“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Booked a three night stay here as we had given our daughter and her friend a lift to V-festival. We only wanted a base so that we could explore the surrounding area having never visited Essex before. Our mistake was pre-paying for the hotel, as once we had seen the room, we both decided we couldn't stay! It was dirty, small, too hot and I couldn't even think about taking my shoes off and stepping on the carpet! In the half hour we were there, the human traffic walking past our second floor room was noisy and non-stop. A costly mistake that we won't be repeating!!

Room Tip: Don't bother!

Used a twin room, myself and a friend used hotel for one night, the room was very clean, very soft bed and the power shower was great. The best part was the price of the breakfast, great value and freshly cooked good choice of cold buffet, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, for a 2 star hotel all what we had was excellent. Well done..

My wife & I stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting family in Essex, close to the A127. Bedrooms have all the usual's & as we had a dog we were on the ground floor with gardens to the front, shower & HOT water to your hearts content,
We were very happy here & will stay again.
If you don't want to pay the resturant prices there are numerous places around, even an Asda for drinks & bickies.
Staff were very polite & always present.

Room Tip: As far away from the A127 as you can!!

We stayed to meet up for friends birthday.... Only supposed to stay for one nite, but chose to stay another night, hotel was full, but the receptionist, managed to find a room for us, and it was the same room we were in the previous night.... Rooms were ideal, non evasive, facing the forest, very comfortable, we also met up with many people staying there... Staff were brilliant, n really friendly, breakfast was lovely and fresh..... brilliant weekend, definitely stay here again.....

This was a nice stay. Very quiet considering how close we were to a major roadway. There was nothing that stood out about this hotel. It was an average hotel. It was nice not to have to pay for wifi in the room and to be able to run a tab on our room.

We booked this hotel at fairly short notice as a place to stay while we visited family, it was a good price and we could take our dog...was a tad perturbed as I'd read some of the pretty awful reviews, but we needn't have worried.
Arrived at 3pm on hottest day of the year , hot & tired after being stuck on M25 in various holdups. Had a really lovely welcome from reception, we'd been allocated a ground floor room with a shady grassed area as we had the dog ( a Great Dane ) , picnic tables were outside , plenty of trees for shade , and discreetly placed rubbish and dog litter bins. The room was spotless , water was hot ALL the time, more than ample for our needs , there was no pressure to use hotel restaurant as we were told that literally across the road were supermarkets and other places to eat and ALL the staff we met were friendly and very welcoming. AND the windows in our room opened fully, not just an inch or so like many other places. Only downside was noise of traffic from main A127 but this was an exceptionally hot weekend so we were keeping the door and windows open most of the time. It's an AA budget hotel , no luxury items and yes, some of the buildings outside looked as though they'd seen better days BUT , it was almost half the price of travel lodge , ample free parking , tables outside the dining area to eat or just have coffee and read the papers provided. Whats not to like , ? We will be staying at this hotel EVERY time we come to Essex, and a huge thankyou to each and everyone of the staff for making our stay so comfortable and pleasant .

Was ok, I know that the rooms can be minging, ive stayed here a couple of times, but I was fortunate to get a clean one. Was pretty quiet, I don't really have any complains. It is over priced for what you get.
