Booked 2 rooms for my in laws and husband and I. In a funny location but still only 10-15 min walk to town. We arrived and the room stank of feet so got moved after having to prove to the receptionist that it smelt! The room was spacious but very tatty. Shower awful, tiles falling off and no air con...

Excellent prompt service, friendly staff who remember you, good food and nothing is to much trouble for them. Rooms are large and airy and always with plenty of tea and coffee available Good location for work and also main shopping centres within easy walking distance. Plenty of restaurants and eating places around the area.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Atlantic Hotel, as we had a week-long training course at Chelmsford ice rink. The staff were great and very helpful throughout the week. The hotel is quite deceptive from the outside. It doesn't look anything special until you walk in. The reception area is very impressive. Obviously a lot of time and money... More

To be honest I don't normally opt for best western hotels due to some previous bad experiences. The Atlantic however is a rose amongst thorns. Upon arrival the fist impression isn't great the facade is dated plain cream brick but the car park is a good size and security is good. The welcome at reception was very nice and the... More

The Atlantic was difficult to find (don't try the nearby carwash!) but had a very welcoming and helpful reception staff and an excellent large (by Travelodge standards) room with free WiFi and large Samsung TV with Sky and lots of channels - just right for the Olympics. The bathroom was good with an easy to use shower and plenty of... More

Average hotel at big price. Better looking inside than out. Restaurant food expensive but menu not extensive. If I had paid around £60-£70 I wouldn't complain. I can get a half decent hotel in the city for £93

A very modern, clean, city centre hotel. Nice bedrooms, huge beds and good showers. Pleasant staff too. That being said I don't think this hotel is any better than the nearby Premier Inn - which tends to be available at a lower price. Note that if you want an early breakfast on Sunday, forget it. The restaurant opens at 0800... More

Stayed here Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for a family birthday party. King size bed very comfortable. Breakfast was superb on the first two mornings but Monday morning was spoiled for us with a private party having exclusive access to the sunny breakfast room. Regular breakfast guests were put in the dining room with heavy dark curtains shutting out any... More

I stayed in an executive double, the shower was amazing, having sky in the room was a real bonus and the food in the Italian restaurant for dinner and breakfast was really good. Staff were friendly and polite. Would definitely stay here again.
