I've been staying here for the past 4 years. The hotel is undergoing a revamp which was needed. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The food is a little random but fine after a long days travel. It has a good car park and very close to the university. Reception staff are generally great. There is one girl who remembers... More

Considering what you pay here - with the addition of free car parking not far from the centre of Chemlsford and free entry to the adjacent Health Club - this hotel is excellent value.The rooms are good with a comfortable double bed and excellent shower and bathroom amenities including a good supply of white fluffy towels.

Stayed for one night dinner bed and breakfast on Friday night. Roons were excellent with massive beds. Bar and restaurant was pretty empty for a Friday. The restaurant is Italian themed only which i though was a bit restrictive. Drinks were expensive and food was average only. Breakfast was okay but not buffet style you have to order from menu....

First 'incident' - After I had checked in and went back and forth between the car and the room with my luggage,... More

stayed here for a Friday and Saturday night. Lovely big bed which was extremely comfortable. The room was a nice size and the bathroom had a powerful shower and adequate towels. Shampoo, shower gel and a small soap was also provided. The room was quiet enough - well away from a noisy party on the Friday night. The breakfast was... More

This hotel does not try to be what it is not, but we found it very good for our needs. It is well known placed for the centre of town. A short walk and you are at the cathedral. What I liked most was the attitude of the staff - desk, restaurant, bar etc. They were a mixture of nationalities... More

Myself and a large group have recently stayed at this hotel for around 3- 4 weeks. For the money the rooms were good value, quite big, showers were lovely. Plenty of parking spaces as parking is a bit of an issue in Chelmsford we discovered. By far this hotel exceeds expectations with the Customer Service in the Restaurant without exception... More

The bathroom just did not seem very clean- the highlight being the very ominous brown stain at the bottom of the bath. Hairs on floor. The bedside lights had no obvious switch- so had to clamber...
