Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Minutes away from Chelmsford racecourse, loads of free parking, the staff were really good giving me the feeling they were proud of their hotel and to work there. I loved the new design with a combined reception, bar area and office. A great place to be and work.
