Stayed here for one night, so we could have a few drinks at a wedding. Nice pub. Room had every thing we needed. Very basic but absolutely no problem. Would defanitly stay there again.
Really quaint pub, with friendly staff. Great choice for breakfast!
staff readily upgraded when room found to be over heating .they have to cope with problems of an ancient listed building but it was still a very beautiful place to stay .food was excellent
The hotel was all we wanted, couldn’t fault it, but for light sleepers, beware! The hotel is directly under the flight path of Stansted Airport. During our stay there was 2 an hour landings during the night, which apparently are cargo flights, so for those who sleep less soundly, chose another hotel ...
Charming staff. Simple place Very old hotel so lovely and Tudor but grossly overheated. All other guests and staff said the same.
Greene King is one of Britain's leading pub and brewing firms, managing fantastic hotels all cross the country. In Essex, you can find several charming Greene King hotels that are ideal for extended breaks or nightly stopovers.
This fascinating open-air museum is a very short drive from Stansted Airport and well within reach of Greene King hotels. It comprises a specially reconstructed Norman motte-and-bailey castle and village that is the only site of its kind in the world. Learn about East Anglia's medieval roots, see the Fallow deer and other animals, and don't forget to visit the Castle Tea Room for some tasty, home-made cakes and other snacks. It's also celebrated for its House on the Hill Toy Museum, where children can observe more than 80,000 individual toys dating from the Victorian era to the late 20th century.
In northeast Essex, close to the Suffolk border, Dedham is a remarkably photogenic riverside community that is surrounded by lush water meadows and was once a prosperous wool centre. It was once the home of the acclaimed artist Alfred Munnings, who was celebrated for his horse paintings and spent much of his life at Castle House, a fine Tudor and Georgian landmark that is now a museum showcasing his great works.
Within easy reach of all Greene King hotels, Colchester is overlooked by one of England's earliest and best-preserved Norman castles, noted for its enormous keep. The town also features the oldest ruined church in Britain, which dates back to the 4th Century and is next to the Police Station. You can also observe the remnants of England's oldest town walls, built by the Romans in the 1st century and still partially intact today.
Near the outskirts of Colchester, this awe-inspiring Tudor palace, typically open to visitors from April to September, has a remarkable façade and beautiful Italian interior decor, and is recognised as the tallest Tudor Gatehouse in England. It's in ancient Colchester, which is estimated to be the oldest town in Britain and is home to a fantastic zoo and medieval castle, as well as plenty of excellent hotels and B&Bs for a great stay in one of the UK's more unusual locations.
