    Friendly staff and hotel convenient for the village of Writtle, which we needed to visit.

    Our bedroom needed some renovation, but never-the-less it was clean. Fairly small room, with only one easy chair, which was rather uncomfortably for one of us.

    I think you need to remoderised the Hotel, it is very 1980 and needs to be brought into the 2010.Very old fashisoned in general.

    Easy check in, very friendly staff & comfortable room. Delicious food in the restaurant. They have a 50% discount voucher on their site for use in the restaurant. Excellent value!

    we attended a golden wedding celebration and stayed overnight - therefore convenient; easy to find; easy parking

    we were requested to pay before seeing the room and found a lightbulb not working, and were given a replacement; the t.v. didn't work - was told they needed tuning! - feel such items should have been checked before payment requested

    Very good breakfast in a pleasant setting. The girls at reception were very helpful and charming.

    I absolutely hated the bed. The mattress was covered with plastic and was hot uncomfortable and noisy. There was no lift and no-one offered to help carry the case. I would not stay here again.

    Very pleasant and helpful reception staff.

    Internet not working. 1st day breakfast (mon morning) tasted like the oil needed changing - much better second day. No real problem though.

    good position for work

    Hotel rooms are a bit tired. I stayed in an executive single which was not as good as some ordinary rooms in other hotels I have stayed at.

    Bar staff were friendly.Room was clean and tea/coffee maker provided. Water pressure in bathroom sink and shower was very poor. Only a trickle of water came from the sink taps.

    We were in an attic room which was very poky and the slanted roof was so close to the bed it was very easy to hit you head off it. The facilites were poor. General areas had no character. No food available in the hotel when we arrived mid afternoon. Had to walk for 20 minutes to town centre for food. At 80 pounds for room only it was very poor value for money.

    Convenient to town centre

    Room 29: Bed mattress like concrete. Bed extremely noisey. Wtare pressure in sink low. Sink height too low. Toilet seat not fitting pan. Toilet very slow to refill. Cold bathroom no heating from radiator. Bath/shower access via tiled steps dangerous particularly when wet.Massive TV why?? looks way out of place in that room. Lack of available power sockets. Curtains poorly fitted therefore lets in too much light when closed. Had english brekfast day one was OK day 2 was not good - what would it be like on day 5 or 6!!!

    We really enjoyed our stay at your hotel .

    Our rooms were very good ,but you really need to get the bathroom extract fans working efficiently , they were so noisy when we switched the light on , that we had to take the key out and use the bathroom in the night in the dark .This needs to be sorted .

    I cannot really comment as I only stayed the one night. From my brief stay, though, I felt the the staff were most friendly and welcoming; the room was spacious enough and well maintained. It provided all that I would expect from a decent hotel.

    This is the fourth time I have stayed at South Lodge Hotel. It is convenient as it is in same town as some of my relatives, but I would not keep returning unless it had good staff, food and accommodation.
