    Chelmsford has good shops and restaurants.

    Chelmsford has good shops and restaurants. When we travel down by train we have easy access around places using the bus service. Train and bus stations or taxis are easy to get to. One of our favorite places to eat was the indian restaurant in Moulsham street.

    The park which the apartment looks onto is lovely place to walk around. The shops are very convenient. The buses stop outside the apartment...so great for travel. Train station not far away either too. Regarding restaurants there are plenty to choose from.

    Chelmsford is a lovely, friendly city with a great atmosphere. Shopping is a dream here and the old buildings in it give it character and charm. It is also clean and tidy. Can't wait to go back. Public transport is very good.

    Great fun for the hen do!

    Great fun for the hen do! The best taxi firm in Essex we found, after a lot of hassle from others, was ‘Your Cabbie’. Graham was our driver and was our knight in shining taxi! 01245 354040, highly recommend!

    Having lived in Chelmsford since 1960 i have seen lots of changes, i have now moved away but still go back to visit family, it is a lovely town with lots of nice shops and plenty of places to eat. There is a Cathedral in the centre of town which is worth going to see.Not much more to say except that it is a good place to visit if you are in nearby Colchester and the coastal towns of Clacton Walton and Frinton.

    so pleasantly surprised! the place was so clean, really good quality and the amenities is awesome, it has everything, even a washing machine. this place is the combo between the best thing about a hotel and a flat. the interior is really cozy and pretty, and it's so spacious. i felt right at home - it's way better than my own place so i just wanted to stay! there's a Tesco's express right across the street, and it's literally in the middle of chelmsford plus moulsham street has a lot of good restaurants

    This property is beautifully located by the River Chelmer in an upmarket development a few minutes walk just outside of Chelmsford city centre. The apartment is in a brand new development with modern furnishings, comfortable beds and sofa. Everything was exquisitely clean with adequate toilet roll etc. The host was very helpful and approachable and a pleasure to deal with. All pictures matched the apartment and was not dated or innacurate. Highly recommended!

    Location was excellent. Easy to find and in a side road with very little traffic. Off road parking made our arrival easier and it was a great place to stop if you want to explore Chelmsford and the surrounding area. Plenty of grocery stores within a 5 minute walk that open early every day including Sunday - and even a Sunday market in the Town Centre. Property was comfortable and clean, well furnished and with towels and bed linen included.

    Ashley was there to help us when we checked in made sure we had absolutely everything we needed. The place was spacious and well appointed. We had a great time. It's just a short walk to the station from the flat, and it's right in Chelmsford city centre so there was plenty of food and such within a few yards of the building really.

    Spotlessly clean. Great staff. Amazing room in terms of decor and history of the building. Great facilities in the room that you would need to relax and for a business trip. Dulco coffee machine. You will be at the back of the building for all rooms, so not noisy that way. Massive rooms.

    The New London Life is definitely the place to stay in Chelmsford. Very centrally located, next to a beautiful park, opposite Waterstones, M&S, and many other shops. I totally enjoyed my stay, and really hope to return before too soon. Thank you for making my stay so great!
