Last Friday I held my Mad Hatters Tea Party for friends and family. They're was nearly 40 ladies all dressed in Mad hats and we had a live singer. Mulberry House went out of their way for us making my birthday party a truly memorable day. I held my daughters wedding here in January and plan to do more events...

I spent a delightful 10 weeks staying during the week whilst working on an assignment in Chelmsford. The staff where always friendly, happy and helpful. The rooms are all light and airy and the beds comfortable. The grounds are a delight to walk around to relax after a hard days work. I would recommend very highly this wonderful Georgian Hotel.

On arrival hotel looked fantastic, checked in and then followed a young lady to the 'courtyard ' tiny room ( looked like a room from a Butlins site) read the reviews previously and lots of messages from the management to say the rooms were down for refurb during 2016-2017 . Given that the car park only had 4 other cars...

What a gem of a place. We had afternoon tea in a conservatory area with a delightful view overlooking the garden & huge pond which is obviously a backdrop for the weddings they have here. Everything about the tea was nice & fresh with a huge choice of teas. Scones were served piping hot. This was certainly the best afternoon...

Dear Arby27 Thank you for your lovely words. We really do pride ourselves on the quality of Tea service.

Stayed here for work it was the closest hotel to the job and the price was amazing. I stayed in the main house and had a very comfortable nights sleep and the breakfast was outstanding. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay again and recommend it to anyone.

I booked what I thought was a large double room as shown on your website for Valentine's day but the room I actually received was probably half the size. The room shown in the picture on your website is a large room with plenty of space, the room we were actually shown to, Apple room, hardly had space to walk...

Dear Kevin H, Thank you for choosing to stay at Mulberry House and taking the time out to give us your constructive criticism. We do not advertise our rooms by their size, only as a standard or classic double, whether located in the Main House or our more affordable Courtyard rooms. I do apologize if this was unclear at point...

We attended this venue for our friends wedding reception. The grounds are beautifully maintained, staff were very friendly and attentive and the food delicious. The decor was a little dated inside but still very clean throughout.

Booked this as a treat for me and my mum. House and grounds were beautiful (even though it was snowing/raining). Staff were welcoming and attentive, our teapots were never empty. Small selection of cakes but high quality. Scones were the best part as they tasted home made and were still warm. All in all, a lovely afternoon tea.

Stayed here for one night whilst in the area on business. The rooms were small and basic but with very comfortable beds.
