    Location

    The wi fi didn't work in the bedrooms it was the main reason for booking the hotel as I had lots of work to do and needed Internet access, no amount of calling reception helped

    I was meeting friends in the restaurant for the evening, so it was ideal to stay overnight.

    I have done similar visits before and would say that the restaurant menu/food has gone downhill. As a supposed Italian restaurant it was particularly poor. I would not be confident to recommend the restaurnt for an evening meal.

    Due to the fact we booked through Booked.net the staff were not very helpful or friendly and they made us wait over an hour and a half to book in while they waited for confirmation from Booked.net although we had a confirmation email that we could show them.

    Position of the hotel is ideal for the centre of Chelmsford, staff are really good with special mention to the guys in the breakfast restaurant, nothing was too much trouble.

    Location in relation to the City Centre and to the Cathedral where I was attending a function, was very good.(A Five minute walk). The staff were attentive without being overbearing and the general ambience was relaxing. The restaurant was excellent value for money. Although I didn't travel by car, there was a good sized and convenient car park attached to the hotel. Very pleased with my stay and I would go there again.

    The restaurant looked pretty good and I'd of liked to have tried it. Italian,

    There was no lift and I had a heavy suitcase. They did offer help but I thought what the point is as I'm just as capable as a porter, but if I was advanced in years this could be a problem. The staff could be described as not exactly friendly and chatty, and I felt slightly 'in the way': Checking in was problematic as they don't let you in the room until 3 o' clock which is rare in my experience and I travel a lot. As I was going to a wedding immediately after check in, this could have been a problem. Luckily the woman checked to see if the room was ready and by chance it was, but I got the impression that they were doing me a huge favour in letting me in the room 'early' at 12:30. The next day after the wedding I got a curt polite phone call at 11:00 asking when I was planning to check out, as check out was at 11:00. I put the phone down and rushed around the room to get out before they levied a late check out charge. When I went down to check out, I said 'hi' to the woman at reception, and she looked daggers at me and told me to 'wait' as she was dealing with someone else (my friend who was also checking out). She asked me for my key (plastic card) which I didn't have, I'd left it in my hire car. If you lose your key (plastic card), they charge you five pounds. I balked at this and said it was only a plastic card; she told me that they come all the way from Germany those cards! I wasn't happy and left. The taxi driver on the way to collect my hire car confirmed my suspicions that they were a hard and “Not very nice lot” and he said I was better of going to another hotel around the corner (sorry forgot the name) I won’t be going back in a hurry. The place was clean with ample parking.

    Freinldy staff who seemed to care about you, rather than going gthrough the motions. An ideal location, slightly out of the way but close to enough to the nightlife and shopping areas. Fatastic breakfast and simple finishing touches, like a complimetary bottle of water in the room.

    Getting into the car park could of been sign posted a little better (and a sign explaining how to gain entry) you needed to drive at the barrier and it would raise automatically. Fried eggs a little greasy.
