"Stayed for v festival"
Clean hotel, close to amenities, staff were very friendly. Only downside was the lock on the hotel room door was very temperamental. Staff had to fix on both occasions but other than that, a good place to stop. For anyone else using for v festival, and this isn't a fault with the hotel, but taxis back were very expensive from the site to the hotel so probably not ideal for that, but as I say, this is an aside and no way reflects the hotel or review

"Like hanging out with old friends"
They adopted us like family. They were fun to be with and extremely helpful with all our needs. The building is old and lacks a lift. So navigating the narrow steep stairs can be be difficult. But the bartender was more than helpful carrying our luggage up. The town centre is a short walk and well worth seeing. It is the site where the Mayflower launched with the Pilgrims for America. And Blossom the cook makes incredible meals at a modest price.

"Nice Hotel but hidden away."
The Hotel is not easy to find nor see at night as it is dark this time of year early (November). I did drive passed it and could not see a sign. I rang the Hotel and they did give me direction AND they both stayed in the street to make sure I could find it, this was very helpful and they didn't have to do it. The staff was very helpful and friendly, also the room was clean, tidy and above all vary warm and after working outside all day this was a must. The following morning the breakfast was spot on and I went to work a happy bunny. Hotel, staff and price spot on.

"Extraordinary, budget hotel"
Hotel location is not very helpful, because is a bit in the middle of nowhere, but if you have a car is absolutely fine since is only 3-4 miles from the city centre and is in a very quiet location. Also, next to the hotel is a Shell petrol station where you can put petrol if you need, and I think, am not sure of that, is 24h open. The hotel reception is very clean and well preserved. The staff is very polite, warm, welcomed and really professional, trying always to help. The breakfast is of good quantity and the quality is nice, too. Of course, the coffee is a machine type so is just OK, but nothing extreme.

"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.

    Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Essex

    The county of Essex may be close to London, but it's also home to some of the most beautiful countryside in England. Couples and families looking to enjoy a budget break in Essex will find a selection of two star hotels to suit all tastes, from independent hotels near the coast in Harwich to guest houses in Clacton-on-Sea and chain hotels in Colchester.

    Cheap Hotels in Essex

    Essex's two star hotels offer modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. Most provide free WiFi, with many offering a complimentary breakfast and tea/coffee makers in guest rooms as well as on-site parking - a boon for families travelling with heavy luggage. Smaller independent hotels and guest houses are often happy to provide assistance booking tickets and tours, so you can make the most of your break. The towns of Colchester and Basildon are excellent choices for those looking to enjoy the shops and restaurants the county has to offer, whilst couples and families who prefer to be by the seaside will find two star establishments in Canvey Island offer excellent value for money.

    Activities for Couples and Families in Essex

    There's plenty to do in Essex, whether you're enjoying a romantic break or a family holiday. Get away from it all and explore the surrounding countryside, just the two of you - Essex is home to more than 3,500 miles of bridleways and footpaths. 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.

    Families can enjoy activities such as white water rafting at Lee Valley White Water Centre or head for Colchester Zoo or Marsh Farm Adventure Park, where the kids can enjoy pony or tractor rides as well as birds of prey displays, pony grooming and more. 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.

    Hotels Close to the Best Shops in Essex

    Essex has some excellent shopping centres where you'll find everything from high street brands to designer labels. Places like Intu Lakeside are a popular choice for families, with a range of shops and restaurants under one roof - great for keeping everybody happy. If it's independent retailers you're after, Chelmsford High Street is the place to head, or why not visit the Wilkins Factory in Tiptree to take a guided tour and pick up some of their famous jam? After a busy day of shopping, you'll find shopping centres such as Culver Square in Colchester have plenty of chain restaurants to choose from for a meal out, or you could always pick up some local produce at the farmer's markets, held in most towns, and head back to your hotel.

    Affordable Hotels with Excellent Amenities in Essex

    When it comes to an affordable break, Essex's range of two star hotels won't disappoint families, couples and solo travellers. Most hotels offer amenities such as a complimentary breakfast and free WiFi, so it's easy to stay connected, whilst on-site parking at most town centre hotels means you don't need to worry about loading the car up with heavy luggage.
