We booked two double rooms, and they were immaculate. Rooms 1 and 2 were situated in the main building at the front with bay windows and a very adequate shower room, with lovely fluffy towels. We stayed 3 nights and the rooms were tidied each day, with good tea/coffee making facilties. Breakfasts were very good with good choices - homemade...

There had been a mix up with our booking and so although we were accommodated it wasn't in the room we had requested (lower floor). I have a knee problem so this was a bit of an issue as were right at the top of the house in the attic. Add into that we stayed during a heatwave meaning the...

My husband and I stayed in room 3 and loved the rustic country feel of the room, very spacious and stunning décor. The staff are extremely welcoming and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. I would like to give very high praise to the two young ladies in the kitchen during breakfast. Bethan was very attentive and...

We stayed in Room 10 in one of the annexes. It was a pleasant enough room but the double bed, with a wooden frame took up a large part of the floor area. There was no real space to put our bags so they were tucked away on the floor in a corner hoping that we would not fall over...

My daughter and I spent a Saturday night in a room that was in a building around a courtyard to the back of the main building. The room was spotless and large with a king size bed and a single. Bottles of water were in the room which was great as we had not had time to buy any on...

Great location near the high street and only a short walk down to the riverside pubs and promenade park. The room was in a building around a small courtyard with a patio garden where you could enjoy sitting in the sun. Weather permitting you could have your breakfast 'Al fresco' on the patio or in the bright conservatory. The room...

Great stay, lovely room and friendly staff. Stayed a weekend while visiting family in Maldon. Would highly recommend. Easy to come and go with key for front door, clean and crisp throughout guest house and a good nights sleep. Breakfast was nice with plenty of options. Will be returning.

Absolutely beautiful. Fantastic four poster, wonderful food and very friendly staff. We stayed in the Limes suite for our wedding night and it was so romantic. Candles in the room, rose petals on the bed, balloons, chocolates and brandy. Thank you for making our first night as husband and wife so very special. Kind regards, Ian and Sarah Bovingdon
