Basic room but clean and warm with ample hot water. Lots of noises from boiler/fridges / loading vans in the very early hours and a busy bar to keep you awake. It's ok for the money and the only hotel in Woodham so no choice really.

The hotel is in a really ideal location. Shops, and restaurants are nearby and with free parking just behind the hotel, it's great. I was on my own for a 1 night visit for a 30th Birthday party - which was a 3 min walk away from the hotel, so I book a single room. I was expecting a tiny...

Stayed here on a Saturday night.The hotel is located in the centre of South Woodham Ferrers and is convenient for shops and attractions in the area. Its location, however, is not easy to reach by car and parking at the hotel is very limited, but there is a free car park nearby. The hotel is really a pub with accommodation....
