    Beautiful surroundings. Peaceful.

    Tv could be labelled to say 'master switch by bed'. Was not obvious to start with. Final details of how to arrive (from London)by car could be improved and Borough Road is also 'Entrance to UoEssex.

    Staff were polite and friendly. Paint flaking off the walls in the dining room. Bathroom badly needs work ---- rust behind taps.

    The bed was only 4ft 6ins wide and my wife and I are used to a larger size. When one is paying £90 per night you would expect to be nearly as comfortable as you are at home with at least a 5ft bed. Also there was only one armchair ?

    Conveniently located with respect to Essex University

    bath shower facilities just adequate; all charm destroyed; electric fireplace etc.; private anniversary celebrations left hardly any parking place and the parking is big....
