"Historic hotel with wonderful staff"
I noticed a lot of low star reviews. I'm not sure what the fuss is about. Yes, the hotel is old, it was built in the 1400s, there is only so much they can do! However, both rooms I stayed in were perfectly clean, the sheets, towels, bathroom, everything. My first room, the shower had some water stains but, big deal, that doesn't mean it's dirty. A few nights in I came down with food poisoning from Nando's, I didn't leave my room all day. The staff was very, very kind and brought me some dry toast. The next day they came to check on me and make sure I was ok and if I needed anything. Two nights later, an extremely noisy and disgusting occupant moved in to the adjoining room. This person hacked up mucus and phlegm all night and then snored like a freight train. Later on, another occupant entered the room, just as sick, hacking and dry heaving, and then had EXTREMELY loud 'relations'. After that, the tv was at an obnoxious volume and more hacking. I went down to complain and was immediately moved into a better room. I don't know her name, but the woman with long, white/blondish hair and glasses is a SAINT. She was extremely kind and helped me with anything I needed. I would be happy to stay here again. People should understand that a hotel from the 1400s isn't going to be a modern Hilton or Radisson but, it's better because of it's history, character, and staff.

"Lovely staff"
Room was a great size and comfortable. Unfortunately the shower did not run hot water so i had to shower in another room but the staff were very helpful in making sure i had access to a shower when it transpired it wasn't fixable. I had to leave before breakfast was served but had dinner in the restaurant and the food was good as was the service.

"Close to the airport everything in the right place"
A very well priced room if you are planning an early takeoff from Stansted. The room was very well designed with plugs in the right place, spca for cases and a great shower room. Dinner was basic pub fare and a little noise from place traffic but nothing to spoil the overall high spec for the price and location.

    Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels in Essex

    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.

    Historic Hotels in Essex

    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.

    Dick Turpin and Sir John Betjeman

    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.

    Local Attractions

    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.
