This is a lovely hotel. We had our wedding reception there 4 and a half years ago and found a Groupon voucher for a nights stay so thought we would go back to celebrate my birthday as it's a special place to us. The hotel is very clean and has a lovely appearance. The staff are all friendly and happy...

Greeted by friendly and efficient receptionist and in our room within minutes of parking up. Clean comfortable room, quiet location, hotel tastefully decorated and we slept very well. The breakfast was awesome - a true "English" with...

Beautiful hotel from the outside which continued inside. Warmly greeted upon arrival. We stayed in room number 8, double room. Great decor and the room was extremely clean and presentable (and hot!). A sparkling bathroom, sink, taps, bath and mirrors. Very comfy bed with big pillows and a thick duvet. Personally one of the best hotels I have stayed in....

Invited to a family 40th birthday party so stopped the night. Reception superb. Very friendly, informative and efficient. Room comfotable and, other than some mould in the bath, clean. Bar snacks well presented and tasty. Breakfast very good, but a small choice.

An excellent experience for an overnight stay in quiet comfort, close to the A12 near Chelmsford. The reception staff were welcoming and efficient; our impeccable room was well-equipped and comfortable. We returned from an evening party well past midnight, and were greeted by the helpful night staff. We slept well and enjoyed an excellent, relaxed buffet-style breakfast next morning, with...

My 2nd stay here. We stayed here for a night just before christmas.The rooms are spacious and bed was comfortable. The staff were great and very friendly. We stayed for dinner and entertainment as there was a singer. The night was amazing we even danced. Breakfast was the best. I will visit this hotel again.

Found this place on groupon and was t sure what to expect- but for £100ish it was worth a risk, we upgraded to a deluxe room for an additional £20.
