“2nd visit and just as good”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

I stayed at one of the apartments for 3 nights Jan 2013, almost a year after my previous stay. I am happy to say standards remain just as high as previously experienced. The apartments are easy to get to, easy to park up and comfortable to use. They are an excellent alternative to local hotels and in the same price range as a 4* hotel deal which makes them superb value.

Thank you for taking the trouble to write following your stay at one of the apartments. The aim of this facility is to provide a centrally placed and convenient 'home from home' and it is encouraging to hear that we have succeeded in this objective. Simon Larner

Having stayed at Channels Lodge Hotel on business for a few weeks the serviced apartments were recommended to me as an alternative to the hotel. great location, large apartments, beautifully decorated and maintained. The kitchen is well equipped and gives the business traveller a real 'home from home' experience. Highly recommended!

We stayed for three nights over a weekend with our baby and her grandparents. While the apartment was immaculate and location ideal there were several things that let it down. Although it is "self catering" it is only really set up for people grabbing a quick bite in the apartment. There was no dining table and limited cooking utilities making it difficult to cater for a family. Both bedrooms looked out onto a busy street and were noisy into the early hours of the morning. The apartment was unbearably hot (was reading 25 degrees in the middle of the night) and we had no way to regulate the temperature aside from opening the windows onto streets busy with pary goers (which then meant getting even less sleep!). The apartment is set up with two double rooms, enough space for 4 adults, however there was only one car parking space allocated. We enquired about both the car parking and the temperature control during our stay and were meant with unhelpful and unfriendly responses. We definitely wouldn't recommend staying here if you intended spending a lot of time in the apartment.

Stayed for one night as we had a wedding at hylands house.
The apartment is beautifully decorated, we had a twin room with en suite, main bathroom, double bedroom, kitchen/lounge with breakfast bar and a balcony!!
Very conveniently located near restaurants we were also provided with milk, cereal and bread for breakfast along with condiments and yogurts.
Free wifi!!! Free parking!!!!
And we paid less then we would staying in a hotel
Definitely would rather have my own apartment then being stuck in a hotel
Would 100% return

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment 4 with a river view

Having stayed in these apartments on business on numerous occasions, i would never choose to stay in a hotel in Chelmsford again. They are immaculately maintained and spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend to anyone.

These apartments, right in the centre of Chelmsford, were a very good alternative to a hotel. They were spacious, impeccably clean and well-designed with secure parking and all the facilities you might need for a stay on business. For example:
- There are restaurants and supermarkets nearby.
- WiFi is fast and free
- The kitchen has all the equipment needed
- The bed was large and comfortable with good linens
- The bathroom was spacious and had good quality toiletries
In short, an excellent base when visiting the area on business.

This is the ideal spot to stay for a London break but away from the hustle and bustle. 5 minutes walk from the centre of Chelmsford, 10 minutes walk from the train station and 25 in the train from Stratford. Beautifully decorated and maintained. Anything you need is sorted by Theresa who is so helpful and keeps the apartment perfect.
