You can park for free, check into one of 76 cosy, modern rooms with inclusive Wi-Fi and a sofa bed, then head to the Great Room Restaurant for a home-cooked meal. In the morning, an Express Start Breakfast is also included, helping you fuel up for a shopping spree at Freeport Braintree, or a ramble through Great Notley Country Park.

Less than 10 minutes from the wedding venues of Fennes, Gosfield Hall and Leez Priory, the pet-friendly hotel is also popular with families visiting Essex on holiday. Chelmsford City Racecourse is two miles away, and when the last horse has passed the post, the Lounge Bar makes a lively spot for drinks.
