We had a really enjoyable stay. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was stunning and full of character and is based in a lovely part of Chelmsford. The breakfast is also superb. A great place for a romantic weekend away.

Accommodating staff and very nice rooms. The breakfast was also very good -- they even prepared a few items for us to eat when we left early our last day for LHR. The staff helped us find some local places we needed to visit, and pointed us in the right direction for dinners. The parlor and honor-system "bar" are good... More

Stunning room in this small friendly hotel. None of the bars or restaurants that establishments like The Crown or Hotel du Vin boast but great rooms in a stunning period house. Four poster beds and spa baths make this a fine base in a perfect location.

Stayed one night over a weekend and everything good. Very comfortable bed (Willoughby Suite), nice aspect and well appointed. Slightly dated decor (notwithstanding it is a Georgian building) and surprisingly no shaver socket, however these are minor quibbles. It is well placed for the shops and restaurants, and does seem to be a very pleasant area. Recommended.

We stayed just for one night to extend the "holiday feeling" before returning to work in early Sept. We were kindly upgraded to the four poster suite on the ground floor together with a spacious bathroom and even a twin room off (luckily had no need to exile snoring husband). Although I was a little concerned that we'd be disturbed... More

Breakfast is excellent and its freshly cooked upon order. The property is well maintained. Our room was clean and we had one of the best sleep ever on our travel..i... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sympathetically converted, the unique hotel is star-listed as a building of special architectural and historical interest, so all essential features are maintained and preserved. However, retaining the charm of a bygone age doesn’t mean lack of mod-cons. From £99 per room, per night, Willoughby House offers affordable luxury throughout its individual rooms (including a four-poster suite with Jacuzzi bath) as well as fresh, homemade breakfasts, personal service, free on-site parking and wi-fi access. ... more   less
