This is a perfectly good budget hotel. The room was clean and most facilities as expected. Free wi-fi. Comfy bed. Polite, friendly staff. Most of our issues were eventually resolved but were as follows: - room phone not working which meant we had to traipse to reception

Please can anyone advise how far from the train station on foot the hotel is thanks
The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from Marks Tey station which involves crossing at least one busy road. I’d suggest asking the hotel if they have a bus to collect / drop guests

"Ask for a room at the front of the hotel to reduce exposure to traffic noise from the A12."
"Any room, but take a heater in cold weather"
"Room 170 overlooks the front carpark at end of corridor and was perfect -quiet as requested."
"Afternoon Tea by the window is a must if you have the time."
"Get a room on the 2nd (upper floor) well away from the function room."
US$66 - US$135 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
