Pocket Guide: Best Western Hotels in Essex

One of Britain's most trusted and popular hotel brands, Best Western offers several elegant hotels in Essex that are ideal for business and leisure travellers. They are conveniently located close to the historic city of Chelmsford and the ancient town of Colchester, both of which benefit from fast rail links to central London.

Visit Chelmsford for the Day

See this city's beautiful Gothic cathedral that is more than 800 years old and was remodelled in stone, flint and brick in the Tudor period. Take the family to the Tropical Wings Zoo and see its exotic animal species, then explore the Essex Police Museum for an interesting insight into local history. Chelmsford is only a few miles from one of Essex's finest country houses, Ingatestone Hall, which has existed since the 16th Century. It is noted for its splendid Petre family portrait collection, and is still a family home, regularly open to visitors on scheduled dates from Easter to September.

Free WiFi in All Best Western Hotels

Whichever Best Western hotel in Essex you choose, you will benefit from free WiFi so you will have no trouble staying in touch with friends and family on social media. Easily check your flight reservations, book tickets to local attractions online, or make restaurant reservations. Additionally, some Best Western hotels offer high-speed internet connections that are ideal for business guests that need to arrange Skype conference calls.

Explore Ancient Colchester

Britain's oldest town, Colchester is home to a fine Norman castle that was built on a former temple dating back to Roman times. In fact, this striking landmark has the largest Norman keep in Europe, and is remarkably intact for its age. The town is also noted for its Firstsite contemporary art venue, which showcases the artworks of many renowned contemporary artists such as Turner Prize-winning sculptor Richard Deacon and Modernism art icon Barbara Hepworth. Colchester also has an impressive zoo, and is the location of the East Anglian Railway Museum where you can learn about the history of the local railways and the Great Eastern Railway that operated between 1862 and 1922.
