Best Western Atlantic Hotel
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Chelmsford
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I have stayed in this Best Western several time and efficiency is consistent, great staff at reception as well as in the bar and restaurant area.
The Italian restaurant is pleasant and you feel that the food is made on the premises.
My partner and myself were there on a Friday night, just having a drink before going to town, come 7pm, few people started to arrive at the restaurant, warmly greeted, a nice ambiance, and unexpectedly we were given a plate of warm ciabatta to nibble on, such a nice touch, much appreciated! The other thing I have noticed is that some of the staff and the people working in the kitchen seems to be Italians, so authentic cuisine.
I like the Atlantic Hotel as it is close to town, clean with an edgy modern feel, I have stayed in the County Hotel, which seems to have a more traditional feel and it is in a fine building, but the room are dated and our room had a rather than large damp patch on the wall, breakfast was good though and the staff was professional too.
We live in the Cotswolds and we do like a traditional feel to thing, but if it comes with a massive damp patch on the wall and a rather dodgy toilet flush, then no thank you!! stick with the modern hotel like the Atlantic.
Finally, the night bar is good for a last night cap before retiring to the bedroom.
Rooms are good, spacious, nice complementary bottle of water,free Wifi, yes no biki as previous comment. I don't want biki in the coffee tray, I much rather a chocolate on the pillow!!

Not a bad hotel, rooms and restaurant not glamorous but clean and functional. Bed was a little hard and lumpy, could do with a new matress. Sink plug broke twice, and was unable to empty, so a bit of maintain ace required. Breakfast was OK, first day cooked to order, so hot and well presented. Second and third mornings were buffet, and a little cold, or well stewed. Nice coffee. Staff all fine and friendly. Perhaps a little pricy, when you consider the premier inn about 10 minute drive away. A good 15 - 20 minute walk to the main restaurants in town. Could do better for the price charged.

Room Tip: Get a good rate. No lift.

I love this hotel and the restaurant. A fab little Italian within the hotel with authentic Italian Chefs (WIN!)
The staff are ALWAYS so pleasant and friendly . Rooms are of a contemporary style and always clean.
We happened to stay one evening that they had a tribute night in the restaurant, which turned into a great impromptu evening.

I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel.

It is good hotel for business and quite calm . I stayed for 5 nights in this hotel . Room is big and well cleaned . good continental breakfast with nice view to Anglian Ruskin University campus I think that.
I strongly recommend to stay in this hotel but there are no concierge & bell service and sometimes nosie outside because of not isolated building .

Room Tip: ground floor better for those who have heavy luggages just like mine.

Stayed here for 1 night on business having already stayed before. Good location. Very clean & modern. Moody lighting throughout. Check in/out efficient. Nice Italian restaurant on site. Entrance to car park is not glaringly obvious. There is a barrier across the car park, just drive up to it and it will open.
