Thank you for your glowing review on most aspects of our hotel, it is always wonderful to hear our guests enjoyed our facilities both in the hotel and restaurant. I apologise there were some items that we didn't meet your expectations on. It would have been wonderful if you could have advised of the room number to enable me to ascertain whether it was Essex hard water or uncleanliness from my housekeeping team. I hope this doesn't deter you from staying with us again when you are next in the area. Jason Bartella Managing Director

Thank you for your kind review and for rewarding us with 5 stars. I am so pleased you chose to celebrate such a joyous occasion with us and it is wonderful your Mum and all of the party had a wonderful time. I am pleased you found the Ingatestone Room to be a perfect fit for the celebration and that you found the service from our staff to be helpful and accommodating. It is wonderful to hear you will be returning to us for future celebrations.
