I came here with my partner & a few of our friends, it was honestly such a beautiful place to stay. The detail of the hotel inside is so cute,... read more it has a luxury, Victorian style antique look. We had a very good day on the boats on the hotel lake, which was so much fun & we also fed the ducks whilst we was having our breakfast which was delicious and included in price as bed & breakfast. Lovely view from the penthouse bedroom on suite, very clean. Had a good night aswell & bar lady was lovely, including all staff I saw were very polite also. All my friends will be coming here as will my mum as she loves unique places like this. I would 100% highly recommend, to friends, couples & families!

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.

A lunch venue suggested by my Daughter to meet with family. What a find ! Very wide selection of snacks, meals, sandwiches and desserts. The food we had was superb.... read more We sat outside by the river and such a lovely setting. More, the service was incredible. So attentive, professional, courteous and efficient. In fact, I can say that this was the best service that I have seen in many years in the UK. Very well done everyone at Mill House. Thankyou.

Having to work away from home during a pandemic is hardly anyone’s cup of tea. Factor that into decent accommodation being even harder to come by than now a 2kg... read more bag of flour and you start to realise that things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. However having decent accommodation whilst working away can be the difference between a good job and a bad one. Prior to the Mill House we had to spend a week in a well known establishment (won’t say the name, but it rhymes with Gravelodge). Morale was low. So low it was measured in Kelvins. People began putting their hands in deep fat friers just to feel something other than sadness and despair. The Mill House changed all of that. Got a warm welcome immediately upon arrival and being here makes you realise that despite the fact the world is likely to experience the worst global mental and economic depression in human history, there are still things out there to look forward to and that life goes on. Furlough ? How about Fur no.
TL;DR - it’s pretty nice here. More

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.

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...

Took my older brother here for a 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.
