Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The wheelchair accessible room was ok for a wheelchair user mirror and plugs right height. There were not enough towels, had to ask. There was no tv changer again, had to ask. The seat in the shower very insecure, I didn’t feel safe. The room was clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was truly awful 😞 my omelette yoghurt and rubbery , the cooked breakfast my husband had was grim, scrambled eggs horrible, the bacon and sausage not nice. Would we return?, no.

Stayed for two nights on business. Price was great! Check in and hotel service was as expected. The food in the restaurant was great. Had the mixed grill both nights and it was tasty! Steak cooked as ordered. Thanks to Keeva for great service!

I bring a group for football weekend at the mighty Accrington Stanley regularly and the Willows is ideal. The rooms are ideal spacious, comfortable and warm. The breakfast just hits the spot. The staff are always so friendly and can’t do enough for you. Each of our visits the lady manager,I can’t remember her name ,is always so cheerful and books us a taxi without any fuss. The owners should be so proud of the staff and this venue. My guests always insist I book here not just for value, which by the way is outstanding, bearing in mind we live in rip off Chelmsford where the local spiv hoteliers take the mick with prices tbh , but for the staff and accommodation. Thanks again see you soon can’t wait for next time

Had a great meal tonight with my wife and two kids. The servers Keeva, Molly and Liv were really helpful and nice to my children. The food was really good and didn't take long at all. Really grateful to have a dairy free kids meal option suitable for my youngest and different portion size options for my older toddler who eats a bit more.

Came in for a family meal, it was almost empty, but service was friendly and we were shown to a large table that had been pre set up for us. The coffee machine wasn't working, but other options were offered and service for food was swift. The food was fine, it's nothing amazing, but it was tasty enough and the portions were good. I had a tuna jacket potato and I felt they'd tried to eke out the tuna with extra mayonnaise which then just made it bland. It was fine, nothing more, nothing less. I've had the lasagne and chips in the past though and it's super delicious, so it depends what you have. Overall, it's a perfectly fine place to have a meal, the prices are reasonable and service friendly. Will use again.
