A basic smallish room which was in need of an update as it was in a poor state of repair/decoration! Frayed carpet & furniture needs attention. Bathroom needs some work & the shower was almost impossible to use! Expensive for what you got.

Good hotel and staff are good and friendly. The Hotel needs a bit of and upgrade. Our room was functional and clean but needs and updating. The positional of the hotel which was within a short walk of Chelmsford town centre and shops was excellent . The car park was large but again needed upgrading including the signage.

Nice play to stay the night
The hotel was easy to find with lots of parking available. It looks cosy and welcoming and staff were really nice. The bed was very firm and the duvet was thin, so not too comfy. The room was a bit chilly. It had an old fashioned heater in it but we didn’t think to put it on in time for it to make a difference. Overall it was ok, we didn’t notice anything being unclean and would stay again.
