I booked afternoon tea for my daughter as a surprise. The staff went above and beyond for her - the table was decorated, they let us put banners on the mirror and brought her in a piece of birthday cake with a huge sparkler on top and sang to her. The food was also superb and excellent value for money. A lovely afternoon was had by all. I can't recommend The County Hotel highly enough! Collapse

The staff are a strong factor in making this hotel different from the rest. They tailor their service to suit the individual so it's not 'one size fits all'. They are not your usual waiters/waitresses or bar servers etc but have lots of specialised knowledge in the varied products they are selling e.g.which tonic goes best with the 30 varieties of gin they stock (rhubarb was our personal favourite). There can even tell you the perfect cup of tea to go with your snack or meal and show how it is ideally brewed. Ask away about the varied ciders or many cocktails and you'll definitely learn a thing or two. The chefs here make perfect meals with many of the ingredients sourced from around Essex. The breakfast menu is one of the most extensive we've seen. The hotel is clean and fresh with various conference rooms and 'The Chrystal Ballroom' which is regularly a venue for weddings/birthdays, dinner and dances. Spotlessly clean rooms can be chosen to suit you pocket or preference i.e. Premier or apartment or standard. The County Hotel is 5 minutes walk from the busy Chelmsford Town Centre and the train station even closer. The County is not a 'chain' hotel but individually owned by the same family for many years. The fact that it has been one of the most popular in Chelmsford for years speaks for itself. You will not be disappointed! Collapse
