The White Hart Hotel is one of our much-loved properties. So expect home-from-home comfort, a warm welcome, great hospitality, and full hotel service. This traditional, timber-framed 16th-century coaching inn is full of character. Set in the old Essex town of Braintree, it’s a charming place to eat, meet, sleep and celebrate. And we make a great base to explore this fascinating ancient county. Our 32 tastefully furnished, cosy bedrooms are the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day. All blend contemporary décor with original features, plus everything you need to make yourself at home.
