A written review Too little too late.
The room bedding was clean and the bed was comfortable. But, it was not a pleasant stay. The carpeting in the room looked terribly dirty. The room is so small. There is not 1 hook to hang a towel on and the built in has a few hangers for clothes. We were in the family room for 3 and we had nowhere to put our things but on the window ledge. No soap, no tolietries, no breakfast, though it's calls itself a B and B. We were in a room located directly on top of the bar. On Kereoke night the noise was so LOUD, it was coming directly up the side of the wall. Like NO insulation. It was horrible. We had just flown in that day from the States and were so tired but sleeping was impossible. We stayed here for 3 nights and did whatever we could just to NOT be in the room. The housekeeping was bizarre. The first day, I noticed everyone put their dirty towels outside the door. When we returned later in the day, clean towels were piled in front of our door, ON THE FLOOR! The room was not picked up, no beds made, nothing. The next day, I didn't bother to pick our things up or hide valubles because no one had been in the room to clean it the day before. This time we returned to the clean towels on the bed, beds made and the room had been cleaned.

would do it again
Location was great for our needs. Room although a little small was very cozy and very clean. They can use a couple hooks to hang clothing and towels but this is minor. Christine and staff were very friendly. Would definitely stay here again

Midweek break
Attention to cleanliness lacking . Toothpaste splashes on ensuite wall, Kettle area dirty. Stayed with my daughter, easy access to Colchester, but didn't sleep very well in front room on main road & right next to train track. Although very welcoming on arrival & fresh towels daily. Room cold & only one mirror which was so high we couldn't see in it !! But full of character

Excellent4.0 / 5
Very satisfied
Accommodated me with a late check in at short notice due to my train being delayed, relatively quiet for rooms above a pub which closes early if it's not busy. Although the train at the nearby level crossing can be heard, it didn't keep me awake.

Convenient and comfortable
The place is OK for a short stay, the staff are very courteous and friendly and the inn is reasonably priced. Will definitely use it again.
