Having stopped at the hotel on previous occasions. I returned this week and was upgraded to a room with air conditioning so pleased as it would have been unbearable otherwise. Room was spotless and clean with powerful shower. The rooms are now showing there age and carpets in the hotel are becoming threadbare in places. Staff are all friendly and... More

Stayed overnight for a wedding couldnt check in early so checked in at midnight. Room was so hot i didn't sleep a wink. There was little interest or apology from the staff. In fact I was not even asked how my stay was and had to tell them. Probably because they must have heard it continuously from other customer. I... More

We had been allocated a standard double and an executive room. Upon asking the only difference was that the executive had air con and a mini fridge with two bottles of... More

Very tatty, worn carpets and very much in need of an update. Food ok and staff very helpful which goes some way to compensate for the hotel itself. Also nowhere to sit outside other than a few chairs. The gardens need landscaping and the rubbish cleared from the tennis courts. It was very hot during the night and impossible to... More

Stayed in the Best Western Marks Tey Hotel for two nights as were going to a wedding in Essex. The check in staff were very efficient and friendly. The room was perfect for our needs.

Exceptionally clean and fresh smelling. Decor was individualistic but on the plus side can you ever have too many mirrors? Fantastic parking, staff wonderfully friendly and breakfast excellent. Well done Best Western Marks Tey!

The rooms are anything spectacular, but for the price i paid they were fine, and very clean. Overall if you are coming to the area id... More

Booked into the Marks Tey Hotel for the one night and not disappointed! Arrived early and reception were very helpful, got the room @ 12.30pm as we needed to get changed for a wedding that afternoon. Hotel looks very tired from the outside, a bit dated inside but room and bed were extremely comfortable. Staff were great, nothing was too... More

A lovely weekend spent here - a comfortable room, the hotel is quite dated but clean with a great breakfast, good value with very helpful staff and the best afternoon tea I have ever had - it included vast amount of cream, a starter and a trifle desert!

I was taken for afternoon tea at The Marks Tey Hotel by my friends as a pre-birthday treat. They'd warned me not to eat anything prior to going and to wear elasticated trousers, so I knew I was in for quite a culinary challenge. It was a Sunday mid-afternoon and we appeared to have the place to ourselves. We were... More
