Truly recommend the afternoon tea in the Garden restaurant, the décor was delightful bright floral walls with bright furniture very modern.
The staff excelled themselves to make you feel at home and tended to your every need.
The Tea was excellent with freshly made sandwiches, Warm scones and some very nice small cakes, I liked the extra touch of a tiny quiche and fresh strawberries made it just that bit special.
Great value for money I will definitely return soon.

Room Tip: Afternoon tea only

Stayed here for a family anniversary hosted at one of the function rooms, as a consequence we got a 'special' room price of 150 night, so clearly, expectations were high....everything was reasonable, room, surroundings etc but nothing (apart from some greenery) you wouldn't get at a holiday inn. Breakfast was poor, considering the price you'd expect as a minimum the basic buffet stuff with hot breakfast served off a menu; you get school dinners, self serve everything and have to ask for toast, I did witness a particularly disgruntled client complain only to be told he was 'lucky' to have some bacon as we was 20 mins from the end of breakfast time, for £150, really????? Also noted previous comments on the pre auth card stuff and actually taking money, gonna check my account now. A big reputation by all accounts, big prices but nothing to really back it up.....

Had never heard of this hotel before being booked in for a business trip. My bedroom was very comfortable, clean and quiet, with free WiFi access with no problem. Food was excellent and I found the service cheerful and efficient. Good location for South Essex towns, such as Brentwood, Chelmsford and Romford.
