About the hotel
The BEST WESTERN Ivy Hill Hotel is set in a nine acre site in the village of Margaretting near Chelmsford.

Within a recently built extension you will find Bartellas', an independently operated restaurant, offering good food, professionally served in smart but comfortable surroundings. Suitable for all the family and for any occasion, Bartellas' has something to tempt everyone from the A la Carte menu with its regularly changing specials, or opt for one of the Traditional Favourites.

Created to open all day and offer an oasis of calm for our guests and offering Afternoon Teas, Sandwiches and snacks.

Better off in a Travelodge for half the price.
Very disappointed with my stay.
For the price of the room, I expected a bit of middle-class luxury but the only difference between this hotel and a Travelodge is the wallpaper. I was left waiting at the bar for over 10 minutes whilst one of the staff walked in and out refilling the fridge and saying, "One moment." I was woken up at 6:00 in the morning by some industrial rattling noise and then was unable to get back to sleep (alarm set for 8:30). They have some confusing policy about having £40.00 of your debit card money on stand by. The receptionist didn't ask how my stay was, I would have told her all of this and not left this review as they clearly don't care about improving service in the place.
One Night at the Ivy
Room 25 (I have had better rooms) - very creaky floors, also quite loud with noise filtering in from neighbouring rooms.
The air- vent in the bathroom - very loud ...
The bathroom, although clean and functional, is an small size. (Example: if you were sitting on the WC and wanted to watch the TV, - but cant open the door because of your legs...)
Room rate pricey at over GBP 110,- and the bed itself is far from the standard of other chains No topper - Others such as some Premier Inns, Days Inn, Marriott and Holiday Inn Express do much better beds.
At breakfast - the was help yourself to tea, coffe, bread ( limited choice) muesil, yogurts, cold meats, cheeses and fruits but no warm buffet so cook breakfast made-to-order, however the fried eggs were evidently pre-cooked, kept warm and ruther unsatisfactory... The rest of breakfast was fine with enough to fil.. Staff ( reception check-in/ check ot ) very friendly and made up for the dissapointing breakfast.
