Thank you for your review following your recent visit. I am pleased that you enjoyed your christmas meal, the accommodation and breakfast, however disappointed to hear about the issues with the sauce bottles, which I will get the team to look into as they should not be this way. I do hope that the positives outweighed this small issue and we will be able to welcome you back again soon. Jason Bartella Managing Director

Nice hotel but a bit characterless

10/12/2016 Bubbles73uk, Weedon Bec, United Kingdom

Ivy Hill Hotel is a Victorian country house, next to the A12. The general standards are good but in my opinion not worth the money (I paid £90 for the night). It is very obvious that the hotel is par... more

Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. Sorry that you did not feel the hotel had enough character, although we are marketed by Best Western the hotel is independently owned and is not 'part of a chain', we pride ourselves on our high standards, great service and being value for money so I am surprised you felt that at £90 including breakfast we were expensive. We are a 3 star hotel just outside the city centre and our rates are comparable with similar properties close by. I will get the heating in all of the bathrooms checked to find the problem you mentioned and get it resolved and will also have management speak to the bar staff. I do hope if you needed accommodation in Chelmsford again you would return to stay with us. Jason Bartella Managing Director
