“Very nice and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Just stayed here for the weekend me and the hubby , and was well shocked as the reviews for this hotel was shocking , we pulled up outside and thought shall we go in or look for some where else , but as they had are credit card number number , we went in , looked nice from outside , and was very clean and looked nice inside , I just don't no how the comments could be so bad , our room was very clean yes a little dated but very nice , the staff was very friendly and sweet , and helpful , I feel sorry for the reviews as they must lose out to people booking here , me and my husband would definitely stay here again worth the price and pleasent

Yes i can agree with some points of other reviews here like the rooms are bit dated but surely thats reflected in the price. I was quite surprised that as soon as i walked into reception i though this is ok as i was dreading it after reading hotels reviews on here. Our room was fine , clean & perfectly acceptable for resting our heads for one night . I actually enjoyed my cooked breakfast , it was nice . Would i stay here again if i needed to ? Yes i think i probaly would .

Dirty rooms looks like they only make beds and a quick tidy,cobwebs all over, however it gets 5 stars for the worst bed i have ever slept in, could not get to sleep at all, blood stain on wall, over priced food and drink, not to mention unfriendly staff, avoid at all costs even if its free!!

We stopped at the Miami whilst visiting friends in the area and this is the closest hotel to them.

Accommodation was basic and dated but clean, with a bed that was not particularly uncomfortable - although the pillows were very thin and cheap. Reception staff seemed pleasant and room had tv and tea/coffee making facility.

The shower trickled rather than ran and the temperature switch needed some attention. We had a" lovely" view overlooking Tescos car park (not really their fault as the hotel was definitely there first).

The biggest disappointment was breakfast - staff took ages to bring tea and toast and we had finished all the toast before the cooked breakfast arrived. Staff apologised each time, but as there were only 3 or so other tables occupied, you did wonder what service would be like if the hotel were busy.

Cooked breakfast was not particularly good and the sausage was the cheapest we have eaten in years - very little meat content. Even our dog gets better sausages than that!

For the price we paid (£79 night b&b), I would suggest the Premier Inn would be a better option if you are not needing the location.

Booked this hotel for family that came to visit. We cannot fault the staff all were very friendly and helpful. The hotel though a little dated was clean and well presented at a reasonable price (have paid a lot more at other hotels of a much lower standard). Would reccommend if you are staying in Chelmsford

Stayed here several years ago. Facilities and rooms were dated then and clearly nothing has changed (judging by recent reviews).

Staff were rude, unforgivably so. I recall being treated like utter dirt at reception, in the bar and at breakfast. This was by those who I would assume were the owners.

Stayed once, never stayed again. Can only advise you find a nearby Premier Inn.

Unclean dated room.Just couldnt believe the bare plaster in the tiny shower.Room has old peeling wall paper. All the doors in my block ( sounds like a prison) slam shut and make quite a noise.The bin in my room smells of stale vomit.
This poorly kept hotel is used by local council for Homeless accomindation, ive heard the council are charged £57 a night and the poor souls who stay here dont even get breakfast.
Im guessing the local cancel are keeping this scruffy dump going!!!

Room Tip: go else where
