Very enjoyable stay
We enjoyed our stay at the County Hotel. The staff was exceptional! The room was average but the bathroom was excellent. My only complaint was the noisy hall door located just outside our room.

The staff were accommodating and made sure my stay was pleasant. The food was excellent. Looking forward to staying there again during my next trip. Cute town with lots of shops and local pubs.

Visit to Chelmsford, Essex, UK
Chelmsford is a pleasant town with a fairly big shopping area/walking street and some interesting tourist sights. Chelmsford is serviced by train, by the Abellio Greater Anglia train Company, from Liverpool Street Station, journey takes about 30 min. and very frequently. Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the stay and walk around the town. The County Hotel is a nice old building, very helpful and pleasant staff, it is a comfortable hotel, with good service , the shower in the bath is a bit clumsy, but it does work fine, the food service and bar is very good.

County Hotel Chelmsford, Chelmsford
Only stayed a night was overpriced for what it was
Overpriced breakfast in the morning, was told it was possible to come in at night and night porter was available when we arrived back a couple staying at the hotel waited an hour late at night in the cold despite them ringing the door bell again and again

Nice enough stay but needs small touches
First of all, hotel staff were all absolutely lovely, very friendly and professional. Hotel was clean and accessible. My criticism is the small touches really - no water bottles provided in the room and cost £2 each bottle at the bar. Room clean but scruffy paintwork and damaged wood on bathroom door. Bathroom was tiny. Bed was not the most comfortable - a bit hard
