The staff were friendly and informative about the history of the hotel. The hotel is rather worn out and run down. It could do with freshening up. The shower in our room could not be adjusted to less than boiling, so was unusable. The windows did not stop the noise from the street below. It is in ...

This was our second visit in four months. The hotel is very central and has an ample car parking area. The room was a little cold on this visit although the bathroom was very warm with underfloor heating. The double bed was small but comfortable. The staff were very efficient but perhaps lacked a ...
We stayed only one night. The hotel was pleasant enough for a short stay and the staff were really friendly but the tv didn’t work in our room and when we enquired about it we were told the system was off and would only be back on Monday.

Essex is an historic county, packed with stunning remnants of its rich past, which has been shaped by everyone from the Romans and Normans to the Saxons and the Vikings. Today, you'll find evidence of their influence in a variety of historic buildings and attractions, such as the ruined Roman temple in Colchester, the Saxon Chapel of Bradwell on Sea and the Norman-era Hedingham Castle. Rather than booking into a sleek, chic contemporary hotel, you can add an extra dimension to your holiday by booking into one of the many historic hotels in the county. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, from charming B&Bs to upmarket, country lodges.
Thaxted is an ideal town for anyone with even a passing interest in history. It can trace its roots to beyond its first entry in the Domesday Book, in the 9th century. An idyllic town, it boasts spectacular, rolling countryside and a skyline that includes excellent examples of both Georgian and Medieval architecture. For those who like their history to be purchasable, Thaxted has a healthy amount of antique shops and a market that takes over the main street, every Friday. When it comes to historic hotels, the Sleepview B&B is one of the best.
Although not directly tied in to Thaxted's history, the Sleepview B&B is well appointed to make the most of what this town has to offer. The accommodation is light and airy and decorated in a warm and welcoming style. Despite being in an historic town that has seen the likes of Dick Turpin and Sir John Betjeman pass through its borders, this historic hotel is full of all the modern amenities that you'd expect from 21st century accommodation, including free WiFi, flat-screen TVs and large walk-in showers.
The Sleepview B&B also puts you within easy access of a range of local, historic attractions, including Audley End House and Gardens, Hadleigh Castle and the Duxford War Museum. In addition, you'll find it close to some of Essex's most picturesque villages, such as Saffron Walden and Great Barfield.
Essex is a county brimming with history. Booking a room in an historic hotel is a great way to ensure that you see the sights you want to.
