Has the feel of a former Travelodge and the rooms are a little 'dated' but clean with a large en-suite. Breakfast was excellent and there's also a well managed bar. Happily stay there again on business

The pub is a bit down but the staff were nice. They have 2 deluxe rooms? We had one of them I think. The room clean and basic with comfortable bed. Ordered a vegi breakfast online but she got beans. They couldn't even poach an egg. OK and value for money more suitable for work men I think. I would... More

Stayed here with partner and two under twos during a stay to visit local family. We arrived in the evening with the slightly alarming realisation that there is a loud nightclub on the ground floor. However we could not hear it from our room which was quiet and spacious. The room was clean and comfortable and ideal for our family.... More

I booked this online for a visit to the area with my wife and her sister. My memory of the village (30 years ago) coupled with the photo on the website led me to believe it was still a picturesque and quiet destination. Unfortunately, South Woodham Ferrers as I once knew it no longer exists. This place is now no... More

We have used this hotel for a full business field season and they have been the most helpful and accommodating hotel or guest house we have ever used. They have had to put up with us requesting or cancelling rooms at short notice (our work is weather dependent). They have coped well with our staff's unsocial hours. The have always... More

We stayed at the Oakland Hotel on a Saturday night while attending a birthday party nearby. The hotel website warns that Friday and Saturday nights can be noisy until one a.m. because of live music being played downstairs. What it didn't warn about was the fact that guests might be partying in their rooms until half past two! As for... More

THe room was clean and adequately furnished for the price but the bed was quite uncomfortable. Beware of live bands on Friday and Saturday nights. To be fair the hotel did give warnings. There are also no lifts which was a problem with two elderley Aunts and rooms on the 2nd floor. Free parking was a short walk away. Advertised... More

I stayed here on a saturday and I know there was warnings about live entertainment, but I did not expect it to be live in my room, (well it may well have been) I was on the second floor and the room was shaking. The mirror on the wall was vibrating and sounded like an alarm going off. The shower... More
