          Sorry but not alot--- management staff had an unhealthy attitude problem.

          We did not like the fact that although we were residents and friends from london came to see us---we booked a evening meal in the resturant only to be told when we sat down at 7.45pm that there would not be table service!

          I liked staying at the White Hart, however feel that our room was in need of some refurbishment, I.E. curtains were hanging down.

          I stayed there because of its location in the Town Centre. I am not keen on out of town budget hotels which is all Braintree otherwise has to offer.

          Barmaid was a bit offhand - and there was no shampoo/shower gel in my bathroom.Otherwise - no complaints.

          The staff were extremely polite and friendly. Could not do enough to help.

          The hotel was rather run down. There were large chips out of the wall, the bathroom where the grouting was, was black in colour and the beds were lumpy so I didnt sleep a wink.

          The staff are friendly and welcoming and the service good. I always enjoy my stay.

          The White Hart is an old hotel with genuine character. Unfortunately the rooms are not air conditioned, and each time I have stayed it has been high summer and difficult to sleep at night. This stay it was the hottest day of the year and I was in a stuffy room on the sunny side of the street. Fortunately I was able to borrow a fan from a conference room, with staff agreement, wedge the sash window up with a cardbnoard box and balance the fan on the window sill from which it ran all night, enabling some sleep under the sheet from the duvet. I returned the fan in the morning.

          We stayed in a room in the old part of the building. Historic more than old, as the building is timber framed, and all odd angles and nooks and crannies. It looked a bit tired on first impression, but actually turned out to be very spacious and comfortable. A great quirky room. We were above the bar, but had a great nights sleep. Staff and food were very good.

          The furnishings are very tired, and putting MDF furniture in such an old room should be a criminal offense.

          I was disappointed with the room that I booked. The toilet ran all night. Very poor selection of tv channels. The curtains over the windows ar in need of repair.

          The location was good but that's all I liked. The room was cramped, creaky floors, stuffy. It was warm so I asked for a fan but was told they didn't have one and to open the window! ( it was already open).I Saw a fan for 10 pounds Room was over the bar and was noisy So I asked to be moved but was told all rooms were booked but saw a room empty the next day! Radiator was on all the time with no knob to turn it off. When going I wasent asked if everything was ok. I have more complaints but it makes no difference because this will be ignored

          Good quality breakfast - it set us up for the day.

          Quality of room furniture rather 'tired'.

          As a visiting American on an "ancestor hunt," being able to stay in an inn that existed when my ancestors lived in Essex and where they must have visited the pub many times in the 1600's was a great thrill. The staff was very nice and welcoming and helpful and the food in the dining room was good.

          The hotel is old, about 400 years old, so the bathrooms have been added or squeezed in. Some visitors might not like this, but I felt you can't hold a historic property to "Holiday Inn" standards.

          I asked for information about buses on a Sunday morning and I was adviced to get a taxi. However, taxis are few and far between on a Sunday and the taxi company that did pick me up charged me a double rate for a Sunday!!!!!!!! I think hotel staff should make guests aware of this if they have to travel on a Sunday morning.

          staff are your best asset, although the hotel was extremely busy nothing was to much trouble either in the bar or restaurant.

          we stayed in room 3 and found the only way to keep the door closed was to lock it.

          Everything was clean and tidy. The staff were welcoming and friendly.Breakfast was excellent. The room was spacious and we weren't disturbed by noise even though there were two functions on the Saturday night. Bath towels were large!

          The charm of the building, the location and staff.
