Warm friendly welcoming and efficient staff added to a smallish intimate hotel with character and easily accessible location just off the A12 all contributed to a lovely stay. Would recommend the Best Western Ivy Hill.

The hotel is just off the A 12, a few miles from Chelmsford. It is situated in an old building and the rooms are scattered throughout the building. The room (superior) was large and comfortable with a sofa and tea tray. However, the bathroom was absolutely tiny and I would have expected a fridge in a superior room. It was... More

Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. It is hard to comment on which room you stayed in as we don't actually classify any of our rooms as Superior but we do not offer fridges in any of our rooms and have never claimed to. I would like to apologise for the issues encountered at breakfast,... More

I really like the restaurant at this hotel and have reviewed it seperately in the past. I decided to use the restaurant again for my wife's birthday. To save any messing about I decided to book a room for the night. We were both very pleased. The room was clean and spacious and the bed was on of the most... More

Another excellent Sunday afternoon tea. Very relaxed what better way to enjoy the sun than with a glass of prosecco and too many cakes! Service as ever (this is my third afternoon tea here) was excellent, very relaxed atmosphere. Very clean tea and coffee excellent. Sandwiches excellent.

My family and I had a comfortable stay here. There was me, my partner and our two children aged 7 and 1. Our room was a good size. Very clean and comfortable. Due to how nice the hotel was and how well it was kept, I did kind of expect a mini fridge, which would of been perfect for us... More

The hotel seems to have had a recent make over so it looks smart and clean plus staff were welcoming. The hotel was very empty and we found out why. The major flaw is the noise from the 3 lane A 12 which it sits directly over, PLUS next door they hold Indian weddings, fireworks and revving engines at midnight!... More
