Friendly, helpful staff but hotel is old
Friendly, helpful staff, however this is an old, tired hotel. I was also kept awake by noisy, drunk guests (not the hotel’s fault though).

Need a revamp
Hotel feels a little in need of a revamp. Staff friendly and ok for a night away on a business trip. But not one looking to go back to again.

8/10 Very good

Very comfy bed and clean room. Excellent tea/coffee making facilities. Bar food was freshly cooked and very tasty. Very accessible to Chelmsford centre and our daughter's university. It was a bit noisy as our room was onto the main road, but given the location it was to be expected.
