it's the norm for them to add a premium onto the cost of drinks. However, paying a premium for a carbonated mixer to be poured from a plastic bottle was irksome to say the least.
Fortunately for the hotel, their staff were excellent; you couldn't ask for a more friendly, polite or helpful set of ambassadors! I would certainly consider staying here in the future if I was ever in this part of the world, however I would avoid the bar and the unjustifiable prices in the future!
