Property was overbooked so we ended up having to take a room with single beds instead of the queen bed we had paid for. Staff were great but whole setup very primitive and basic. You get what you pay for - a bed for the night and not much else. But the band playing in the bar downstairs was awesome!

Our stay at Chelmsford Hotel was horrendous! We chose this pub as we had a very early start (4am) for our Hunter Valley Ballon experience. So wanted somewhere quiet for a relatively early night. Started with bar staff ignoring our presence at check in, then not being able to find our booking. There was also a band setting up in the bar! They eventually booked us in, we had 2 rooms as there were 4 of us. Rooms were small, beds were uncomfortably soft and no airflow through the room. We eventually found the bathroom which had one ladies and one gents toilet in the same room, only one sink worked and just one shower! It was also quite disturbing to find a fridge, kettle & toaster in the bathroom! Music was loud and didn’t finish till 12, and my poor friends had the noise of either a refrigeration unit or air conditioner coming on and off right throughout the night.

Good for what we needed. Room a little small and bathrooms weren’t the cleanest

Room had no window or a/c and the french doors had to be closed and locked to keep the drunk guy from "having a cuddle" so it was very hot and stuffy. One shower only for all guests and it didn't have a lock and had a dodgy system of taps that if you dint turn on in the correct order, you could scald yourself with the hot water. Also note this is a pub with an all night licence, so after the live band the drunk karaoke starts

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights while attending a music festival. Although the hotel was little bit tired our room was clean, the shower was hot and the bed was comfortable! Not to mention the staff who went out of their way to get us into the festival (which was situated in Maitland) and then organised a cheap ride back for us in the evening. Perhaps not a 5 star retreat but I would definitely stay again. Thank you Chelmsford Hotel.

Basic facilities for overnight stay

Pros: Friendliness and assistance of staff.
Cons: Some noise reduction included in refurbishment.
Room very basic and dated. Outside traffic noise made settling difficult. I believe major refurbishment is taking place which should address and improve shortcomings.
