As well known for its excellent restaurant as it is for its cosy accommodation, Braintree’s White Hart Hotel is housed in a centuries-old coaching inn featuring beams and other quaint period details. While having retained its traditional charm, the hotel has been renovated to meet the needs of modern guests. Accessible by road from nearby locations such as Colchester, Britain’s oldest recorded town, the White Hart places guests close to regional attractions. Stansted Airport is just a 20-minute drive away, while Braintree Railway Station is one mile away.
We were attending a wedding on the Saturday in Essex and stayed at the White Hart in Braintree as it was close to the wedding venue and also to our friends for visiting on Sunday. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly and the room was comfortable. We had asked for a quiet room and got one. Only down side to hotel was no kippers for breakfast.
