"Great location"
This hotel is fairly basic, but had everything we needed. It is worth noting that this hotel does not have any accessible showers, something I was not aware of when I booked. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay and would probably use this hotel again.

"Better than anticipated"
The room was quieter than I had thought it would be, since it was quite near the busy A12. However, the bed was rather too hard for my aging hips. My sleep was interrupted by discomfort in the hip joints. A softer cover over the mattress would have been ideal.

"Beautiful Lakeside setting"
The perfect getaway! A wonderful time, very little light pollution so fantastic starry skies at night and quiet, secluded location. Tea, coffee, fresh milk, toaster, microwave, fridge, cereal, biscuits, knifes and forks, plates, bowls! Immaculately clean and fresh. Couldn't recommend highly enough! We'll be back for sure, can't wait for Summer!

"Lovely B&B, excellent service, great price"
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Waggon and Horses for 1 night whilst attending a wedding. The price for a double room was very reasonable and considerably cheaper than most of the surrounding options. The room itself was in a separate annex to the pub and nicely made up with all the basic requirements (tea, coffee, TV, etc). The bed was very comfortable and the early check in (1200) was a bonus. The full English breakfast on the Sun morning was very good and the continental options were of sufficient variety. The best feature of the place though is the excellent service provided by the owner. We left our car at the wedding venue on the Saturday and were struggling to get a taxi back to it on the Sunday morning. The owner had his girlfriend drive us to the place at no cost, a very nice gesture and one which epitomises the very helpful nature of the staff. Would stay there again and recommend it as a very good B&B.

"Cheap motel style accommodation"
Room was adequate but I couldn't have stayed more nights as we couldn't get a good night's sleep because of sounds coming from the other rooms.

The rooms were basic, fine if you just need a bed for the night, which we did. The restaurant and bar were undergoing renovation so some areas were closed off, I'm not sure if the renovations were to be extended to the hotel rooms but I'm hoping so. Our room was directly opposite the stairwell door which made a triple clunk every time somebody went through it. This happened a lot. At all hours. the shower, well the shower was not a shower. Considering such a small amount of water came out there appeared to be a small lake on the bathroom floor. The shower door was very effective. The breakfast however was great. Freshly cooked, full English, with tea, coffee, or juice, cereals and jams. Best part of the stay.

The county also has its fair share of historic country houses, including Audley End House and Gardens, one of the most spectacular stately homes in England - Paycocke's House with its beautiful cottage garden is also worth visiting.

If you're stuck for ideas, ask at your hotel and staff will usually be only too happy to recommend the best things to see and do in the local area.
