Great place to stay, felt very welcome as soon as I arrived. Staff were so helpful. Newly refurbished room with excellent facilities. Nice cozy bar with local ales and a real fire. Really can't think of a nicer hotel.

Stayed one night with a group booking recently. Communal areas tired and need of decoration. Our room was newly refurbished and to a high standard although small and a tight squeeze on the window side of the bed. Nice to have a mirror and chair near a socket to plug in a hair dryer (one supplied but could be a...

The improvements carried out since the new management team took over really have transformed this place. Re-decoration continues and each time we visit another area have been re-vampt sympathetically to reflect the age and character of the building. Staff and service vastly improved and we now choose this as a regular venue for a night out. Prices have remained very...

I recently spent an overnight stay on the Blue Boar hotel and was very impressed with the quality of facilities in my newly refurbished room. The bed was very comfortable. Service very friendly and the breakfast was freshly cooked - truly home made to order. In fact it was one of the nicest breakfast I have had in a long...

What a building! The food was good pub grub and the beer was good. Only slight disappointment being that we couldn't get in the room which had the open fire....was very envious!! Would definitely venture back next time we're in Maldon.

The room was very small and cold. The most important, there wasn't any HOT water in the bathroom! We visited on 29th December. The heating wasn't working properly. We were glad that at least the duvet was good and kept us warm. The staff at the bar were rude.

Being New Years Eve, we wanted to book somewhere to stay, close to the bar we was attending that evening. The room not only gave us an immaculate bed, but a room filled with extras. The reception also allowed us an extra 4 hours to check out, without charge. Both the service we received and the product itself is perfect.

A good evening at the Blue Boar. It's good to see that the Blue Boar is gaining popularity. We had reserved a table in the bar as there were ten of us. Beer was good, nicely kept. Not a big choice of wine, but this is not a wine bar. Friendly, good atmosphere and fairly busy.

Hello Tim, Thank you for your review, it’s nice to see that people are noticing all the changes we’re making around here. On that note, we have just introduced a brand new wine list; the list gives you more choice, and the wines are of a higher quality than the bottles we used to stock. If you’re nearby, do come...
