Positive Reviews

Appealing location

This hotel places you within walking distance of Chelmsford city centre and thus within a short stroll of many of the area’s attractions You’ll also find that plentiful area attractions are no more than 30 minutes away in the car.

Stylish surroundings

The somewhat disappointing exterior of this hotel offers no clue about the style you’ll find inside The bar and dining rooms are decorated in an undeniably hip style and you’ll find pop art adorning the walls Make the most of it by booking one of the New York style rooms.

Good food

Whether commenting on the breakfast or the evening meals, guests tend to describe the food on offer at this hotel as delicious Not only will you find the food of a high standard, the service is excellent as well Top marks all round.

Negative Reviews

Plumbing problems

All too often, guests report negative experiences with the plumbing in this hotel. It seems that the water pressure is way too low, making showers an unimpressive experience. Whether you’ll have enough hot water to run a bath also appears doubtful.

Rooms can feel cold

Some guests found that the rooms at the Best Western Atlantic were a little too chilly for their liking There are in-room air-conditioning and heating units but they don’t seem to be exceptionally effective and are also rather noisy.

Some noise issues

A small number of guests mention traffic noise from the surrounding streets, but the main cause of noise here seems to be inconsiderate guests returning from a night out in Chelmsford or attending a function in the hotel The staff don’t seem too keen to intervene.
