9 mature men went to Essex to play a number of golf courses in the area and we made Boswell house our centre for the 4 days. We were well looked after by Steve and Andrea and they made us all feel at home. They even went to the extend of getting in some of our favourite beers. Everyone enjoyed the stay and would go back.

Room tip: All seemed good

I've Stayed here for a few months during the week due to work commitments. I park my car on a Monday and drive away on a Friday saving a small fortune on car paking as there is no cost. The hotel is situated a close walk from the town centre. The room is always clean and tidy, the couple who running the place are always really helpful. Breakfast is just right with branded condiments and it's always freshly made and served hot there is also a restaurant serving excellent home cooked food in the evening. I would 100% stay here again its just a shame my work at Chelmsford is comming to a end as it is proper home from home.

I have been staying in this hotel for several nights a week for four years and would not consider any other hotel in Chelmsford.
The rooms are comfortable and clean, free WIFI and parking and all within 5 minutes walk of the town centre
I find I am treated as well now as I was when I first started staying in this hotel, nothing is too much trouble.
When people look on TripAdvisor for reviews they often only look at the first few, keep looking down the list to hotels like this one because ranking in the review list is based not on the quality rating of the reviews but on the number of reviews sent in (or on how much a hotel is willing to spend with the review site).
The best testament I can give is that the majority of guests in this hotel are regulars who keep coming back - ask yourself - why is that?

Room tip: All the rooms are good

Very nice comfortable room, single bed, shower and toilet facilities, TV and tea / coffee making bits. Reasonably quiet, despite being close to main road. A good ten minutes walk from Chelmsford Station. Tesco store a few minutes away, as other retail shops.
The owners were friendly and helpful, nice to talk with them. The breakfast was good, considering I rarely have a breakfast, juice, coffee, yogurt/fruit and toast was good to start off my day!

Room tip: Single room is on ground floor, fairly quiet. Other rooms upstairs.
