My wife and I were staying here as part of a family wedding. We got a £4 discount for booking online well in advance. Checking was very efficient and were allocated room 107 in the far right corner. The colour scheme (browns and oak furniture) may be a bit dark but the quality of the beds, linen and furniture was spot on. In fact I would say the beds are excellent. The flat screen TV had all the free view channels. The bathroom tiles were again a bit odd and the bath panel was slightly cracked but everything else worked and was clean. The towels were a bit on the small size but sufficient. There is some road noise over the fields from the A130 but just the normal hotel noises from other rooms and outside. The walls are not thin just hotel standard.
As other people has mention the bar is small and it's opening times are it and miss. What guest are not told is the function rooms (Essex Barn and restaurant) are owned by another company) The bar in the restaurant was open during lunch and early evening. Breakfast - We opted for the Continental option at £5.75p each. On the Sunday morning there was a very good selection of fruit juice, cereals, bread, tinned fruit etc with lots of toast. On the Monday morning the choice was more limited (depends how guest there are).
The open courtyard in the centre of the hotel was lovely. The perfect place to meet up with other family members for a chat (in the Sunshine!). The cleaning staff were friendly and helpful and check out was again efficient. We paid £61 for the Saturday night and £43 for the Sunday night. In summary a nice hotel, brilliant for a wedding in the function rooms with plenty of "good" aspects with no real "could be better" items.
