The Mill house Hotel is a friendly run hotel offering comfortable accommodation.
The hotel is a Grade II listed building situated in a pretty location on the outskirts of Maldon.
With its own 200ft river frontage, the grounds of the hotel are peaceful and picturesque.
The river offers excellent fresh water fishing to include Pike, Perch, Bream, Tench, Roach and double figure Carp.
We offer basic bedrooms or en-suite single, double or family rooms. All rooms are comfortably furnished including colour televisions,
tea/coffee making facilities and most rooms have pleasant views. Ground floor rooms are available for the disabled.
I am posting this review again now as this hotel is trying to block my original from being kept on the site.
Took my older brother here for a... read more simple lunch the first week of October 2020. Neither of us had ever visited here before. Managed to park at the rear of the property and was initially impressed with the location by the canal to the mill and the fact that in better weather there are benches that could be used by the waters edge for a drink or a bite to eat. Approached the nearest door to the property which was open and appeared to have a sign on it. I went to read the sign to see if this was the preferred entry route from the car park in these Coronavirus aware times. The 'sign' on the door actually appeared as a blank white sheet of paper which I can only assume used to have some sort of notice or instruction on it prior to being bleach by the sun over many months or years. A gentleman appeared and gestured that we could enter by the door in question. I pointed out the blank sign and by this time we were on our way round to the front of the building towards the main entrance. There was another door which had a sign on it which included the words "do not enter" but there was now a lady present who tried to encourage us in through this door. I pointed out that it specifically said not to enter there and we continued to walk round to the main entrance, past a further door which is clearly permanently closed and finally we were in the building. Here we were quickly met by the lady we had seen momentarily on our way in and I asked if it was possible we could have lunch for two. She was very welcoming and pointed into the restaurant and said we could sit anywhere we wished. She was correct as there were no other customers there. At this point I realised that neither she or the gentleman that had spoken to us earlier were wearing face coverings of any kind. We sat down and shortly afterwards were presented with the menus. We were about to be asked for our contact details and as we were the lady apologised for 'the nonsense' and said 'and of course the virus doesn't even come out after 10 o'clock' to which I said I insist they have our details and enquired where their QR code was being displayed. The lady seemed surprised that I was keen to register but did then show me to a code on the wall which I then used. Most places I have been to recently would either already have a code available on the table or would bring a mobile version to you rather than expect their guests to be moving around the premises any more than they absolutely need to. We ordered two drinks and two main courses being bangers and mash, peas and gravy for my brother and chicken and ham pie, chips and peas for myself. The food took about 40 minutes to arrive during which I did check out the reviews on Tripadvisor which mentioned that the food could take some time but it would be fresh and good. When ours arrived, my brothers looked okay and he ate it. Mine didn't look too good. The pie was mainly a pile of broken pastry under which I found some very dry chicken and a few other pieces of filling. The chips were warm and soggy, like they had perhaps been heated up from frozen but on an oven that was not hot enough. My peas were fine. My brother finished his meal and I ate what I could. I was hungry and by now it was too late to get anything from another venue. I paid and we left. During our time in the building which I would estimate at about 75 minutes we saw three or four staff but no residents or other customers. At no time did we see anyone wearing any sort of face covering. I do not think this venue is taking the Coronavirus situation at all seriously, certainly not at lunchtime with non-resident diners. This alone would be enough to prevent me from returning while the pandemic persists but the attitude of the staff along with the very poor quality of a simple dish after such a long wait is really not something I ever wish to repeat.

I read a lot of good reviews, and was hopeful , and I was not disappointed, this is a fabulous establishment , one big bonus is the excellent Customer Service,... read more Carey and Richard are the Owners , they are so approachable, friendly get stuck in, nothing is too much trouble, Richard is also the Chef and I tell you cooks amazingly. The food is good, wholesome and good size portions which I more than appreciated. I found other Staff really friendly as well especially Rachel who greeted as when we arrived. The Hotel is a little isolated but that is definitely an advantage, you can take a walk into Maldon, through beautiful Countryside passing rivers and locks which will take you around an hour or drive in ten minutes. The room was so cosy and the bed really comfortable. They have a Bar which is well stocked and reasonably priced. You can see the passion they have for their Hotel and their Guests, this was definitely felt with the other guests too. I see this Hotel as a Gem in Maldon and one definitely worth a visit.

But the very best thing about the Mill House was the staff, they were all friendly polite and helpful, in every way, but special thanks to Robert, whose kindness, good humour and willingness to oblige made our holiday. its not the Ritz, and the artwork is terrible! but the prices are fair, and we felt at home and welcome, which is the most important thing, and a trick a lot of more up-market establishments could do well to learn.
