The staff is very helpful
the rooms are very dated and beds very small and not comfortable
The country house location.
Beautiful surroundings. Peaceful.
Tv could be labelled to say 'master switch by bed'. Was not obvious to start with. Final details of how to arrive (from London)by car could be improved and Borough Road is also 'Entrance to UoEssex.
Staff were polite and friendly. Paint flaking off the walls in the dining room. Bathroom badly needs work ---- rust behind taps.
The bed was only 4ft 6ins wide and my wife and I are used to a larger size. When one is paying £90 per night you would expect to be nearly as comfortable as you are at home with at least a 5ft bed. Also there was only one armchair ?
Conveniently located with respect to Essex University
bath shower facilities just adequate; all charm destroyed; electric fireplace etc.; private anniversary celebrations left hardly any parking place and the parking is big....
Other than B&B, I did not use any facility. But good secure parking facility adjacent to the hotel was welcome.
Clean and well presented, no excessive fuss but just good value
Very helpfull staff, the room was a standard size and good for the rate and the meals were very good. the general decor of the hotel appeared well maintained and clean
The TV was a bit small to watch comfortably room the bed
The barking dog in the room next door, if I had stayed more than one night this would have been a problem. The lady in the next room with the pooch was somewhat selfish. Perhaps the hotel could have advised of the local dog fanciers convention (true not sarcasm) before putting us in the room they did...
