Stayed for one night on 3rd December as we were attending a party. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was at the front overlooking the main square so we were able to see the Christmas Lights. Breakfast was very good. Parking is limited but we were directed to a long term...

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....

Hotel was clean and tidy. Rooms are a bit dated, but we were only in them for a short time so didn't impact our stay. The only issue we had is that we had booked a mini bus through the hotel to take us to and pick us up from the V Festival. We were due to leave at 12pm,...

I visited with my partner and we were very pleasantly surprised, the room was spacious and comfortable, well furnished and very clean. Centrally located close to lots of restaurants and bars. The hotel bar had live music and was very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful with cereals and toast, juices and a full English on offer. This...

We stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding nearby. We knew it wasn't going to be a 'posh' hotel but I wasn't quite prepared for the amount of noise we experienced. We had a baby staying in a room next to us which cried frequently and it sounded as though it was in the room with us....
