We went to pontlands for a family meal on Sunday. There was 8 of us. 7 adults and one child. Very impressed by the service and the setting. The food was really nice. Not sure of the cost as someone else paid but well worth a look.

On arrival, staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Staff explained where the facilities were in the hotel and when we could access them. The room was lovely, very clean and had everything that you would need for a relaxing stay. The hospitality is outstanding! The food was so good, I wanted to make it myself! Again, staff were very helpful...

The rooms are large, immaculate and full of all the amenities you could need. All staff are attentive, friendly and are willingly to accommodate any request where possible from...

Went here the day after myself and my husband got married for festive afternoon tea . Was nicely displayed and a nice seller of cakes and sandwiches. When it came to paying the bill was way over what it should have been and the waitress didn't seem to get what out issue was . It wasn't until 10 minutes of...

Thank you for your review following your recent visit for Afternoon Tea and congratulations on your wedding. The additional money you are referring to is a discretionary service charge, it is noted on the menu that this will be added and would have been labelled on the bill, as the name suggests it is discretionary and if you felt that...

We stopped overnight whilst attending a local event and were very pleased with the room and standard of the hotel. Beautiful decor and a very spacious room which we couldn't fault. Staff were very polite and attentive we would definitely stop here again if in the area.

Receptionist very pleasant but didn't explain about the whereabouts of restaurant until asked and no mention of wifi and assumed that I knew about the facilities. The room was excellent but bed a bit hard. The food was excellent but no atmosphere in the...

Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. I am sorry that you struggled to find the entrance, the door is often closed to keep the warmth in but it is a well lit entrance clearly marked with trees either side of the door.

Pontlands Park Hotel is situated in the large village of Great Baddow close to Chelmsford. Ironically, sat navs appear to struggle with the postcode, and we found it was not the easiest place to find. Suggest using Google maps on your phone if you are struggling, as this provided an accurate and reliable means of navigation. The hotel is approached...

Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us, we have never had people mention that they struggled to find us when using a sat nav so we will look into this further. It seems that you only saw the car park at the front of the car park, we also have plentiful further parking to the rear...
