Thank you for your review. Ivy Hill is situated next to the A12 between Chelmsford and Brentwood as published on our website. I am disappointed that you did not like our entry level bedrooms. Perhaps when you are in the area again, you stay with us and book one of our upgraded bedrooms; which you will find are more spacious and I do hope that your points won’t deter you from staying again.
