We were very impressed with the service on check in and again at breakfast (Sue Putt). Nothing was too much trouble for Sue. Our room was not quite ready for us on arrival but she quickly took our bags and settled us in the bar area with a drink. (Better service than we've had at the Park Lane Hilton under...

We booked in advance to stay here for my cousin's 40th birthday party at the nearby Race Course. I managed to tick the wrong box on my booking so had to phone to correct that, and then a week later to give a new credit card as my husband's had been lost and so cancelled. Both times helpful friendly service...

In the relatively out-of-the way town of Braintree is where you'll find this HI Express. Entry is through a series of quick turns between two round-abouts. Don't be surprised if you make a couple loops before making it into the parking area. The staff are friendly and efficient. Joking around during check-in came easy and made for a very pleasant...

Clean and the bed was comfortable, good shower, good size room BUT aircon not working for the first night and the next morning we were there, electric blow heater in the room which did not heat the bathroom. Breakfast was awful, dried scrambled egg, warmed up sausages and backed beans which were cold. Dried up rolls and croissants. Coffee from...

I had forgotten the way in which people in this area use expressions like "thank you darling" and "thank you sweetheart". If you are not used to it, this may sound strange. I love it. The staff in this hotel are very friendly, the hotel is clean, efficiently run and reasonably priced. The breakfast included in the price, is good...

Good value for a short term break and very centrally located. Staff were very helpful and friendly and room was very clean with everything we needed. As we were going to a wedding, the iron and ironing board were a particularly handy extra. The breakfast was also better than we had anticipated given the price of the room. Highly recommended.

We stayed for one night as we were going to friends Ruby Anniversary Blessing and party nearby. We needed an early check in at 12pm as the blessing was about 30 mins away and started at 2pm. The staff were so helpful, pleasant and accommodating. We were able to book in early and that gave us just enough to sort...
